Great Stay
Fantastic stay. very nice beach.....swim, snorkel right from hotel. The good: Location - I would rather stay at Vakaloa (30+ minutes from Nuku'alofa than the other way around. Beachfront - Sloped beach.... and coral, but sandy (crushed coral).... can walk barefoot Kayak - They were free to borrow Snorkeling - Free snorkel gear. You could see some fish right out front....but a great spot about a ten minute walk up the beach. Bicycle - Free bicycle to cruise around the area. Accommodations - Great room with fridge, ample space and a killer view of the ocean, beach and surf break Food - The meals were good Staff - The staff were friendly and very helpful The bad: Dining - Other than the resort, there are not any places nearby to dine. This was not an issue for us as the food was good and only stayed a few days. The in-between: Internet - The coverage was only by front desk and dining room and not in rooms and was not all that great....... but you are in Tonga, on a beach, in a beautiful area....go enjoy the surroundings and this magical location Continental Breakfast - Toast, fruit, cereal, instant coffee, tea. It was fine but not amazing Cost to get there from airport - It was a little over $30 (US) to get there and a little over $15 (US) to get to Nuku'alofa Staying in the Ha'atafu region (Northwest peninsula) of Tongatapu (the main island) was a better decision for us than staying in Nuku'alofa. Especially loved the beach activities and quiet setting.

The staff and service were excellent. Rooms were very nice and tidy. Originally though, we were booked into the family room with a seaview (room 12) which was great but only problem was that when it rained, water leaked into the room and wet the floor because the windowsills have a design flaw that doesnt allow the water to drain out. I assume rm 12 is the only room with this osdue and I hope they fix it soon. It was our misfortune that it just happened to be raining heavily the day we booked in else on a sunny day the room is perfect. Staff were great in quickly shifting us to room 5 with a garden view once we informed them of the leak. This room was nice as well and had no issues except the air conditioning wasnt working. Luvkily tihey had a massive fan in tbe room that we could use to keep cool. Other than that, this resort was perfect. Highlight is the buffet dinner and cultural show on wednesdays and fridays and buffet lunch sunday. Dinner was delicious and the culture dances and fireshow was great...also loved the live band and music selection.....The complimentary Continental breakfast of toast, cereals, fruits and tea, coffee and juice was nice although I wish they would include 1 hot dish like eggs with it. If you wanted anything hot like eggs, bacon, hash browns, sausages etc, then u have to pay for it. 15 paanga was cheapest hot item. Overall was a good stay.

Perfect Getaway
Amazing! My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The accommodation furnishings are elegant and sturdy. Breakfast is filling and it is a great place to getaway and unwind. A note for those who like to swim at night/early morning, take a torch/battery lamp with you as a light source! Malo Vakaloa
