Located on American Samoa, the Tradewinds Hotel offers families the perks they crave for a tropical vacation: an outdoor swimming pool; an onsite restaurant, coffee shop and bar; an internet cafÃ©; tour desk for local excursions; and water sports rentals to enjoy at the beach. There’s also a laundry room at the hotel.
Guestrooms are equipped with balconies and coffee machines. Standard rooms are best for families, with two double beds in each. Suites are also a good option for families, with two full bathrooms, sofa beds and kitchenettes with mini-fridges, microwaves and coffeemakers.

We ate at the Equator Restaurant, and tried their sliders, a club sandwich, and the soup of the day. The chicken was inedible: full of gristle; the fries and soup were just OK. The white rice was also OK.
Service was friendly. We sat in what is almost a room without light, until we opened the curtains.
There is a small snack bar down the hall from the Equator, with a few sad-looking pastries and sandwiches.
Very comfortable accommodation. The Deluxe Suite has very comfortable king size bed.
Only downside is having to pay for internet- I’m just spoiled by other hotels providing complimentary WiFi to guests.
