Going by my title, this is obviously this is going to be a favorable review. I could not find fault with Fatumaru or it's wonderful staff.
What elevated this accommodation above my expectations were the little added extras. Mozzie coils & insect spray thoughtfully provided, unlimited use of kayaks and paddle boards, complimentary booking of tours, electronic banking, therefore saving fees when checking out), and especially, the friendly, helpful staff.

We arrived at 11.30 pm at night at the Ocean View Apartments by taxi which was arranged but no key was available. The taxi driver contacted the owner who told him to take us to the Tropicana resort for the night. I was worried about this but was pleased to see that the temporary accomodation was lovely. We were taken to the Ocean View Apartments in the morning and was please with the beautiful view we had from our balcony being on the 3rd floor.

"Lovely location under New Management 1st Sept 2014"
The new manager of 2 weeks met us on arrival and apologised & explained there was a lot of upgrading & refurbishing taking place as new owners had just taken over on 1st Sept 2014. This was evident during the 3 days we stayed there with servicemen going about their business which didn't hinder us at all.
We booked a Harbour View room which was well worth the extra money although they could do with more outdoor furniture. This will probably arrive under new owners. We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of this small hotel and to be able to enjoy a drink or a meal out over the water and watch cruise ships going in & out the harbour was a real bonus... Very pretty at night. The restaurant service was slow but I'm sure that will improve in time. We used the swimming pool a lot rather than the sea but that was choice.
Possibly a bit cramped for families but OK for couples.
We enjoyed being so close to town.... 5 minutes walk along the waterfront took us to the centre of Port Vila.
Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend.

Second stay in three months. It is just the right distance from the city centre and the staff are exceptional. Better coffe (and much cheaper) than anywhere else in Vanuatu and 99% of Sydney. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

We took our parents here as a surprise for their 50th wedding anniversary, and loved every minute of it! We had two small children with us (2yo and 4yo), and everyone - young and old - just loved our stay. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite, and could not do enough for us. Our parents had an overwater villa which was just beautiful, and they had stairs from their back deck down into the lagoon, and were able to swim from there. A million fish and starfish - it was amazing! The giant swimming pool was great, and there was a large children's pool which the kids loved. The hotel has plenty of facilities to keep everyone entertained. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Quest apartments for a nice relaxing 12 days. Alan, Maggie and the staff team all made us so welcome, providing us with a clean comfortable room, a generous daily breakfast, recommending activities and were a great source of local information. With their help we were able to settle in quickly and have the basics to get around, Good quality meals were available with theme night each evening. The staff always had a wide smile ready to greet you each morning, and nothing is too much trouble. The buses (minibuses) around Port Vila are inexpensive and frequent. Vanuatu people are gentle natured people and are at no time intrusive, as can be the case in many places. We can recommend the Cascades falls. Walk right to the top one, swim over to the waterfall and get a powerful tingling massage from the water! Also snorkelling at Hideaway Island. It's the best we found.
Whilst on the subject: If you head that way, take great care snorkelling off Breakas resort, in fact DO NOT go out to the reef at high tide. 2 of our party of 4 -both strong swimmers- were swept off the reef by dangerous offshore currents just as we got near the surf break and were VERY lucky to get back in. (If this happens swim parallel with the beach until you are out of the rip. Don't try to fight it as the water is stronger than you and you will quickly get fatigued) Beyond believe that beach isn't patriolled!
We will definitely be heading back to Quest Apartments. Warm thanks to you all :)

Very good place to stay. Affordable price, helpful stuff, a lot of bonuses such as for example kayak and snorkelling equipment hire for free. The only problem had to deal with is to explain the bus driver where the vila is (some of them don't know where to go).
