We stayed here 3 nights during our trip. The hotel is nice, clean, good A/C, but very loud. They had a band on a Friday night and the guests in another room nearby were drunk and very loud. You could hear them laughing and talking until the early morning. Then one of them got sick and you could hear her... More

The service was terrible. The bathroom had a foul smell you couldnt not flush the toilet properly. There were cobwebs behind the doors and on the ceiling. The stuffed up our dinner not once but twice. They also stuffed up my booking by over charging. They made the mistake and did not give us a discount. The breakfast and dinner... More

Very friendly staff, and the rooms were very spacious and ideal for big family. Air condition nd hot shower were perfect. So highly recomends to... More

We arrived after midnight and didn't really know what to expect. We didn't mind trying this place out as other family members have recommended it. The wobbly doorhandle wasn't a good sign to start with, then the lighting was just too dim, room size was just too crammed for 2adults and a 7yr old and all our luggage. The aircon... More

Apia was full and there was little accommodation available. This hotel was found and it is a long way out from town so there is little practical sense in staying here if you have business in town. The rooms are plain but clean (sort of) and the bathroom was good but the sheets on the room were dirty (full of... More

We arrived in the afternoon without a booking to have a look. The two staff who were in the (very nice) reception area didnt seem very interested in assiting us or showing us a room. The young man they eventually called to show us a room was very helpful, but initially we only stayed because we were hot & tired.... More

This was my first time in Samoa and was recommended the Moanalisa by a work mate. Great place. Air conditioning in all rooms Great pool Great bar 20 mins by bus to Apia Service is relaxed, if you need anything you just ask. Easier to go next door to the dairy to get small amounts of tea, coffee etc than... More

Sadly this was our worst experience of the three hotels we stayed at. We spent three nights. While the room and view was lovely, the service left little to be desired. There was only one cup no milk provided, and the coffee and whitener sachets were all dried out. The room was never serviced during our stay. The staff came... More
