As everyone says ... this is an amazing place with a real family atmosphere. Moana, Hola, Anou and Ryan really go out of their way by having fantastic staff to keep the place looking pristine, and keeping us fed with amazing food. We had Fale 3 and it was set up with 2 of the most comfortable king single beds...

What can I say that has not already been said in previous reviews. This was one fantastic holiday stay. Meeting the "real' Moana, Hola, Anau and Ryan and of course Rebecca and Gabriel, was in itself a real experience. Nothing was too much trouble for this amazing family and their friendly staff. Food was delicious and varied. Anau even made...

We loved our stay at Ha'atafu resort and had a wonderful 7 days. The setting is perfect, next to a beautiful sandy beach and the grounds are well kept with lots of palm trees and other exotic trees with give the place extra character. We had a room on the first row with perfect views out to the ocean and...

This place absolutely lives up to it's reviews. The most stand out thing about this place is the hospitality. Moana and Hola, Anau and Ryan will make you feel at home and treat you as friends. Their children are also awesome to chat to and be around. The beach is beautiful, everything that you'd want in a tropical holiday- great...

We love staying at Ha'atafu. This was our second time there and it was much the same as the first- amazing! This time we had our 14 month old daughter with us. We felt safe and secure taking her there as we knew that the owners Moana, Anau and their families would make her feel as welcome as we both...

At the risk of sounding lazy, probably as a result of such a wonderful relaxing holiday, all I can really say is that all the 5 star reviews written by other lucky people that have stayed here are absolutely spot on. If you like your luxuries, don't like getting sand between your toes and expect to be waited on hand...

We tried to get a Fale with ensuite, but were out of luck as they were sold out. Ours was a bed with shared toilet facilities. Worked out fine in the end. The toilets were kept very clean with easy access. The resort is small and very family orientated. The owners make you feel like you're their guests as opposed...
