This was our 2nd trip back to Seabreeze, once pre-tsunami and now post in the essentially rebuilt and redesigned resort. We love it and plan many trips in the future. We went on a special where you get $ 25 tala towards lunch and $50 tala towards dinner which I like because you know up front that most of the trip is covered. The knew rooms are lovely, simple but up market decor with the same stone bathroom which gives it a Samoan feel. They have added a covered deck area
to each Room which is great if it's too hot in the sun. The new pool is beautiful overlooking the sea with good quality deck chairs and very cool circular shaded "beds". There is a new pool side bar which is serviced most of the time and a wide range of yummy and well priced cocktails. We loved the food last time and this time it was even better. The chefs are always happy to whip up something specific too if it's not there (still dreaming of the massive plate of sashimi and oka they made us specially!). The staff are great, real people not trained monkeys. Mostly employed from the local village and always happy to chat. The beach is small but sandy for sunbathing. The tides and currents have changed post tsunami with the reef being damaged it is less like a lagoon than it was. If you want to swim out to explore the island where the fish are any time other than low tide then I recommend taking your own flippers. Also reef shoes There are snorkel sets available and kayaks
We found out eventually after fiddling with the phone settings that there is 021 and 027 reception for NZ but they also offer complimentary cellphones with pre pay credit available if u luck out.
It's important to know that Seabreeze is about an hour from Apia and from the airport. Transfers are free but if u are new to Samoa then I recommend getting a hire car for at least a few days as there are many natural wonders in Samoa and some of the best very close to Seabreeze including Lalomanu beach the the trench pool.
Finally a huge thank you to everyone at Seabreeze for giving us such a lovely holiday!
