Reviewed 19 May 2014

My husband and I spent last week at the fabulous Seabreeze Resort. I doubt my review will do justice to the incredible time we had, but i'll try! Firstly, we chose sea breeze based on the trip advisor reviews on this page, and also from Wendy (one of the owners) extremely helpful and prompt response to any questions I had sent her. After experiencing the resort and service there ourselves, I can say that the reviews are spot on! it really is THAT good!

The drivers to greet you at the airport are friendly and make you feel at home the instant you arrive. Not having to "check in" once you get to the resort is great, leaving guests to start their 'unwinding asap!
The grounds are immaculate, lush with tropical landscaping. All ocean/reef VIEW rooms maintain a sense of privacy whilst opening out onto the pool/ocean side. I personally think there didn't seem to be much difference between Ocean or Reef view rooms, and if anything, wouldn't pick room one (ocean view) as it's right next to the reception/entrance.

The Ocean FRONT rooms are flush with the cliff face so you literally are ocean front. in most other resorts you can be quite disadvantaged if you don't get an ocean front room, but in my opinion those of us in ocean/reef view still got to enjoy views out to the sea so it wasn't a big deal at all.

The rooms are tastefully done, with every comfort you could want. There is no TV and i was pleasantly surprised to see what a positive effect this had on our experience. It was absolute bliss to only hear the ocean as background noise for 7 days! The resort is well stocked with books, magazines and games if you forget your own.

What we really loved was the intimate and small feel of the whole place. You didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve your place by the pool or on the beach. there was room for everyone, without it seeming crowded. Again, something that had a very positive effect on our experience!
Right from the minute you arrive, you feel welcomed by the staff and they make it clear that nothing is a problem if it'll make your stay more comfortable. We are vegetarians and the chef was very accommodating to our requests. The restaurant is completely separate to where the accommodation is (good to maintain that sense of privacy and quiet around the rooms/pool) The only thing we would have liked to see as regular items on the menu would be a few simple samoan dishes! we enjoyed samoan cuisine at other resorts and it was a shame to only get to enjoy it on seabreeze's friday fiafia night when the chef does such an incredible job at it. *Highly recommend ordering the palusami on fiafia night, it is divine! *

We really enjoyed the quiet, peacefulness of the resort after having only experienced bigger, busier ones. You really feel 'disconnected' from all the rush of regular life, and it doesn't take long to slow down and just enjoy sleeping, reading, swimming and eating all day. Lots of great activities on site (kayaking/snorkeling/walks) and close by. We hired a car and enjoyed driving out around the island too. You hire a car at the resort, saving you any hassle. We had an unforgettable time at Seabreeze. It wasn't just the gorgeous grounds and ocean site that made our trip so memorable, but also the genuine and friendly service you receive. A truly fabulous place to stay and one that you leave knowing you will return to at some point!

Stayed for five nights early April on our first part of 12 days in Samoa probably should have finished here as it will take a lot to beat this place, stayed in two different rooms would be happy in any of the rooms as they are all good and being a small place you get that personal attention from staff who have great pride in their work place, The beach while not being one of the best on the island is fine for a swim and snorkel . It is a good base for exploring this side of the Island it is a decent drive from Apia and the Airport especially with the low speed limit although necessary. At the end of the day I was great to return and have an enjoyable meal and relax in an outstanding environment and would love to return one day, Enjoyed seeing the staff singing when guests leave a lovely end to a great stay.

Room Tip: Depending on budget but all are good.

We stayed at Seabreeze resort for three nights over the Easter weekend. There were sixteen of us - one large extended family group. We all had such a wonderful time and Chris, Wendy, Dora and all the staff at Seabreeze went out of their way to accommodate our group. On our way to the resort the drivers told us that Seabreeze was a great place to work and that it was like one big happy family, and that's exactly how we found it. Both the owners and staff have an obvious pride in the resort and so they should. The attention to detail is what separates it from other resorts. Everything is well maintained and nothing is too much trouble. They set up tables under the trees for our group to have lunch and provided us with transport (at a very reasonable rate)to the local water hole even though it was Easter sunday. They even sang us goodbye - a song about Seabreeze that the staff had written. We were sorry to leave and will be back for longer next time.

We stayed at Seabreeze for 10 days late Feb/March. We absolutely loved the resort. The staff were amazing really helpful and extremely friendly. Our accommodation was great lovely and clean. The food was AMAZING beautiful breakfast and always a superb dinner. We went on a one day tour with Matt who was a great tour guide he also was an awesome story teller and he was very knowledgeable about Samoa. One of our favourite spots was the swimming hole called tusua. Wendy and Chris were very helpful and friendly. Seabreeze will always be a special place for us as we got engaged there. I would recommend this restort and if in Samoa again would stay there. Would also recommend a massage with Lana. Hi to all the staff.

We stayed at Seabreeze for three nights and had a wonderful wedding. I don't know where to start because everything was amazing. Very private setting, lovely staff, great food, nice pool area and everyone at the resort made our wedding very special and unforgettable. The Fia Fia Night on Friday is great and wood fire pizza on Sat and Sun is also really yummy. I recommend this place to anyone and I would happily go back.
The only thing I could complain is the VERY expensive transfer. But the transfer comes free for 5+ nights stay.

We spent our 20th Wedding Anniversary here and renewed our vows - the most amazing 4 days. Everything was perfect, from the fabulous Honeymoon Point house, to the details of the renewal of vows ceremony and all the effort that was made to make our day (& whole stay) truly special – we do appreciate how MUCH effort was made. To hear from other guests that our beautiful decorations were practised for days before really blew us away! All the staff were wonderful throughout the whole stay and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend our 20th Wedding Anniversary – we will remember it as a very special time forever.

Honeymoon Point house is a very special place to stay.

We also appreciated the “little things” throughout our whole stay – staff always remembering our names, the private tours you organised for us (which was a great way to hear so much about Samoa and it’s culture along the way), transfers, farewell etc. Everything went off without a hitch!

Seabreeze is a credit to all of you and your hard work. You truly have created a special little piece of paradise there.

We have been to many places in the world and many islands – Fiji, Borneo, Tahiti to name a few and you and your wonderful staff are right up there with the best of them! Your location and atmosphere is just superb.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the Honeymoon Point House - you won't be disappointed!! Do tours with the resort...

We stayed here for 3 nights and can't really find any fault with it except maybe beach isn't the best. Staff were welcoming, friendly and proficient. Little touches like Chris (the boss) putting sandwiches and fruit in our room as was quite late when we got in and his advice on what to do and where to go. Great show was put on by the staff and meals were always really great. Lovely rooms with all the facilities. Would recommend this place and if in Samoa would stay here again. The Samoan people are so friendly.
