I stayed at Tongan Beach Resort in August 2015 and it was a truly wonderful experience. I visited with two friends and we really felt as though we were in paradise. We had not originally planned to stay at the resort, but having visited pretty much daily (it is open to people who are not staying), we decided to spend... More

Was booked in to stay as a family but unfortunately due to medical emergency had to cancel our bookings for our Tongan holiday 3 months before travel. All our flights and all other locations were refunded EXCEPT AUD$864 was billed to my VISA card that I had used to hold the room. I spoke to Moa from Tongan who told... More

I stayed at Tongan Beach Resort in August 2015. It was a magical experience. The atmosphere is tranquil and the surrounding scenery is truly idyllic. I spent my days in Tonga, relaxing on the beach or by the pool, making use of snorkelling or canoeing equipment, browsing through the extensive library of holiday reads or biking around the nearby islands....

I cannot believe my eyes reading the review below me. I stayed with two other female friends at Tongan Beach Resort for three nights and visited multiple other times in my trip to Vavau and every single time my experience was PERFECT. The beach is beautiful with the option of relaxing on a sun lounger or on the Jetty, there... More

I booked the Tongan Beach Resort after checking the pictures of their website : thetongan.com . The beach was looking awsome but when i arrived at the hotel i realized i have been scammed by photoshopped pictures which are very far from reality. The sandy beach in the pictures is in fact composed of rough sand and coral gravels :... More

You can visit the beach here for a day out, and I would definitely recommend it! You need to buy a drink at the bar (which is fairly reasonable) to use the beach. We were lucky enough to see whales passing by as we lay on the deck chairs one day as it's an area where they commonly swim through.

Pleasant hotel. Rooms were clean. One half of the double bed was a bit worn out though. Stayed for four nights and went out daily for whale swimming tours. Decent food and reasonable specials/selections. Very nice service. You can swim from the beach and there is some snorkeling. Outdoor pool as well. Free wi-fi in common area (though slow).

The staff is accomodating in every respect, rooms are spacious, clean and well-appointed. The open-air restaurant has excellent food and service. Anything one needed was immediately taken care of, including directions to the Sunday church service where the singing is absolutely amazing (just up the hill from the resort), a ride into town and to Taste of Tonga, a must-do...

What makes a good holiday is the people and the Tongan Beach Resort is full of lovely people who take pride in looking after you. This is not 5 star accommodation but that's not what you go to Neiafu for. There were a few problems with the room, the air conditioner never worked but the room was serviced every day.... More
