The International Dateline Hotel - recently refurbished and reopened is a Pacific Hotel that I think has started well. (again) My father traveled around the Pacific for years in the 70's and 80's and as I tell him about my travels he tells stories of "Iconic" properties he remembers staying at and recalls great banquets, parties and functions where good...

Newly renovated and it looks good. The beds are comfortable the air conditioning in the rooms is amazing. The pool is great - a little crowded and the tile around it is slippery so be careful. But it does the trick and is the best you can get in Tonga main island.

Malo e lelei Pennybell You seem to be a very tough marker. In the 3 sentences you wrote I note the words "newly", "comfortable" , "amazing" "great" and "best". Look forward to having you back so we can turn 3 stars into 5! Regards Jason and the Dateline team

The hotel was aesthetically lovely and clean. however, though it is directly across from the water, there is NO BEACH! The people were very nice. However they are amateurs. The staff didn't know some of the top tourist attractions (fish pigs, Royal Sunset Island) and they behaved oddly, knocking on my door at nearly 10 PM to get me to...

I went to the Tanoa Gateway restaurant about 6:30 to have dinner on a Sunday (in Tonga, almost all local restaurants are closed on Sunday so large hotel restaurants are the most convenient choice for people staying in hotels without a restaurant). Many years ago the Gateway was a first class venue for people visiting Tonga but over the years...

Malo e lelei Rainbow Your review is spot on. Unfortunately as no where else was open on the Island we, as they say in the industry, got slammed and were not able to provide our usual level of service. It does seem like we ticked all the other boxes. Regards Jason and the Dateline team

The Tanoa dateline is a great location, modern, fresh and clean. The kids loved the late night pool and the lovely Rachel had fun with us experimenting and making cocktails. We really appreciate her friendly and fun attitude. Rachel you deserve a promotion!

We did not stay here, but stopped in from our walk to get out of the rain. We ended up having drinks at the bar by the pool and then, even though the rain had long stopped, ended up staying for lunch. Both the service and food was great. Thanks so much to Rachel, she was awesome and is a...

I stayed 3 nights at the Tanoa. It is a sea change from the old Dateline hotel and certainly a cut above alternative options in Nuku'alofa. By far the best accommodation option in town. Room was new. Food was good and wifi whilst not complimentary was more than adequate.

We had excellent service, an impeccably clean room (thank you Ana), strong AC, pretty view of the ocean, a beautiful clean pool and they even let us stay in the room an extra TEN hours so we could shower before getting onto our night flight. (A perk they could accommodate because it's not the busy season.) Thank you!!!
