The MaiTai Bora Bora was a very pleasant stay. We chose one of the over water bungalows, room 104. It was just right for snorkeling from the deck. The water was about chest height so we didn't feel out of our depth right away. We built up the small reef under our bungalow from just a few stones by collecting... More

We found the overwater bungalows to be wonderful, the private docks were great and the glass opening to view the fish was a great touch. The restaurant service in all restaurants there seemed very slow but we soon learned that was Polynesia and not to expect any different. Everyone at the hotel was really nice and more than willing to... More

If you've never been to Bora Bora let ye be forewarned, it's expensive... Hotel MaiTai is the best bang for your buck around. Great rooms, nice staff and a good location. Good place to make your home base on the island!

We stayed at Hotel Maitai in early November and stayed in a garden room for a few days then an overwater bungalow for another 5 days. Both rooms were clean and spacious. It was great value and within walking distance to cafes, Matira Beach and a coupe of supermarkets in either direction. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise with a... More

We had booked an overwater bungalow and the price and what they offered was not bad. The bungalow is almost 50 sqm and it was opened to the sea directly. The reef was not so bad but if you want to see something interesting you have to swim far away from the beach. All employees, except one, are nice but... More

This is the only Polynesian owned hotel on the island and you really feel the culture here. It is located in the absolute most perfect spot on the island, just a minutes walk to everything you could possibly need, and the staff is unbelievably friendly. I absolutely loved this hotel and after visiting a few others on the island and... More

Maitai was in the perfect location, as we came for Hawaiki Nui Va'a to support some friends. I had a regular room which fit three people comfortably, as there was a king size bed and pull out sofa. It's probably due for a renovation at some point, but you can't complain for the price. If you're expecting a 5-star resort,... More

Nothing fancy about this small resort. I did not expect too much but I was more than satisfied. In a beautiful but expensive place like Bora-Bora, and if you want to be reasonable with your spending- Maitai is just perfect! I opted for a garden view room; in it a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom plus a balcony. My... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights during our 5 week holiday to celebrate our 32nd anniversary. We were in beach bungalow # 9 which is the best one of the bunch in terms of views. Pros: The staff is friendly and helpful especially the night duty manager who was gracious and kind in helping us solve a... More

I've traveled all over the world since I was a baby, this was a trip that is embedded in my mind! From the moment I arrived at Hotel Maitai they rolled out the red carpet. I was traveling with a 5 month old baby & my other two children (7 & 12). They went above & beyond to make things... More
