3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I did 4 days of diving with the crew at Coral Quays and would highly recommend them. Safety is their main priority which gave us a lot of comfort, they were very experienced and professional, they catered to our level of experience, all of their equipment was in good shape, their knowledge of the dive sites was great and they made each dive really enjoyable. And the dive sites in Santo are simply fantastic!!!! Thank you to the team at Coral Quays for making our dives awesome! We would definitely come back.

This is an understated resort that just grows and grows on you. Food is great and the local steaks are outstanding. The diving was simply spectacular. I still cant get over the Coolidge, the night dive, the stunning reef and most astonishingly of all, Million Dollar Point! At all times I felt comfortable and confident in the professionalism of the Dive Master leading the dives. After a days diving, lazing on the veranda, watching as the sun goes down over the channel is a memory I wont forget. I can understand how James A. Michener came to write "Tales of the South Pacific" while based on Espiritu Santo during the war. This island and this resort are hidden gems and not to be missed.

Aside from the great meals, this place was mediocre (to say the least) for staying a few nights, especially if you’re not going diving every day. The main thing was that there is NOTHING TO DO in the area. If you want to go to the beach, blue holes or just somewhere to snorkle, you will need to pay ~$170 AUD per couple every day to go out on a tour. The rooms are dingy, terribly lit and not worth a quarter of what we paid (~$140 AUD/night). The bathroom doors wouldn’t shut, the bedsheets could definitely use an upgrade and a whole barrage of other things. We ended up leaving this place on our 2nd night of 5 nights (lost our money but oh well) and found somewhere up further north (Lope Lope Lodge) for $185/night. I don’t think words could describe the difference of how much better this new place was!! In summary, unless you’re spending 2 nights here and going diving every day... don’t come here for a relaxing holiday.

Even though we were staying at another hotel, they provided us with an introductory dive as I had never done any scuba diving before. The instructor (Kali, I believe) was great in providing the instructions and all the assistance required and we dove in the One Million Dollar Point. It was amazing!

We stayed at Coral Quays for 6 nights and 4 days of diving. Coral Quays took care of everything for our diving, and facilitated so much for us in regards to external trips and dives. It rained a tad, which helped it cool down! Didn't affect what we got up to though!! Phil & Charmaine made much effort to take care of us all. Look forward to coming back again in 2018! Diving procedures were very safe and briefings clear and easy to follow. Very confident in recommending safe diving here on the awesome wreck of the President Coolidge!

Tom, Kali, Stevie, Cam and resort staff were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The dive team are experienced, have local knowledge, qualified in SSI/SDI/TDI, have nitrox and all equipment on hand, and are fun. Safety is top priority for the team and nothing too small is a problem. Most go to Santo to dive the Coolidge which is an unforgettable experience, but the reefs are so untouched off Malo and Tutuba. The resort has direct jetty access for boat dives and a private beach entry to the Coolidge. The teams knowledge of the wrecks and reefs made each dive enjoyable, pointing out areas of interest and proactiveness towards conservation. Thanks Coral Quays for a great trip. I hope that we will return again one day to experience the Coolidge and the Lady.

I did my intro dive course on Tuesday with Coral Quays and I must say what an experience. I was quite nervous and Kali Chamberlin put me at ease straight away and gave me the confidence to relax and enjoy the whole experience. Once the dive was finished they made me feel right at home. Owner Charmaine gave me a lift back to my hotel as soon as I was ready to leave, great service! Looking forward to completing my open dive in November. Great experience, thanks guys

Don't sign their booking form for diving with this lot!! If you get sick and can't go they still take your money and won't refund. In other words they disagree you should not dive when you can not equalize!

Just stayed at Coral Quays Fish & Dive Resort, Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu for the second time and it is even better than before. Now diving and accommodation is combined and seamless making the experience far more relaxing. Tremendous dive sites like the Coolidge, Million Dollar Point and the Tucker make this a very different style of diving for us as we are based on the Great Barrier Reef.

Had a fabulous time diving the president Coolidge. Even a cyclone didn't prevent this team from ensuring our dives were sensational. the rooms were comfortable and clean. the staff were friendly and helpful
