I picked it because we love volcanoes and lava, we were not disappointed. They gave us a self contained air conditioned unit with a fale attached with our own private lagoon! Quiet, no barking dogs and the breakfast amazing, we loved the free range eggs, fresh fruit. and mango and pineapple puree! Did I mention the free use of Kyaks and snorkelling in the lagoon. So relaxing and the staff made me feel so welcome, flowers on the beds! Bathroom basic with no hot water but we didnt find this a problem as Samoa is hot! Like a village on the moon! Felt like we were part of the family, such friendly staff and so romantic! Great location and fantastic memories! The colourful flowers and shrubs were everywhere ! No t.v if that's your thing.

Room Tip: Near the lagoon is preferrable as you get the million dollar views try and get one with the fale attached.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bayview Resort. It was incredibly welcoming and catered to our families changing needs. We couldn't understand why this isn't one of Savaii's 'hot spots'. The location is perfect with turtle swimming down the road, a lovely rocky beach with a pontoon at your doorstep, more tourist beaches 10 mins away, delicious food, free use of snorkelling and kayak gear, air-conditioning, your own fale extension and the list goes on! This is a perfect place to stay with the family, we had babies and this set up worked wonderfully for us. A portacot was provided which made life so much easier. Some things to note, the 'single room' can actually sleep three (a double and a single' and the double room can sleep four/five people (a double, 2 singles and a 1 single in the fale). We will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: Request waterfront with fale extension

We booked online via email for 300 tala a night, which in hindsight, wasn't a good idea: Every hotel we went to on Savaii that previously told me via email that they were booked, had rooms available when we asked in person once we were on island.

I was told in the email that the only room available was the air conditioned waterfront villa, so I booked, as it was the only hotel I could find with availability. When we arrived, they took us to the one that was farthest from the water and in poor repair. Sesilia told my husband that they had to give ours to the pastor (in Samoa, pastors are very highly respected). They offered to move us the following day. I was disappointed, but very tired, so just agreed to stay put. They don't tell you ahead of time that there is no hot water, and as my husband was taking his shower, the water just quit. No water at all. We also noted that the water from the tap was white. It had the appearance of skim milk, so we were careful not to get any in our mouths. There was a nice porch that was fale style with a bed and mosquito net, but the unit itself was in need of repair.

The bay where they are is not good for swimming. It reminded me of a very rocky lake. We went down the street to go to a beach: The first place (Janet's beach fales, I think) tried to charge us 50 tala just to use the beach. A little further down, we paid 10 tala each to use their beach.

There was a nice meal with good food and a fia fia (dancing sort of show) that night, and I have to say that the people on staff are very nice, and probably very good people. But again, the bait and switch thing really turned me off. We had booked for 2 nights, but left after 1 and went back to Upolu.

Stayed 4 days and we were pleased we had chosen Bayview. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel 'special' by Sesilia and Leo and their wonderful staff. A special evening was put on for my birthday that included a surprise cake and some lovely Samoan dancing. It will be a treasured memory for us both. The different Samoan food on the menu was very well presented with breakfast being a real treat. Our beach front villa with an ensuite and attached fale was roomy with all we needed and had a lovely view over the lagoon.Every day the sand area around the villas and beach was groomed and the flower gardens tended by the lovely lady helpers ( who also make wonderful lei's). The beach area may not be large but the snorkelling around the rocks can be very enjoyable. If you want somewhere that is super friendly, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced ,this would be it.

We spent 3 nights at Bayview Resort with our three teenage kids. We booked 2 airconditioned fales, one of which was 'waterfront'. The resort is located in the lavafields and does not really have a beach (some sand goes all the way to the water, but you have to walk over rocks getting in the water), which was the only thing we missed, really. Reef shoes are recommened.
The lagoon in front of the chalets is very safe and the free kayaks have been well used by our kids.
Complementary Breakfast was absolutely wonderful, the other meals very good. Staff is very friendly and helpfull, but maybe a little uncomfortable in their dealings with tourists.
Fales were very comfortable and clean.

Thank you for your review of Bayview. It has brought out the Samoan pride that shines through when we smile. We work happier knowing that you will return for another visit one day.

All the best.

Sesilia.
