Greg and Lisa at Tropicana are excellent contact people for anything you may need in Neiafu. Good coffee as well, internet, and nice breezy cafe. Thanks, see you again!

Didn't like the service, food, prices. Owner/Manager was rude to there own staff, yelling, and talking down to the locals. She forgets she is a guest in there country.

Personally I reckon Tropicana is the best "hangout" Vavau has to offer. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. I go to Vavau annually to visit family...and Tropicana has become my fav place to dine at and check my emails. Cheers!!
