After staying one night stopover at Airport Lodge on arrival to Samoa, then 9 nights at Seabreeze Resort we continued to Sinalei Reef Resort to stay for 7 nights. The room we booked was a Garden View with Ocean Views. Well it was not as we expected. Think it was one of the original buildings (Falas) the view well inbetween...

Spent a week here as a couple looking for a relaxing getaway. We expected clean spacious accommodation and certainly weren't disappointed. The hotel restaurant services nice food and the staff are friendly and laid back. Pool area is possibly the nicest i have ever seen! Only downside was that the hotel is relatively isolated with one beach cafe and another...

My wife and I went there a week after the cyclone went through in December and we were very aprehensive and worried that our holiday would be a flop. It ended up being a really good holiday. The resort was a bit battered with trees down here and there and a few buildings were damaged, but the people were very...

This is the best resort in the pacific based on my experience of 17 other pacific resort holidays. Why? The friendly staff, excellent cuisine, gorgeous physical beauty, wonderful spa, comfortable fale which combined created a very special holiday experience.

Had a simply wonderful time. The staff were friendly and attentive and went out of their way to make us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, in our bedraggled winter clothes and sleep-deprived after a red-eye flight. Food was great, especially the fresh fish. The resort makes the most of a stunning location. It's a long way from anywhere...

Our stay was made special by the wonderful Samoan people that work at Sinalei. The location is perfect, and what would have made the stay better was a little attention to small things. We advised reception that our shower had no pressure and water dribbled out, they thanked us for letting them know but it was never fixed. The rooms...

I haven't been to any of the other hotels/resorts in Samoa but I'm sure this is the best one! The whole resort is so clean and manicured and just walking around the place you feel calm without a worry in the world. We went on a sort of 'luxury' surfing trip. Since I don't surf I stayed at the resort...

This was our first trip to Samoa (Mar-Apr 2013). We were looking for a relaxing holiday where we could just enjoy our surroundings and take a breather from the stresses of daily life....well Sinalei and the wonderful staff certainly exceeded any expectations we had. From the moment we were met at the airport we could not believe how lovely everyone...

Had our first Samoan trip this May, and we were hoping for a world class experience. We were not disappointed. The location speaks for itself, beautiful and serene. My wife and I felt completely at home, and the staff could not have been friendlier. We were looking for a true taste of Samoa, and Sinalei delivered. We don't travel to...

This was a great place to visit. Superb service and good food. The Fale was right over the water and it created a truly magical experience. Neat board walk too for couples only dining. Afternoon tea is served each and the breakfasts were good too. A little far from Apia but still, you got to see the scenery on every...
