“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Intercontinental both pre and post cruise. The hotel was well appointed and we had a comfortable room. as was stated, the meal costs are very expensive. breakfast at $48 each is outrageous...but the buffet was good. We skipped lunch. Staff are very helpful and polite. For a short stay, I would not pay the high rate for an over water bungalow. The hotel is close to the airport. There is a grocery store when you turn left from the hotel and we stocked up on wine to take to the cruise ship.

Wife and me visited the island october 2013. Was really impressed with the hotel staff and service. We had booked the over water bungalow and was upgraded twice. The view was just breath taking. Had gone for the whale watching tour, unfortunately didnt get to see any. Overall an amazing experience. Love the way the locals say "Ia Orana" meaning hello.

Room Tip: over water bungalows.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We recently stayed at the IC Tahiti pre and post cruise in April 2014.

The difference between a "panoramic view" room and a "lagoon view" room are like night and day, at least it was for us.


The panoramic room was spacious, clean, comfortable bed, air conditioning kept the room cool, the bathroom was spacious, with a seperate shower and tub. It is as everyone suggests a wonderful room.

The lagoon view room was small, the a/c barely worked, the bathroom was small, with a tub and no shower, except for a hand held shower head that attached to a hook on the wall. It took us quite a bit of time to figure out how this worked, and we we needed to steady the shower arm with the clothes line in order to take a shower. The water pressure dropped every few minutes, so you never knew if you were going to be frozen or scalded.

If you stay there, spend the extra money and get a panoramic room. I can't say if other rooms that are lagoon view are as bad as the one we had, but we were not impressed.

Room Tip: Do not let them put you in room 365

Spent two nights here before a Paul Gaughin cruise and had a lovely stay. We opted to stay in the main building rather than the overwater bungalows and were very pleased with our accommodations. The room was spacious, quiet, and had a beautiful view of the ocean from our balcony. Although the main pool was being refurbished, the beach was magnificent and the auxiliary pool was more than adequate. We did have dinner at the hotel and enjoyed the complimentary Polynesian show which happens every Friday night and was excellent. Food was good but fairly pricey. If you stay here for any length if time, try to get a plan with meals included.

When we arrived the view just walking into the lobby was amazing. The property is well cared for on the outside. We were here 3 nites pre cruise. We booked a panoramic view room. Check in was a little slow but then we were taken to our room. View was good, room was big. No screens on the balcony so AC it was.
Bathroom is large, al tho was not as clean as I like. Room is dated and needs to be updated and refreshed. Staff is courteous but not overly nice, and could be rude at the desk. Porters were nice and helpful. Dined in the Le Tiare restaurant most of the time and found the Head Waiter Auralian was a GEM. He was always there to help and make sure the food was served as we ordered it. The prices are a little redicoulous as breakfast was $48.00 per person, lunch buffets $128.00 per person. NOTHING IS FREE THERE- no water, coffee, tea nothing......If you are a Rewards member you get the slower standard internet in your room which was helpful and in the lobby as well. I was not welcomed as a rewards guest.
Pools are great, altho they could keep the swim up bar pool cleaner. The lagoonarium is very nice. On our return stay we were upgraded to the OWB and I was excited, till I got to the room. They are in poor shape, clean and good size.
Railings were very rickety the steps getting into the water full of moss and barnacles,, so wear water sh oes. Lots of fish around the bungalow.
Oh and the hotel's exchange rate for the US Dollar was lower by far than any of the other establishments we visted while in Tatiti......

Room Tip: Ask for a newer remodeled room, as they are upgrading some of them. The OWB on the side we were on...

We stayed at the intercontinental as part of a pre-cruise package so to us the value was very good but if I had booked independently I may not have felt it was as good of a value. The rooms were good and as a Gold member the wi-if was free. The grounds are beautiful and the beach pool with swim up bar was very nice. The resort is very spread out so be prepared to walk. We stayed in a logo on view room in the main part of the hotel. The over water bungalows were being updated and needed it from what we could see. They are not worth the money until fully updated. As to be expected, the food was very expensive. Overall it was an enjoyable stay just go in with your eyes open.

We stayed 2 nights prior to cruising. Arrived 7 hours prior to check-in so they stored our bags but we had to wait about 2 hours for a changing room. Food at the restaurants is outrageous. Our bungalow was fantastic. Sitting area had coffee/tea desk area, electric tea pot, refrigerator, sofa with large window above and behind it, chair, table and glass sliding door. Large bedroom with glass sliding door and large window over desk. Big bathroom with over sized tub for 2 with separate shower and separate toilet room with door. All walls had woven bamboo and ceiling was high thatched with ceiling fan along with a/c. Very nice deck with 2 lounge chairs and stairs down to a barely above the water deck with a shower and stairs into the water, making it easy to get out of the water after diving in and swimming. Two large beautiful infinity pools, one of which was a totally sand bottom with swim up bar/food service. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Over water bungalows are very tropical and private.
