This place is a disgrace - we didn't expect much except the basics and they were so bad and was falsely advertised. No pick up from the airport, bed sheets filthy showers useless no flushing toilet, no running water, rubbish all over the place and felt very unsafe. Beach was full of glass - no breakfest or wifi as advertised.... More

2 friends and I just returned from a week in Tonga. Spent our first night here. Firstly, owner would not pick up from airport so had to pay $80 taxi. Second, accommodation we had paid for- roof had caved and floor very damp, everything inside was wet. Owner made us pay quite a bit extra to stay in a different... More

We stayed in this resort for 20 days with our friends and we had a very good time. As already written, this resort is not suitable for families, but for young, active people. It is the cheapest option directly by the sea and the beach is really beautiful there. We stayed in one of the bungalows with toilet and shower.... More

We booked not expecting too much as we had taken the budget option (where else can you stay on the beach at that price?), but even so the state of the amenities could have been a lot better. The beach was awesome and there was a pool table, ping pong table, volleyball net, basketball net, but the beach chairs need... More

I brushed aside the bad reviews on tripadvisor and went anyway too, thinking maybe it had improved....or people were being picky... Was not expecting much at the price we paid but in my opinion there is a clear difference between rustic and clean. Booked a beach hut 3 months in advance, got all the confirmations, turned up and found there... More

I liked Otuhaka, but it wasn't perfect and I wasn't expecting it to be. I backpacked with two other friends and when we arrived we were the only ones there. We got the large apartment that is above the family home and the room was great. It had character! The kettle sparked and died when we plugged it in, the... More

My husband and I stayed at Otuhaka for a surf trip with friends. The rooms aren't flash but are all you need for a relaxed trip to Tonga. The resort is managed by a wonderful family, who made our stay so enjoyable. The food was delicious- the fish burgers were our favourite. Beautiful beach! Good waves! Very relaxing!

This was the ideal place for us. 'Otuhaka provided great value for money, the setting was beautiful, an ideal place to relax and unwind. The owners (Dan & his wife) are really friendly and happy to help, so don't be shy to ask if you need anything.

Otuhaka is located on the most beautiful swimming/ snorkelling/ chilling out/ walking beach on Tongatapu. We spent 8 nights there and had a wonderful holiday. Before you go though, consider some challenges of staying there. The resort is pretty run-down, probably unrenovated/ revamped for about 20 years. The matresses are uncomfortable (with holes) and the sheets old and scratchy. The... More
