We stayed here on the way back home after finishing our holiday in Moorea and were pleasantly surprised at how nice this place was. We stayed at Tahiti Nui hotel at the start of our holiday because it was close to the marina for the moorea ferry and we chose manava due to its proximity to the airport but I would probably stay here again at the start of our holiday as well. Our room wasnt the best room at the hotel because it faced the main road and there were lots of loud motorbikes and scooters speeding past the hotel at night making it challenging to catch some sleep but you cannot fault the location of the hotel bar and pool. It overlooks the island of moorea and the view was amazing. My wife and i had some great cocktails at the bar. The cocktails here were surprisingly more expensive (1800 xpf) than the Hilton at moorea where we stayed but they were made well. The hotel pool is an infinity pool with access to the bar which is a nice touch. There was a nice truck shop across the road from the hotel as well which was great for an inexpensive dinner (steak and chips) I would recommend this hotel for anyone on their way to or from bora bora, moorea or other surrounding islands.

My wife and I stayed at the Manava on the first and last night of our Tahiti vacation, with Moorea our ultimate destination. Arriving at 11pm the first night, straight off a flight and very hungry (it was 7pm Australian time), we were pleased to find the restaurant still open till 12 pm and had a wonderful and well-priced meal with prompt and friendly service despite the hour. Our room was spacious, clean and well-appointed. We thought of going for a swim in the pool, advertised as open 24 hours, but the lighting around the pool area is very poor and we didn't feel safe doing so, opting instead for a dip in the large bath in the room. Check-in and check-out on Day 1 was efficient. On our return to the resort, we had more time to take advantage of facilities. Our room on this occasion was very close to the pool, but sadly stank of stale cigarette smoke. A visit to the front desk resulted in housekeeping being sent to rectify the situation, apparently with magic spray, but this did little to mask the smell. As we were only there one night, we opted to accept the situation, spending most of our time in the beautiful pool with its spectacular views or on the verandah outside the room. There was little to do in the room anyway, as the TV channels were all local and only had French language and no subtitles - cable channels would have been useful. Our room on this occasion also had an internal door linked to the next room, and unfortunately this was not very soundproof, so we could hear the activities of those next door.

Our general impression of the Manava was that it was a nice place to pass through, an oasis for travellers, but we couldn't imagine spending any length of time there.

Room Tip: If it smells like smoke, ask for a room change rather than a housekeeping solution

The resort is new and modern. Comfortable bed and nice bathroom. We stayed there only for a couple of hours after arriving in Papeete and early morning flight to Moorea the following day. It is a pretty nice resort to stay if you're just transiting. But nothing much to do if you plan to stay for 3days. The resort has one of the biggest infinity pool in Tahiti and it's beautiful. The best thing about this resort is that it has free wifi (even though only in the lobby). It's a big plus plus plus! Since internet in whole French Poly has to be purchased.

Room Tip: Lagoon rooms offer a nice view.

We were highly impressed with this hotel. We didn't expect that much prior to our stay (we arrived at around 11:00 pm, checking out the very next morning to our next island). We stayed on the 2nd floor facing the lagoon. The view was amazing! The pool has an infinity pool overlooking the lagoon which is facing the island of Moorea (our next stop). The rooms were decorated very nicely, breakfast was delicious, and the staff was very courteous. If your travel plans require and overnight stay in Tahiti, this hotel is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Get a room on at least the 2nd floor directly facing the lagoon.

This is a very nice hotel. Our garden view room was comfy and clean. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay. The infinity pool is wonderful,but there are only 3-4 umbrellas and occasionally they run out of beach towels. Although we did not have much time to watch TV,the fact that all 10 TV channels were in French was odd since 40% of the visitors to French Polynesia are Americans and with other English speaking tourists, the need for an English channel must be obvious.
The main problem we faced was the public bus to and from Manava. I believe the front office does not want to give much,accurate information on this, in favor of their shuttle service. Unfortunately there are only 3 hotel shuttles (8:00/11:00/14:00) to Papeete per day and costs 2600 francs round trip for a couple. Also there is no shuttle service to FAAA Airport(local regulations favor taxis?). The public bus costs 400 one way per couple and is a more colorful way of travelling with natives. Here is our experience:

Before leaving the airport, write MANAVA SUITE RESORT, PK 10.8 on a sheet of paper to show to the bus driver. Exit the airport, walk through the parking lot towards the road above. Look back for the large sign of the FAAA Int'l Airport above the terminal building. Take the 2 flights of stairs right across the sign up to the road. Immediately to your right,there is a bus stop with no markings of any kind. Wait there for a bus coming from left (Papeete direction). Wave at the bus and show the paper with Manava name to the driver to make sure he knows where you'll get off (Also if it is not the right bus-which I doubt- he can let you know). Sit close to the driver. You can also watch for the landmarks on the right side. Intercontinental about 3 minutes after FAAA, Big Carefour Store 5 min.s, Manava 8 minutes(Naturally times can change depending on the traffic). There is a traffic sign indicating that you are entering the City of Punaauia(where Manava is located) and a traffic circle before the hotel, which is on the right. The driver did point the hotel out to us and people are real helpful if you mention Manava to them.

Coming from Papeete, there is a place where buses going in the west/south direction start on the "Rue du Marechal Foch" behind (North) of the big "Public Market". Show your hotel name to the driver and ask if it goes there. You pay while getting on the bus. The trip takes about 20 minutes.

From Manava to the city, when we asked front desk about the bus stop, we were told that there is none and you can stop the bus anywhere, just wave. We went out and stood on the road in front of the hotel,after 20 minutes no buses and it started to rain heavily. In the mean time we saw 2 buses that came from south (right side as you come out from the hotel) but turned right at the fork about 60-70 meters from the hotel. It became obvious that we were supposed to wait before the fork! We verified this with the front desk later on and asked why that information was not given to us when we asked about the bus stop location earlier. The answer was that they do always mention it!!! They also say that the bus service is unreliable, normally it is every 20 minutes or so but sometimes none shows up or come very late. There may be truth in this and I would not try the bus if I am in a hurry or have much luggage. That is why on the day of departure, we arranged for a taxi at 6AM(cost higher before 6AM). it cost 1900 francs to the airport (1000 for pick up,130 per kilometer,100 franks for each piece of luggage that goes into trunk). We had 2 suite cases, so the bill was 1000+5km x130+200= 1850 francs. the driver asked for 1900 which was very close. This info is posted inside the cab. There is no taximeter in the taxi. 5 km I used is from the travel book.

Going from Manava to Papeete (which I did not do, since while waiting the bus at the wrong location under the rain, a very nice Frenchman stopped and offered to take us to Papeete) should be easy, but if someone who actually does it (I understand that the last bus stop is in downtown Papeete) writes about the experience it should be helpful.
