Thank you for a truly friendly welcome, we arrived late in the evening, we were dealt with extremely quickly due to the late hour, but never harried or rushed. We were allowed to just relax and that's what we needed, next morning, lovely breakfast, and then out to the bar, and beach to rest and relax. Stunning, we only had the over night and next day there before being collected to continue on our French Polynesia holiday, but we have already decided we'll be back. Unfortunately our view of Moorea was clouded over, but who cares, we were going there next anyway. Hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: As I said we only overnighted but we had a suite, and it was everything and more than we expected

We spend 3 nights here and were pleasantly surprised. The accommodation was pleasant, the pool lovely, however the standout was the food. It was amazing and the convenience of not having to book and dine anytime until midnight is something we didn't find at any other point in our trip.

The staff were lovely and always helpful. This place is underrated!

This resort has great amenities and is a great option to stay at in Papeete before heading off to one of the other islands if this is the plan. Great pool and views out to Moorea and wifi connection excellent. I was travelling with my 8mth old daughter and she was catered for excellently

We arrived (Sunday 7th) about 5pm and headed to the pool and bar for a drink and relax after our flight. There was a group of young people being loud and playing loud music at the swim up bar. It completely spoilt the atmosphere. Hardly the "superior level of luxury" as advertised.
I had to wonder what is the point of having "the largest infinity pool on the island" and then allowing a few drunken and selfish guests to spoil it for others.
Turned me right off the hotel for permitting this to happen.
We went back to our room and when we realised some of these people were in the room next door we went and asked to change rooms and explained why. We had to pay about 5000 francs for the "up sell".... But at least we had a quiet room.
The duck and ravioli meal at the restaurant was great; the fish platter very average.
Thankfully we only had one night here on route to Moorea. We definitely won't stay here again

As a first time visitor to Tahiti I wasn't sure what to expect, as I bought a packaged deal thru Pleasant Holidays. I was however pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The suite was very comfortable, a living area, kitchen, bedroom , bathroom and separate toilet and was very large and updated. The view is amazing, you can see Moorea and a beautiful sunset at night. The infinity pool is beautiful and looks out on the ocean. The only downside was not enough lounge chairs by the pool. The street outside is very busy ,however the rooms are very quiet. I found the hotel staff to be pleasant and accomodating. Wi Fi only in the lobby so be careful with your data use, which can be quite expensive. There is a shuttle that you can take for a fee to downtown Papeete but the return shuttle doesn't run until 4:30 pm so you may want to catch a cab back.
