Sadie's by The Sea

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for a couple of nights to take a look around the island. It's in a good position by the sea, nice little pool and a few sun loungers with tables, chairs and umbrellas. It gets pretty hot here too .... The room itself was ok, pretty tired and in need of a refurb. However the rooms are big enough for two people, the beds are comfy enough. The bathroom again is tired but big enough. The shower didn't stay hot for long so if you wanted a long shower it'll be cold.. The wifi was hit and miss, it seemed to drop in and out which can be quite frustrating. The TV didn't work the whole time we were there, which was very annoying as that was one of the reasons we choose here.. We got picked up from the airport which was great and our driver was very helpful and knowledgeable about the island. They also took us back to the airport, another plus.. We'd recommend this place.

The hotel appears to have never been renovated since it originally opened. The carpets, furniture and bathrooms need updating. The beds still have nasty bedspreads. But the room is clean, has a/c and is located on the sea. Considering the lack of accommodations on the island, Sadies is a good choice. Do not eat at their restaurant unless it is your only choice.

Only 5 minutes flat walk from the ship dock and it has everything the family needs for only $5 per person. This was really great for our family as we were told there were no beaches and limited activity in the town. So wrong. For your $5 you get access to the pool, white sand beach, clean toilets/change room, a great coral garden for snorkeling (big blue starfish and trumpet fish a highlight) and you can rent their kayaks and wifi. Did I mention $1.75 beers? We spent the whole afternoon there at Sadies - it was great!

American Samoa is somewhat hard to get to, but staying at Sadie's made it all worthwhile. On the beach, it also has a pool, restaurant and bar; the accommodations are as close as you will get to "luxury" in Pago Pago. Rooms are well-equipped, with fridge, coffee maker, WiFi, cable TV, and an extremely comfortable bed. Staff is as friendly as can be (as is everyone in Samoa), and I can't think of anything that was lacking. I was extremely happy to stay at Sadie's.

Nice place on the water. Close to harbor shops and centrally located. The staff was great. We thought we had a home to stay in, but in the closing days to leave plans fell through. Now winging it the staff helped us with a lot of things to do and places to see, so friendly. Thanks to all.

Better than Tradewinds - but still over priced but the lack of competition means they charge what they like. Bar is nicer than down town and food better but more costly. if you have a car then choose this over Tradewinds but don't expect alot for $150 in a 3rd world country. For HOLIDAY choose Samoa instead as real 5star Sheraton is same price as this place. Rooms OK, but touch dated. Pleanty TV channels that work, wifi painfully slow.

I like visiting with people at the restaurant that is covered but outdoors. Heavy rain is soothing as I eat dinner in a very nice, fun setting at the on-premises Goat Island Cafe. This visit was a pleasant time due to many reasons. The in-room, reasonably priced laundry service is perfect for my style of traveling light. And, the room cleaning people are really friendly. The place makes you feel like a guest, not a reservation number. I like the location. I've stayed at both Sadie's properties and I like both. I think By The Sea is a bit better for me because it is closer, walking distance, to where I need to be each day. The never ending supply of aiga buses for a buck are my main mode of travel. I do not need a car here as the bus and friends can get you where you need to be and there are enough cabs in the area because this is somewhat one of the centers of the island. I noticed little improvements at the hotel. The pool and beach seemed upgraded in terms of patio furniture and amenities. And, my room was very clean each day. I was there for 21 days. I recommend this property.

My wife and I stayed at Sadie’s by the Sea for 12 days in early October. We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and highly recommend it. The room was clean with a beautiful view of Pago Pago harbor. The private beach outside our door was wonderful. A free continental breakfast is provided, as well as free Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi was hit or miss at times, but that is true for all of American Samoa. The downtown area is a short walk away. If one wants to experience a true Polynesian atmosphere, this is definitely the hotel to stay at. We cannot wait to return.

In Pago Pago there are limited rooming options. Sadie's could be one of the best, but the current owner has let the property get a bit run down. On the otehr hand, we were with a large group and the servers and the food were quite good.

"American Samoan Paradise" Sadie's by the sea is a wonderful and relaxing place to stay. Very clean rooms, with a mini frig, safe and coffee maker. All rooms have a view of the bay. The hotel also has a beautiful pool and small sandy beach. The staff was great and always very helpful. Exceptional hotel restaurant, the “Goat Island Cafe”, with the best food on the island. Ask for Ruta...she was wonderful, always had our special table ready and gave us great information regarding local customs and places to see around her beautiful island. Overall, Sadie’s by the Sea was 5 stars!
