“GREAT EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

i have never travelled out of Australia before and this was my first trip. Picked this Resort as it was well within my budget and located on the ocean not in town. Loved the fact that the flight from Australia was only about 2-3 hours which was also why I picked Vanuatu. So close! Anyway I loved Benjor - the grounds were really pretty and tropical, the snorkelling was right there at the resort the huge room, the amazingly friendly staff and the yummy food. Honestly i could not complain except maybe about the mini putt course - sooooo hard!! But fun. I will be back next year for sure.

Certainly better than average but not very good in my opinion. Firstly there is nothing terrible about this resort and I wouldn't want to put anyone off visiting. However, I did leave feeling somewhat frustrated by a little lack of attention to detail. For a place that advertises it's amazing snorkelling there was no where to dry/hang our wet clothes. Curtains that were narrower than the windows (good job I'm a morning person!). Checking out of the hotel was a bit more involved than possibly necessary (having to wait for the appropriate person who then had to find the right paperwork etc). The food was excellent, especially the coconut bun, but I did find myself eating out more than in partly due to the price disparity.
My favourite aspect of the stay was the bus driver that the hotel recommended - Abet. Buses were the cheapest way to Port Villa and took you through the local villages etc which was a chance to experience the real Port Villa/Mele.

I would return again but only if the small details that really complete a holiday stay are addressed.

Thanks for your review. It is always very helpful to find out from our guests what has made them happy and sometimes (hopefully not often) what has not!! It is a great idea to have an extra line to hang your towels and damp clothes on - we have usually found guests use the Villa handrails on their sundecks for this purpose but we will definitely add some additional lines to make life even easier for future guests. And of course we have taken your other comments on board as well. We would hope that you have another chance to come back to Benjor and Vanuatu so we can enhance your experience. Should you wish to do this please contact the Resort direct and ask them to forward your request to myself so I can deal with it personally.
All the very best. Miranda

We stayed here for two nights after going to Tanna - loved it. Right on the ocean with amazing snorkelling and huge rooms with views! Couldn't believe what we paid and what we got - this was like staying at a 4 star resort on backpacker rates. Staff were very helpful and we particularly loved the kayaking tour we did right off the beach. Restaurant was very good and we would definitely come back.

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
