As above, nice resort feel, in the middle of town, everything you can expect from a town resort. Friendly staff, nice pool (little on the strong side) nice bar overlooking the pool. Rooms have all the amenities you will need. I would have said 5 stars, but the beer price was a little steep outside happy hour. That's it, very... More

I had a fabulous night at Tanoa last week - I was there for the Art School graduation. The graduation was a great experience in itself, but enhanced by excellent food, and service. Later in the night, a few friends ended up at the bar - which as you would expect in Samoa - is friendly and easy. The bartender... More

This hotel is one of a kind. I've stayed at many hotels during my holiday and must admit the atmosphere and relaxation feel I got from this experience was amazing. Besides some miscommunication between staffs about our rooms/booking, my stay was absolutely beautiful and cannot wait to visit/stay again.

Talofa jfretton We certainly are a great base in Apia for families travelling in Samoa. It seems all the staff made an impression on you but particularly the bar staff. This is also reflected in your bar bill. The boys look forward to welcoming you back. Regards Jason and the Tanoa Tusitala team More
