where to stay with teenager son

We are planning a first time trip to Samoa in September and would like to know where to stay. We like snorkelling, and relaxing, bit of night life. Don't need 5 star, we used to like Planatation Island in Fiji until they over developed it so looking for alternative. thanks

Hi Jo

It really depends on what level of accommodation you are looking for, and how long you are staying.

There are mid level resorts that are quite nice (google Seabreeze, Samoa) and there are also beach fales on gorgeous beaches, but facilities are a bit more basic.

If you search 'beach fales' in this forum (see the search box above) you'll find some good info. Let us know how you get on, and get back with any questions!

hi we have taken our teenage boys 3 times to samoa and are going back this sept/oct. honestly most places are fine for teenagers. we normaly stay in s few places on our trips. just make sure the kids have their snorkle gear, our boys even tried diving last time which was quite reasonable we paid $300 tala so less then $150 aussie. we have also gone out on fishing charters with them, a great charter is greg at troppo fishing.

some of the places we have stayed and the boys loved are litia's at lalamoano beach. our boys stay in a fale next to us, there is a pool and pingpong table, fantastic snorkeling. great beach. also 15-20 drive along the coast you can find sua trench, which is like a crater/cave type place to go down this steep ladder and swim.

another great place for teenagers is sa'moana (which is a surf camp) but don't let this but you off check out the web site its' great here, fantastic pool, kayaking, pool and pingpong tables.

at savaii, we have stayed at le lagoto which is a nice treat and this is where we went diving, and the beach/waterhole here is the best swimming, lots of families , so the kids will always meet other kids to paly with . also seabreeze is great, our kids rate the snorkeling here the best. oh how could i forget.. my favourite virgin cove, this place is amazing, soft sand, we just love it.

hope this is helpful

cheers sue
