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:   This resort was great for my wife and myself. Our bungalow faced the dolphin center and we were in close proximity to the sea turtle habitat. The resort had so much to offer that we almost had no reason to leave between going to the spa, eating excellent food, using the free amenities such as kayak and snorkeling gear and of course relaxing by the pool and the beach. When we wanted to book an excursion, the staff did a great job at helping us find something as well as kept us informed with schedule changes and whether cancellations due to rain. We loved it here!

Review:   Loved our stay! Highly recommend for couples of all ages and family friendly! The private Catamaran tour was Amazing as was snorkel and picnic. Surprise we swam with dolphins right there onsite as they have a Dolphinarium! Reasonably priced $$ too for the experience! Will recommend to many when they want to go to Tahiti! Food was excellent. Wine was affordable but liquor drinks were high priced$$, but don’t fret you can pick up a bottle if desired at store across street!

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.
