Tanu Beach Fale's
Tanu Beach Fale's Reviews
Full of entertainment and very affordable fales Aug 01, 2010
The fales located right on the beach front, however there is a fence in between the fales and the beach, so you can't go directly from your fales to the beach (need to go around the fence).
It cost WST$50 per night including breakfast and dinner. The portion of the food is good and plenty of entertainment at night time.
There is Tanu shop selling food and anything you need from shampoo, soap, tissue, etc.
Infront of the fales has another shop selling chicken bbq (cost WST$7). It was delicious.
There is more young people staying in this fales than at Jane's. The atmosphere is more lively.
If you are into partying, stay at this place, however if you like quite, stay at Jane's beach fales.

Tropical Paradise on Half a Shoestring Oct 15, 2006
This had to be the friendliest and most welcoming place we were lucky enough to experience in Samoa. The setting was idyllic, the people were so friendly and accommodating and you weren't left wanting for anything.
At 50 tala a night, it's one of the more decently priced places to stay - breakfast and dinner are included, and if you're still feeling peckish, you can take the bus back to the markets at the port, or even buy a whole range of (tinned) goods from the store that they have at the fales. The fales themselves are very basic but very comfortable, and it's all part of the experience - especially the chattering geckos that inhabit the roofs.
There's an internet cafe just down the road, and you can take a half hour wander down the road to swim with the turtles (10 tala). There's also an option to go on a guided tour, which is well worth it, even just for the canopy walkway - oh my! :)
On the flipside, if all you want to do is get away from it all, the beach is the perfect place. You can chill out all day underneath a palm tree without a care in the world.
The social aspect of it is great as well - you get to meet so many people from all over the world, and with nothing to stress about, everyone there is laid back and genuine.
