This is not a five star resort based on European or American standards.
Although it is beach front the location of the hotel leaves a little to be desired. It is some way from the Airport and there are quite strong rip tides.
The pool is a sand based lagoon and is very nice but save for this there are few other activities at the resort (we spent much of our time palying table tennis with worn out bats!).
The rooms are clean although I would recommend a junior suite with a large balcony. We were upgraded to a junior suite when the air conditioning leaked and made the room we were in unusable. To the credit of the hotel they dealt with the issue quickly and moved us with the minimum of fuss.
The food seems fine but expensive (as most things were in Tahiti). However, there are few other places to eat in the area save for a couple of cafes and a Chinese restaraunt which can be recommended.
One other thing, there are numerous stray dogs on the site and they quite often walk through the resort although it appear that they reside at the resort entrance.
All in all this was not up to what I expected.
