We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon and thought it was fantastic. Our overwater bungalow on the private island had a spectcular view of Mt Otemanu and the lagoon back towards the main island. The bungalow was very spacious and had all the appointments you'd expect (except for a bath tub) and a very comfortable bed.
We had breakfast and dinner included which turned out to be better value than paying for each meal separately. The breakfasts on the private island were good, but sometimes it would take a while for certain items in the buffet to be replenished after they'd run out. The buffet dinners on the main island were also good, and we enjoyed the polynesian dancing shows (but the Monday night show was not as good as the Wednesday and Saturday night shows, which were excellent). We very much enjoyed the Thursday night a al carte dinner at the private island's restaurant.
Overall the hotel (both on the private island and the main island) looks well presented and maintained. The bar area on the main island is particularly good. We would recommend this hotel, and especially the overwater bungalows on the private island for a more secluded experience.
