We enjoyed our 7 day holiday in Vanuatu and our stay at Tradewinds which is situated only a short walk away from Port Vila Township within a lovely well kept garden. Our studio bungalow was comfortable, clean, mosquito proof and equipped with everything we needed. The sheltered patio with its pleasant views provided a great space to relax. Lovely Valerie,...

My daughter and I spent a week at Tradewinds. The property is clean, central to shopping restaurants and transport, with the feel of being in village life as well. We had great views from the pool. so quiet and relaxing. A short stroll to the local store to buy an egg to cook for breakfast was quite the novelty. The... More

I stayed here for a couple days in October as a quick reprieve from island hopping and staying in basic village bungalows. Tradewinds is located on a bluff above the water on the east side of Port Vila, it has several separate private units with full kitchen, bathroom, TV, bed and extra cove. It's walking distance to town but just... More

Stayed in one of the cottages for a weeding that i was attending on the island. Room was large and spotlessly clean. Location was excellent as the wedding took place in the venue next door. Also a trip into the town center was only a short trip in a taxi.

I really enjoyed my stay at Tradewinds with my family. The resort is close to town, but not in town. Each unit has a small kitchen. There is a cool ocean breeze. Overall had a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Good location for those doing hospital placements- just a block away (down a slightly quaint dirt road with a very local village feel). A little further from the city where the majority of restaurants and attractions are, but still in walking distance.

We stayed for 4 nights in November and were disappointed as place had run down since our last visit 3 years earlier. Floors in room were sticky and dirty, hot water in shower was not consistent and we needed to ask for glasses in the room. Was also very noisy at night. We will stay somewhere else next time.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. However, this has possibly been posted under the incorrect Tradewinds Resort as : A) There was only 1 "couple" who stayed in November and that was for 1 night only B) The resort had no 4 nights stays in November, nor October, nor December Regards Valerie More
