I travel to Samoa regularly, I've stayed in the resorts and in the budget hotels, but I now choose to stay at the Marina. Tanya, the manager goes out of her way to take care of you. The rooms are clean and comfy and the cafe is excellent. Anything you need is taken care of.

The proprietors of this hotel, convenient to the harbor and good restaurants, provided round the clock hospitality. They were even so kind as to give me a ride to the very distant airport when my flight left at a time when no taxi drivers were working (the wee hours after a Sunday). For a very reasonable price they provided a... More

We spent just one night at this hotel on our return from Savaii before our return flight to NZ. The location is great, although front rooms can be noisy as it's on a busy road. The room was clean except for an ant pile in the bathroom.Otherwise the bathroom was great and the shower terrific. We were very disappointed in... More

The location is perfect - near the sea port, on the street of good bars and restaurants. 15 min drive to Robert Luis Stevenson Museum. I paid just 99 tala for a single AC room. its very competitive price. The manager Tatiana is very... More

Charged late checkout after a long stay and no guests checking into room after us. Espresso machine not utilised and now turned off because nobody knows how to use it. Get some training!

We were not looking for a modern and luxurious sort of hotel during our three days tour. What we wanted all was a comfortable stay at affordable price. Luckily we arrived at Samoa Marina Hotel through a reference. The hotel stood simply perfect on our expectations. The hotel staff were certainly a surprise. Never expected them to be so hospitable...
