Sadly we only stayed 3 nights and then 6 nights at Seabreeze resort on Upolu, in hindsight we wished we had done the reverse. From the amazing beach front bungalow, the picture perfect beach and wonderful relaxed nature of the whole resort this for us was as near to a relaxed paradise as you will ever get.
The restuarant is simple and adequate but dont expect huge choice every night but what is on the menu changes daily and is fresh. The swimming is good except at low tide when coral is exposed and you are asked not to swim at low tide anyway, no swimming pool at resort but we found the cold shower if needed when tide was out kept you cool.
A great little Pizza place across the road if you feel like a change of diet.
Getting to the resort can be a bit of a mission, a $20 tale 10 mins taxi ride to ferry terminal from airport , either a 1.5 hour ferry or 1 hour depending on which one is going , all for $12 tale and then a $70 1 hour taxi ride to the resort.
The ferry, if it is the open car ferry has no seating and can be full on exposure in the sun if you have just arrived, the larger and faster closed in ferry is certainly the best option. Our only suggestions for improvemnts in the resort would be more comfortable loungers are needed on beach as wooden ones with thin squabs ae not that great after an hour or so.
Dont come here if you want a night life or a fast paced holiday as you will be in bed early as everything shuts down by 9.30- 10pm , perfect for some but guess not everyone, for us it was paradise!
