Stayed here with my partner Sue for two weeks in October 2013. We both liked it very much. Yes it's basic but everything required is in self contained room - fridge, gas cooker and bathroom. Great location right on the beach. You won't be spending much time in your room. Free wireless internet works - can get a bit slow... More

I really liked this place. The owner, Solomon keeps the place clean (can't figure out what happened with the other poster. It was super clean when I was there) and is always milling about and is very helpful with everything I needed. There's a fridge and stove in each room and the back area is fully stocked with every kitchen... More

I didn't expect a lot for the price but was pleasantly surprised. The motel is on the bay with hammocks to lie in and watch the locals fishing the reef. There is a pool,more rustic than usual but still enjoyable. The rooms are very basic, en suite though and you can cook in your room with a fridge and hot... More

After I paid for my 3 nights dorm, I was taken to the room. I found two dead cockroaches on the bathroom floor and few dirty hair. The place looked filthy. That was enough for me to get out there asap. I could do basic but couldn't do dirty and filthy. The kitchen was outside/open and the plates and utensils... More

Travelled on New Years Day 2012 to Vanuatu, Booked a cheapie place as it was just my friend and myself with no kids to please. I would describe Blue Pango as a "would be, if I could be place", its got the location/ positon, the atmosphere but the rooms need a little maintenance. Don;t get me wrong from that description,...

No it is not Breakas nor Holiday inn but does not pretend to be. All rooms face the sea and the pool.Rooms are basic but a reasonable size bed for 2. Plenty of utensils, crockery and cutlery for self cooking. The grocery at the top of the lane is poorly stocked but does tasty food to eat in or take... More

Tired but clean accommodation. Spent 8 nights there and most of the time travelled around the island. Blue Pango is on the beach but you can not swim there. Huge waves. Corals. Pool very small. Bus to town 150vt. Owners did not speak good English but were friendly and helpful!

We were looking for some budget accommodation in Port Vila and this suited. Right by the beach and only a trip bus ride into town. If you would like a bit of five star treatment, just head next door to Breakas and chill out on their beach. If you are heading here from the airport, DO NOT catch a taxi,... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Blue Pango for 3 nights in one of their double self contained rooms and thought it was a nice little place. We arrived at the airport and opted for the easiest option of a taxi which cost 3000V but we were told that you could maybe catch a local bus there for a third... More
