Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After our first booking for accommodation on Niue became unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances Stafford and Salome came to the rescue and certainly went the extra mile making our stay the best. They say local knowledge is a great thing and we sure came with plenty of questions about this fascinating island and its history, Stafford, a long time local, or one of his regular guests at the bar were more than helpful enriching our stay on this fascinating island. After an afternoons snorkel trip further up the coast or one of the many walks on the island a cold drink in this climate is a must, whether it be icy beer or a fresh coconut calling by Stafford and Salome 'Sails Bar' is an excellent choice and great way to just relax and watch the sunset to complete the perfect day.

We have just returned from spending three weeks with Stafford and Salome in beautiful Coral Gardens. The whale watching from the adjacent Sails Bar was spectacular and Stafford's Wednesday Quiz Night is an island must.

Had been meaning to drop in on Sails bar for a few days but finally got the opportunity on the day before we left - and we wished we had tried it out sooner. Stafford is a great host - says it like it is - and was really good company. His prices are fabulous and he makes a mean cocktail!! Beautiful spot and the cats are pretty cute too... definitely worth a visit or two.. or three..

Thank you Stafford and Lome, my girls and I had an amazing trip and stay at your beautiful accommodation. As hosts they could not do enough for us, the location was close enough to Alofi but private enough to enjoy the amazing scenery from our deck and from the bar. Meeting the friendly locals and taking part in the weekly Trivia night quiz was some of the highlight of our trip. Very relaxed environment would definitely recommend this beautiful place and would stay again on our next visit.

Spent a lovely time at this Motel, booking two of the chalets. Stafford and his wife were excellent hosts and we would most definitely stay here again. Basic, comfortable with everything we needed. Thanks for the complimentary drinks!

Our verandah at the front of our fale was a great place to sit and read and enjoy the view of the sea. Even better - at night (at the end of August) we heard a whale "blowing" in the sea just nearby! Our room had all the required facilities, and was very pleasant. A couple of things weren't so well designed (such as the bed-lamps, which were rather poorly positioned, and insect screen on the front door - all the windows were well protected with screens though), but there was plenty of space. Well located for driving to excellent snorkelling places nearby - Limu Pools was a favourite for us - and back to restaurants in Alofi when you don't want to cook. (There's also a restaurant shuttle bus apparently, though we didn't use that.)

We had a marvellous week staying at Coral Gardens. Stafford was super helpful; in the lead up, tolerating my endless questions by email, arranging a rental car for our stay, meeting us at the airport and getting us on our way, and then we arrived to a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine! We can't blame him for the rainy weather i guess.....(!). the other guests were relaxed and friendly and we joined in the trivia night, great fun. the unit had everything that was needed for a lovely and relaxing stay, Stafford and Salome were always on hand if we had MORE questions, with friendly and helpful advice. The rental car was a bonus and enabled us to see almost every one of the swimming spots around the island. Didn't quite make it to the bottom of the cave snorkelling spot on the property - right dodgy despite Stafford's assurances from his safe position at the top! Sitting on the deck with a cold drink, chatting to Stafford and gazing out over the ocean is one of our highlights. We came home feeling relaxed, recharged and could not fault a thing.

Great view. Relaxing self-contained fale which had everything we needed. Went for a dip down the amazing chasm on-site. Great price and Stafford was a good host. Try the cocktails. Saw whales just off shore while sitting on the deck of the fale. Handy to town and handy to some of the best snorkelling spots. Would definitely stay there again if we return to Niue.

We were looking forward to having a nice cold glass of beer at Sails Bar on our way back from a day discovering the nearby chasms and seatracks. The location indeed is breath taking and the beer was cold. It was the person behind the bar which let it down. He was a rude, bitter old man. Maybe we caught him on a bad day but we spoke to many other tourists that said the same. Time to move on and get someone with a bit more personality and a smile goes a nice way. The only upside was that Mark Cross, the famous painter was having a beer there and he is a lovely man with a lot of local knowledge. We did not feel welcome there at all.

Your review lacks credibility. There are no Sales Bars on Niue only Sails Bar. If you want to join the tourism police get your uniform from the tourism office.

We stayed at the Coral Gardens for a week in early September 2015. It was all we thought it would be. Clean, comfortable and fully self catering. Huge bathroom and the view was superb from our own decking. We saw whales everyday from our decking and also at other locations around the island. The chasm which is within the grounds of the coral gardens was awesome (after some "Indiana Jones" type antics to get to it! ) Ropes and ladders which is challenging for the faint at heart but rewarding. As are most of Niue's stunning chasms. The Sails Bar at Coral Gardens has a stunning view and wonderful for sunset drinks. Its a no brainer that we will be going back to Niue and we would have no hesitation in staying at the Coral Gardens again. Niue was an absolute gem with the clearest water and the snorkelling was great. A little tricky to get in at some locations but well worth it.
