Stevenson's at Manase
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Manase
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Stevenson's has a great location with the fales right on the beach only a couple of steps from the water at hide tide. The fales are simple but comfortable and as opposed to other fales on Manase they do have their own en-suite which makes them a touch above the rest. The beds are comfy, they have mosquito nets (critical) and all the amenities. Beware though that they are the typical fale style accommodation: completely open air though you can bring down some sort of blinds that are made of banana leaves that provide a bit of privacy. The en-suites are very useful to lock in all your belongings so they are safe. You sleep with the sound of the waves and the beach in front of it is pretty. The food they serve is also very tasty though you have to order it in advance. As there are not a lot of choices in Manase it is quite a good idea. The staff were also very helpful (they even invited me to their village as I was on my own) and helped with everything they could even waiting for the bus with me so I wouldn't be alone. The trip to the ferry by bus is 1.20-30 minutes so bear this in mind if you plan to take public transportation. Taxi was 70 tala.
Perhaps the only draw back is that it was quite expensive. For sleeping with only a roof in a simple hut the price ($160-200) is a bit steep. I would nonetheless recommend them for the real fale experience with a little bit of comfort. It was a lovely experience

Room Tip: Get the fales, the other rooms are proper real rooms with walls and all the typical hotel comforts a...

We stayed just one night of a longer booking. Why? It was just not right.
We travelled with some local friends who booked a family fale on the beach.Sure,we all fitted in the space with added beds, the beach was right there, but it was basically a bit of a dump. They had many other vacant room options, which were a bit nicer, but then we thought "Best move on" and did.
The bathroom was a real mess with a shower out in the yard. Breakfast, over the road in the main part was included, but then we were charged as we never used the "included" offer.
I just was far from impressed and found lots more better options readily available.
Not what one expects in the beautiful friendly Samoa!

Room Tip: Look around; there is plenty better on offer! Kevin, Sydney NSW

Just returned from five nights at Stevensons, staying in a beach front villa. We had a very relaxing time swimming, snorkeling and generally chilling out. The staff are the real asset of this hotel. They are friendly and attentive. We ate all of our meals there, and although the choice was limited, we like fish so it didn't bother us. Loved the outdoor shower, very cute! We'll be back.

Room Tip: Villa was private and on the beach front

After reading the reviews after I had booked a villa at Stevensons, I was a little apprehensive as to what to expect. We had one of the beach front villas (not fale) and really loved it. Had everything we required, plus they had made up the fold out double couch in to a bed for our daughter. Really loved the shower being outside in the open out the back of our villa, gave it a real tropical feel. We were lucky enough to have villa 3, which is the only one that had solar heated water, so never ran out of hot water. A couple of the other villas had hot water issues & I know one took a few days to get it seen to. Units were serviced each day; beds made, towels changed, milk, tea, coffee replaced, unit was swept & mopped, and the deck out front was swept. Everything was lovely & clean. The beach was absolutely gorgeous, water warm & pristine. Unfortunately at some stage our villa was broken in to and some money was stolen. The staff were very apologetic and came and fixed the doors on all the villas to give a bit extra security. Bit of a learning curve to be extra careful when travelling, this could have happened anywhere, even in good old NZ. We didn't have a problem with ants, there were the odd few around (went in July) but nothing major. The staff were very helpful, friendly and just fantastic. Had a night where they cooked an umu which was really enjoyable & great value. We thought all the meals ranged from good to fabulous. Happy hour (or 2 hours) each day was even better value!! They even got the big screen out for us to watch the Chiefs game. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would recommend it to others and will be looking forward to returning one day. Make sure you go out on the glass bottom boat that leaves daily from the Beach resort down the road.

Room Tip: We loved the villas, self contained without being flash. Right on the beach front, relaxing & f...

We stayed in the beachfront fales. Was nice to be sleeping without walls- a bit like "glamping".
The location was nice and exceptionally quiet. Right on the beachfront with water lapping up in the lagoon just in front of the deck.
Stevensons has a beautiful restaurant and bar area which is hidden completely from view, and lush tropical gardens. Walkways are covered with thatching and the landscaping effort in the whole resort is fantastic to see.
The only hesitation, which would be easily resolved, is that it is very hard to get any information about anything. Staff are very freindly but English is not a forte with many of them. Reception is mostly left unnattended and there are no facilities in the rooms for tea or coffee making if you are partial. An information booth with local tourism brochures would be a welcome addition to the reception area so you can plan your holiday yourself.

Room Tip: Beach front fales are quite basic but beds and bug nets are good. Showers are not hot - but who need...

Beautiful beach to swim and to gaze at from your room. The food was great and staff friendly. Only slight issue was that the water pressure in the shower was low.
Aroiung the next bay had a nice place to snorkel and even saw a whale!

Great location - absolutely wonderful people.

We just stayed here for 4 nights with our 3 young children in a beach villa and had a ball. The staff are brilliant and so helpful. Don't expect luxury but who needs it in the most fantastic location. Yes there were some ants but for goodness sake its a tropical island!! Food at restaurant was gorgeous and breakfast was yummy!!! Cant wait to go back!!
