Our stay at Maitai was great. I have to say, the receptionists were exceptional. They were always very friendly, welcoming, and patient. They greeted us with a flower lei and a fancy mango juice concoction. Pros: Very diverse hotel guests (families, gay couples, honeymooners, different races, old and young, we seen them all!). Compared to other hotels we visited, Maitai... More

We visited the maitai on april 2015. This is a 3 star hotel so BEWARE, do not expect first class treatment, food, entertainment, or installations. We stayed at an overwater bungalow and for us what made this vacation grate was the privacy and intimacy that this small hotel offers, thats the only reason why i would come back. You get... More

The Maitai Hotel over water beach bungalow should be considered an aquatic adventure and not a beach experience. First of all, if you are looking for nice long walks on a beach as so many people think of a beach vacation, then save your time and go to the Caribbean. The beaches here are small only when they can be... More

We stayed 4 nights in an over-water bungalow which was on our bucket list. The hotel staff were great getting us checked-in plus a free late check out on the last day. The desk also lined up a couple of trips including a free ride to and from BLOODY MARY'S RESTAURANT (a must do for seafood). The snorkeling was excellent... More

I was here on business so my expectations were not high We stayed in the rooms at the back of the resort and they were what you would find in any 3 star hotel in the world. The bed was soft, the air-con worked and the shower was large For the price it was fine and if you are looking... More

We stayed in a beautiful overwater bungalow, very nicely decorated with a glass bottom under the coffee table to watch the fish. Large bathroom with a walk in shower but no tub, for those who care. We didn't. Toilet in seperate, enclosed space. The only drawback was that the deck was not large enough for reclining lawnchairs, but the 2... More

We went to Bora Bora in the low season. 1st week of April 2014. Le Maitai was great, and added bonus it is owned by Polynesians not corporate fat cats in Paris or the US. The reception staff was great. Pora Porans are wonderful people. Always polite, calm, and laid back... I guess that's to be expected given they live... More

My husband and I just returned from spending five days in an over-water bungalow at Hotel Maitai. We could not have been more pleased. Their prices, compared to other and more ""American" resorts are very good. The design of the hotel and the landscaping could not be nicer. I did a lot of research before settling on the Maitai.

Look no farther! It is the best hotel on the island for your money. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there in March, 2014. This is a wonderful hotel. It is not very big, which makes is very romantic. It is run by a local lady who really cares about this place. We felt very welcomed and we will... More
