“Great Location, Nice Beach View, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Fun Menu. Lots of Polynesian dishes, or french dishes with a healthy dollup of island inspiration. I loved all the creative ways that vanilla were used. Attached to the Hotel Mai Tai. Centrally located. It's not fancy, but its also not a truck stop. The view is beautiful. There's a lagoon here, and its shaded and always seems to be breezy. It's easy to get to if you are staying at the Hotel Intercontinental and easy to get to from the Tiare Market. I highly recommend.

“Maitai was a good bargain.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Great location, nice rooms, nice beach with sea kayaks, good service. Less expensive than some of the "fancier" places, but seemed every bit as nice to us.
