We stayed here for 3 nights in June. The rooms were ok apart from two huge cockroaches visiting us. The hotel is a bit tired and seemed quiet. However the swimming pool seems to be never available for hotel guests as it is used by the locals for birthday parties. The local beach is dirty and awash with juice cartons... More

For the price this hotel is not to par. Very old rooms, bathroom only just clean enough and no real hot water. Sheets had make-up stains. Restaurant very overpriced, especially breakfast. Was brought the wrong order and the waitress tried to get me to just live with it instead of taking it back and getting the right order, was friendly... More

The two words that immediately come to mind when entering the property, sadly, are deferred maintenance. Ants in the room, old and dirty bathroom, cracked and missing flooring. And the "pool" is a relatively unclean swimming hole - a dripping water feature and a nice pebble bottom show what it once was or could be, but otherwise it is not... More

I love the simplicity of this Hotel. I had a nice little kitchenette with the patio opening up to a well manicured grass and garden area. The staff made me feel like family and were very helpful. Food weas expensive but that's the cost everywhere. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. Once a week they have live music with people coming... More

We were "dumped" here by Air New Zealand after 7 hours at the airport, very unfriendly staff on arrival, elderly guests could not get help with luggage, arrived at room! Extremely basic and smelled like mould, do not think the room had been used for years, not even a glass of water to greet us. Broken tiles all over balcony... More

I stayed here recently stayed here and while the staff were lovely and the situation was also great right by the sea the rooms were really rather tired and in urgent need of a revamp. We had the same towels for the 9 days we were there, the beds were shabby and staff kept skimping on the number of cups... More

This hotel is being remodeled as it is a little tired. The staff are lovely and create an atmosphere of warmth and have a genuine interest for all their guests.My room was clean and tidy. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. The TV was modern. The fridge was a very useful asset in the heat. The bathroom... More

Stayed here for six nights in total, though not all consecutive. Rooms are clean and a good size, but a little tired-e.g.bed-head lights did not work and fridge light stayed on because switch broken. Toiletries very limited. That said I was perfectly comfortable and slept well. The grounds are attractive and there is a small swimming pool, (which I did... More

I have been using the Royal Tahitien as a base while travelling through Polynesia. I have had a number of rooms, and they may be a bit dated but they are comfortable and everything works as it should (except that one room had a weak AC unit). I never smelled damp or felt that we had a musty room. The... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. This hotel was appealing to us because of the price, however once checked in, we were very disappointed. Negatives - We were given a room with two single beds and told they would move us to a room with a double bed the next night. In the morning when we enquired about this move... More
