My family had booked out the resort for 3 nights while my sister was getting married in Dec 2013.
Unfortunately the GREAT staff and food was let down by two owners and an inexperienced wedding planner named Karleen Rasmussen. The owners called the bride 'Maria' which was incorrect and also happily placed their table at my sisters wedding next to the head table while wearing their everyday t-shirt and shorts while the staff wore immaculate uniforms.
Also the wedding planner came and visited on the Thursday before the wedding and then only showed up on the wedding day expecting the MC to run around and do everything else. Guests had to sort music out and stand next to the stereo for music during the wedding and first dance which should have been taken care of by the wedding planner.
No walk through of what was to happen and no practice took place. She didn't even know who the groom was on the day.
The wedding was delayed by HOURS because of the weather, but Karleen advised that there was nothing to worry about as the owner said it would clear up - obviously it didn't and had to have it inside which took another hour to move and arch.
Whoever decided tall vases on tables at a sit-down function were acceptable was deluded as many pictures and videos were blocking peoples faces and guests could not speak to each other unless they physically moved them.
Couldn't understand why the mirrors were on the side of the wall so you had to turn your head or walk into the shower to view face on and the tea and coffee in each room was in the bathroom next to the basin and toilet.
Unfortunately being a Samoan and having family in the village of Lotofaga and being treated especially by the owners was very disappointing and excusable.
I would stay here again for the pool, the view, the food and for sure the staff - but would never have a function here unless it was planned by myself.
