Iririki Resort is fantastic for families. We loved the staff, the swimming pools, the resort facilities and all the little added extras like a washing machine in the room - so useful! We absolutely loved our stay and the staff made our holiday!

Staff were lovely, pool was always clean. Ferry across to Villa was great. Snorkeling from the island was great. A Negative would be the buffet breakfast wasn’t all that great. I have stayed once before and would stay again.

Wasn’t exactly as we imagined to end our last 2 nights on our honeymoon. Food & drinks were pricey and not too nice. We didn’t use the pools, sunset one was crowded with locals and infinity was filled with hotel guests. Our room which was premium waterfront was beautiful though! Take insect repellent is my number 1 tip!

Loved the Island location but closeness to town

Pros: Loved the staff Loved the location Loved the accommodation
Cons: The Gym needs an overhaul. Consistency in buffet breakfast and level of service. Having a second coffee machine so hot drinks available all day
Location: Excellent location Central to the town Plenty of taxi's and buses nearby
Overall really enjoyed our stay at Iririki. The staff were fantastic and so friendly. Our Fare overlooked the town so we had the music playing until 2am!! Found this a little frustrating as it was so peaceful during the day and then the quietness was spoilt at night. I wouldn't stay again in a room overlooking the town. Loved the ferry service, never had to wait long and always available. During our stay there was a wedding being held. The level of service provided to other guests was definitely lower, with management running around after the wedding party and other guests not being made such a priority. The gym needs some TLC. Equipment is good but very dirty, tired and unloved. The A/C didn't work and the toilet/shower facilities in that area were appalling. But again the staff were great bringing us some towels and water whilst we were using the facilities. We loved the fact there there were staff being trained and were very happy with the quality of snorkelling equipment provided. Little frustrated that I couldn't get a hot drink at 11am as the coffee machine was being cleaned. I would expect that a 4.5 star hotel would be able to provide a hot drink !! Would definitely recommend taking mozzie spray with you !

Dear Gill, Thank you very much for having taken the time to publish your review on Wotif.com, your feedback is much appreciated. Indeed we should and are able to produce hot beverages, there seemed to be much confusion caused by the coffee machine being out of action. Yes there should possibly be a second coffee machine, this is something we will look at. Due to high calcium levels in the water we do have to clean the machines regularly and the product used does inhibit use thereafter for some time. Please accept our apologies. I have spoken to the Food and Beverage staff responsible for this lapse in service. Thank you for making Vanuatu your vacation destination and also for choosing to stay with us at Iririki Island Resort & Spa. Warm regards,
