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...

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...

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...

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...

We stayed the last night of our vacation at Royal Tahitian and loved everything about this hotel. We thought the service was exceptional! Yasmina (the front desk manager) was a joy to deal with! We arrived in the morning (around 9:30 am) and she allowed us to check in early. When we entered into our room it was like walking...

Probably the best kept secret on Tahiti, best value for the money. An excellent out-of-the-way,location, but only 3 miles from downtown very busy Papeete, easily accessible with the affordable public transit system. Excellent service, nice large rooms, all with garden view. Beautifully landscaped grounds, great for sun tanning and walks. Outstanding restaurant, another great value for the budget minded traveler....
