Stayed in one of the fales for two nights. Good mosquito nets and rain cover. Privacy shades old and not that effective; cat able to get through and was in fale. Also, fale close together, so hear everything in other fales. Large lock box which was helpful, since you can't secure fale. Beds are two futons stacked, comfortable. Good price....

We stayed three nights and was a perfect place for a short stay. The room was basic but clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and staff sought our feedback on some new items they were trialling. Can be a bit noisey with dogs barking/traffic at certain times but the pool area and outside grounds are really lovely...

I stayed recently with a group and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 5 nights - which was a split visit with a trip to Savaii. Everything was clean, well organised and breakfast was great and we loved being able to walk up to Giordano's Pizzeria. The Outrigger is just out of town but there are taxis just across...

We needed a place to stay at short notice and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The room was basic but fine. There is a nice garden area where you can have breakfast and the pancakes were delicious. It is quite a long walk into Apia but the taxi was very cheap. There was nothing to lure us for...

We stayed at the Outrigger for 5 weeks throughout June and July and we were blown away by the fantastic location, beautiful grounds and incredibly friendly staff. Both the rooms and fales were clean, comfortable and well maintained and offer a truly Samoan experience. Staff were always keen to share advice about the island and help out with booking activities...

We stayed twice at this hotel, once in a fale and once in room number one. Fale was ok, but room number one was really uncomfortable because it was very hot and very noisy (the only window faces a road with a lot of traffic during the whole night). Also, although we had confirmed our booking for two nights over...

We stayed in one of the airconditioned apartments, but the hotel offers also samoan garden fale and not airconditioned rooms, so there is for everybody something. The best was the garden with a big pool.

We stayed at the Outrigger Hotel for several weeks and it was absolutely the right choice! It is very close to the town and with a car you are very fast on the other side of the island (we also rented a car in the hotel, which we can recommend as well!). There are several lovely restaurants just around the...
