After our first two hotels this place was a godsend....so much so we stayed an extra night. Located on a beautiful sandy beach which offered a terrific beach swimming especially at high tide. Our room was large, clean and well ventilated. The restaurant offered a limited but adequate menu and the bar well stocked with a selection of beer and wine. The staff were absolutely wonderful and eager to please. The Wednesday night cultural show and buffet were good value with the vast majority of the audience local Tongans

The hotel is nice. It is far from everywhere so it is necessary to rent a car to stay there and tour the island. Most of the restaurants are in the city, so you have to travel nearly 20km to any of them. The trip is 30 min approx, because of the speed limit. But it is ok, not many cars around, outside the capital, and inside the capital, not a big traffic. No traffic lights. Plenty of parking places and FOR FREE. The room lacks a wardrobe with hangers. It is not very understandable where people hang their clothes here. A chain lock from inside the room is also necessary. The rest of the things that were absent were immediately provided by the management who are very responsible and caring. The continental breakfast is too basic. No fresh juices. They are a sort of made with some powder, very bad. Fruits are ok, some pineapple, watermelon and papaya. Basic cereals and milk. The rest is to be charged. There are many parties and weddings in the hotel, so when they happen, forget to take a nap as the music goes rampant through the whole hotel.

First it started off a bit rocky as the internet was down for about a week before our arrival and therefore the resort didn't get our reservation. But they truly made up for it. It was off season so there were not many guests. But the ones that were there were looked after. The place is really nice, right next to the beach, and really well maintained. The owners take good care of it. The beach is nice and clean and snorkeling is possible just a couple of meters into the water. Good for kids and beginners. The menu is not extensive but got everything you need. Twice a week there is a buffet with performance which I can recommend to go to. The buffet is big and every item is delicious. The staff are very helpful and lovely. Recommendations where to go and what to do. It's also possible to hire a car straight from the resort, which saves extra hassle. I would definitely stay there again.

Visited Tonga late Jan and spent 5 nights @ Tanoa and booked 2 nights here to unwind. We were very surprised by the friendliness & warmth hospitality we received by owners John, Marion & their fabulous team. From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome and I requested for us to move to the Deluxe Family room with the semi ocean view and they were more than happy to oblige. We absolutely loved Vakaloa & my kids enjoyed swimming, kayaking daily while I just relaxed & enjoyed the peace & tranquility setting of the resort. The Kayaks are free to use by guests. Breakfast was continental & I loved the fresh local fruits served. Had my nephew stay with us who I needed to pay for due to it being unplanned but the owners were so kind not to charge for his stay & breakfast which was very generous of them. I’m definitely returning back to Vakaloa every time I visit Tonga and I can now call it my *home away from home* The hospitality was somewhat different from the 4star Tanoa Hotel. Vakaloa Staff were every attentive & greeted us daily with a smile and the warmth Tongan hospitality. Thank you John & Marian and I look forward to staying there again for my birthday weekend in July😁
