I was a very long term resident at the Coral Motel and nothing was too much trouble, Tony, Beth and the staff are fantastic and very willing to help make the stay welcoming The rooms are clean, in good repair, and very comfortable, having your own cooking facilities is a huge plus. The air con was awesome and worked very... 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

Booked for 3 nights stayed 3 months and still haven't left, great little budget option would recommend to anyone looking for clean and convenient accommodation. Rooms have balconies and water views without the price. Owners are helpful offer airport services and more little extras to assist your stay. Rooms are clean and well appointed staff are friendly, motel is on... 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

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
