We stayed here for our last two nights in FP. After eight days in a vacation rental on Moorea, the large room, air conditioning, properly working toilets and restaurant/bar were welcome amenities. Yes, the decor is dated, but the staff is friendly and accommodating, the grounds are beautiful, and the property is quiet (except for the roosters!). There is a... More

After a cruise on the Aranui 3, a friend and I stayed at the Royal Tahitien, and found it the perfect place to wind down and prepare for the flight home. True, it is old style, 60's decor. But the room was huge, with a full kitchen, tile floors, drapes that kept out the light, and a/c that worked and... More

We had an emergency while travelling in French Polynesia and my husband was hospitalized and I was able to get a room at this hotel across the street. I found the hotel staff very accomodating and sympathetic. The room I got faced the ocean and it was actually a beautiful view. The room does look like it's from the 60s... More

Checked in late evening, room was on 2nd floor and no offer of helping with luggage, pointed to location of room and left on my own... More

The rooms are dated. The AC didn't work. There were bugs in the room. There was no hair dryer. No toiletries either. Just a small bar of soap. Any complaints to the front desk were met with an unfriendly "it is being handled". Nothing was ever handled. There were 14 of us on a post cruise stay. We were all... More

The best customer service ever! Yasmin is amazing, friendly, real and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated but I hope they never update or else they will raise the prices. It is extremely peaceful, the grounds are lovely and being just a sprawling two story building you don't have the feel of a huge resort. Each room has a... More

We originally planned a four night stay at this hotel and ended up staying six. The garden was beautiful and by Tahitian standards the restaurant was economical with a good menu. The adjacent bar had good sunset views overlooking the black sand beach. The single most significant plus of this hotel was Yasmina at reception. The assistance she provided us... More

The rooms are pretty old, however the pool and garden are beautiful. There is a black sand beach in front that is good for swimming as well. The restaurant is pretty good and quite popular with locals. The staff is extremely helpful and they even got us free tickets to the Heiva dance festival. For inexpensive meals ask the staff...
