We had lunch there on Mother's day and the food and service was exceptional. A standout for us was that we did not book and they were full, but because we came early at 11.30am, they went out of their way to accomodate us. This was special and we are indeed grateful. After lunch, we wanted to visit their coffee...

I was for 3 weeks in the hotel, until mid-May. Overall it is a pretty good place; but with some problems. Room is large and fairly ok. Mattress was ideal. Wifi was also working fairly well. Aircon worked well. One big problem was noise, on Friday and Saturday night. It was far too noisy (there is a night club in...

The Lamana is conveniently sited if you are working with government agencies, it's also within very easy walking distance of Vision City Shopping Mall which has a large supermarket and food court. The rooms in the Lamana are quite variable, I managed to get an upgrade and had no complaint at all but my colleagues found their room a bit...

Good ambience, courteous staff, multiple restaurants and a partying area are the highlights...a weekend stay could get noisy due to partying in the entertainment area, get the farthest room. The Indian chef at the Spices restaurant has a fan following. Some or other event keeps happening here.

First the positives: the staff were uniformly excellent and I enjoyed eating at the restaurants on offer. However the noise on Friday and Saturday nights was outrageous. For two nights I was unable to sleep until after the nightclub music was turned down at 4am (despite ear plugs etc). I now see that there are multiple earlier reports on this...

The Rio's Restaurant at Lamana is one of the best restaurants in Port Moresby. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. My friends and I did a surprise birthday party for a dear friend of ours and the staff made sure everything was perfect. It was a Wednesday night so it was pretty quiet which was nice because...

The hotel is in the main centre of Port Moresby. I was met by representatives at the airport with a Shuttle bus. The hotel is clean and large with many rooms. The main area is fenced for security that was maintained during the times I was there. There was a nice selection of restaurants and bars at the hotel. Service...

Not a bad place at all. Good sized rooms. Friendly staff and several restaurants to choose from. There was several outdoor boxing bouts on whilst I was there so a bit of entertainment also. No complaints at all about it. Would stay again.

The room was a bit small but quite comfortable. The restaurant and entertainment area was well set up and very well appointed. The Restaurant had the best steak that I have ever had in any Port Moresby Hotel.
