We travelled here with our 3 yr old son and 6 month old daughter and had a great time. The accommodation is a little basic but hey, this is Tonga. The staff there, Mosi and Maka are wonderful. I read a comment that someone who stayed here got the impression that they were funding the owners lifestyle as opposed to the owners being fully engaged and while I can agree with this to a certain extent, it is a little cynical. The owners will come round each morning to check that all of the guests are comfortable and apart from that you do not hear too much from them. However, when my wife had to go to hospital after contracting the dengue-fever like bug (nothing to do with cleanliness of resort) they ave us the services of Mosi for as long as we needed to help us through the hospital stay which was invaluable, thank you for that. And it looked like we needed rescuing from the little island by the scuba diving operator (we didn't, he was just giving us and our kayaks a lift back) the owner was there, front and centre, checking everything was ok.
I didn't personally attend the 'feast' or get Mosi to cook for me after the first time but perhaps I'm fussy, it wasn't to my taste but not inedible and I thank her for offering us the consideration of a meal after we had just arrived there.
It is quite remote and the expense of meals, washing and countless trips to the town centre do add up but I could not fault the hosts or their staff. My son loved counting and seeing the pigs, dogs, cows etc on each journey.
In fact, the church service and feeding the pigs, which were both organised by Mosi and Maka were highlights.
