The room (No. 248) was ocean view. and I appreciate the extension of check out time until 13.30 without extra. but there were some problems to be improved as shown below. 1. There was no bath tub. All rooms don't furnish it. 2. There was no elevator (even there were... More

We booked 3 months in advance, the complementary taxi from the airport was 20 minutes late. We were the last people waiting at the airport at 8pm. The taxi took us without warning to another of the owners different hotels, the Meida, because there was apparently no room. We were all 4 packed into one room. Unpleasant & embarrassing standoff...

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.
