4.7/5 Exceptional! (234 reviews)
The island of Taha'a is absolutely gorgeous and has many wonderful excursions to offer. We were disappointed by how outdated the resort was. The overwater bungalows need a serious overhaul. The walls were coming apart, there were stains all over the outdoor furniture and the bathroom had an "ick" factor. Every time the cleaning staff came in, they left behind huge clumps of hair and on one occasion, a disgusting cleaning rag was left on our furniture. There was a chunk in the wood floor missing as well. Overall, we didn't feel really comfortable/clean in the room.
I wouldn't recommend staying here for more than 3 days, unless you're doing tons of excursions. The resort pool is small and the bartenders at the pool seemingly didn't know how to make certain drinks on their menu. The staff that was supposed to hand out towels and snorkle equipment was almost never available and we were constantly sneaking in to grab items ourselves.
The resort only has one restaurant for dinner outside of the 5-course L'Ohiri so if you don't like the menu (which honestly, left much to be desired) then you're out of luck. The lunch restaurant was very good but I didn't like that food wasn't available at all times throughout the day. You had to be strategic about when to eat. We really enjoyed the Tiki Bar but wish it offered happy hour or was open earlier than 6.
Walking around the resort, you kind of felt like you were at an American campgroup. There weren't any frills/luxuries to the grounds.
