We stayed at the Scenic Hotel when we were in transit to Ha’apai. Whilst we’d hoped for a slightly longer stay, our early morning flight was brought forward so we had less time there than originally planned. ~The Service~ We landed at 2am in the morning and we had a lovely smiling, welcoming gentleman come and pick us up. It... More

Stayed overnight on way to Ha'apai. Used free transfers from/to hotel. Very helpful and welcoming staff. Spacious room was clean and comfortable - firm mattress, but slept well. Nice grounds and pool (not used - bit cold in July). Got around the isolation problem by hiring a taxi for 2 half day tours of the island - TOP120 for 3... More

We stayed at the Scenic for one night as it was close to the airport. The bed had springs almost coming through the mattress which made for an uncomfortable nights sleep. Also our room on the ground floor seemed to have every toilet flush, shower noise in the wall of the bathroom. We also had no hot water for our... More

We stayed at this Scenic during the King's Coronation and almost all of the foreign dignitaries stayed here. You will not find a nicer hotel in Tonga at this point in time. Having said that, the rooms are probably equal to a Best Western in quality. The positives: The staff are all friendly and willing to help you in any... More

Had a night here before we flew out to Vavau. Before our arrival I was emailed by them to ask if we would like to be collected from our incoming flight. They were there waiting for us and within five minutes we were at the hotel. The hotel service was great and although the bar and restaurant had closed for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and the staff and leadership are excellent. The pool area is top class and the restaurant food and staff are both great. However, the WiFi service is a major disappointment - compared to elsewhere in Tonga (so no excuse). I had to pay $10 (Tonga) for 100MB 'download' and $20 for 200MB download (i.e a... More

Saw a trip advisor sign in the 'office' and was shocked. Must have been family that rated this place because it was the worst place ever. They entertained us and provided fresh cut up bananas, coconut and melon but not a place for anyone with a compromised immune system.

Great place to rest after my log flight from San Francisco. Nice, clean room with lovely amenities - shampoo and lotion smelled great. The pool was beautiful and empty. It felt like our own personal pool. Wifi was not great and was expensive after the initial five minutes free. Food was decent in the restaurant.

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
