We stayed for 5 nights at this beautiful resort.
Rooms were comfy and clean and swimming pool and deck area was spacious and well equipped with chairs and shade for those with a paler complexion who need to escape the heat! Dave the resort manager is happy to help with any questions or queries and is only to happy to make arrangements for tours and transfers.
Food and drink was a bit on the pricey side but as the resort is only a short walk to Luganville town, it is easy enough to make your own meals in the communal kitchen provided for all guests.

Still coming to terms with how expensive Vanuatu is (spoiled by countless Bali holidays). This place was a welcome relief. Good food at good prices. Rooms very good value as is the included breakfast which is more than adequate. We grabbed a seaview room which was nice for the breeze. There is an expanse of grass between you and the beach so dont budget on being just metres from the water.

We still wanted to be self sufficient so there are options here to be that way but the ability to actually achieve this is difficult. Town offers practically nothing unless you enjoy cat food like tuna and corned beef in tins. A tin of baked beans will set you back nearly $aud5! We opted for some fresh rolls and snaggers (with onions) and relived a classic Bunnings Sausage Sizzle lunch. My next challenge is making something tastey out of 2 minute noodles :-(

It is all part of the adventure! My carton of Tusker cools in the fridge so worst case its a liquid lunch.

Thank you for your review and kind words. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to explain the high price of some products in Vanuatu.

The Government of Vanuatu relies heavily on income from import duties applied to imported products which, when combined with freight costs, custom clearances and VAT inflates the cost of just about anything that comes from overseas. Pizza is an example where many favourite varieties are made totally from imported ingredients some of which are extremely expensive compared to the same in Australia. The cost of some beverages including bottled beer, wine and spirits can also make your head spin but have been kept to reasonable levels in recent years. Of course the rate of exchange is also relevant.

In contrast locally produced foods provide excellent value especially the world famous organic grass fed Santo Beef. Freshly caught tuna, mai mai, poulet, crayfish and local oysters are served at bargain prices. Fresh organic fruits and vegetables from our daily markets also provide excellent value. If Kava is to your liking it is also available at very low cost.

As you know at Beachfront Resort we try our best to provide the best possible value to our guests. We have four accommodation choices of excellent quality to suit various budgets as well as a wide choice of meals with something for everyone.

Don't forget that visiting an island paradise like Santo is an exhilarating experience and all the smiles are free.

Have just enjoyed three excellent nights at Beachfront.

We stayed in a Starfish room, which was great value, clean and comfortable. The resort is in great condition and evidently very well run, with spacious gardens, a large, airy dining area and a big pool. The views across the gardens to the beach and channel are excellent.

Dave and the team looked after us very well, with plenty of good advice on what to do. If you have a moment, Dave also has a very interesting presentation on the WW2 history of the area, which brings it to life.

Also we highly recommend a kayak up the river!

We spent 12 nights at the Beachfront and had one of the best holidays ever! While our accommodation was basic, the rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. Dave helped us arrange tours and dives and gave us good advice on what to do and who to do it with.

Beachfront resort is a sort walk from Luganville, it has an amazing pool, kayaks to use. bungalows have their own kitchen and bathroom, starfish rooms have a bathroom and a common kitchen! the food served at the restaurant was amazing, the local beef is incredible, the staff were very friendly and helpful, even helped me to bed one night when I had a couple to many Tuskers! Staff can get in contact with a dive instructor if you want to learn or if you have experience, theres a common TV room with dvds and a collection of books
