10/10 Exceptional

Cozy and comfortable with lovely sea views
Great and cozy family-style hotel with very personalized service. Comfortable rooms (go for the ones with a view!), great running or walking along the sea in mornings or evenings, and quite decent pizza as a treat for dinner.

We had a fantastic stay at Little Italy. My husband and I stayed for 14 nights. Our room was immaculately cleaned every day. All staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was absolutely delicious. We were so happy with EVERYTHING...can’t say enough to recommend it. Would highly recommend Little Italy as the number one place to stay in Tonga.

Affordable & Great food
Room lay out was strange and made it feel smaller. Shower head needs to be changed so water doesn’t go on floor. no hair dryer in rooms. Was impressed the owner went above and beyond to prepare food for me, and the food was awesome with cheap prices. Stayed in wet cyclone weather and felt safe

10/10 Exceptional

I stayed for a week for work and I think Little Italy was a great place to stay. My room was a little dated, which may worry some, but for me it was comfortable and had everything I needed. They also have other newer rooms available for those that this may worry. The restaurant there is great and serves some excellent food and there are also a couple of other options within waking distance if you want a change. The staff were very good and allowed me to check out in the well in to the afternoon, as I had an evening flight when I departed, which is a level of service not many places around would offer. I would happily stay here again.

The only thing I didn’t like was climbing up the stairs with my luggage to get into the room.
