most excellent stay at Orator - staff extra friendly and helpful, facilities amazing but especially the pools and beautiful gardens, rooms very clean and tidy, good 'out of the way' location and serenity, food very good.
planning to go back there soon with my family so they can experience it too.
i have never stayed in a hotel anywhere in the world where ALL the staff from the security, to the cleaners to the reception to the owners are so happy and friendly......felt like i was a friend and not a guest....beautiful
I definitely recommend Amanaki Hotel in Apia Samoa. Close to town, taxis and bus station. Quiet location near the water. Good restaurant with good selection and reasonable prices. Large rooms and lovely pool area. We had a rental car and found this location very easy to access all parts of the Island of Upolu. We stayed 5 nights at Amanaki before going to Savaii for 2 nights. Good snorkeling at the nearby Palolo deep marine reserve. Excellent free 2 hour cultural show at info centre and also visited Robert Louis Stevenson museum. We also enjoyed dining twice at the Swashbucklers restaurant at the Apia yacht club nearby.
