8.0.Very good.
  • 6.0.Good

    The pool area is great and really big. Staff are friendly. Not great for international travellers. No USB port in room, no adaptors, so I couldn’t charge my phone. Phone battery died and there was no clock anywhere in the room for me to see what the time was so I had to call reception to ensure I checked out on time. Shower wasn’t working properly.

    Great pool area

    No airport pickups, a little disappointed they dont give flower lay or arrival. After island hoping and staying in cheaper hotels I was expecting Manava fo have all the little Tahitian touches but it didnt. Overall hotel is great location, food was good but pretty expensive compared to other hotels, plenty of restuarants in walking distance. Beautiful pool area and snorkling this area wont disappoint. Rooms advertised with satellite premium TV but nothing in english so perfect if you speak french, wifi was available but slow connection

  • 6.0.Good

    Pros: the pool and swim-up bar is lovely. The room was clean and comfortable. The service from the front desk was exceptional. Cons: I know that typically food at resorts is usually more expensive, but the quality didn't match the price. We ordered room service, which cost us $65AUD and it was cold when it arrived. It was just two pasta dishes. We didn't bother notifying them, we just heated it in our microwave. The biggest con is that they let the public enter in the evening - loud music and overcrowded. On our first night we couldn't even get a seat at one of the two restaurants because it was booked out. Not great when you're paying so much to stay there. My biggest tip is if you're staying in Tahiti, skip the resorts and book a homestay somewhere more secluded.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Excellent, friendly staff on the front desk and tour desk. Their help booking taxis, tours and information about the area was much appreciated. Kitchen has two hot plates and a microwave and was useful for cooking simple meals. We had the family duplex, two storied unit and also found the two toilets an added bonus. Beautiful pool and immaculate grounds. Lighting in the upstairs bedroom is poor and only has two tiny lights above the bed. Beautiful attention to detail in the wooden carving around bathroom mirrors and inlaid shells on the chairs and furnishings. Front desk will book taxis and we found the set price taxi system worked well. It was 1500 CFP each way to Carrefour the supermarket (10 minute drive) and 2300 CFP each way to Papeete centre. (15-20 minute drive). Taxi drivers are amazing. Gave us maps and directions and even found our tour guide before leaving to ensure we were at the right place. Food is expensive as to be expected in resorts, but we stocked up at the supermarket and ate at our unit . If you want to buy vanilla paste or essence, get this from the supermarket as it is much cheaper than the markets in town. Vanilla paste was 750 CFP in the supermarket versus1500 CFP in the markets in town. There is a hotel tax on exit of 1500CFP per night per unit for pool and ammenity use plus an additional tax (environmental?) of 150 CFP per person per night.

    Nice Get-away

    Nice resort and the staff tried very hard. It did look a bit tired but the location and the views, if you get an ocean view suite, were quite nice. The restaurant, when asked for something off the a la carte menu, was excellent. Lovely infinity pool and the lagoon pool, connected to rhe sea, was wonderful.
