We LOVED Samoa so much it's great how it's still so quiet and not touristy at all.
The resort was great and they upgraded us to the honey moon suite! Anthony also proposed to me!!!!!so it will always be a special holiday for us ( yahoo so excited !)

We stayed at Saletoga sands resort in May and absolutely loved it, the staff were wonderful and owners Gavin and Lou are very nice people. Everything about the resort is great, from the free sports equipment to the beautiful rooms to the swim up bar! Especially good and a surprise was how accomodating they were with transport and car hire. We could hire a car directly from the resort for a day and a few times we just asked for a lift down to tourist attractions or other resorts for lunch and they were more then happy to do that, and then pick us up later. Also a highlight was the fishing charter organised by Gavin, a must do if you are into fishing!!! We will definitely be returning to Salatoga one day, if only to visit the wonderful friends we made with all the staff members!! Can't wait to come back.

We loved every moment of our stay at Saletoga Sands! The Resort is set in a picturesque location, just beautiful. We had an Ocean View villa. A very clean and well-presented room, just a few steps away from the sea, pool and restaurant and bar. The outdoor shower was a real novelty, though we felt a little exposed, our room being so close to the bar. The staff were helpful, and friendly. The spa was lovely, we had back massages and were given free foot massage vouchers on arrival. The tours provided by the resort were well organised and good value for money. Our tour guides were awesome - must do's are the To Sua Trench, Apia Markets, Sliding Rocks and Turtle Feeding! Car hire at the Resort is really easy, and driving around the island is no problem. The meals at the restaurant were well cooked, well presented and tasted great (so did the cocktails!). It was also awesome to head out snorkelling right on our doorstep, and to go kayaking and try paddleboarding! We couldn't fault a thing!
