We loved this location, had an east-facing bungalow, saw the sunset each morning. The glass floor piece was very small, a gimmick really, but we did snorkel off our patio. Wonderful view, breakfast was great, restaurant had lovely food, decent prices. Staff were very helpful. Very close to Matira Beach, walkable for sure, and could walk to other restaurants, stores, etc. Great price for the location!

We came from Tahiti and flew Air Tahiti, who also provided the boat shuttle to the main island in Bora Bora, Vaitape, included in the ticket cost. Maitai then had a taxi there waiting for us to take us to the hotel, about 15 or so minutes. Stayed here for 4 nights in a beach bungalow (Aloha 10), which was a perfect location for us. One bungalow on the right of us, none on the left. Kayaks directly out front for use at any time the plage workers were there to help. Check in across the street was very friendly and hospitable, and we received beautiful lei upon arrival. Porter carried our bags to our beautiful bungalow which I believe looks just like the over the water rooms on the interior. Very clean room with no issues for us at all. Not run down, and are exactly as pictured online (which was fantastic, as I have stayed in other bungalows in FP that do not look like what they advertise). Sliding doors opened up to our back lanai on the sand, and 10 more feet to the beach/water. We had chairs and a table on the lanai to enjoy our cocktails, pupu, and coffee, and lounge chairs at the water's edge at our disposal. Electric kettle allowed us to cook ramen for snacks and make our own coffee. The mini fridge kept our duty free wine and beers icy cold, and our leftover dinners. (Get duty free in Tahiti BEFORE leaving for Bora Bora, as liquor is VERY expensive here.) The bungalows seemed full and also the over the water rooms, but no one really was at the private beach, which was fantastic, just occasional snorkelers. It was very quiet on the beach, and a pier is right there if you need a water taxi or to be picked up for an excursion. We could snorkel around the over the water rooms or go for swims around the area. Took the kayak out one day up and down the coast, which was gorgeous and fun. Kayaked over a big ray at one point :) We had a sailing excursion one day, which picked us up at the pier out front. Very convenient. If I could have one alert- it would be to prepare for the road noise around 6am when people are scootering or driving cars to go to work during "rush hour". The first morning it was jarring, but actually when we put earplugs in it wasn't too bad, and we got used to it by day 2 and it didn't even bother us at all. But prepare for your first morning, as you won't be able to sleep in. The advantage I guess is that the sunrises are ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING- so open those curtains and watch from your bed- you are going to freak out at how insanely beautiful it is!!!! We loved our stay here, have only good things to say, and would stay here again in this same bungalow!! Maruuru roa Maitai!

We stayed for 10 days the first time, and 2 weeks this time. The location on the island makes walking to restaurants and the white sand beach very easy. The overwater bungalows are the best deal in Bora Bora with the added bonus that the noise from the road doesn’t reach there.

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon, and it was such an amazing time. We were able to stay in an overwater bungalow for a very affordable price. The staff was very friendly and the views were spectacular. They provide snorkeling gear and kayaks for the guests. They also provide breakfast every morning, I recommend asking for an omelet. It’s not on the menu, but they will make it for you and it’s delicious. The restaurant on their property is really good as well. I decided to order the bolognese, which is kind of weird to order when you’re in Bora Bora, but it was so good that I ended up ordering it again the next day. There is a market right down the road to get snacks and alcohol. But just know, they don’t sell alcohol on Sundays. There was also a fun restaurant within walking distant to the hotel called Bora Bora Beach Club, we went there multiple times during our stay. Our room was really cool, when you first walk in, the coffee table is basically a window into the ocean. There is a nice big patio with a private deck and a latter into the water. You can just jump off the deck and swim to the beach. I would definitely come back to this resort.

My husband and I were only here for one night in the King room with garden view and we wished we could have stayed longer. We met at the ferry terminal and were taken via the hotel transfer to our hotel. Right away when we entered the hotel we were greeted with beautiful flower necklaces and a refreshing welcome drink. We were shown our rooms that were very clean and decorated with Polynesian accents. The lush garden throughout the resort was beautiful to walk through. The hotel had its own private beach and complimentary use of snorkels that we used to see the many varieties of fish in their man-made coral reefs. It was really cool the process they used to make the coral reefs. We were also able to watch a traditional Polynesian dance that evening which was a very cool experience. This resort is very close walking distance to Maitira beach and to local shops. The friendly and attentive staff definitely made us wish we were able to stay longer and the little departure gift was well-appreciated. I think this is a perfect resort for those who are budget conscious but wants a charming well-maintained hotel that is close to many restaurants and local beaches. The only issue is the walls were thin so we could hear our neighbours singing (good thing they weren't terrible singers).

We originally booked a beach bungalow here for a 3 night stop on our honeymoon. When we arrived, the front desk staff told us that we were upgraded to an overwater bungalow as a congratulations. In addition, we also received a pareo and tshirt, as well as a round of free drinks! The staff here was probably our favorite and least favorite part. They were the friendliest hotel staff we encountered overall and they remembered our name and room number everywhere we went. The main issue was that there was not enough of them. It took us almost two hours to get drinks at happy hour one night and there were several meals when the restaurant only had one server. The beach here was amazing and provided wonderful views as well as snorkeling. The hotel is close to a market where you can stock up on water and beer. The restaurant on the beach had amazing pizzas, salad, and seafood. We were less impressed with the restaurant next to the bar, but loved the Polynesian show they put on. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here.

I walked into my lagoon view room and was gobsmacked. A million dollar view (see the photos attached) with a vivid palette of blues and greens was mine without the hefty price tag for which Bora Bora is infamous. My modern room with a balcony did not disappoint either. After many days staying in thatched roof Polynesian bungalows, this room - which I could hermetically seal from all the geckos, spiders, mosquitoes, mayflies, roaches and other creepy crawlies that adore this garden of eden - was exactly what the doctor ordered. I was as happy as a clam in my room. Housekeeping was extremely efficient and took good care to ensure that my bathroom was amply stocked with towels and toiletries. The hotel’s tiny beach was very peaceful and relaxing, as was the gorgeous lagoon. Paradise is rarely perfect and sure enough, I have two big criticisms: - Breakfast was by far the most unhygienic buffet I have ever seen, extremely surprising in these Covid-19 times. In its infinite wisdom, the hotel has eliminated all serving cutlery from dishes in the buffet. All this would be fine if guests were given single use tongs (as at the Intercontinental in Tahiti) to serve themselves and then leave in a tray for used serving tomgs. Instead, small quantities of cutlery, each set wrapped in a napkin, were laid out at the start of the buffet with not cutlery laid out at tables. Guess what? Nearly all the guests I observed went back to their tables with the cutlery they used to serve themselves, they then ate with the same cutlery and went back with their used cutlery to serve themselves again from the buffet!!! Few people thought of using another clean set of cutlery to serve themselves on return trips to the buffet. I mentioned this to the restaurant manager, Myreille, who just shrugged and blamed guests for not being responsible. I blame the hotel for having a dumb system that is not intuitive and that is far less hygienic than even a pre-Covid buffet. At least in the old days people didn’t wander back to buffets with spoons, forks and knives they had already used to eat with and plunge them into dishes meant to be shared with others! One day this buffet will be a super spreader of Covid-19 if this system is not changed. - WiFi was very poor as several other guests have noted. It worked rarely and for only very short intervals in the room. It worked much better near the reception, but anything that went beyond the basics was often impossible even there. All said and done, I enjoyed my stay, but I was very uneasy about the breakfast buffet and the lack of action on the hotel’s part even after I pointed out how dreadfully unhygienic it was to Myreille, the manager.

I spent two days at the Maitai over New Years. Very reasonably priced for Bora Bora with a wonderfully friendly staff. They really go above and beyond. Just as friendly and responsive as the staff at the 5* motu resorts in which I have stayed. Only a short walk to Matira Beach, shops, and restaurants. Great option for those who are on a budget or want to stay on the mainland for a night or two to stock up on alcohol, snacks, and other supplies rather than paying the huge mark ups charged by the motu resorts. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I took my daughter on a 3 island trip and Bora Bora was our last island for 4 nights in an overwater bungalow. We had Bungalow #3. WOW-the views, the gorgeous clear water, the sea life, the whole experience was one of the best I've ever had. To think I can just jump into the water from my deck and spend hours exploring the underwater world. We were in heaven. Our bungalow was well appointed. We had brought extra adapters and did not have a problem charging the many electronic devices we had. The wi-fi is sketchy. One had to log-on a lot of times daily. It goes out and you don't realize it and texts were waiting. Fortunately with t-mobile I had free 3G service, slow, but better than nothing. We were using Messenger to communicate with family back home. TV only had CNN. Since we were here during the election situation, it was good we at least had one source of news. We read, we napped, we snorkeled. Did I say Paradise was found. As far as the buffet breakfast, it was just ok. Since this was COVID time we were only allowed to use our own fork & large spoon to take items. This was good. The food, not so much. Eggs were scrambled and very watery. Potato wedges were overcooked. Fruit had lots of tiny bugs on it. Bacon was good. Breads were excellent. We found two markets to walk to. To the left from the beach was a little longer and not as nice as the market to the right, a 3 minute walk. We picked up sandwiches, bottled water & snacks. We were supposed to have two twins, but there was only a king and a sofa bed. The beds were hard as rocks. No way could I sleep on it. Fortunately, they had big, thick toppers brought for both beds. This worked. Yay for my back. Other than that, all was wonderful. As an extra, there is a little square table that is see-through to the water below us. Fabulous. We loved just watching the fish below.
