We stayed here for 2 nights as the beach was really nice as were the fales. But the staff really couldn't care if you had a good stay here or not really. It was obvious that the owners are not on sight as the staff do as little as they can possibly get away with. The food was ok, but they served mainly Western food and as I was in Samoa I wanted to eat like the locals but that option wasn't available. The bar shut at 7:30pm both nights we were there as soon as food was served and cleared without warning so we were just left on the deck with a group of friends drinkless each night. But the fales as mentioned before, the views and the beach is what gives this places by 'average' score, if it was down to the place itself it would have been a lot less. Shame really because if they made the effort this place could be very special.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same

although these are basic fales, and the food was very average, we found our stay at vacations one of the best. the fales on the water were so romantic and open to the beach, we loved lazing on the sand, snorkelling and enjoying the accomodation. we stayed here for four days and wished we booked for longer. the bar down the beach, "janes", served cocktails in a jug, so great, u could sit there drinking on the water watching the sunset and then walk back to vacations for dinner before dark. I highly recommend it, we also had dinner at stevensons which is very nice and we ended up moving there for two nights after our booking was finished at vacations, big mistake, the fales where much nicer but although it was just down the road we were swamped with mozzies and got eaten alive, even whith a mosquito net. overall vacations was a great experience. we loved being close to the water and listening to the waves.

Room Tip: definately on the water.

I stayed at Vacations for 3 nights for a short holiday with my mum. What a lovely place! Definitely one of the best holidays i've had lately.

Before we went, mum was apprehensive in sleeping in a fale so we had the bungalow. Very clean, with en-suit toilet and shower. The fales are very nice too, breezy and tidy - will definitely have a go next time when I visit. Sleep can be a bit difficult, because you're right by the beach, and the sound of waves need some getting use to. Elsie and her staff are kind and friendly, we got on very well with the girls there. They love to have a good laugh and to get to know you if you just talk to them.

The beach is gorgeous, and water is beautiful and warm. Snorkeling is great! You just have to swim out a bit to find the reef and corals. If you're adventurous and have good fins, go beyond the reef for some amazing views of the canyon and wonderful marine creatures. Get down to Falagamo and check out the dive shop there. Apart from the PADI courses and dive trips, they run a really good snorkeling trip for 60tala, where they take you on the boat to a few great snorkeling/diving sites.

The food here is good - however some traditional Samoan food would be much appreciated. Mum is a vegetarian, and the kitchen accommodated her. If you can, stay for the Sunday feast after church service - heard wonderful things about it, too bad we didn't have time.

I had such a lovely time here, it was simply too short and too perfect to finish! The people are wonderful and really go out their ways to make your stay more enjoyable. I will definitely return to this place, and recommend it to all my friends and family.

A friend and I spent 7 days at this resort on Manase Beach. If you have any respect for companion animals avoid this resort and Samoa.
Although most of the meals were ok, some were pretty awful. The female chef insisted on putting a lot of chilli in the evening meals even after I asked for less to be used and at that time we were the only guests. We would have liked more tropical fruit, Little was served.
The fales are ok, the beach lovely to look at but not a good swimming beach, The best swimming and snorkelling is at Le Lagoto, an upmarket resort not far away.
This resort insisted on us paying cash on check in for our whole stay . This is highly unusual and we felt not good business practice.

Room Tip: All fales are close together so there is very little privacy. Sleep was difficult due to the sea proximity. Effective ear plugs were necessary and I had forgotten to take them.

A wonderful family break in authentic fales on a beautiful lagoon. Every tala spent here benefits the local community directly. The food is also excellent.
I cannot understand the negative reviews as everyone was so open and honest and above all devout. Please be culturally sensitive here: this is a unique spot to be treasured. We would return in a flash.
