This is a small quiet intimate resort especially suited to couples. If you are wanting a large resort with crowds and a wide range of activities then you may as well look to Fiji. It has a good restaurant; the menu has a good range of local and international dishes, but typical of Samoa, prices are relatively expensive. As well as the pool there are some activities such as kayaks and fishing trips, but don't expect the paragliding and banana boats.
We stayed in the Garden Room and thought that this was excellent value for money and to the same standard and with all facilities as the fales; the room opens out onto lush tropical garden and it is relatively close to the pool and restaurnat without these creating a disturbance (remeber it is a quiet resort). By all means, take a fale if you think beachfront is worth $100 a night but why not put that towards dinners! Be aware that there are two Garden Rooms, the one advertised online and the other (which does over look a parking area) which is let out at short notice when other alternatives are not available.
