The rooms are decent, they have air conditioning and all have beautiful views. You are literally feet away from the hotels private beach, the hotels restaurant is also right on the beach and the food is very good. There is a shuttle from the hotel that will pick u up at the airport and u can just take the local... More

We stayed two nights in June 2014 on a combined Samoa and American Samoa trip. Very convenient location just outside the main hub with a nice pool and an even nicer beach. It is not very new, but well maintained and our room was clean with fridge, tv and a large balcony with nice view of pool and ocean. Breakfast... More

Have just returned from a short stay in American Samoa and again stayed at Sadies by the Sea. The rooms were lovely and the comfortable bed was exactly what was needed after staying at a very run down hotel in Apia. Food at the Goat Island cafe was fantastic as always. Hope to be back soon.

A hotel that makes you feel grateful to be suffering jet lag. It must be the most stunningly located hotel I've ever seen. The view from the balcony - see pics - is breahtaking. When your body clock is out of kilter staring out into the ocean makes all the pain go away. And when the sun rises over the... More

The staff is the best part of the experience they are very friendly and knowledgeable.The food is hand down the best on the island in my opinion, the menu... More

I must respond by saying quite simply: Employees have rights too! Polynesians are extremely hospitable and polite. As a fishing port we have more than our share of Romeo's seeking the affection of Island girls. It is not their nature to complain to Management of unwanted attention but rather ignore the obvious slow learner. It is noted that you did... More

We enjoyed a family trip (all adults) to Am Samoa in what is billed as the rainy season. We had enough rain to get the atmosphere but not enough rain to spoil the fun. Sadies staff met us at the airport and also provided transportation back on our departure. Flights from/to Honolulu are late at night, so Sadies offered us... More

This is a water front hotel located within walking distance to Pago Pago Harbor. The rooms are basic, with a split type noisy AC units. The restaurant offers limited selection of pretty delicious food. The service is reasonable, a bit slow, but the hotel staff are very friendly, and they always smile. The internet service gets interruptions, and is slow.

I spent four nights at this property in early November, 2013 for business, The location of Sadie's is ideal, as it is more central than the Tradewinds. This allowed me fairly easy access to the various locations across Tutuila where I needed to travel each day. In addition, the view and beach access are an extra treat. The exterior hallways... More

Thanks for the informative review. Yes, maintenance is an ongoing chore; all porches and lanais are currently being re-painted and the exterior corridors are just awaiting the arrival of epoxy paint for a much needed face lift. We are constantly striving to enhance our guest experience in American Samoa and your review is sincerely appreciated --Tom. More

Just back from seven nights in American Samoa. Glad I went but wouldn't go again. Sadie's was a great place to stay. Our room had to be no more than fifty feet from the beach. Pick a second story room away from the bar and pool. Do rent a cell phone. 20 cents a minute. Reception as good as my... More
