The King Solomon is not the nicest hotel in Honiara but it is very adequate. Clean and comfortable, with decent security and above average service (for the islands). BUT . . . at what price???
It seems that anything that is adequate is considered a luxury in the Solomon Islands, for luxury prices are what they want to charge you. I would stay there again, but I would want to make sure I was on a business expense account, for I, personally, would not want to pay the price out of my own pocket.
What the whole country of the Solomon Islands needs to realize is that half the reason that tourism is not all that popular is that tourists can go to other islands (think Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga, or the Cook Islands) and get twice the value for half the money.
When presented with such a choice, most people will want to give the hot and sweaty Solomons a pass . . . and simply go elsewhere.More
