We were traveling on a Pleasant Holidays package to Tahiti. The hotel and pool were very nice. The staff was rude and not friendly at all, even at the pool bar. Never attempted to help us with anything, we felt like we were bothering them. They have Wi-Fi in the lobby only, TV channels in French only. Maid service was... More

We stayed at the Manava for two nights at the beginning of our trip in French Polynesia and at the end of it after enjoying Moorea, Bora Bora and Huaine. Compared to all the other hotels, the service at the Manava is poor. There is no concierge service offered by the hotel. A travel agency comes a couple hours a... More

We recently stayed at the Manava for a single night on the way to Moorea arriving in the late afternoon. The view form the infinity pool to Moorea with the sun setting behind the island was magical. The hotel is a fair distance from Papeete and not well serviced with local stores or banking facilities. The local ATM could not... More

The rooms are great, lots if space and full kitchen facilities. Ice is available from ice makers outside the rooms. The breakfast was expensive and not great. There were flies on the pastries, so I did not eat them. Not just a few flies, heaps of them. The bar was cool. The dinner was really good. We may have come... More

I stayed for 3 nights july 9th-12th after a 3 week holiday around the other islands of French Polynesia. We chose this hotel as the rooms had a separate bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge and we were travelling with our 12yr old son. At first I was not impressed with the hotel but it grew on me....
