The hotel is right on the beach in Fare. Fare is a sleepy, quiet town which suited us perfectly. We did some amazing boat trips and car tours around Fare. The hotel is near the Fare surf break and I surfed there a few times (it was excellent, by the way). The hotel has a fascinating museum about the local... More

It is located on one of the best stops for ocean view. Rooms are spacious, small swimming pool, sunset is beautiful. Wifi is quite expensive, food is average, very short of staff, but then tourists go there for the views. We ordered rooms service and the tray was left uncollected for two days. The usual cockerels' orchestra all night long... More

Loved the tropical garden by the lake setting. Hotel is new, so it also mean there are room for improvement. Wifi, refrigerator not working. Beach is bit of rocky Dinner is great, not so much for the breakfast. Landscape setting make it 4out of 5 for me

**this review is for a massage I had at the hotel by Bianca- I was not a guest at the hotel** Quite simply, Bianca is one of the best massages I've ever had (as an athlete I have them every 2-3 weeks at home in the states). I'm a competitive runner and needed firm pressure to iron out all my... More

In general, not sure I would recommend a trip to Huahine. I thought it would be cool cause tourism hasn't really hit it yet, but there's really not much to do and it's not that easy to get around the island and things are pretty spread out. The Maitai may indeed be one of the best places to stay on... More

The room is good equipped, there is a museum at reception. There is a plenty of vegetation and the place is well maintained. When entered the room there were 3 problems that were fixed during half hour. The beach near the hotel is very nice. If want to drink coconut milk just in the left side out of the beach... More

The hotel and adjoining restaurant, pool and lovely beach is located in the town of Fare. Its large and well appointed rooms are very private and quiet except for the wake-up calls in the early morning hours by the local roosters. Our room was in a separate structure on a lovely lake within easy walking distance from the main office.... More

This resort's main virtues are basic: the rooms have air conditioning and the beds are soft. The housecleaning is also reasonably good with respect to minimizing sand in the room. These creature comforts make the place a good alternative to pensions and hostels for less adventurous travelers. The location is also amazing. It's on a beautiful beach on Huahine, the... More

I stayed here for six days in June 2015. This place is just gorgeous. The rooms are everything you'd expect for an expensive high-end luxury hotel -- fridge, tv, and a bathroom bigger than most New York apartments. What's really nice is the attention to detail. Like in the bathrooms, there are Tahitian pearls embedded in the tile trim. There... More

upon arrival they refused to provide the room promised on the phone. Also, mosquitoes were so bad that my wife contracted Chikungunya and had to seek medical treatment. The staff showed total indifference They also nickel dime you to death for everything. We have visited 7 islands in French Polynesia and have had nothing but 100% great experiences. This spot...
