We stayed here 3 nights, 2 nights in a room and one night in a fale. The room was big enough with a ceiling fan, no airco. The shower was the only shower we had in Samoa that also had hot water. The breakfast was good. Also each morning pancakes and eggs. When we slept in the fale, we were... More

The style of accommodation is what I would call a guest-house with various accommodation options available. A place where conversation with fellow travelers flows readily especially in the dining areas and pool-side. I stayed 4 nights and during that time staff could not do enough for me. Extended breakfast times and a seemingly endless supply of great coffee surrounded by... More

We stayed at The Outrigger for 5 nights in the family room and it was great. The staff were lovely and the breakfasts filling. We stayed in the family room which consisted of 2 doubles and a single and we provided our own cot. The kids found the beds comfortable and slept well. Ceiling fan helped with the heat although...

Overall I found the Outrigger quite basic, the first room I was put in had only a bed , side light, a over head fan and a shower with a used bar of soap. The road noise was terrible. I was moved to a better room with air conditioning, tv, fridge, side light, phone and a safe. The ranch slider... More

A well priced hotel for the accommodation on offer. However, it could do so much better with just a little bit of thought and expenditure without changing its character or primary market. Some examples, more variety at breakfast (effectively no choice and same thing every day), more efficient air conditioning, more comfortable seating in the lobby and by the small... More

I only stayed one night here (with my three children) on our first night in Samoa. We had hoped to stay longer but there was some confusion around the bookings .... We stayed in a fale in the lovely gardens, and the kids enjoyed the pool, which is a decent size. We all thought the breakfast was awesome, there was... More

The highlight of this establishment was the staff. We arrived at 0500AM and presented to the hotel after a long overnight flight. The staff were happy to offer a free early check in to allow us to get some rest. This was really appreciated by us. The hotel offers breakfast, which was simple, but satisfying. The location is close to... More

A long trip from Maui but interesting to see this remote part of the world. The hotel was fine and so was the food. the whole town was clean and we did a trip around the island to see the local trades and crafts. Well worth a visit
