Situated in the centre of Apia close to the harbour in a lively neighbourhood full of fine restaurants, Marina hotel is probably a good value for money in Apia. However the staff of the hotel still requires a lot of training. On the day of our arrival, we were the only guests in the property. The hotel seemed a bit... More

This place has a good spot on the marina, close to the rental car companies and a number of decent restaurants, and walking distance (maybe 15-20 mins or so) to town. It's a good option for a cheap base in Apia if you're not staying too long. Service is friendly and welcoming, breakfast is fresh (tropical fruit, eggs, toast) Having... More

Stayed here for a night back in June with friends. We stayed in the Family room and it was very nice. Comfortable and roomy. It exceeded my expectations and was definitely worth every cent. The bathroom is a good size and the living area separated by French doors with t.v , table and chairs came in handy as we were... More

Location is right opposite the Main wharf & there are many good restaurants/shops around the corner. Taxi stand is right opposite. The manager Tanya is very helpful & you could no ask for better service & hospitality. She goes out... More

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
