We have just spent 10 days at Pandanus Bay Waterfront Apartments. Two couples in our unit. We had our own bathrooms and the units were spacious, clean, and had everything that we could have needed in a fully contained apartment. The BBQ was kept spotless, and so was the lawns and pool area.
The full kitchen in the unit was really handy and it was nice to be able to cook our own meals and have a BBQ during our stay.
James and Claudine, the owners, are only too happy to help with any inquires that you have. They are the perfect hosts.
The snorkeling at high tide is pretty good towards the centre of the bay. We spent many afternoons just sitting on the verandah and looking out at the beautiful view.
We had no problems getting a bus out the front to Port Vila and they charged us between 150 and 200 Vatu. (about $2 each Aust.)
We also walked the 15 minutes to Paradise Cove resort for dinner and lunch and a snorkle, on some days. Paradise Cove resort also provided us transport back at night after dinner.
Honeymoon Beach, a marine snorkling beach, is about a 15 minute walk past Pandanus Bay, and is also a beautiful beach to snorkle at. Cost is 200 vatu to swim here. ($2 Aust. ) Its well worth it.
I would definitely book this accommodation the next time we visit Vanuatu.
