While a little dated, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The only issue was lots of wind while we were there blew sand into our Bungalow! But, you don't spend much time there, anyway, as the snorkelling and diving are AMAZING! All the staff are brilliant, and the dive crew are patient and careful, and a lot of fun. The food is also great. About what you would expect to pay back in Australia, but really high quality ingredients, cooked well. (Though breakfast is included, it is pretty basic.) If we return to Vanuatu, we would definitely stay here again!

Loved being able to stay on an island, unique location. I stayed in the dorms and it was clean basic accommodation. The shared bathroom could have done with a clean and a Reno but it was suitable for the price and location.

Thanks Kerrie! Yes, not many places on the planet where you can step out your door and go diving. Kinda like a live-aboard without the seasickness. We look forward to seeing you again.

Awesome location

Not everyone’s ideal holiday but we had a great time. Yes, the rooms are basic but if you’re there to relax by the pool or what felt like a private beach, or go diving on the doorstep then it’s perfect. The staff and management were great and loved our 2 year old daughter. It can get busy during the day with day trippers to the island but by evening it was quiet and peaceful. We’d definitely visit again.

Great snorkeling

Pros: As above
Location: As above
I usually stay at Hideaway because it's great value at a great location. Friendly helpful staff, they do a mean curry in the restaurant, close to town. You can do a dive course, snorkel, or lay on the beach.
