Room was clean and one of the best places to stay on the island. Close to everything you need. Staff are very friendly. They can connect you with most people on the island. The hotel rooms are typical of what you would find in the Pacific

Been to Tuvalu on several occasions and this hotel is as good as it gets. Basic accommodations with air conditioning. Staff is helpful and the food is good. Understand that the hotel may have a new owner by the end of 2016. Hopefully, the new owner will upgrade the facilities so more people are attracted to visit this beautiful country...

This hotel is very basic but clean. There is no hot water in the rooms, just water at ambient temperature.( which is thankful given the heat outside) The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were all friendly.

This hotel is very basic but clean. No hot water in my room was a negative, nor a tv. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were all friendly. Room was clean and spacious but basic. Stay was comfortable, if not exciting.

It is difficult to review this hotel without talking about Funafuti town, and Tuvalu, the second smallest country in the world. It is an atoll, and is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Funafuti is connected only to Suva, Fiji by Fiji Airlines flights twice a week. Tourists to Tuvalu are rare, but a lot of people...

Keeping in mind this is the only real hotel on Tuvalu, there is still a lot of work needed to make this place worth what they charge. The rooms are a good size, but the bed I had was not particularly comfortable and the bedding was old and even stained. The room had a small mini fridge, air con and...

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room is OK but the mattress seems like a few years old, can feel the spring at some spots. Food in the restaurant is good but can have more variety and more local food as well. The staff are very friendly and look after us well.
