FaoFao has been my home since i arrived in May, and as a long term resident, I have experienced island living with all its ups and downs, and its an experience i shall remember and treasure always. Koloseta and the family have a gem of a place, with the potential to be one of the greatest and successful beach fales...

Good location with fales right on the beach and a very good price for breakfast dinner and accomodation. They also do a great cultural show on wednesday and saturday nigts which is a good thing. The snorkeling area is average because of the tsunami 5 years ago that killed everything. The fale got the only thing that really matters: a...

Friendly staff and well cooked food. Fales need a bit of maintenance, (like the holes in the roof fixing) but the bathrooms are in a terrible state. There is nothing wrong with basic facilities, but they should be kept CLEAN, and these are not. Locks are missing on the ladies loos and the men's showers have no curtains at all....

We booked in advance to stay at Faofao beach fales, and it did not disappoint! The staff are all super friendly and it was great having a chat and getting to know them all. The price includes breakfast and dinner which is a great deal. The food is tasty and plentiful. The beach fales are right on the ocean. Basic...

I arrived here just by chance, intending to stay only a few nights, but found the place so friendly and enjoyable that I stayed seven nights and even the had to force myself to move on. The fales are good and the beach superb, wonderfully relaxing. The restaurant /entertainment area across the deserted road is wonderfully set up for the...

We stayed just three nights between other places in Samoa and had a wonderful, relaxing time. The fale was comfortable, especially given the price, and you can't beat being right on the sand! Fiafia night was fun, and the family running the place very friendly and helpful. The food was decent, too. Thanks Koroseta and family!

My friend and I recently spent four days at Fao Fao. It's a very simple place, but that's what made it so good for the soul. We had all these plans to do this and that but fell in love with the beach and it's lagoon and spent most of our time laying around and swimming just switched off from...

I visited Faofao with a friend and we stayed for one week. During our time there the hosts were friendly and hospitable, and they were always happy to help out with our requests. The fales are comfortable and spacious - we stayed in a two bed set-up with plenty of room for our luggage and lounging about - and the...

As a family we loved FaoFao Beach Fales. Like most fale style resorts you are immediately made to feel at home and the staff are super friendly.

I went to faofao for one night away from work. It was great to have a fale by myself, lay on the beach and relax and then get an early night sleep hearing the waves lapping outside my room. The place is very basic, and i knew this before arriving- it was exactly what i was after. My car had...
