Room was very outdated and had a very musty/moldy smell. TV only in French. Bed was lumpy. Air conditioner couldn't be set below 18 c. Ceiling fan only went on 1 speed- very slow! Buffet breakfast : premade omelets, lousy fruit selection, cold cereal, and a platter of small breakfast pastries. Once the food was gone it was not replenished.

Manava, as it’s known locally, is a quiet, French-style resort with the requisite sunning beach (artificial but perfect) and large infinity pool butted up to the actual seashore. The hotel and rooms are well designed in European style and come with effective air-conditioning, a nifty little kitchen (at least, ours did) and a very cheerful and effective cleaning staff. This...

Any hotel as out of the way as this one needs to have some very special ‘je ne sais quoi’. Trouble is that this one does not! The management here is seriously lacking and our introduction to this place required a huge shift in our paradigms. Checking-in to an acceptable room was a fiasco. We were offered three rooms in...

Recently my family & I spent just one afternoon & night here before a very early-morning flight. The best thing about the resort was the pool area, which was very nice - large attractive pool, swim-up bar, deck chairs on sand looking out to a pleasant view. Our room didn't impress me. I found the tiny toilet room claustrophobic. The...

Nice rooms, full kitchen suites, the pool is really nice, view to Moorea. We had breakfast in the room, very good but pricey ( as everything else in French Polinesia). Rooms are big and nicely appointed

Had a night either end of a week in Moorea, nice venue, quiet, lovely pool. Service was pretty good, but did get busy with check in and out as every one was going at the same time. Bus to airport etc quick and efficient. Rooms clean and comfy and good space with kitchenette. Would make a good base as part...

On our way to Moorea, we had a one night stay in Tahiti. I wish we had a longer stay as the resort was beautiful. They didn't have a natural beach but a man-made one which connected to an infiniti pool; one of the largest in French Polynesia, and then there was the ocean. The room we were in had...

We stayed 2 nights one arriving in Thaiti before heading on to Bora Bora and the 2nd night before flying home. Staff were very friendly.The room was clean and comfortable, was a fantastic first impression waking up to the view on our first morning in Thaiti.

My wife and I stayed here one night and later in our trip stayed one night at the Intercontinental in Tahiti. Manava was far nicer and less expensive than the Intercontinental. Taxi ride from airport is a bit farther, but well worth it especially if you are going to stay in Tahiti for more than one night.
