A well priced hotel for the accommodation on offer. However, it could do so much better with just a little bit of thought and expenditure without changing its character or primary market. Some examples, more variety at breakfast (effectively no choice and same thing every day), more efficient air conditioning, more comfortable seating in the lobby and by the small...

I only stayed one night here (with my three children) on our first night in Samoa. We had hoped to stay longer but there was some confusion around the bookings .... We stayed in a fale in the lovely gardens, and the kids enjoyed the pool, which is a decent size. We all thought the breakfast was awesome, there was...

The highlight of this establishment was the staff. We arrived at 0500AM and presented to the hotel after a long overnight flight. The staff were happy to offer a free early check in to allow us to get some rest. This was really appreciated by us. The hotel offers breakfast, which was simple, but satisfying. The location is close to...

A long trip from Maui but interesting to see this remote part of the world. The hotel was fine and so was the food. the whole town was clean and we did a trip around the island to see the local trades and crafts. Well worth a visit

The staff are the real asset to this place, all were genuinely interested in making sure you had a really good stay. We got to stay both upstairs in the family room and also downstairs in an AC room...

Talofa, Thank you very much for your review and your comments. We appreciate your constructive feedback. Regarding internet unfortunately its expensive in Samoa. I do know that a cable will come in 2017, which they say will make it much more affordable. However right now being on an island makes it more expensive than what most people are use to....

This was not what we expected - less a hotel and more like a home stay. It's a leafy corner off the main road out of Apia, with a large, beautiful old wooden building, and a modest garden with simple pool, four garden fales, and a small dining area. Rooms are in the main building, but we stayed in two...
