Our family (2 kids 12 and 16) is travelling to Samoa in November 2009 for lots of snorkelling, scuba and beach relaxation. Have been reading lots of reviews/forums and at this stage we are looking at a few days in Upolu and a few days in Savaii. Not sure about where to stay in Upolu but like the look of Tanu Beach Fales in Savaii. Are there shops handy for cold drinks (beer, wine, etc) that you can take back to your Fale and can you keep them cold? Or do you have to go to a bar/resort? (Nothing like sitting on the beach with a vino at Sunset!). Also can anyone comment on the food at Tanu Beach Fales? One fussy teenage child to feed! We are happy with the basic accommodation, but I'm a bit concerned about food and drink options.
