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:   By far the WORST customer service I have EVER experienced. Sat in the restaurant for 15 minutes and no server approached even though 3 or 4 were wondering around the restaurant. We finally had to walk up to a server and asked to be waited on. We sat for over an hour waiting on our food and eventually left after the server told us that the long wait time wasn’t her problem. We had similar problems at the bar as well as checking-in. Staff was completely incompetent and rude. We had several people we met traveling that had a poor experience as well. We will NOT be returning and highly recommend that you avoid this resort entirely.

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:   Overall a nice place to stay. We booked an off-site activity which departed very early and the hotel staff neglected to book our taxi (although the concierge submitted the request.) Luckily the company we booked for was able to accomodate our very late arrival and still salvage our day. The hotel staff was accomodating when there were issues that arised above this one as well. Unfortunately there is no shuttle service to/from airport or city center which would help add great value to the hotel.
