Paradise 4 $$$
Very nice hotel but they need fans in the lobby in the bar area and restaurant Don't buy the food package venture out ask the concierge the restaurants have free pick up the hotel won't tell you about they serve the same food breakfast lunch and dinner powdered eggs Cheaper dinning in town and across the street
Don't stay here!!!
In my opinion, the Manava has only updated the lobby, the restaurants, the pool area and bedrooms (not the entire room) of this hotel in Tahiti. I say Tahiti because there is a Manava in Mo'orea, don't confuse them. This one in Tahiti is run down and needs updating. Don't be fooled by pictures of the lobby. One of the first things I noticed was this ugly prison looking chain link fence someone actually picked out as nice. I would like to know whose idea that was. Bad interior choice. As soon as I opened the door to our room I could tell the walls were all banged up and dirty. Then I noticed was like that on purpose. Some ugly red texture finish to hide it. Then I noticed how the laminate floor was coming apart and warped like it had been wet. The room is on the 4th floor so it probably wasn't flooded. We are in the tropics so they should have used something more durable. They do give you a bottle of water on a daily basis and macaroons which were really good but I would not stay here again just for that. It was pretty expensive for such a poor experience. Even if it were for one night to catch a flight the next morning, I would find a place closer to the airport to save money on the taxi ride. Don't stay here. It's not worth it. I would have stayed in Bora Bora or Mo'orea an extra night for the price of two nights here. Bummer.
Coronavirus - That just your bad luck - no refund even though we couldn't even enter the country
Uncaring, greedy management. We booked our two night hotel stay through booking.com However, our ship was refused entry to Papeete (as they shut the borders), and we were forced to disembark in Rarotonga instead. This threw all our plans into disarray. We contacted them via email as soon as we knew, asking for a refund. It took several emails to them (before and after we left the ship), before they replied days later, to say 'no refund'. In comparison, our hire car company in Papeete, our Auckland hotel, Skycity (non-refundable booking) and our organised transfers were all refunded on compassionate grounds. Also, we have heard that hotel.com and Agoda all organised immediate refunds for fellow travellers. However, booking.com were just useless. We had to find additional funds quickly so that we could fly home on one of the last flights out of Rarotonga. Some compassion please. Please think twice about dealing with these people.
Staff, pool & lagoon are AMAZING! Rooms need updating.
The staff at his property is truly fantastic. Everyone from the front desk, to the bar & restaurants were phenomenal. Special shout out to Aurore & Rutger at the front desk. The pool & lagoon area is really unique. You can snorkel right in the lagoon and see some beautiful fish. The pool & lagoon are meticulously maintained as well. We saw works regularly cleaning the lagoon, loungers, etc. the hotel really takes pride in keeping the pool & lagoon area pristine. The rooms are fine. We didn't spend much time in the room but it's quite clean. I would say the rooms could use a little face lift. They aren't terrible, but they are slightly outdated. We spent 2 nights in a standard room, then extended our stay for a 3rd night and were moved to a 1 bedroom duplex. After spending a few days in Mo'orea, we decided to extend our trip and spent an additional 2 days in Tahiti at Manava in a 2 bedroom duplex. It was just my friend and I, but I would highly recommend the duplexes for families. They have a kitchen (no stove, but everything else) and a half bathroom on the main floor off the living room. HUGE balconies as well!
I've stayed in hundreds of hotel beds, but this was the hardest bed I've ever slept in. The room was nice, so unsure why the bed was so substandard. Spent a sleepless night, and my back was still hurting three days later.
