This was our second visit to Santo. We choose to stay at the Barrier Beach House and could not be happier with the time we spent there. Our hosts Julie and Calvin were fantastic. They were able to help us with any information we needed and assist in arranging activities and day trips. The fare we stayed in was great...

We had stayed in Santo for 2 weeks before coming to Barrier and I can safely say that in terms of accommodation, I dont think there is anywhere in Vanuatu that could be better than Barrier!

We spent a wonderful 5 nights at Barrier Beach House and discovered for ourselves why it gets these high ratings. The rooms are really nice and well appointed, with great beds, good coffee, lovely showers. The setting is magical with the beautiful calm waters and lovely beach. They have snorkeling equipment, kayaks and bicycles and you really don't have to...

And we should know - my wife and I are veterans of five holidays at BBH! For us it is truly our home away from home. Favourite thing to do at BBH? Simply stare at the beach and water and ask "Does it get any better than this?" Or float in the water and do the same. You get the...

We had two beachfront bures and fell asleep to the sound of lapping water it was divine. Calvin and Julie were fabulous hosts nothing was too much trouble and they had only just taken over but you would have never known as they were so capable. Could not recommend more highly for a holiday .

Easy to see why this hotel is ranked #1 on trip advisor! Rooms: we stayed in Fare 6 which is a garden room. This room was very modern and spacious. The shower and bathroom was the best we have had in any room so far on our trip. The king size mattress is comfortable and there is a TV in...

“We stayed in Fare 3, Fare 1 & 2 look to be ideal, we were happy with our room and it's position. You are not there to stay in your room as there is so much snorkelling to do!!!!!”

“We stayed in two garden fares which were secluded by lush gardens. Both fares had plunge pools and outdoor covered decks with lounges to relax and chill out. Our fares were connected via an elevated timber walkway which also meandered to the main dining / lounge area. I personally loved these rooms, however you could also choose one of the two beach fares which are located adjacent to the dining room. All fares could be considered high end accommodation, you will not find better in Vanuatu. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!”

“If you like real privacy, opt for the garden villa with its plunge pool and extra space. But the villas with a seaview at the front are also great. ”
