Gorgeous location. Hotel Staff super friendly, helpful and nice. Morning buffet was wonderful, especially Sunday which featured local dishes. Great snorkeling right off the beach. We usually avoid hotel pools, but this was one of nicest hotel pools I've been at. Room comfortable clean and comfy bed with a nice porch to watch sunset. Loved all of it.

What a beautiful resort. Staff very friendly and helpful. Views magnificent. Pool wonderful as well as food and service. I loved my room but I do think something could be done to make that roof top more decorative such as turf grass with tropical plants rather than black tar paper. The restaurants were wonderful and I really enjoyed the soft lighting at night. The polynesian dancers were excellent. The best I have ever seen. What a wonderful resort and I enjoyed looking at the over the water cottages. Sandy S. I was with a Road Scholar group headed by Dorothy; Mamado

Peter Friends - 22/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed all the facilities of the hotel, especially the beach and sand bottomed pool. The staff were courteous and attentive to our needs. The bistro/bar was our choice of place to eat, however we did try the seafood buffet and floor show at the Plantation Restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed. More information on the caring for the reef program would have been appreciated as well as an explanation of the area under the Bungalows over the water, which I think is a coral nursery. Also information on the sea life and animal life in and around the hotel would be great.

We had concerns about a new management style, but found the staff and management even more accommodating and hospitable than previous visits. Small gestures-poolside nibbles, fruit juice on arrival and fruit bowl in the room was appreciated.

Diane N. Couples - 05/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were greeted by a very friendly staff and assigned our room. When we arrived at our room, it wasn't quite what we were expecting. My husband was able to change our room to a room with a much better location. The resort is nice but needs to be updated. Decor is dated, color schemes, etc. Bathroom was ok, shower was fantastic! The breakfast buffet was very good. No complaints and the view of the lily pond was very pleasant. The beach restaurant was also very good. A bit expensive for a beach bar, but we are on Tahiti! Wait staff was wonderful. I was very disappointed to learn there was no fitness center. I ran the first day I was there, but I noticed there were quite a few stray dogs hanging around. I was afraid of getting bitten and elected not to run the rest of my days at the resort.

It is a beautiful place and everyone was so very nice to us. One of the HIGH points of our time was the car service that we did with Phillip. He was wonderful and we were glad to hire him for a tour of the island. We had a fabulous time with him and I am so glad that he was there when we needed something to do? That made our trip and stay there perfect. I work for United Airlines and will diffidently recommend your hotel and Phillips car service. I did have a question though? I couldn't get a straight answer if this was our crew hotel or not because I noticed that my flight crew stayed there with us? Is there an airline employee discount for us? But anyway we had a fabulous time while there.

TheExpatO Couples - 24/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

We had a lovely time in (what I assume is) a large renovated room on the 5th floor. Sunset was lovely. Dinner at the Carré restaurant was great and the management was full of attention. Yes, breakfast and some services are expensive but matches the rest of Polynesian luxury resorts. Glad I didn't paid too much attention on the older negative reviews. I would recommend this place to friends Some suggestions: -keep the efforts and work on the sustainability initiatives -add little info signs for the trees and other plants in the park -build a central ramp to bring luggage in the lobby -offer early/late check out to Accor status holder -suggest/build paths to avoid the construction area in the street leading to the hotel

What a wonderful sharing of experience! We are delighted to have welcomed you to our corner of paradise! We do our best to make you live a real Polynesian experience. A unique experience. The teams are very touched by your comment and thank you very much. Mauruuru and we hope to see you soon

alansimonic Couples - 19/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Nice location and hotel - comfortable rooms. Swimming pool showing signs of aging, snorkelling off the beach was nice. Dined at all three restaurants and food was excellent. Was disappointed on that as we had used our free night vouchers - both my wife and I have cards - we had to check back in after the first night as they could not do it as one booking - were able to keep[ the same room which was nice.

Ia Ora Na, Thank you for the great review of our hotel ! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon.

My recent stay was excellent in all aspects with particular thanks to the Housekeeping and Food and Beverage Team. They always went above and beyond and were kind and courteous. The evening show on Friday was excellent. Special recognition to Liliana and Katy in Food and Beverage and also to Steve at the Bar. Teva the manager - excellent. Reception team and Housekeeping always warm and welcoming. My only issue would be as an English speaker, please ensure that at least one TV channel is in English. The only one available was CNN which worked abou 50% of the time. I am a luxury T. Agent - (AVA Wine Adventures - Virtuoso) so would like to see this for my guests when I book this Hotel but have no problem to recommend this property. Superb!
