Thank you Stafford and Lome, my girls and I had an amazing trip and stay at your beautiful accommodation. As hosts they could not do enough for us, the location was close enough to Alofi but private enough to enjoy the amazing scenery from our deck and from the bar. Meeting the friendly locals and taking part in the weekly...

Spent a lovely time at this Motel, booking two of the chalets. Stafford and his wife were excellent hosts and we would most definitely stay here again. Basic, comfortable with everything we needed. Thanks for the complimentary drinks!

Our verandah at the front of our fale was a great place to sit and read and enjoy the view of the sea. Even better - at night (at the end of August) we heard a whale "blowing" in the sea just nearby! Our room had all the required facilities, and was very pleasant. A couple of things weren't so...

We had a marvellous week staying at Coral Gardens. Stafford was super helpful; in the lead up, tolerating my endless questions by email, arranging a rental car for our stay, meeting us at the airport and getting us on our way, and then we arrived to a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine! We can't blame him for...

Great view. Relaxing self-contained fale which had everything we needed. Went for a dip down the amazing chasm on-site. Great price and Stafford was a good host. Try the cocktails. Saw whales just off shore while sitting on the deck of the fale. Handy to town and handy to some of the best snorkelling spots. Would definitely stay there again...

We were looking forward to having a nice cold glass of beer at Sails Bar on our way back from a day discovering the nearby chasms and seatracks. The location indeed is breath taking and the beer was cold. It was the person behind the bar which let it down. He was a rude, bitter old man. Maybe we caught...

Your review lacks credibility. There are no Sales Bars on Niue only Sails Bar. If you want to join the tourism police get your uniform from the tourism office.

We stayed at the Coral Gardens for a week in early September 2015. It was all we thought it would be. Clean, comfortable and fully self catering. Huge bathroom and the view was superb from our own decking. We saw whales everyday from our decking and also at other locations around the island. The chasm which is within the grounds...

I'm not one to write reviews usually but I was actually blown away by my stay here. For such a great price, we had Fale #4 which had an amazing view over the water where within only 2 minutes of first sitting on the deck we heard and then saw whales swimming just off shore. We were lucky to visit...

An all too short a holiday and can't praise this place enough, such a beautiful Motel/Fale with stunning sea views and gardens. Whales and Dolphins spotted and heard every day and night right below the Fale, so close to shore, fantastic experience. Instantly felt relaxed staying here, Fale serviced every day along with fresh fruit as needed and complimentary wine...

Thanks Stafford and Salome for getting us and bikes in boxes to and from the airport. We enjoyed the great view from our comfortable private fale especially of the sunsets. Also really appreciated was our hosts in depth knowledge of the island which they were happy to share with us. We wish we'd had more time to spend socialising at...
