It's a perfect oasis in the middle of a busy Vaitele. The rooms are great, the pool is very nice for a cool down after a hot day out. This is a great place whether you are a business traveller or traveling with your family. Very friendly owners and staff

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

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
