The above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.
Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.
My arrival experience: Long check-in before being escorted to the room.
What I loved: The location including the beach.
What about the food: Very good a la carte breakfast. I also enjoyed a good local fish & chips for dinner.
What about the service: Friendly staff, but lots of staff needs a lot more training.
What about the rooms: Simple rooms with outdoor showers as the highlight.
Number of rooms: 29.
Type of property: Resort.
Complimentary internet: No. No hotels in Samoa offer complimentary internet. One of the only countries in the world and something to be aware of. They advertise free internet on their Tripadvisor page, and I arrived very disappointed to see they find it acceptable to charge for it. We are talking 2015.
My overall impression: Good+ experience.
