We liked the accommodation, loved the outdoor shower. We were unlucky with weather, and kept going after one night.The local village charges you to pass through, only on the way in though. Bunk beds were not too popular with our tall lanky kids and no barrier on top bunk freaked us out a wee bit. Apart rom that, friendly staff,... More

All recent reviews sum up the property well, good accommodation right on the beach front with great staff making your stay comfortable. The only problem we had during our stay is the poor mobile and internet coverage at the resort. You have to remember Samoa is a developing nation and will improve when the new optic fibre cable comes in... More

Smiley Tala picked us at the airport and drove us back to this small resort, only 6 bungalows (they are currently building 2 more). Bungalows are very spacious and clean. The shower is outdoor and amazing! They also have a budget option in a small building behind the resort, which I have not visited but where mostly surfers were staying.... More

We just pottered around, chatted to the staff, did some tours with Tala and hung out with the other guests who were really lovely. We loved the cultural day with... More

3 bodyboarders celebrating our 40th birthdays this year. After advice from The Perfect Wave, we decided on Sa'Moana, taking advantage of their great SurfX package, and I have to say that has been the decision of teh century!!! I believe the people make your stay, and Amos, Tua, Tala, and the rest of the staff at Sa'Moana made our holiday.... More

Loved every minute, from friendly pick up at the airport in air conditioned vehicle to the last second! Fantastic beach front property, loved the outdoor lava shower! Trips out with Tala were really worthwhile, see all the best places with safety and insider knowledge. Food was great, and varied, and considering the location, reasonably priced. Every single member of staff... More
