In July 2019 I made two reservations at Tradewinds Villas for December 2019 & January 2020. The December stay was fine although a full upgrade/renovation is needed, but you get what you pay for including barking & fighting dogs! However, although I paid in full in July 2019 for the January 2020 booking, on arrival we were told that ‘someone’ had changed the booking & we spent the first night at an awful establishment quite nearby called ‘Whispering Coral’. The other 2 nights we were put into Seachange Lodge. I was shocked, then angry. How can they take your money upfront & put you somewhere else! I would have been much happier staying at Tradewinds. The location of Tradewinds, on a flat road where it was easy to walk into town or catch a local bus was much better for my husband. The view from the swimming pool area was very pleasant. Ian, who manages all the properties was a nice, very helpful guy, but I cannot condone the accommodation change when we had paid 6 months in advance. It has certainly put me off. I suggest the ‘someone’ who made the change (& I suspect it wasn’t Ian) should be admonished & ashamed for their lack of ethics!

The location was great however on the last day I realized that our room got broken into the night before by someone removing the wooden planks in the room and someone cutting the mesh. When I spoke to the owner he relayed it has happened before but not in our room. I felt that if we had this information before it would’ve been helpful so I wouldn’t leave valuables in our room when we weren’t there...!

You pretty much get what you pay for here- mid range accommodation, pretty well located just a bit out of town. Bungalows themselves are pretty tired, and need a bit of an upgrade, particularly around the plumbing. Owners quite responsive to problems though, and seemed to address them quickly. Wifi only in common area, not rooms, but aircon available in rooms. Good to have a small kitchenette as eating out in Vila is expensive - good for longer stays as mine was. Variable kitchen utensils but serviceable.

Couple who have visited Vanuatu many times. This place must e Port Vila's best kept accommodation secret. It is close to town, has great views and villas sit in well kept, park like surrounds. The rooms are large, clean and airy combining a lovely light and peaceful feeling. Beds really comfortable, bathroom and kitchen perfect and fan/ ac all great. Best of all is the host, Ian. Lovely, helpful man who, by his contacts, found my backpack with all it's contained vaulables!!
