On our way across The Pacific to Australia we booked a 5 night stopover at this hotel and we were not disappointed.
We had read some reviews before booking warning that the hotel was worn and needed updating.
It is true the outer décor of the hotel has faded a bit but that is mainly on the surface it still maintains its quality. Whoever designed this hotel knew what they were doing. The reception is big ,airy and cool with the lounge area large and well laid out. The room we had was spacious and spotlessly clean with tasteful décor. The bed was comfy and there was a big bathroom and nicely appointed balcony overlooking the gardens which gave a great view of the sunset every day. The staff were friendly and helpful and any request was dealt with efficiently. We avoided the terribly expensive breakfast and dining in the hotel and ate locally from a variety of alternatives. For those not content to sit in the sun all day by the sandy bottomed pool there were water aerobic classes going on several times a day. These were attended by both hotel guests and locals and we were made to feel very welcome to join in and had to brush up on our rusty French skills to get the most out of it.
There was also a yoga class at the end of the day. Other water sports were available down by the lagoon.
On our last night we splashed out on a seafood buffet and Polynesian culture show it was pretty expensive but the food was very good with lots of choice and a nice way to finish off the visit.
