So So Hotel in not the greatest locationPosted Feb 17, 2014
Pros: Fairly nice view if you you get a room facing the ocean. Nice pool and Tiki Bar.
Cons: Need to improve on the transportation options since there is nothing close to the hotel.
Location: Location is terrible
Chose this hotel since we had a layover before going to Bora Bora. Decided to spend a weekend in Papeete just to experience the island and thought this place was the best value based on the reviews of others. The hotel itself seemed fairly well taken care of and the rooms were up to date and well furnished. the location of the hotel is not the greatest - there is virtually nothing nearby so you are pretty much captive. Food and drinks in the hotel are very expensive. There are a number of food trucks (Roulettes) within walking distance so that helped to keep our expenses down a bit. Hotel staff seemed pleasant for the most part although there was one woman at the front desk which was not accommodating at all and even seemed a bit rude. If you are heading here for a quick stop over before moving on to you next destination then this place is OK but any more than a night is just not worth the price - this is no destination resort...

Tahiti hotelPosted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: Liked the room and location
Location: Right by the sea but you would need a car to do anything else. Nice water gardens plus beaches on the road heading round the coast.
Nice hotel right by the sea so try and get a sea view apartment. Nice looking infinity pool though didn't get to use it because it rained. Helpful staff . Food expensive though that probably applies to most of Tahiti but would probably recommend eating off site.

Expensive hotel near the ocean.Posted Feb 11, 2014
Pros: The infinity pool was very nice. Our room. which did not face the road or the ocean, was very quiet.
Cons: Lock on the door to our suite fell off as we were let in. We were told it would be fixed but it was not, during our 3 day stay.
Location: Nothing nearby to see so would need rental car or taxi.
Our suite was quite nice on first impressions. Onsuite was very large but only had sink and large shower which splashed water all over as it had no door. The toilet was in a room the size of our coffee table at home, in the hall, with the smallest sink we had ever seen. It had a well appointed kitchen, fortunately, as the buffet breakfast was priced at $40 US and the dinners at $60+. Out taxi driver from the airport told us of a nearby grocery store, which we used, as well as a food truck (really a trailer) right across the street which provided us with delicious dinners for about $10 US each. Unless you were a good swimmer the ocean was not good as the bottom was very rocky and there was no beach.

Location: There is not very much to do close by and it is at 20 Km from Papeetee.
We enjoyed very much a transit room to take a shower before leaving late at night to Los Angeles. This was appreciated.

Nice hotel, but...........Posted Jan 12, 2014
Pros: It was clean and had a nice pool area.
Cons: The staff didn't seem to know much about anything.
Location: The location is a dump, although the Blue Banana and the local roulettes are worth visiting.
Good things; * Hotel is nice, has a great pool and is clean and tidy * Hotel restaurant was very nice (but very expensive) * Shop over the road for all your requirements (but wine was cheaper at the supermarket about 10 minutes walk away) * The local roulettes - about five or six of them within a 5 minute walk most nights - take your own wine and eat with the locals * The excursions - we did Moorea and the 4x4 trip - both were excellent * The Blue Banana pizza place just down the road Bad things; * You cant use the beach due to "poor water quality"! * Snorkelling was extremely expensive as it required taking a boat out to the reef * The area around the hotel is disgusting - rubbish in the streets and polluted beaches * The lack of snacks available (a cheeseburger cost about NZ$30 as it came from the restaurant and you couldn't get an ice cream)

Wonderful hotel to stay in prior to our cruise.Posted Dec 30, 2013
Pros: We stayed in a lagoon view room. We were able to have our college aged children share the room with us for a fee.
Cons: Free wifi in the room and continuous air conditioning. Room key had to be in slot for any electricity.
Location: Not really near anything. 15 minute ride from the airport. There were a couple of roulettes within walking distance one evening.
Great infinity pool. Breakfast had many food selections. Breakfast was pricey. Offered fee wifi in the lobby. Room was very clean and comfortable. No guest laundry available.

Location: Its not really walking distance to anything, although there is a small mini market, and an ATM within 5 mins walk.
Beautiful hotel with a huge infinity pool and lovely pier that you can swim and snorkel around, and also watch the fabulous sunsets from. The rooms were fantastic - great wired internet, aircon, huge bed, bathroom, and even a kitchen with everything you could need. Its not really walking distance to anything, although there is a small mini market, and an ATM within 5 mins walk. They do transfers to Papeete 3 times a day, but do charge for it. They also offer excursions if you didn't want to hire a car and do it yourself.

nice resortPosted Dec 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very nice lagoon studio with complete kitchen. Free wifi in lobby was very fast. Very far from town so no shopping. Ordering meals in bar was cheaper than eating in dining room. Great place for a short stay.

A great place to stayPosted Dec 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
The food is excellent (although the breakfast buffet definitely was cold); the pool is supurb. Papeete, Tahiti, is not cheap and the US dollar exchange varies greatly. Cab trips to the same location did not have the same cost. There was no standardized pricing.
