I stayed here for only one night as part of a Unitr Airlines package (with upgrade) to visit the volcano. My advice is not to go with Unity as you get in at after 1 PM and leave at 9:30 the next day so don't have time to vsit the cultural village or do anything other than climb the volcano. Book direct with the property and fly Air Vanuatu instead and save money to boot.
Unity had caled the hotel just before our charter arrived but there was confusion and no one to pick us up, so we just had time for a snack before doing the volcano tour by the time we got to the resort. One there, however, all was well and we were well looked after.
The rooms are simple but the setting lovely. The menu is limited but the food good. (Other resorts feed their guests a few pieces of bread and fruit. and have no hot water.)
The volcano tours are wonderful. The best view is usually on the higher left rim, but children and elderly can go to the easier right rim for a view of the smaller crater. Bring some glasses and eye drops as you will get volcano ash blown into your eyes. Also, bring a sweater or jacket as it gets cold. Best time to see the volcano is at dawn, but no operator runs dawn tours. Speak to your driver as to whether they would be willing to set off at 3 AM to take you and if they agree the manager's will let you go. The cost to go to the volcano a second time is half price or about $60 per person.
I wished I would have have had two nights here.
