We had a traditional Fale. It was rustic, but not like sleeping in the jungle. No problem with shared facility. I would have loved it if there was a small fan in the room as it would have helped with air circulation, but otherwise it was a great experience. Also, they have a security guard which roams the property 24/7.

We were only in Apia for one night to get supplies and this hotel is handy for that. The rooms are basic but clean. Staff are very friendly and the breakfast was good. Great for a one night stop with a choice of inside rooms or outdoor fales

I stayed two nights in the hotel and it was the perfect start to my Samoan vacation. The staff is very nice and friendly, and breakfast was lovely with fresh fruit and pancakes! The fales outside are really nice and they have a nice pool as well.
