We had an air-conditioned room downstairs but even the fales look really nice in the garden. The breakfast was really nice (even had sausages and baked beans) and the staff were delightful. Our plane was delayed by 10 hours and when we arrived back from the airport at 5am they let us have our room back, get some sleep and... More

This place is pretty decent for the price. There was a nice breakfast, the pool was clean and refreshing and the location wasn't too far for the town and also nearby a shop and a good Italian restaurant just a little way up the hill, the shared showers also had warm water which was hard to find in Samoa!

Talofa James, Thank you very much for your kind words. Our staff works very hard to keep our facilities including garden, communal kitchen and swimming pool in clean and presentable condition. Our Samoan Garden Fales are kept in very good condition (2 of the 4 Fales are just build 3 months ago) but since there are no walls as such... More

This hotel is very conveniently located in Apia near restaurants, supermarket, restaurants & taxis so you can walk or drive easily from here. The staff are so friendly & willing to help with all of your activity recommendations & planning. We upgraded to a private room rather than a shared fale experience. Absolutely loved having breakfast poolside every morning with... More

I would recommend the outrigger to anyone travelling to Apia. I had to stay here for a month for my nursing practicum and I could not be happier with the accommodations. All the staff were extremely generous with their time and helping out if I ever had questions. Facilities were clean and accommodating. The place felt like home after no... More

While in Apia we stayed here. The house girls are amazing and so welcoming. They also were very helpful and ensured we had all we needed. Breakfast was excellent and provided a variety of fruits and such each morning. There is also a house guard who ensures we all felt safe each night and accommodated our early morning starts. I...

The best place to stay in Samoa! Staff members were very generous and always willing to go above and beyond. Hotel was very clean, and well maintained, and only a 5 minute car ride into town. Simply the best!

The parking available is used by a car rental company; so usually no parking available on the property. Breakfast is included but the boiled eggs are a turn off.. Why not eggs freshly cooked?

Talofa Greg, Thank you for your review and your nice comments about our staff. I do remember you staying here. I am not sure what the issue was regarding the air condition. We have 5 rooms with AC (all very new AC units and still under warranty) and if we have problems like that we normally just call the people... More
