We felt like we were staying with family - who were all Tongan aside from Steve - and slept soundly from dusk to dawn in our private pandanus fale. Moana said they do "relax" really well and she was right. Being included in a massive family feast featuring roast pig was humbling. No wonder people book in advance to stay... More

This place is perfect for families with young (6 and under) children. It is not a "resort" as we understand it generally, really more like someone's family compound by the beach, with the whole extended family, i.e the grand-parents, children and grand-children, all living at the resort. So, if the screams and cries of a dozen or so young kids... More

Pros: Service is out of this world. They truly care if you have a great time. In fact, they even booked a whale watching tour for us with a few hours notice. Taxi service to and from airport was great, no hiccups. Food was among the best we have had anywhere in the south pacific. Plenty to go around. Amazing... More

We recently spent a week at HA'atafu. A fantastic place to just lie back and relax and watch the whales cruise past the reef. My husband enjoyed an exciting fishing trip landing several very large tuna. Moana and Hola are really beautiful people. They made us feel as if we had been there for ever. The rooms are spotlessly clean... More

The resort was located on a beautiful long white sandy beach on the edge of a lagoon with a reef close by. The snorkelling was great with a good variety of fish in clear water. Waves would break over the reef providing opportunities for surfers, so it was easy to kick back and watch the surfers working the waves. We... More

We had a wonderful time! We stayed a week, our party was 3 families, each with two adults and two kids. The fales (rooms) we stayed in are basic but to us, very comfortable. The communal toilets/shower are only a short walk from all fales. There are also some fales that have own toilet/shower facilities but we didn't stay in... More
