The courtyard, entryway and pool grounds were excellent with nice clean white sand beach. Staff was friendly. The bed and bedding were crisp and clean and comfortable.
The carpeting was old, stained and musty smelling. The bathroom was very mildewy smelling despite the strong use of bleach for cleaning. The food was suboptimal quality for the price.
Great location, only a 5 minute taxi ride from the Papeete Faaa Airport. Large, clean rooms and good restaurants and bars on site.
Uncomfortable bed, expensive internet and no wireless access. Far from the city center at least a $30 taxi ride into Papeete.
The location from the airport
The cost to and from the airport vary a lot from 1000 to 20000 8@6. Only 1 lift work for the 2 weeks no sign to get it fixe , stafff gave mixt message onhotel info , room are old and need a revamp , the hotel beach and pool is full ofnon hotel residant which make chairs and service poor
Nice, well equipped and clean rooms. The beach and garden are quite nice. Big free parking in front of the hotel. Great location: city is not far away (15 minutes drive), and a big supermarket (Carrefour) is within a walking distance from the hotel (10 minutes by foot). It's a good base for trips.
Snorkling is not possible - water isn't clear enough - so if you want to see a beautiful Tahitian sea you need one to go to another place (at least half an hour drive) or (better) change the island to another one. The real Tahiti (amazing sea and nature) is far away from the city center and hotels like this one.
The poolside bar was very nice, but waiters or even mangers doesn't speak english at all, and it took ages to send us the drinks!
warm and inviting pool, good food and great beds and of course lovely setting,
expensive!! Love seafood but menu needs a bit more variety.
The rooms were spacious. Large bed, although it did appear to be two pushed together. Balcony was also spacious, even the mountain side view was good. Only 5 minutes from the airport, but you'll still get ripped off on the fare.
Staff at reception were quite imcompetent. Checking in, checking out and any kind of questions or enquiries were met with indifference. Often they might simply walk away in mid conversation or begin to talk in french to co-workers, all the while never explaining what was actually happening. There were also a number of errors made in billing, by the bar, room service and mini bar - which took alot of time to ammend.
We had been travelling since 04.30 our time and arrived at 18.30 - our time. The last meal we had on the aircraft was 5 hours before we arrived at the hotel. We were told there was nothing we could have to eat anywhere in the hotel.We arrived before 22.00 that is when we were asking. We were told the chef had gone. For an establishment of this quality surely someone could have at least made a sandwich for us??? Not happy
It suited our purpose of an overnight stop.
The smell in the rooms of damp was terrible. The whole place needs some air through it. Both occasions we stayed there was only 1 lift working.
Very good considerating prices inTahiti. Wifi should be included in rates according with it,s category of "luxury hotel"
Wifi should be included in rates.
The hotel is really nice, the room is also nicely designed, nice bar and beach.Very good value!
No wifi in the room
The location is fantastic, a beautiful beach and fabulous views of Moorea. It was very handy to the airport at Faa. The swimming pool was gorgeous. The staff at reception were so friendly and welcoming. The Transit room was a great way to relax and freshen up before a midnight departing flight. The decoration of the rooms was fresh and cheerful. Food was prepared quickly, and was always fresh and tasty.
Nice hotel, good pool, right price,quiet and relaxing
Large markup on minibar items, (can of coke $6aud ) not much English speaking staff.
Nothing to like. It was like staying in Townsville!
No fitness Slow & unfriendly service at bar Limited menu Average location Old & tired hotel
To much money for the product.Tahiti is very expensive. Tourist feels theirselves ripped off. Rooms are not comfortable due to not enough space for cloth end items.Our room looks just like a chinese grocery store..
