The apartments have several advantages over other accommodation. They are a great price for 2 room accommodation, they are in easy walking distance of other restaurants. They also have friendly, smiling staff, a kitchen with ready stocked fridge and a complimentary fruit basket (drinks only in the fridge, but at very fair prices). The reason I haven't given them a...

We stayed here as a couple for three nights after a week on an island resort. The weather was windy and dull which probably diminished our favourable perceptions. There was absolutely nothing seriously to complain about this two-bedroom second-level unit. One flight of average-slope outside stairs which were quite manageable Having said that, we found the place a bit old-fashioned... More

I booked this rather late and it was the only place meeting my “need” for some kitchen supplies and WiFi. I stayed there on two occasions in different rooms over a three week trip to Tonga (I was concerned about same-day connecting flights so took the precaution of staying overnight in Tongatapu). These apartments are provide with a huge number... More

If you ever travel to Nuku'alofa, stay at Captain Cook Apartments. The staff are very friendly and the rooms quite comfortable and self-contained. It is not far from the main part of town and is walking distance. You even pass the historical Royal Palace. It is definitely home away from home.
