A great place to stay in Vila. When I arrived at the airport I was picked up by a very nice young man, Thomas. Return transfers only $10. The place was quiet, friendly with a lovely waterfront veiw. Clean & tidy. It's not too far from town and for only a few dollars Thomas will drop you off to anywhere... More

We had a lovely family holiday here for one week. The Bungalows are comfortable and perfect for a family of five. The bathroom was a little tired but clean, we had intermittent hot water and a shower that tended to leak onto the floor. The gardens were lovely and a nice place to spend the day. Tara beach is off... More

We stayed in Tara Beach for two nights before flying out to Tana Island the next morning. First of all, the bungalows are very nicely furnished with flowers all over and they are very clean. Not every bungalow has hot showers though. Chistine, the cook is very nice and just sits with you for a chat. Having said that, the... More

I cannot imagine a more welcoming location. Sala and his family and staff were very warm and friendly. I stayed for a week and feel like I have left with real friends on the other side of the world. My list of favorite things about Tara Beach is long: snorkling, kayaking, being dazzled by the darkness of the sky and... More

My family of 4 decided to go to this resort for a meal and a swim a couple of weeks ago. My husband and one of my sons had dropped in to do the same thing a couple of years ago and had really enjoyed the experience, especially the snorkelling. We arrived early afternoon, parked under a shady tree and... More

We were delighted with Tara Beach Bungalows, and sad to have to leave after a short stay. It is locally owned and run on a simple unpretentious basis. Beachfront location across the bay from Port Vila. Only ten minutes from the airport - with a free pickup - and twenty minutes from town. The staff are lovely, Eric the manager... More

The family that owns Tara Beach are the most friendly caring people they would do anything for you. The suroundings are beautiful with a well kept garden, the snorkeling would of been good but when we were there it rained ever day and the sea was choppy, the weather is one thing you cant control unfortunately. The bungalows are comfortable... More

This was our second visit to Tara, myself (mum)15 year old boy and 12 year old twins. We stayed 10 nights and had a great time, my children love the place. Something's had changed from the year before, and there was a few hiccups with the hot water etc. But it's still great value and the people are wonderful. Lulu... More
