This place definitely grew on me. At first glance it seems a bit worn out but after a couple of days that didn't bother me at all. The communal bathrooms are kept clean, the fale we were in was overlooking the beach. The meals were huge and delicious and included traditional Samoan food (palusami and ūlu - breadfruit, pawpaw, fa'i, coconuts). The family who runs it are friendly and helpful. Our sons made friends with some of the young boys from the Tanu Beach Fale family. You wouldn't get that in a resort! The beach is safe for young children and our sons spent hours swimming and snorkelling. My husband also saw a turtle at high tide within the reef (I wasn't so lucky). The reef looks really healthy and there were amazing fish to see. This is a very laid back place - if you need lots of attention and bells and whistles this isn't for you, but if you want somewhere to completely unwind book in for as long as you can! We'll be back....
