Have recently stayed at the Heilala Holiday Lodge in Nuku'alofa Tonga and have to say what a lovely place to stay. I call it "afternoon delight" because that's what myself and my family enjoyed there...a couple of drinks sitting in the garden in front of our fales every afternoon in the cool. The fales themselves are clean enough and comfortable and the showers hot. The garden is the real drawcard though and the pool to have a cool dip in after a day of sightseeing in the heat. The garden is great for budding photographers wishing to try out their macro lenses. There were five of us in our group spread over the three superior fales which were all close to each other. I would recommend this as the place to go for groups. Another couple with our tour group stayed at the Lagoon Lodge and paid more and thought our place was better. The meals were nice and we also did a tour of the island with the lady owner for the day which is lovely as well. It is well located just out of the ugliness of the main town and it was easy and cheap to catch a bus to town from there.
