Given Room 4, this had no garden view and no ceiling fan, avoid room 4. Moved to rom 8, still no ceiling fan and no tv. Moved to room 11 where there was a fan and a tv, but it only had 2 fuzzy channels and no satellite channels. Thats the negatives out of the way. The positives are that this resort is in a beautiful location, stunning views out to the reef and sea and on two of our mornings we watched Whales swim by whilst eating breakfast. The breakfast uis an excellent buffet of fruit cereals and toast and hot food can be bought seperately. Dinner portions are large and filling but could do with a few more veggie options. We stayed for the Dinner and Show and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had veggie food cooked for us and salads and desert from the buffet. Lotu in the kitchen provides amazing service, he is a star. We also hired a car for a day costing $80 tops. Do this as soon as you can as they do run out of cars! We would love to return to this resort, relaxing, good food, snorkelling and whale watching. Finally we caught the local bus from Muku'Alofa to the Resort, great ride and cost $2. There is a local village 5 mins walk from the Resort with two small shops and awesome fresh bread.

What a hidden piece of paradise! Our family recently stayed at Vakaloa for a family holiday. The staff were so attentive and kind! Each of them knowing our children’s names by the end of our trip. The rooms and eating area are well kept. The setting on the balcony as we ate breakfast was beautiful! The quiet and peaceful sounds of the ocean and watching the whales swim by was more then we could have imagined! Food was a taste of home (USA) which was helpful with picky eaters! The beach area is clean and views are wonderful! The staff were willing to help us with everything! Booking rentals for a car and giving us info on all your and activity around the island! Sione and Marian have a beautiful establishment! We are grateful we found you on Expedia!
