We have an environment that has 5 ESXi VMware hosts vCenter 5.1.
We have Local, SAN (EMC) and NAS as storage.

Is there a way to get a report per VM that will tell us which VM's VMDK is on what datastore how much is provisioned?

Well, Veeam ONE is free monitoring, with some limited features, but will give you most of overview you need:

- per VM, which datastores are used, and ratio provisioned/used
- per DATASTORE, which VMs use it, and ratio
- and much more

Did not try, but I think RV Tools only support ESX, but not ESXi hosts.
