The pros: nice pool, walk to town, huge private bungalow rooms, very good restaurant (better than Hilton Moorea), most authentic French Polynesian experience we saw in two weeks of traveling The cons: no English language TV stations -- all in French (not even CNN!), no free water, no free internet, no free bug spray, SOFT big but lumpy beds, noise...

This little gem has been a well-kept secret on the Pacific Ocean. We didn't stay at the hotel, which comprises separate thatched bungalows, but we used the resort facility for a day. (We were on a cruise and were in port from 9 to 5 pm.) it was a short walk along the shore from the place the free shuttle... More

We stayed for two nights as a last stop on our honeymoon, it was our least favourite. While the hotel grounds are beautiful and the beach and pool area are nice, the rooms are disappointing. Our room was musky smelling and there was a spot of something on the floor that looked like blood. The beds were lumpy and the... More

The Accomodations I had was a bungalow on the lake. They were incredible for the price. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. If you get a chance to visit Huahine in the French Polynesia it is a great place to stay.

Hotel Maitai Lapita is a wonderful hotel on a secluded non-touristy island. The staff are incredibly warm and friendly like the rest of the people of Huahine. The hotel is modern and very well kept. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The pool and adjacent beach have an amazing view of the lagoon. The view of the sun setting... More

We stayed at the Lapita Village 2 nights in January 2016 and we had a Garden View bungalow. Bungalow had a very good size, was clean and well maintained.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A boundless tropical garden, the secret island of Huahine is a natural sanctuary with many archaeological wonders and other landmarks of its rich Polynesian culture and history. Set on a white sand beach, the Hotel Maitai Lapita Village is composed of thirty bungalows, half of them set around a natural spring pond covered with water lilies. The restaurant, bar and pool face the lagoon and a magnificent white sand beach that borders the crystal clear lagoon. The sunsets here are spectacular and offer a panoramic view of the three other Leeward Islands: Raiatea, Tahaa and Bora-Bora. Conveniently located at the entrance of Fare, the island's main village, The Maitai Lapita Village is emblematic of the mix of nature and culture that is unique to the enchanting island of Huahine. Here you will discover luxuriant vegetation, private bays and inlets, heavenly motus, but also a rich cultural and historical heritage. This charming hotel village naturally blends into its environment as it combines local traditional materials and modern recycled ones. The "Omai" restaurant offers delectable dishes for all tastes using many local fruits and vegetables and of course fresh fish. The hotel's architecture draws inspiration from the great sailing canoes of the islands ancestors, the Lapita people, and the saga of their migration through the Pacific Islands. Archaeological excavations were undertaken on the very site of the hotel and have contributed greatly to our knowledge of the Lapita people and the way they lived. Many ancient artifacts, some over 1000 years old, were recovered and some are on display in the hotel's own museum gallery, including hooks, domestic tools, ornamental pendants, etc. On the island of Huahine, also called "memory island," many monuments from the pre-European era can easily be visited: open air temples (marae), ancient lake dwelling villages, a great attraction to do with a tour guide. These well preserved sites are among the largest in French Polynesia. ... more   less
