“SUN FUN SUN”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Brilliant stay here - large ocean facing rooms, plenty of cool breeze, great local tours, good food and really close snorkelling. Really had a relaxing wind down island time stay. Special thanks to Ben (the ben of Benjor) who was helping out for a week and could not do enough for us - kept us company when waiting for buses and told very funny stories about growing up in the Resort. Don't worry Ben we won't tell your Mum. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: From what we could see all the Villas had good views but the two bedroom Villas were selfcontainted...

We stayed for a few nights in early August. Lovely big clean rooms, service with a smile from the staff, who were extremely helpful in terms of pointing us in the right direction for various activities etc. Great snorkelling straight off the beach, and well worth hiring kayaks to go out to the small island (sandbar) as there is good snorkelling there also. Meals were great also .... keen to return!

Had a great time here recently - spent four nights just chilling out and relaxing. Staff great - huge smiles and really good with their tour suggestions. The snorkelling was great - only had to go out about 20 meters and into amazing coral and fish. Room was large, clean and had a great view. This not a five star but then it doesn't claim to be and it definitely exceeded our expectation on service, food and rooms in comparison to what we spent. Would like to come back! Keepnupnthe good work. Cheers!

Room Tip: All seemed pretty good as faced the ocean but the big houses would be the best for families

We stayed here for 6 days since it was the suggested hotel for a wedding party we were with - although we had a one day break in the middle to go to Tanna for a night, and also attended the friend's wedding at a different hotel. The rooms here are pretty great - clean, spacious, with bathtubs and nice ocean-view patios. My only issue with the room itself was the toilet - although they have a sign posted in the bathroom to explain that the corrosion of the toilet bowl interior was due to calcium deposits in the water, it was still a fairly gruesome sight....

Our friends/family there for the wedding made up about 15 guests at the Benjor, so even though it was secluded (about half hour drive to town), we still had a fairly raucous time. Family of the groom had rented the Chief's Villa so we were over there a couple of times for BBQs and drinks. The Chief's Villa is basically just a big house and is a great option for families or even groups of friends who enjoy hanging out with each other - there is a kitchen (and again, a BBQ), so you can make your own food.

There isn't a sandy beach at this resort, although a quick 15min walk takes you to a public beach strip that locals like to hang out at. There is a village close by (about 10min drive) as well as a local "bar" you can visit and try some kava, as long as you befriend the right people. Going anywhere by car though was a bit difficult since we came right after some heavy rain season and the roads were filled with massive pot-holes.

The food at Benjor was ok but kind of pricey. All-in-all a good place if you're looking for some peace and quiet, or if you're coming in with a group of friends/family.

For me, I'd probably try another place next time just to see what else Vanuatu has to offer.

A great place to getaway with friends, there were 11 over 50s. A lovely quiet (until we arrived) resort with beautiful views of the ocean from most of the rooms. Our accommodation was clean and spacious.The staff were very welcoming on arrival and very accommodating throughout our stay.I loved the fresh coconut juice.The food was fresh not super cheap but exceptable.This is a place to come to if you want to unwind and relax. Nothing moves very fast here but that is the charm of the place.Only down side was the hot showers sometimes didn't work in the large house other than that its a beautiful place to stay.

The resort is located 20 min drive from Port Vila so there is a feeling of remoteness. The resort is run by very professional and reliable team, The bungalows are comfortable and nice. There is a nice coral reef just at the front.

Room Tip: The waterfront vilas are nice.
