"Beautiful resort, nice fales, free snorkeling - food & beverages bit expensive"
This review has been long time coming,just couldn't get around to it. Hubby and I went for our 1st anniversary. No special treatment, treats or extras for that though - got good discount form the management earlier at booking time which we were happy about. The resort is very beautiful and the people servicing the guests are very friendly too - special mention to Joe on the front desk and they guys taking care of the snorkeling equipment shed. We went in April so the heat was unbelievable, nothing prepared us for that - however the beauty of the place compensated. We spent a lot of time in the pool sipping beer. Some positives: Fales are gorgeous on the beachfront, bathroom is good too with an indoor and an outdoor one, serviced daily,free snorkeling gear and kayaks, friendly staff, option to go to the bungalows side for slightly cheaper food options, great place to swim and snorkel, free foot massage on arrival, the hosts Gavin and Lou were pleasant on the few occasions we got to have a chat. We got a song sung to us when we left, very sweet gesture. Very courteous and helpful staff.Do venture to the bungalows side of the resort for a change in food and have drinks at the bar on the jetty, its more picturesque and I think cheaper too. For our departure we were given a day room for the hours before our flight at a very good rate on the bungalows side of the resort, which was much appreciated. Hire a car and do go some of the other beaches (lalu mano and the waterfalls), going to city is useless as there isn't much there anyway. Now negatives: Expensive food, OK breakfast, need a car to go anywhere at all, spa treatments quite expensive, wifi is a nightmare so please please get a true blue SIM card when you land from the airport. We didn't do that so had to buy card from the reception which was way more expensive and didn't work in the fales unfortunately, worked in the restaurants and other areas - signal issues. Would have liked a few more snacking options in the menu - by the end of our 8 days stay we had eaten just about everything. Umbrellas in the rooms would be nice (not a biggie though, however I did leave mine behind by mistake). We had a great trip overall, just sitting in our fales having beers watching the ocean in the afternoon was lovely-snorkeling and kayaking was fun too. The food was OK though.The fia fia night is good, however we couldnt make it as the time was changed unannounced while me and hubby were out during the day. We thought we could make it as it was due to start at 7:30 but they started at 6pm. To be fair we weren't charged for it as a result, which is a consolation - however would have liked to see it, we came when it was over. The resort however is expensive for everything but I suppose Samoa is expensive - the people who drove us to and from the airport were lovely too Pati and Sue. Make sure you tip the waiting staff well as they don't make a lot of money and work really hard and are very courteous and kind. A little goes a long way. They are grateful even if you leave a little tip and I think they deserve it. Overall we had a great trip and may return a few years later.
We only stayed here one night but we enjoyed ourselves. Most people probably stay here for several days or at least week. Basically people come here for the resort life. There is a swimming pool, a private beach and they make kayaks and snorkeling equipment available for the guests. The staff were very polite and friendly at all times and you will probably meet the owners who are also very nice. The food here is good but it is quite expensive. Essentially you are paying a premium to eat here at the resort. There is not much near the resort so they're not many dining options. As for getting here, you can take a taxi from the airport but that will cost you 150 tala ($60 US). If you are feeling more adventurous and you have some time in your hands, take the public bus. The schedule is a bit of a joke and we waited nearly 2 hours for a bus to arrive. However, it only cost eight tala to return to downtown Apia and it was a great and fun way to travel. No free wifi but that is par for the course for Samoa. Rooms are approximately $200 US per night.
"Drop what you're doing and get there now"
Saletoga Sands is a triumph of someone's vision for an intimate and charming resort. The rooms are new, functional and clean. The outdoor showers are a treat while the pool area and pool bar are perfect. There is a great inflatable water park for the kids right next to the sundowner Landing bar that is out in the harbor. Perfect to watch the sun go down before dinner while the kids swim. The food is very good and even more reasonable. Often the meals were less than if we were in Auckland. At the end of the stay the room bill was 40% of our last tab at the Hilton Fiji. Try the steak, the Poke Fish and the Koko rice breakfast. The resort is 5 mins from the impressive Trench and 30mins from Lalumanu Beach where you can take a day trip for a swim and eat lunch with a couple of Vailimas. Both are must do activities. The crown jewel of Saletoga is the authentic support from the staff. Because the resort is a key employer of the village they really want the best for the guests. Nothing seemed a problem and when we had a minor issue, it was fixed promptly. Saletoga is a relief from the impersonal and forced hospitality that has crept into parts of Fiji. Congrats to Gavin and Luis for creating and running a great resort. There are the nicest little details everywhere (like the carvings on the posts supporting the decks) that shows the love and detail that have gone into the place. I don't write many reviews but this place has compelled me to. We'll be back......next week.
"Nice place for winter escape"
Nice place to stay for several days with children. +: spasy rooms, nice beach, snorkeling gear for free friendly staff -: expensive food (+50% more than in good restiurant in Apia) very basic breakfast- good way to force quests to have expensive lunch asap borring if it's raining no TV in the rooms
We stayed in the "Ocean View" room which was a bit of a stretch with only a little peak, it would be better described as a Garden View room. That said we loved the situation of the room in a quiet part of the resort. The room was nice and big for 2 adults and one child. The bathroom is nice and big and there is an outdoor shower which is fantastic. The place was always kept nice and clean, the garden is beautiful, although the concrete paths can get slippery after rain. The setting and vibe of this place is wonderful. Ocean and beach are perfect with use of kayaking and snorkelling gear a great offering. There is even some blow-up play ground for the kids (and fun loving adults) to enjoy. The staff are so so wonderful. Kind, funny and always a smile which is a great reflection on the owner's effort to create a happy place. Fia Fia night, which is performed by the staff themselves, is great fun and definitely worth being there for that night. The menu is good with lots of variety and an offering for kids, and chef was accomodating for my husband, a coeliac. However if we slept in sometimes the fruit had gone and wasn't fully replenished. We hired a car one day from the resort to explore the local sights and that was a great thing to do. Just book a day ahead. Very reasonably priced. We stayed 5 nights and will definitely be back. EXTRA NOTES: This place is an hour + from the airport so it was a bit of a hike with a small child after a long flight from Oz, however it was definitely worth taking the effort to arrive at such a fabulous place. Captain, our mini bus driver was very funny and gave a running commentary as we drove there. Cold water and a cold towel as we piled into the mini van was a lovely touch. Sandwiches on arrival close to midnight was a lovely touch.
