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...

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
