We stayed here during the Easter break and were in Luganville for the primary purpose of diving the Coolidge.
The hotel is centrally located on the main street of Luganville, with most places a quick walk around from the hotel. The rooms are basic but clean, have a safe and TV (with dvd player). The toilet is a bit tiny. The room we had was overlooking the front main street of Luganville and had a big balcony, which was great for sitting in the evenings and also drying our wet clothes from diving :). Downstairs reception also has a good selection of DVD's - most were very recent movies (1-2 months recent) - we were happily surprised.
Alan Powers is just 50m up the road from this hotel and was very convenient as we could head home to have hot showers in between our morning and afternoon dives, without needing to wait for a drop-off or pick-up. Simon (owner) at the front desk is also very helpful and can organise tours for you to champagne beach and the blue holes.
There is a great asian restaurant just downstairs - Ocean King (different owners) that does very good seafood. Le Jardins (french restaurant) is also just 50m down the road and there are plenty of supermarkets just around the corner for any food and other supplies. Deco Stop is also a short walk up the hill - so there are plenty of food options all around. We
There is free wireless available at the hotel!
Bottom-line: This is no resort facility but the location from Alan Powers dive store and food options around make this a decent and cheap option in Luganville for divers.
