We stayed here in September and I was expecting more from the reviews. The location is very good, it was a shame the standard of food didn't match the location. I guess I was just expecting more. Staying on the beach is great, but it...More
We stayed here in a Beachfront Oceanview Double Fale. Views were amazing however we had horrible weather. Rain and strong wind.
Checked in and met with Lydia who I had been emailing for our booking.
We were shown to our fale and had a good...More
If it's packet-tourism deals you are after then it's bearable I suppose. Otherwise for the searching thinking traveller strongly unrecommended. Packed, noisy, overpriced, serving bad food . Rude manager. Like a camp, much more expensive of course.
There are plenty of better and cheaper hotels...More
We spent 4 nights here as part of my husband's 'surprise' birthday present. The staff were very friendly and hard working keeping the resort very tidy and clean and also provided most of the fiafia night entertainment.
Our fale was on the beach front and...More

As a frequent guest, and someone who has been helping the resort rebuild since the Tsunami, I am answering on their behalf. You have compared Samoa to Noosa and to Bali, but I think unfortunately you haven’t taken to time to understand Samoa, their culture, and the unique challenges of the country. It’s a small island, in the middle of the Pacific, with significant challenges as a developing economy. Most products are imported (consider the cost), access is challenging, and power is mostly diesel generation, from Apia. So let’s not pretend for a minute this is a first world “Disney” destination. So to ask why they have a good rating, is asking the wrong question.
Litia Sini is not 5 star, but many travelers have rated their experience highly because they connected with the place or the people. You obviously didn’t, and that’s OK. But I am concerned someone “oversold” Samoa to you, and your expectations clearly weren’t then met. If you feel the website, or marketing material wasn’t representative or accurate, then we need to change that. Because we want to align people’s expectations with the experience. If a travel agent oversold the place, or Samoa, then that would also be great to get feedback on. Travel is a personal and individual thing. Samoa isn’t for everyone, it requires a sense of adventure, and some people simply don’t want that on holiday. That’s understandable.
The onus on the travel marketers, is to ensure expectations are aligned, so that people are matched and aligned to the destination; be that Samoa, Noosa and Bali.
