Fao Fao Beach Fales Saleapaga Reviews
Cheap accommodation right on the beach front Aug 02, 2010
Fao Fao beach fales located right on the beach front with a beautiful scenery and delicious meals included in the price (breakfast and dinner). The fales itself is very basic, however it is really cheap,cost WST$50 per night for stay longer than one week. Alternatively you can ask for lunch to be included as well (additional payment of WST$10 per day).
The beach itself really sparkling clear with amazing view of the coral and fish (good for snorkling).
The fale (house) is quite spacious, however shower and toilet is communal, with a separate toilet and shower for ladies and man.
Every morning you wake up with the sun shine on your face and the sound of the waves. Well.. for the first couple of nights I couldn't sleep as the waves sounds was very loud, however I get used to it.
The fales owner (Roseta and the family, Vaa'a, Tapu, Tina, Mareta and Lelua) is really friendly and helpful if you need something. You can have a ride to Apia township with them (1.5hours drive form Saleapaga) and then back again in the afternoon.
The place itself was worst hit by the Tsunami in 2009 and currently they are rebuilding the place (12 ensuite rooms next to the restaurant). It was amazing experience to stay with the family and listening to their survival story.
