We just returned from French Polynesia and spend a few nights at Hotel Tahiti Nui. The room was way above expectation with two full rooms and a very nice bathroom. It was sparkling clean, the air conditioner worked efficiently and the service was very friendly. There is free WiFi, but in the lobby only. If our travels ever get us... More

We stayed in executive suite on sixth floor. There were 4 of us finishing a tour of bora bora and moorea. It is a 2 level suite, air conditioning doesn't work well in top floor bedrooms. Ice machine doesn't work on sixth floor and you need an engineering degree to figure the machine out. Balcony is cool if you smoke,... More

Good location if you’re in Tahiti for one or two nights and wanting to stay in town. The ferry building, markets, roulettes, and shops are all within a few minutes’ walk. The room was clean and spacious, but the bed was very soft, and the bathroom was super dark. Actually the hotel in general was dark, not sure if this... More

We started our honeymoon at this hotel. We had the junior suite. The maintanance is poor. For example missing drawers in the chest of the drawers. Several lightbulbs not working etc. The second night something was wrong with the sink in the bathroom. It would only deliver boiling hot water, which made it impossible to wash hands, brush teeth etc.... More

We stayed here for a night on our way back from Moorea and found the experience rather uninspiring. The hotel staff were friendly and were happy to confirm with the shuttle company our airport transfer the next day; however, the room itself was average and there was a lot of road noise considering we were not looking directly out over...

Only English channel on tv is CNN. Only WiFi is in the lobby. Not particularly close to anything. One restaurant which is very expensive. Simple breakfast buffet is almost $40.00. The alternative is to go to the Gas Station next door. NO water views. Rooms really need refreshing. Cracked floor tile. Torn bed linens. Significant wall scrapes. Frayed shears on... More

The hotel is expensive in absolute terms, but Tahiti is expensive. Prices here are competitive with other hotels in Papeete. But the add-ons are way too expensive by any stretch. The breakfast buffet was $40 and consisted of barely cooked bacon, tomatoes, hash browns, and this being a French territory, 6 kinds of bread. That and those little fun-size boxes... More

Looking for a great place to stay either before or after the cruise. The Hotel Tahiti Nui is a clean spacious modern place to get a good rest and check out Papeete. Beautiful pool, nice spa. great place to sun tan. Nice staff, clean and safe; everything except a beach.

Tahiti Nui We stayed here for an overnight at the end of our holiday in French Polynesia so we could fly out early. To begin, we had 4 bags and carry on because we are divers. When our cab pulled up there was only one functional door and no bellman. We managed to get our luggage in the lobby and... More
