Spacious and comfortable rooms, the rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff happy to help out and give travel advice. We even got to attend a wedding and feast ( get in quick before the locals) We liked the snorkeling right out in front of the hotel.

Staff are friendly & helpful but very laid back... on Tongan time The rooms are adequate - decor is an unusual mix of Tongan & Riccoco styles. The Friday night buffet & pacifica show is the main...

In all the years of visiting Tonga the Vakaloa experience has set the bar high on this visit. There is no need to go anywhere else, we took a group of 29 and stayed at Vakaloa for 7nights, no one wanted to leave Tonga after staying at Vakaloa. John and Marion provide a great Tongan experience at Vakaloa, the best... More

We really love this place, we've stayed here three years in a row now. This year we were privileged to stay in the new ocean view fale. If you're visiting Tonga, make sure you stay at Vakaola Beach Resort even if it's just one night, especially on a Wednesday or Friday night so you can enjoy the cultural show and... More

This resort was so warm and friendly. A beautiful young family own and run it and gives you the true essence of the Tongan people. My friend and I think we were the only guests in the resort as it was so quiet but that was perfect for our days of relaxation and blocking out the rest of the world.

Good range of buffet food and drinks followed by an entertaining Tongan floor show (but seriously restricted view from side tables). A wonderful range of cocktails served by friendly wait staff, some of whom took to the stage with hilarious skits. Worth a visit.

I visit Tonga on average once a year and always make the time to visit Vakaloa Resort on a Friday for their traditional Tongan buffet. The suckling pig is yummy and most diners are catered for. Great range of cocktails and very friendly and helpful staff.
