The Studio room we had been allocated was only average for the price and too far away from water and facilities, so we upgraded. It had a spa which we used once only. Extremely noisy when operating which did not make the spa a relaxing experience,
so the spa was superfluous The 'complimentary' breakfast on our first day was very average (Half of 1 sausage? Sausages can't be that expensive in Vanuatu) The TV in the bungalow was far too small. Soundproofing in bungalows is obviously a problem. Had a movie playing (Not loudly) and told by neighbours on other side of common wall ,to turn it down. But I think they may have been simply old farts.
I think the $30 per night extra for the upgrade was too much, it wasn'ta $30 dollar a night better room. On a positive note, the cleanliness was great, the ladies who serviced the room daily did a great job. In fact all the staff were great and extremely helpful and polite. If one is looking for quiet and solitude, Poppy's is good.
