“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

This hotel has a nice, clean and comfortable room. The staff are very prompt. That time, the fridge in our room does not work well and they replace it in no time. Receptionists are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant next to the pool offers a good breakfast and Tahitian dance show at the night.

My wife and I stayed here on our last night of the honeymoon before catching the flight back to Australia. Given it was our honeymoon we booked an ocean view jacuzzi room, and must say we were disappointed. First of all, the main benefits of the hotel were that it was reasonably priced (compared to other accommodation in Tahiti anyway), and that it was a little bit out of Papeete and so there were quieter surrounds. Also, the hotel did allow us to check in early which was appreciated.

However, it definitely had its negatives, for which we encountered three in our 18 hour visit. First, the ocean view jacuzzi has horizontal blinds that did not work (permanently shut), which meant that it was just a dimmed jacuzzi corner - and definitely without an ocean view. More generally, the hotel is very much in need of significant investment & renovation. Secondly, while the staff allowed us to check-in early, our towels were not delivered until almost 6pm - and required three follow-ups with concierge. Thirdly, the food, my wife had a hamburger for lunch, which was acceptable, and we both had a buffet dinner - which was average (it wasn't "terrible", but fussy eaters (like my wife) would not find the quality of the meat acceptable. We left very early in the morning to make our flight so didn't have breakfast.

As an inexpensive transit point the hotel is ok (note that it is on the opposite side of town to the airport so is a bit of a trip), however I wouldn't recommend it as a "destination" hotel unless you are after nothing more than the very basics. For most people who travel halfway around the world to come here don't make this your port-of-call.

Ia Orana,

We thank you for the time spent to write this comment about our Resort.

We understand and regret sincerely that you are disappointed on your stay with us. Also, we took your remarks in consideration and have transmited them to services concerned.

It seems that your room doesn't fit with your expectations from a destination resort.
For information, we provide lots of activities (cultural, soft sports) for free for our clients. We also provide a free shuttle to city centre of Papeete and have an Activity Desk well experimented in tours organization.

We wish you all the best and apologize for the inconvenience.

Kindest regards - Mauru'uru

We spent 3 nights in Raddison before our Bora Bora holiday. Nice hotel,but if you are staying longer get room far away from restaurant and swimming pool. Nice and spacious rooms with spa, we had 1404 with good view of ocean. Remember on this side of island beach is BLACK. Restaurant is serving good choice of meals,but if you are vegeterian plus GF than life is hard!!!.
Reception is very frendly and quick in booking your trips around island. Free shuttle to Papeete runs twice a day.
Book your trip around Tahiti with Dave - nice and very well prepared, takes about4-5 hours. For more adventures - 4x4 safari into interior valley. Recommended.

Room Tip: Far away from restaurant - block 1

Stayed here 2 nights, 1 on the way to Moorea and 1 on the way back. The staff are just wonderful, they upgraded us to the jacuzzi room both times and were so polite and helpful even at 1am and 5am. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we loved hearing the ocean while we were sleeping. The only small inconvenience we had was arriving so late we were starving but there's not a big selection on room service after 10pm, so bring plenty of change for the vending machine.

I stayed 1 night in March 2011, in my way to Bora Bora, precisely the day of the earthquake of Japan.
Right after I arrived to the hotel there was the alert of Tsunami. Since I had a room in an upper floor, they ordered me to stay in the room for the fear of giant tides. I learnt from TV the terrible things that had happened in Japan. I was shocked. Early in the morning the Tsunami alert was lifted and it was the time to go to the airport to take my plane to Bora Bora.
Hotel was very nice

My wife and I stayed for seven nights and found the staff very friendly and helpfull ,the room we stayed in was a little tired but the view from the balcony was fantastic .The breakfast buffet was great each morning, with a nice variety of breads, fruits, yogurts,and more. The pool was fantastic and beach area was alright but you wouldn't stay here for the beach , next time we come to Tahiti we will stay one or two nights at the radisson and then head off to Moorea where the beachs are superb .

We thank you very much for this post, this is a real pleasure to read this comment!

We are glad that you enjoy you stay with us at the Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti.
Our Resort is the only the East Cost of Tahiti, the most savage part of the Island.
When you came from a tour on other Polynesian Islands with white sand beach, the black sand is very exotic !

We hope to see you again at the Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti and wish you a great day.

We stayed here one night prior to catching our flight back home the following morning hoping to get some rest. This was a mistake. First of all, the hotel is 20 minutes or more from the airport. Second, the hotel has a bar above its restaurant that plays loud music until late at night. We were originally given a room that was above the bar, but asked to be moved. We were able to get a room at the furthest end of the hotel and away from the bar; however, the music is SO loud that we could still hear the music until late at night. Additionally, the walls of the rooms are very thin. So, don't expect privacy. We could hear our neighbors laughing and talking until late a night as well. It was if they were inside the room with us.

The rooms were below average and old. We didn't even have a proper shower! The shower fixtures were so old that I was afraid that they were come off the walls of the shower if I pulled too hard.

The restaurant didn't have the greatest food given how expensive it was.

The workers at the hotel were nice. However, if you called down to the front desk, it took several trials before someone answered the phone.

We would definitely NOT stay here again or recommend to any friends and family.

Warmest Tahitian,

We would like to thank you for the time spent in posting this comment.

Also, you probably arrived on Saturday 27th October 2012. It was a special Lafayette Sunset - Mojito Party for an exceptional re-opening of our Lafayette Bar, which has closed for 1 year and a half.

We choose to organize events there once a month to revitalize the Resort’s life.
For information, the Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti is not a nightclub and the party ended at midnight.

We apologize if this event disturbed your stay in our Resort and take your feedback into account.

Kindest regards – Mauru’uru
