The Samoan Outrigger Hotel Reviews

Had a few problems

We arrived at the hotel at 2 am to be told there was no booking. I was charged $30 to use their internet to confirm there was a booking. It transpired that the booking agent had confirmed the booking despite being told the hotel was full. However we were not allowed to stay at the Outrigger and spent the remainder of the night on the porch of a very kind taxi driver. We were refunded the booking fee and the $30 but for such an hospitable country this was a disappointing introduction.

The Samoan Outrigger Hotel Reviews from the Web

Liked: very friendly staff, nice place and good clean facilities . Didn't like: maybe it would be good to a bar, or a little more activities for young people.


Liked: I stayed here for 13 nights and wish I could of stayed for 13 more, the staff are amazing, friendly and helpful, location perfect, and rooms comfortable (I stayed in 3 different rooms which were great)If your staying in Apia this hotel is a must Didn't like: Not really a dislike but I found the wifi a bit expensive, so probably best to buy a blue zone wifi card from town


Liked: Friendly staff, very clean, good breakfast included, comfortable and safe. Didn't like: The non-airconditioned rooms were very hot at night.


I stayed in one of the garden fales and I wasn't sure what to expect but I loved it! They have a secure lockbox for your valuables and sleeping almost out of doors (albeit with the protection of a mosquito net) and waking up in the beautiful gardens of the hotel was a delight. The place was always kept spotlessly clean and the staff friendly and helpful.


Very clean and a very welcoming atmosphere


Liked: My fiancee and I got engaged in Samoa just before our stay at the Outrigger and the owner upgraded our room and gave us a bottle of champagne! The staff were friendly, helpful and the breakfast was great too. Didn't like: Wouldn't recommend this place for a long term stay in Samoa, only because Apia doesn't offer much of a cultural experience.
