I stopped at Deco Stop for lunch. A lovely spot up on the hill overlooking Luganville. Having ordered lunch and waiting a while I was thinking the service was pretty slow, but when my food arrived I realised it was becasue they must have been preparing it from scratch because it was fresh and delicious - not your usual reheated...

Grounds are immaculate, rooms very neat and tidy, our basic room had three small single beds that were perfectly comfy, hot showers, and a little fridge. The kitchen opens just after 6:30am and the continental breaky included in the room rate consists of unlimited toast you cook yourself, nice filter coffee, juices, weetbix, cornflakes and local fruit including passionfruits.

For us Brisbane to Espiritu Santo Direct in around three hours is a perfect escape to paradise. Plenty of unique things to see and do, Millinium Caves, Matevulu Blue Hole, Incredible beaches, amazing snorkelling and world-class diving. If you want to get that PB Wahoo, Trevally, Mahi Mahi or Tuna, Ben from Deco Stop lodge will make it happen with... More

Deco Stop Lodge is by far the best place to stay in Luganville! It's in a beautiful location - a great view over the channel between two islands, and an easy 5/10 minute walk into the town. Also close to the airport. Really delicious food, and sociable atmosphere. Rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Facilities to wash diving gear available,... More

I stayed here in 2004 and 2012. Pool with a great view, delicious food, rooms very clean and tidy. Hospitality from the girls was exceptional, they really looked after us! The grounds were maintained very tidy and the dive locker/clean gear area great!

The island of Santo is a fantastic holiday destination and Deco stop is a lovely place to stay there. Clean, friendly staff and fantastic food. Not the cheapest place by a long way but worth the money for us as so comfortable.

Had a great few days here while doing some diving. An absolutely lovely wee resort nestled on the hill in Luganville, just above the town. The room and other facilities were all very nice. Eating at the on-site resort was a treat, and meals were absolutely delicious, particularly the Thai Beef Salad! Compliments to the chef. The staff & service... More

Ben, Kim and all the staff members made sure that our stay at the lodge was unforgettable. We received excellent and friendly service day after day. We also did not have to leave the premises for dinner as the catering was of outstanding quality. I definitely recommend Deco Stop Lodge and will not stay anywhere else when I'm back in... More

This is arguably both the best hotel and restaurant in Luganville in one location. Ben and Kim (the owners) were so friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. They helped us when we had car troubles, they provided excellent advice on things to see and do, always made sure we had what we needed and even included us... More

The owner Kim could not have been more friendly or helpful. She was an absolute delight! She arranged our transport and our trip to Millennium Cave. The hotel has a lovely and tasteful traditional décor. The pool and dining area is very relaxing and the food was very good. Our room was immaculate, comfortable and a decent size. Like all... More
