Fair 4.0
Bad experience
The lady who checked me in was very unpleasant. I asked her to book my return airport transfer which she did not do. Then she mixed up the date of our early breakfast before the transfer. We were woken up at 5am one day too soon. I placed an wake up call the day before to test if they do it becaise i was worried that they would not. It turmed out that they did not wake us up as I suspected. However Helen the duty manager did her best to deal with the complain.

Will always go back if there's room
Personally I rate Tanoa the best hotel still. I stayed at Millenia and Taumeasina, so I will only compare against these two others. If Tanoa is not available then Millenia then Insel is the next options. Tanoa is spacious, has better food menu and variety compared with Taumeasina, the pool is beautiful. Friendly and helpful staff, great location, clean. What it maintains that is very attractive is the Samoan culture in the building walkways, roofing, post structures. This is what attracts the Ozzy'a and Kiwi's. Just love it, good value for money.

Good 6.0
Everything at Tanoa was amazing apart from the pool not being open. It wouldve made it easier if it was cause We were very busy so had no time to actually go and use the complimentary offer that was given. Im kind of angry thought cause I paid full price for the room and when I went to ask for a pass to the pools i was told that Taumeasina is toooo packed at the moment. Service was good though, greeted genuinely if only it remained that way throughtout our journey with you. I will not be staying there again only because I wasnt offered a small little refund for not using the pool but was advertised when I paid full price but later was told via email. This is false advertising.

Travelled with three kids nice room
Travelled as a couple with three young kids, the staff were very professional and friendly. The swimming pool was great, kids pool was good under the shade a bit slippery around the edges though. Our room was cleaned daily, although it was a bit dusty on arrival. Water Milk Coffee was topped up everyday which was nice gesture. buffet breakfast was nice too the eggs were cooked to your preference. Great location it’s is close to everything shops and supermarket, right across the hotel there is a playground for kids Can’t fault anything just the dust in the room on arrival would definitely stay here again and recommend to everyone

Oasis in Apia
For our first time in Samoa, this hotel was great. Felt like a bit of an oasis in the town of Apia with gardens and covered walkways. Very convenient location - walking distance to the waterfront. Staff were helpful and friendly. Highlight was certainly the Fia Fia night! Complimentary breakfast very good with made to order omelettes and dinner menus also very good - especially the fish curry. The rooms are a little tired and could use a facelift.
