I have stayed at Regina's twice with my daughter and it is our idea of heaven.
Regina's is basic and simple - original fales with mattress, mosquito nets - most of them right on the beach front. It is a family run business and the food is usually good - is of a better standard than many other places - although one does not go to Samoa for the food! Last time I was there they did a special umu before I left with delicious fresh fish and the local speciality of taro leaves and coconut milk - delicious. Also they also give you a simple lunch of sandwiches and fruit which many other places do not. Dinner and breakfast are very pleasant in the dining fale as they have a u shaped table and you get to know the other guests who are usually interesting and good to talk to. And all this for NZ $35 -$40 per person per night.
The fales are all set in grass which makes it more pleasant than being surrounded by sand. The swimming is good at high tide and you can still swim at low tide.
It is my favourite place in Manese and one of my favourite places in the world. My idea of heaven is to be there with friends and family and a big pile of books. But only go there if you are content with the simple things in life and are happy with very basic facilities.
