Not worth it

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Hotel staff was inconsistent. Some were friendly others didn't even share a smile including the first person we saw at the front desk. When we got to our room, we realized that our toilet was leaking and smelled of sewer. We asked the front desk to address it but when we returned later that night it was still leaking and reeked of sewage. We were forced to use one of our bath towels to soak up the water every time we flushed. Inexcusable. Not the experience we wanted on our honeymoon. Thankfully we were at another hotel the first few days.

Fisrt of all , be assured that we are all very sorry that your experience with us did not match your expectation. However it is very important for us that you contact me ( I can't find clients from Hawaii) at: directeur.general@manavamoorearesort.pf in order to tell me what room you were in, as none of our log books shows any problem with a toilet water leak and we do not have any note mentionning a request of repair in our maintenance book. I am not saying that it did not happen , but I need to find out where dysfonction was if, in fact, we are well talking about MAnava Moorea.

Nice facilities but not restful!

Posted Jun 4, 2017
Pros: The facilities were clean and the on-site diving company (Moorea Blue Diving) was excellent.
Cons: There should be a noise curfew of 11:00p.m. at the latest.
Location: The nearby town was close and we enjoyed it for shopping and meals.
The facilities are well maintained, however the overall property is quite small, so everything feels close together. When we booked a deluxe room over the water we were expecting a quiet, restful experience. Unfortunately, the restaurant was directly across a small swimming area from us, and stayed open for a loud party (music and people yelling) until midnight. It was after 12:30 before the attendees quieted down so we could sleep.

Thanks you for staying with us and we all do hope that you will keep good memories of your stay . I am sorry that the music and party disturb your evening. It is always difficult to please everybody , some like to party at night someother don't. But I like to say that your are taken in great consideration, I gave instructions to close the little beach bar which was open at night in order to protect the quietnes of our guests . Sunny regards to you .

An amazing hotel in a magical place

Posted Apr 27, 2017
Pros: We loved the location, service, staff, amenities and beauty
Cons: We were happy with everything
Location: It is a 5 minute walk from shops, restaurants and a super market. All activities on the island are about 10 minutes drive away
Manama Beach Resort certainly did not disappoint. The location was excellent - close to all attractions and walking distance to shops. The resort was beautiful, intimate and cozy. It had a Tahitian feel to it and was not a large chain type of hotel feeling. It has a nice mix of garden bungalows, beach front bungalows and over the water bungalows. It was so nice to have such friendly, caring staff that went above and beyond to service our needs. We had our 2 kids with us and they had it set up with extra beds at no charge despite the website saying it would be an extra charge. We had an over water bungalow which was out of this world. We jumped off our balcony into the ocean and snorkeled amongst the coral reef just below our bungalow. There was even a glass cut out in the floor of the bungalow that we could see the coral reef and fish below us. The room was always clean and every night the staff would come in to clean it up again and place beautiful flowers on our pillows. On our first night they brought a delicious pineapple cut out and refilled. We rented kayaks and paddle boards and snorkel gear at no charge. This was a dream vacation for us and they certainly delivered on that.

Good stay - can be improved with better service

Posted Mar 19, 2017 on Hotels
We booked a room with a private pool - overall was a pretty good stay. Room itself was nice and spacious, pool was very nice (it was small though) Pool area is lovely - view is slightly blocked by overwater bungalows but its not bad by any means. Manava Beach Resort is in a good location - close to shops / bank / activities etc. Food was pretty good - maybe lacking in a bit of variety. Wifi was disappointing in our room - was barely usable, we had to goto the bar to get proper reception (this was problematic for us as we needed to book things urgently so we wasted lot of time) Frustrating thing we came across was lack of communication, staff didnt inform us of live bands (if we knew there was a live band during one particular night we wouldnt have booked dinner elsewhere - note that im not talking about the scheduled dancing + band twice a week) and also changes in wifi passwords (which wasted time for us)

Thank you for staying with us and for choosing Moorea Manava to spend your vacation. Yes! You are right! But I guaranty that the wifi is truly our N°1 priority, and we are on good tracks to finally solve the problem of connection. The problem is not for the hotel to have the wifi , the problem is to get the technology to allow several dozen of connections in the same time. We work in relation with the island Wifi provider to achieve this goal. Concerning the special band evening, I am sorry that you did not see the flyer we put in each room, and the poster posted at the entrance of the restaurant and bar. But you are probably like me … when I travel; I never read the paper found in my hotel room. Sorry that you missed the special event. Please accept our sincere apologies for this.

Lovely, relaxing atmosphere. Only downside was there was an aquacise class in the pool a couple of afternoons on weekdays with some interesting music.

Beautiful hotel in the lagoon

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Upon arriving, we decided to pay for an upgrade to the bungalows over water. best decision ever. The bungalows are spacious with gorgeous view of the lagoon. The hotel provided us with snorkeling gear and we explored the reef right outside our room. The swimming pool, free use of kayaks and the restaurant were fabulous. The concierge arranged a few activities for us and we were totally delighted with the whole day trip through the lagoon with snorkeling and swimming with the sharks and the sting rays. Lunch on the boat was exquisite.

We had a premium bungalow over the water, and spent an enjoyable 4 days relaxing on our deck. The included breakfast was excellent, and we appreciated the attentive staff who kept our room tidy (with fresh flowers) each day. We also appreciated the excursions staff who helped with dinner bookings and travel assistance.

Nice resort - over water bungalow

Posted Jan 31, 2017
Pros: Location, service, scuba!!!
Cons: Have one bungalow area for adults only. They can be noisy.
Location: Don't know, I only focused on scuba the 2 days I was there.
Excellent! Good experiences with staff - all around. Very helpful. Don't miss the opportunity to get a massage. No fruit fru... as good and deep tissue as my regular massage therapist at home. The scuba diving was fantastic! The dive master and office staff were very helpful recommending dives at other islands I am still visiting. Thank you all for making this a pleasant experience to French Polynesia AND I'll be back know at the end of my trip.
