The first comment i would make is that the photos do not depict the beauty of this place.Unlike a lot of sites photoshop gives a false impression. Kim and Ben are the perfect hosts,not in your face but always aware of your needs. The staff are as good as the hosts,there but not there. The food is perfect, from breakfast... More

Stayed here last week with my son for a week and it was well worth it, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Excellent food, with a frequently varying menu - much more so that we generally find. You can find cheaper food in town, but the quality of the food at Deco was such that we only ventured out twice.... More

Deco is in a great location to explore santo. Just a short walk down the hill to Luganville and close to the airport. It is clean and well presented. Managed well by Ben and Kim. They are both efficient and punctual. Their staff communicate well and are very friendly. The food is definitely amongst the best on the island. Overall... More

I stayed here for one week in the dorm rooms and thoroughly enjoyed my time here. As a female solo traveler it's essential to have simple amenities like a hot shower and clean bed but deco lodge is a budget travellers dream. The shared rooms are equipped with a small bar fridge , kettle and small bench top , small... More

This place is a gem on Espiritu Santo and perfect for those that enjoy a quiet, relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Perched up on the hill, the views over the Segond Channel are stunning from either the pool/ restaurant/ bar area or the room verandahs. The food is absolutely fantastic and we found there was no need to go anywhere else. Daily... More

Our group traveled to this paradise in 2007, we were assisting at the only hospital delivering babies, this was a wonderful experience, the hotel was adequate and comfortable. The dining was good, no bad meals. If you Scuba they are the place.

First, the location. It's a short walk/drive from the main shopping strip of Luganville, but with the most glorious panoramic vista that you can imagine. It nestles into the hill behind an imposing walled entrance that practically guarantees not only security but peace and quiet. Indeed, the outstanding feature of the Lodge is the serenity you experience the moment you... More

Stayed at Decor Stop for 6days for work. Lovely place in a fantastic location, clean and efficient. The staff were fantastic. Philly looked after us very well and Rosie's magical creations in the kitchen were amazing. These women made the place feel like a home away from away with a master chef! Sleep was a little challenging because our fellow... More

I have been coming to Santo regularly over the last couple of years. Every trip we dine at Deco Stop. The meals are excellent and match the beautiful views and setting. Last week's poulet fish and tropical salsa was delicious. Thanks to you Kim and Ben and your friendly staff.... I'll be back Gill Garchow
