Excellent hospitality stayed there for 5 months while doing electives at TTM. Good value for money. Samoan's very friendly and beautiful beaches to visit. Close to local restaurants and town. Keep up the good work Breana.

Stayed at Tatiana's for 5 weeks during my elective at TTM Hospital, and it was ideal for my use. The motel is packed with other medical students (there were 14 other students when I first arrived) and people come and go all the time. It's perfect for solo travelling, or for making friends to travel around the islands. Breakfast is...

I stayed here for 4 weeks during my medical placement - it's only a 5 minute walk from the hospital and 2 minutes from Lynn's supermarket. The staff and family were extremely helpful and welcoming and had information about the hospital as well. Breakfast included a selection of weetbix, cereal, fresh papaya and pineapple, boiled eggs, bread + jam and...

I spend, 6 days in Tatiana and I cannot believe how poor the owner handle situations. The staffs were great n very helpful, but the way they were treated is not fair. Anyway, the owner needs to put what his preaching online into practice. Even thou my kids enjoy the swimming pool but it was unfortune that the owner's son...

Tatiana Motel - I spent 6 weeks there as a medical student doing my elective at the local hospital. Whilst I was there, I boarded at Tatiana Motel for the duration of 6 weeks.

I spent 4 weeks of my medical elective staying in tatiana's motel last year and I honestly could not rate it high enough. Right from the moment we were picked up from the airport (complimentary! ) until the moment we left we were made to feel completely at home. I stayed in a two bed room which was clean and...

I spent 4 weeks in Samoa on my elective in July 2015 and had the pleasure of staying at Tatiana Motel for that time. This is the perfect place to stay if you're coming to Samoa for your elective.

I had a wonderful time on elective here, it was only 10 minute walk for the hospital, a 5 minute taxi ride to town and a major place for medical students to stay. At one point during my stay the motel was full of around 30 medics. It was an extremely fun elective. Rooms were basic but very large and...

Stayed at Tatiana for 4 weeks - would recommend it to anyone looking for good-value accommodation in a great location in Apia. Comfortable, clean rooms with air conditioning, fridges and bathrooms/showers. Breakfast is provided everyday, with lovely fresh fruit and if the family are having a special breakfast they will usually give you some too (banana fritters!!) What really sets...

“Ask for the rooms away from the road- they have better air con and the water is warm. Be wary though these rooms are always in demand so you may have to start out front and work your way in.”
