The most friendly staff! It’s a humble accommodation but a fun and authentic island experience. I only stayed for a few hours to catch some sleep and shower during my layover but it was worth the experience. Also super conveniently located from the city center!

Staff was great and very helpful. Loved my Garden Fale! Highly recommended and would definitely stay there again.

Four day stay. A bit too far from town to walk in the heat, but taxis are inexpensive and readily available.The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

the rooms are really nice colored in blue. but we could not sleep because of the noise from the traffic (busy street!) and the barking dogs. i liked the breakfast...different kind of fruits and toasts. the price of the internet access key was not always the same...it depended who was on the reception.

Great central location. It has a hostel flavor to it. I met people from all over the world. Stayed in the fales. It is not a luxury place but quaint and for a good price. The pool was nice to have after a hot day of exploring or going to the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I was very pleased with the good service that I received from [...]at the Samoan Outrigger. I have been to Samoa a few times as my husband is Samoan and he is working on a house on the family property. The house was not ready for me to stay there so I booked a room at the Samoan Outrigger. When I arrived in Samoa I found that I would be able to stay at the house and I asked [...] to give me a refund even though he was under no obligation to do so according to the written policy. He was kind enough to do so. In a city where service is almost non existant this was a very pleasant surprise. His hotel is clean and quaint, painted a very pretty blue and white. The furniture is lovely and the front staff are very nice and professional. [...] was professional and accomodating and I will not hesitate to stay there anytime I am unable to stay in the house in the future. I was very happy with the cleanliness, the staff, the service, the location and definately the price of this hotel.

I stayed at the Outrigger Hotel for 1 week, in a fale. The staff was friendly, good breakfast included in the price and it was very clean. It was an interesting experience to sleep in a fale.. and I am glad I did it. Just remember to bring bug spray. The location is good. Very close to downtown Apia, only 10min to walk. It is, however, a bit far away from the beaches, but the pool at the hotel was great. It gets very hot in the middle of the day, so good to have a way to cool down.
