We stayed at Benjor for 5 nights in February 2014. Have to admit that we chose it primarily because of the cost as we were saving our money for diving! We were expecting the accommodation to be pretty basic but that didn't bother us and we were happy to stay a little bit out of town.
The staff at Benjor were extremely helpful and organised buses to get us into town. We also did a walking tour of Mele village with one of them (Peter) and got to taste the local kava. When we ate there, the food was mostly excellent. It's not cheap but then nothing is really cheap in Vanuatu. We snorkelled off the beach a few times (the high tides are helpfully displayed out front), availed of the free wifi in reception and made sure we were at the bar in time for the daily happy hour! I would definitely return to Benjor again.
Things to improve:
- They had no reef shoes for hire/sale when we arrived so we couldn't snorkel the first day and had to wait until we'd bought some in town. I think the new managers will rectify this.
- The fans in our room were badly placed. One over the couch and one over the single bed but none over the double bed and we struggled to sleep with the heat.
