After first 4 days spent at the hotel Chantilly's on the Bay I moved to this motel for saving money. The comfort here was a little bit less but regarding money saved it deserved. Most of rooms here has no TV, but if you like to have a TV into your room you can order one but a little bit more expensive. The single problem I met here it was the ants. The smallest ants in the world sometimes, but rear, disturb you. Don't let the food outside of fridge because the fridge is the unique place where the ants don't go in. Don't be scare, there are not so many, and you can live here loving them.
For saving money I can say to you that I spent here 7500vt/night (1eur = 136vt)
Unique Quality: facilities are: swimming pool with fast access, kitchen but not a very good one, air condition, and not too far of the city center.
Directions: going out from the hotel turn right then after 10m turn right again and go straight on walking about 15 min until the market place, center of the city.
Vila tends to be an expensive town; if you want to get out of the expensive resorts and have some extra money to enjoy the town, kaiviti is a good choice for accomodation. It's probably about in the mid-range of choices in town. It's less than a kilometer from the middle of town. The people are very nice and the place is clean and well maintained.
Just be warned that while the office is almost always staffed when they are supposed to be, "island time" shows its effects at time - for example, while the office technically stays open until after people from the last plane to land at the airport has checked in, they sometimes put up a sign like "taking a shower, back in 5-10 minutes" -- and it still may be up 3 hours later!! This caused some problems for me since I had to check out so I could leave early the next morning to catch a flight!
Other than that, though, there were no problems.
Unique Quality: The best part of this hotel is that each room is equipt with cooking facitilites. There's a little fridge and a range with a couple burners. There is a full set of pots/pans/dishes/silverware. A supermarket is about 2 blocks away so you can get food easily.
There is also a pool and a small snack bar next to it. There is a restaurant next door named Gino's - they will deliver and you can have it charged to your room account.
They also have a bunch of books, newspapers, and games in the lobby to borrow.
Directions: Next to Club 21, on the hill leading out of town.
A happy friendly motel, 5 minutes walk to town, ideal for business or leisure. All units are self catering with fans, IDD phones, some have air conditioning. Most overlook the pool. Arrive a stranger and leave as a friend, Joy the manager certainly has an aura to make everyone happy.
Unique Quality: bar-restaurant said to be serving the best hamburgers in town. Tours, rental cars arranged. Ideal for groups. Laundry and babysitting available.
Directions: next door to Le Meridien Port Vila which is more expensive
