Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We recently stayed at Riverside Samoa and there was 7 of us in total. We all had seperate rooms except for the two couples. Made to feel very welcome by Elena Silvia and Patsy and all the girls. Breakfast daily was fantastic too.

My family and I stayed at the Riverside House in Samoa and we absolutely loved it. The house was very warm and welcoming and the people were so very friendly. The accommodations are very well kept. The house was nice and clean when we arrived, and cleaned throughout our stay. It was nice to have enough rooms for a group of 15 travelers, and it was large enough that we were not cramped and stepping on each others toes. The house is located far enough away from the town that it is peaceful and quiet. I really enjoyed my stay at the Riverside House in Samoa. I am looking forward to going back.

Best kept secret in Samoa. This impeccably clean, fragrant, gated vacation rental can house up to 24 guests in 7 bedrooms (furnished w/ceiling fans and A/C), has a common room, large kitchen area w/oven/stove/microwave/fridge/freezer, 3 toilets, 2 showers, washer and dryer, front lanai w/pool table, covered deck in the back near an above ground magnesium salt water pool, and onsite security at night. The yard is spacious with plenty of room for the kids to play and the pool will keep you cool during the hot Samoa days. Superb location, very quiet yet just minutes from downtown Apia. Supermarkets 1-2 minutes down the road, and the Tuanaimato sports complex less than a minute away by car. Extremely friendly and professional staff (Sylvia, Logo, Toli). Cannot say enough about this place, will be back for years to come.

Riversidea Samoa is your home away from home! Our combined family of 16 stayed from 24 December until 5 January 2016 and we thoroughly enjoyed the comforts & great hospitality offered by Riverside. Owner-host Sylvia and the beautiful housekeeping staff of Litara, Logo, Rosa & Aoléle all kept us happy during our stay. The house & villa kept us cool with great AC in the rooms & ceiling fans throughout. We adults loved chilling & eating together outside til all hours of the night. Our kids kept themselves entertained with the pool table, PS/tv & of course the swimming pool which they loved having free reign over during our entire stay:) None of them wanted to leave when it was time to go hahaha... This was our 2nd time staying at Riverside & I'm sure it won't be our last. Thank you again Sylvia & your awesome team of ladies for letting us enjoy your house... thankful that the tv was still intact ;) We wish you well with the upcoming holiday home plans and look forward to next time!

I cant' speak highly enough about this place. I stayed here twice this time before and after Savai'i trip. The staff and Sylvia are just so friendly and nothing is too much bother at all. The breakfast is good. The other guests who also seem to choose this place are great too. The bedrooms have both a fan and air con. The shared ablutions area is always very clean. The fresh flowers everywhere are a lovely touch. They should be charging way more to stay here! Can't recommend enough!

We stayed after I had just finished a mission trip, we had the pleasure of staying at riverside. The staff managed to make us all feel at home & the relationship was anything but bussinesslike in the sense that it wasn't stiff, the love & affection flowed naturally from these girls. Rosa, Aulele, Nitara, Logo & Denise. They are some of the sweetest girls & beswt hospitality assistants I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The rooms are always kept immaculate, the lavatory is beautiful, the pool & foyer feel very comfy & the entire bed & breakfast make for a stay unlike any other.

For big families who are looking for a place to stay together, Riverside is the place to book. Because we had a big group they had arranged free transport from the airport when we arrived and the day we left. The staff, you couldn't fault them. The ladies took care of us with a beautiful breakfast every morning in an outdoor veranda setting looking out to the pool and nature. They were always friendly and helpful and took care of your every need. The place was always clean, spacious rooms with air con and ceiling fans. The bathroom was huge for us all with beautiful showers and hot water. The kids loved the pool, the yard, basketball court etc. Riverside made our experience in Samoa a memorable one for my sister's birthday, for my parents and for the rest of my family who were there.

Wow!! totally loved everything about this place. the facility, rooms, amentities, breakfast - cant praise it enough. I have stayed at 5* joints in Apia before and the hospitaility and "clean" facilities was nothing like Riverside B&B. this place is top of my list next time i visit Samoa. a taxi to town was $12 tala which was a bonus. Thanks so much to you all for such an enjoyable stay.
