For the price in Port Vila and for a seafront location, I am not sure this hotel can't be beaten. Excellent value for money. Johnathan and the other staff are friendly and helpful. They also have great live music on Saturday nights.

Breakfast is decent, but I recommend to come

Friendly staff and I am sure some rooms are good.
Basic rooms are well..basic.
No frills just plain walls with bed and shower and no windows really.
But, still clean and at 7300 ok compared to others.
Closest to airport also and an easy walk into central.
Management would do well

The Moorings is freshly renovated in most parts and very inviting.
The staff were more than accommodating for all of our needs. Always greeting with a friendly smile and a joke here and there. The resort is very clean and maintained to a good standard. Our room was a small 1brm

We spent an entire week at Moorings and the place grew on us. Staff were wonderful and pleasant. Prices were reasonable and the food was good. Rooms were comfortable, tidy and clean. The location was great.

I had a second floor room facing the harbour which was fabulous. I overlooked the bay and the water was quite close by, I could watch schools of fish swim by at night. When I say 'shabby' it's just that the towels are a little on the old side and some of the maintenance is not qu

Is it on a beach?
No it's not 'on' a beach per say, but it does have an elevated sandy area with direct water access.

Hi, what is the average price for food and drink at the hotel restaurant. Also what is the weather like early Feb and how much is airport transfer to and from. Thanks
Dear Chanelly5, Thank you for your queries. Our dining is regarded as one of the best value for money dining in Vanuatu. We invite you to visit our official website, where you will find a copies of our beverage and main menus, along with the weekly lunch and dinner specials. Guidelines forbid us to provide links on forums, apologies. I believe the above replies have covered the weather. Still considered the tropical wet season although the pattern changes all the time. 28-32 degrees Celsius on average. Humidity varying between 85-95%. Our waterfront location however provides outstanding ventilation and very comfortable cooler evenings. An official airport shuttle is priced at 1500VT per person, one way. A taxi is between 1200-1500VT one-way. Kind regards, Yorick Nicholls General Manager Moorings Hotel

What is the charge for the canoes
Given the budget rating of Moorings Hotel, and how expensive such equipment is to acquire in Vanuatu, the hotel does have a modest charge for this activity. The public rate is 800VT per person/hour, and the in-house guest rate is 500VT. Thank you for your understanding.

How much is the paid wifi and how reliable is it since I will need for work. Also, does the room have a desk or table to work at? Finally, are there discounts or benefits for someone who stays several weeks.
Hi Calvin, The paid wifi, also known as in-room wifi, ranges from 1000VT for 500mb to 4900VT for 4000mb. 2mb download speed is the reliability. The connection ceases every 1-2hrs, and requires re-logging in, as an anti-download measure for the benefit of all. The public areas offer a connection of 512kbps. Desks are not featured in the rooms as these would severely compromise space thus comfort. We are however currently ordering foldable models as a compromise. We have yet to find a suitable model. In the meantime we have a couple of handmade units we can place in your room subject to their availability of course. Short of that, restaurant tables can also work although those are quite wide. Yes we very much look after our long stay guests. Depending on your length of stay, we apply various specials allowing you free nights. Kind regards, Yorick Nicholls General Manager

"ask for a view or poolside view"
"Harbour side is very quiet."
"Best rooms are the downstairs poolside rooms."
"Get a room furtherest fro bar area- room 303 for example."
"Quiet place to rest or relax outside overlooking the waters."
US$ 74 - US$ 151 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
