There was plenty to do to keep us all of various ages occupied and entertained. accommodations are simple but very clean and very comfortable beds! Bathrooms close by as well. We loved easy access to snorkeling and the safety of lagoon for swimming. Rented a car from resort for... 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

We spent a week at this resort and stayed in a Fale. The staff were genuine, honest and friendly people who made the time to chat and share about the Tongan culture. We loved several things about our stay but 4 things that stood out were the clean beach 1 minutes walk from our Fale, (where we snorkeled each day),... More

This place was great, we travelled with our 3 year-old and 6 month old and we all had a ball. It seems to be able to cater for all levels, from families like us, to surfing couples and backpackers alike. This is probably due to the laid-back, friendly atmosphere which emanates from the staff as well as the legendary food... More

If you are looking for a wonderful place to snorkel, swim, surf, kayak, relax, eat amazing fresh food and meet different people, don't look any further. We recently spent a week at Ha'atafu Beach Resort and from the moment we booked to the moment we left, Moana, Hola and Steve provided great hospitality. We stayed in one of premium fales... More

My wife and I recently visited on our honeymoon and were blown away by Moana and Hola's hospitality (along with the rest of the very welcoming staff!). Tonga is raw beauty and is best enjoyed by those who enjoy the perfect balance of rest and adventure. My dad's family is originally from Tonga so we had relatives showing us around... More

Malo 'aupito Moana and Hola for making our stay so enjoyable. Your genuine warmth and ability to relate to your guests was just the start of a great experience at Ha'atafu. A Tongan style tropical paradise with all the comforts of a really well run guest house. Nothing to do but relax and enjoy the beach, surfing, kayaking, snorkelling, fishing... More

Can't thank Hola and Moana enough for a great holiday. This was the first time we had taken our kids away (5) & (1), and I couldn't think of a better place to stay. The resort was on a perfect spot right on the beach, with kayaks and snorkeling gear available, with some a great variety of fish 5 meters... More

If you are traveling to Tonga this is the place to stay. Moana, Hola and their entire family are kind and generous human beings, providing a laid back, family style resort experience.
