Mary and her staff do a fabulous job with fantastic food choices and friendly service. A wonderful place to hang out and chat with locals and tourist about fun activities to do around Vava'u!
This poolside bar serves simple but good food. The swordfish was off (kudos for not serving off food). Instead I had the taco basket with fresh Italian sausage which was delicious. The place has a great vibe with regulars who make you welcome. Good eating.

I would choose Poolside to dine over Mangoes. Wished you were open on the weekend but understand that you guys had a busy season. Food - brilliant, service - great , Mixing and mingling with locals and visitors alike - great
Loved the options of food, actually had Mexican food! Loved the conversations with patrons. Owners are wonderful!
Food was great - went there just once for lunch and had an Aussie burger, which I can recommend! The staff are very friendly and it seemed like a great place, but for somewhere that sells itself on having a pool it needs a clean...More
The pool is the property and responsibility of the Puataukanve International Hotel. During the months of August and September 2013 the pool was affected by both pump and filtration issues. This resulted in the pool going green. These issues have since been resolved and the...More
