Clean rooms and nice pool, The staff were always smiling and the place was well run. It was very close to town just up the cross island road and near a store and gym. I would definitely stay again. Thanks

My room was really big, with an ensuite bathroom. Everything was clean, but the room was facing the street, so it was loud, and it was impossible to cool the room down. There's also a pool. Breakfast is included and nice, even some hot homemade items. The hotel is not in the center of Apia, maybe about 10 minute walk...

I'm rating this stay as poor, since the Fale I stayed at *cost was 80 Tala = approximately $32 USD) was really not comfortable and I hated it. If I did not like it that much, I could have upgraded to a fan room at 150 Tala ($60 USD) or an aircon room for 200 Tala ($80 USD). The pricing...

Talofa Pinchetravels, Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your positive comments regarding our staff, service, amenities and breakfast. Regarding WIFI. Unfortunately WIFI is rather expensive in Samoa. By the end of the year Samoa will have a new fiber optic cable which will bring down internet prices significantly. Another way to get cheaper internet is to buy a local...

I stayed for two nights and ended up returning after exploring the island for a day. The hotel was clean, basic and a good place to rest your head in town. Advice on travel around the island was a bit limited and staff were friendly yet didn't provide much assistance on transport/further destinations aside from tours/car hire. Overall a lovely...

The hotel is nothing special, the rooms are small but clean. The service of the staff is good, and the employees are smiling and helpful. If you like cooking the kitchen is open to customers, and in front of the hotel there is a supermarket. The pool is clean and well maintained. It also offers a car rental service.

The Outrigger is the perfect place to stay in Apia - a colorful, exotic garden area with terrace and pool, kitchen, laundry service (15WST each) and a comfortable reception area with a free book shelf. I stayed in one of the garden fales for three months (Oct - Dec) and enjoyed every single day (and night). The staff is friendly,...

This place has lovely staff, clean rooms, historic building, lovely pool and great breakfast! We missed AC though since it was so hot at night. Great place to live, rent a car and explore the island. Internet was not good, but that seems to be the case in many places in the island.
