We stayed at the Samoan Outrigger Hotel for 4 nights. After reading the previous reviews, I must admit that the reality was a lot different from my expectations.
We stayed in an ensuite room with airconditioning. The room was very basic... the toilet continued to overfill and ran all day and night, the airconditioning (don't know how people can cope without it!) was ancient and noisy, heavy footsteps from the floor above and the barking dogs on the street definitely impacted on my sleep and general enjoyment of the property.
The Samoan Outrigger does have a couple of redeeming features. The pool was a great way to cool down and the included breakfast, although very light, was nice with tropical fruit, toast with butter and jam, coffee or tea. We also met some nice fellow tourists on the deck overlooking the pool in the evening.
I think that budget travellers and large groups would find the Samoan Outrigger a good option, with a communal kitchen and bbq. However, if you like a few comforts and a really relaxing Samoan holiday... maybe look elsewhere.
