Shame we never met this Sven guy, he sounds as cool as his lovely wife! 6 of us (3 couples) booked as part of a holiday package. What a wonderful place to stumble upon! Sure, the restaurant has limited options (but I'd prefer that to the average service and food we received at a bigger resort down the beach!). The...

We swam, read books, got the bus to town, ate, sunbathed,played cards. We met people in the villages who invited us home and were just so friendly. Management and staff were helpful, friendly and met our needs.

If you're looking for a friendly, relaxed, quiet place to stay this is it! Sven and Karolina make everyone feel like they're staying with friends. Fantastic for couples or families with children 8yrs+. We stayed in a superior Fale which has bathroom. Was modest and comfortable. All the fales have mosquito screens over windows however we took a mosquito net...

We organised a 5 night romantic holiday for two with Heilala Holiday Resort based on the Trip Advisor feed back and we were not disappointed. The hotel pick-up was waiting for us on arrival with a lei each, a wonderful touch. We were driven about 40mins to the lodge and shown to our rooms by Aleki who explained the room...

Five nights made perfect by great staff and a great facility, great value for money. The room was well prepared, clean and everything we needed. I was impressed by the extras that came free from the daily drop off in Nuku Alofa, the bikes to the help yourself to the bananas. Sven sorted everything for us, Carolina (apologies for spelling...

I stayed for 7 nights and was thoroughly spoilt by the owners and staff who were so friendly and accommodating. I had a wonderful relaxing and fun time a Heilala and recommend it to anyone. The room facilities were so clean and quiet, I slept so well and the food was delicious and tasty. The free city trip offered by...

We stayed at Heilala for three nights. Overall, this place is really nice. The accomodation is nice and clean, and the atmosphere was very quiet and relaxing. We ate in the restaurant the whole time, and the food was good, although the lunches could be a little stingy! A word of warning about the beach - it's really nice, but...

Friendly, unpretentious and good value. We just spent six nights here and really liked it. It's not the most deluxe place but frankly we don't need the tinkly-tinkly stuff when all we want is a bit of beach time and to relax. Nice beach, although not much good for swimming an hour or so each side of low tide. The...

From the second we arrived at the airport, greeted by Tina wreathed in smiles and brandishing a lei we knew we were in for a real treat. We chose Heilala largely from trip advisor reviews and are so glad we did as all the glowing reports were nothing but accurate. Tonga is unique in the pacific, as it is still...

This was my third visit to Tonga over the past year and have stayed at Heilala each time. The accommodation (standard room this time) was clean and functional and only a short distance from the communal toilets and shower in one direction and kitchen in the other. The tropical breakfasts were yummy and the dinners we had did not disappoint....
