My wife and I retreated from the rainy season to a town on the northwest coast of Savai'i named "Without Water" (Vaisala) and stayed at the lovely Vaisala Hotel. Tell them you want Room 21 if you want snorkeling at your footstep, Koko Samoa drink for breakfast, a gourgeous village to walk around in, and interesting things to see on... More

My fiance Siosefa Tupa'i and I stayed here for 7 nights, it was the best having our own hideaway, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, perfect spot, the beach is to die for, the staff were excellent and the owner Kolone Vaai is just the perfect host, very charming and hospitable, we will definitely stay here again in the not too distant...

This is one of the best kept secrets on Savai'i island. We brought our Killara West Pymble junior rugby tour here in 2012 and we loved it so much we toured again in 2013 with Gordon Junior rugby. The service from the staff to the owner Kolone who runs the hotel is very professional. They really look after you and... More

Recently spent a day at Vaisala whilst staying at a nearby resort. It is a large, old style Samoan hotel, looking a bit worse for wear. We had lunch at the hotel, on a large, high deck/balcony overlooking the sea. The view was fabulous. Contrary to other reviews, we enjoyed a good lunch and staff were very pleasant and helpful....

Look beyond the tiredness of this place and experience the tranquility of the location. If you want 5 star don't come here but you will miss out on something unique. We thought the food was OK, breakfast was great with a good choice. The rooms although basic were clean ( the bed was very hard ) and most of all... More

Didn't spend the night here, just came for lunch. Was quite run down. Bad food. Not sure of the prices but you'd need to be desperate to stay here. If you are on a tight budget, look at the budget fales in the Manase area. That's a great spot! Or the nearby Vaimoana is a great place to stay instead.

though a little run down probably due to the sunshine, this is a classic venue. Our family of 9- adults, nana and teenagers had an absolutely fantastic stay at Vaisala. The rooms comfortable, clean, air conditioned (which helped after your long day in the sun), serviced. Very helpful staff, only to happy to help. The food - lots of choice... More

The Vaisala Hotel was a great hotel in its day but has sadly slipped into a state of decay, which would be a challenge to reverse. The plumbing is dire...in our school group we even had water from the room above leaking through the ceiling and down the light cable of the room below. The hotel complex is vast and... More

I can forgive alot but not a lack of cleanliness! After walking across the floor my feet were black. The bathroom looks like it hasn't seen more than a basic clean since the day the hotel was built - the dust and grime behind the doors was simply gross! My bed smelled of stale sweat and the towels were thread... More
