This was a special 50th celebration with friends joining us from different countries. The staff were excellent at the resort and in the dinning area's but the arrival area was not up to standard the and reception staff were very slow to attend and very slow to answer questions this did let the resort down. We had one of the... More

We spent 5 nites in villa overlooking the beach and 10 steps from the pool. Our villa needed some work..bathroom tiling, bed mattress..basically a good freshen up and see to. Location to eating and pool wonderful...the bar and land restaurant totally Samoan architecture and finishing but the meals are only just okay for their description and prices. Staff are lovely...

We visited Sinalei for our daughters birthday who was visiting from New Zealand. We enjoyed a cocktail on the deck followed by the Fia Fia night buffet and show. We had pre booked. On arrival we checked our dinner booking was in place and was told it was and that a table had been reserved for us. When we came... More

This is a very picturesque resort set right on the beach. We had a garden view room one back from the beach and lovely view. The fale wasn't huge but nicely adequate with unusual shower/bathroom outside. There is a stunning freshwater pool in beautiful surroundings and handy Harry's Bar. The staff are really helpful and friendly but the food is... More

We did not stay at this resort, but stopped here for a meal and it was fantastic. Probably one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had! So fresh. Gorgeous setting for the restaurant as we sat watching the sun set. Totally idyllic. The resort looked a great place to stay.

We stayed at Sinalei for a week early in July. We loved every minute of our experience. The staff were amazing...very welcoming, willing to help always and constantly had a smile on their faces. My boyfriend got a little sick for a couple of days and the staff were only too happy to provide us with 'local remedies' and were... More

We stayed for 5 nights in July in a garden fale. Perhaps we would be writing a more glowing report if we were lucky enough to stay in an ocean view fale. The staff are magnificently helpful and friendly. The grounds, pool area and oceanside location is certainly lovely as others have described. However our fale was very basic and... More

My husband and I stayed at Sinalei Resort for five nights in July - escaping the NZ winter. It is a gorgeous spot and the staff were absolutely amazing. Very lovely and willing to chat. The food is also delicious. We loved it, and would happily return. One thing to be aware of is that it is about 1/2 hr... More
