Cannot understand the rating given by Kim W. This is out 5th visit to Vila and 3rd stay at Moorings. True it is not the Sheraton but then again, you are not paying for the Sheraton either. This motel is budget based pricing but is clean.The staff are warmer than the climate and go out of their way to cater to your needs. The meals were delicious and we regard it as a home away from home. Location is ideal with just a couple of minutes walk into town. I will agree that the nightclub does get a little loud and believe management is working on a solution to this.
If you want to hang around your room all day then this is probably not the place for you, however if your intentions are to get out and see the place and discover the cultures and do all the tourist acitivities Port Vila has to offer. Then this motel would be ideal.
Beware of comments from people who have not travelled and stayed in a third world country before. Would be happy to discuss this with questions.
