We lived in Noumea and have been back several times since, always staying at Casa del Sole. Never again. It has really deteriorated. We booked a one bedroom appartment on the tenth floor. The first night we realised that since our last visit the Baie des Citrons has been taken over by nighclubs. So if you dont mind sleeping with five completely open night clubs within a few hundred metres go right ahead and book here. The traffic flow has also increased and even with the doors closed it felt like we were sleeping on the road. Then there was the bedroom wall which touched the wall of the lift shaft. You get the picture. No sleep.
The next day we asked to change rooms. The unhelpful girl on reception told us to come back three times. We gave up. She did not have time to find us another room.
A few days later another very helpful young man said we could move at the end of our first week and the woman in charge gave us a two bed appartment on the top floor.
No better noise wise.
You have to understand that the locals rent appartments for the weekend or for a few nights to come and party. We had noise and loud music every night, kids going wild and furniture being dragged around non stop. We had to call security twice.
Down below in the streets local indigenous people hang around drinking and shouting all night.
Oh and I have not yet mentioned the smell of cannabis from the next appartment.
Noumea is a lovely place and our friends tell us we should have gone to Le Lagon or the new Best Western at Anse Vata. Both have kitchens.
They also told us casa del sole regularly gets huge groups of school kids from Australia and New Zealand. Not what you want during a holiday.
I could write a lot more but am going to go out to avoid being intoxicated by marijuanah smoking from our charming neighbours.PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE!
I have had the worst two weeks of my life and need a holiday now.
