5/5 Excellent

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Incredible view
We stayed for a week in the over water bungalow. The bungalow is showing its age, however still really comfortable. This is five star location, with the balcony over looking the ocean. The air conditioning worked really well and the room is equipped with a fridge that stayed cold, coffee making facilities and towels. We will miss this place and would definitely return

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
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.

Disliked: Cleanliness
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.
