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.

A great welcome to the Friendly Islands, exceptional service throughout our stay, beautiful landscape and swimming pool. Captivating surroundings, and situated in close proximity to airport and landmarks in the south of Tonga, Mapu'a a Vaea Blowholes and Oholei & Hina cave.

This hotel is lovely to look at and the staff are friendly and although I haven't stayed overnight here, I have done the transfer stopover in the lobby. For T$20, you can sit in the lobby, use the pool and showers, eat in the restaurant while waiting for your flight - either domestic or international. I had 3 hours to... More

Very convenient to the airport. Love the free transfers to and from the airport. Very handy when flights arrive very early in the morning. Quite comfortable. Nice decor. Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for your review after staying at Scenic Hotel Tonga. We are indeed very handy to the airport and ideal for a stopover between flights. We are also great for longer stays also with a great swimming pool and food and beverage outlets so maybe next time stay a little longer :-). Regards Graeme Horsley General Manager More

We treated ourselves to the Scenic Hotel on our last day/night in Tonga. Loved the gorgeous pool (all to ourselves!), king sized bed, relaxed drinks at the bar, good food at the restaurant and friendly, efficient staff. It's a good mid-way base to see Tongatapu sights on the west (blow holes and natural land bridge) and east (tombs and trilithon)... More
