We stayed over the Easter holiday for 8 nights and had the most amazing time. We stayed in the superior beachfront fale with no bathroom. It suited...

We recently stayed at Ha'atafu with our adult children, while attending a wedding in Tonga. We all absolutely loved our stay and really appreciated the family feel of the resort.

As everyone says ... this is an amazing place with a real family atmosphere. Moana, Hola, Anou and Ryan really go out of their way by having fantastic staff to keep the place looking pristine, and keeping us fed with amazing food.

What can I say that has not already been said in previous reviews. This was one fantastic holiday stay. Meeting the "real' Moana, Hola, Anau and Ryan and of course Rebecca and Gabriel, was in itself a real experience. Nothing was too much trouble for this amazing family and their friendly staff. Food was delicious and varied. Anau even made...
