The night we stayed they had live music and when that finished the nightclub next door took over. We had another night booked but decided not to stay as our sleep had been so disturbed.
The location is good and the restaurant was good.
Out hotel room key did not work. Our toilet didn't work. The shower was cold. The staff at the front desk didn't seem to know what they were doing. The place was awful.
Breakfast very average and noisy with early start of building next door.
Lovely, friendly and obliging staff. Beautiful location with gorgeous gardens.
Noise from other tenants, noise from the post nightclub revellers, noise from children bouncing balls outside the room . The restaurant gave a ridiculously small portion of fish with fish and chips on the first night so I didn't eat there again. My partner ate hamburgers a couple of times. The lack of a functioning coffee machine meant a daily walk into town for my coffee! Lack of furniture meant there was only a few banana lounges (3) available and I borrowed a second chair to sit in outside my room - No where to sit and read!
The location is only 10 minutes walk from downtown Port Vila.
In four days we had to use four rooms because of 1) broken door, 2) no hot water, 3) broken toilet and 4) no electricity. Staff response was "Are you sure there is no hot water? Huh." and in the evening "Well, I guess you can't use the toilet until the handyman comes tomorrow" (14 hours later).
too noisy, could hear the guy next door vomiting!
That it was close to town. It was nice and peaceful My unit fronted the water ,
The fact there was no reading light or bedside light . There was only one light on the fan which was quite dull . Only one tv channel that worked .
Staff were all very helpful, friendly and happy. We had lost our phone and one of the staff lent us one and got us a reading lamp as the room only had one dim light in the fan in the bedroom.
Towels were threadbare and sheets nearly threadbare. No reading lights but we were given one, no coffee in room but they found us some. We got internet connection early on the first night and could not connect after that for the 3 days we were there. Wouldn't stay there again.
I loved the convenience of the location to town. As we were there in off season, it was quiet and you felt like you were at home hanging with family and friends as opposed to being holed up in a strange hotel. The staff were wonderful, they kept the grounds in immaculate condition. Alti/Elti one of your servers needs a special mention as do all of the team. Thank you
The complex does need some cosmetic work and amenities like nicer newer towels would not have gone astray. Equipment such as the coffee machine was broken for the entire stay. Only minor things but the main concern was how the expat chap who appeared to be in charge of the resort spoke to the staff, it was not pleasant.
Short drive to airport and walking distance from town centre. Excellent position next to beach, no mozzies noted in February. Plenty of local restaurants and cafés. Staff helpful and friendly.
Hotel restaurant closed. 6 inch long black creepy thing with lots of legs running across floor, but that is not the hotel fault. Pool was a bit murky.
We liked the friendly staff who were very attentive. We enjoyed our meal and breakfast the following morning. It was affordable and value for money.
At dusk there was a cloud of mosquitoes under our table and we needed to move from our preferred seating, perhaps a coil or citronella candle would have been useful to eliminate the worry of malaria and dengue.
The staff were amazing, especially with our young child. Friendly, open and welcoming. Beautiful deck for afternoon drinks. Even with the nightclub right next door, we did not hear it at all. Close to town and services - we were able to walk to most of our daily trips.
Room was a bit small. Shower temperature fluctuated hot / cold every 30-60 seconds. Would have been good if breakfast was included in the room package.
Nice room views from harbour view rooms. 10min walk to town. friendly staff. Good budget food options at hotel restaurant. Good value happy hour cocktails 5-7pm.
The Moorings is conveniently close to the airport and an easy 10-15 minute walk to downtown Port Villa. The outdoor patio provides a nice over-the-water outlook to eat and drink (The over-bright lighting kills the night view). A great hotel for people in transit that only stay 1 or 2 nights and don't need to fully unpack. Staff were all friendly and helpful though not necessarily effective.
Very small room. No bedside/reading lights. With an incredibly noisy refrigerator and doors slamming all night it was like trying to sleep through a gunfight. No flat surfaces in the room suitable to use for writing or typing. They couldn't organize a 5 am ride to the airport. The Moorings is an easy-to-read case study of the poor value-for-money that Vanuatu provides.
staff were most polite and understood that the Moorings is in Urgent need of an Upgrade. It did not stop the staff from working around the difficult situations and doing their best.We had a good time elsewhere.
The owner/owners of the Moorings should be held accountable for what the staff & patrons have to put up with. The Moorings is past its used by date. If it was in Australia it would be closed tomorrow. I feel sorry for Management & Staff who are wonderful.
Having my reservation cancelled. Credit card charged against instruction. Still waiting for refund.
Location to town. friendly staff bar facilities. pool
no balcony and easy chairs in room. had to ask for a room with balcony which I thought had paid for. had a hire car which was damaged during night. security not good.
it's location is perfect if you need to stay in town You get what you pay for ....
the restaurant .......
The location the view harbour the eating area The pool
not very sound proof could hear other rooms TV shower etc
Staff were exceptional, location within a handy 7 minute ride from the Airport. Air con icy cold. Little balcony with view was very nice. Great facilities. Night watchman very helpful, got us a cab when our driver let us down, helped with luggage etc
I just wished we'd stayed longer to really enjoy the facilities. Only there less than 12 hours stopover before early morning flight.
