Very friendly staff, food is plentiful, sitting at the table, community style, so you can meet different people every time you sit down for a meal. There are shared facilities, very clean. We slept in a beach fale and it's great as there is a lot of ventilation and breezy at night. They put great entertaining nights and great cocktails....

Price is cheap but service is excellent. Hotel offers free breakfast and dinner, we all ate full. Water activities are exciting with little cost. Wish hotel can offer free wi-fi in the near future. Recommend to stay in the Oceanview room but not beach front fales.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review of our property. We appreciate your recommendation of the Ocean View. We hope to provide free Wi-Fi in the future. Wi-Fi is very expensive and not reliable at the moment. Our office spent on average 90.00/day by using a modem/dongle.

The following review is based off a 9 day/8 night stay at the beach fales.

This is not an all negative review I want to state that from the beginning. There was one distressing event that tarnished our whole experience but I will separate each element of our visit to Taufua Beach Fales. Some separation also needs to be given to the location (Lalomanu beach) and the Taufua Fales themselves. So many reviews get caught...

Communal breakfast and dinner which was really good and great for mingling with people. Shower/ toilets across the street, huts are basic. Traditional dance and fire show on Wed & Sat....

Now it is important to note that this is a no frills kinda holiday. If you are looking for an off the grid getaway, to relax, catch up on reading your favourite books, meeting new people and try a little of the local style living. This is a gem.

The Fales are great in keeping with Samoan tradition.. The stafff are awesome and friendly , love the eating all at one table for meals, this gives it a more homely laid back feel and gets you talking to other guests. The beach here is the best I have been to its amazing.
