The essentials of living were met very well. Rooms were clean. Spacious enough. Bathroom met the basic needs. clean. love the hot water. it can go on for days and not turn warm. Split unit AC is good in rooms. plus sealing fans. however no tv and telephone in room.

I stayed here for 4 weeks during my medical placement - it's only a 5 minute walk from the hospital and 2 minutes from Lynn's supermarket. The staff and family were extremely helpful and welcoming and had information about the hospital as well. Breakfast included a selection of weetbix, cereal, fresh papaya and pineapple, boiled eggs, bread + jam and... More

I spend, 6 days in Tatiana and I cannot believe how poor the owner handle situations. The staffs were great n very helpful, but the way they were treated is not fair. Anyway, the owner needs to put what his preaching online into practice. Even thou my kids enjoy the swimming pool but it was unfortune that the owner's son... More

Tatiana Motel - I spent 6 weeks there as a medical student doing my elective at the local hospital. Whilst I was there, I boarded at Tatiana Motel for the duration of 6 weeks.

I spent 4 weeks of my medical elective staying in tatiana's motel last year and I honestly could not rate it high enough. Right from the moment we were picked up from the airport (complimentary! ) until the moment we left we were made to feel completely at home. I stayed in a two bed room which was clean and... More

I spent 4 weeks in Samoa on my elective in July 2015 and had the pleasure of staying at Tatiana Motel for that time. This is the perfect place to stay if you're coming to Samoa for your elective.

I had a wonderful time on elective here, it was only 10 minute walk for the hospital, a 5 minute taxi ride to town and a major place for medical students to stay. At one point during my stay the motel was full of around 30 medics. It was an extremely fun elective. Rooms were basic but very large and... More

Stayed at Tatiana for 4 weeks - would recommend it to anyone looking for good-value accommodation in a great location in Apia. Comfortable, clean rooms with air conditioning, fridges and bathrooms/showers. Breakfast is provided everyday, with lovely fresh fruit and if the family are having a special breakfast they will usually give you some too (banana fritters!!) What really sets... More

If you are heading to samoa - you must enjoy some of the friendly, caring hospitality that Tatiana's offers. This is a family business and the care taken of those staying there is fantastic. Conveniently located near some good restaurants, and supermarket, plus a short taxi ride to downtown Apia. Highly recomended! Thanks - Patrick and Shona!
