Customer Ratings & Reviews
TripAdvisor Traveler RatingBased on 3833 reviews
We stayed here because it was close to the airport but not so close you feel like a plane is landing on you. We used Jackie at Venture Tahiti travel agency for our multi island trip and she was excellent ! The hotel was beautiful and the grounds were amazing. Multiple pools and a snorkeling pool with fish. Great views, very peaceful , friendly staff and the room was great! If you’re planning a trip to Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora look into Venture Tahiti, they not only saved us money but made our trip seem less and easy the entire way . All we had to do was enjoy! Even if you are only spending a day in Tahiti I recommend this hotel it was great !
Good starting point
We booked a visit to French Polynesia through an agent in the UK and the basically sorted all our travel and hotels out for us. Our first stop was Tahiti. We got to the hotel at around 6am having travelled for pretty much 24 hours to get there. The staff were very welcoming and our room was ready to go. Check in was easy and we was driven with our luggage to our room. All very easy. The room itself was great. Plenty big enough for the 3 of us (My wife, me and our 13 year old son). The view of the ocean was lovely and although the room was dated it was perfectly functional and suitable. There is no beach at the hotel but there are 2 good size pools that didn’t ever get crowded. There is also a Lagoonarium. This was brilliant as you can snorkel around and see all the fish in a good sized lagoon that is shallow enough in some places to stand up in. There was 2 restaurants both with limited menus and as all places in FP very expensive. This is not the hotel but the region. There is a couple of supermarkets not too far away (15 min walk) that you can go to to stock up on drink should you wish. Overall a good hotel and well located for a quick stop on your way to see other islands.
It’s posh spice
If you have to stay in Tahiti this place is pretty nice. Not easy on your wallet but it’s pretty nice. As with all resorts you don’t have to go anywhere else. They do have a shuttle to the city 1000 pp. and the hotels close to the airport. They mainly cater to groups so the Waite staff really were not that nice to alacarte people. I used the very helpful concierge to book the forward part of my trip so it worked out well. Why not treat yourself on a holiday!
Stay at hotel
The room was nice. The walk to it was excessive. The food was mediocre and very expensive. The lack of shuttle service from and to the airport makes this a second class hotel to me. When we came back after our cruise we got a day room. This consisted of towels and use of the facilities. NO ROOM. Cost $85 per person!
Average in a place that shouldn't be
I stayed here a few weeks ago and found it to be...average. The food was good, the grounds were well-kept, there was a cool inner-pond with colorful fish, and the staff was nice. However, the hotel felt old, my room smelled musty (even after I complained and they came by to spray something into the A/C vent, and the elevator was unreliable. If you do stay here, get the over-water bungalow and avoid the garden-view suites--they are not worth it. Many people traveling on the United flight out of SFO who are actually just trying to get to another island (e.g., Bora Bora) and flight crews use this hotel as a layover stop due to the time of day the United flight lands in Tahiti and this hotels proximity to the airport. Be prepared for a long check-in line those nights.
