Our villa was only metres from the coral beach.

Really beautiful and relaxing hotel, out of the hustle of the touristy port. Staff were friendly and helpful with any questions we had and sad to say goodbye to! Having no kitchen in the villa was more expensive with having to eat in the restaurant, as well as travelling to places on the buses from the hotel did add up, but for the peace and quiet of the location, it was fair play. Only been home a day and already missing Benjor!

4/5 Good

Quiet and close to the baech

Private beach was perfect for kayaking and snorkeling. Not crowded and very quiet. Great place to chill out.

Pros: No crowds. Very private.

Cons: general maintenance of the resort was poor to fair. Getting back to the resort of a night time was not easy.

Location: We enjoyed kayaking out to the coral island just offshore from the resort and swimming and snorkeling there. Resort close to Mele cascades.

Dirty and remote

I was very disappointed when I arrived at Benjor. My room was very dirty. The couch was stained so badly that I didn't feel comfortable sitting on it. The outside furniture was in just as bad shape and it seems as if things have gone into disrepair. The pool was cloudy and the beach was basically just dead coral. Not a great place to swim. And there was no hot water in the shower. I only stayed one night then moved to another resort.

So much potential!

We have stayed here a few times previously and have loved the place, with friendly staff and a great snorkeling reef immediately in front of the resort. It is about 20 min away from Port Vila so it is a little isolated, but we prefer that. time however, the small things let the place down. The owner was away and it may have contributed to this. When we arrived we were not taken through the inclusions of our stay; for example, housekeeping only on every second day - so we ran out of towells. The satellite tv was not connected and so I left a message on Facebook (privately) for it to be fixed as reception was a little walk and it was hosing down. This was eventually sorted after a few follow ups with reception over the next two days but no one told us it was sorted so we didn't realise! On the last day, another group were talking about their breakfast - turned out a complementary one consisting of a fruit platter was included but we never knew! On the plus side the coffee was amazing and the staff helpful. The 2bdrm vila was well appointed. The final nail for us was the restaurant. Every time we ate there they were out of something... like eggs at breakfast. I needed 3 attempts at dinner one night as my first two selections were "all gone". We discovered a fantastic restaurant 5 min walk away up the road however so we survived. Honestly this little place could be amazing. All the ingredients are there. Just a little more attention to detail would help.

The reservation should have been cancelled

The morning of our flights to Vanuatu we received the following email from Benjor "Benjor to me, Miranda, Kelly Good morning ******** family We have just received a booking for you and that you arriving today. Can you please confirm you are arriving Regards Kelly" Following my queries I then received the following email "Just to advise benjor has been closed the past few weeks for Matience and wasn't scheduled to reopen for another week. We only received confirmation last night you were coming. The restaurant is still closed and as this is not your problem I am organising provision for you to cater for your family for the next day or two. I have also organised a a catering pack for your family is there any dietary requirements?" I had booked my vacation 6 months in advance. In addition to this the pool was finally fixed at 4pm the day prior to our departure. We were also burgled - during which my wife and daughter woke up with the intruder still in our house. Despite this you can see that Kelly did try and accommodate us, however, if you can't offer a proper experience to your customers, its probably best you don't offer one at all.

Cons: Despite the calcified water making the taps and faucets looking terrible, it's still easy to dissolve that calcium with the correct products. Vinegar.

Location: Rent a 4wd to stay here. Prices at restaurant are average. Well landscaped, even if it's not well looked after.
