We have been staying here for over 10 years from the UK. Lovely clean rooms that are serviced daily. Friendly staff who always have a smile for you and nice larger self contained appartments. Beth and Tony the proprieters are always approachable and willing to help if there is a problem. Always enjoy our annual stay there.

I recently spent a month in Port Vila and stayed in Coral Motel and highly recommend it. The rooms are clean and spacious with fans and air con available in the bungalow. It was fully furnished with all the mod-cons and cleaned daily by the friendly locals. The owners Beth and Tony were amazing hosts and would always do whatever... More

Having read previous reviews before arriving at the Coral Motel, I had some preconceived impressions. However, I was pleasantly surprised. This motel humbly describes itself as 'budget accommodation'. I've stayed in real budget places before and I can say that the Coral Motel exceeds budget. Budget in terms of price, but what it offers is more. I stayed in a... More

Booked the two bedroom cottage months in advance. On arrival were told that a couple and their disabled son had arrived two days before and needed a room where they could all be together...so they were given the cottage. We were given two motel rooms next to each other...teenage daughter in one room, my husband and myself in the other... More

We had one night stopover here before travelling to Santos for diving. This should not be ranked under Hotels etc and if was just listed as a B&B would be much better and less disappointing. Apart from that clean and tidy with the higher up apartments getting a view across the very busy and noisy main highway. Probably ok if... More

Rest assured travellers! Sometimes it is the owners who make the property, and in this case, Beth & Tony were invaluable for our first trip to Vanuatu & the South Pacific. We stayed at the Coral Motel for one night as a layover, and we are very lucky that we did. Beth & Tony really do go the extra mile... More

We stayed in November 2013 for 11 nights for a holiday on Efate. Overall, we liked our studio and especially the kitchen, but in retrospect should have chosen somewhere outside Port Vila. Things we liked: - The studio itself was great for us in terms of its size and we were particularly glad to have place with a kitchen. Some... More
