NO CYCLONE DAMAGE. Travellers is up n running. Lots of resorts are not opening yet so now is cheap flights. So close to town, just a short walk. Staff friendly n trustworthy. Very affordable and prices of most meals are only $10.00 aus. The local chef is amazing. Washing is done for you and back in your room asap. BYO... More

From the minute we arrived we found all staff going out of their way to make our stay comfortable, personalised and memorable. The owners Jack & Janelle are so personable. Their friendly & warm approach makes you feel as though you're the only guests staying there....whether or not the motels at full capacity. We found them to be extremely helpful... More

We recently stayed at the Traveller’s for a week and had a wonderful time. The staff and hosts Jack and Janelle are extremely helpful and have a vast knowledge of Vanuatu. The rooms are comfortable and clean and we loved the communal kitchen and friendly atmosphere when guests returned for the day and all discuss the day’s activities. The motel... More

T.B.M. is just the best! Jack and Janelle and staff are the motel! With close proximity to main street, personalised service from all staff, great meals, budget-minded accom, safety and courtesy, where else would you go? We have stayed some 10 times, and it is a second home to us. Great company from other guests, but with privacy - if... More

Delightful place to stay. Like staying in Island bungalow but with good facilities and easy access on foot to downtown Vila. Excellent Nivan cook and lovely small clean pool. Friendly. Some noise from central area at night but we had gone to bed early. Comfort not luxury.

Thumbs up! We only spent one night there, but Janelle helped us arrange quite a few tours and my overnight trip to Tanna as well. Note that we were there only a few days after electricity was restored (because of cyclone Pam) but everything was smooth and the pool was filled with nice crystal clear water. The room was kinda...

I got the bends in Vanuatu & found myself stranded for a week just after cyclone Pam with little more than the clothes I stood in. Pro medical organised my stay at Traveller's & I couldn't have asked for a better place. The owner lent me clothes & bathers so I could enjoy my unplanned stay. All my gear was... More

I stayed here with a group of volunteers who were involved in volunteering in Vanuatu during cyclone Pam. I was trying to source accommodation a group and came and spoke to Jack about what we could do. Jack was very welcoming and friendly and came up with a great solution to help us all. Bear in mind that the situation... More

Jack and Janelle were drunk, loud and party write outside our room , i think that they should have been more professional ,considerate and were quick to charge us for 3 nights when we only stayed 1 ( private parties should not be held at your place of business ) we were there to help and support Vanuatu after Pam...
