“Highly recommended Very family friendly for families with children”
Reviewed 24 July 2010

We are a NZ samoan family who stayed at Le Rics with our 3 young children (6,4,4) and father, in 2 units in July 2010, for 7 nights.

Found Le Rics to be very well suited for our young family. Very spacious, and our kids loved it there, especially the swimming pool. The pool is deep and would need parental supervision in the pool for young children. Private, very comfortable, Jenny and the staff were very friendly and accomodating.

I'd highly recommend Le Rics. Our twins have allergies, so we chose Le Rics because we needed a kitchen to cook meals and wanted our whole family of five to be in one unit. Our father had his own Unit too and the kids slept there too, and enjoyed going back and forth between our units. Le Rics really suited our family needs perfectly. Loved the fact that we could put the kids to sleep in their own room, and have the lounge to ourselves in the evening to relax!

We have stayed at different accomodation places in Samoa, but for a Samoan acommodation, would rate this as definitely one of the 'better' accomodation in terms of cleanliness, service, privacy, and comfort. If you are after a Motel, self-contained - this is the place to go!

Faafetai lava Jenny and staff. Ed, Michelle and kids.

We spent hours searching for a self-contained accommodation option in Apia for our recent 2-month work trip. We have a 14-month old son so we were quite specific in what we wanted - a 2-bedroom place with its own, fully-equipped kitchen, preferably serviced daily, with access to a pool. As the search continued, we grew more flexible about what we could do without - but then we found Leric on the web, and hoped our dilemma had been solved. And I'm happy it say - it was!

Leric consists of eight 2-bedroom apartments, and is run by the super-friendly Ricky and Jenny Craig. The Craigs are lovely people, they live on site which means they can be super-attentive to all their guests needs, but also manage to maintain a suitably discreet distance. Jenny and Ricky organised all the regular stuff with ease - laundry, bottled water and a dispenser, replacement of a microwave that wasn't working; but were also willing and able to go the extra distance - for example, we needed a nanny for our son for 1 - 2 hours a day, and jenny was able to find a wonderful woman from the neighbouring village for us.

The apartments are clean and bright and contained everything we needed. Each apartment has 2 bedrooms, a living area and dining room, a good sized kitchen, front and back porch, and a storage room for luggage. Our apartment was furnished simply but comfortably, with a queen sized bed and air conditioner in the main bedroom, and 2 singles (but no air con) in the 2nd bedroom. Hot water was available most of the time, and the kitchen was well stocked with eating and cooking implements, a stove, toaster, microwave, kettle etc. The living room had a TV. Each apartment also has a car port which is very handy. The apartment was kept clean by daily servicing (except Sundays) by the team of lovely cleaning ladies who we miss a lot!!

Leric offers a nice swimming pool (with no steps - we improvised by putting a plastic chair in the pool and using that to climb in and out!) and a tennis court. The pool is clean and we were so happy to have access to it on those hot Samoa afternoons.

Leric is about 15 minutes drive from Apia town, and if you stay there for a long period, or have a child, its quite handy to rent a car. Otherwise, taxis and buses are readily available.

Leric doesnt really offer food apart from breakfast - but they are planning to, and are currently building a dining fale and a bar.

Its not easy to find self-contained 2-bedroom places in Apia for short or medium term rentals; and its even harder to find accommodation that is clean, well-priced and with access to luxury amenities like a pool. leric ticks all of these boxes, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for self-contained accommodation.
