    Service was excellent staff went above and beyond, rooms were spacious and clean, beach was beautiful we had full use of kayaks, definitely take sea shoes as it’s rocky. You can see whales beyond the reef just amazing to see. Breakfast was standard but fresh fruit every day was a treat! best resort on the island from what we saw also with great island night and great food, highly recommend

    This is probably the nicest resort on the island! When we arrived we were wowed with the stunning ocean views and immediately taken care of by staff like Lotu. The staff here really understood good customer service. We had a complimentary continental breakfast which included great coffee, juices, an assortment of cereals and toast. It was also very easy to park our hire car on site.

    Me and my mother stayed for 6 nights and I loved it, especially my mother (she’s also really picky but to my surprise she rated this by far the BEST resort/accommodation in tonga) Nothing can compare to Vakaloa, from their amazing and friendly staff to their delicious food not forgetting the breath taking view you get from sunrise to sunset! Every morning we were greeted by all staff, breakfast was never a let down. Their Wednesday and Friday buffet & show was AMAZING! Room service was really good too. One of their staff I think his name was Kasi was really out standing!!! I honestly highly recommend this resort to anyone travelling to Tonga! It is kinda far from town but it’s honestly the most peaceful place in Tonga! Thank you so much Vakaloa, this will not be my last time staying with you!! Here’s to many more lol

    By far the best resort in Tonga!

    I travelled with my 4 daughters to Tonga and first stayed at a 4star Hotel in town then moved the West of the island of Tongatapu and spent 2 nights at Vakaloa. We were well looked after from the time of check in to check out. The Staff and owners Marion and John ensured that our stay was pleasant and comfortable. They moved us to the rooms closer to the beach and allowed us to check out late as our flight was departing Tonga at 1145pm. The rooms are very clean and breakfast was great with local organic fruits and fresh bread, cereals and eggs cooked to your preference and their omelette was so yummy. Vakaloa is a family friendly Resort and the best in the Island. We instantly felt in love with the amazing ocean views, kids swam everyday and they have kayaks free to their guests to use. I highly recommend Vakaloa for the beautiful seaview location, cleanliness, friendliness. It is a family friendly resort and the Staff are at the premises after hours for any emergency. We now call Vakaloa home and I had such a great experience that I have now booked to stay there again in July. It is a great place to escape to with scenery to die for. Thank you John, Marion and your lovely Staff for making our stay a memorable and pleasant one.

    Lovely, comfortable, clean rooms, filling breakfasts each morning, and a gorgeous beach to swim or snorkel in. The facilities are very well presented at Vakaloa but it's the staff that really make this place special. Everyone is so warm, welcoming and friendly. It was a pleasure to stay here - i can't wait to come back.
