Beautiful, relaxing beach break

Beach, peaceful, beautiful
Loved it, such a beautiful place! Only downside was threat of rats entering bungalows in the night but this didn't happen to us (we heard it happened to others). No issue if you don't keep food in your room! A minor price to pay for such a lovely spot.

A great experience

Isolated, rustic and beautiful
I loved my two nights here. It is very isolated, a gorgeous setting and you get a great look at the island as you make the 1.5 hour transfer from the airport. The bungalows are very rustic yet comfy. Take plenty of books and immerse yourself in the location. Also take a torch. Meals basic but good and the communal dining was a nice social part of the day, particularly for a solo traveller. If you want mod cons or usual resort extras then this place won't be for you. The extra costs of transfers, meals and tours are certainly high and soon add up to more than the cost of the accommodation itself. However the value to be gained from staying at Friendly Bungalows is measured by more than just counting your money.

Bush hotel on the beach

This hotel is ok if you plan to visit Yasur, Port Resolution and the east side if Tanna. The price at around $70 a night is ok for Vanuatu. The problem is the cost of the transfers and tours which quite frankly is a total rip off. Transfers one way from the airport is 8500 vatu each person. Cost to visit the volcano was 10,000 vatu each of which 2000 vatu is the entrance fee. To visit Port Resolution was 6400 vatu each. You can work out how much they are making on these transfers with say 6 passengers in a pick up truck. Your dinner will cost 3000 vatu each for something pretty basic. Can you get a better deal elsewhere on Tanna? I don't know.

La nature, côté calme et tranquille

Nature, écologie et gentillesse
Très bien dans le calme. Le seul souci c'est d'y arriver. La route d'accès est y très lointaine venant de l'aéroport et très abîmée en tant de pluie, c'est très chahutée. Le personnel est très avenant et très sympathique. Mais l'activité volcanique reste chère par personne et est sujette aux conditions climatiques très changeantes.

logement athypique

case traditionnelle
Notre séjour a Friendly Bungalows est un retour au source.Case avec un lit confortable.Une salle de bain avec douche mais rudimentaire.Par contre toilette normal.A conseiller aux gens en quête d'authenticité.Cout des repas assez couteux.

abgeschiedene Lage, einfache Unterkunft

relativ guter Strand, Nähe zum Mt. Yasur, sehr freundliche Bevölkerung
Trotz der Nähe zum Vulkan die teuerste Tour dorthin

typische melanesische Bungalows direkt am Strand

sehr gutes Essenn, nette und gepflegete Anlage direkt am Meer
die mitarbeiter sind durchweg freundlich und hilfbereit. allerdings sollte man immer die angebote auf ihren preis pruefen, sie sind teilweise ueberteuert fuer diese insel. da die anlage echt abseits liegt, wird das gerne etwas ausgenutzt und man ist manchmal gezwungen die preise zu aktzeptieren. macht man selbst einige arrangments, wird das gerne vom hotel rueckgaengig gemacht und man muss wieder den service des hotels in anspruch nehmen - keine andere chance. die bungalows sind geraeumig und nett eingerichtet, warmes wasser zum duschen war nicht verfuegbar, aber das macht die sache nur noch abteuerlicher. das essen war sehr gut und empfehlendwert. es gibt keine steckdosen im zimmer.
