Ramada Hotel & Suites Noumea4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Check in was a little time consuming but we got through it, the front of house person charged us 7000cfs for the airport shuttle and gave us a receipt for 6000cfs. But we were too tired to question the discrepancy. The studio was large, very clean and well appointed with a balcony and table and chairs outside. Housekeeping were friendly and hard working, our room was serviced to a high standard daily. The pool was good, and with a graduated entry perfect for young children, most guests were French. The bar / restaurant near the pool was well laid out with indoor and outdoor seating on decking, the food was cheap and cheerful, the usual burgers, club sandwiches, Caesar salad etc. Gym was small but well equipped with the exception of there being no treadmill. There were no in room movies but we could get BBC News and ABC. The hotel is in an OK location, there is a corner store and pharmacy a block away, everything in Noumea is expensive, or at least the same price as in Australia which is worth paying as I suspect the cost deters drunken Aussies who were nowhere to be seen. The beach near the hotel is not a good place to swim, it has filthy water feeding into it and it looks very dirty. But a short walk around the bay you will arrive at Bay Du Citroen, where the water is clean and the promenade similar to any you will find in the South of France. Packed with restaurant after restaurant, al fresco dining and bars with live music. Lots of fun and it's a safe walk back to Ramada. We travelled by bus to downtown Noumea where it is impossible to spend money. The shops are filled with total rubbish and very expensive. There is no point whatsoever in going there. The Ramada gives each room 250MB of WiFi per day, if you exceed the use the Tarif is high. In various restaurants/ bars and downtown Noumea there is free WiFi but it is VERY slow, if you are planning to do some work or stay in touch with your office while you are away, Noumea is not the place to go. If you want to cut off from the world, get a tan, chill out and not shop, Noumea is the perfect place to go and the Ramada, a value for money safe bet, just watch out for the girls on reception, they tried to argue that we hadn't paid for our room, ask for and keep receipts for everything.

Extremely unfriendly and unhelpful staff. Booked a suite, the bathroom was not cleaned on check-in. Curtains had holes and were dirty. The bedroom window was broken opened turning air con useless. Had to ask for another room. Bar staff was not able to make the cocktails that were on their menu (literally had to explain how to make a caipirinha). Ended up paying 200$ more than what booking.com had announced. Overall, the facilities are old and not well maintained. Parking is tiny and don't nearly offer enough space for customers. Strongly don't recommend that hotel. You can find better value for money.
The Ramada is pretty close to the beach and has a lovely palm tree fringed pool with a sandy perimeter. Our ocean view room on the 11th floor was spacious with wonderful views of Anderson Vata beach. The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay.
The room was sub standard with air conditioning that didn't work, doors that jammed and a table that was very tacky on top. The Hotel was very tired and needs a work over. At night you could see that there was only a small number of people staying there.
Great views from room. Staff is very helpful Air conditioning was not working properly in my room. But the weather was great so didn’t miss it much Please don’t eat the food in the restaurant Right next to the beach
Terrible. Go elsewhere. Untrained and/or plain rude Reception staff. Shower in Room did not work for the 4 days I was there. I reported it twice but there was no apparent attempt to fix. I ended up with B.O. daily. Drink prices excessive. AUD26 for a Hendriks Gin. Never again.
Reception staff and cleaning staff were outstanding. Restaurant staff were very good too. Room and room amenities were very adequate for this type of hotel. Great location close to beaches restaurants and shops. Free car parking also a benefit.
Hotel was run down , had problems with balcony door not shutting , safe was out of order , Air conditioner broke down . All was fixed after a couple of days . Breakfast was average , but lunch and dinner at hotel restaurants was good . Noumea is very expensive , hotel staff were very helpful but did not get out of there way to offer advice . Could not exchange Money when needed as hotel ran out of cash . Hotel is OK but needs updating .
Had a very disappointing 4 night stay here. Check in time was delayed for 40 minutes and we were just made to sit in the lobby. When we got to check in the room was full of heavy bleach smell which gave us a headache, asked to have the rooms changed but wasn't possible! There is also a housekeeping problem. We came back one evening around 6:30pm and our rooms were not cleaned no towels replaced. The facilities are very very old and run down. The toilet bowl sank down when we sat on them making squeaky noise. It felt like it will collapse! The bathroom wood was so old it was coming apart and brown water leaked from it every time we had a shower which was disgusting. The hotel needs a facility upgrade and better management. Pros: good location, generally helpful reception staff, has kitchen facilities
This was our third visit to Noumea, in 3 years, roughly a year apart. We requested 1 brm Lagoon view on high floor. We were given #1114 a cnr suite, still with great views but not the room we had requested which was from 14 th floor up and a #14 which has direct views, the largest patio as bedroom and lounge open there, nothing beats waking up to lagoon view! It also had largest bathroom and separate WC. The #13 type room has tiny ensuite, 1mtr x 2mtr Includes WC ! While the rooms were serviced daily by cheerful staff and we were made to feel welcome, when we asked for a #13 type suite just told ‘not available’ however, the 2nd day into our 7 day stay, next to us, a #13 became empty and stayed that way! We booked 10 months in advance so we’re disappointed! The positives? Lovely pool area and well equipped kitchen.
