It was a very private and quiet location.. though they were doing some building work so that spoiled the peace for me.

We definitely had an awesome time staying here . We stayed for 4 nights. The breakfast was delicious. The rooms were clean . The staff were awesome. Would definitely come back here and stay again. I think the only downfall was we paid 30 tala to use the washing machine in block 200 and it didn’t use the powder we put in. Also the dryer didn’t dry our clothes. Other than that everything was perfect 🙂

Rooms were very nice & clean. Staff were friendly. Unfortunately the ordered food was not up to standard but buffet breakfast was good. We didn’t receive clean towels to the afternoon. Would return if food improves.

Close to all the ministries and organisations we needed to visit. Great conference facilities. Good breakfast. Lunch and dinner menu was a bit repetitive when you're staying there for a week.

Lovely hotel in the centre of Apia

Pros: Close to town and amentities, the pool area and gardens. Plenty of parking if you have hired a car
Location: Central Apia, close to Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, flea market, bus station
What a lovely place to stay - more like an oasis. Room very comfortable, the gardens are very well kept, the pool area fabulous and the staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The Fia Fia cultural show and dinner on Wednesday nights was very entertaining and reasonably priced. Not to be missed!
