An absolutely sensational place to stay, eat and drink. Beautiful views, great location (only 5 mins drive, 15 min walk to DownTown Vila), friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Daniel and the troops there will make you feel right at home. And what can I say about the food - incredible! Cannot wait to get back there.

Daniel really made me feel like I was at home. Great conversation, really helpful local advice and friendly staff. The room was very clean and I had no trouble with any of the amenities during my stay. I loved the pool. I would recommend to anyone wanting great value, and a nicely contained residence..

Exceptional! Andrew, Debbie and their son Dan were the Best host. Our group felt at home at the Seaside Retreat. Perfect for group tour. Awesome breakfast, very clean, comfortable, easy access to town, buses runs every 10 mins all day n night, pick you up n drop off infront of the hotel. Awesome view ...nothing to complain about really...they took really good care of us that they are part of our big Tonga family now. We all miss you Andrew, Debbie n Dan n cannot wait for your visit to our island kingdom. Thank you so much for everything, sincerely appreciated. Ofa atu

We stay 8 nights at the Retreat Seaside as a touring party of 15 and Wow what a great time was had. The owners Debbie, Andrew and especially Dan from the start made our trip most enjoyable. They open there hearts and made feel at home. The facilities there were great, enjoying the view in the in ground pool or watching movies from the pool. The price are very good and the food and service was great. I highly recommend to stay at the Retreat Seaside.

This place is phenomenal. The owners are so welcoming, genuine, caring, and kind. It's a safe and secure place that is impeccably clean. The food is delicious (and reasonably priced), wifi is super reliable, and has comfortable beds in decent sized rooms. Nothing was even remotely stressful or less than awesome during my stay. Great location, great views, nice pool. Would DEFINITELY stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone.
