We had a great time at the Wednesday night cultural evening. It was full and the crowd was almost as entertaining as the show. The food was delicious and the Pina Coladas were great. The staff were attentive and friendly.

This place is a gem. It's the people here that's makes the difference, both owners and staff are very nice, attentive and they take really care of you. The rooms are quite basic but large. No air condition, but fans in the ceiling. The location by the beach is very good and you can go snorkelling just outside your doorstep....

Great entertainment. Classy service. Great food. Best poaka. Heaps of fun. The entertainment is old school w old style songs but the show although brief was pure professional fun. It's not 'pure' but it's fun. Great value for $45

Spacious and comfortable rooms, the rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff happy to help out and give travel advice. We even got to attend a wedding and feast ( get in quick before the locals) We liked the snorkeling right out in front of the hotel.

In all the years of visiting Tonga the Vakaloa experience has set the bar high on this visit. There is no need to go anywhere else, we took a group of 29 and stayed at Vakaloa for 7nights, no one wanted to leave Tonga after staying at Vakaloa. John and Marion provide a great Tongan experience at Vakaloa, the best...

We really love this place, we've stayed here three years in a row now. This year we were privileged to stay in the new ocean view fale.

This resort was so warm and friendly. A beautiful young family own and run it and gives you the true essence of the Tongan people. My friend and I think we were the only guests in the resort as it was so quiet but that was perfect for our days of relaxation and blocking out the rest of the world.
