I stayed for 1 week and was on a very tight budget. Bob, Emily and the other staff are great and do everything possible to help you out and give you information, even to the extent I was given a cash advance until I could access money. Rooms are spotless, as are the bathrooms. Good food at a great price.... More

Working for an NGO, a few days after the storm, we settled at Bob and Emily's. They discounted the price by 50% due to the situation and were more than helpful. They linked up with suppliers, stored some relief items free of charge, found great vehicle. We stayed there a week and all was made to accommodate our needs and... More

I had the pleasure of being in Vanuatu for a Conference. We stayed at the Hotel and I found that the staff were very friendly and it was a pleasure to draw on Bob's knowledge and recommendations for places to visit. The food was delicious and there was lots of it.

clean, friendly, close to city centre and lots of activities; What else you need? I had a single room and got a very good value for my money, especially compared to many other accommodations around; and: also the restaurant offers good meals for fair prices

The Sportsmens Hotel is a bit like a backpacker Hotel. The facilities are basic but you get a great feel for the Vanuatu way of life and you're a 10 walk from the centre of Port Villa. There is a 24 hour bar and Cafe. Assie Bob the manager seems to live in the cafe and is aways looking for... More

Stayed at The Sportsmens two weeks ago while on a business trip to Port Vila. Only for three nights, but I really cannot fault the Hotel. Yes it is not the Hilton, but for the price, location, and service you cannot beat it. There are other places to stay in a similar price range, but this place has dining facilities... More
