Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Haben es uns die letzten Tage in Las Vegas richtig gut gehen lassen. Nach Tagen im Zelt, haben wir uns fuer ein schickes Hotel entschieden und uns in der Sonne am Pool gebretzelt. Abends ging es dann auf den legendären Strip. Tja, und was soll ich sagen- Las Vegas ist ein reinster Spielplatz für Erwachsene mit viel Potential für Sünden und …
We all got to sleep in a little late this morning, and it was well after 9:00 AM when we finally managed to move around the room. Layla had a rough start to the morning, so she and Heather hung back in the room while Kae and I went out to the swimming pool and the "lazy river" for a dip. It was already very warm, maybe 85 degrees or so, and the …
Today was Heather's and my 7th wedding anniversary, and the 18th anniversary of our first date – we "celebrated" it with anther long day on the road. It was a fun ride though, with a lot of breaks. We got out of the Motel 6 in Holbrook by 9:30 AM after showers and a cereal-in-the-box breakfast. It was better than …

Po źle przespanej nocy, wsiedliśmy w samochód i pojechaliśmy do centrum hndlowego Town's Square z nadzieją na zjedzenie śniadania i dokonanie zakupów (różnego typu). Okazało się, że wszystkie restauracje i bary są jeszcze zamknięte (sklepy także). Otwarty był natomiast supermarket z …

Historical Traveler Reviews Tahiti Village Las Vegas
My husband and I accepted an offer for a free 4-night stay in Las Vegas, in exchange for which we were told that we would have to listen to a 90-minute sales pitch for the Tahiti Village. We paid a deposit, which we were told would be refunded after the tour and, after probably 50 calls from Tahiti Village reps, we eventually settled on a convenient time to take the trip. We were told that we would be staying at the Frontier Hotel which, they claimed, had a nice pool (we asked as the pool is important to us.) When we arrived at the hotel, we had to stand in line for a full hour before we could register, but that wasn't as disappointing as the fact that the "nice" pool was empty and had yellow caution tape all around it. We complained to the Tahiti Village rep at the Frontier, who told us that we would forfeit our deposit plus another $197 if we decided not to stay at the Frontier, so we checked in. We went on the tour the next day, which actually took 3 hours and 37 minutes, including the bus ride to the Tahiti Village, of which approximately 10 minutes were spent in actually showing us the grounds and a typical room. Most of the time we were cooped up in a conference room with hundreds of other couples being chatted up by company representatives in preparation for the final "kill" when they take you to an office and shut you in with a Sopranos-style "manager" who scribbles illegible numbers on sheet after sheet of paper. We said "no," and "no" again, and "no" again, and finally they got the idea. I was insulted that anyone would think that this was a good way to sell time shares. I will run screaming from any property offered by this company.
My husband and I exchanged our timeshare for a week at Tahiti Village and overall we were satisfied with our stay. The property and rooms were immaculate. The location was fantastic, especially for those who enjoy the convenience of being close to the strip, but do not like the noise. It is less than a 5 minute drive to the Mandalay Bay hotel, and the hotel offers a shuttle that runs every 1/2 hour to various casinos on the strip.
we were offered a romantic getaway, 2nd honeymoon, well actually first for my fiance and i. we were give a room at tropicana hotel and nobody from your company was present at check-in. we were charged for the weekend in the hotel and did not get our $100 deposit back. very unprofessional customer relationships. they wouldn't even let us take the tour of the village, and i came looking to buy! the office members at tropican did not let us, take the tour because they said we didnt have a matching adress on our ID's, since we just moved in together.. . we had a business letter with her name and our address on it... and my letter fell out of my suitcase... when i arrived back at home i saw it sitting on my bed... i said that i could have it faxed that evening and they declined our offer to come back another weekend and take the tour. i am very upset with everyone at this company. we would have left the hotel the first day if we would have had someone communicate with us that we would be charged. i had no problem with paying for the night we stayed. but i am not happy with getting charged for the whole weekend and losing our deposit... total loss= $427 (deposit and hotel) + $50 gas from LA = a very unhappy NOT FREE weekend like we were promised. we didn't even receive any of our free show tickets or ANY other gifts that we were promised. Tahiti Village will be getting a letter from my attorney!!!
Quiet and Relaxing
Beautiful facility, however lots of little maintence details need to be done; exhaust fans in both baths did not work, sprinkler head missing in living room, no fire hose in hallway and no ice machine on the floor. Considering this is a new facility, the rooms are already starting to look a bit shabby.
The resort is quiet and relaxing even though it is just south of the airport and there is ongoing construction. A rental car is a must.
Although it was very cold, we did walk through the pool area. It is beautiful.
There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. The beds, including the sofa beds were very comfortable.
A nice place to stay.
This place is truly a work of art. Beautiful landscape, grounds and rooms. However, I came to Vegas with the promise of a 2nd honeymoon and a romantic getaway. We were only able to set foot on the Tahiti Village property for 45mins while getting a sales pitch. We were thrown in the Frontier hotel which is probably one of the worse of its age. Romance?? We were afraid to take showers in the place! By the time we got to the timeshare presentation we were all so upset about the living arrangements we didnt have an open mind about Tahiti Village at all! Word to the wise.......allow your potential "owners" to stay on the wonderful property and soak up a few amenities, after being given the royal treatment the whole "Tahiti Village" salespitch might sound a little sweeter........WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED TO ME!!!!!!
We stayed here mid January and I mostly have great things to say about it. We rented it for a week at a very reasonable rate and found it to be quiet and mostly smoke free. It was clean and had all the luxaries of home, dishwasher, w/d, iron, blowdryer, huge balcony looking over large beautiful pool, soaker tub. We also choose to stay at the Bellagio and I did find that compared to that the Tahiti village was much lower key and relaxed. We liked that one did not have to trapse thru a smokey, loud casino to get to one's room. On the other hand the Tahiti village is not truly on the strip even if the address technically is. You will have to take a shuttle in and will have a choice of 3 locations to disembark at. It made for a lot of walking but then again if you don't like walking perhaps Vegas isn't a good choice. Also, Tahiti village offers complimentary "breakfast". Really it was a bit of a joke. The day we went they only had little cans of juice and toasted frozen waffles. They had butter you could squeeze out of a tube and no syrup. We left and did not bother going back for breakfast there again. We just kept cereal and milk in the kitchen and presto... breakfast was prepared. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.
The Tahiti Village is very nice, gorgeous condo, very spacious and luxurious. The pool is great, it will be beautiful once the lazy river is done. The main downside was that the timeshares are still being sold and the northernmost building has a BUNCH of timeshare salespeople hanging around the entrance all day long, smoking, and basically being obnoxious. They don't even move aside when you;re coming in with luggage!! Amazing that they are selling these condos yet look down their noses at people who walk by, and we are owners!! Hold your breath when you walk through their smoke cloud! Once the timeshares are all sold, it will be a great place to stay!!
Myself and my husband stayed here in December 2006 for 13 days (a long time I know, but we love Las Vegas and it's a long flight from England!!)
Hated the Tahiti Village
The hotel accomodations were nice, however, our toliet, dishwasher and washer/dryer all needed repair within the first few days.
The customer service was mediocre; the so-called "continential breakfast" was a joke; the shuttle service was not conistent and the on-site ammenities closed by 10 pm. My mom needed special accomodations and we were shocked to hear that the hotel was not ADA compliant for people with hearing and phyical disabilities.
I would NOT stay at this hotel again.
My wife and I stayed at the new Tahiti Village Timeshare resort from September 29-October 6. We arrived at about 10:30 p.m. Friday night and were quickly accomodated by the registration staff. After only about 5 minutes we were at our room and unpacking in our 1 Bedroom Suite(Bora Bora). We acquired our timeshare from a private party and are very pleasantly surprised by the top quality of this unit and facility . It is located exactly 3.6 miles south of the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino directly on Las Vegas Blvd(the Strip). I would recommend a car if you want to stay at this resort as no casinos are within easy walking distance. Those who do not have cars can use the "every half hour" shuttle bus service that stops at the Tropicana, Mirage and Riveria. The shuttles run from 10 a.m till 11 pm weekdays and 1 am on weekends. The shuttle also does a Grocery Store run on Mondays for people staying at Tahiti Village.
