We spent two nights here. It is close to the airport (about a $30 private taxi). Our room was facing the ocean and had all the basics. They follow COVID protocol and offer housekeeping which was a plus for us. The pool is really beautiful and we enjoyed spending time here. The food trucks just down the street were a nice option for the first night there as we arrived pretty late but they were still open. We also were able to walk to a French Restaurant that was really nice although after dark the road is a bit dangerous as there are sections without sidewalk. The hotel had breakfast which was nice.

I really enjoyed my time at Manava- the location is right next to the public dock where my boat picked up every morning. Breakfast and coffee were a must as this was only one of a couple places open so early in the morning. Teharati, one of the restaurant leads, was such an amazing host and added a ton of value to my time at the hotel. Can't thank her enough for everything she did for me!

We arrived on the late flight from SFO (United) so we could not get to Moorea that night. This was an excellent place to stay for the night; close to the airport, close to food trucks (left out of hotel and 1 block on left) and close to mini market (Tahiti can be expensive). We also stayed the night prior to our departure. They provided late checkout, showering room and storage for our luggage. Staff at front desk took care of all taxis and recommended local restaurants (they were excellent). We had lagoon view rooms for both stays (highly suggested because of views). Taxi from airport is about $25 and to ferry about $30. Rooms could do with some upgrades but overall we would highly recommend a short stay at this hotel.

This hotel serves families well. We stayed 5 nights here in one of the Lagoon facing suites and it was just what we needed. The suite is spacious with a separate bedroom, a large kitchenette with a stovetop, microwave, kettle, and small fridge. The fold-out couch was sturdy and comfortable for our two children. The outdoor terrace overseeing the lagoon and Moorea in the distance was our favorite spot when we were in the room not exploring Tahiti. The hotel is a little rundown and the rooms can certainly do with a facelift but it serves the purpose given its reasonable price range and proxemics in Tahiti. It's 10 minutes from the airport and about 12 minutes from the city center. The nearby marina had a few lively-yet-safe restaurants (nice given everywhere is rather quiet due to COVID). We rented a car from the hotel and explored all the beaches and even made it over to Moorea for a day because the ferry terminal isn't too far either. There is a small yet well-stocked market 2 minutes across the street from Manava (don't miss the fresh baguettes). Overall, the staff at the hotel was cordial and tried their best to help when needed.
