Our en suite room with balcony was on the first floor, overlooking the sea and the island of Moorea in the distance. The hotel's private beach with bar, deck chairs and umbrellas was right in front of our room. Not far for our daily swim in their pool, using towels provided by the hotel. Bus service not good, so we hitch-hiked into town! People very friendly. "Trucks" are 10 minutes walk away, where one can enjoy a reasonably priced tasty meal from 6pm onwards.

Room Tip: Best views are from bedroom on at least the 1st floor with a balcony facing the sea.

The resort itself is very nice, very welcoming staff and good English. Our garden view room was massive and also had a cheeky view of the ocean, the bed/shower is great quality. Nice clean resort with lots of seating options near the ocean to watch the sunset and enjoy a drink at their poolside bar. Only thing is that the food and drink at the restaurant is quite expensive and while the food is nice, you don't get much of it and wasn't really worth value for money.

We had 3 nights here on the way to our cruise and 1 night on the way home and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was comfortable and spacious, and we had a view over the pool both times. The WiFi was free and fast, the air conditioning good, the beds and sheeting etc very comfortable, towels nice, kitchen facilities adequate, with a door to a balcony. The infinity pool was nice, the aqua aerobics classes were somewhat disrupted the tranquility and I suspect this is an external crowd renting the pool?? the breakfast was included and ample and the staff friendly. A couple of things (reported already in my feedback forms)- the teapots in the restaurant were all chipped, the electric jug in the first room broken and the wood floor of the second stay room was dirty. I cleaned it myself with a hand towel which left the towel black. I did this myself as cannot be bothered with the fuss sometimes but since returning and seeing the prices NZ 500-600 for our room- I should have called housekeeping to do it. The price of these hotels are crazy but they all seem the same- very highly priced. There is the local food trucks you can walk to for better priced food but the quality is not that great. The position of this hotel is handy to the airport, a bank within walking distance and a small supermarket about half hour walk. The shuttle to downtown should be included in the room tariff as this is another expensive add on. Overall the stay was very relaxing and pleasant and I would stay here again if given the choice.

Room Tip: I liked the bottom floor better as no walking up and down stairs and bigger patio.

R.Williams,Brisbane, Australia. We were somewhat disappointed with this hotel.On our way to Moorea we had a garden suite room.Lucky we only stayed one day en route.We got in very late and left very early.Our room had a dark bathroom making it hard to apply makeup. Beds were comfortable. We slept ok but only had afew hours sleep as had to vacate to go to airport. On return from Moorea we had anoisy hotel standard at front of hotel near the busy raod.People were talking and partying till all hours just under our room.A rooster was crowing from 2am.I didn't sleep much at all . There's no proper fridge only a cool safe. I ordered a hamburger from room service and it was raw.It was inedible.Waste of money.Daughter had only a small fruit salad as she was ill from trip on ferry fron Moorea.Pool was too cold to swim.Would only stay there again if we had a beachfront or garden suite with a kitchen and cold fridge.Also smokers spoilt the pool area for me as I have asthma.Smoking fires all over Tahiti and Moorea ruined my holiday.Left bushfires behind in Australia so didn't enjoy seeing fires in Tahiti.Everything is so expensive as they import everything and charge you taxes and fees. Would have bought more souvenirs but no more money.

Ia Orana from Le Manava Suite Resort , thank you for providing us with your review.
It's a shame that you reserved a room that is normaly set for few hours stay....you should reserve an ocean or a garden room, this would have changed your entire stay. Unfortunatelly laws conerning smokers isn't hight as in Australia or US, and I completely agree whit you. Your comment concerning the room service has been transfered to food and beverages department.We are deeply sorry that your stay didn’t meet your expectations and hope rest of your stay in Frecnh Polynesia was good.
Sincerely

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July.

As of writing this, if you need to transport yourself to this hotel from the airport, the cab drivers should charge 1900xpf plus any baggage you may have. When we arrived, we had no transfers from the airport so had to use this method. The driver charged us 3500xpf. I have no idea if it was due to the time and day we arrived as to the high charge but BE WARNED. It is literally 10 minutes of travel time only.

The hotel itself was very nice and comfortable.
The location itself is perched on the shores of Tahiti which overlooks the island of Moorea. They have a pool with its own bar, chairs to sunbath and a small marina where you can venture out to the shore and find a quiet spot away from all the other tourists if you need peace.
Breakfast is fairly comprehensive but be warned, this is the world of French Polynesia and it isn't cheap. We both opted for the buffet breakfast including hot food which costs 3500xpf. The cheaper buffet without hot food is 2500xpf.
If you want an evening meal away from the hotel which I strongly recommend, exit the hotel, turn left and about 200 metres away on the other side of the road is a Thai food place together with another restaurant. It's much better value here and the food is very nice.
The hotel room has a safe and is fairly well equipped. There are a few different grades of room on offer. The rooms located within the main entrance on the first floor appear to be the basic level which suited us fine. These rooms are more than good enough in my opinion. if you want more space, the rooms in the block closer to the sea have balconies.
There is a nice walk from hotel reception to the seafront which takes you through a hallway covered with vegetation. Local Polynesian women sit making their merchandise all day long for tourists to admire or buy.
