The hotel was okay , wasn't what we expected , as we were expecting to be 'wow' from the room it's self. Instead it average , the shower needs a huge upgrade , as I'm pretty sure people don't make the old showers any more. Found it to be clean but had bugs -ants on the walls on the bathroom...

I am intrigued by your review. This is the first I have heard of your "food Poisoning" we had over 90 guests in the hotel during your stay all had breakfasts but no one else reported feeling ill. We take food safety very seriously, my Chef trains staff constantly on the importance of food hygiene. Our showers are not Old...

Thank you for your review of our property. We value your feedback and it is passed onto departments. The complementary Fia Fia night was only whilst they undergoing training. Now that they present a great show our normal charge of WST$65 for a buffet and show including fire dancers is back in effect.

I have stayed at the Tanoa on three occasions and every time I visit, it's so great to be back. Staff are friendly, kind and helpful. The service is great and I feel so at home there. I have also organized meetings and workshops there, and they do an excellent job. Highly recommended!!!

We were here briefly on business, and fortunate to get a room on the day. Comfy, clean and spacious room, with everything you need in the heart of Apia. Food was good and the staff were friendly and attentive.

Enjoyed the well manicured grounds and neatly kept rooms. The level of customer service is exceptional, and in particular offered by Darren and Tracey who were extremely helpful and professional. I highly recommend the Tanoa Tusitala. Will stay again anytime.

The Tanoa Tusitala is a good option in Apia. It is centrally located, the rooms are spacious, and things work very well. The hotel has a good restaurante with tasty food, and a small size pool. The staff is friendly. The breakfast options are limited but do the job. Internet, as in other parts of Samoa, is quite expensive. Overall...
