Erakor Island Resort also has a dorm. And the restaurant there, Aqua is excellent.

So LTB, you have visited Erakor since my last review there? Excellent.

My advice to this poster, and I'm serious, if you cannot afford to get yourself good accomodation, you will certainly NOT like the cost of day to day expenses in Vanuatu. I know this may sound harsh but perhaps it would be better to save a little longer and enjoy the experience more.

Many parts of s.E.Asia are a quarter the cost of living in Port Vila, please don't be put off though, it's worth every dollar.

Yes I went over on a spare of the moment trip early January, Reboi

Stayed at Pacific Lagoon Apartments across from Erakor Is. Went for dinner at Aqua, one night, and made 3 other trips over for lunch and had a good look around.

We walked along the beach to the new jetty, boat over and the resort certainly has a new look, so much better. And loved Aqua Restaurant, wonderful food, service and beautiful views over the lagoon. Didn't stay there though, perhaps another time in the future.
