10/10 Exceptional

Very nice property even through renovations
The staff is extremely helpful/ friendly and accommodations (pool was in repair) are clean. Bus stop is close by to get in and out of town cheap. Food trucks a block away are excellent to eat local cuisine. If you are not wanting to venture out, the restaurant onsite has a great breakfast buffet of fresh fruits and bread, drinks and dinner at night are also a fine option. The beach and shoreline are steps away from a beautiful walk or view.

Happy customers
We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The grounds were beautiful and the staff was very kind and helpful. The rooms and beds were very comfortable. Only downside was their pool was under construction. Because of that they offered us complimentary breakfast for our stay. Loved being able to dine outside next to the ocean with the most amazing sunsets!

Needs to supply what is on the menu.
Lovely place, just a shame the pool was closed. Also although tea was on the drinks menu for ALL meals, they only let you have it in the morning! WHY? Plus no skim milk at all. Beautiful sunsets. Then on Saturday when we'd reserved a table for dinner, a woman who spoke no English was not going to let us into the restaurant!! So we had to insist to speak to the manager, when we got inside it was half empty till a lot later!

Never again
Poorly advertised as close to the airport with a shuttle. Hotel is in a really, really run down neighborhood full of graffiti with kids roaming the streets at 1:30 in the morning and plenty of roosters to keep you awake. Built in 1967 and hasn't changed much. Not ever coming back, probably a no star hotel.

Very satisfactory
The lodging was perfect for us. Very near the black beaches of Tahiti. About 20 to 30 minutes to the airport. All the receptionists encountered were helpful and accommodating. The lady ago clean our room on a daily basis was exceptional. I believe her name is Sonia. She was attentive to all our needs.

A Nice Quiet Hotel.
A nice quiet hotel, with units that have a patio leading on to the extensive green areas. The rooms are very spacious with high ceilings making them very comfortable. Bathroom was furnished with all the amenities you need, hairdryer etc. kitchennette had coffee/tea/sugar/creamer ready to go making for a pleasant surprise. Decent sized fridge too which helped out. My only disappointment was that the restaurant wasn’t open on Saturday/Sunday evenings and there was nothing around within walking distance. Good job the gas station next door sold baguettes! The taxi service was right on time for our departure and it was only ten minutes or so from the airport. Overall a comfortable stay, would like to come back after May when the pool is back up and running again. It was also ‘just’ outside the no fly zone for the airport for my drone. Managed to capture a few pictures.
