Drove down the road after paying 20 taka to the village chief to find a very rude resort owner demanding another 5 taka! Not cool! We offered to buy lunch bit he refused!! Very rude and not hospitable! Return to paradise resort close by appears better value for money as they

Apologies for any confusion, but the 20 Tala charged at the end of the road is payable to the village and not to Matareva. The 5 Tala we charge per person is to cover the cost of keeping the resort clean, and the fresh water bathroom facilities that we provide. We hope that anyone using TripAdvisor would understand this, as it is often mentioned on this forum. We are always happy to waive the 5 Tala fee for anyone who is wishing to purchase lunch, and we have no record of a time when anyone would have been refused this. Hopefully you will visit us again one day so we can share our lovely resort with you.

We just came back from Matareva and loved it ! Perfect location & staff & fales & water & beach & quiet ! 3 klms down a dirt road - go slow ! Not much internet reception, probably a good thing ! Hire a car in Samoa - roads are very quiet and easy to navigate - gives you a lot

We had a simple yet beautiful beach fale with spectacular view. Staff were friendly, they even have a bar and offer quite a few activities, like pool, table tennis, boules, snorkeling at night, giant clams,etc.

My family went to Matareva Beach Fales today for a day trip and it was stunning. The beach was aqua blue, white powdery sand with amazing snorkelling. We took bread with us to feed the fish so the kids could get up close to the marine life (kids loved it!). I would recommend

We spent 8 days at Matereva Beach Fales escaping the cold wet weather in NZ. The beach is beautiful and safe and plenty of great walking tracks. The staff were awesome - and it was awesome having the work away volunteers from all over the world organising the check in, website,

How do you travel from the Airport to this resort? Has anyone used the local bus service?
Hi Myscha. sorrry for the late reply. We do airport transfers for the price of 100wst It will be difficult with the bus, and it will not take you all the way to our resort. hope to see you here at matareva :)

Hi, how much would a taxi cost from the airport to matareva fales? Or what would be the cheapest option?
Talofa, and thanks for your message, the taxi from the airport will be about $100 to $120 Samoan tala, but can pick you up from the airport only for $80 tala, which is cheaper than the taxi..Let me know what you prefer. All the best. Kind Regards, Fiauu

"in summer if you're staying for several nights I'd advise booking a cabin with air con."
"fale's are great as you are on the beach but they do have cabins that have air con and separate shower and toilet."
"Best Views, Heaven, Blue Beach, Best snorkelling"
"we upgraded to a Fale with fan, A/C and bath since we could walk steps to the beach anyway- very comfy"
"All rooms are on the sand looking at the ocean."
$80 - $127 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
