Our short stay in Oct was wonderful! The room was clean and tidy and the air conditioning was working perfectly. Penny and her staff were very helpful during our stay. We would recommend Filamona, since it is surely the best in town!

I moved from the Vaiaku Lagi Hotel to Filamona and it was the best thing I could of done. I totally recommend it. Very friendly staff, spacious aircon rooms upstairs. Delicious food and best of all cold drinks. A very social and wonderful place to stay. Sippy Kana Penny and all your beautiful staff.

Room was basic: no hot water, AC took 30 hours to cool room, kept curtain closed as just a nasty looking shack across the narrow alley. Friendly staff. Breakfast included but was only toast, Wheetabix, and coffee. Other food was good, including weekly buffet dinner. Convenient location, just a few steps from the airstrip.

Stayed at the Filamona for 2.5 weeks for business. The staff were always friendly and happy to accommodate to our requirements. Rooms were of a good standard for Funafuti, kept clean and remained bug/mosquito free. Just remember this is Funafuti not a 5 star tourist resort. The rooms have only basic amenities which the staff service each day (if that's... More

Hi, I was very lucky that my visit happened at the same time than Tuvalu celebrated her Independence day 1.10 and there was plenty of action in the town and Filamona lodge is in the heart of the city. Being there was relaxing and in the talks with the people there was a notion uneasiness of global issues. When visiting... More

Adding to the comments already on Tripadvisor, we'd highly recommend the Filamona Moonlight Lodge. We visited Tuvalu for 5 days on holiday in July 2013 with our two young daughters (4 and 6) and stayed at the Filamona throughout. You're unlikely to be coming to Tuvalu for luxury accommodation, and with the Filamona you won't get it. But what you... More

We've been there in 2010, the pension is one of the few in Tuvalu, so there's not a lot of choises. Rooms are very simple but clean, the place is very noisy cause is in the center and people go to sleep late :-) I've found a friendly staff and very helpfull. Price is good, i hope to come back!
