The hotel is in need of some renovation around the pool and dining area and the rooms need proper maintenance work, not just temporary fixes. It is in a peaceful setting, the rooms are good size, the staff are friendly, and the food is good, although breakfast fairly average. If the owners give the place a bit of a facelift then you could say it is a value for money hotel.

Very nice hotel experience. The Orator looks like it was once a 5 star resort but is a bit dated now - the swimming pool tiles have started to come away and it doesn't quite look like the pictures anymore but it's still very nice, probably a 3.5 - 4 star these days. The staff are friendly and helpful, beds super comfortable and it's nice and close to Apia. Great breakfast :) The only real downside is the shower, it was either boiling hot or cold, nothing in between. Not a big deal as a cold shower is quite nice in Samoa, but would've been nice to have a slightly warm one sometimes.

Nice hotel overall, close to town and nearby natural sights. Very peaceful, private and reasonable overall costs. We rate the free breakfast as very good, dinner menu and food was not so good and the pupu was oily and should not be served at all. The whole staff were beyond awesome; friendly, attentive and always welcoming,,,,,bravo to them. Thanks and keep it up Orator owners/management cos we're coming back.

Well Presented, Oasis in the jungle

We were just here for our first night in Samoa and it rained buckets! But kids still swam, pools are great but beware the surface is a bit rough and can graze easily ( knees, chin etc). Beautifully kept surrounds and buildings. Pretty good value if you can get special rates, as rooms nice inside, bathroom very nice showers look cool though didn't use ( walls out of mosaic rocks). Paths and steps can be a bit slippery as on slope, but it was very wet. Restaurant okay, though a bit dark struggled to see menu and food! Breakfast very adequate. All quite grand but just looked a bit empty and sad- probably there on a quiet day.

Nice plants and sicluded area.

Pros: The staff, plant life , pool table and the swimming pool.
Cons: Swimming pool,TV reception and the Wi Fi.
Location: Location well...it's not beside the beach but that's ok close to town with supermarket 3mins down the road is good. No complaints.
Upon arrival we were surprised with a complimentary juice drink waiting for us and a friendly welcome from the staff. We immediately loved the plant life setting that covered the hotel area. Very beautiful. The room was nice and simple with the staff letting us know how to contact reception and the free shuttle rides to Apia. The shower tap could do with a little work where it would be hot then straight away cold with out no warm selection plus the shower drainage needed to drain a little faster. The pool was very nice in colour but my kids would complain about the rough sand surface where it should be smooth all around inside. The kids menu was well priced but not for its quality. Macarroni n cheese, pizza and the gourmet hotdog just looked like a home meal that could be done by school kids. Adults dinner was superb. Loved it. But it would be helpful to have the whole menu available. The eating area had a few annoying cats so that needs a look at. Now the Wi-Fi offer needs a demanding upgrade, something better than just an hour usage payment like Aggie greys $100 for 3 days and the TV reception needs a better look with a kids channel at least. Other than that the staff was very nice and helpful.
