My only negative for this hotel is that they have to wash your towels and then bring the same ones back, there doesn't seem to be extra sets. I had so much trouble with the towel situation it made it very frustrating. I was staying there for a family reunion and the most important function was starting at 5pm and... More

This is among the best hotels in Apia. Convinient located opposite the western sea wall between parliament and the local markets (fish, flee and local produce). The busstaion with all the want to photograph or ride colourful buses is just 200 meter down the road. Large and clean rooms openening to garden level ground floors and blaconies in 1st floor....

Clean and spacious room. About 40 minutes drive from airport but that is how far Apia is. Handy to the town. Good service. Staff very polite and friendly, we only had breakfast there. Probably needs to provide more of a selection for the price. Had to use ear plugs as there was a "night club" somewhere on Saturday night, our... More

This is a very pleasant resort close to the old Apia markets and shopping area...fair hike from the airport but there is a lot to see on the drive. Rooms were large and spacious...try not to get one near the restaurant as there is a fair bit of noise..trolleys and staff chatting, which although not offensive goes on all hours... More

Apia is an excellent base to explore all that Samoa has to offer with a number of attractions nearby and others accessible through tour operators. I will mention to our lovely staff to... More

Talofa Mere Its wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your first trip to Samoa and particularly staying here at the Tanoa. We also appreciate the "pointers" that you have provided for future guests and agree in principle with what you have mentioned but conversely, whilst inconvenient, it are these drawbacks that add to the charm of Samoa and the "little...

I had a ground floor room with a patio overlooking the tennis courts. The room had everything that I needed. Electric kettle, small fridge, iron and ironing board. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet at night. The staff was very friendly and there is an afternoon pickup game of football close to the tennis courts. The food... More

Talofa Penrath As a business traveler we appreciate your comments on internet pricing, unfortunately access to fast and reliable internet is expensive in Samoa and I too look forward to the day it becomes more affordable for our guests.

Centrally located in Apia, this hotel offers a good range of food options, swimming pool and small gym. Is it an easy stroll to the town centre and the staff were friendly and helpful. Room rate doesn't include breakfast, but it is easy to either eat there or walk into the town for a decent and well priced meal
