  • 6.0.Good

    Not what I had expected.

    After spending two weeks in Samoa staying at different fales, these were my least favorite. The structure didn't look authentic, and was wrapped with tarps with large pieces of boards weighing them down. There was a storm the night we stayed, so it was loud with the sound of the boards and tarps swinging around, and a bright light from outdoors shone into our sleeping space. We didn't get any sleep. Bathroom showers (both the male and female) had used sanitary products in them. However, the staff were very friendly and attentive & the food was amazing!! Quick service as well at the restaurant.

  • 6.0.Good

    Stunning location but still being developed - fales on beachfront are basic but fine - best value for sure. Villas are new and clean but still being developed - plumbing not finished in kitchen sink, no table and chairs. Double rooms tiny and no air con - overpriced for what you get. Menu is basic but disappointingly, half of what was on the menu was not available - and not signalled before ordering. Also pack of dogs roaming beach were intimidating and noisy

    Basic, nice people, good spot

    Very budget place, friendly people, nice to be amongst the real Samoan people, room was very basic, kettle wasn't working and it needed to be replaced, service was OK but needed to ask for things that ran out, evening meals were basic and nice - management could bring the resort more up to present with better training/support. We enjoyed it albeit.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing experience and conditions

    Although we chose villas for added comfort and the windows had mosquito netting there were large gaps in the front door and the back door. I don’t really understand the reason for the back door as this just led to the wild bush and a stagnant pond. This may explain why we were bitten by mosquitoes and midges every night. Also both villas were infested with ants. Staff seemed disinterested and didn’t recommend anywhere to go - we walked to the Return to Paradise resort which is about 1km away to get information. We also got charged $20 per hour for Wi-Fi when we asked to use to check family were ok back home. On the plus side the beach was lovely and (we saw blue star fish and other tropical fish) and the food was really nice.
