Stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks whilst on business. It is one of the better hotels in the Tongan capital. The rooms are large and they are maintained daily and there is a Chinese restaurant in the hotel. It unfortunately does not have any 'western' choices on the menu. It is close to the centre of town and you... More

The Emerald is a Chinese restaurant. It is so good that I ate there 4 days out of the 8 I was in nuku'alofa Tonga! There are inexpensive wines to complement the meal as well as the delicious Chinese tea. I enjoyed the pork fried rice; the chicken chop suey; the stir fry... EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS! And inexpensive! Don't leave... More

Great friendly staff in reception, very helpful when anything needed to be done. The room could use a little maintenance and a deep clean. Air conditioning was very effective though. Restaurant offers Chinese only menu. The included continental breakfast includes fruits like banana, water melon and papaya. Bread for toasting as well as cornflakes and some juices. Some cafes in...

We spent two weeks in Tonga and this was my home. The manager, George, and his staff made us feel welcome and looked after us well. Everything worked smoothly. Rooms were impeccably clean. Would stay there every time.

Anyone who knows Chinese Business Hotels either in the South Pacific or elsewhere will be familiar with this model. This is not a bad one. Friendly and helpful staff, good size rooms, large bed, reasonably clean and tidy. Good sea view from my room which also had a rather large and bizarre balcony over the car porch at the front...

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
