“spacious and comfy”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

the cottage was very spacious, with air con. The owners run a DVD channel and every DVD has 15 movies on it, a great night or done time activity. The owners went out of their way to provide welcomed stay, even dropping us the the airport and the ferry for my cousins wedding. They are great people and makes the whole experience enjoyable. Its about a 15min walk into the town center or you can catch a bus, great location.

The Coral Motel and Apartments, Port Vila - highly recommended self contained budget accommodation, friendly owners who go out of their way to make your stay great (including early morning transfer back to the airport!), very clean and comfortable rooms and an easy walk into town. Thank you, Beth and Tony.

Its my last night here and I think back on all the times ive been here..nothing much has changed...because frankly it doesn't have to! Beth and Tony were once again over the top helpful as I arrived with a health issue which they promptly helped resolve..Thanks guys!
If you want in expensive, clean comfortable accommodation with free wifi and close to town and buses going past ( if you don't have transport)..then stay here. simple sound advice!!

Cheers guys and thanks again.

We had a pleasant few days here. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the location quite central without being in the middle of port villa itself. The best part was the very helpful owners who made us feel very welcome, answered our many questions and really went out of their way to provide for our needs. The down side was that there were no water views and the road was busy and noisy during the day but the tariff is very reasonable and I would recommend to others for a short stay in Port Villa.

I stayed at the Coral for a week recently. It is a good value, budget motel with very comfortable beds and great pillows. I have back problems so a good bed means the world to me. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The homemaids, Ruth, Doris and Rachael are fantastic. They work hard to upkeep the high standard of cleanliness of the rooms and they are very friendly. The same goes for the gardener Batic. Motel is centrally located within walking distance to town and is a good base if you have a car. There are good BBQ facilities at the motel and well equipped kitchens. The motel also employ a night security guard who patrols the grounds of the motel all night (not that I experienced any problems) but I believe his presence helps in that regard. The only drawback I found was the road noise as the motel is situated on the main highway on the island. Having said that though I did get used to the noise after the first few nights. Friday and Saturday nights seem to be the worst when the locals go out on the town.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor would be quiter and ask for one at the opposite end to where the receiption...

Our family stayed at Coral Motel for 3 nights during our stay in Vanuatu. We used it as a stopover between flights to Tanna Is and Santo. Beth and Tony are great hosts, full of usefull information and local knowledge. The rooms were spacious and very clean Well set up for longer stays with good kitchen facilities and steaming hot water. The location is very convienient, being close to both the airport and downtown Vila. It was just a few minutes and a cheap bus ride into the town with banks, resturants and shops etc. The complimentary airport dropoff was much appreciated. They also happily stored my husbands surfboard whilst we went to Santo.
We would definately reccommend this hotel for families / business travelers but not for those wanting a beachside resort. Great facilites, great people at a great price. Thanks Beth and Tony for your hospitality.
