Stayed here for a week before moving to another part of the island and found it to be absolutely fantastic. We had the large family room, with loads of space, and the pool was a welcome treat (particularly for the kids) to start or end the day. Enjoyed the breakfast and the proximity of the hotel to Apia and loads... More

Had a short stop here on the night we landed in Samoa before moving onto other parts of the island. We stayed in one of the fale's and loved it! As you can expect if was basic but it was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and helped us to arrange our rental car the next day, they... More

Stayed in one of the fales for two nights. Good mosquito nets and rain cover. Privacy shades old and not that effective; cat able to get through and was in fale. Also, fale close together, so hear everything in other fales. Large lock box which was helpful, since you can't secure fale. Beds are two futons stacked, comfortable. Good price.... More

We stayed three nights and was a perfect place for a short stay. The room was basic but clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and staff sought our feedback on some new items they were trialling. Can be a bit noisey with dogs barking/traffic at certain times but the pool area and outside grounds are really lovely... More

I stayed recently with a group and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 5 nights - which was a split visit with a trip to Savaii. Everything was clean, well organised and breakfast was great and we loved being able to walk up to Giordano's Pizzeria. The Outrigger is just out of town but there are taxis just across... More

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.
