TravelPod Member ReviewsDave Parker Eco Lodge Apia
I enjoyed my one night stay at Dave's Eco-Lodge. Everyone was very friendly and solicitous. I like the informality and homeyness of the lodge. My room was basic in the older section but I had a wonderful view of Apia at night. In the morning I got to drive into Apia with the owner. I had dinner and breakfast here; they were very good, but huge portions!

I also came up on the disturbing realization that I left my wallet in the rental car. Luckily they were closed on Sunday so the car was there Monday morning.
... up doing a loop or getting stuck down dead ends. It was so frustrating and ultimately we were a little scared as we had no idea where we were going. It was like not knowing the answer to a crossword or the link to the next puzzler and all we wanted to do was to look at the back page upside down for the answer. I could tell Dais was severely anxious as she couldn't swallow and her foot was wobbling over the break. She wasn't just being a gimp she was genuinely petrified. Eventually it got ...
... us; waiting for those who had gone in to return, we reclined by the pool. In the end, nobody had the strength for any excursions and we lazed about the watering hole the whole day. Inquiries into a potential fishing trip did spark a flurry of activity in the early evening, but with a pizza night on the horizon my mind was too frazzled to really care. The variety of flavours of pizza on offer was amazing, and combined with chocolate cake for dessert everyone ...
