dissapointing and will not stay here again

Very dissapointing stay and end to my holiday. My main suggestion for the owner would be: get some signage and check in/ out process! I was very lucky I had an amazing taxi driver who assisted me on the morning I wanted to check in as I did not see the owner until the next day. My bag was placed in a room with a very questionable lock by a maid that did not speak English or even said hello to me, and that was the whole check in. I had no clue where the facilities were, where breakfast was or anything else regarding my stay - let alone feel safe in a hut that could easily be broken open. The bathroom was cleaned ok but as there was no signage I ended up sharing the bathroom with 2 men as none of us knew which was the ladies or men's bathroom. Breakfast was a joke.. I had to knock on a door, wait until a lady shows up, ask for something to eat, the lady would bring it and then as soon as it was placed in front of me, disappeared behind the door again.. No conversation, no interaction, nothing. I felt I was intruding during someone's work or in someone's home rather than being on holiday. The location is ok, definitely not a 10 minute walk to town as advertised, but close enough. Taxis are very affordable. Very happy the resort was on a 2 minute walk away as there was nothing to eat or drink around after 'breakfast'. I've stayed at 4 different places in Samoa, most of them were simpler and cheaper than this place - but showed the beautiful Samoa lifestyle. This place was nothing like that and I was very disappointed that this was my last stay. Definitely will not recommend this stay to anyone. Samoa is a beautiful place, the people are so very friendly, and this place did not do this justice at all.

Peaceful accommodation close to Apia

The bungalo was comfortable, clean and had a view of the water. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was provided and was different every day. It took me half an hour to walk into Apia but I only did that once as taxis are really cheap and plentiful.
The only dining option close by is the resort (which is actually reasonably priced so give it a go) otherwise you have to go into Apia.

Very quiet pleasant location right on the water's edge. Close to the bus. Sara is lovely and very helpful. Lovely cooked breakfast to start the day. A basic fale with a bed, chair, table and fan, four louvred windows to catch the breeze and a nice little deck with 2 chairs. Photos will be added later. My fale did not have a shower and toilet but they were not far away. Being a great-grandmother, I felt very safe there.

The staff was very friendly and the breakfast delicious
The sheets haven't been changed, so we found hair and fingernails that were completely disgusting

Samoan way to live

I had such a good time. I've met so many local people as Sara and I went out sometime and showed me their culture and way to live. The rooms are really basically, but that's how the Samoans live and it's good to experience. If you're just looking for a relaxing holiday the accommodation is perfect as you can just go for a swim and relax in the sun. The atmosphere is amazing!

Sehr freundliche und offene Atmosphäre. Hilfreiche Unterstützung. Sehr saubere Unterkunft, regelmäßiger Wechsel von Handtüchern u Bettwäsche. Frühstück abwechslungsreich. Direkt am Pacific Ocean!!!! Einfach reingehen und schwimmen.... In unmittelbarer Nähe zu einer tollen Galerie, die eine geniale Küche hat.
