The hotel feels old but has its charm. It's all wooden and rooms have a balcony with ocean view, air con and hot water. Service is good and the beach is nice too. The car park is locked at night and I heard it is the second oldest hotel in Savai'i.

Would recommend to any person/family wishing to find a spot away from the business of life, food is absolutely fresh and tasty, our rooms were cleaned spotless daily and all our belongings were very secure, rooms are quite old but clean and that's all we required. Beach is at your doorstep and so beautiful. If you get a chance to... More

Wonderful verandah to have a quiet drink or meal on. Delicious buffet and great band on the Saturday night we stayed. Lovely view and beach - and a place to play beach volleyball if you are so inclined. Rooms basic but comfortable and clean. Loved it.

Friendly helpful staff. Even when we locked the keys in the room. It's a little out dated and basic but the staff and the food make up for it. Band every night in the restaurant. I will be back! oh and large private beach and a masseuse.

We stayed one night in this very well located hotel up northwest on Savaii. We wished we had stayed at least two. We had an old lovely bungalow close to the very nice beach. Clean, enough space and a fridge and a lovely veranda to loook out at the beach and ocean. The restaurant had several choices of food including... More

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

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....
