Hotel accomadation was just average,rather expensive for what it is. Hotel was dark. We couldn't figure out the lights in bathroom (possibly burned out) but after a long day of travel we were ready for bed. The staff did their job but were not very friendly. We asked them to change a large Tahitian bill so we could buy things... More

Easy walk from the wharf after our cruise. The hotel is dark, needs maintenance and disappointing for the price paid, but that is Tahiti, overpriced and under friendly. You have to expect this with Papeete in particular. The hotel staff do their job, and that's all, not very friendly and not really rude.The only way to afford a trip to... More

Stayed 2 nights at the end of a cruise, then paid 1/2 regular room rate for a 6.00pm checkout our last day as our flight didn't leave until 10.00pm. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Odd bathroom design where water from shower gets all over the floor. Kitchenette was not really equipped, not even paper towels to wipe of counter... More

Clean,efficient,helpful hotel staff. Pleasant roof top hotel for swimming. Central to shops restaurants etc. easy ride to airport for early flight. Generous space, towels drinks- everything you need for overnight stay. We had requested an afternoon tour of the island which had been efficiently arranged for us.

Loved this hotel. stayed there twice - before and after a cruise. It's located withing walking distance of the port, the local market. Competent staff, nice rooms, great location. As in most places in Tahiti: the internet service sucks.

We recently spent a night at the Hotel Tahiti Nui. We did arrive very late at night (an unplanned visit to town) so didn't get to spend a lot of time there. We were a walk in booking and the price was very reasonable being that it was in Papeete. Wifi was only available in the foyer but was fast... More

All international departures are mostly late at night. The international departure area at the airport only opens three hours before flight. We arrived in the morning from Bora, and wanted a place to rest and shower, have a nice dinner and head out to the airport in the evening. This hotel was totally on the mark for that. Clean, centrally... More

The rooms are modern, we had a mini suite which included a kitchen although no cooking equipment, which seems a bit odd. The hallways are quite dark, which is a bit strange. The breakfast is minimal and very expensive, better to walk downtown to the nice little cafés around the waterfront. Wifi is available in the foyer only, and is... More

Our family of four stayed here two nights (in transit between Moorea and airport). The hotel is centrally located. Rooms have been updated and were spacious. Air-conditioning worked well. It was a bit hard to find our room since the lights in the hallway were so dim. We used the pool, it was nice. If you plan to walk to... More
