There is nothing wrong with this hotel that causes it to get such bad reviews and I cannot understand how my experience having stayed twice recently is so vastly different to some of the other reviewers. You have to wonder if they actually stayed there at all.
I have been travelling the Pacific Islands on business for well over thirty years and have stayed at so many different quality hotels that obviously I have my favourites and the new Tanoa Tusitala is my hotel in Apia. I used to stay there in the old Tusitala days, then the Kitano Tusitala when it went downhill but I am most definitely back there now and so are a lot of other business travellers.
I have just stayed there for the second time since the refurbishment and the hotel was fully booked, I was lucky to get in. The staff are great, the hotel has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the rooms are beautiful. I realise that people can have bad experiences at any hotel that puts them off the place but I certainly have not had that at the new Tanoa Tusitala. In fact I cant wait to get back there next trip as the new restaurant was about to open a day or so after I left.
My advice is to go see for yourself.
