This is my second stay at Insel Fehmarn Hotel in Apia and I would stay again. The quality of the food has always been great, and it was even better this time around. You know when the food is good when the locals frequent the restaurant. All the staff at the hotel are brilliant and incredibly helpful. The rooms are dated but they are clean and house keeping is always happy to improve your stay.
The staff at the front desk are always polite and helpful and make sure that you get to where you need to go, they also look after you by making sure you don't pay more than you should for a taxi fare. They also have a complimentary shuttle that goes into town 4 or 5 times a day and drops you off at the Samoan Tourism Authority. You can also be picked up from here to get a lift back to the hotel. They will also help you to make sure you have confirmed your ride to the airport for your trip home. You can also buy LavaSpot internet cards from the front desk and coverage is pretty good on the 2nd floor.
The complimentary breakfast was excellent and filling. There was always fresh fruit, toast, freshly baked muffins, pancakes, French toast, eggs, bacon, sausages plus Samoan and regular porridge. The Insel Iced Tea was excellent and just what you need on a hot day.
This is not a resort, but more like an old fashioned family run motel with the benefits of having lots of staff on board to help you out and keep the place clean and orderly.
If you want a resort, there are plenty of other choices in Apia.
But for the prices they charge for rooms, this is an ideal place for short and long term work and research stays, also great for large and extended families. The Superior Room is great as they have new and quite air conditioning units, the garden view rooms are a little noisier. All rooms have fly screens to keep the bugs out but a few mosquitoes make there way in, however, room service has insect repellent. Small ants are about but this is a hot and humid Pacific Island so you will encounter these all over the islands irrespective of where you stay.
The pool area is small but comfortable with a shaded areas with tables to sit and read. There are also tennis courts that gets regular use by guests. The hotel is surrounded by gardens so you get to see some of the local flora and fauna not far from town.
Overall, an affordable and comfortable stay in Apia.
