We enjoyed the pool a lot. The room was cleaned daily and the breakfast and dinner was great. The wifi is not available in each room. Reception always available. Good location you can walk to the centre of Port Vila.

We went in the off season and the Moorings were doing renovations at the time so got a brilliant deal for a weeks accommodation. The hotel is lovely but it is definitely the staff that make the place as enjoyable as it is. They are all so welcoming and willing to assist you with anything you need. The Moorings is...

Although a little small the room was sufficient and very clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were always happy and efficient. The pool was excellent and the bar service and meals top notch. Extremely good value for money and a stones throw from main business area. We will definitely be back as soon as possible.

We stayed at Moorings from Christmas Eve to the 28th. I think with the time of year we were lucky to feel like the place wasn't too crowded. The service was excellent, sometimes the front desk wasn't attended but we were always able to find a friendly staff member to help us out. The rooms are small, but most importantly...

We got low season rates and thought the Moorings was an unbelievable value for $60 a night. The rooms weren't huge, but certainly adequate, 6 good cable tv channels, onsite bar and restaurant, nice breakfast included. There was also a nice pool and ocean access with sea kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Staff was agreeable and did their jobs...

This was our second time back at The Moorings. On arrival we found a basket of fruit and an arrangement of flowers in our room with "Welcome back". It was a lovely gesture.

Just in time to beat a thunder storm and tropic down pour, we arrived at Moorings just before lunch. Whilst sitting in the perfect location overlooking the ocean and watching the storm pass by, we enjoyed a tasty lunch and a wine with great service. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I would recommend this as an ideal lunch...
