This was my second stay at Aggie Grey's. It's a beautiful resort with immaculate grounds and very well mannered, hard working staff.
The pool is excellent with three different depths and a swim-up bar! It's right next to a beautiful white sand lagoon so you are spoilt for choice when it comes to swimming.
The rooms are very basic and could do with a freshen up though. The painting was a bit tired and the amenities are budget. (Shampoo, soap, tea, coffee - all very cheap looking).
The TV is the old style with a big back to it. We took a hard drive hoping to plug it into the TV to watch some movies of our own choice, but there was no USB port!
The TV channels are very basic. So we ended up going to be quite early every night.
Wi-Fi is available to buy at 150 Tala per week. That's about $80 NZD.
The on-site day spa Manaia Spa is beautiful. Set in the lush trees, the treatment rooms are outside in your own private forest Fale.
The gym is well equipped but there was no air conditioning. SO HOT. But good to work off a sweat.
There isn't much to do aside from lie by the pool, eat and drink, so it was a wonderful, relaxing holiday.
The resort is next to the ferry terminal so a lot of people took day trips over to the main land Savaii where I heard the snorkelling was excellent.
We rented a car for a day and drove around Upolo and it only took an hour and a half to cross the island. We went to the To Sua Trench which is the most incredible thing I've ever seen in real life. The most beautiful swimming hole that looks just like it does in photos.
Then we went to the Sliding Rocks. We were the only ones there and it looked really dangerous. We had to come down about 100 metres of stairs to get to the rocks so we were nervous that if we hurt ourselves, it would be a long time to go and get help.
APIA town is about 40 minutes drive from the resort. It's a good place to stock up on snacks and souvenirs.
Back at the resort there are 5 restaurants on site, which sounds like a lot, but I wasn't too impressed with the food. Also, you get sick of seeing the same menus everyday. So the main disadvantage if you like food is that town is so far away so you really don't have much choice but to eat at the resort.
Kids eat free but their menu is very small and limited. They do have a Kids Club for them during the day though, which is good if you need a break.
Overall, it was good value for money, and the resort is beautiful. We had a great time.
The only thing they could improve on for me is the variety of food, a better stocked on site gift shop, and an upgrade of the rooms.
I will go back.
