8/10 Very good

6/10 Good

Property is very clean and all staff excellent. This is a great place but one needs to be aware of what you are and are not getting. Cabin refers to like a boat's cabin, very small with only bed, shelf and TV and small refrigerator. Shared bathroom outside of Cabin which are individual not a group bathroom.

10/10 Exceptional

The cabins are a great idea to ensure a private room without spending too much. Really clean and very comfortable, cool lighting and good wifi. It's like a bunk bed but you only have access to one half of the bed if that makes sense. There is someone above you but they are in a separate room to you. Only thing is that you can sometimes hear them if they're being loud but wasn't a huge problem. Would highly recommend.

2/10 Poor

The room is so small you can't open your luggage or sit on you bed. Community toilets and shower but no towels provided. Room is too small for two people to exist in.

Lost in Translation
Should be labeled Polynesian closet or cabinet. Room has a loft bed up an 8 foot ladder. Entry area is approx. 5 ft x 10 ft. My wife felt claustrophobic once the door is closed. Shared bathrooms are down a hall outside the shared common area. The desk staff was very helpful to arrange another room for an extra $200 but after a long flight we didn't care. At least they had something else. I guess the old saying buyer beware holds true. Hotel is directly across from ferry terminal which would be helpful for many travelers. Did not use their restaurant or bar since we arrived on a Sunday (closed) and Monday 5/1 is a Tahitian holiday (closed). Ferry building blocks most views of the ocean/port. I'm sure we will be able to look back and laugh at this since we did end up with a nice room. Definitely not for those who are afraid of climbing ladders or small spaces. More for the young and agile.

10/10 Exceptional

The "cabins" are small private rooms, basically a bed, desk, mini fridge and 4 walls but most useful has air con to stay cool, bed to rest, wifi, and many charging options. The rest is shared common area with washrooms with showers and an outdoor lounge with a mini kitchen, all shared. If you are mentally prepared for the concept and adjust your expectations it's very good. Great for a short stay or lay over at a reasonable cost. We stayed for 12 hours waiting for a late night flight after checking out of our normal room. The staff were so kind to let us check in early. It's a great spot to rest, stay cool, freshen up, and shower before a long flight home.

Nice stay. Location suggests short overnight stay to continue travels (esp. with the ferry)
