Booking Accommodation Advice


Me again, we are heading do Samoa in December and am wondering what the best way to book accommodation is. Does anyone have any feedback on http://www.samoa-hotels.ws/? They seem to have rates a bit cheaper than some of the prices I've had direct from the places but just want to ensure that they are accurate?

Also, does anyone know if there are many accommodation specials around this time, we are travelleing Dec 2nd-13th 2010

There have been occasions when people have booked with samoa_hotels, had their bookings confirmed only to arrive at their destination to find there is no record of the booking. It doesn't happen all the time but it has happened. Their prices are lower because they charge the accommodations a fee to process the bookings. The site itself though has a good range of accommodations. I prefer to book direct.

Being low season in December there are usually "walk in" specials, ie no need to book just turn up. If you'd rather have the security of a confirmed booking though just email them, let them know that you're arriving in December and see what they come back with. Some places in Samoa do not vary their stated prices from season to season though so sometimes it's best just to turn up.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions.

I have only ever booked directly with each place ( via emials - yes sometimes you have to be patience, which is hard i know when your so excited about the holiday! and sometimes maybe ever resend the email if you have had no response.

if you notice a price difference i would just mention this in the email, and i am sure most places would sort something out.

enjoy making your holiday plans
