I booked a trip for my daughter who was taking a week vacation in Vanuatu prior to leaving from a 7 month stay in Sydney, AU and reserved a 1 BR Villa at the Benjor Beach Club for her. I'll let my daughter follow-up on her experiences, however I would like to commend the Manager, Sally, for her help and assistance.

As my daughter was traveling and staying as a single we did have some questions as to safety and the Benjor Beach Club answered that much to our satisfaction and relief and also booked a villa near to the main buildings. Assistance with info and catching public transportation was given to our daughter so she could take part in a number of activities.

We also looked for a facility to provide a small gift for our daughter and when unable to locate a business to do up a gift basket, asked the manager if she could help us. Sally & the Benjor Beach Club put together a wonderful gift 'basket' (locally made bag with locally sourced items and a bottle of New Zealand wine) for under the budgeted price and had that placed in our daughter's villa - from us. We were thrilled with this level of service and accommodation and have to give much thanks and appreciation to the Manager (Sally) for her quick replies via email, assistance, help and consideration.

We managed to book the villa for an excellent price and were very happy with the package deal (flight via Virgin Air from Sydney) and the accommodation provided.

So, many kudos to the Benjor Beach Club. We're looking forward to visiting one day and our daughter plans to return as well.

Four of us recently stayed here and really loved it. The rooms were huge and really charming - not flash but comfortable with everything we needed. The grounds are really beautiful and all of us had a great view even staying in different rooms around the resort. The staff are great - nothing was too much trouble and we really enjoyed the happy hour - nver drunk so many cocktails in my life. Restaurant was way better than we expected for a 3 star resort - and much better than some flashier ones in town. This is the place to be if you want to chill out in pretty surroundings with good service and on a budget. We would come back with another group for sure.

Room Tip: One of our friends had the two bedroom selfcontained rooms - they were really nice and had a kitchen...

We usually stay at Hideaway but decided on a change because of the recent cyclone damage. We had a great stay-friendly, helpful staff with close proximity to the waterfalls and the Summit. Kayaks, snorkle gear and a pool on hand with lovely grounds. The food here has to be some of the best in Vanuatu-especially the dinner, plus the wine selection is better than most with prices to match. Great set up for families or people on more of a budget but who love quality.

Room Tip: One or two bedroom bungalows as well as "Chiefs" bungalow for groups. Fridges, etc mean th...

We had a great time at Benjor.. It is a great place to chill out.. Sally and Bruce are doing a great job as new managers.. the coast is stunning - but the area is nice and rural for a place so close to the hustle and bustle of Port Vila..

Food was fine - very friendly staff .. the rooms are highly adequate... thanks..

I must have been one of the people to stay just after Bruce and Sally the new managers started. Don't know about the people before but these ones are very friendly and tried to acccommodate all my requests. The people of Vanuatu are simply stunning - very friendly with the best smiles. My room was very large with a great deck looking at Mele Bay. I did have to ask for extra towels half way through my stay but these were given to me with a smile so no problem really. The grounds are really lovely - well planted and all fronting the ocean. I did alot of action related activities including snorkeling from Benjor and the kayak tour run from Benjor's beach - both great. I can also reccomend a trip to the Beach bar located a short bus ride from for the Fire Dancing night. This is good clean budget/middle of the road accommodation and being all ocean front with a nice restaurant and pool - couldn't really go wrong.

Room Tip: All seemed pretty good as all faced Mele Bay so got views.

We stayed four nights at Benjor Resort and the highlight was probably the snorkelling - only had to go a short way of the beach and were in amazing coral and hundreds of bright colourful fish. Really great. The room was large and had a great deck looking at the ocean. We found the staff delightful and the restaurant very pictuesque with lovely fresh food bistro style. All in all a really pleasent stay and we would most likely come back if travelling back to Port Vila.

I recently spent a week at Benjor Beach Club and thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

The gardens are beautifully kept and add to the stunning ocean views and tropical setting.

I ate at the resorts restaurant every day I was there, the food was delicious, the service was consistently excellent, the staff were always friendly and made us feel welcome and comfortable. It was so relaxing being able to lounge around on the outdoor lounge suites with a couple of drinks before dinner looking out across the ocean. The music and lighting contributed to the happy and chilled out atmosphere.

The staff were attentive, considerate and helpful, giving us useful information about the area. We booked an "around the island" tour through Benjor which we found to be cheaper than the equivalent tour booked through other avenues. We found management to be very approachable and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you Benjor Beach Club for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
