I am in the very early research stage of trying to organise a holiday for our family to Samoa (will be next year). I was trying to get there earlier than that but finances changed so the holiday plan had to change. I was originally looking at staying at Aggie Grey Lagoon, beach resort, but after reading the comments in "Aggie Grey !!!!!!! Fail" I am having serious second thoughts. My husband and I have two children 10 & 13 who love the natural world so anything that includes water and animals would keep them happy. With this being our very first ever overseas holiday my husband would like to stay at a resort type place, the reason for this is that for a first visit we would have no idea what or where to eat and also would hate to find ourselves staying in accom that is not acceptable for over a week (and then hating our holiday and not returning). We were going to use this first visit as an opportunity to have a look around at the island and then see what accom there was available elsewhere and perhaps stay at a more traditional accom type next time. Any suggestions that you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I have done a little searching for things to do and see and the two things on the Kids must see list are To Sua Ocean Trench and Swimming with the turtles on the other island. I myself think I would chicken out on the Trench (afraid of heights). So any ideas for things to see would also be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for any help you can give me. Have a great day :-)
