My husband and I returned to Sinalei in April 2012 for our honeymoon for 10 days. We had stayed at Sinalei in Sept 2011 and were so amazed with the resort that we planned our honeymoon. We were booked in a Garden Fale but received a massive upgrade to the Presidential Suite and we were impressed. Not just with the...

We stayed at Sinalie in mid may 2012 for 7 nights, in a beach side fale. The fale was very nice, and right on the waters edge. I agree with an earlier reviewer that the bathroom arrangement does pose some privacy issues, but t he room, outdoor area and bathroom were in good condition , nice decor, good toiletries, towels,...

Absolutely amazing island and resort. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Ocean view fale was fantastic. We stayed here in September 2011 on our "baby moon". It was a great resort and had all that we were looking for - relaxation, surfing, great food and activities. It is quite a relaxed hotel and perfect for a couple wanting to take...

Our garden fale was very comfortable after having stayed in more rustic accommodation over our two weeks, we loved the open bathroom & having a fridge. The food was fantastic, very tasty and well...

Talofa lava Beautiful, Thanks again for your review. On behalf of all of us at the Resort, we apologise again for your unfortunate experience at the old Hideaway beach (past Coconuts Beach Club). There have been no reported incidences of this nature that we have been made aware of earlier hence there being no notices to this effect. As a...

What a beautiful relaxing resort. I have just spent 7 days at the Sinalei and have enjoyed the warm welcoming staff so much that I am looking at booking again next year. All the food ( which is sourced locally ) was fantastic and was well prepared and presented, the accommodation ( garden fale ) was nicely laid out and...

What a beautiful resort! We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by spending a week at Sinalei and loved every moment. The location is spectacular, the gardens are lush and beautiful with paths and boardwalks to get around, the room very comfortable, the food is excellent and the staff very friendly. We loved the use of local ingredients, and the Samoan...

My husband and I recently spent a lovely 5 nights at Sinalei. Our holiday didn't start well as when we arrived at 1am we were put into a Garden fale when we expected to be in a Beachside fale. We were told that there was no-one who could change anything until after 9am. The room was quite comfortable but just...

My wife and I have just spent a week at Sinalei, for the first time since the tsunami - we had previous stays in 2006 and 2007. It has been beautifully and courageously re-built and is now better than ever. The GM, Sose Annandale, is still there of course, as are several staff whom we remembered well from last time....

We have recently returned from a wonderful 5 nights at the Sinalei resort. It was our first visit to Samoa and we were very impressed. The Sinalei is a quiet, relaxed resort and was just what I was hoping for. We loved the peacefulness and the friendly staff. The food at the restaurant was so much better than I was...

Talofa Simply Sublime, Great feedback. We note your comments re the Tapas. Hope we can improve on this before your next visit. Good to hear you enjoyed the Tuna Burger which is a goody but oldie for us since it was taken off our menu (temporarily) recently when the Cook was trying out new dishes. As always it is with...
