    Perfect Location

    Perfect stay, rooms clean, staff very friendly and helpful. The Espiritu has one of the main restaurants in town which was not only good food but extremely convenient. Also has one of the main dive shops attached for those interested in diving, if so highly recommend pacific dive. All in all a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend!

    Centrally located in town. Staff is friendly and helpful in arranging tours. The food in the restaurant was delicious. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. There was some traffic noise, but pretty quiet at night. Would stay here again!

  • 8.0.Very good

    This is a nice property right in the centre of the town. The only disappointing element of my stay was that part of my family couldn't get to Santo due to a medical incident and the staff at The Espiritu said they would consider a refund on the unused room we booked. They never replied to me - if they wanted to decline it, they could have. An answer would have been nice.

    We also stayed in 2013. The refurbishment is excellent and has a mini resort feel but right in the centre of town. On-site restaurant has terrific food and efficient service. The pool is a fantastic addition. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and rooms are serviced daily. We don't mind stairs, but as rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd level, it might be difficult for some.

    My wife and I have stayed in numerous hotels across Vanuatu and this is one of the best . All the staff are well trained and deliver a quality of service that is often missing in other accommodation.

    Really liked it

    Right in the middle of town which is fairly shabby. Looks okay from the street but once you step inside it is a little piece of paradise. Pool is gorgeous, dining room couldn’t be prettier. Friendly staff. Comfortable room a/c keeps it chill.

    Local Stay

    We have eaten at the Tu Restaurant many times, but we spent our first night at the Espiritu just recently. We booked a family room on the third floor (counting the ground floor as #1). It was quite a contrast to our usual lodging in Vanuatu. For one thing, there were two bathrooms attached to the room, and both showers had hot and cold running water. There was not an outhouse anywhere in smelling distance. Good fly screens keep out mosquitoes in the unlikely event that any find their way to the third floor of this downtown location. Electric power to everything but the refrigerator is controlled by the room key. When we came in for the evening, we turned on the air conditioner and shut the windows. This effectively shut out (most of) the outside noise. My wife borrowed a couple of DVDs from reception. They were children's movies for our daughter to watch on the in-room TV and DVD player. I perused the internet. It was slow and had a 7168 MB limit for 7 days, but any internet in Santo is a big plus. The beds were very comfortable. We slept well. Our daughter enjoyed the pool as she always does when we come to the restaurant. The complimentary continental breakfast was available to order, rather than on buffet, but it was ample. If you are looking to experience the real Vanuatu, then this is not for you. If you are looking for comfort in the heart of Santo Town, then this is the place for that.
