Jack and Janelle were wonderful in helping us in exploring Port Vila to our liking. They helped to arrange a quad bike for the day, pointed out areas we needed to see and the best way to get there, and gave great suggestions for food.
Traveller's is what you'd expect for the price. It is clean, tidy, and provides the basics. When you're not spending all day in the room (who does?) it provides a great base to enjoy Efate. The coffee is strong, the pool is refreshing, and the beer is always cold! Jack even went to his favorite coffee place and purchased us a bag of coffee to bring home! They definitely try to please their guests, and we are very grateful.
Tips: Save your money and get a bus instead of taking a taxi. Most places the bus will take you there for 300 Vatu as opposed to 1000 Vatu per person in a taxi. The system is easy: if a license plate has a B in the beginning, it's a bus. When it starts with a T, it's a taxi. You may want to carry around a map of port vila since some of the bus drivers had trouble getting back to the motel.
The Blue Lagoon is AMAZING! The color of the water is breathtaking, and the rope swing set up by the locals is fun to try. Be expected to pay entry fees wherever you go. Mele Cascades, Hideaway Island, Blue Lagoon, Turtle Bay. Everything costs you, but they are definitely worth it!

- Traveller's Budget Motel is Port Vila's best value for money accommodation. Despite our budget category, the owner-managers have meticulously attended to every detail inside and out, to ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. The difference is apparent as soon as you step foot onto the property. The gardens are beautifully landscaped, rooms are tastefully decorated and well lit, showers are clean, sheets are crisp and rooms serviced daily. We believe everyone who visits Vanuatu is entitled to five-star hospitality. All rooms have cold remote controlled air-conditioning as well as ceiling fans, en-suite with shower, kitchenette, bar fridge, microwave and TV. Each room has free data and wireless internet connection. An outside nakamal with full cooking facilities overlooks a sparkling blue 8.5 Metre pool. This is a relaxing place to sit and read. Located just 10 minutes walk from the shopping and restaurant precinct of Port Vila, the beautiful lagoons, beaches and attractions are either a short walk or drive away. ... more less
