4/5 Good

Well situated on the beach. Very friendly staff that makes you feel at home. Some staff however needs training, especially the cleaning personell. Breakfast is OK but not up to the level of the hotel.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location, friendly staff, great accommodation, great relaxing resort for all type of guests and enough variety at resorts to cater for all tastes. Tours really informative and relaxed. The Maeve Band show was very entertaining and like most of the guests we really felt part of the family. The weather was great, sunny mostly with cloud and rain on some afternoons, which was fine, because it was passing through. The temperature was perfect too, days and nights. The service was a little inconsistent but not enough to take away from the holiday. Menus change a little due to seasonal food availability, A little thing that would be really make a difference is to have a clothes airer in the each room. Saves the accommodation verandahs being decorated by towels and bathers. Another would be the gift shop having more practical things in it like sunscreen and Imodium as a couple of suggestions. Just nicking out to the shops is not practical without hiring a car, getting a taxi or waiting for the shuttle to go to Apia, twice a week, all cost money. Even having RTP labeled, swim shirts, towels, hats bottle cap opener (which we spent hours looking for at Apia). Overall a really great holiday, definitely would recommend and go back. Just make sure you plenty of sunscreen, little first aid kits, (especially diarrhoea tablets), sealed snacks from home country and a bottle cap opener. Regularly check your room bill. It’s the these small things that sometimes makes the difference.
