On the day and time we went there wasn't much water or slides. Great to be so deep in nature but would be good to know if there are specific times of the day to go to get the most out of it.

Such a fun thing to go do! Love that it is a natural playground for all ages. What wasn't as nice was it was a bit sore when you got to the bottom but that was only because since the cyclone there was not as much water at the bottom to land in

We each paid $5 tala at the village entrance and made our way down a long staircase to the pools. I chose not to slide on the rocks because I thought it looked a little dangerous - it seems like you could easily hit your head on a rock when coming off the big slide. Friends of mine did slide...

The gardens at top are lovely but you need to be careful, the walk down to the rocks can be long and slippery, the rockfall is interesting but you need to watch where you go as not that much water in which to fall.

Despite the water levels being way down due to the dry season the kids had a ball here, sliding and climbing everywhere. The adults had to be a bit more careful! A refreshing & fun place to spend a few hours only a couple of minutes out of town

The ladies group have done a wonderful job of the parking area. It is clean, colourful, toilets and fales available to rest in. It was great to have the concrete walkway and the seats on the path. The only dislike was the lack of rubbish bins. Plenty of signage to tell us not to litter but nowhere for us to... More

There are lots of steps to go down to get to the rocks and they are varying sizes, problem is you have to come back up! Great exercise but hard work. The water is fresh and clean, lovely to swim in.

This place can be a lot of fun, especially for older kids as they really are sliding rocks! Just be careful as things can get a bit slippery and just make sure of the depth of all the sliding rocks you go down.

It's a small fee to enter, that supposedly goes to the local village. It may seem like crazy, but you literally do slide down rocks that appear bumpy but are quite smooth. I went with a tour guide so he knew which rocks to slide down, but it is relatively easy to figure out.

Like much of the Samoa experience advertising, the sliding rocks did not meet expectation! The free pools in the National Park were far superior.
