From my early am pick up at the airport- The friendly and attentive staff members Lufi and Fiona were very helpful during arrival, check-in, and throughout my stay. I stayed in suite 238. The A/C was strong, room was neat, and mini bar a plus. Bed was my only let down as it isn't as comfy as It looks. I...

My team was in Tonga on a week's work and chose this place for its proximity to CBD. However very disappointing stay and hence checked out after Day 2 instead of the original 5 days stay intended. Firstly my room was unprepared- TV not working, floors dusty, shower not working. On the second night there was a power outage around...

Before I start, let me say that my brother is the GM for the hotel, but I will provide an honest review (if I had to lie, I wouldn't bother reviewing!) I spent the weekend at the Emerald as a getaway for my wife and youngest son. The rooms are large, well appointed and very clean. The bathroom (an item...

If you are looking for a place that will bed you comfortably in clean, spacious rooms, this place will make you happy. Location is perfect - on the foreshore and a walk into the business area or up to the docks or down to the Palace - and I slept like a baby every night. It may have remained just...

We stayed at this property in September 2016 and it was not at all the "boutique hotel" advertised. As my wife and I have traveled to over 200 countries in the world we are used to all kinds of accommodations. But the worst part about this property is that the power and water and paid WiFi went out for hours,...

Extremely noisy (52 dB) room located immediately above a noisy generator or air con unit - intermittent noise throughout night. Absolutely unacceptable when nighttime noise levels shd be around 30 dB. DO NOT ACCEPT THIS ROOM IF OFFERED (unless you have a set of industrial strength ear plugs!)

We stayed here for 2 weeks due to a series of conferences! If anyone has been to China they would see this hotel as a typical small town Chinese hotel. Literally every part of this hotel is from China, the décor, the fittings, the toilet paper even every single item, even the TV has about 15 Chinese channels, my wife...
