I really enjoyed my stay at the Coral motel in Port Vila. Tony and Beth were so helpful and caring. The staff did an amazing job and looked after me very well. It's in a great location, close to town. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Very comfortable and clean.

Stayed at Coral Motel three nights. Beth provided helpful information which was valuable on our first stay in Vanuatu. The room was extremely clean with everything in good repair. Cooking facilities were handy for breakfast. Beth and Tony stored some luggage for us while we did a side trip to an island. Nothing was too much trouble. We would stay... More

I chose this motel for a night after coming back from Tanna for the following day flight back to Sydney, main reason was their location just between the airport and main town. Our last light in Vanuatu became an unforgettable memory by motel owner Beth's warm welcome and heartfelt advice. They happily kept our luggage before going Tanna (we were... More

Coral Motel is surprisingly good, especially for the price. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff are very obliging. Only downside is the location of the hotel (behind a small shopping centre and just outside walking distance from town) but public transport is really cheap in Vanuatu so if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep and...

The owners of Coral motel are lovely. This place is located a long walk from downtown. The rooms are small apartments with two large beds, a table, and a fully stocked kitchen for average needs. Everything was very clean and worked well. The bathrooms were clean and had hot water. Wifi worked well in most rooms. Downtown can be expensive... More

I chose this motel for a recent overnight in Vila because it is closest to the airport (not all that close, but closer than anyone else). It is on a busy street and the noise does not abate until fairly late, but that is just Port Vila. The room was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Everything I tried... More

There you go..all said in the title!...But really Tony and Beth are the ultimate hosts and I enjoy having stayed there now I think 4-5 times so that in itself tells you something, Basic equipped kitchen, four burner stove and oven worked well and I enjoyed buying really good beef and fresh veges to cook up after work

I stayed at the Coral motel for a month while on placement at the hospital. It was a comfortable place to be, right on the main road - so lots of buses to hail, which was very convenient. It is also walking distance from the town centre if you like a little walk - about 20min. We had a single... More
