We arrived really early in the morning and they allowed an early check and said Merry Christmas; once this happened I knew it would be a great stay. My parents also stayed here and loved their stay. The room was comfortable and...

My husband, two children and I stayed here for 10 nights. We faced many of the same issues as other reviewers on here faced. We did enjoy our stay though there were several things that let this hotel down. - rooms were serviced, but with no fresh towels. - the food is extremely expensive for how bad it tasted. We...

We spent three nights in Apia and were thrilled to find this hotel at a special rate. A few friends had recommended it to us before but it really takes being there to understand how amazing the Tusitala is.
