As most others have expressed its a much older property. I'm sure this was the place to be back in the day. If you're looking for a resort to spend the entire time I'd stay elsewhere like the Hilton or Intercontinental but if you're looking for a nice clean place to rest & relax our room was spacious and the beds extremely comfortable! (Please note- The pool is closed for refurbishment until May 2023. We never got to try the restaurant. They were having a private party so it was closed for a few hours. We tried visiting after it opened to the public but it was confusing where to go, we tried asking a few of the staff but they got irritated with us asking so we ended up leaving and ate elsewhere)

Hotel room was roomy and clean. The gardens are beautiful and constantly attended. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The view of the bay from the restaurant was superb and the breakfast was very good. Order the crepes and pancakes in addition to the available fruit. Yum.

Location of the hotel is quiet and peaceful with surrounding mountains., bus stop is around the corner . Taxis were expensive.! The pool looks natural with a waterfall cascading into it. it feels like you are in the rainforest. It has a Black sand beach that are just steps away from the hotel . You need to get a key from the front desk to access the beach. Dining has a great view overlooking the water . Continental breakfast was ok, it didn't offer many varieties ( but I am vegetarian so that might be why) The rooms were clean with a Polynesian design. The lower floor is nice because the slider opens to a cement patio and grass with views of the mountains. You can see the ocean from a far and listen to the waves. Hot tub is under renovation ( darn, I wish I knew that)

Beautiful grounds. rooms were large and satisfactory. Dining overlooked the sea. It does seem like it’s better days have passed, but it worked out perfectly for what I needed without costing a fortune.

Very friendly and helpful staff, in a very safe environment. We got directions from the staff and passers-by and could travel by public transport safely and easily go to town, to beautiful beaches and local attractions. The hotel setting and room view of the inner park is gorgeous,

Beautiful oasis in Papeete. About a 30 minute walk to city centre. Grounds and rooms are well looked after. This property is on the waterfront but there is a wall between the beach & property. Entertainment in restaurant on weekends but bar closes at 9 during week.
