We stayed at Lynn's on our final night in Samoa. It is in Apia and is about an hour away from the airport. It took us a bit to find it but got there in the end. It is a lovely old home. The room was basic but clean and tidy. Air con was lovely to have after a long... More

We cannot speak too highly of the staff at Lynn's Getaway who made us feel special during our stay. Lynn sets the standard which epitomises Samoan hospitality and, as other reviewers have noted, made us feel part of a very happy family. All aspects of our stay were made easy- from airport pick up through car hire and tourist advice... More

A very nice B&B style large house turned into hotel. The meals are served in a buffet style prepared for you from a large kitchen where the cook talks to you as he puts the dishes out on the counter. On Sundays the guests are offered a complimentary lunch of local dishes. Very yummy!

This place is da bomb! It is the perfect blend of great location, value for money, comfortable lodgings and friendly service. The Getaway was located about 5 minutes back from the town beach, just off the Cross Island Road. It's pretty easy to find if you are driving from the airport. The land is starting to rise there so the... More

We’re four medical students from the UK who stayed at Lynn’s for our electives in July. It was a 3 minute walk from the hospital and ideal for those on a budget – the staff are all incredibly welcoming, the house feels like a family home and Paulo’s food is out-of-this-world. The pool is perfect for relaxing by after placement... More

I've just left Lynn's after a 4 week stay while working at the hospital. If you're a medical student, don't stay anywhere else. It's by far the best place on the island. The house is really lovely, and the pool area is great, although not in the sun very much! The rooms are a little basic, mainly as our ensuite... More

From the welcome, to the meals to the staff - a great place to stay. It is like staying with family for all the right reasons. Marvellous breakfast, friendly staff, great evening meals of fusion cooking. Lynn's Getaway is used by medical students on section. They can be a rowdy bunch, although friendly and abide by the house rules. Try... More
