Stayed here for almost 3 weeks and was happy most of the time. Decent pool for lap swimming. Good restaurant and pleasant staff. Had a problem with someone trying to break into my room at 3am one night. They got the door open but didn't get past the safety chain. Slammed the door shut then called front desk who didn't...

I stayed at the hotel for a few days during a business trip. It’s a smaller hotel, which I personally prefer anyway, and also a quite nice hotel. They offer FOC shuttle services from and to the airport. After arrival, immigration etc. you’ll see the “Coral Sea Hotel” staff at the arrival hall, just approach them and that’s it. To...

I’ve stayed at a few of the Coral Sea chain and they’re usually old and tired, although certainly not below average for PNG. Ela Beach was a lot better, at least for me. I think I was in a “Premier Tower Suite” – I might have been upgraded but the price is in line with the other major Port Moresby...

We love watching the rugby at Ela Beach Hotel. Sunday morning the Manager (Fijian Nationality) opened the bar early for us, turned the TV's on and served our delicious breakfast and cappuccinos in front of the tele! This review is long overdue and we are really impressed with the staff at Ela, especially the Fijian lady! This has not been...

Some apple pie and ice-cream and a cold soda water provided welcome relief to the beating sun. We came down to have a look at Ela beach, went for a walk, caused a bit of a scene, so cabbed it straight back out. Ela beach hotel was nice and safe.

The Ela Beach hotel is safe and basic. The restaurant serves good plain food, a good sized serve from a fairly standard menu. The coffee is great, the waitstaff occasionally forget why they are there and leave you sitting for long periods of time. Check in is fast and efficient check out is the opposite, so leave plenty of time....

I have stayed twice at the hotel. The first time in the new section which is quite good and views of the beach. The second time in the older section. The rooms were comfortable but smaller. The restaurant food is OK
