“" What a Treasure"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Vale Vale Villas for 3 nights, and what a wonderful experience. The newly built villas were perfect with modern furnishings and a fully appointed modern kitchen. Once out on the balcony it was just a few steps onto the sand and into the water, or into the private plunge pool. The staff were friendly and very helpful, especially Joy and Dorothy who made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The area was beautifully quiet and a short distance from the hustle and bustle of Port Vila. The road outside the villas was not sealed, and transport to and from the villas was a bit tricky at times, but a 15 minute walk to the next resort provided buses to Port Vila without a problem. The staff at Vale Vale were great with organising transport if needed. It was wonderfully relaxing holiday for us both. We would recommend these villas to family and friends.

I reguarly visit Vanuatu and recently stayed at Vale Vale Beachfront Villas for the first time, absolutely loved the position and accomodation. The Villas are very well equipped and staff very helpful. Only tip would be to hire a 4WD, that's if don't mind catching a bus with the locals as the town centre is 15min away and the Pango Road is very rough....its well worth the drive though :)

A group of five friends hired two villas right on the beach, for a week. We were after some sun and relaxation and we had a fabulous time. There are a couple of local restaurants in easy walking distance, we went to Paradise Cove and Breakers, but a (bumpy) bus ride into town gives loads of options for other places to go. If you are planning snorkelling, you can walk off your balcony into the sea at Vale Vale (and if you are lucky see the local sea turtles), Paradise Cove is another place to try, but probably the best location we found was Hideaway Island (a local bus trip away). The staff are friendly and attentive, Dorothy is a stand out. The villas are well equipped and immaculately maintained and cleaned.

Travelling solo to Vanuatu may have been a daunting prospect for me but due to the help from Susan with the pre-organising of my trip and the assistance from Joy and Dorothy of Vale Vale during my 8 day stay, there were no problems at all. The massage should be an experience enjoyed more than once and the kayaking out to feed the turtles or just to paddle around in the bay is a great experience.

The villas are beautifully appointed and maintained by the lovely, smiling cleaning ladies, the gardeners are constantly beautifying the surroundings and the management and staff could not be more helpful and friendly.

I hope to visit again to introduce my husband to this wonderful place. I loved it so much I extended my stay by an extra two nights. As mentioned in other reviews, if you need to be close to entertainment, restaurants and bars, it is a bit of a trip into Port Vila and part of the Pango Road is due to be graded soon. However, there are a couple of resorts close by that do have restaurants and bars. I walked around 15 minutes down to Paradise Cove one evening to have a nice dinner and watch the spectacular sunset.

I recommend Vale Vale Beachfront Villas to anyone who needs to chill and recharge.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Vale Vale Villas in May - everyone made us feel SO welcome - we were even given an enormous squid by one of the local fishermen, which we cooked up in our well equipped kitchen ! Nothing was too much trouble, and Dorothy looked after us brilliantly ! Having a car was the way to go, as we were able to travel easily around the main Island and see other attractions, but it's easy just to hop on a local bus or taxi and head into Port Vila to do shopping or sightseeing. We absolutely loved the relaxed atmosphere, and of course, the serenity of the beachfront Villas. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Vale Vale Villas - it gets a huge "thumbs up" from us !

Room Tip: There are only 8 Villas, all are on the beach, and they are all great Villas.

This was our first trip to Vanuautu. An absolutely amazing location which truly is "beach front". One of the few places in the world where you can walk straight from your deck onto the sand and dive into the crystal clear water. We had an amazing week, relaxing on the day bed, reading and swimming. The villas are new and well equipped. If you are looking for a place to recharge the batteries then I would definitely recommend Vale Vale. The massage included in our stay was a nice touch.

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 2. All the villas are built on the beach.

My wife and I stayed for 2 weeks in July in our private 2 brm Villa right on the Beach. The location is second to none - Jaw dropping Ocean views, peaceful and tranquil surrounds, no other resorts / neighbours next to us ....just the sound of the ocean lapping up on the sand a mere 20 steps from the outdoor deck and day bed. Oh and private Plunge Pool !!!

These are Brand new Villas ( only 8 in total) are beautifully furnished with all the mod cons.
The fully appointed Kitchens enabled us the option to cook our own meals or choose to dine out as we so desired.
The local people are so friendly and thoughtful bringing fresh paw paw and coconuts to our front door.
The Location is as good as I have seen in Port Villa / Efate ie close enough to town and the markets 10 mins or $1.50 local bus ride!! yet it seems like you are a million miles away from everything ..its just so peaceful.
We have never had such a relaxing holiday and we travel a lot around the world.

The staff at Vale Vale from Dorothy who met us at the airport and provided us with our own local mobile phone and arranged a hire car at special rates to Joy, the on- site Manager, nothing was too much trouble.
There is so much to do right on your doorstep ie snorkelling with the clown fish, sea anename, and sea horses , watching the locals catch fish, Kayaking with the local sea turtles in the bay, scenic walks to Honeymoon Bay and up the hills behind the resort etc etc
We are already planning our next holiday to Vanuatu and Vale Vale Villas.... 10 out of 10
In a word Heaven!!!
