This review is about the Restaurant attached to Taufua Beach Fale's not the accommodation. We did not stay in their accommodation. We visited the Restaurant for lunch, it was a disaster, we will never return or recommend this restaurant. Several staff sitting around doing nothing whilst a few did all the work, not a good image to portray even for... More

We stayed in a ensuite enclosed fale so take note that the toilets are across the road for those without toilets. The weather was horrible but the beach is still beautiful. The food at breakfast and dinner is plentiful and I am amazed what they can get out at one time. However lunch is incredibly slow so you're probably looking... More

My friends and I travelled here twice now. (In 2011 and this year)... we ordered chicken and chips which was served with a drumstick and a chicken back coated frame. It took over an an hour to receive our order i 2011 but this year was just far too long - 1 hour 26 minutes! Can the owners of this... More

We stayed in a closed beach fale here which was really nicely set out with an actual bed, fan, light and porch with a couple of chairs. Although we were one row back from the ocean we could still see it from our fale. The food was tasty and plentiful, the staff were friendly, the cocktails in happy hour were... More

What a beautiful place to wake up each morning, looking over one of the nicest beaches in the world! The beachside fales were comfortable, literally right on the beach but still felt private. They were fine in the rain and felt nice and safe. The beach itself is amazing and its easy to spend hours in and out of the... More

I have just returned from 3 nights at Taufua. We were a group of 11 celebrating my birthday and we all agreed Taufua was our highlight. It is very laid back, with a relaxed vibe on a beautiful beach. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and a security guard on patrol each night. We felt very safe and secure... More

After placing an order for two at lunch time we had to wait over an hour before getting our meal. We had to enquire a couple of times about the whereabouts of our food and both times we were told they were cooking it. There were no apologies for the delay and we then had to cut short some of...

I went for a solo trip during summer 2015 to Samoa. I was expecting to stay only one night at Taufua, but in the end stay for 3 nights. Amazing place, secure and great service. Fale well maintained and in front of the beach. Good price for Vailimas and food is an asset. There is a mix of simplicity with... More

Around this time last year - my partner and I spent a night here. It was hot and we were always coated in sweat...but the vailimas served by the amazing staff was perfect in combating the heat. Thank you guys for being fantastic. We had to rebook at first because of an earthquake that happened in Chile, and we were... More
