We really enjoyed our dinner here. Nice little bar with big portion sizes. The burgers are YUM! We only drank Hinano Gold here, and it was delicious!

Had a nice time here. The bar is attached to the Manava Suite Resort, and makes excellent drinks.

The mojitos were superb, as were a few other drinks like the Palermo..

We didn't see any wines on the menu, though they might have gphad a separate menu for that.

Service was spotty. They mostly stand around talking amongst themselves, but walking up to the bar works...

Burgers, Hinano beer, mixed drinks, comfy couch-style seating, and cool temperatures are perfect after a day at the Infinity pool.

to the manager.

1st of all, thanks for your answering and try to b clear.
so i want to corporate with it to improve , for bar itself and customer.

no one order in that time, only we family was there.
we have to b waiting 10min after order.
and wats happen? caucasian group come, he greet to them very closely,
and he immediately bring the beer.

im sorry to say it, dear manager, ur attitude is absolutely wrong.
if some customer say complain something,
ur 1st action is not to try to excuse with selfish imagine the situation,
but try to understand wat they r .

ur attitude is very rude to me.
im not stupid and well guess if some staff is busy.

When we Asian stay in bar and call the bartender to ask the order,
He said wait a moment , and never come.
after for a while, the Caucasian come and talk to him by French,
he talk for a while to them, so I ask him to order again , but he ignore and
ask order to Caucasian first .

so, if you are Asian, NEVER use this bar.

Ia orana,
We are very concerned by your comment and I would like to be clear on some points.
First of all, as our bar staff is mainly Tahitian and is so partially Asian, I do not understand the racial discrimination.
Then, our bartender might have been busy before to take your order and would have serve you as the order came in.
This is obviously no commercial at all to have any discrimination against anybody and, in this particular case, against Asian who are about 40% of our foreign customers.
I would like to present you our sincere apologies and want you to be sure there was certainly a misunderstanding but not any discrimination.
All our departments would be very happy to welcome you again any time soon.
