Je ne reviendrai pas !
Personne ne m'attendait à l'aéroport, mon bungalow n'était pas prêt en arrivant, la propriétaire n'avait pas prévenu les managers... Bungalows complètement isolés, certes le calme est appréciable, la plage est belle mais une fois sur place vous êtes coincés et pieds et poings liés pour les déplacements qui sont facturés au prix fort : 8000 VT (60 euros) pour simplement aller au volcan, 6000 VT pour faire un détour et aller voir le banyan géant en retournant à l'aéroport, petit-déjeuner très bien le 1er matin, très décevant les deux suivants, repas très chers sans aucun choix (et là encore, vous êtes coincé !). Je suis arrivée un vendredi mais je n'ai pas assister à John Frum au motif que "ce n'était pas intéressant" / je voulais aller voir le lever de soleil, là encore impossible "on ne fait que le coucher". Bref, vous payez (400 euros les 3 nuits) et c'est tout, et ça n'enrichit absolument pas les gens de l'île... Les autres bungalows ne manquent pas, il y a de la concurrence mais apparemment la propriétaire ne l'a pas compris... même si ses bungalows sont très peu fréquentés.
