8.0.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Customer service was great from front desk to swimming area. Waterfront is gorgeous and the array of water activities is great. Especially the snorkel area that is netted off from the lagoon and shallow - for kids or scardy cats like me! Infinity pool also wonderful. Hotel itself is out of date and fraying at the edges. For the price, I expected more. We were there for dinner one night which was BBQ so as a vegetarian, I had a choice of 6 red meats, one fish that was not available or cesar salad. More choices would be appreciated. American breakfast had scrambled eggs in huge grey chunks turned out of a timbale mold - not appealing. Hash browns were frozen patties of grated potato. Sausage was low quality. Pancakes and bacon good, but would have like real maple syrup. Room service doesn't start until 6pm. Hotel store has almost no sundries such as aspirin an closes at 11 am. Super lovely and accommodating staff except at breakfast where we had to get up and ask for menus and service several times

    Terrible Service

    The hotel has very nice views of Papeete and the pool is really nice however the service of the hotel is terrible. The breakfast is overpriced and you have to carry your own luggage to your room even if you are staying at the 4th floor. They do not even provide you a cart. This is acceptable at a basic hotel not a so called 4-star hotel.

    Convenient for a couple of nights

    Room was comfortable- we had the one bedroom suite and the layout was good. Kitchenette was great to have. Bed was comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Furniture in the living room was very worn and dated. Exterior hallways were very dirty and covered in pigeon droppings that obviously hadn’t been cleaned in quite some time. Only two towels included with the room which was strange. Pool towels are only available from 10am to 6pm, so if you arrive early from your flight and want to hang by the pool until your room is ready keep that in mind. Didn’t eat at the restaurant, so can’t comment on the food. The pool bar is very popular, so expect a bit of a party scene down there.

    The property was absolutely beautiful, especially the view. What an immaculate vision. The staff were extraordinarily helpful, in terms of translation, accomodation, and courteousness. Agathe and Romona were great benefits to our stay, as they made Americans traveling with injury very easy.

    The resort had a wonderful view of the ocean and reef. In addition, the infinity pool was spactacular and blended into the ocean colours. We enjoyed our stay. Food on the resort was a little on the expensive side but tasty.

    Séjour de rêve

    Alors nous, on a aaaaadoré. L'emplacement de l'hôtel, juste en face de Moorea, et du coucher de soleil, c'est un régal pour les yeux. Le studio était d'une propreté impeccable et on s'y sent bien. Une vue dégagée, aérée, le calme et des couleurs plus belles les unes que les autres, qui font du bien, surtout après une année si particulière. Et cette piscine à débordement, son bar, ses happy hourssss, il ne faut surtout pas passer à côté. Un personnel, à notre écoute et très discret. Un séjour tellement fort et agréable, qu'on a juste envie que le temps s'arrête pour ne plus quitter ce petit paradis...

    Stay some place else!!! They advertise free cancellation and then changed it when your flight was cancelled, refusing to give your money despite their agreement with the tourist board to be flexible because of COVID. Take pictures of the advertisement before you book it!
