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.

Pros: Location; Overwater bungalows; Sea; Kayaks; View; Swimming pool; Breakfast
Cons: Flexibility with checkout time.
We really loved our stay at the Manava, and especially our overwater bungalow. Really amazing. Service was excellent and swimming pool was great. Thanks. Two remarks, however. First, it's unacceptable for a hotel in this price range the early checkout (11 am). We understand that rooms need to be cleaned and prepared for new guests, but the early checkout (compared to checkin after 2 pm) is simply too early! Second, we are a guy couple, but during our whole stay, we were always referred to as Mr. and Mrs. A. Common, this is 2017 and not 1954! Hotels need to be prepared to receive Mr. A and Mr. B, Mrs. C and Mrs. D and/or Mr. E and Mrs. F. Why the presumption that we were an "ordinary" couple? We checkin and gave our names, but the hotel was unable to correct the names (and gender) during our whole stay...

Worth staying at this 4 star hotel

Posted Dec 25, 2016
The hotel has a very nice infinity pool, you can borrow paddle board, kayak and snorkeling gear for free. The buffet breakfast is delicious with crepes, ready to order omelets,... The staff is friendly, especially the guy at the swimming pool booth. They host a program to grow dammaged corals, which is awesome!

Great location but!

Posted Dec 12, 2016
front desk was very disorganized. They forgot to order taxi and book dinner reservation . Rooms are nice but mattresses are like water beds. Over water venandahs are small. Food quality is very poor.

perfect place for a well rounded vacation

Posted Dec 6, 2016
The hotel has an infinity pool, private beach and access to the ocean and lagoon. It is walking distance from the shops and market. It's a convenient and beautiful place to relax and enjoy the excursions. It's a great central location and the rooms are beautiful and clean. The staff is great and the price is reasonable. Would definetly stay there again!
