We needed a place to stay at short notice and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The room was basic but fine. There is a nice garden area where you can have breakfast and the pancakes were delicious. It is quite a long walk into Apia but the taxi was very cheap. There was nothing to lure us for... More

We stayed at the Outrigger for 5 weeks throughout June and July and we were blown away by the fantastic location, beautiful grounds and incredibly friendly staff. Both the rooms and fales were clean, comfortable and well maintained and offer a truly Samoan experience. Staff were always keen to share advice about the island and help out with booking activities... More

We stayed twice at this hotel, once in a fale and once in room number one. Fale was ok, but room number one was really uncomfortable because it was very hot and very noisy (the only window faces a road with a lot of traffic during the whole night). Also, although we had confirmed our booking for two nights over... More

Talofa Jusus M, Thank you very much for your review. Over the period from June to mid July we have had problems with 3 separate bookings. This is of course something that we take very seriously. As you can see from most of our reviews our good service is always an area that our customers comment positive on. I have... More

We stayed in one of the airconditioned apartments, but the hotel offers also samoan garden fale and not airconditioned rooms, so there is for everybody something. The best was the garden with a big pool.

We stayed at the Outrigger Hotel for several weeks and it was absolutely the right choice! It is very close to the town and with a car you are very fast on the other side of the island (we also rented a car in the hotel, which we can recommend as well!). There are several lovely restaurants just around the... More

I am a medical student who was staying at the outrigger during my elective in Samoa and I would highly recommend staying here as it is fantastic value for money. Claus the manager and all the staff were very friendly and there was a great atmosphere around the place. A fantastic breakfast of fruit, pancakes, eggs and as much toast... More

Booked online for two rooms for one night for three people. When we arrived, turned out they booked us in for one room for two nights for three people..and the hotel was fully booked by that stage. One of us was forced to relocate to another hotel Elisa - which had a bar and nightclub next door. They did pay... More
