"Beautiful country and resort"
Spent a week in Samoa at this resort and it was amazing. We organised transport through Saletoga from the airport and this was by far the best option as the Samoan roads are not great. The driver who is called the captain explains samoan culture, teaches you some samoan words and gives you tips of what to see and do in Samoa. The resort is beautiful, we stayed in the hotel section and the room and bathroom are quite large, also had a little balcony. Rooms are clean and serviced daily and fresh water put in the fridge every day. The food is good, they have a big vegetarian menu and specials every night and 2 restaurant to choose from. Cocktails and beers and cheap and they do a happy hour every night. Highly recommend the fiafia night. The pool is nice and they have a swim up bar and the beach is amazing! beautiful clear water and good snorkelling, a lot of the coral is damaged from the tsunami but there is heaps of fish to see. We hired a car from the resort which was $145 tala which is like $80 AUD. There aren't many roads in samoa so you can't get too lost and everything is close by its like 1 hour to the other side of the island. You can do day trips through the resort though and they do all the tourist attractions. The staff are lovely and seem to enjoy working there, some of them got to know our names and gave us tips on what to see in Samoa. Beautiful place to stay would definitely go back and would love to hire an ocean front villa next time.
"Nice little break away."
Just came back after having a week away in Samoa. First of all...What a beautiful place.. Arrived at 5.30am and was met at the airport by Captain (the resort driver). A lovely man who gave us the rundown on island life, a few Samoan words to learn and a running commentary on things to do and see. Our room was available to check in which was great. Dumped our bags and went straight to breakfast then off to bed for a few hours. Spent the afternoon chilling out around the beautiful resort. Next day hired a car and decided to drive up to Apia to go to the sliding rocks, have a look around town and stock up on snacks. Car hire was $145 for the day. Car was great and no issues. Take a map with you - there is only basically one road around the rim of the island and one through the centre, so you can't really get lost although there are hardly any street signs in Apia and not all villages are marked on the map. Decided to drive the East Coast road back to the resort. Really fun and beautiful scenery. Next day hired the car again and went to the Sua Trench. Such a beautiful place. Definitely go for a visit, it's so close to the resort. Decided to drive the west side of the island and cut through the middle on the way home. The hotel does also does tours to some places. Had the next few days at the resort and was told by staff that there was wedding on on the Sat night but not to worry about noise as it was down away from everyone except the hotel guests, and that's why it's down that end of the resort. As we were staying in the hotel section, we were a little worried about the noise but honestly we hardly heard a thing. Hired the car again and drove back up to the ferry terminal to go across to savai'i. There was some confusion about taking the car across on the ferry. Turns out that it is cheaper to hire a car from the resort, leave it at the wharf and then hire another car in Savai'i (to get the car on the ferry was to expensive). I did post a question on here about the car and ferry and the owner said exactly what I just stated but mentioned that there was travel guide in Savai'i to take us around but the reception staff had no idea who we were talking about but they organised for a car hire place to meet us at the ferry with a car so it worked out well. The Lava fields are well worth a visit as well as the markets. The scenery in Savai'i is stunning. Self driving around both islands is definitely the way to go. There are no shops close by the resort that you could walk to and buy supply's but the resort does have a little shop. Meals were very nice. Part of our deal was that we had breakfast and dinner included which made it easy at dinner! They have a set menu and and a specials board. Certainly a lot of choice at dinner and all yummy! Breakfast was pastries/cereal/toast - not really my thing but you could order from the menu for bacon/eggs etc. You can order snacks around the pool during the day as well. Everything we had was beautifully cooked. All the staff (from reception to garden staff) were all lovely. There was one young lady who we clicked with (Sorry we didn't get her name) she was waitress at night in the main restaurant and sometimes in the bar at the pool. She seemed to really love her job and it showed. All staff would have a chat and give you any suggestions of things to do. As mentioned we stayed in the hotel section of the resort. The room was massive as was the bathroom. Was cleaned each day. Sheets were changed every third day and towels only when you left them on the bathroom floor (which is a great idea). Only little issue was when we arrived there was a packet of opened biscuits on the bench and some else's undies in the cupboard!! The safe was locked when we arrived with no instructions and we asked three times for someone to look at it but that never happened so we ended up leaving it. The PowerPoint which the jug was plugged into did not work either so we ended up moving it not the bathroom to use. We were hardly in the room so it was not a huge deal. The TV does not pick up a signal but they have a huge selection of DVDs in reception that you borrow - some oldies but goodies! Be aware that the wifi is hardly non exisistant. you need to purchase a card from reception which you then use. The writing on the card is tiny so it took us a few goes to read the username and password and the signal was not to strong in the room, it was better to go and sit in reception. Big apologies again for scaring the security guard at reception the morning of checkout - it was 3.00am when we walked in with our suitcases, he was not aware that anyone was checking out at that time - neither was our transport - a quick phone call to Captain and we were on our way after about half an hour. We did triple check when we settled our account the night before. The resorts snorkelling is great fun. The best place is just below and around the jetty and just out from the boat ramp. They offer free use of canoes and paddle boards (Never been on one before and so much fun - even had the boat shed staff member laughing). Overall our stay at the resort was fun-filled, relaxing and no stress. We will definitely be back by ourselves, not sure if we would bring our two older teenagers with us, it's probably more catered to couples or families with younger children.
"Nice spot, awesome staff"
Had a nice stay here, really nice spot and lovely staff. It's quite far down the far side of the island, away from Apia and some of the other tourist spots, but still very drivable to everywhere else on day trips (plan to hire a car for a few days) and is nice and close to a few waterfalls, Sua Trench and Lalomanu beach. It's the quieter more picturesque side we thought. Easy to spend most days just at the resort alone without wanting to venture, snorkels/fins, kayaks and paddleboards available for free to explore up and down the beach. A pretty small and simple beach when the tide is out (as with everywhere in Samoa, better to wear watershoes, can be some sharp stones and coral), nice poolside area and awesome little jetty bar for evening cocktails and cheap beers. Only minor things to note: cars for hire through the resort could do with a service, especially on the brakes, 2/3 of our hires felt a bit rickety (although roads in Samoa are pretty slow anyway so it didn't matter too much). Reasonably priced though and easier to get and return to resort rather than from Apia. Breakfast wasn't amazing, a simple continental breakfast but seemed to run out of the more popular foods pretty early on in the morning, so be in quick to get the good stuff. The Airport shuttle service, although a nice introduction to Samoa from the lovely driver (the Captain), but it was a bit expensive...better off to get a taxi if you have more than 2 people, even just for the trip back to the airport. All in all we felt it was quite well priced, nothing flashy just a nice relaxed spot with good people and a good vibe.
Back to work today, our family of 5 had 8 days to try and chill at the Saletoga. Good stuff first: The grounds are beautiful, we are keen gardeners and it was clear to see the huge effort that was put into landscaping. The range if tropical plants was excellent, this also supported lots of skinks and gheckos that kept our 3 kids occupied on ghecko catch and release trips. The room was really nice and comfortable, at first we were unsure of whether we were in the room grade that we had paid for. The Saletoga listed our room as beach view villa, I could see the ocean from the deck but the villa 118 is no where near the beach....this has its advantages though. Some staff are beautiful natured people that made the stay great. Now for the few things that did irk us a bit: We are a cycling family, the Saletoga has 2 bikes available for hire. 1 had no brakes and was not available. The other bike and I headed out to check the island out.....totally unsafe bike that desperately needs a good service. Did not try again. So, because the bike is knackered we tried the gym....the equipment has no way to increase resistance so that was not tried again. Restaurant: At first it seemed ok, after a few days the food gets boring and seems excessively expensive for what is served. Breakfast: The food at breakfast is pretty good, just needs to have coconut more often (only 1 day of 8 had coconut available at breakfast) The resort is remote, this makes an escape for other food at another resort a bit of a job, still worth hiring a resort rental and exploring other dining options. The cocktails are not value for money. I dislike being referred to as a number.....I have a name! 8 days and the staff can remember my room number but not my name. No tv. We utilised the dvd library but found that most were not usable. There are more things but time is short. We enjoyed Samoa, do a tour with a local tour company and see Samoa! Would we go back to Samoa - Yes. Saletoga - No.
"Canâ€™t wait to go back!"
We had an amazing time from start to finish! We were collected by Captain Pati from the airport, greeted with a smile, cold flannel and bottle of water. The drive to the resort is about an hour away but it soon goes quick as captain keeps you entertained with his great sense of humour, knowledge of the island and Samoan urban legends. Thank you capt canâ€™t wait to see you again! We arrived late at night but weâ€™d thoughtfully been left sandwiches so we didnâ€™t go hungry. Our room was clean and nicely presented with everything youâ€™d need. Breakfast is amazing, way more than what youâ€™d expect for a usual continental breakfast. The food we ordered for lunch and dinner was nice too, it was more expensive than I thought it would be but no more than what youâ€™d spend in New Zealand I suppose, youâ€™d probably need to budget $70nzd for food per person per day to ensure you had enough(not including drinks)Iâ€™d recommend bringing snacks from nz as everything is imported over there and you pay over the odds for things. Happy hour at the landing bar from 4-7, $5tala beers! So good. Fiafia night is so good, nice introduction to Samoan culture and not to be missed. They serve a buffet that evening for $65tala which has a big selection of food including traditional food, you can even watch them cook the pig earlier in the day. The high chief from the village visits on the night too which is cool. The pool is cleaned regularly and is lovely and refreshing - on exceptionally hot days itâ€™s like a warm bath! Perfect for swimming up to the bar for a beer! The staff are all so lovely, they always say hello and are happy to help, we especially loved sili, I wanted to take him home with us, he was so funny and always had a smile on his face. The resort run tours each day - we didnâ€™t do any but heard from other people that hey were really good. Thereâ€™s free snorkeling equipment, kayaks, paddle boards etc to hire which we took advantage of, thereâ€™s a few sun loungers around the pool, maybe there could be some more? They fill up quite quick. All in all I canâ€™t think of anything bad to say! The only bad thing was I didnâ€™t want to leave! The staff line you up and sing to you on departure, then this big gust of sand went in my eye and made it water ;) then captain sang to us on the way to the airport, ah it was just so awesome! We were on our honeymoon and already planning our next trip for next year with our 2 year old. Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful! Suggestions for visitors: take snacks from nz, tip the staff where you can, they work long hours and I donâ€™t think they have much disposable income left at the end of their pay check. if you hire a car, be prepared to pay for things like entry to beaches and waterfalls etc as this is how the locals make money - when you see how they live you wonâ€™t mind paying although this practice is frowned upon by the elders. Suggestions for owners: maybe a few more sun loungers by the pool and a kids club for toddlers/babies? Honestly struggling to fault anything though we had a perfect time :)
