The resort itself is beautiful. Ocean views from almost everywhere. Views towards the centre of the island provide a beautiful image of one of the huge mountains. Plenty of places to rest and enjoy the views and weather.
No good for snorkelling. We were told that the tsunami and cyclone had washed out the reef around the resort, so when we were there it was all muddy and cloudy and nothing to see. But the water temperature was beautiful and you could venture out on a complimentary canoe/kayak and the water did clean up there further out you went.
Lagoon Fale was beautiful. Large, spacious, extremely comfy bed. Small fridge and kettle provided. Air con helped on those very hot days and nights, but the rooms aren't insulated. Had beautiful sunset views everyday!
Food was average and expensive. Over cooked fish. When you look at the exchange rate to Australian Dollars, the average food price was $30 - $50 AUD - and the food just wasn't up to that standard.
A perfect resort if you want to spend most of your time in the one place. Not much to do near-by. Apia is about an hour away by taxi and bus.
Very helpful staff, managers speak great English and know the island well. Some language barriers with other staff, and if one of them is in a bad mood, you get bad service.
