This is a comfortable hotel. Our double room has a balcony overlooking the street and the furniture and bed are very comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and well appointed. It is also situated with short walking distance of the waterfront and the ferry to Moorea albeit on a very noisy main street.
However, there are a few things which detract from its appeal. At night the corridors are very dark with minimal lighting making it dangerous as there are raised walkways. The lift is also lethal. On the first night we arrived, one of the lifts was out of order and though it was supposedly fixed the next day a goup of our friends were in the lift when it fell 2 floors from Reception to the car park beneath. They said the emergency communication wasn't working and they were lucky someone came along quickly to discover them. The other lift's door closes so quickly I have been caught several times and it hurts. It is a wonder noone has been injured by it.
From others comments the main restaurant has good food but it is very expensive and has very small portions. We tried the buffet breakfast the first day and it was awful. Stale cornflakes, some patisseries and cold coffee. We did not return

... the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti was in its early stages. While we weren’t able to see anything, it was a little bit exciting to know the competition was on only a couple of miles away, just around a headland or two Located on the South West Coast of Tahiti Iti, this site is known for it’s excellent waves (often reaching 2m to 3m, and sometimes up to 7m). Due to the shape of the reef, the wave technically breaks below sea level. This means that the wave produced, ...
... had set up dinner as a buffet instead of letting people choose from the menu. The buffet gave us an immense choice. To start with there were salads of very description and even oysters. Unlike in New Zealand these were not battered and deep fried. For the main course you could choose freshly carved roast beef and/ or sliced chicken, noodles with chicken, rice, roast potatoes, roast sweet potatoes and ...
... s because it is Happy Hour. Well, who can resist a half price cocktail.
Later we have dinner at the resort. As we are leaving the restaurant a beautiful white cat makes a grand entrance down the staircase leading to reception. It glides elegantly down like a supermodel. No wonder it is called a catwalk. It is very friendly and starts to follow us to our room but then it wanders off on its own graceful way. Pity as we could have done with some feline ...
... not book any tour, and I just want to
look around, and perhaps rent a bike in order to get around. I read
somewhere that you can circle the island in just three hours. I also
want to check the black pearls that are synonymous with Tahiti. My
mind wandered about various images of the perfect string of pearls.
They come in assorted shades, and I've heard that they are everywhere
in this island.
At the dock, we were greeted ...
... which tells you just how bad the coffee was. After checking out, we were taken to the ferry for our 30 minute ride to Moorea. We had booked a 3 night pre-cruise package through the cruise line. There are different ferries that run between the islands. Moorea, at 12 miles away, is the sister island to Tahiti. The ride was smooth and we enjoyed a café au lait while we were on board. Moorea is breathtaking; there is simply ...
