This is a great hotel, particularly if you have a car, as it is a bit of a walk down the hill to the centre of Apia. (They hire cars out here as well). The pool is large, deep, cool and clean with lovely chairs and lounges. The gardens are well maintained. I stayed in 3 different rooms during my... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks while doing a medical elective at the hospital in Apia. Not only was the Outrigger was conveniently located (6 min walk from hospital), but the hospitality and service here was exceptional. Breakfast every morning was healthy and filling, the rooms are airy and clean, and the entire place is decorated in calming hues of... More

We stayed at the Outrigger for an extended period of time and enjoyed it immensely. Klaus was very accommodating during our booking and stay and even took us on a beach BBQ on the south side of the island. The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable and they make a mean crepe pancake. The rooms are spacious and airy, and the... More

Stayed here for almost a month in Jan-Feb and the staff made us feel so welcome and comfortable that it felt like home and was very sad leaving at the end. Everything is clean, there is a great garden and pool, perfect for cooling down from the heat and humidity! Breakfast of fresh fruits, toast, pancakes and eggs is a... More

We stayed at Outrigger Hotel for 3 weeks and loved every moment. From the moment you walk in, the staff are so friendly and helpful.

Thankyou so much to everyone at outriggers. 6 of us stayed for our medical elective and had a really amazing time. We met other students at the hospital staying at other hotels and we'd definitely choose this one again. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and put on a beautiful culture show at the end to say goodbye. The... More
