"Our flight was delayed and the airline put us up here. The manager was fantastic, making sure that we had all we needed. She went out of her way to accommodate everyone on what must have been a very stressful day. The room was clean and tidy. Kaiviti is in a great location - walking distance to town and a local supermarket. Having a kitchenette is a bonus. Top spot for those travelling to Vanuatu on a budget."

"Have just spent a week at Kaiviti Motel. Loved every minute. Very convenient to shops, cafes, markets, restaurants, and the waterfront esplanade in Port Villa. The pool is great as is the cafe adjacent to the pool. But the best part about it is the staff. Alecia is the young manager of this family-run business, and she could not have been more helpful and accommodating, bending over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay, and giving us heaps of local tips on what to see and do. I will definitely be staying here again."

"The internet was nicely set up and ready to be used, that for me was a breakthrough as we did not have a good experience with (another venue) the last time we had an actual conference meeting! The space was accommodating and the staffs were super helpful. Thank you"
