The Black Pearl Suites hotel is very clean & our room was comfortable & of a normal size hotel room, if you want a big room you have to get a bigger suite. We never had any problems with hot water & our room was attended each day with fresh towels, we asked for a kettle for our room, but... More

Hotel seems like an old house that has been converted into a hotel. Rooms felt like I was staying at my great grandmother's house! old furniture, box tv, window unit AC (which we were grateful we had!). Water in shower was very, very low flow with variable temperatures (rapidly cycling between hot and cold). Had breakfast (fresh fruit, cereals, coffee)... More

We just spent a week at the black pearl, after hearing so much about it we thought it would be a good place to spend our last week on Tonga after a few years working here. Well it did not start well, couldn't check in when we organised even though we had confirmed the week before, during our stay, service... More

We stayed at the Black Pearl on our first night in Tonga. The staff was helpful and very kind but that was it. On arrival the bed for our son had not been installed (we did not have any space to move once installed), the plugs for the fans had been twisted to fit Tonga, the bathroom was mouldy and... More

A first time trip to Tonga and our hotel was nestled in quite close to town which was within walking distance. Neat decor, large colonial building with excellent views to the ocean and a warm ocean breeze to cool of in when lounging on the open balcony. the rooms were very nice though the plumbing needed upgrading and the lounge/bar/dining...

If I paid, anywhere else in the world, what I paid for a night's stay at The Black Pearl and got the same standard of room, I'd be pretty cranky. Objectively, the room I had was ...not good. Cramped, deeply ugly decor, mouldy bathroom with reluctant hot water. But the bed was comfortable, staff were genuinely lovely and the food... More

Only a short (20 min) walk into the main town along a picturesque beach front promenade. All the staff and driver Daniel were great and very helpful with organising our activities. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we just loved sitting out on the front verandah having a cocktail and enjoying the ocean views. Overall, it was a very... More

We had a few issues that were resolved in friendly manner on Tongan time. the night watch person who was also the tv technician came in to fix the tv so that we could watch the rugby. He was extremely personable. The room was basic but met our needs.

We stayed at the Black Pearl upon our arrival to Tonga and it could not have been a better introduction. The staff were wonderful, always ready to help and always smiling, we really felt like a part of the family by the time we left. The rooms are spacious and clean with high ceilings and comfortable beds. The dining room... More
