Reviewed 15 November 2017

We booked this place through RCI. We were allocated a “standard” room. The only way we could upgrade to a bungalow or an over water chalet was to fork out large amounts of money. We could not use our points. The property was built in the 1960s and does not look like it has had any renovations since then. It looks and feels tired and old. Our kitchenette was swarming with ants which got into our food. One positive about the room: the A/C was quiet and efficient.
The area around the small pool had no umbrellas or anything else for shade. The plastic loungers had no cushioning so were extremely uncomfortable. There are roosters which crow most of the night.
I heard from one of the local guides that the place likely will close in the next year or so as the owners have no money for upgrades and the lease will expire.
The view from our deck was great. There could be a really classy joint on this site. Club Bali Hai, I believe, is on its last legs.

Room Tip: You pay a lot for an over water bungalow but they are not upgraded any more than the motel type room...

Our stay at CBH on Sept. 15 was our fourth time there. The setting alone is worth staying for, but it's also because of the low key un-resortlike and peaceful atmosphere. We talked to people staying at the more upscale resorts and they complained that they were way too crowded and hectic.

Bianca and all the other staff members speak excellent English and are very helpful and accommodating, whether it's making restaurant arrangements or just answering questions about local stores, etc.

The one thing we would advise is to email CBH before arriving and confirm your reservation, especially the TYPE of unit you've asked for. Then bring a printed copy with you. We had reserved a 1 bedroom family overwater bungalow and when we got there both of them were occupied. They were going to give us one of the regular bungalows, but we had the confirmation and said we'd paid for the better ones. They graciously gave us the 2 bedroom bungalow (#34) which was the best unit on the property. It had a complete kitchen, huge bathroom with a garden in it, and everything we could want plus an incredible view. The only drawback was boats coming in early in the morning, but they weren’t noisy enough to wake us. We'd definitely recommend putting out the extra money for this unit, plus you'll be sure to not be sharing a wall with someone like you would in the 1 bedroom family units. The regular over water bungalows are nice, but described as 'rustic' by a few people who were in them. I wouldn't recommended the 'garden' rooms.

Do avoid being put in the units numbered less than #34. They're near the road and they're views aren't as good as all the others. If you can, get #40. It's a single bungalow with a king size bed and is the one usually given to honeymooners. It has a great location too.

Breakfast was included and was very good. We had omelets and a nice array of fresh tropical fruit every day and the setting couldn't be better.

We highly recommend CBH, but if you want spas, and a restaurant, and entertainment, this isn't the place for you.

For restaurants, we recommend Hotel Kaveka. It's a beautiful setting, reasonably priced, and the food was decent. Moorea Beach Cafe was expensive and a bit 'stuffy' for our tastes. They both give rides to and from CBH.

We read the mixed reviews before we arrived but wow, did this place exceed our expectations!!!! When we arrived, we are blown away by the stunning backdrop. My 10-yr old son said "this place is crazy stunning!". We had booked a garden bungalow but were somehow given a bungalow that was right on the water with a deck over the water. Kids had heaps of fun in the pool everyday and the views from the grounds are quite unbeatably. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated because it is old but we didnt mind it as it was really clean and comfortable. The curtain and furniture were what made it look "dated" but if you're fixated on modern interior design, perhaps NYC is your holiday destination of choice. We fished off the deck of our bungalow every evening, took heaps of photos of sunsets, kayaked, snorkelled, etc. The on site restuarant isn't opened for dinner but we wanted to cook dinner and enjoy music and dinner on our deck anyway given the crazy restaurant prices in Tahiti. We did go to the Hilton for dinner one night and order pizza from Allo Pizza another night and that was perfect for our 5 nights there. I'd definitely go back again. The ladies at reception, Olga and Bianca and the staff at the restaurant were extremely helpful and accomodating. Because my husband and I wanted to go diving, we asked them to help us organize a babysitter and Heiata was a dream! Kids love her so much we offered her to come stay with us if she is ever in NZ. The grocery shops are a short walk away, one less than 2 min away on the left and another bigger one on right about 10-15 min walk away. The walk to shops itself is beautiful with the mountain backdrop. Overall, we still can't believe how good a value this place is and is proof that travelling in Tahiti doesn't always have to be opulent and expensive because the islands itself are so stunning you don't need to stay somewhere flash to have a really great time.

Room Tip: All the rooms and bungalow are so close to the beach if not right on the water you can't go wron...

I knew when we checked in not to expect the internet or a TV but the lack of hot water and water pressure in the shower was a shock. The room was dated but clean. As anywhere in a tropical island there are bugs so insect repellent is a must.
