Stayed for about 10 days in the Pua and obviously had to adapt to local standards. The spacious room with spacious bathroom overlooks the bay/harbour and gives stunning views. Balcony with one(?) chair. Airco worked well, and we had plenty of furniture inside. Walking distance to everything in town. We had daily breakfast with a group of 10, and this... More

Being a local it is indeed rare to be travelling but i was so fortunate to be part of a group that toured Vava'u and it so happened that we stayed in Puataukanave.. such a beautiful and well kept place that allows you to soak in the scenery and to just enjoy life as it comes your way.. such very...

Poorly clean, lots of bugs, but well located and cheap. Security is not their thing, my friends were stolen . They caught the lady in situ and called the police. Be careful! The pool was not operative either.

Good place in town but should but better. The grounds are very nice right on the water and a little wooded area with a cave in the back. The rooms are clean, have hot water but are out dated. The people are nice but will only do the minimal. The pool had no water. The TV and credit card machine... More

The hotel rooms are huge and cleaned everyday. I really like the speed of check in and how laid back the hotel staff are. The hotel runs on 'Island time' but they really make a big effort to accommodate all requests. On the down side the pool was out of service, the wi-fi was 'finished' and you needed a good... More

Breath taking scenery and thats about it. Reading past reviews this hotel hasn't changed at all. Our stay here was meant to be 2 nights but unfortunately the state and smell of the room was unbearable. Linens were disgusting, beds looked like they weren't changed from the last guests, broken furniture, rusty basin and left over soap in the shower,... More

The Pua is in a great location. But all stars stop there. We were upgraded to a large room which had broken furniture, a tv that didn't work (supposedly cyclone Ian but I suspect unpaid bills), floor covered in hair, dirty toilet, and no hot water. We left after 1.5 days and received a refund after a 10% refund fee.... More

During the last three decades we have travelled extensively in the South Pacific and stayed at a wide range of places. After our stay on the most beautiful island of Fava we flew up to the North of the Tongan Archipelago to Vavau, Neiafu. The hotel was OK, unfortunately not more, but the island itself is on the other hand... More

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.

Picture postcard view of the harbor from the floor to ceiling windows. In fact I think I saw our view on a postcard. The room was clean and spacious and comfortable. 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
