I visited an Aussie ex pat friend in Port Vila and he suggested this place as comfy and not too expensive. He was right. The rooms were clean (enough), and all had UNBELIEVABLE views. Rooms: Spacious, basic. Shower worked well. Air con worked. Tile floor. Sink, microwave etc for budget travellers. Tiny vanity unit in bathroom, adequate light. No mini... More

Very clean rooms with basic cooking facilities. Staff are very friendly & helpful. Lovely watching the sunsets every night from the balcony. Views over the harbour, enjoyed watching the little canoes & fisherman. Very good restaurant downstairs. Nice walk into town with lots of smiles & greetings.

We stayed here for five days in April as part of an extended stay through out Vanuatu. Although close to town very tired and pool very public as well as exposed to everyone who wanted to smoke. Restaurant average and needed a good clean. Staff were lovely and made up for a lot.
