Maria, Eduardo and Viliami along with Torito the dog and Chikita the goat and many chickens are a delight to stay with. We had a wonderful stay here, it was just of the main island of Vava'u yet we seemed a world away from anywhere. There is great swimming around the the islands five beaches and you have great privacy.... More

Staying in Tapana is like staying with your aunt in Spain. You will get treated like a family member and don`t expect the sterilized hospitality but a totally original and wacky place. There is only one hut on the island that is rented to guests, and it is right on the edge of the water, a type of view that... More

Maria and Eduardo are old hippies that do fantastic meals and music when they are in the mood. When Maria is not in a good mood you will know about it. pretty rough accommodation, heaps of mossies and rats. Go for the hut perched on the cliff face. Lovely locale with the visiting yachts moored nearby.

We stayed here 2 nights. The food was the best Spanish I have ever tasted. There were kayaks and a catamaran for guests to use. I recommend this place.
