We arrived hot and thirsty having flown in from NZ. We settled immediately with a cold drinking coconut and all was well, if not better! Lovely little intimate hideaway, cool and shady dining area, loungers around a pool, very warm and friendly staff. The rooms are great - spacious and clean and cool with a gorgeous outdoor shower. We didnt eat in the restaurant, but breakfast was great and included. Luna was warm, friendly, couldn;t do more to help. I couldn't find my passport the day I left and Luna MADE me empty out my suitcase to look even though I knew for SURE it wasn;t in there, and of course it was...... We really enjoyed staying here for the two days we were attending to business in town, Taxi fare was about 7 tala to town, and I walked up the road to the Robert louis Stevenson Museum ( it was great, and worth waiting for the guided tour), then hiked up the hill behind the museum in the hot sun, nearly killing myself with heat exhaustion (slight exaggeration) but a neat view and a chance feel a bit smug as I descended to people who looked impressed! Spoiled a bit by the taxi driver later that day who told me he used to walk up there five times a week with his wife!!!!!
Anyway, you will find a warm welcome at Le Manumea - price is very reasonable and we would go back there without hesitation, in fact we are already planning our next Samoa trip.
