I stayed here for 4 weeks during my medical placement - it's only a 5 minute walk from the hospital and 2 minutes from Lynn's supermarket. The staff and family were extremely helpful and welcoming and had information about the hospital as well. Breakfast included a selection of weetbix, cereal, fresh papaya and pineapple, boiled eggs, bread + jam and...

I had a wonderful time on elective here, it was only 10 minute walk for the hospital, a 5 minute taxi ride to town and a major place for medical students to stay. At one point during my stay the motel was full of around 30 medics. It was an extremely fun elective. Rooms were basic but very large and...

If you are heading to samoa - you must enjoy some of the friendly, caring hospitality that Tatiana's offers. This is a family business and the care taken of those staying there is fantastic. Conveniently located near some good restaurants, and supermarket, plus a short taxi ride to downtown Apia. Highly recomended! Thanks - Patrick and Shona!

“Ask for the rooms away from the road- they have better air con and the water is warm. Be wary though these rooms are always in demand so you may have to start out front and work your way in.”
