I stayed with Tatiana's for one month whilst completing my medical elective in Samoa. I found the rooms to be comfortable and clean, and the location could not be better for exploring all the treasures that the island had to offer. By far my favourite element of Tatiana's was the family and the staff who worked there- they could not...

We stayed at tatianas for one month for our medical elective in Samoa and we're pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortably air conditioned our room was considering the price! Tatianas is cheaper than other motels of the same standard and has such a lovely family vibe to it. We were completely taken in by the family who live there,...

Breakfast is decent. Only real complaint is that when I booked it said free internet but later on you find out there...

I was visiting Samoa as a medical student and had a wonderful time. I along with three friends stayed at Tatiana's for a month, and were made to feel very welcome.

I stayed at 'Tats' as it's affectionately known for 1 month in January. I was recommended to stay at Tats by several former medical students and they didn't lie- it definitely lived up to it's good reputation. The rooms are clean and fairly well sized with a toilet, shower & bar fridge. And importantly- they have airconditioning & ceiling fans...

“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.”
