There are nicer places to stay
Posted Sep 8, 2014
Poppy's on the Lagoon has a nice location, and the two bedroom apartment we stayed in was huge, but that's where the goodness stops. The pools were tiny, the room was gritty and service was atrocious. Waiting 30 minutes for butter for our toast at breakfast, getting the wrong mains at dinner, and being served our entrees and mains at the same time? Not cool. Then there were the repeated attempts to get us to come to an orientation when all we wanted was to take a nap after an overnight flight, and the taxi driver friend of the manager who tried to rip us off - 1500vt for a ride? No way buddy...

Thank you for taking the time to review Poppys. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your time with us and hope that you will still consider us in the future :-) I will definitely be following up on the bad service you received from our restaurant. That is not acceptable and we apologise for any inconveniences that it caused it.
Poppys and its management do not take any part in taxi fares and or commission rates. We are more than happy to help negotiate a fare price, but we are in no way affiliated with any taxi services. It is good to note that taxis are generally much more expensive that the local bus service.
Thank you once again, and we hope the overall you enjoyed your time in Vanuatu and Poppys.
