Review:   Recommended for: Families, couples

Pros: Very cool layout, with the bungalows scattered across a number of little islands. Dolphin experience is here, in the middle of the resort--pretty amazing. Also be sure to check out the turtles. Fantastic Polynesian buffet several nights a week. The range of choices is incredible, and the quality and flavors are top-notch. We were there with 2 10 year old kids and an 8 year old, and they all found tons of things they loved. The Top Dive dive operation on Moorea is based at this resort, which is super convenient if you're a diver. Totally reasonable dive rates too, less than you'd pay in Hawaii. There's a spot in the lagoon maybe 1000 yards from the resort where sting rays and blacktip reef sharks hang out. Tour boats and jet ski groups come there each day to swim with the sharks and rays. Totally safe for kids, but very exciting...you'll see 20 sharks and 4-5 rays around you at the same time.

Cons: Somehow doesn't look as Polynesian to me as some of the other resorts, I think mostly just due to the color of the bungalows. But this is pretty minor! The interiors of the bungalows are really nice, AC works really well, and there's lots of space around the bungalows so you have some privacy and quiet.

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:   Well deserved 4 star rating. There is a small room for improvement, and like many other hotels on Tahiti, this one is on need of remodeling. Examples for this need are numerous and there is no need to go in detail. Service is of truly 5 star hotel. Staff will leave no stone unturned to find away to assist you. Modernization of the entire property will leave the hotel without competition. Location of the hotel is good as well.

Review:   Gorgeous place. I love having the bungalow next to snorkelling worthy sea. The water is so clear! And it’s nice sharing the resort grounds with dolphins and turtles. Food is just average though.

Review:   Beautiful resort, delicious restaurants, pools with great vistas, top notch spas. On the downside the bungalow rooms let geckos into them, if hearing them crawling around on the ceiling is going to bother you get a standard room.
