Always smiling. Delicious free breakfast in the morning. Nice neat looking garden with pool and outdoor area. It seems that the place was...

Stayed a month at the outrigger and absolutely loved my time! The staff is fantastic, breakfast was delicious, and the hotel/pool is always clean. The house girls are always willing to help meet your needs and arrange taxis for your daily adventures. Can say enough about the amazing experience myself and 8 other travellers had!

My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights in August 2016 and it was an absolute treasure. The amenities are simple and sweet - comfortable and clean rooms with air conditioning and either private or a shared bathroom.

My room was really big, with an ensuite bathroom. Everything was clean, but the room was facing the street, so it was loud, and it was impossible to cool the room down. There's also a pool. Breakfast is included and nice, even some hot homemade items. The hotel is not in the center of Apia, maybe about 10 minute walk...
