Really liked resort
stayed one night, very convenient to airport & ferry terminal, walked the grounds in the morning, very clean & tropical. included breakfast had the freshest food and most variety of choices than the other 4 resorts we stayed on islands, including better than thalasso. Friendly staff, room was better than average. I would defiantly stay again & multiple nights.
Needs an update
The pool areas were lovely. That is the only nice thing I can say. Our stay began with a very bad smelling bag boy bring us to our room in a small prison transport looking vehicle. Our room reminded me of a Days Inn hotel and very outdated, except for the TV. The bathroom was small and we had mold in the shower. The hotel doesn't allow the guest room air conditioners to be set cooler than 73.9 degrees. After being out in the sun all day, that isn't near cold enough. We requested a fan and the fan delivered to our room was dirty and covered with dust. Finding the ice machine was a whole ordeal with two different staff members giving me different instructions on where to find it. Needless to say, we will not be booking another stay at this hotel.
We decided to stay one night at this resort after our cruise but wished we stayed longer. The hotel is close to the airport and port but once you are on the grounds you feel like you are far away from both. The grounds and pools are magnificent and even though we did not have one of the bungalows our room was lovely. The bathroom itself was almost as large as our cruise ship cabin! We had dinner at the casual restaurant (good but nothing special) and enjoyed our drinks at the swim up bar. I will never forget laying on my lounge chair watching the beautiful Tahitian sunset. Very romantic.
Flabbergasted frankly at how worn out this property was. Dated, in dire need of a refresh. Grounds in bad shape, rooms tired, pools in disrepair. The bed was in terrible shape, and the governors on the AC are a real irritant. Service in the Tiki Bar, and the restaurant was marginal, and if the staff would pay attention to guests rather than standing around talking you could avoid this issue. Drinks half full and for $24+ the least you could do is fill the glass. Food was ok but certainly nothing to be proud of. I'd never stay again for the rates they're charging. Really disappointing for a hotel chain that should be IHG's crown jewel.
Best place to stay in Tahiti
The quality of this hotel is unlike any other on the island. It is very clean, with up-to-date amenities. Also the staff is very friendly and helpful. The gentleman who checked us in upgraded our room since I was staying for my birthday. The room he gave us was fabulous! I couldn't be happier for the nice accommodation. After a few days here we decided to check-in to the hotel other hotel we booked - the Manava Suite Resort Tahiti. Upon entering the grounds of this hotel we could immediately tell it was not the same level as the InterContinental. We checked in and went to our room to found out that it was old, dirty, and smelled horrible (don't believe pictures you see online). After spending about 15 minutes in the room we decided to leave and go back to the InterContinental to stay at for the remainder of our time in Tahiti. When the staff saw us they happily welcomed us back. Although, we didn't get the same room as before, the room we did get was equally nice, it just didn't have the ocean view. This is the only place I will stay when I return to Tahiti. The only negative thing about staying here is that it is not very close to any of the main areas and if you want to leave to get food at a restaurant other than the resort be prepared to pay. We paid $50 USD for about a 10-minute ride to eat at restaurant. We refused to pay that on the way back so we walked back to the resort. The walk took about 30 minutes. Good exercise after a nice meal. If you do want to visit the market during the day, the resort offers a shuttle that takes guest for the $8 roundtrip per person. Please take advantage of this since it's the cheaper option to get into main area of the city.
