Waterfront Lodge has truly very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was really nice with high ceiling and our own balcony! Very clean, good atmosphere and nice view of the ocean. There is also a restaurant downstairs and the food and service is amazing. We had a chance to meet the owners and heard that the artwork on the walls... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, with one exception - it was very noisy at night and its no fault of the hotel owners. There's a nightclub across the road that has very little sound proofing, so we were kept up until 11.30pm when the club was in business. Talk about booming bass and sub-woofer. We had a road...

A haven of sanity and quality in a beautiful location. The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, we felt safe and secure. A short walk to the Kings Palace and the town centre, and a lovely deck with a sea view.

We stayed here for 7 nights. We were picked up at the airport and had a very pleasant drive to the hotel. We checked in and quickly set out to find something to eat. We recieved a complimentary wifi voucher on arrival. It was quite late and most places shut at 11.30 on Saturday so we made our way across... More

We stayed here for 1 short night due to our flight being cancelled to another island. We stayed in a waterfront view room. Each waterfront view room has a nice roomy balcony overlooking Vuna Road. It's nice to see the morning go by from the balcony. The hotel itself is nice and well kept. Our room was clean however a... More

Stayed for two nights the room was spotless & the staff very friendly & helpful. They picked us up from the airport & dropped us back when the time came. Nothing was to much trouble for them. The restaurant had a good choice of meals. A good stopping off point before travelling onto other islands.

Great location - opposite the fish markets & harbour but walking distance to town. Staff very friendly & helpful. The only negative was that the shower head was pretty clogged up due to the hard water conditions. Would definitely stay there again though.

I had the pleasure of spending my days in Tonga at the Waterfront and I can honestly say I never wanted to leave. Not only were my accommodations more than I anticipated the entire staff at the Waterfront treated me and the other guests like family. No need was too great for them to accommodate and they did it with... More
