My husband and I stayed here for four nights. We got the free shuttle from the airport (only a two minute drive). Our room was a very clean, standard hotel room with Queen bed, desk and chair, large flat screen tv, small fridge, tea and coffee facilities. The bathroom had a shower over the bath, sink and toilet. The bed... More

This hotel is of a good standard, clean and comfortable but really only suited to a transit stop. Unfortunately we were booked in for 5 nights and were forced to hire a car to get around. It is nowhere near a beach although it does have a nice pool. The Island is quite large and the local bus service does... More

The hotel needs to provide a shuttle service into nuku'alofa. The 5% credit card loading is steep and the wifi left a lot to be desired. However the staff were excellent the rooms were pretty adequate and the pool area was very nice and relaxing. Very close to the airport but no noise from the aircraft. The resteruant provided reasonable... More

We stopped at this hotel for lunch and a swim whilst waiting for a connecting flight to Vava'u. The management were excellent and as there were 8 of us they provided us with free transfers to and from the airport. We also stayed for a night on our return from Vava'u while waiting to catch our return flight home. The... More

This hotel is situated right next to Tongatapu airport and is therefore excellent for a stopover. I was there for nine nights as I was working in Fuku'aloha. It may be difficult to believe that there are traffic jams in Tonga, but in the morning and evening, it was taking up to an hour to travel to and from the... More

Arrived here late afternoon and went to room where air conditioning unit was leaking water all over the floor. Contacted reception and they sent an engineer up straight away and he fixed the problem. Staff very friendly.

I have been to the Scenic numerous times and have always had a great experience, the staff are attentive and the food is delicious (their burger buns are made on site, so they are very fresh). It's nice to have a place away from town where locals like myself, can enjoy some good quality service.
