Stevensons at Manse was an awesome holiday with our children 16, 15 and 12. We went for a beach sunset wedding and the service was out of this world. So SAD to have to come home. Stayed in a beach falae 5 metres from the water. Of course no airconditioning but coped without problem even though from Southland and snowed 2 days before trip. Beds were comfortable, mosquito nets adequate (take good repellent) meals were mouthwatering, especially the Oka. Two restaurants to choose from. Watch the crabs scurry about as you eat or eat under fans in the main restaurant. Brilliant snorkleing at the doorstep which we all did 2/3 times each day. Better than the snorkelling trip we paid for in fact. Showers quaint but excellent, did not need hot water. Rooms serviced each day if wanted. Amazing place and putting in a pool soon as well. Not sure why. Megan the hotel Manager couldn't have been more friendlier or helpful as were all the staff. Can't wait to go back.
We have spent 4 nights at Bayview Resort. Staff was very friendly, they helped us with everything. The problem was that it was just us there and maybe 2 other units were occupied. It was mid August. The atmosphere was not there for this reason. The bay is ok, nice swimming, very easy to see turtles. Not that good for small kids as there is basically no beach, you go directly to the water. For this reason we were going to Manase beach, 5 mins drive by car, taxi will cost you 10 Tala one way - no problem at all.
We fell in love with this place. Staff very gracious and accommodating. We were made to feel like friends from the moment we arrived. Fantastic value for money. Don,t think the web photos do it justice. We hated leaving. Great weather. Absolutely recommend Vai Moana for a truly relaxing, memorable holiday.
Pool and view from the ocean view rooms was great.
However, The rooms were pretty dated and tired - the stucco ceiling in our room had a huge patch missing from what i can only assume was a rough repair job.
The bathroom was dark and dingy with no windows.
The food in the restaurant was basic
The staff were mostly helpful and the onsite car rental was good - this is not the place to just hang out at hotel - definitely just a base to explore Savaii from and to cool off in the pool at the end of the day.
We stayed at 4 places on Savaii and this was one of our favourite. The room above the water was stunning. We could hear the water lapping all night and in the morning could see fish swimming in the lagoon below. The staff are super friendly and considerate. They were thoughtful, helpful and attentive too. And then there was good food to top it off! we didn't expect that ! Breakfast was beautiful and the evening menu had quite a variety, the Oka was the best we tasted in Samoa. Will definitely stay there again.
Our Family loved the place, the resort, the staff, the pool, the beach, and the weather were all just simply wonderfull. 50% of the rooms were closed for renovation which was great as the was more pool and beach space for us and there was absolutely no impact of the renovation on our stay - not even a bit of noise. The staff were extremly friendly and did not fail on any request.
if I had to nit pick and find fault our air con did not work the best but then we choose to go to a hot country. So why complain about a few minor details when there was so much great about the area.
We will certianly return.

We arrived at Apia airport to be greeted by Fatu, who drove us to Return to Pardise, when we arrived even though it was late they kept the bar open for us and Iosa made us a special cocktail. At the resort the staff made us feel so welcome and were very accommodating. We absolutely loved the Fia'fia night and it was a great chance to see some of the Samoan culture and taste the incredible food from the Return to Paradise. What sets Return to Paradise apart from the rest are the beautiful people working there and the incredible beach, which you can laze around on or even go in for a swim. It is the perfect place to switch off and forget about reality! We highly recommend this resort and we'll definitely try to get back to visit again. Please don't be put off by some of the earlier reviews, the resort was basically completely finished with only minor works still occurring, that you wouldn't even notice unless you went looking for them.
most excellent stay at Orator - staff extra friendly and helpful, facilities amazing but especially the pools and beautiful gardens, rooms very clean and tidy, good 'out of the way' location and serenity, food very good.
planning to go back there soon with my family so they can experience it too.
