Our family of 5 spent 7 nights at Manumea in late June. We all loved the resort. We arrived around 2am at the resort and Luna and 2 other staff were waiting to greet us and take us straight to our room. We paid $425 ST per night for the 5 of us but I believed that it was good value for money for the standard of accommodation available in Samoa.
The room was modern and spacious with great decor and the outdoor bathroom was the highlight of the accommodation. Having a shower outside under the stars on the warm nights was divine. The air conditioning worked well in the room and on some nights left it off with just the ceilling fan running.
Breakfast was included and was adequate and consisted of fruit, toast and eggs cooked to our instruction. The dinning area was near the pool, under a large open samoan fale amid beautiful gardens in a relaxing setting. We ate at the resort on one night and the dinner was again adequate. If you want a great restaurant meal in an excellent setting look for the Treasure Garden chinese restaurant in town. Great tasting dishes and it only cost us 120 tala for the 5 of us and the servings were so large that we didn't finish the meal(took the leftovers in a take away tray). Definately the best meal that we had in samoa.
Samoa is such a beautiful place with so much to see. We spent our second week in Savaii which was even more beautiful. We stayed at the Savaiian Hotel for 7 nights which I will also shortly review.
After each day of travelling the kids used the pool on most evenings which was a great way to wind down with the inpool lights on.
Luna was a great host and was always helpful. Requests were always carried out with a smile and rooms were serviced daily. I highly recommend this resort as a base to explore the island.
