Good value, great service

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Apr 2023
Budget accommodation close to town. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was yummy and plentiful , served in a lush courtyard.
There is a shop next door that is open quite late for basic supplies.
The place needs a bit of maintenance but after 3 years of covid restrictions and little to no income, it’s the case for most places.
Date of stay: April 2023

Reviewed 27 August 2019

Friendly, helpful staff. Some confusion over the airport shuttle and then my bill amount, turned out OA tacks on a 3.7% surcharge fee. Quiet area, good night’s sleep, ceiling fan at high speed kept the mosquitoes away (since no nets), water pressure is low but nice, hot shower.

Room okay, very basic. Needs to be cleaned better, many surfaces covered with dirt and grime. Breakfast just okay, ‘tropical continental’, same breakfast each morning during my 6-night stay, so a bit monotonous. No potable water to drink, not even a ‘welcome’ drink after the long flight to
Samoa and airport shuttle to Olivia’s.

Not much around Olivia’s, a couple small supermarkets and a Western Union currency exchange a few hundred meters distant, you’ll need to walk 15 minutes back into the Central Business District for much else. And be advised EVERYTHING is closed on Sundays here and what used to be beaches nearby are now gone as of 2017, a storm wall and boulders instead.

Mosquitos, fairly clean, not really much of a breakfast, very basic place. But it had working a/c, comfortable beds and hot water which is what we just needed for our quick sleep there. It was the least expensive option at the time for the night in Apia. I’m not sure how easy of a fix it is, but the hot water shower was either cold or super scalding hot and no more than half a second vacillating randomly between the two. It was dangerous to actually shower, especially the children!

Really enjoyed Olivia’s. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with a lovely breakfast. We checked in quite late and they drove us somewhere nearby for food. Great proximity to town, short taxi or 15 minute walk. Also close to The Edge bar if you fancy a drink with the locals!

Lovely hosts and in a great location just a short walk from the city centre. Nice laid back atmosphere about the place and the staff were very helpful. Enjoyed the fresh fruit for breakfast and would definitely stay there again. Thanks.
