Everything at Tanoa was amazing apart from the pool not being open. It wouldve made it easier if it was cause We were very busy so had no time to actually go and use the complimentary offer that was given. Im kind of angry thought cause I paid full price for the room and when I went to ask for a pass to the pools i was told that Taumeasina is toooo packed at the moment. Service was good though, greeted genuinely if only it remained that way throughtout our journey with you. I will not be staying there again only because I wasnt offered a small little refund for not using the pool but was advertised when I paid full price but later was told via email. This is false advertising.

Worm issue and cleanliness requires improvement
When we checked in I had front desk operator who advised would cost $150 tala to check in earlier then normal so when asked what the actual check in time was he advised 10-12 theres not really a check in time in which I responded would return at actual check in time to which he then advised would waive it as he didnt want to get in trouble. The room we had been assigned (301) the bathroom (cleanliness) was poor, the toilet was discolored and requires a new one, the shower head was at hip level which is very frustrating when you are tall. Each morning we woke up with 3-4 worms that had crawled in the room overnight, we advised the front desk in which she said would pass on to manager but you could tell nothing would be done about it based on her delivery in response. We then checked out after six nights and returned for the last four nights prior to returning home and had the same issue with the worms. I found front desk staff not very helpful at all. I would recommend they provide more pillows as each room only offers one pillow per person. Every other hotel I have stayed its 2 pillows per person. Bar staff and the staff working at the buffet breakfast are absolutely amazing and would be the only reason why we would return to Tanoa Tusitala. Overall I would say our experience at Tanoa was average.

Birthday trip
The experienve at Tanoa was ok. The service killed my experience. The two people who changed my opinion on service was the young lady who did house cleaning on Sunday anf the rep who checked us out of the hotel. The rep who checked us in did really well until her attention was focused elsewhere. She said the porter was on his way but if we wanted to go to the room....we can go. She pounted us in the direction of the room. Then later that evening...we wanted to start my partners birthday with a few drinks and pupus at the hotel bar. We waited 5 minutes to be seated...another 5 minutes to be given a menu and when we were ready to order...nobody came to take the order. We ended up leaving without having our drinks and nobody even noticed. We thought maybe its because we were local.
