    Really nice. We stayed in the Sunset room which was huge and even had a piano. Very private. Breakfast was nice but if ur a coffee person u wont enjoy it here. Better off heading down to Milanos for a decent cuppa. They could possibly loose the common room TV as well. A little hot/cold sign on the shower as well so 5 minutes of water isnt wasted waiting for the hot. I actually got under it cold as i hate waste but my guess is most people wouldnt. A simple sign might fix this. They also need to lose the 'This is private property No Trespassers' sign just inside the turnoff. Very weird and VERY misleading. But look for the coin this place is excellent, quiet, safe and friendly. You MUST have a car here i reckon.

    Do not stay here

    Did not stay here as the location was to far from anywhere. My rental car was not made to drive up a steep mountain and I was not impressed at all with the service. I don't reccomend anyone staying here. So all up I lost my money and I had to pay damages towards the rental car which was damaged during the ride up the mountain. Waste of time and money.

    Nice setting, great price

    This was a cool place to stay. We just needed a place to stay while returning from a trip to New Zealand. I thought it would be cool to try. First off, this place takes a while to get to. It's way off the beaten path, but once you get up to it, it's a really cool setting. It's up on the side of the mountain with a great view of Apia. I understand there's a waterfall on the property down by the cabins. Our room had a great view. If you stay in the cabins, I don't think you'll get the same view. The room itself was large, but very basic. There wasn't any AC, but that isn't bad when you have a breeze up on the mountain. They had a great breakfast in the morning that was included in the room price that we had. When I first checked in, the clerk said that it wasn't included, but I showed her the e-mail, and it was taken care of. In the morning, we caught a ride down to Apia with Dave. It appears that guests can ride from the lodge to Dave's store in town in the morning and return in the evening. It was a cool place to stay.

    This is Samoa’s hidden gem. Overlooking Apia, the view is amazing, and despite not being as outwardly flash as other more highly priced accommodation....this was was far and away the best place we stayed. Large rooms, adequate amenities, great pool, awesome breakfast, hospitable and welcoming staff. Even a resident cat named Tiger. Incredibly cheap! Importantly, this is not reflected in the entire vibe of the place. Highly, highly recommended 😊

    The property is in a great location but the staff were not the most helpful, i met at least three others who said the same while i was in Samoa.
