We were told to go to Fifita's as its affordable and gives a chance to experience true Tongan Island life. The lady told us she was full and only had the most expensive room left. Cost, $75. the room was dark, dirty (we asked her to clean an extra time, but the concept of clean was vague), full of cobwebs and small spiders.
We agreed to stay and headed to Mariners to celibrate our arrival at Ha' apai. When we returned we found a MASSIVE SPIDER on the wall. Serious, this was not one you pick up and swoop out. I emptied a can of mortein on it. I sometimes still see it crawling over our pillow towarths us. Thank god we had a mosquito net in the room, it gave us a small sense of safety.
the bed appeared to be rock hard, also not level, my girlfriend kept bumping on to me. At five in the morning our upstairs neighbours started to jump around their room (some family with kids living there) and kept us awake for the rest of the night.
Next morning we didn't even bother to get breakfast. This place was to dirty to even think of food. We payed the lady $50 dollar and checked out. The place wasn't full, there was no one there. And I understand why... the rest of our stay in Ha' apai was awesome. And honoustly? Our stay at Fifita Is unforgettable.
