Rangiroa was one of the four islands my wife and I visited during our honeymoon. Maitai was the only 3-star hotel of our trip. Although considered to be a simple hotel, its bungalows were built and decorated with great taste and good room space. All of them are close to the ocean. We were lucky ours had an ocean view....

I stayed here for 9 nights. Most of the staff is very friendly and the setting is wonderful but the food is terrible. I had the worst meal of my life and its the only time I have ever sent a meal back. The waitress smelled the meal and almost gagged. Nice place to stay but find other places to... More

I recently spent 4 nights at the Hotel MaiTai in Rangiroa. It has been described as one of the best 3 star hotels in French Polynesia, and I would agree. Individual bungalows are well set out, and tastefully simple. The hotel restaurant provides an extensive menu and the creme brulee was very good. The staff were helpful and friendly. I... More

I stayed at the Intercontinental on Moorea and Le Meridien Bora Bora prior to Maitai Rangiroa. The food at the Le Meridien was extremely disappointing for a 5 star Hotel. We even made a complaint to the F&B manager but it did not improve. When we arrived on Rangiroa, we were a bit concerned of what type of food we... More

I had one of the upgraded garden bungalows which gave me a direct view of the ocean, so it was a fine choice for me. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were all very nice. My French is pretty weak, but most of the employees spoke English so I got along just fine with Frangish and English.... More

We had a water front bungalow that had 3 beds… two pushed together and made up as a king and the other held our luggage. The bungalow was clean and stayed at a nice temperature. The only draw back was the room refrigerator was only a cooler… not cold enough to really chill anything. Morning sleep was limited due to... More

On the day of our noon arrival, the lagoon was as beautiful and calm as we had ever seen. We snorkeled, seeing all kinds of colorful tropical fish and a black-tip shark. Exhausted from snorkeling and suffering from jet lag, we fell asleep about 5:30pm. Knowing that we were new arrivals, management was kind enough to call our room to... More

We had a water-front bungalow. It was quite spacious, with 3 single beds (pushed together to make a double) and door separating bathroom area. Food was ok (we had breakfast and dinner included) eggs for breakfast, bread, fruit, coffee, juice, pastries, granola, cereal, coffee and tea. Dinner was also good! The floor of our bungalow was very squeaky, (bungalow #2)... More
