When there's a power outage, they run an electric generator, which makes and extremely awful noise. And when there's not, you have the noise of the AC, which we could not turn off. Wi-Fi does not work properly. It disconnects all the time and when it connects there's no data. At the dorm bathroom there's no lid at the toilet. Unbelievable. And other things are broken there too. The locker did not work either. Other things are OK. Service is very good. there's a bar at the beach and a nice restaurant with terrace. The swimming pool was clean.
Really good staff at what is now the Alotau Bay Hotel. Some of the best smiles in PNG. The rest of the place is average, with the exception of the sunset view, which is terrific. Food was ok, with some reasonably large portions. Recommend if you’re transiting to Tawali.
Simple theme but maintains modern touch to interior design. Good entertainment system. Simple menu but wonderful customer service. Friendly staff who really work to ensure customers' stay is an enjoyable experience. Rooms are beautiful. The apartment suite is efficient and meets requirements.
Me and my friend stayed at AIH for two weeks. It’s a wonderful place, with gorgeous view on the sea and harbour, super calm, safe and central location. We spent a lot of time by the pool which was perfect. The staff was incredible, so helpful and nice we felt at home and would have loved to stay longer. We definitely recommend this place for your stay at Alotau. Thank you again for everything AIH!
Fantastic location ,perfect place ,love to sit on the beach front and enjoy the beauty of the sunset ,the staffs are also very friendly ..Looking for a perfect get way for business or holiday Alotau international is a great place to be .Enjoy.
The location is excellent if you are attending the Kenu and Kundu festival as it is walking distance. The rooms are comfortable with views or glimpses of the sea. The food is average. We had attempted to book through the hotel web site twice with no reply. We then booked three nights through booking.com. When we arrived we were bumped for the first night. they offered to find alternate accommodation or a site shed (see picture below). Eventually after asking to speak to the manager we were offered a room of inferior quality to the one we had booked. The arrogant receptionist made it clear that it was our fault as we had booked through booking.com. We were not given an apology or a refund. We were paying $300 per night.
Spent couple if days in Alotau and stayed at Alotau International. Room is basic, but clean and spacious. Wifi worked ok. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is terrible though. If you want an omelette you will have to fork out an additional 20 K.
For Alotau this is probably the best hotel around in the area. The staff are very friendly & helpful. The rooms are basic (or should I say beach style rooms), yet they are extremely clean. The food was ok and I felt safe whilst staying here, which for me was very important. I would definitely stay here again when next in Alotau, there truly isn't much choice out here ..... Wifi would be an asset, but that will probably happen in time.
I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions now and found the staff to be consistently pleasant, positive and helpful people. They have made me feel welcome and my stays there comfortable. The restaurant staff have been extremely accommodating when it comes to dinner and I have found myself enjoying some of the most delicious food I have eaten in PNG. However, these dishes have not been part of the regular menu which I would rate as consistently mediocre in quality and taste - especially since the departure of Sri Lankan Chef Manoj. Chef Manoj created a delicious crab dish, which Chef Christine has taken to even greater heights. She is very capable and creative and I give her cooking 5 stars! I understand they now have an Indonesian Chef, but alas I have chosen a mother hotel for my next stay in Alotau, however I may return. Things to watch out for are the tiles which run the length of the outside walkway to many of the rooms which become extremely slippery and have already caused trips to the hospital for people who have slipped up. Although this is an obvious health and safety issue, the owners choose to ignore it. It rains a lot in Alautau so beware.…
Apparently I decided to make my tracks back to the popular AIH over the weekend the place is the best and first class. Though most people crowd around the garden bar is too watch NRL most do have moneý to buy rest are there only watch. The GM understands cause most are NRL followers, people undersþands hotel rules n the abide to it. Thank GM. Am impressed with the lookout and it's still best location for the visitors nationally n abroad. Popular Papa's Pizza is everybody's favourite because it so delicious. So if you are thinking of visiting Alotau I bet you Alotau International Hotel is the place to be.
