We stayed a week at Dave Parker Eco Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Hiring a car is a must to take advantage of the location and explore all that Samoa has to offer. The pool was great after a long day out, we brought lobster at the Apia fish market and used the lodge bbq to cook a fabulous dinner...
