If you are heading to samoa - you must enjoy some of the friendly, caring hospitality that Tatiana's offers. This is a family business and the care taken of those staying there is fantastic. Conveniently located near some good restaurants, and supermarket, plus a short taxi ride to downtown Apia. Highly recomended! Thanks - Patrick and Shona!

I cannot rate Tatiana's highly enough after a truelly fantastic 4 weeks there! The rooms were cleaned regularly, with fresh bedding and towels and beds were comfortable with good air conditioning and fans also. The motel provides an excellent complimentary breakfast of tropical fruit, cereal, toast, eggs and usually some form of extra (Chad's pancakes were a personal favourite). It...

Tatiana's Motel was amazing - everyone was always so accommodating and helpful for the duration of our stay! The rooms had brilliant air conditioning and were cleaned regularly. It is only a five minute walk from the supermarket and also the hospital for medical students doing placement in Samoa. The family were always so friendly and Chad and Sandra especially...

I cannot recommend Tatiana's highly enough! As a medical student it was THE perfect place to stay. It is the people that make it. Chad never stopped giving his absolute all to ensure we had a great stay. He offered everything from golfing trips, to hitting the best swimming spots, to buying uncountable rounds of drinks! He couldn't do enough...

I recently stayed at Tatiana's for 4 weeks whilst on medical elective and would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone traveling to Apia, especially medical students. It is conveniently located, 5 minutes walk from the hospital and 5 minute taxi to town. We stayed in a triple room which was spacious, clean and well equipped with an ensuite/fan/aircon/fridge.

Tatiana's was an excellent place to stay. I would highly recommend it to med students and tourists alike. We stayed in the triple share room which was clean, had plenty of space, en suite bathroom, mini fridge and best of all air conditioning. Unfortunately the pool was being built during our stay but should be a great addition for 2015....

The place was amazing and conveniently located close to the hospital. Great, affordable rooms which were air conditioned. The family took us to attractions and took us out to enjoy the nightlife and made us feel at home, especially Chad and Sandra.

Recently stated at tatianas for 2 months with another medical student for our elective. It's prefect for students, good value, nice air conditioned rooms and only a short walk to the hospital. The family and staff looked after us really well, felt very welcome the whole time. Would definitely recommend it for all students

I stayed at Tatiana's motel for one month whilst carrying out my medical elective at the local hospital. I instantly felt welcomed to say the least. The family that own the motel live there too so we would dine at the same time and catch up on what we'd been up to. They invited all the guests to the family...

I had the most wonderful time at Tatiana's as a student, we were so well taken care of by Mama, Papa, Chad, Alex and the rest of the Tatiana Family.

“Ask for the rooms away from the road- they have better air con and the water is warm. Be wary though these rooms are always in demand so you may have to start out front and work your way in.”
