I had a lovely stay here at the Outrigger Hotel and am sad to say my goodbyes! Every year a group of nursing students from my University in Canada comes to beautiful Samoa from the end of April to the beginning of June for a practicum experience. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to come this year and practice...

Great hotel, basic but clean amenities. Nice breakfast by the pool. Very accommodating staff that went out of their way to help us when our bags from the airline went missing. Can hire cars direct from reception and it's not too far from town. Highly recommend!

We stopped here for one night after a late arrival and were pleasantly surprised. Very clean, with helpful staff. Beautiful pool and quiet fales in the gardens. Staff arranged a taxi for us...be advised, a taxi to the south cost should only cost you WST$80...not the WST$120 we were charged!

I stayed here with 5 friends earlier in the year. It was a brilliant choice. For any medical student doing an elective I would highly recommend Outrigger. It was fantastic value, especially considering a great breakfast is included everyday. We stayed for three weeks and were treated to day-trips from the owner, Claus, which were brilliant. We were made to...

We stayed at this place for four weeks and had a great time. Rooms are large and very clean, tropical breakfast is great and all the staff are just lovely - it felt like they really cared, and they were very helpful whenever we had any questions. The garden is great (try the hammock!) And the pool is large and...

Clean, tasteful and ideal value for money hotel. Very friendly staff. Very interesting colonial architecture which gives an early 19th century feeling. Run by a danish which has settled on the island so you can expect scandinavian organisation. Definitely recommended for those who plan for a quick stay in the bustling city of Apia. There are some better hotels out...

This is a great hotel, particularly if you have a car, as it is a bit of a walk down the hill to the centre of Apia. (They hire cars out here as well). The pool is large, deep, cool and clean with lovely chairs and lounges. The gardens are well maintained. I stayed in 3 different rooms during my...
