The Outrigger is in a great location - a short bus ride to town, an easy walk to the great museum, 5 mins to the hospital if you need it and in range of some good (but not necessarily cheap) restaurants. My fale was perfect, with a deck from which to view the stars. The shared bathroom was handy and it was good to see the security guy when I visited it in the night. Breakfasts are outstanding- fruit, toast, pancakes and eggs. Staff friendly and helpful. The pool, however, is the Outrigger's best asset - clean, refreshing and wonderful on a hot, sticky day. Overall, a fine experience.

I enjoyed my stay here. Trudy and her housekeeping team, made it for me. They helped in so many ways and were always smiling and laughing. There is a wonderful social area by the swimming pool so you can relax and talk with other travelers. The breakfast is so delicious. The rooms may need a bit of updating but it's not a major.

Good location, well maintained, rooms are clean and it is pretty quiet whether day or night. Good spot to move around Apia or even a base to explore the rest of the island. Breakfast (included) was good but somehow repetitive. Friendly staff. I would not say it is good value for money, but everything is expensive in Samoa, so if you only compare with other spots in Samoa, then it probably is.

Samoan Outrigger Hotel will be your favorite place in Apia and Samoa. The hotel is absolutely beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside. Great free breakfast and a lovely pool where you can relax and cool down in warm warm Apia. The minute we stepped into the reception we felt as if we were home. Warm, friendly and very helpful staff and the sweetest owners welcomed us and showed us around. The location is perfect - the city is within walking distance and a well equipped supermarket is just across the street. Good restaurants close by. We kept coming back to this wonderful place and will again when Samoa is our travel destination again. All in all the Samon Outrigger Hotel was an outstanding experience.

We stayed here three times during our trip to Samoa. Such a nice place, with a great welcoming atmosphere. The staff are super sweet and very helpful with arranging and answering any kind of questions. Great value for money and nice rooms and fales. Very clean and tidy. Love breakfast, we would definitely come back, it became sort of our home in Apia, lovely stay 😍
