No hot water at night, dingy linens, stinky bathrooms and sub-par service. On top of that a price that you would charge at a downtown Hilton. Stick with the nearby beach resorts and find somewhere better to stay.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We needed to change plans because of Cyclone Ian and they worked tirelessly to make sure everything was in order. It is a... More

I stayed at the "Pua" for a couple of nights last week (1st week Nov2013). When I travel to Vava'u, this is my "go to" hotel. My room was large, clean and well appointed and the view from it was breathtaking! I was on business on this trip, so the location in town was perfect, although when you enter the... More

I've stayed at the Puatakanave some at least 10 times over the past 6 years - on a mix of holiday and business. It is the best and most central accommodation in Vava'u - from here you can get out to the islands to enjoy the extreme and world class hidden beauty of the Vava'u's islands, blue water, coral, fishing,...
