Review:   Recommended for: Couples, families

Pros: Dramatic entrance architecture. Wonderful sunsets. Impressive Polynesian live shows.

Cons: If you're just staying 1 night, before heading to the outer islands (as many people do), it's a fair drive from the core of Papeete.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Nice facilities. A little pricey, but welcome to Tahiti! The hotel has a great Tahitian dance program every Friday night that is VERY worth seeing. On the first Saturday of the month they have a fire dance program. Not as polished as the Friday night program but who doesn't like to see fire dances performed by 12 year olds! That was not a typo... Room was late and bathroom well appointed. Uses the 2 prong plugs common in Europe. So bring an adapter. Pool has a Sandy bottom and beach all around it. So it looks and feels like the ocean Beach... Only with fresh water. Kind of nice.

Review:   This hotel has beautiful grounds, nice sized rooms with great views, and is in a decent location, but it is in need of a major renovation. The rooms are dated and the over the water bungalows are closed and appear to be crumbling. It isn't a bad stop for a day or two before moving on to one of the other French Polynesian islands, but is probably not somewhere that you'd you want to be for an entire week.

Review:   Has all the amenities. Just some limited hours but better hours than the local economy.

Review:   Great, friendly, and helpful staff. The hotel rooms are hotel rooms, so it is what it is. They can help you catch tours and other things, and can help you get a rental where the rental agency picks you up from the hotel, and then you can park the car at the hotel and they will pick-up. There is are dancers on Saturday night, and you can just grab a drink at the bar overlooking the diners instead of spending the $100 per person on the meal. The happy hour at the beach bar is Americano style bar food and the drinks are half off, the drinks are still pricey, but live a little. You can get kayaks, snorkeling gear, and other outdoor activity items near the pool. All around you could stick around the place and not be bored, but there are also some good places to ear in the shopping center. Chez Remy, the patisserie, and let Nemo are good food options. We also loaded up at the super market that has some fresh fish options for cheaper eating. There are other great things to do around the island, but I am only reviewing the hotel.
