Trip Advisor rarely steers me wrong, but this time I feel it did.
When I am on holiday I want somewhere quiet and relaxing. The noise from the unbelievably busy road really spoiled the apartments for me. But I feel a very good rating is in order simply for the quality of the place and the outstanding view. I realise not everyone will be as bothered by the noise as me.
We only stayed 3 nights after 5 nights on Tanna. In hindsight we should have stayed at a resort somewhere on the island as the township didn't offer that much. Buses were plentiful and cheap so getting in and out of Vila would have been easy.
We were also a little annoyed the apartments were a bit pushy with sales of tours. They also ordered us a taxi to the airport and said it was 1800 vatu. My understanding is the rate is set at 1500. I think you could do better, but this would suit if you were just in Vila for a night or two. Just don't forget those earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
