This hotel is mostly a transit hotel for visitors to the islands having flown into, or are preparing to fly out of Tahiti. It is well run, clean, and faces a pretty lagoon. The resort accommodations vary widely, from small motel style rooms to lovely over-the-water bungalows. Part of the resort used to be a Travelodge, so I assume the smaller rooms are artifacts of that history. Location is everything here....book a room closer to the Sand Pool and the Lotus Room areas. Avoid the other end of the resort, which is startlingly near the airport runway (as we discovered at 1 am when a jumbo jet took off about 300 yards from our accommodations). The rooms in this area are generally noisy, as they abut a parking lot inhabited by idling tour buses, and other service activities. Book a meal at the Lotus Room restaurant on site if you can get in. Its a gastronomic experience.
