I stayed here my first night in Apia so I could organize the rest I my trip. It was very cheap so I guess you can't ask for much, rooms cleanness are ok but bathrooms not so much. Breakfast is decent. Only real complaint is that when I booked it said free internet but later on you find out there... More

I stayed at Tatiana Motel for 8 weeks over December/January 2012/2013 for my medical elective. I found the owners absolutely lovely, and always willing to go out of their way to help you and provide the very best experience. They also made exploring the rest of the islands an absolute breeze! Things really got put to the test during cyclone... More

I stayed at Tatiana for just over 5 weeks this summer for my elective. I was apprehensive as I was travelling alone but I shouldn't have worried! I was made to feel welcome and part of the family from the beginning; definitely home from home! The place was clean, rooms equipped with aircon and ceiling fan which is a god... More

I was visiting Samoa as a medical student and had a wonderful time. I along with three friends stayed at Tatiana's for a month, and were made to feel very welcome. Tatiana's has the best of a hotel and hostel feel, with private rooms with en suite, air conditioning and are cleaned daily - offering clean sheets and linen. The... More

I stayed at Tatiana Motel along with six other travel companions for a total of four weeks. From the off we were made to feel very welcome, it was like a home from home. There was a real family atmosphere and the friendly staff there couldn't do enough for us to ensure our stay was a special one. The rooms... More

We stayed at tat's for a month in May and I can honestly say I have never felt more welcome at any place I have stayed. Sandra and family and the staff are all so friendly and really make you feel at home! The rooms were great with air conditioning, breakfast is included (fruit, toast, eggs and jams) and you... More

Tatiana Motel really made our stay in Samoa very special. The amazing family atmosphere and friendly attitude of all staff makes the place quite unique. Guests are made to feel like part of family, which for those travelling in Samoa for a long time is really nice. Sandra knows every inch of the island and as she works with the... More

I stayed at 'Tats' as it's affectionately known for 1 month in January. I was recommended to stay at Tats by several former medical students and they didn't lie- it definitely lived up to it's good reputation. The rooms are clean and fairly well sized with a toilet, shower & bar fridge. And importantly- they have airconditioning & ceiling fans... More

Sandra and her staff were very friendly and looked after us so well. It is very close to the hospital for me (medical student doing elective there), and only a 5tala taxi to restaurants and bars in town. Sandra was a wealth of information that helped us travel around the islands, and she really made us feel welcome. The room... More

Tatiana's Motel in Tanugamanono is definitely the best place to stay if you're planning to do a medical elective in Samoa. It's close to the hospital, and the air-conditioned rooms are a big bonus in the humidity of Samoa. I went with a couple of friends and we managed to get three people into one room - it was definitely... More
