If you are on a budget in Port Vila this is the place to stay, Bob arranged a tour of the island which was the highlight of our trip.

You could be doing a lot better in Vila than this spot. Try one of the many restaurant along the water. Food is nothing special, basically a fancier version of your local take out.

I felt terrible for the staff having to work under him 24hrs a day, all he was doing was... More
