My husband travels to Samoa for work regularly and needs to stay in the township close to his work. For businesss travel in the township this would be the best hotel to stay at. The rooms are very nice - large and modern fittings, great beds and good showers.
We stayed for 4 nights and the housekeeping was marginal, the washbasin and floor in the bathroom was never cleaned, our bathmat and handtowel were taken away the first day and we never got any back for the remaining stay - we did get our 2 towels replaced and bed changed each day.
On their website they have listed in the activities section, kidsclub, tennis court, internet and a gym, they have all these things onsite but NO GYM. When I went down to use the gym the first morning I was told there is no gym on site it is down the road in town. The tennis court is in great condition but unfortunately I din't have anyone to play with.
The pool is great - a nice setting with good shade available and very comfortable loungers. The entire pool is spotlessly clean. There is a nice bar by the pool that serve great cocktails and a good selection of meals. The breakfast buffet is not great but you can order of the a la carte which was okay.
All the staff were very friendly and even though I have complained about a couple of things I don't want to take anything away from the resort because I think they are things that can be easily fixed.
We really enjoyed Samoa it is a fantastic place for a holiday, we went over to Sinalei which was really beautiful and we had a fantastic meal. We also went to many cafes and restuarants while we were there and one that I really enjoyed was Paddles - their raw fish dish Oka was amazing.
Overall a good resort and I'm sure it will just keep on improving.
