All the staff were incredibly friendly, the view was amazing from our villa, guides were excellent as were all the available activities, the food was very good as was the spa. On the downside - when making bookings or any other request nothing was ever written down and no receipts were given (apart from vouchers which were part of our...

An idyllic location, with superbly attentive and friendly staff, amazing food and our room was beautiful. We took a day tour around the east side of the island and our guides were knowledgeable and answered all our (sometimes ridiculous) questions. The entertainment at dinner each night was brilliant and the Fia Fia cultural evening was well worth it. Only a...

I was greeted at the airport by the driver who brought me to the resort. He shared some interesting facts about Samoa along the way. The first thing I noticed when I got out of the car was how quiet it was. All I could hear was birds chirping. Then as I made my way to my Oceanfront Villa, I...

Talofa lava Steven. Great feedback. Thanks. You have taken in some key elements that makes this place so very special and we are thrilled with that. Interestingly enough, our vegetation is a natural habitat for the bird life that is abundant on the resort and the other wonders of nature creates a sanctuary to soothe the mind and soul. Thanks...

First impressions were good and checking in was also acceptable without too much effort. Room was good and clean, massage was great and we found the beach and lagoon fantastic with the clear waters. The restaurant down over looking the water was a nice place to enjoy lunch and catch up with our Samoan family when we were there.

Perfect in every way. Spell blindingly beautiful location. This is not a resort for people who expect a five star Sheraton, Hilton or Park Hyatt experience with TV screens and opulent high level resort rooms. Having said that, the rooms here are beautiful, with gorgeous bathrooms. The views are breathtaking. The beach here is one of the best we have...

Sinalei Reef Looks like an expensive resort should, beautiful grounds, lush palm trees, wooden entrance hall. It stops there. Everything is just a little bit off. From being asked 'are you all alone?' 'Where is your boyfriend?' and 'just by yourself?' by at least three male staff in the space of breakfast to the less offensive loud laughing by the...

We could not find anything wrong with this place. We really had the most enjoyable experience. We stayed in a garden bungalow, which the Owner explained over a drink is the origianl accommodation of the resort. The room is spacious and bright with good aircon.
