This hotel is very basic but clean. There is no hot water in the rooms, just water at ambient temperature.( which is thankful given the heat outside) The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were all friendly. The upstairs room was clean and spacious but basic. The mattress is hard. The balcony overlook the lagoon and... More

This hotel is very basic but clean. No hot water in my room was a negative, nor a tv. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were all friendly. Room was clean and spacious but basic. Stay was comfortable, if not exciting.

It is difficult to review this hotel without talking about Funafuti town, and Tuvalu, the second smallest country in the world. It is an atoll, and is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Funafuti is connected only to Suva, Fiji by Fiji Airlines flights twice a week. Tourists to Tuvalu are rare, but a lot of people... More

Keeping in mind this is the only real hotel on Tuvalu, there is still a lot of work needed to make this place worth what they charge. The rooms are a good size, but the bed I had was not particularly comfortable and the bedding was old and even stained. The room had a small mini fridge, air con and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room is OK but the mattress seems like a few years old, can feel the spring at some spots. Food in the restaurant is good but can have more variety and more local food as well. The staff are very friendly and look after us well.

My stay at the Vaiaku Lagi was very pleasant. Facilities are basic, but they are the best you'll find on Funafuti and definitely met my needs. Hot water is non-existent, and electricity can be intermittent ins ome rooms - but all very deal-able! The staff were lovely - if you are courteous and have a sense of humour and patience,... More

I came here for meals a few times during my stay. Prices were very cheap (at around $7 AUD per meal). Quality was fairly average, but you aren't going to find better in Tuvalu. Beer was available but just VB at $2.50 a can. Friendly staff. A good place to watch the sunset. Also good to use the internet here... More
