Wonderful staff,beautiful location. Loved being able to experience the local culture. Great breakfasts.Didn't enjoy set menu so much- need some choices. Very relaxing. Our bathroom not very clean. Entrance to hotel very rough- needs some attention. First impressions very important. Overall, a great experience, though.

Highly recommend this place!

Location is amazing, beautiful beach, can kayak to other island, large area for kids to play. Also close to surrounding tourist sites like canopy walk and falealupo beach. Our family air conditioned room spacious with comfy beds. Clean bathrooms. Food (breakfast and dinner) included in cost was delicious! Staff very welcoming and helpful. Our aircon/fridge had issues which were eventually fixed later. Highly recommend this place!!

Beautiful people and beautiful location

Pros: The staff, the view, the facilities - everything really.
Cons: Perhaps the only thing would be if the activities and demonstrations could be signposted the day before.
Location: It's quite far from the ferry terminal so I would recommend hiring a car. You can do a day trip to see the turtles and lava fields, or the blowholes
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. Our fale overlooked the water, as most of them do, and the view was breathtaking. We made use of the free kayaks and went over to the nearby island which was totally worth the effort - we snorkelled for hours and saw amazing fish, starfish, sea cucumbers and coral. We also loved the coconuts demonstration (husking, shredding, making cream). The staff were truly lovely as well - friendly and helpful and generous with their time and energy. We made an error when booking our stay and we needed another night; they accommodated us with no problems at all. The fiafia night was heaps of fun, it was great to watch the staff dancing and singing. I can't really speak highly enough of Va-i-Moana. We even got a hug when we checked out... as my husband said, can't remember the last time I got a hug on leaving a hotel. Would definitely return, and I hope we do. Soon.

Away From It All

This place is perfect for getting completely away from the world. There is little to do here but swim, eat and read. The staff are wonderful and the food good. I came away feeling completely re-charged. The rooms are very basic. If you are after luxury this is not the place for you!
