While the rooms & pools show signs of wear & you're meant to use towels for two days (upsetting my husband who wants a clean towel every time), the gardens here impressed us both. After a day at the beach it's the perfect place to while away the afternoon with a pool-front villa (we were in #20). Well placed gardens... More

Had little trouble with hot shower but managed. The property is very clean a big thump up for that. you do need repellant for mosquitos up... More

Starting with the positives: 1. Most of the staff were friendly and willing to please. Met some great people. Great service. Manager Yvonne always made sure of that. 2. We were upgraded to a pool side villa at no extra cost due to our villa being double booked. 3. Pool was clean. 4. Cocktails were great and inexpensive. We stayed... More

We spent two lovely nights in the Orator Hotel near Apia. We found the staff to be wonderful and very attentive. It was a lovely setting, very restful and quiet during our stay. It was great to experience dining with locals, staff and their families during Easter and we enjoyed the pool and garden surroundings. The air conditioning unit maybe... More

Our stay at the Orator was good except a few things, The standard villa we stayed in was very comfortable, with a spacious bathroom, quite environment and beautiful gardens. NOTE: villas are so close to each other that you must draw the curtains day and night so the staff and other guests don't get a full view of the inside... More

Well one place to start would be the positives. Such as location was great and the rooms/facilities are nice. Besides that the staff need a serious overhaul! Consistency is definitely what needs to be put into place. FILTER and CLEAN the pool, hardly wanted to use it. Dirty, murky, empty bottles at the bottom. A pool cover would be a... More

A decent enough place to rest your head. Check in was a pain as they seemed to have lost our booking but sorted it out quickly enough. The staff were warm and friendly. Breakfast was good with a decent selection of food including fresh fruit and pancakes.Had lunch one day and it was terrible. I had tacos and it was... More

This resort is clearly targeted at upper end clients and for conferences. Beautiful drive way, grounds, environment, pineapple and taro plantations surrounding each chalet. You could spot little geckos running around everywhere.The service was so attentive it felt slightly uncomfortable, but this probably depends on the part of the world you come from. The staff's natural friendliness shone through. .... More
