Little Italy was a good and pleasant find as a place to stay during a recent return visit to Tongatapu. I had been to the restaurant previously but this was my first stay. The rooms are a good size and well cared for. Internet access was okay but the free daily allowance of 250MB will only get you very basic... More

This is a small hotel, with ocean facing rooms. The hotel does not provide food, drink, room cleaning, or any other guest services on Sundays. It is far from any type of store, restaurant, or shopping. While the view from the open, ocean facing doors, was picturesqe, there are other hotels on Tonga that are more conveniently located that provide... More

This is a nice hotel but do not expect the luxury of a Four Seasons or an upscale Hilton. The room and bathrooms are small, but the beds are comfortable. The internet worked well although it was constantly necessary to get a nice user name and password because there is a limit on how much can be downloaded with a... More

Great little hotel. We had a room with a balcony which I would recommend. The food here is amazing - if we could we would have tried everything on the menu. Breakfast was included in our package and there was a good selection. The hotel is in a fairly quiet area but it is only about a 15 minute walk... More

We loved our stay at Little Italy In Tonga!! The staff was there to help you with a smile. The room we had a beautiful theme wall making the room warm and friendly. Breakfast was complimentary in a lovely clean theme restaurant that looked out to the open ocean and lush distant island with a gentle breeze cooling the warm... More

We stayed at little Italy on our way back from Vavau and onto Samoa. It is clean and tidy and has a nice view. Just down the road from the palace and a 10 min walk into town. Meals were fine but not outstanding. This still probably the best on offer in the area

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
