“Nice place , great view & nice staff”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The view from the pool deck is great. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The vegetarian food was very good.

The evenings was nice to chat with others divers sharing our experiences and get to know other divers.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Luganville, I'd highly recommend the Deco Stop. Friendly and ever helpful hosts Ben and Kim, wonderful views over the surrounding garden and waters to Aore Island, and great food (and scrumptious cocktails). The open, outdoor dining area and verandahs lend to the relaxed atmosphere. My (adult) daughter and I recently stayed for 3 nights in a twin-share room with a queen and a single bed - very comfortable. It's a 20 minute walk to the town centre (noting there's a bit of a hill on the way back as the lodge is located high up in the village), though the tour buses/taxis will also pick up from the lodge. Free wi-fi available.

Room Tip: The rooms off the verandah overlook the garden and distant sea, and have individual cane chairs and...

The Deco Stop is a great place to stay! The people are as great as the view. Ben and Kim really made us feel at ease and at home.They went the extra mile and you can tell they truly enjoy doing what they do. Their staff is incredible as well. Everyone from the ladies cleaning the rooms to Marilyn and Philly serving you at the restraunt. Also the food was so good. I found myself looking forward to what the specials for the day would be. The Deco is the spot to stay in Santo, Vanuatu! Not to mention it is very relaxed and was very quiet.

Room Tip: The family room with AC is great! Get the AC!

Spent two nights here for work at the hospital. Great location with amazing views looking over the sea. Cool nice breeze always blowing over to keep things at the right temperature. Awesome staffs who even ironed my clothes for me in the mornings! Food was always yummy as well. Relaxed atmosphere with great nostalgic music playing at the right volume in the background. From what I hear this is probably the best place to stay at in Luganville. A little bit expensive but guess the quality endorsed the charges. Will most definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the dining area are always a plus

We had planned a South Pacific cruise out of Sydney but because I forgot to pack the passports we had to catch the ship in Luganville. There is a direct flight on Tuesdays from Brisbane to Santo. The airport is only a few minutes drive from the airport and Ben very kindly collected us from the airport and took us to the lodge. Ben and Kim were both very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay (even though we were supposed to be on the ship). The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Food prices are a little expensive but the quality is excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 12 and found it very quiet and private. The unit had a queen size bed in the main...

Stayed here last year in October and had a great time, we returned in August 2013 for 8 nights and were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed back by Ben and Kim and all their staff. Once again we met some great people here. Food was very good and we didn't mind paying that bit extra for the quality. Each time we've dined out in town the food was ok and cheaper, but town dining could not be compared to the choices and quality at Deco. Very relaxed atmosphere and great place to just chill out. 10 minute walk to town or 200 vatu in a cab. Hosts are very helpful.

Planned to stay 3 nights but actually 5 nights after plane cancelled at airport. Ben and Kim and their staff were really friendly and helpful. Fabulous view, lovely pool and good food with special veggie meal for my husband every night using local vegetables . Rooms with the best views seem to be 6-11. Brilliant intro to Santo and hope to go back. Bridget D

Room Tip: Try and get 5-11 as quieter and better view.
