Alternatively, there are now holiay homes you can book online, at a fraction of the cost of a hotel. and it comes with add ons like cheap rentals, airport transfers etc. ndmore importantly, easy to view avaiability online.
Here's a fantastic one you should consider in future (damn it, i should really get commission for doing this haha)
Nicks Place at Palisi approx $70 SAT per night,...what a steal!...and very prompt response fom owners when you contact them.
Another great deal that comes with a lovely pool and car rental, very new is Samoa Holiday Homes.

Bottomline is, ...it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg!
Bon voyage (: see you in Sah-mo-ah.
