We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Le Surf over Christmas 2013. The (lagoon view) room was exceptionally clean and maintained so. The bathroom was clean and odour-free.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and appeared to speak excellent English, though I mainly spoke French with them. They made several taxi and "navette" (airport minibus) bookings for us perfectly.
We found breakfast very satisfactory, it's not what you would get in a Paris hotel, but for Noumea it was a good French Continental spread with nice fresh tropical fruit.
The hotel and its decor are a little "faded" but we found that this added to the hotel's charm. The historic photos and carvings all around are actually quite interesting. They had also done a beautiful job with Christmas decorations. Also the bedrooms had possibly been renovated because the decor there seemed very fresh and contemporary.
I chose the Hotel Le Surf because it was cheap and appeared to have an excellent location (walking distance from the Baie de Citrons, but also facing the main southern beach and walkable to the Hilton/tourist shop complex). This turned out to be a really great choice.
As an older couple we stayed at the hotel for nearly two weeks. It suited our purposes very well as was on main transport route, close to local shops and restaurants. The room was modern and well appointed with a balcony for sitting outside. French and Australian TV channels. We would definitely stay there again.
Would have liked to had access to the restaurant at night. Had a disaster with washing my clothes . There needs to be explicit instructions in English to operate the washing machines. It took nearly 4 hours which was far too long. Apart from this a very pleasant stay. Hotel was not aware I had already paid Expedia and charged me again. Lucky I had my confirmation with Paid in Full on it.
Only there for 3 nights and very much enjoyed the apartment living. The couch was not designed for comfort, but this was the only negative. Love the location with a short stroll to the beach, cafes and shops. Local transport close and convenient. Warning! Use the shuttle and bus service too and from airport.
The hotel has a very good place, on the most beautiful bay of Noumea : Anse Vata. The bus stop is just at the front of the hotel. A lot of shops and restaurants around (and tourism /information point). The people at the reception are very relevant, welcoming and kind. The room are comfy and clean. So very good hotel !
I have spent a very good stay here. Just one thing is not like on the photo, is the swimming pool, it is small, not huge like on the photos but enough, i was not here for the swimming pool ;)
The hotel has an excellent position in Anse Vata and is within walking distance of many restaurants, bars and the beach. The hotel itself is in good condition and modern. The only thing I can mention is the room itself is a little dated. Felt very safe and the staff were excellent .
