I visited as a backpacker. Janelle nearly organized my entire 2 1/2 weeks in vanuatu including flights and accomodation to Tanna and Pentecost, even though she didn't directly benefit from it. All I can say is that her advise, also for activities on Efate and Lelepa Island, made the difference for my whole stay!!! Accomodation is worth the price, location... More

We stayed at Traveller's during Cyclone Pam. Jack & Janelle were absolutely fantastic all throughout the ordeal. The motel itself is really homely with ten or so rooms around a great little swimming pool. They helped us arrange a tour prior to the cyclone and afterwards helped us get in contact with friends and family to let them know we... More

Pleasant and affordable place in Port Vila 10 min walking distance to market place; clean rooms around a nice pool which is refreshing in the hot season; the friendly and helpful staff Jack and Janelle made the time we spent like homestay; many thanks especially for the early arrival and late check-out possibility when chosing Traveller's as center for our...

Hi Jack and Janelle, Thanks for all your helpful information while we stayed, with restaurant choices, transport, entertainment, etc. and helping us fit in with all the other guests. Everything other guests say is true. Great friendly staff, delicious organic breakfast, good meals available, refreshing pool when you return from town, fan and air con and very clean rooms. Could...

Janelle and Jack, and all the staff, make this place awesome! It easily became my base camp for my two weeks trip in Vanuatu over Christmas 2014. The rooms are clean and quiet, the staff is really friendly, and the breakfast delicious. The swimming pool adds a nice atmosphere around the big breakfast/dinner table; the perfect place to meet other... More

This place is awsome. The locals that work there and the owners Jack and Janelle really make you feel welcome. Apart from an affordable place they offer clean rooms, even dormrooms if you wanted. In the evening they also have a choice of food for good prices. Walkingdistance into town, and I even got a ride out of a local... More

If there was a six-star, I would award it, this place is really something, the rooms are good size & clean, aircon works great, lots of hot water for a leisurely shower, even umbrellas in the room for the daily summer downpour. Wifi is free and available in the eating & social area although not in the rooms unless you... More

The pool is great for swimming but is in a shaded area so not so great for sunbathing. Great value and easy to walk to town. Good security. Sociable if you want to be with other travellers. I would stay again

We booked for three nights, and we stayed for eight. From the moment you first arrive Jack and Janelle, the owners, make you feel part of a big and happy family, and no one is left out! Janelle must be Vanuatu's expert in helping to plan trips, and travel to the other islands. It's small and intimate with a fabulous... More
