The Waterfront Lodge in Nuku'alofa is in an excellent location just a 20 minute walk along the seafront from the town centre. We stayed in a sea view room for 4 nights before switching to a garden room for our last night as the sea view room was booked. Although previous reviews have commented on the noise we found it no problem and much preferred this option with a great window onto Tongan life right in front of you. In contrast the Garden room vista was disappointing. A view of 4 large cement water tanks and hard standing for 2 vehicles hardly constitute a " garden view" although the room itself is up to the same good standard as the sea view room. The breakfasts were ok although lacked variety but nice setting, served on the verandah, whilst the staff were friendly and helpful. The decor and furnishings in both rooms were good and there was plenty of space.
HOWEVER, the " disappearance" from our room of 2 small value items on day 4 did bring a sour note to the whole stay and spoil an otherwise great visit. In 35 years of travelling the world this is the first time we have suffered this issue.The lesson learnt is don't assume mundane articles left in your room are safe.More
