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

The location, on the main road, suited us, making it very easy to catch one of the many mini buses to anywhere, right out the front. There's also shops nearby selling everything from milk to dresses and souvenirs. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with our coffees and watching the locals going to work in the morning. The kitchen was... More

Besides the large rooms with good beds, a good equiped kitchen for those who want to cook and a strong warm shower the big plus are the owners Beth and Tony themselves. This warm and friendly couple makes you feel at home. Tony brought us several times to the airport for our visits to some of the other islands, no... More

This was my fifth stay at the Coral Motel and I can offer no higher recommendation than that. Guests keep coming back only because they are well satisfied. Tony and Beth understand their guests and anything they can do to make you time at their motel a pleasure they will see to.

We spent an overnight stay here having come from Santo and then flying to Tanna the next morning. It is in the perfect location for this sort of stay and the rooms are simple but well presented and for those on a budget, great value. We used an airport transfer on arrival but would recommend just taking a taxi as... More
