The rooms are very big - clean and lovely to sleep in. Views are amazing from here and being next to local restaurants and shopping centres, it is central to many facilities. We had a great stay here and as we travelled with a large group our needs were met all in one space
This property is an apartment style hotel and is really very well appointed with a dishwasher, microwave, TV and laundry with a washing machine, iron and iron board. There is Air Con in the bedroom.The bathroom had a shower over the bath. The shower was great with lots of hot water available. The room I stayed in had a lovely big balcony accessed from both the lounge and bedroom looking out to the Baie des citrons. There is a swimming pool available by going out of the hotel and up some stairs next to the hotel. I didn't use it as it is very exposed to the wind and while I was visiting it was very windy. The apartment was clean and tidy and the staff at reception were friendly and helpful (special mention for Jean who was amazing in helping to change my transport arrangements) very different from some of the staff I have encountered at other properties in Noumea. There is a superette/shop attached to the property with a small selection of goods.The superette is open 6:30 -10am each morning and 5 - 8pm Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday only. The apartments are really self catering holiday accommodation however if required you can purchase breakfast from the shop which can be charged back to your room and is available in the small cafeteria next to the shop. This is buffet style but the choices (cereal, yoghurt, juice, breads and egg) although sufficient for a basic breakfast, are not those of a hotel buffet. There is no daily maid service except on weekends - they don't even change the towels. Complimentary products like soap, shampoo, and even toilet paper are only provided free at arrival although there was a soap, and shampoo left for every day I was booked in. You must renew these yourself during your stay and if you don't have transport to a supermarket the shop has these items available. What I missed having was an initial supply of teabags, coffee, sugar and milk which is normal, even in apartment hotels, in Australia. As my flight got to Tontouta after 11pm it was after 1am before I got to the hotel after my transport service had delivered people to houses around Noumea. It would have been great to have been able to make myself a cup of tea but there was nothing and obviously this is not something I would carry on an International flight.
The friendly, welcoming staff went out of their way to help our holiday be one that we will remember: thank you. The room was clean and we came prepared knowing that although there is a kitchen, is is sparsely equipped. Comfortable bed, warm water and a great balcony overlooking the sea.
Great location, between both Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons beaches; restaurants and bars within 1-3 minutes' walk. Good pool - almost always empty. Apartment basically furnished but quite adequate and nice to have washing machine, dishwasher, iron etc plus Aussie plugs as well as European ones. 2 balconies in 2 bed apartments. Only drawback was noise from nearby clubs, but once all doors closed it was minimal. Air con not that efficient so could get stuffy and a bit hot at night. Otherwise great value - staff friendly and helpful. Would stay again! Merci pour tout! Vraiment sympa!
This apartment complex is right on the beach of Baie de Citrons and close to cafes and restaurants. Wonderful to wake up each morning and look out over the Bay - sunny and sheltered from the wind if you have apartment overlooking the Baie de Citrons. Nice space and a good kitchen with all we needed. I have to add, really impressed with the fabulous sized wine glasses for those lovely French wines you can buy at the superettes dotted around the place! Bakery a ten minute walk up the road for fresh baguettes and croissants each morning. Staff were very friendly and overall a great experience. Would happily return here.
Superb location and stunning view. Apartment had everything we needed for our week there and the shop next door was handy for any bits & pieces we'd forgotten (though the hours were a little patchy & sometimes inconvenient). My French was very poor so it was a struggle to communicate with staff but they were very friendly & welcoming. Highly recommended.
Great location close to both Anse Vata and Baie de Citrons, plus the many cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. Also close to the water taxis to the islands. Apartments are large and comfortable but not exactly well appointed. Very limited pots and pans (no trays for pizza or roasting), and not many utensils. Only 1 tea towel supplied for an 8 night stay. Bring dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent. They also don't leave even a handful of teabags or coffee sachets, so bring a few things if you can't get straight to the supermarket. You can hear a little bit of noise from the other rooms but nothing too problematic. Really very happy with everything for the price paid.
We have stayed in the one and two bed apartments , they are clean and well cared for some could do with a bit of modernisation but on the whole good value for money. On the downside because they are so close to the nightlife, Friday and Saturdays night are more expensive to stay. Five minutes walk away are the restaurants and bars my favourite is La Barca a tapis bar good food good service and a nightclub right next door. Be aware that the nightclubs are full of pretty women who main aim in life is going down your pockets and relieving you of your wallet. This happened to my sons, I had my wife to protect me,lol.
I have stayed there a number of times before, but this was the best presented I have seen Casa del Sole. I am not sure if all apartments have been renovated but ours had been and it looked lovely. it is very large and the balcony is it most amazing feature. We were lucky to be on the 15th floor and to overlook Baie des Citrons. The other side, overlooking Anse Vata is usually a lot windier and you cannot always stay on the balcony. we had breakfast on the balcony every morning and the view was just amazing. The apartment was clean and the reception staff very helpful. Wifi is a bit of a problem at Casa del Sole, but it was generally OK. We had also asked for a double bed in the second bedroom but only got 2 single beds, which was not really a problem, but it would have been nice to have a double bed.There can be a bit of noise on the weekend from the restaurants and nightclub below, but if you close the doors, you cannot hear it.
This relatively modern building is conveniently located for walking around the adjacent bays, to small shops and restaurants. Public bus stops for transport into the city are closeby. One side of this oval shaped building faces the Baie des Citrons and is the sunny side. The other side faces Anse Vata (the next bay down). The rooms are spacious and comfortable and were found to be clean. Amenities are adequate if somewhat in need of maintenance and the whole apartment is quite spartan. Wi-fi, for which you have to pay extra, was next to useless. The kitchen lacked sufficient cooking utensils, bowls etc. Obtaining missing drinking glasses etc from reception was found to be a major undertaking. Next time, we will first consider other places to stay.
