This was an incredible place to go. Spent 9 nights here and it was just long enough. The snorkeling is unbelievable and you can go straight off the beach. The staff were absolutely lovely. The cleaner could have done a better job in our fale and next time we would take stronger insect repellent. But we will go back anyway.

We booked a day trip from the main island to Atata Island. This booking was done at the Visitor centre although we had actually planned to go the following day.

We spent four nights at Royal Sunset before bad weather made us seek more company in Nuku'alofa . It is a quiet relaxing resort with very attentive and friendly staff. We enjoyed the meals which were rather generous in size. The traditional Tongan fish wrapped in taro leaves was delicious as was the raw fish dish. It was a quiet...

We booked a day trip from Tongatapu to this resort. It was a great day with a welcome fruit juice on arrival, lunch included, as well as a 45 minute snorkelling trip just off the beach. The resort was nearly empty so we felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves. There is also a small village on the...
