Stayed here for 4 nights in September 2014 after staying at Fafa Island in March for a similar trip where I had to be in town most days. Room I had was the 'premium' room ocean view with a enormous balcony (overtop of the vehicle drive-thru) on the front of it. But a bit weird as once you step 4... More

The Emerald is rather typical of the Chinese hotels found in many places in the Pacific. It is modern in design and quite spacious, but quite shoddy construction and not too well maintained. I had a room with an oblique view of the sea, and the location right on the beach near the centre of town is ideal for the... More

Very spacious, tidy room. Comfortable bed and great view if you are on the seaside. Aircon working but couldn't get the TV to go which didn't bother me. Room Wifi was only hit & miss but you can get free interest downstairs in reception. Very warm welcome at reception and Fiona who was on the desk for my entire stay... More

The pilot of our Real Tonga MA 60 flight was sick, so the airline put us up here for two nights. We had a room with a sea view. It was large, spacious and well appointed. We had a king bed that was very firm (as I like it). The restaurant served good Chinese food albeit it was all very... More

Having stayed in Nuku'alofa before, I wasn't expecting high quality accommodation. However, my stay at the Emerald Hotel was above expectations. The room was large and clean and the interior, fittings, television, bathroom, etc, were modern. Internet was running well whilst I was there which is rare in Tonga. I found the staff to be very friendly and obliging. I... More

I have stayed at a number of places in Nuku'Alofa whilst working in Tonga and Emerald is the place I go back to you. Great location, rooms, staff and restaurant. Very close to the centre of Nuku'Alofa. Free wifi, good bathrooms and big rooms are some of the features you will enjoy, I don't have anything bad to say!

Stayed for a night on a work trip to Tonga.. Nice big airy rooms... the TV was small with Digicel transmission.. it was fine.. The major grips were cleanliness. Used, slimy and dripping soap in not a great start in the bathroom.. unfortunately did not get much better.. would probably stay there again- as such a good location...

Our family really enjoyed our 3 day stay at the Emerald. It was centrally located. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had a seaview room and the views were beautiful. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We had dinner at the restaurant which was also delicious.

Having stayed at or looked at most of the hotels in Nuku’alofa, I can say this place has some of the best rooms in the capital. They’re spacious, comfortable and well-appointed with flatscreen TVs, free wi-fi, and big showers with good water pressure (though the tile grouting could do with a scrub). Service is good, and the central location unbeatable.... More
