Well, when we arrived at Virgin Cove (an extremely bumpy ride over potholes on a 3km dirt track that taxis don't visit), a staff member informed us that Expedia had stuffed up our accommodation and instead of staying in the beach bungalow, we were to stay in the open fale. * The hut with no walls had no light globe,...

Great location and beach with snorkelling directly from the shore. Coral is still damaged from the cyclone, but there is a great variety of fish. The accommodation is basic but that is what we expected - they are still recovering from the cyclone and tsunami. We stayed in a garden bungalow which had its own toilet and shower (cold water),...

I had 6 days at Virgin Cove in July and found it the perfect place to relax. Home for the week was in a fale about 10 paces from the waters edge. It was a little like camping as I always had 5 or 6 of the panadus (or maybe coconut palms) blinds open. They only needed to be shut... More

Virgin cove is a beautiful place that lets you get away from the normal polish that other resorts have. We stayed in Beach Bungalow #1 (only 1 as of the 9th July 2014 another being built) which is about 150m down a beautiful path from the restaurant. It was comfortable and the attached toilet and shower made the extra investment... More

Apparently this place was devastated by the typhoon a couple of years ago. Most other places have rebuilt and recovered. I believe there was a change of ownership as the quality of the food, fales and bath facilities is way down from our last visit in 2011. It has the prettiest beach on Samoa, but needs to be cleaned up... More

I stayed at Virgin Cove for 3 nights and enjoyed my time there immensely. The location is stunning and it is perfect if you want some time away from the busier resorts. You can safely snorkel off the beach and see a good range of fish. Other wildlife include crabs, bats & birds. The fale is right on the edge... More

The beach at Virgin cove is beautiful. Little segregated areas to make your own... If you are happy to have a quite time, and chill out on the beach in open fales, this is a beautiful place. Slightly expensive compared to places like Taufua at Lalomanu which include dinner, but worth the money if you are wanting your own company.... More

Upon our arrival we were welcomed into the newly furnished self contained unit which had two bedrooms, with two double beds in each room, a separate bathroom n toilet, lounge area, kitchen, dining table, oven, microwave, cutlery and kitchen ware. The unit also had fans and air con.... More

My friend and I drove a long way down a rugged road after paying $5 Tala to get some lunch at the resort. The location of the resort is stunning, but the resort I'd very basic and bare. Food was basic and ok, but only 3 options on the lunch menu. We took a shirt walk around the resort and... More

A friendly local woman in Apia recommended this place to us. I also read the reviews in an older version of Lonely Planet. A recent cyclone had wrecked the place. It was mainly wrecked with only a few fales habitable. The price had not been reduced; instead we found ourselves 'squeezed for every cent'. The worst incidents are : First... More
