“Great views of northern Tahiti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I am a Carlson Club member so booking this hotel felt like a no-brainer. The hotel is nice and the staff is very pleasant and accomodating. We were only staying on Tahiti for 2 nights so this hotel is further from the airport than I had anticipated.

The food was good and the pool was great.

The best tip I can give fellow travellers when staying at the Radisson Tahiti is don't eat off the American Buffet breakfast each morning. I think is was 3150 CPF per person. Ask for the a la carte menu (which is available but you seem to have to ask for it). We were able to get 2 breakfasts and coffee off the a la carte menu for about the same price as one American Buffet breakfast. The breakfasts were so big that on the second morning we just ordered one breakfast between the two of us. We mentioned to the waitress that we were sharing and so they split it across two plates. Each half portion was still big and we had more than enough to eat. We saved further $$ by going back to our room to have a breakfast coffee instead of paying for it at breakfast.

Ia Orana,

Thank you for your constructive review. We aim to provide a broad selection of dining options therefore we have both American Breakfast and Parisian Breakfast as well as a à la carte options. Thank you for addressing the issue as a future aim will be to improve the distinction between menus and dining options.

The hotel is on a beautiful black sand beach with a lovely pool and the hotel staff are very nice. HOWEVER, the property is quite run down. All the fixtures in the rooms have rust on them, the rooms are dated and worn and heavily used. The complex is a maze and hard to navigate. The other national brand resorts are far far nicer and have all the details you hope to find in Tahiti.

Ia Orana,

I am disappointed to hear that our resort did not meet your expectations and that some aspects in your room weren’t up to standard. It is our priority to provide a fulfilling and comfortable stay for all guests and so it is disappointing to hear of these issues. We are aware that our rooms are of a high standard and we will address the issues that you have brought to our attention with both Maintenance and Housekeeping staff on site.

Merci/Thank you/Mauruuru

My husband and I had an enchanting stay at the Radisson. We arrived at night, and the hotel staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We received an automatic upgrade to an ocean view suite, and we were thrilled. It was huge for us, and would be perfect for a family. It had it's own living room with pull out couch, two bathrooms, and a very comfortable king size bed. The best part was sitting on our balcony and hearing and smelling the ocean.

The next day we enjoyed the delicious breakfast buffet. I'm a vegetarian, and there is something for everyone. I will not get over those golden, crispy hash browns anytime soon! The dining area is under a thatched roof and overlooks the ocean and their pool - it couldn't get any better!

The Radisson has black sand beaches, which we had never seen before. I didn't think I would like them as much as white sand beaches, but the sand is so soft! It was like walking on black marshmallow fluff.

The pool is FABULOUS, we really enjoyed swimming and laying by the pool - don't forget your sunscreen!

We loved the open air tropical feel of this resort. Would definitely stay there again if in Papeete.

We stayed one week and got a flying start for our trip. Arriving 5 am we could check in right away. The room was charmingly designed with dark wooden furniture and sea view. For swimming you can choose between the black sanded beach and the infinity pool - or just switch between them until you get tired and need a Pina Colada (half price during happy hour). The sweet smell of the flowering trees is everywhere and makes you happy, as well as the staff who is knowledgeable and always very friendly and helpful. There is everything you need at the hotel: restaurant, spa, gym, shop, different sports and activities, dance shows in the evening etc.
The dishes in the restaurant were not impressive though and the price for the breakfast (ca 30€/person/day) made us buy our own food that we enjoyed on our balcony.
Another little minus is the distance to the city centre. Taxi rate are high and it is definitely too far to walk. We recommend to hire a car right away if you want to see something of the island and the city.

We stayed at this hotel for half day because of our post cruise package arrangement. The room was very spacious which almost like a one bedroom apartment. It has one and a half bathroom, a living room and good size bedroom. One drawback of the room is that the lighting is very dim and hard to read anything inside the room after sunset. The resort itself is beautiful, don't miss to take pictures of the beautiful sunset. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant, not too much selections to choose and it was very expensive. The hotel has a nice swimming pool and the staffs were very friendly to the guests. Our cruise guests arrived at the hotel at 3:30pm and most of the rooms were not ready. We have to wait till after 4 pm before we can check-in to our rooms.

We were a bit skeptical after reading recent reviews, but we had nothing less than excellent service from the staff and a great room. Our room was not ready when we arrived, we we're a bit early. We were escorted to the Pool Bar, and given free drinks while waiting. We were given a thorough orientation of the resort once our room was ready, and our bags were in our room when we got there. Service response was excellent: a light was out in the bathroom and replaced within a few hours after we informed the front desk. We requested an ethernet cable for our room since the wireless only works in the lobby and bar, and it was delivered within an hour.
The room was nice,clean, and comfortable. The entire grounds were well maintained. The beach is black sand, but still a great area for swimming if you want something besides a pool or jacuzzi.
We had a very good dinner at the restaurant one night, a late lunch another day, and appetizers from the pool bar for a happy hour another day. Happy hour snacks aren't too impressive, but the lunch and dinner meals were very good, with efficient and friendly service. We did not eat a breakfast buffet there, seemed a bit expensive and we didn't want that much.
The twice daily shuttle to the city is a nice option to take to town for a small breakfast. it gives you plenty of time to wander the city & market.
We have been visiting French Polynesia for nearly 30 years and seldom stay on Tahiti for more than 1 night, but we thoroughly enjoyed or 3 night stay here so much we may do it again on our next visit.

Room Tip: Select a duplex suite if possible. Rooms are in different buildings, numbers 4 & 5 are by the po...
