A few of us (foreign tourists) were brought to the Ela Beach and ate in one of their restaurants, though to be honest I'm not certain if it was the Grand Brasserie or Enzo's or what ... doesn't matter, though, we had an excellent dinner (two of us shared a "medium" pizza which was huge by my own Hong Kong...

Reviewed 3 April 2017

Clean, modern, bright rooms for a very comfy stay in Pom. The restaurant is not bad either by POM's standards. Swimming pools could have been better sited though. And taxis long waiting time is a bit of a nuisance. But overall a mid-high range great option and a 2-minutes distance only from POM's best Italian restaurant, Sogno.

Stayed here for almost 3 weeks and was happy most of the time. Decent pool for lap swimming. Good restaurant and pleasant staff.

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.

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....
