What exactly is a resort ?

Review of Aga Reef Resort
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 weeks ago
The definition is “a place that is frequented for holidays or recreation”. Ok then. Some resorts are basic, some luxurious and alas, too many claim to be what they are not. Having spent 7 nights at Agareef (3 in a ocean breeze room and 4 in the VIP villa), and having dinner every night at the resort I can say that the restaurant staff is very friendly, though not always very competent; that the food is mostly good, some very good; but the menu has such a limited choice, that we ended up eating the same 2 items during our whole stay. I asked for some variation (same pasta, but with a oil and garlic sauce, not the carbonara on the menu, but no luck).
Claimed tour desk ? Unexistent. Suggestions for tours/visits ? None. The room and villa ? The room lived up to it’s description. As far as the villa is concerned, we could see that professional marketeers had been at work…“If you like to combine luxury and beauty with the best ocean view then you just found the right solution. We have also added sun-beds on the large deck…” Yes, the “villa” is nice and spacious, but the “sunbeds” are old wooden lounge chairs without matrasses, so very hard to sit on. Yes, this is
Samoa and not the Maldives. But then resorts like this one should charge accordingly or offer the facilities one would expect when paying a top price. Early risers like me (usually 5 am) will find everything locked till 7 am and no place to sit or have a coffee if spouse/partner tend to sleep a bit later, and don’t expect the beaches, nor the mini-pool, to be like in the pictures. So… not a bad experience for Samoa, but do pray for nice weather because on rainy days, the sea gets rough and as the resort if 90 minutes drive from Apia, there is really nothing to do but read. Not a bad pastime anyhow...

I have read some of the other reviews, and I can't agree more. Friendly staff, so accommodating. Beautiful location, well kept grounds and amenities. We stayed in the VIP suite, it was amazing. By far the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever had!
Thank you to Rick for the fishing, that was once in a lifetime!
We did not realize how far the resort is from Apia, so we ended up spending all of our time close by and at the resort... which was not a bad thing!
Absolutely recommend staying at the Aga Reef Resort.

Me and my wife came here for a few days in March and we absolutely loved every minute we were there. We stayed in Waterfront bungalow it was amazing looking out at the reef every single morning when we opened the curtains. The bed was so comfortable and the Air conditioning was top notch too. The food was good and the cocktails were pretty good also. When we come back to the Samoa we will definitely be staying in Aga reef

So happy to have stayed here and experienced such a relaxing place! Loved it all! The water edge bungalows are spacious and luxurious. To step out on your own deck and see the fish in the clear water below, along with the views had me wondering why I’d even leave the room 😂. Snorkelling and kayaking were amazing. The food was delicious and so tasty! All this (and more), along with the hospitality of the owners and staff at Aga Reef Resort puts it on the list of places to come back to, and stay longer.
It is a decent drive from the airport. I used the resort’s shuttle (paid service) but so worth it.
There are places of interest to see not too far away. In my short visit I chose to get the resorts shuttle (free) to the nearby beach and hired a Fale for the day.
If you’re looking for a lively holiday and lots going on around you then a larger resort would better but if you value great service & food, peace, and beautiful scenery then this is a place not to miss!

This venue is amazing. We had a Waterfront Suite. The room was beautiful and very spacious. Everything was always neat and tidy. The grounds are emaculate. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. They were always willing to help and answer any questions we had.
The views are next level beautiful. Just a beautiful and serene place. Absolutely stunning. We fell in love with Aga Reef straight away.
We loved the food as well. We tried different dishes and it was great! We wish we stayed longer! We spent 3 nights in total. Definitely will come back. It's worth the drive out from the airport.

My sister and I were staying at a Fale down the road and decided to come here as a treat for the day. We each had a massage, stayed for lunch and cocktails and had use of the infinity pool.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The 60 min relaxation massage with Laga was fantastic, she is an amazing massage therapist!
Beef burgers and cocktails for lunch were delicious and very reasonably priced.
We had the infinity pool to ourself for most of the afternoon, the view from the pool is stunning. We even had complimentary use of the showers after swimming.
Looks like a great place for snorkelling too, saw a lot of fish from the boardwalk.
If you are not staying here I highly recommend still coming for a day trip!
