I would give anything to be back at Saletoga Sands right now! We stayed for a week and everything was absolutely perfect - the rooms were spacious and light, the swimming pool was amazing and the beautiful beach is postcard perfect but the thing that really made our holiday was the people! The people of Samoa are so lovely and the staff at Saletoga Sands were just amazing!! It was so nice to see the same smiling faces every day and the local staff were a great laugh. We took our 3 year old and 9 month old on holiday and the staff were brilliant with them - in fact we didn't see our 3 year old for most of the holiday as she was off "helping" the staff around the resort! Tina in particular is very much missed by Miss Three. Traveling with kids is hard so it is nice to be made to feel welcome, rather than a nuisance!
It was also lovely to get to know some of the other groups around the resort, the other families, the "girls on tour" celebrating their birthday with a pool party, watching the All Blacks beat England with the other New Zealanders - Saletoga Sands does not feel large and impersonal like some other resorts I have stayed at where nobody attempts to get to know anybody else. It has a more laid back vibe and that certainly made a difference to how much we enjoyed our holiday!
Congratulations again to the owners on creating such a beautiful resort. Gavin and Lou went out of there way to make sure everything was perfect during our stay - it is the little details that make the difference between a good holiday and a great one and from the airport pick up (the shuttle picked us up from the airport with fresh coconut and cool face towels and we were met by the owners at the hotel at 10pm with sandwiches) until the day we left (farewelled with a song by the staff and personal goodbyes from the owners) the holiday was just perfect! We will certainly be back!
