Tahiti Village is a great place for a family or group of friends on a relaxed schedule to hang out. Firstly, the suites are very large. After I'd booked a two-bedroom one I realized it was bigger than my first house! Even with eight guests I think ~1,500 sq ft would be plenty of space to avoid each other. It being winter we didn't use the balcony or pool areas but these also looked inviting.
The complex is ~2 miles south of the strip. If you want to be within walking distance of the action this obviously isn't going to cut it, but if you want to retreat from The Strip once in a while then it is great. Most casinos have ample free parking in structures that can be accessed from behind the strip, avoiding most of the traffic (it took us 10 mins to reach and park at Mirage, towards the north end of the Strip.) If you don't bring a car then use the hotel shuttle which leaves every 30 mins. and drops off/picks up at New York New York and The Mirage. Pick-up was 5 mins late when we used it but I call that reasonable. A brochure claims that a few times a week the shuttle also goes to Freemont St, Town Sq, and Red Rock Canyon.
We didn't need much help from the staff but they were friendly. Although we booked it like any other hotel Tahiti Village is a timeshare and we were politely offered reduced price tickets to the Cirque show 'Ka' if only we'd sit through a sales presentation. I couldn't bring myself to do it but if you have a tolerance for that kind of thing, and/or a thin wallet, then you might try it.
Drawbacks? The rooms have king beds and queen sofa beds, which was fine for a family but might not suit every group of adults. The wifi was slow. Local dining options are poor; stay on the Strip for dinner or drive someplace. If you bring a car then know that parking right outside the apartment towers is limited. That said, I don't know why other reviewers whine about this. Maybe their legs atrophy after too much time at the tables? There is a huge, free structure on the south edge of the property that was a 3 min. walk from our apartment elevator. Finally, the decor is nice and smart enough for me, but the Tahiti theme doesn't bear too close inspection. But the same could be said about all of Vegas!
