This is a wonderful spot. I only stayed one night but it was enough for me to fall in love with it. It's pretty standard fare in terms of 5 star hotels - there's nothing particularly original or dramatic about it. It's just that it is a very good hotel in Tahiti and the setting is beyond description. The food is lovely, the rooms are super comfortable, and the pool is terrific. There's a lot on offer - snorkelling, jet skiing, diving etc. And buses laid on to take you into Papeete. The lagoonarium is particularly charming - a seawater pool created in the grounds of the hotel, with coral and brightly coloured fish.

But actually, all you want to do is sit and gaze in wonder at the beauty of it.

We stayed here either side of a cruise and, despite this being a large hotel, the layout of separate units made it seem more intimate. The rooms we had both had lovely views of the pool and ocean. The first was on the ground floor so you could walk out through the French windows and the second on the top floor with more panoramic views. It is very humid in Tahiti so the first thing to do is to make sure the room air-con is working properly. The rooms were big enough and beds comfy; housekeeping was very efficient and friendly. There is a laundry room in each block and you will need to use it because of the humidity; pack some washing powder in your bag.
All the front of house staff were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was a buffet and, although expensive, it set you up well for the day. See separate reports about the evening meals in both restaurants. Would stay here again and, having heard what others on the cruise said about their hotels I am confident we made the right choice.

Room Tip: Always ask for a sea view.

We spent two nights, one on each end of a trip to other islands of French Polynesia.
The high point, for us, was the saltwater lagoon. We sat on a bench in the shade, near where the ocean water is pumped in, and watched a large assortment of mostly brightly colored, small to large tropical fish jockey for position in the incoming water. They were probably just looking for food but some of them appeared to be playing in the incoming jets of water. They would swim up into the jet, get blown back, and repeat over and over again.
The place is beautiful but the shower in the bathroom had a problem. It look as if the shower head was meant to be detachable but it had been screwed to the wall and its holder was loose so it pointed not out at you but at the wall. I had to get out find something to use as a screwdriver and tighten the screw on the holder so it would point out and not at the wall. People had tried to tighten it so many times the screw head was stripped so you could not get it very tight. They need to replace it.

Had a nice pleasant time here. Love the pool/waterfall area. Loved the cute little lagoonarium that we snorkeled at. There are some gorgeous parrot fish there. I liked walking the resort and checking out all the little areas. They even have a turtle area. Cool place. They even had a very nice Polynesian dance show. One of the better ones we'd seen.

When I booked this had a balance of 5 stars and some 4 stars - but I think that is overstating it

Positives:
Good internet (seriously)
Best hotel in Tahiti (clue is probably to go to Moorea - but we wanted to stay in one place
Great lagoon areas and views

The food was 'fine' - but honestly 60'000 XPF for Brunch - was more expensive than Geneva, Zürich and the other world's capitals of expensiveness. Plus - the orange juice was from concentrate (yes, I know this is picky but this is a $400 a night hotel, at least we shall you have had Tropicana - and the Cafe Latte came from a Nespresso dried milk machine
Sent the Pizza back three times for being luke warm - in the end gave up and had some fries ... But a restaurant without a pizza oven should not serve pizza.

Happy holiday - but could have been so much better

Stayed: June 2017
