Tom and Ta'aloga Drabble, who did a terrific job with the Sadie Thompson Inn , have completely refurbished two wings of the original Rainmaker Hotel (first opened in 1965), which had gone steadily downhill until being shuttered several years ago. All their rooms have sea views, and there's a half-moon beach in front (this is the only place to stay beside a beach in American Samoa). The complex has a restaurant, bar, and swimming pool. Saturday is fiafia night here. With the beach and proximity to town, this my choice in American Samoa.
