We come to Port Vila several times a year because we have fallen in love with it. I can no longer justify staying in a foreign owned resort when I could be spending that money in the community. One of our main concerns is mosquitos and self catering. Blue pango is a quirky little motel 5 minutes out of town.... More

Great budget hostel/guesthouse with very welcoming family in local village. Location is right on the coral shore and maybe 5-10min via bus into town. Little kitchenettes in every room so you can cook your own food. Highly recommended!

Dorm has 5 bunk beds with shower room, toilet, and gas stove. Free wifi is good as long as everyone follows the rules. There's one small Chinese owned shop just 100 mtr away and kava bar nearby. 15-20 mins walk can reach to a nice sandy beach. Generally, it's quiet place but can hear sea sound all the time!

The advantages is that there is a swimming pool, sea view (but there is no beach, only rocks), the showers is really good and there is a stove, sink and fridge inside the room. Disadvantages are: far from the centre (but you can take a minivan on the... More

After travelling round Vanuatu for three weeks we really needed a place that was peaceful and budget. Blue pango suited our needs perfectly. We were so happy to find that for 3000 vatu for two people we got a nice clean room with a kitchen and hot shower. The place is on the seafront only 5 mins from port Vila... More

Hi Miss Orange35, Thank you for your positive review, despite all the damage the motel has gotten from the cyclone. The repairs are keep getting delayed, but we're planning to repair the building bit by bit. The swimming pool should be available this December. I sincerely thank you for staying in Bluepango Motel.
