It took me a while to work out where to stay for our two nights in Port Olry. We stayed here because it seemed to have the most luxuries such as a fridge, hot water, mosquito screens and nets. Even if the electricity isn't always on it keeps drinks cold when it is. I am glad we chose to stay here rather than do a day trip even with all the rain we had. We walked over to an island at low tide and went snorkeling, we watched some men take there traditional boats out to do I don't know what ( but they all seemed to go out at at specific time), a young girl made an amazing sand creation and made a path to our room with sand and we relaxed. Another reason I choose Little Paradise is because I had read about a local who made local dinners. It had been raining and it was nice having our dinners delivered to our room. If you stay here ask about the meals cooked in the village, they are great value and it is a way of trying local food.

We stayed for 3 nights and despite rain had a beautiful experience. Local children and families were beautiful. Despite other reviews on noise we found it quiet and super relaxing. Try a local village meal For 1000 and make sure you go across to the island on low tide. We also took a 2 hour walk up through the further villages. If you like to get away and don’t want luxury. This is simplicity. You still have hot water mosquito nets and food. Power is only a few hours a day so take torches insect repellent and a good book. Wind down and enjoy the pace of Vanuatu!

Port Orly, 1 hour north or around 7k vut or 80AU$ from Luganville, is a really good looking beach with a very poor, noisy and dirty town and accommodation in par with the town, not the beach. Town dwellers not related with tourism are very friendly and speak poor English, some don't speak English at all. Most speak french. Those related to tourism speak poor English and will try to get your money. In a town where people live with 10$ a day for the full family they charge 50 to 100 $ for a dirty, uncomfortable, no electricity no hot water bungalow beside the town in front of the beach some 20 meters from the water. The restaurant is quite expensive at 15/20$ a meal, the food is passable. I expected to find a cheap place and it is but only for locals not white people. the bus to travel back to luganville is 100vt for locals but 1000vt for whites. The town is noisy with locals playing the boom-boom box until late and all day (do they work?). There is domestic violence (plenty of domestic fights you can comfortably hear from your bed) and roosters looking for a mate at sunrise, sunset, middle of the day or 3AM of the morning!!. The bungalow has not electricity until 5pm and is cut off at midnight. There was just 1 plug on the wall. The light bulb were just to dim the place. The bathroom was very dark, even during the day, and when I used my torch I regretted it, it was disgustingly dirty and stained. No hot water. The mattress is not good, with spring getting into your skin and a mosquito net that gets entangles on everything except mosquitoes. The breakfast included in the stay is not worth talking about, it main feature a bread roll and peanut butter. I got food poisoned from the second day breakfast. The beach is very nice, warm water with beautiful colors and a small reef just meters out, not a very good snorkeling place but it can do. In short, I would not recomend you to stay overnight, go for the day and go away.

I have been visiting Port Olry for the past 9 years.This was my 15th time.Iwill not dwell on others comments.On my first visit, there was one Bungalow and no place to eat.Now you gave a choice of 25 Bungalows and three Restaurants.Yes , I agree the Restraurants are expensive.$35 USD for a whole lobster.A café is being built at the village end that will provide local fare.This will also cater to the village community.Yes, the chickens are noisy, and the dogs bark.It is quieter At the bungalows away from the village.Iprefer to stay near the village , as one gets a feeling of the culture.For a good nights sleep I would suggest a Kava night cap.The view and the beach is insane.You can snorkel.at a protected reef right in front of the fishermen.It is a fishing village.I do suggest you try Sylvana s lunch or dinner @ 1000 vatu. home delivered.Or you can ask Maurice to take you fishing on his boat.For those into horse riding , have Tarcisus contact John- Mark.F.Y.I I stay at the Caron bungalow,which 2 double beds,clean linen,rinnai hot water,fridge.4 burner stove and a fully equipped kitchen , with a view to die for.All this for 50,000 vatu a night.Iwill be back again. Hope this helps.

We missed out on staying at one of the new bungalows due to the fact that Tarcisius forgot to make our booking. The old bungalows aren't a pinch on the new ones, they're rustic and basic, and are very tired and worn out and due for a face-lift, but it was sufficient and we got by for our 4 day stay. Bring your own towels and a top sheet if preferred to the linen provided, not the cleanest accommodation or the most comfy bed and the mozzie net didn't really keep the mozzies out at night time. And an ongoing gamet of noises coming from the local village with loud music starting at dusk, roosters crowing all day long, a multitude of chickens running amuck, cows mooing, pigs snorting, and packs of wild dogs barking and scraping most of the night. And Church bells ringing from the Village at 6am & again 10 mins later every morning, so we didn't exactly get a chance to sleep in or get a good night's sleep while staying here. Our host Tarcisius was really lovely, very friendly and obliging, he was not always an easy man to pin down but we found his dwelling in the adjacent Village and he was always most helpful with any of our enquiries. His restaurant had a descent menu and was priced comparitive with the other 2 Cafe's nearby, although we would not recommend going to the Serenity Cafe. We went there for dinner one night and the food was awful and expensive, the chicken curry and beef dish were so overcooked that we couldn't eat them and we never went back again. Tarcisius mentioned that traditional meals were available cooked by the villagers (1,000Vt each) and delivered to our bungalow, so we thought we'd support the community and try them out. We had the local poulet fish a couple of times and it was super fresh and cooked to perfection, and my husband tried a steak meal and he was quite impressed with the quality of the meat and how tender it was, and it was cheaper than the restaurants! Complimentary breakfast consisted of fresh baked bread and a variety of fresh fruit left on a table on the front deck, mostly pineapple, papaya and bananas, and we had a treat of passionfruit from the vine in our outdoor bathroom and some lychees from one of the Nevans. Power in the form of lighting and 2 power points was only available between 6-12 and 5-9pm, so we boiled the kettle provided for a cuppa at breakfast and charged up our devices during these hours. We started out buying bottled water and then tried drinking the local water boiled and we did not experience any adverse affects at all. There is a small Store in the Village but it doesn't stock much at all ie..bottled water, Tuska beer, crisps, sweet biscuits, lots of canned tuna or mackeral, and that's about it! Port Olry without a doubt was one of the most stunning beaches we stayed at or saw, we went to Lonnoc Beach after staying here, and Olry was still our fav. Bungalows are located a stone's throw from the beautiful beach and Nevans were a friendly and happy lot. Lots of coral and colorful reef fish, and a nice stroll over to the nearest island when the tide was out. This place is quite isolated and off the grid, although having said that, we bought a Digicell SIM in Louganville to use while in Vanuatu and we got the best reception here! It was reasonably peaceful during the day with the odd day trippers dropping by for lunch or a swim in the ocean, so we felt like we had the beach to ourselves most of the time. :) This is not a 5 star establishment, it only covers the bare necessities and the price is accordingly, so it may not suit many.
