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.

Overall a really good experience at Samoana Boutique hotel. Travelled with our 2 families, 2 nice large spacious rooms is the plus, everything was pretty clean, and serviced well on arrival. My kids loved the rooms. Staff member was very helpful with our enquiries. Liked the big size of the rooms, and air con. Everything was there that we needed. Check in was easy. Thank you Samoana Boutique hotel and staff for accomodating us.

We booked into samoana after having difficulties in Savaii with the ferry. The owner was absolutely wonderful and helped us to find accommodation when we were all feeling very stressed and unsure when we would be staying and how much it would cost! The owner helped us out tremendously and ensured we were taken care of. The facilities were good and we used the pool each day! Thankyou for our stay!

The rooms are wonderful and very clean, ( the cleaning staff working very hard to accommodate any request) The management also followed through with any issues that arose, ie television not working, very quickly. The only thing that we found unsettling was a notice on the wall of our room listing what was in our room ( ie 2 teatowels) , and their worth,( ie $4. ) If any of these articles were missing from our room, the notice stated that we would be charged the amount listed. Whilst I understand the problems that can arise for hotels, this unfriendly notice meant that instead of relaxing and enjoying our arrival in this very nice hotel, we spent time doing an inventory! And not everything on the list was there, so then that had to be followed through....not a great start. It is easy to have people sign for the beach towels when they arrive but this list was not good.

The staff was so friendly. The two bedroom suite we had was very spacious. It had air conditioning and ceiling fans. The suite included a kitchen and fridge. The bathroom was nice. Cute decor and beautiful paintings on the wall. There was a nice pool that my kids loved. The location was super convenient. There’s a cafe downstairs that had delicious coffee and food. Definitely recommend!

Our family (incl 3 adult kids, partners, and 5 grandchildren) stayed at Samoana 4 Nov to 20 Nov. The owner walked around the facility seemed grumpy most of the time, & not really acknowledging us, 2nd week into our stay, the bed broke, when a suitcase was placed on the bed. I was told that I had to pay $300 tala! This was policy anything broken etc customers were to pay. Was told to move rooms, due to some plumbing issue & we could move back, then see that they had another family move in the next day. Kids were in 3bedroom aprtment, no aircon in the living area just ceiling fans but 1 not working, made the living area still stuffy and hot. My Family paid just over $10k Tala, would have appreciated a more customer-friendly demeanor from management However The receptionist, housekeepers were all very friendly and accommodating. The pool was a godsend for us all during the hot days out and about. The cafe Black Pepper definitely worth trying out, great food & prices.

This hotel has not been in business for very long, but it is extremely well managed by Madeline Arp, wife of James Arp, who is the director of Samoana (Car) Rental. The hotel is across the road from Apia Park, which is basically a giant sports stadium, and a safe and pleasant place to take a walk (with an umbrella to shield you from the sun. We were in room #9, which is probably one of the two coolest in the hotel, facing south and west, with SIX windows and a balcony furnished with a table and armchairs. It was spacious (8m x 5m, of which 3m x 1.5m is a bathroom with a large shower). The only drawback to the room is that it faces the busy main E-W highway, and light sleepers might be bothered by the ceaseless traffic and occasional klaxon. The two large double beds were comfortably firm; there was a king-size sofa bed; a table almost 1m x 1m; and three chairs. There was no wardrobe, but a large double clothing rack with plenty of hangers was sufficient for us. At the N end of the room, there was a kitchenette with a large sink, microwave, mid-size refrigerator & freezer. Cupboards held plates, cutlery, and kitchen utensils. We ate several meals downstairs, at the Black Pepper Restaurant. You can phone for a taxi, or take a bus downtown for just a few talas. It takes about 10 minutes to get there.

My family of 6 spent 5 nights here and loved every bit of it. The rooms were always clean and their service made things a lot easier for us because it was our first time travelling together and booking with any hotel as a family. Beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was great. We will definitely book with them again! From the Meauli family in Room 4 and 5 :)

We stayed at a few different hotels & resorts during our holiday in Samoa, including Taumeasina. Samoana was our favourite local stay, by far! The location is wonderful, and right across the road from Apia Park. We booked the 2bdrm family apartment next door to reception, and wow - the apartment is so clean and spacious. The lady who served us at reception was so accommodating and hospitable, and all staff were super friendly and approachable. Comfortable beds, rooms cleaned daily, massive bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals, on nights we didn’t feel like eating out. The swimming pool is wonderful, my kids loved it and swam every day! We also rented a car through Samoana, and they were awesome! Such a great hotel & car hire team! Samoana Car Hire and Samoana Boutique Hotel will now be our first choice, for all ours future visits to Samoa. My favourite part of our stay, is that my 6yr old wouldn’t stop practicing her reading with a Book of Mormon that she found in one of the bedside drawers. She begged me to ask, if she could keep it, but I told her to put it back and that I’d find her a copy she could have when we returned home to Australia. I thought she would’ve forgotten by now, but she keeps asking for a copy of the Book of Mormon, so now I need to get one for her! Overall, our favourite place to stay in Samoa.

After staying in larger hotels in Samoa, I found this hotel a number of times searching online, I decided to book directly with the property and from the time of booking to check out, I found this hotel to be the best in customer service, clean and comfortable. Minor issues with a faulty light bulb in one of the rooms and bathroom, it was changed quickly, internet isn't great but it's not just here, I found the same at other hotels in the I stayed in and you have to pay for a certain allocation. Confirmation of the booking was swift and very easy. We booked the 2 bedroom apartment, I was pleasantly surprised at the space and comfort of the room. Aircon was a welcome relief on the very humid days. There is no bar facility at the property the cafe on-site only has cafe food, nothing too fancy, the apartment is self contained with everything you need but there are restaurants very close by as well if you want to try like seafood gourmet I would definitely stay here again, the pool and BBQ area are also great to relax in. For the price and quality I would definitely recommend this hotel
