Myself and my partner stayed in Moorings for 5 nights and we had such an amazing experience! excellent service, our room was simple but what we needed, the breathtaking view on the Harbour is what we loved the most, very nice lay out with a beautiful pool for all to share. The hotel is very peaceful and I can't wait... More

We stayed at the Moorings Hotel in Port Vila for one week. What a great place to stay in! It had all the amenities of a 3-star hotel but top end: very clean and tidy air-conditioned room; daily service of changing sheets and towels, washing the room and doing the bed; immaculate Island-style grounds; a full buffet continental breakfast included;...

The moorings is in a good spot, provided you pick the right room. We were in a family room and so there was no view and not really anywhere to sit, the 'porch' was a single chair & table outside the room directly facing the massage hut and pool, not much to look at really. However there were some gorgeous... More

My wife and I stayed at the Moorings early Oct. 2014 and although renovations were ongoing, we still found it a top spot to stay. We had a Harbour view room which overlooked Port Vila harbour. The restaurant needs to be revamped but the food was good. All the staff were fantastic, be they office, bar or cleaning. I would... More

The Moorings are perfectly placed for you to either catch a bus at the entrance, or walk 10 minutes to the shopping centre and supermarket. The new manager Yorrick, is working really hard on the renovations, and once complete, the place will be as good as new. The staff are great, and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was... More

Just read some of the reviews below. I must have been on another planet. We were there Oct 2013. Spent 14 nights there. What a dump.
