Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눇Lovely bed, electric blind & great air conditioning. Free wifi ( better than more upmarket hotel which claimed to provide free wifi but provided measly amount). It would be preferable if upstairs guests didn't clatter-around in heals. The tiled foors make noise an issue.

눉Lousy mattress Mean with supplies Cooking gear terrible
눇Nice people Two receptionists, Elizabet and Patricia , extra nice Cleaner and handyman also nice Good location
July 30, 2016
눉The mattress could be more hard.TV programs could be more in English,almost everything in French.Sometimes you can catch the film in English,but not so much.Another things is OK and nothing more to expect from budget hotel.
눇For Noumea it's the best hotel if you don't want luxury.Very close to the beach and bars (restaurants) on shore.So good enough location.Staff on the reception speaking English very well,except staff who makes cleaning and another.No one English word.The most nice person Elizabeth,who works on the reception.WFi is not free,only if you stay the hole month.So,if you want something not so expensive,then Marina Beach is the best place in Noumea.On this island is everything very expensive.I'm staying here already second month and i'm fine :-) Very quiet hotel and in the night nobody disturb you.Take the room 19 it's next to the reception.If i need to come here again,i prefer to stay the same hotel.

눉I would recommend some better cutlery, no knives in the kitchen and no cooking utensils. A cutting board would be good and a small pot for cooking. Also there was not enough toilet paper, so I ended up buying more myself and I ran out of soap on the last day and found some extra in my bag. The corridor was very noisy late at night with people coming in and slamming the entrance door with noisy shoes on the concrete floor, which woke me on several occasions. Bed was noisy when I moved over in the night too.
눇Friendly and very helpful staff. Warm room. Love the blinds. All the facilities were in good condition. Easy to use this space. Really pleased to have the safe. Great shower, basin and mirror. Great price. Excellent location and handy to buses. Wifi was awesome. Thank you so much.

눉You had to park your hire car in one of the nearby (narrow) streets, and spots were sometimes hard to find. The room was serviced only once during our 11-night stay.
눇The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location good - right at the north end of the Baie des Citrons with the beach practically right opposite. There were many restaurants and bars nearby, and it was only a 10-minute walk to the shopping centre at Port Plaisance. A small shop selling the basics was barely two minutes walk away. The room was simply furnished, but at 8,000 francs per night, was good value in comparison to the prices charged at other hotels.

눉Foam mattress, not firm enough. Can't sit up in bed against the wall to read or watch TV without the bed running away.
눇Excellent location. Cooking facilities. WiFi.
April 26, 2016
눉Lack of cooking utensils, cleaning materials (tea towels, sponge. detergent) and crockery. Room was never serviced (Rubbish disposed of nor toilet paper replaced. A lot of internal noise at night.
눇Wonderful staff. Location. Security good.
February 28, 2016

눇Staff and Houskeeper are profesional and kindly and friendly. Location is 5 minutes to walk to Lemon (Citoron) beach. Room with kichen is clern and useful.
January 12, 2016
눇Location to good beach & amazing coral reef. Away from the tourist resorts. The staff were very hospitable, friendly & extremely helpful. I would stay again!
December 15, 2015
눉Not much of a view, phones in the room would be good, and Jr would also be good if the room was cleaned and sheets changed at least every 2 or 3 days.
눇Good location, helpful and friendly staff, I like having a kitchenette and being able to cook, the room had character
September 11, 2015
눉There was no servicing done .No clean towels or anything like that.We had to find the receptionist to get some toilet paper.Having some pots and plates ect. ,there was no dish washing detergent or dish cloth or teatowel,ect. It was a bit poor service
July 7, 2015
눉The bed was quite hard, although we got used to it after the first couple of nights.
눇We loved our stay at Marina Beach Hotel. Walking distance to Baie de Citrons, Anse Vata Beach, supermarket and glass bottom boat to Duck Island. The kitchenette was great for us as we cooked our own meals each night and were able to store food in the big fridge.
June 16, 2015
눉Noisy Missing kitchen utensils Not serviced in the 10 days we were there Wifi poor, kept dropping signal
눇Close to a good beach Walking distance to the central city (30 mins) Close to restaurants Close to a good corner store Good shower
June 2, 2015
눉We expected basic facilities as advertised but expected more self catering equipment as it was one of the reasons we chose this place. There was one pan; no pots or lids, no cutting board, two glasses but no cups or mugs, no detergent or scrubbers or cloths, the only knives were two steak knives, and no tea towel. We booked for 11 nights and were given 1 toilet roll and two small soaps. We bought more. there was a wardrobe and a bedside table, a place to put one suitcase a table and two chairs and a plate glass table on a block of wood that served as a desk. No views
눇location was near bus stop and beaches and restaurants. A good supermarket was located in nearby Port Plaisance and a store was just around the corner. This place is clean. Staff are helpful. Roadside parking is ok
May 14, 2015
눇The location is superb. Close to the Port de Plaisance with all kinds of shops. Baie des Citrons is a quiet, beautiful beach area. In the weekend some nightlife. Also close to Anse Vata. The staff is very friendly and helpful !!!
April 23, 2015
눉Rubbish bin in kitchenette had not been emptied from last guest. Toilet roll was half used on check-in and when it ran out during week's stay no spare roll available and was told I needed to purchase toilet paper. Minor irritation but miserly for a hotel.
눇Welcoming staff. Clean room (mostly). Decent shower. V good location.
March 17, 2015
눉The room isnt cleaned on a daily basis.everithing else is good
눇The facilities are renovated and its good to stay there.A supermarket is at Port Plaisance so you can shop. Bus 10 is going firectly to place des cocotiers

눉There was nowhere to sit outside the room except the front steps. No garden, tables, - no-where to talk to others and sit and relax outside. I arrived late after shops had closed and there was no coffee, tea, milk etc. It would have been nice after such a long day. So I boiled some water and drank that.
눇The people were very kind and patient and friendly. Patricia, M.J. and Elizabeth. Close to the beach and cafes at Baie De Citrons. Literally 2 mins walk. There was a great little Vietnamese corner store with fresh food cooked daily as well for take out of the fridge or warmer. Also fresh fruit and all other grocery items. The air con was a blessing as I was there in the hot wet season. TV was perfect with lots of French. Shower was great, sheets were cotton.
January 25, 2015
눉Small bed, bad pillows, electrical system won't handle cookstove and other appliances use at the same time. When you cook, no TV or aircon. Not many kitchen utensils, we brought ours.
눇Good Location, good price, helpful staff, excellent shower.
December 6, 2016

눉Sewerage smells a constant companion in our rooms.
눇Bed was good. Quiet.
May 3, 2015
눇Excellent help from reception with things to do and speaking with local tour guides.
March 15, 2014
눉Lack of comfortable seating in which to relax. Chair designs might be quirky and look good in photos but not suitable for sitting on for any length of time after a meal.
눇Location - short walking distance to supermarket, beach, cafés and also bus stops for travel to town centre. Not expensive so you get what you pay for - no frills but clean and, apart from one noisy night which can happen anywhere, quiet. Kitchen cooking equipment and utensils adequate for stir fries etc, not gourmet meals. Staff pleasant and friendly. Public areas well looked after.
January 4, 2014
눉Nothing provided in the way of milk, tea, coffee, salt, dishwash liquid, tea towel etc. Would have liked spare towels as they were used for both showering and the beach and were only changed once.
눇We spent 11 nights. Lovely staff. Very handy to Baie des Citrons especially after you find the walkway shortcut. Very comfortable room with efficient, quiet air conditioning. Two single beds pushed together, table and two chairs, large shower room. It was great to have the adequate kitchen as it meant we could eat breakfast and lunch at home and avoid the high restaurant prices. Carparking space outside often full but always managed to find a space not far away.
September 27, 2013
눉Double bed was two singles pushed together which would separate. Though kitchenette supplied, only cooking utensil was one saucepan with no lid - no frying pan, no egg flip or tongs or cutting board or wooden spoons etc. All we could do was boil some eggs.
눇Friendly staff, great location, clean apartment
September 6, 2013
눉Stays under 7 days don't qualify for room service, meaning the room was getting quite dirty by the end! A load of washing cost 500XCP and another 500 for the dryer but the washing machine didn't dissolve the powder properly leaving it all over my clothes. The staff didn't speak any English. Luckily my girlfriend spoke enough French to get by. But the staff didn't add up the days of our stay correctly and tried to kick us out a day early! We had to provide the paperwork to prove otherwise.
눇Well-presented, clean and in a perfect location to both walk into to town or head along to the beaches.
July 28, 2013
눉- Very limited cutlery and plates - Near to no cooking utensils provided - No shower curtain or door (leads to a very wet and slippery bathroom floor)
눇- Very friendly, considerate staff. - Basic facilities supplied (electric stove, fridge, shower) - Comfortable bedding - Roller shutters
April 4, 2014
