On the last day of our 2 weeks trip to French Polynesia we had long layover in Papeete (>5 hrs). We didn’t want to just sit in airport. We were hoping to have dinner in Le Lotus - fine dining restaurant in the InterContinental hotel, but they had some private function on that day and it was closed... read more

My wife and I ate here for a late lunch as we arrived and just wanted a simple lunch. Perhaps their buffet would have been a better option. Service was extremely slow, food had no seasoning (vegetables and main) and my "seared tuna" was coooked all the way through.. I had seared tuna half a dozen times at other hotels... More

Meals were the same thing every day,serving staff do their best but the food lets them down,the resort puts on special entertainment to attract diners but its hard to please when the management won't review and change the menu.

We ate breakfast and enjoyed the Friday Polynesian buffet and show at this restaurant. It has a view of the pool, lagoon and Moorea. The food was very good but much pricier than we would expect to pay in the U.S. The selection at the buffet for both breakfast and dinner was very good, with both hot and cold dishes,... More

The buffet dinner was way overpriced ($75 U.S. per person) for ok food. The regular menu was good it not anything special. I would skip this place for the other restaurant on the property any day

...you won't be disappointed! We stayed at the hotel, and wandered down for dinner to this beautiful open-air restaurant. My husband ordered the chicken in coconut milk, I the seared tuna. Both were excellent! The following day, we experienced Sunday brunch in the same, and on our last night, the island buffet. We were given a discount this last time,... More

Very disappointed with dinner The bread roll was rock hard. I chose their Polyenesian chicken with vanilla sauce. It came in a large plate with a dip on the Middle. Just two small fillets. One cooked the other half cooked. My partner had the chicken ceaser salad and that came without the chicken. We pointed out the lack of chicken... More

We stayed here for 1 night, the breakfast was good, but when we had dinner here, because we couldn't get a table at The Lotus we were disappointed, the options are very short, it is quite expensive for what they serve, the service is just ok too! Our orders were regular.

We stayed at the Intercontinental for 3 days. We had all of our breakfasts here and some lunches and 2 dinners. The options and selections were nice. The breakfast could use a few more items. The prices are steep, but in keeping with Tahiti. Keep in mind that the tip is basically included. I would avoid selections that you might... More
