Tradewinds resort was a great place to stay when on placement at the hospital, it was a 2 minute walk to the hospital, and only a quick 10 minute walk to town. Valerie the manager was extremely helpful and the room had everything we needed for our time there for 4 weeks. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to any... More

We were introduced to this resort by some friends we were traveling with who had stayed here before. We were really happy with the way the room was set up and Valerie is fabulous. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The resort is well located "in the suburbs" so it's quiet and has great views out to the lagoon. There are... More

I had a great stay at Tradewinds resort. The staff were very friendly, and the room had everything I needed for my time there for 4 weeks. There was a mouse in the roof which made a bit of noise and the shower temperature was quite variable but it was otherwise fine. I would highly recommend this place to anyone... More

My girlfriend and I (both medical students completing our elective placement) stayed at Tradewinds for 8 weeks in total. We stayed between April - June 2014. The accommodation is organised in discrete air-conditioned bungalows with your own bathroom and kitchen (including microwave, gas stove, fridge, kettle, toaster, etc.). We enjoyed the freedom of being able to purchase our own food... More

I stayed at Tradewinds in November 2013. It is quiet, clean and well positioned among the locals so not isolated by itself although quite close to other resorts if you want to eat out. The units are self contained with Air Con and the swimming pool is clean and lovely. Valerie is a good attentive host and up on all... More

I spent just one night at Tradewinds on a brief stopover before flying to Tanna. Valerie was incredibly helpful, especially as we arrived very late due to a delayed flight. As we sorted our stuff out she called the local restaurant to make sure we could still get dinner and then got the security guard to take us up there.... More
