I had heard that Lalomanu Beach was one of the most beautiful in the Pacific and it didn't let me down. Litia Sini undoubtedly has the best views and access to the beach so you can't go past it for that. We had a beachfront...More
Great location - the beach at Lalomanu really is quite lovely. The coral is regenerating after the area was devastated by the Tsunami in 2009 so the snorkelling is not amazing, but it is pretty nice. There are dogs further down the beach in front...More

As a frequent guest, and someone who has been helping the resort rebuild since the Tsunami, I am answering on their behalf. You have compared Samoa to Noosa and to Bali, but I think unfortunately you haven’t taken to time to understand Samoa, their culture, and the unique challenges of the country. It’s a small island, in the middle of the Pacific, with significant challenges as a developing economy. Most products are imported (consider the cost), access is challenging, and power is mostly diesel generation, from Apia. So let’s not pretend for a minute this is a first world “Disney” destination. So to ask why they have a good rating, is asking the wrong question.
Litia Sini is not 5 star, but many travelers have rated their experience highly because they connected with the place or the people. You obviously didn’t, and that’s OK. But I am concerned someone “oversold” Samoa to you, and your expectations clearly weren’t then met. If you feel the website, or marketing material wasn’t representative or accurate, then we need to change that. Because we want to align people’s expectations with the experience. If a travel agent oversold the place, or Samoa, then that would also be great to get feedback on. Travel is a personal and individual thing. Samoa isn’t for everyone, it requires a sense of adventure, and some people simply don’t want that on holiday. That’s understandable.
The onus on the travel marketers, is to ensure expectations are aligned, so that people are matched and aligned to the destination; be that Samoa, Noosa and Bali.
