We have visited Tonga countless times through business, and have stayed at Little Italy before, but this time we were disappointed. The room had a magnificent view, but it was only set up for one guest, and was so small you could only get around one side of the bed. We did ask the receptionist for another towel, glass etc...

Found the staffs really friendly. They not only looked after me on my business trip but at the same time looked after my family well. the only remark is the non opening of the resturants at lunch time. During these times families will need to travel to town for food. services is really good and looked upon.

Very clean room. Nice sea view. Occidental standard hotel. We stayed there for two nights (saturday/sunday) waiting our flight to another island. It was almost the only place open on Sunday in Tongatapu for dinner. (the reason why we choose this hotel). Be aware they don't serve cooked breakfast on Sunday morning. The employees were nice even if nobody helped... More

The food was great, and most importantly it was what you expect. By that I mean, you can count on getting what you imagine you'll get when you order something like bolognese. It comes out looking and tasting like something your used to, not some attempt at it. Everyone was very nice and the view is pretty impressive being that... More

Overall an excellent little hotel. The room was clean and comfortable with a good size bed and air conditioning.The internet had a 500 MB limit which is not ideal when travelling on business as I needed to access emails and documents online. Overall it was a good stay the free buffet breakfast was excellent and the downstairs restaurant was great,... More

Disappointed not to be able to get a room with a balcony, our room looked out onto a pretty rough house with the sounds of pigs rooting around and dogs barking in the night. The room itself was OK but one with a view and balcony would have been much nicer especially when you are staying for nearly a week.... More

From booking online and email special requests Little Italy performs admirably and more. With an excellent indoor / outdoor restaurant, swimming pool, great sea view vista and outstanding service this stopover is a winner ! There are not so many choices in this part of the world and Little Italy is a gem!
