Thankyou so much to everyone at outriggers. 6 of us stayed for our medical elective and had a really amazing time. We met other students at the hospital staying at other hotels and we'd definitely choose this one again. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and put on a beautiful culture show at the end to say goodbye. The...

We booked in for 8 days in Dec 2013 for the first part of our 6 week holiday and we didn't know what to expect. With a family of 5 its not easy to keep everyone entertained. We had the large family room with an ensuite, it was so spacious :-) We spent a lot of time around the pool...

I booked at the Samoan Outrigger for our first 2 nights in Samoa, and based it on reviews I had read. And I am so glad I did!!! We are a family of 5, and although check in was at 2pm, we turned up around 11am after an overnight flight from Australia, and it was raining. We didn't even have...

Since 2009 (when I wrote my last comment) I stayed at the Samoan Outrigger again in May/June 2011 and again in August/September 2013. As you might guess it IS my favourite hotel in my favourite island in this beautiful island country. I think I will go there (where else) this year and every other year and time when I will...

Talofa Ludwig, Thank you very much for your nice review. Its almost 20 years ago since the Samoan Outrigger Hotel opened its doors and one really special experience is when guests are coming back to stay with us. Some guests like yourself have been coming back for a yearly visit for many years now. We will look forward seeing you...

The staff is what makes this place so fantastic. Very friendly and helpful. The good news is that this property is now smack in the middle of Apia, which is good. But it does mean a 15 minute walk or 5Tala cab into town. But there's almost no reason to go into town ;-)

My partner and I stayed for ten days at the start and end of our Samoan holiday in November. We opted to stay in the Fale's and loved it. The atmosphere was relaxed, staff were always friendly and approachable and made us feel like they enjoyed having us there as much as we enjoyed being there. Would we stay there...

Stayed one night at the last moment in November 2013 while on a medical placement. The room was lovely and spacious but we were bitten by mozzies all night despite the flyscreens. The double bed was a foam mattress which was very uncomfortable. Shared bathrooms were clean and the breakfast was very average compared to Lynn's Getaway just around the...

We made The Outrigger our base during our six days in Samoa. We were very glad that we did and we were more than happy with our experience there.

We arrived after a long and delayed flight only to be met with a lovely genuine warm smile from Fotu. I incorrectly booked the wrong date and she accommodated us with no fuss or bother.
