Lalomanu is by far the most beautiful beach I saw in Samoa (I did a lot of travelling around both islands) and Taufua Beach Fales is definitely an amazing place in Lalomanu to stay! The fales (both open and closed) are well maintained and located right on the incredible beach, and the prices are great value (by Samoan standards). For 70WST per person per night you get accommodation (in a non-ensuite open or closed fale) as well as breakfast and dinner both included. The food is by no means 5 star restaurant style but it's definitely tasty and filling. They were able to cater to my group's dietary requirements too which was great. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful and the younger workers are always up for a laugh.
Forget paying $300 plus for a resort (I stayed in 3 - Aggie Greys, Sinalei and Le Vasa) - Taufua is so much better value for money and so much nicer! Also, it is family owned so you are supporting the local Samoan people by staying here rather than an international resort owner. If you can't stand being without airconditioning or a private bathroom the ensuite fales have both and are only slightly more expensive. Lalomanu Beach is 100 times better than the beaches at any of the resorts I saw! If I were only allowed to spend one day in Samoa, I'd definitely spend it at Taufua.
