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.

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!
