We stayed here checking in on 12th sept. We were supposed to be there 2 weeks but we checked out and moved to another hotel. Their website is completely misleading and I'd love to know who wrote their 63 positive reviews. Let the pictures speak for themselves. Ant and turmite infestation in villa 21 where we stated.

This review will be a bit wordy so please excuse the length.I first got in touch with Charlotte (Orator Hotel General Manager) in November 2015 when we were planning our wedding for September 2016 in Samoa. We then flew over in late January 2016 to meet with wedding vendors and suppliers (cake, photographer, venue, catering etc) and arranged meetings with...

Well presented, clean facilities, with lots of room. This location was very quiet when we first arrived and so we were a bit disappointed a few days in to have to share with a large loud multi family group. This location is popular with locals for visiting family, family reunions, weddings, and business visitors. Great pools. Friendly staff, who did...

My sister and I checked in very late as our flight had been delayed. We were welcomed with friendly staff. Unfortunately when we got to our room though the aircon was not working, and the fridge was just switched on, so there was no access to cold water to drink. The next day my sister spoke to the supervisor about...

“Ask for room 1-3 or 14-16 as these are closest to the reception area if you dont want a long walk.”
