We stayed here so we could easily access the airport to fly to Ha'apai and Vava'u. It is clean with friendly staff and comfortable beds. There is a pool, pool table and playground with mini-golf to entertain the active family. They also have many areas to escape and read. We would stay here again.

This Hotel is too far from everything to use other than a stopover before catching a domestic flight the following day and its close to both international and domestic terminals. The appearance is good, service is very good, food excellent and the staff very friendly. This was the second time we have stayed and noted a marked improvement, the management... More

We stayed two unplanned nights at the Scenic when our flights to Vava'u were cancelled due to weather conditions for 3 days. They collected us in one of their buses and returned us to the airport each day as we tried to get on a flight. The staff were excellent and raced around to prepare rooms for the unexpected guests...

The hotel is VERY close to the airport so great for transfers etc. Not close to a beach, so I definitely would not stay for an island holiday. Offer a $10 charge for the use of the pool for the day while waiting for a flight.
