The Apt are good size, old comfortable furniture. Has full sized stove fridge, micro wave, large TV with cable yet poor channel selection. My second stay. Stay 4 nights. Large comfortable main bed lot of clothes handing space. So for the cost it is a really good self contained option. Walk to shops in about 20 minutes...not good in summer!!...

The apartments have several advantages over other accommodation. They are a great price for 2 room accommodation, they are in easy walking distance of other restaurants. They also have friendly, smiling staff, a kitchen with ready stocked fridge and a complimentary fruit basket (drinks only in the fridge, but at very fair prices). The reason I haven't given them a...

We stayed here as a couple for three nights after a week on an island resort. The weather was windy and dull which probably diminished our favourable perceptions. There was absolutely nothing seriously to complain about this two-bedroom second-level unit. One flight of average-slope outside stairs which were quite manageable Having said that, we found the place a bit old-fashioned...

We stayed here for 6 nights recently. The good - the ladies who run the place are lovely and work very hard to make sure you have a nice stay.

I booked this rather late and it was the only place meeting my “need” for some kitchen supplies and WiFi. I stayed there on two occasions in different rooms over a three week trip to Tonga (I was concerned about same-day connecting flights so took the precaution of staying overnight in Tongatapu). These apartments are provide with a huge number...

I came to Nuku'alofa for a two month work trip and my office booked me into The Captain Cook apartments. I have stayed in serviced apartments before and usually there are no pots pans or eating utensils. This is the opposite, the apartment (E) was well equipped. The first day I was greeted with a bowl of fresh fruit which...

If you ever travel to Nuku'alofa, stay at Captain Cook Apartments. The staff are very friendly and the rooms quite comfortable and self-contained. It is not far from the main part of town and is walking distance. You even pass the historical Royal Palace. It is definitely home away from home.
