Loved the location, very friendly staff and delicious food. The Resort is family owned and operated with the grave of Roberta Haynes on site. There is a small museum with memories of the movie Return to Paradise.

Thank you for your review - it was great having you stay with us again and happy that you were able to recharge. We find many of our guests dont realise how much they needed a good break until they are here... Relax and unwind...
We look forward to seeing you again soon for another well earned rest!

Thank you

Totally AMAZING place. Bought this trip through Teen Challenge Benefit. Was not on our bucket list, but I suggest you put it on yours! Most beautiful ocean I’ve ever seen! Staff and inlanders were so accommodating, friendly, lots of tours!

Room tip: I can’t think of a thing. They have bus service to every where. If your going to the local markets have Samosa cash!

Thank you firstly for you review, but also for supporting the Teen Challenge Benefit!
We are beyond proud that you think our ocean is the most beautiful that you've ever seen - and that our staff and our local people are so accommodating - including the wonderful Aunty Martha who are blessed to have with us too.
To be recommended as a bucket list destination is so amazing - thank you so much Sandy!

Very disappointing. If you’re not staying at the resort you can still go in for the day but it will cost you $30 tala pp which you can use on beverages or food. We had lunch which of course everything was over $30 tala and that’s ok if what you order is yummy, I ordered beer battered fish which should be called batter with a hint of fish. We also ordered a jug of Sangria which was orange juice and another $30 tala. Beautiful location but we won’t be coming back to the resort.

Talofa Allison and thank you for your feedback,
Yes it is $30 tala per adult to visit as a day guest - which you can redeem at our oulets including the Rock Pool Bar, Spa, or the Gift shop.
Many of our lunch menu items are above $30 tala but definitely not all of them. Drinks also start from $5 tala each, and beers from $10 tala. We welcome our guests to request menus in advance to gauge how much you'd be spending and if the menu items were suitable prior to your arrival.
I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your fish and chips, or your sangria. A jug of sangria is one of our bar specials - $30 tala - this is normally a guest favourite and definitely should not be just orange juice and we've definitely missed the mark with your one! The feedback has gone straight to our Food & Beverage team. We are very sorry we didnt get to rectify this while you were onsite with us,
We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels in Samoa,
Kind regards

My new home away from home. The welcome at the airport and on arrival a welcome drink and then I was shown to my upstairs ocean view room - what a view. The room was so lovely and cool with air conditioning, and it wasnt long before I walked out to the clear blue crystal water, which is the warmest of all the Pacific Islands I have visited. The beach is beautiful and kept very clean, with plenty of comfy loungers and then just relaxing, chilling out with a good good, a snorkel, a drink - repeat! The staff are amazing and so friendly and do their utmost to ensure your staff is a true Samoan holiday. I went on 3 tours and the tour guide and driver make your trips away so memorable with all the wonderful places to visit. Make sure you bring a hat and reef shoes, as you can snorkel right out the front of the resort. Will I be back - definitely will be back to this true gem of the Pacific. You are all very special and should be very proud of what you do. Kindest regards

Thankyou for your review - we really appreciate it.
As you know, we are mostly proud of our staff - the tour guide Tupu, and driver Tasi are 2 of our staff that help to make memorable experiences.
We are blessed to be caretakers of a the beautiful beach - and we love that we can share it with you, for your home away from home experience! Our beach is kept clean by many of our team and our grounds team help us with this. and thank you for mentioning reef shoes - as we have rock and coral in the beach - most guests find that having these is helpful!
We look forward to welcoming you back to our gem, Return to Paradise.
Thank you again for choosin to stay with your extended RTPR family!
