I was a little hesitant booking here as Aggie Grey's Resort was a well-known and not extremely expensive resort like that of Sinalei or Coconuts but, I will never hesitate again now experiencing Aga Reef Resort over the weekend.
I think the only minor draw back would be the location as it is an hours drive away to Lalomanu so it would only be a resort to relax and recover not for any shopping or nightlife.
As soon as we arrived, it felt like we were at an actual resort. The reception has open doors out onto the outdoor-pool area overlooking the ocean, villas and an isolated island in the distant - truly picturesque and worthy of being photographed for a Samoan postcard.
Check-in was simple and fast with the key to our ocean view villa handed to me within 10min after the room had been pre-checked and paper work finished.
The room was beautiful, with a more than comfortable king size bed, spacious living with a flatscreen tv, desk space, huge bathroom with rain shower and a balcony overlooking the blue sea. It was truly a resort I haven't seen here in Samoa before and felt like it was about time.
Sleeping in the king bed was so comfortable that out of all the 3 hotels which we stayed in, this was the actual bed where we could sleep - it truly was a joy to be able to sleep.
Continental breakfast is included in your booking and consists of breads, muffins, fruits, spreads and cereals. I didn't realise we could order hot food until the second day we had breakfast. The continental breakfast was delicious and refreshing while sitting outdoors overlooking the beautiful ocean view.
Dinner was great and reasonably priced, we had steaks and an entree of Arancini. All dishes were delicious and presented very well. The chef did a great job and topped off the dinner meal with desert. We ordered fudge chocolate cake with lemon tart - both were just divine and reasonably priced again for a resort.
Staff are friendly and attempt to practice/speak english to you.
Overall, this hotel definitely lived up to the hype and the opinions of others - the price per night was very reasonable and its just one of the best resorts Samoa has right now that is within reach (money-wise). I recommend this hotel for those who are looking to relax and recover from their daily lives. You'll leave the resort rejuvenated without much damage to your pocket.
