Chantillys on the Bay

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location's great, particularly for business trips. Lovely outlook, over the bay. Close to town, with nearby restaurants. The staff are very friendly and helpful. But the hotel is looking tired, past its prime. Could do with a renovation.

This place was fabulous. Our room was spacious and had an amazing ocean view, was very clean and the amenities exceeded our expectations. The restaurant bar offered a nice place to eat or drink in the comfort of the ocean view. The food was delicious and service good. It was great to wonder down at anytime during the day to grab and coffee, something to eat or drink. The Chantilly's is central enough to walk to the shops or markets.

stayed for 8 days,rooms need a bit of tlc.but the view is to die for, over looking the loverly port vila bay.restuarant is very nice, the food is great, not all the menu is available all the time because of cyclone cook. found the wi fi great.the hotel is now owned by the ramarda group so upgrades are starting soon ...would i recommend chantillys to friends and others 100% yes.we will be back next year..

I am here for work and been staying for one week. The rooms are spacious and clean - but more importantly the food here is amazing, some of the best in the Pacific. The service staff at the restaurant need training - but the rest of my experience has been excellent.

First off, let me tell you that the staff at this place are genuinely wonderful and very hard working. It is no reflection on them that Chantilly's - once a good place to stay in Port Vila is running down in a big way, There seems to be a general lack of care about its management. The restaurant once full and lively is now sadly a very lonely place for breakfast lunch or dinner. We put this down to the fact that Port Vila itself has come up a notch in regards to places to eat - over 40 restaurants in the vicinity of the city. Breakfast used to be great here but now consists of stale cornflakes and a set menu one has to ask for and which cannot be deviated from. Our bathroom was a shocker. The shower water never drained completely away leaving a puddle of dirty water on the floor. There were long black hairs on the toilet which were never cleaned away and we had to ask for our toilet to be fixed as it refused to flush. (It was fixed promptly however). There are many other points - including a TV that shows mostly French language channels which highlights the tastes of the new owner presumably as there was more variety on our previous visit. Its just sad to see the place so run down. We will not be returning.

We stayed at Chantilly's for 5 nights. We had a 1 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor with a magnificent water view. The space in the room was very generous, with full kitchen and a balcony. Air conditioning was great, as this time of the year temperatures go from 26 to 33ºC, but the humidity levels got above 85%. The location is quite practical, near the centre, but quiet. The restaurant downstairs was great for breakfast, but my suggestion is that you have the fish of the day or a steak with french fries for dinner. You will not regret. The drink of choice for me was a mineral water with ice and lemon, called Cascade. So refreshing. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Wifi in the room was working well.

A very nice facility that serves nice food, you can have a swim in the deck pool, or just sit there and enjoy the view. Four people in the group, four different styles of breakfast - eggs Benedict, a "giant" breakfast, a mix of sides instead of the actual breakfast dishes on offer, and three component omelet. No prisoners left, everyone ate the lot! All washed down with coffee and/or juices.

Excellent hospitality! Welcomed like royalty. Amazing view while drinking my Pina Colada on our balcony. I loved every second and would definitely come back again. Food was tip top with the freshest seafood I've ever tasted. This place was unreal. My favorite time was snorkelling in the lagoons. Thanks guys for a great trip.

Alone or with family, this place is magical. Direct on the beach, with beautiful views, and at walking distance from everything in town, the Chantilly Hotel is in its price range the best place to be in Port Vila. The rooms are confortable and the staff is on top.

The photos and advertising of this property are totally inaccurate. Iron didn't work, towels worn thin and ripped as were the sheets. All of the linen smelled of smoke. Air conditioner iced up and stopped working. Pool was small and dirty. Definitely not value for money.
