We could not find anything wrong with this place. We really had the most enjoyable experience. We stayed in a garden bungalow, which the Owner explained over a drink is the origianl accommodation of the resort. The room is spacious and bright with good aircon. The toilet had a bit of a funny smell but it was truly beautiful with...

We stayed at Sinalei Resort between 23-28 December 2016. the resort itself is lovely, the fales are perfectly fine and we were lucky enough to have a beachfront fale which was perfect and very comfortable. The tropical gardens are gorgeous as is the beach and lagoon. The resort itself on the East Coast of the island which seemed to get...

We have just returned home after a lovely, relaxing 12 day stay at Sinalei and WOW is how I would best describe the resort! On arrival into Samoa we were picked up at the airport by Sinalei staff and transported to the resort - the drive goes quite quick (approximately 40mins) but you forget about the time as there is...

There was no driver to pick us up at the airport despite a confirmation so we got a taxi, which turned out fine. Check in was fine, but we were surprised to be taken on a tour of the resort before being shown to our room, as some people will have travelled many hours to get here, and it was...

What does a 5 star resort mean to you? For me it's comfort, superb service, excellent cuisine, unforgettable experiences, beautiful views, welcoming and warm hearted staff because although you're on holiday you also want to feel at home.I believe Sinalei provided this and more. Sinalei resort is located in one of the most beautiful spots in Samoa. It's on the...

My wife and I did have a nice time and it ticks a lot of boxes. Nice pool, nice rooms, good golf course for a resort and yes the staff are very loveable. There is no doubt about it. However, for the price you pay it seems to come up short. You feel like you are at the Pacific Fawlty...

Talofa! Thank you for your review and feedback. We are happy that you had a nice time here at Sinalei. We understand how you might have found the Samoan laid back culture frustrating at times. We do our best to hire staff from the local villages and training them can be challenging. As you realized, they are very friendly and...
