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.

Terrible place. Staff are lovely but the hotel owner is a greedy old fat man, he yelled at one of the locals working there in front of everyone for slightly mistaking and order, then called them 'darling' in a chauvinistic tone. I felt terrible for the staff having to work under him 24hrs a day, all he was doing was... More

Emily's cafe is an outdoor cafe which is open 24 hours, and is part of the Sportsmen's Hotel owned and managed by Emily and Bob. If you're booked into the hotel and arrive after business hours, the cafe staff will escort you to your room - and you check in the next day. There is a good selection of meals... More

If you are into darts, take a Wednesday night out there for dinner or a few bottles of beer and watch Port Vila Darts Association competition there. Be sure to check if the games are on before you dine there!

The staff at this place is amazing. I walked in there a few times already well past mid night after dancing and partying and they were cheerful and happy to serve me a life saving bite. you know the scene a little wobbly and too happy but they seemed to enjoy their work even at that odd hour.

I stayed at the hotel where Emily's cafe is so spent a lot of time at the cafe. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and really good, probably the best value I had the whole time I was in Vila. There is excellent free internet and the staff are all great. Emily and Bob can't do enough to make sure... More
