All Fales are on the water from memory. The food was good. we had fish, kfc style fried chicken, sweet and sour pork and chicken curry. We were never hungry. When we did eat at restaurants we found the food to be only slightly better. The kitchen seemed clean and hygenic. Our hosts were very friendly and even dropped us...

We stayed here with our three children and had a lovely time. The beach is beautiful and great to swim and snorkel in. The huts were traditional and basic- like camping! The food was plentiful, fresh and tasty- we were lucky enough to join the family for an umu on Sunday. All the facilities were really clean. It is not...

We stayed there for 5 nights, the family is very nice,fale was big and clean, roof was a bit leeking when heavy rain. Food very tasty, beach nice and clean, water clean and warm and not deep. Perfect for no swimmers and children.

My husband and I had intended to spend 3 nights at the Joelan Fales but unfortunately we'd had enough after just one night. We had read many of the reviews on here raving about the delicious food, welcoming family environment and cleanliness. None of this is true. We now doubt the authenticity of these reviews. We had emailed a few...

The ocean is at your tiptoes when you sit at the edge of the fale. It truly is blissful here and the family are so hospitable. The food was good and the fale comfy enough. For the price u can't go wrong. We got a free lunch too because it was father's days! Such lovely special people

This was our first stop as we biked around Savai'i. Lovely host. Fales are right over the water. There are larger family fales available and our host accommodated our family of 5 easily. One of the few places that offers 3 meals. Enjoyed tea and coffee being available at any time. Friendly, traditional and a pleasant beach.

We had a wonderful moment there. 3 meals à day made with love, lovely team. And incredible location just in front of the beach. You can even jump from your bungalow to the sea. All that for a reasonable price!

“The open fales are great and really allow the breeze to come through and make it very comfortable. There are shades that you can lower that are good at keeping the rain out and can provide shade when the sun comes up.”
