I stayed here with my partner and teenage daughter for 5 days. It was pure paradise. Very cheap it included three meals a day, the food and service was amazing. Falesoa treated us like family our fale was pretty much above the water. This place has excellent service, great family hospitality and the best food. We have been telling all...

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!

I had a wonderful experience at Joelans, amazing food, the vibe there was awesome and the place was just what I was looking for during my solo trip. If you are looking for luxury then this is not your place but if you'll have an amazing experience with them. The owner is so nice and polite. We were late for...

We really enjoyed our time staying at Joelan beach fales. All of the staff are super friendly and will do anything to help you. The food was also great which was a pleasant surprise! The fales were comfortable with a simple bed and mosquito net (with a few holes but it wasn't a problem!) but overall clean and we slept...

I've stayed here for extended amount of time a few times and it's one of my favorite places on earth. Sione, falesoa, rasta, Lenny, Ola and the rest of the crew are great. They go totally out of their way to hook up your stay. So many positives... Beach, sunrise, food, location.... Head to the market and buy a bunch...

We visited over the christmas period! At first everything seemed wonderful as it is layed at a great location. The owner was nice and explained everything. But with time it got worse: DIRTY showers and toilets, mosquito nets with a million holes in it so mozzies could come in easily. The food was good at the beginning but got worse...

We spent our first night at Savai'i here and our last one. Great place to stay. The owner is great and will sit and have a few beers with you, take you to his plantation and nothing is too much trouble. The staff there James, 20yrs and the cook...sorry forgot her name despite giving her lifts home in the rain...

We were recommended to stay at Joelans when we were next door at lauiulas. Unfortunately at the time though, they had the samoan QLD rugby club staying there so there was no room. After travelling the island by scooter, we came back and stayed for 4 nights. Pro's; 1) The fale was big and god views. 2) The beach and...

Falesoa is so lovely - she made us feel like family! The Fale's are named after her daughter Joelan who is really sweet. We got a good taste of Samoan hospitality! The food was amazing and lots of it. When we arrived and I enquired if their Prices (very cheap) included breakfast. Falesoa said of course and dinner - what...

“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.”
