This hotel has lost a lot of value over the years. Nothing worse than getting in from An international flight at 1am to get a poorly lit room trying to find items in luggage listening to the drip of the ac onto the only chair in the room, stepping into another puddle in the bathroom from a leaking toilet all whilst in a smoking room when you requested non smoking.
I had an average stay here. It was June and maybe shoulder season. I was at the back with no view except three pine trees right up to my terrace, with pigeons cooing all afternnon and evening. It is a good block back from the beach, though there is a little shop, La Coquille, where you can buy groceries. Though beautiful, the pool was in the shade and only had four loungers. It is right beside the sport bar, which has a huge TV of all sport going constantly! The housekeeping was erratic, one day the room wasn't serviced at all, most days I had to ask for towels and toilet paper. The kitchen has minimal supplies. A good gym. No concierge and reception couldnt help that much.
I and my sister stayed at the Ramada and found it very good It is within walking distance to the Beach &Shops of Anse Vata We had a excellent room overlooking the Hippdrome [racecourse] with a balcony and there was alays plenty to see The staff where always helpful changed our room straight away when we where given a double Bed for a room with two singles they called Taxi,s for us when we wanted to go to Supermarket and suggested places to see & do The rooms where clean and extra Coffee etc where available if we asked The only disappointment was the Revolving restaurant with only two choices on menu but staff where attentive and the view wonderful
We were on the 16th floor room 1163 the Apartment was comfortable with large deck outdoor furniture and beautiful sea view. We chose to self cater 6 nights out of 7 and enjoyed grocery shopping at Simply and Casino Supermarkets. Kitchen well appointed with convection combination microwave,dish washer ,two hot plates,fridge/freezer,washer/dryer plus a drying rack to use on the deck. We enjoyed the Parisan breakfast in the Sports Bar a good variety and friendly Staff. The Front desk Staff led by Ugatai were all helpful,smiling and friendly. Close walk to beach,restaurants and to catch the bus.
We stayed here and ended up in the middle of a cyclone Cook which was a first for us, the staff were great and kept us informed at all times.This place is dated but clean and close to the beach,shops,restaurants,supermarkets and public transport, these are all in easy walking distance. The staff here are very friendly and helpful, Anna in the bar was great and gave us information on place's to go and see, she always had a smile on her face and greeted you with a bonjour even if you were just passing through. The staff at reception were very helpful and a big thank you to Stephan for keeping us up to date with the cyclone and sorting out our accommodation when or first lot of flights were cancelled, and when our room was flooded due to the cyclone. Once again thanks for making our stay memorable
Bar in hotel have happy hour so we have large number of groups sitting in the front car park and drink very loud at around 2am ant get enough sleep and the staff are not friendly at all was a good experience but will not do business with them again
We booked an executive suite over Wotif and it was good value.... a bedroom for the kids and one for us, with king bed (pity there was no lock on the door though!). The best attribute was that it was spacious, with large lounge and generous balcony, plus a small kitchen. Though we booked a racecourse ('Lagoon') view got a suite on the side so we actually had partial views inland and out to sea. The place need some serious maintenance (balcony door didn't lock, peeling paint etc) and there a few weird things....like the toilet... no fan and no window and in the centre of the suite so if you are going to leave a smell everyone will know about it (and they did). And the toilet paper. Why, why, why do you have to pivot 270 degrees to access it! (I've even included a photo of it). Just relocate the roll holder please! Functional kitchen, but no bread knife (come on, this is France!) or tea-towels, only basic cutlery. Watch your head doing the dishes (which is probably why the cleaners don't do them). In house restaurants: see my separate review of the Sports Bar (terrible) and the revolving restaurant was fun for the kids because it revolved (!) though the food (especially the desserts) was average. There are better locations in Anse Vata, closer to the beach and the action, but for a family of 4 this was an OK place to base yourself .... if you can get a reasonably priced deal.
Helpfull staff who are very friendly, very patient and very informative. A very relaxed atmosphere. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk away from the beach, shops and resturants. The hotel was clean, neat and quiet. The room was serviced twice during our 7 night stay which was good, however the consumables in the bathroom didnt get restocked. This was ok with us, we would ask reception on our way back from touring Noumea for the day. The hotel sports bar is well stocked with drinks and a selection of meals. The breakfast was geat aswell. The revolving resturant has great views, with a very limited menu for lunch. We did not have a booking and where able to be easily seated. The television had 22 channels, four of them from Australian which was fantastic. Thumbs up. The rooms have a split system air conditioner which will only work when you insert the room key into the slot next to the front door, this is ok, but it is very nice to come back to a cool room after a day out. Possible improvement required. Thankyou Ramada Hotel and Suites Noumea for having us.
This hotel is set on the Anse Vata side of the island, the views are overlooking the race course our the sea, we booked the Anse Vata view which gave us a large balcony and views to both the bay and the racecourse. The room was large, with a very comfortable separate bedroom which leads on to the ensuite bathroom, this is a little small and has a bath and shower. The lounge area was large and had a dining table and chairs, the kitchen is proportional and had convection microwave oven. I did find myself bumping my head on the extractor fan when I was washing dishes etc. outside there was a huge balcony with an outdoor setting, it was a little old and battered but served it purpose. The are two air cons one in the bedroom and one in the lounge, we found these a little hit and miss, I don't know what it was but we would wake up cold and again late sweating, might be my age LoL! The TV did not work properly, someone had set a parental lock on the channels but it never bothered us as we did none want to sit and watch TV anyway. Cleaning was a bit hit and miss each day, but there was a strike on one day which may have messed up the sequence, management delivered fresh towels and kept us informed which was very nice. Being on the Western side of this round building meant we had the best sunsets, if you get to stay here try and ask for rooms on this side. Downstairs there is a nice little pool, with a beach / sand set up, the sports bar overlooks the pool and this was a beat place to be on Paddies Night, great band on and very popular place to have a drink and a feed. During the day getting served seemed to be an issue, one lady looked like she was on duty and the other about to come on duty, but even though I had to go to the bar the second lady never served me even though she was behind the bar, with only me standing there, they changed shifts I presume and them she served me. The reception was fantastic, these guys really stood out, there was always someone who could speak English, they made a few calls to Aircalin for us and above everything else they came up with solutions for a broken Rod Holder to enable me to fly back home and not damage my fishing rods, well done guys. Something to note about the local area around the hotel, you have to follow the road at the back of the hotel (racecourse side) to get to the beach so only a short walk, the best drinking hole was LEntrave, good prices, great selection, but we found the food on this side of the island very boring, with the exception of LeRoof. If you turn right you will pass a wine shop, they have some good wines. There are two shops to purchase milk etc, and it does not matter which way you walk there is one each way. This is a good place to stay, great views, and a very comfortable walk to the best places to eat and drink around the bay at Citron Bay. Enjoy.
I had to fly in and out from Vanuatu for a sales trip, and Ramada Noumea proved to be a very pleasant experience throughout. Airport transfers were on time and very comfortable. Air con on point! :D The 1 bedroom apartment I stayed in offered quite a stunning view, with full facilities and comfort. Lovely service at the reception, and a comfy lobby to spend any waiting time. The Sports Bar makes for a great breakfast lounge, and a relaxing area for catching up with work colleagues. I'd suggest they invest in some mosquito repellent products however, as I donated a tad too much during my visits :) I only dined for breakfast and the occasional lunch, but I was very pleased with my experiences. They have a lovely pool right ahead of the bar, but regretfully I didn't bring my togs. So it was a miss on this occasion. We had a pleasure of meeting some of the management during our dining experiences, who were quite welcoming. I'd thoroughly recommend staying here, and wish to thank The Ramada once again for the kind room upgrade that was provided. It was deeply appreciated. Until next time!
