This place we could always recommend. The Fales are nice, the food is good, an to take a shower below palmtrees is amazing. We had also there a culturell show, which is always on Friday or Saturday. The hospitality is great . Always again.

My 6 night long stay at Faofao Beach fales was one of the best experiences I've had in almost 3 years of continual travelling. The Beach fales are even more rustic and fantastic than I had anticipated. I arrived very late after a delayed flight brought me to Faleolo at around 23:30, my excitement at the inspection of my fale... More

I stayed 4 nights in a beach fale while I was here and it was not what I expected. When I arrived to check in there was no real reception just some people sitting in a large open room. When I told them I was checking in there was a general confusion. The man who took my payment had no... More

I spent a whole week of april in a single beach fale. Compared to other fales Ive seen in the islands this one is the best. Very close to To-sua (famous ocean trench) and just by the water of Saleapaga beach this fales are a dream place to stay. The whole resort is managed by a lovely and friendly samoan... More

We were lucky enough to secure a beachfront fale with urgency as Manusina had double booked us. The fale had no gate to the stairs so was unsafe for kids but if you don't have any, don't let it deter you.

Moomin678 your review seems like you let the couples with their kids away from us. I think you should mention how high of our fale floor down the sand and that is specific. Well if you not happy with your bedding style, or the mattresses too small why don't you contact us to add some other mattresses for more comfortable.... More

Best place ever, we were well looked after and treated like a member of the family, love the place & the people, couldn't have asked for better, was sad to leave. Fiafia night was so much fun, I'm am in awe about how much talent this village has, I want to go back again & again. Well worth a visit.

Arrived in the evening and was immediately welcomed and sorted into our beach fale. Didn't realize dinner was included in our accommodation package, so was grateful for that, as the only other places to dine are the more expensive resort restaurants, only accessible by car. Dinner and breakfasts were lovely. Fale was sufficient, with a mattress, pillows, lavalava and mosquito... More
