We had concerns about a new management style, but found the staff and management even more accommodating and hospitable than previous visits. Small gestures-poolside nibbles, fruit juice on arrival and fruit bowl in the room was appreciated.

My wife and I were greeted at the resort as wholesomely and well as if we were the owners of the property. We were afforded a refreshing drink on arrival, and the staff were topnotch in handling any and all of our requests. All the staff, from the concierges, receptionists, wait staff, room attendants, concession operators, all greeted us with a welcoming smile and treated us like royalty

Diane N. Couples - 05/10/2019 AccorHotels review

We were greeted by a very friendly staff and assigned our room. When we arrived at our room, it wasn't quite what we were expecting. My husband was able to change our room to a room with a much better location. The resort is nice but needs to be updated. Decor is dated, color schemes, etc. Bathroom was ok, shower was fantastic! The breakfast buffet was very good. No complaints and the view of the lily pond was very pleasant. The beach restaurant was also very good. A bit expensive for a beach bar, but we are on Tahiti! Wait staff was wonderful. I was very disappointed to learn there was no fitness center. I ran the first day I was there, but I noticed there were quite a few stray dogs hanging around. I was afraid of getting bitten and elected not to run the rest of my days at the resort.

Ray A. Couples - 29/09/2019 AccorHotels review

It is a beautiful place and everyone was so very nice to us. One of the HIGH points of our time was the car service that we did with Phillip. He was wonderful and we were glad to hire him for a tour of the island. We had a fabulous time with him and I am so glad that he was there when we needed something to do? That made our trip and stay there perfect. I work for United Airlines and will diffidently recommend your hotel and Phillips car service. I did have a question though? I couldn't get a straight answer if this was our crew hotel or not because I noticed that my flight crew stayed there with us? Is there an airline employee discount for us? But anyway we had a fabulous time while there.

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

TheExpatO Couples - 24/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

We had a lovely time in (what I assume is) a large renovated room on the 5th floor. Sunset was lovely. Dinner at the Carré restaurant was great and the management was full of attention. Yes, breakfast and some services are expensive but matches the rest of Polynesian luxury resorts. Glad I didn't paid too much attention on the older negative reviews. I would recommend this place to friends Some suggestions: -keep the efforts and work on the sustainability initiatives -add little info signs for the trees and other plants in the park -build a central ramp to bring luggage in the lobby -offer early/late check out to Accor status holder -suggest/build paths to avoid the construction area in the street leading to the hotel

What a wonderful sharing of experience! We are delighted to have welcomed you to our corner of paradise! We do our best to make you live a real Polynesian experience. A unique experience. The teams are very touched by your comment and thank you very much. Mauruuru and we hope to see you soon

alansimonic Couples - 19/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Nice location and hotel - comfortable rooms. Swimming pool showing signs of aging, snorkelling off the beach was nice. Dined at all three restaurants and food was excellent. Was disappointed on that as we had used our free night vouchers - both my wife and I have cards - we had to check back in after the first night as they could not do it as one booking - were able to keep[ the same room which was nice.

Ia Ora Na, Thank you for the great review of our hotel ! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon.

Arrive T. Solo - 26/07/2019 AccorHotels review

My recent stay was excellent in all aspects with particular thanks to the Housekeeping and Food and Beverage Team. They always went above and beyond and were kind and courteous. The evening show on Friday was excellent. Special recognition to Liliana and Katy in Food and Beverage and also to Steve at the Bar. Teva the manager - excellent. Reception team and Housekeeping always warm and welcoming. My only issue would be as an English speaker, please ensure that at least one TV channel is in English. The only one available was CNN which worked abou 50% of the time. I am a luxury T. Agent - (AVA Wine Adventures - Virtuoso) so would like to see this for my guests when I book this Hotel but have no problem to recommend this property. Superb!

Annie C. Couples - 13/07/2019 AccorHotels review

We stayed in late June for 3 nights on our way out to Moorea. We really enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent - the staff were very helpful and friendly. The meal we had at Le Carre was fantastic - great food and great service. The newly renovated rooms are lovely and the grounds around the resort are wonderful and make for a very relaxing stay. Having a beach which is good for swimming and snorkeling is also a real bonus for this resort. There is a lovely pool at this resort, although we didn't use it as we prefer to swim in the sea. Another highlight for us, was being able to easily hire a car via the hotel to have a look around the island as there is so much more to see on the main island than just the centre of Papeete. The hotel is new to the Accor chain and is still figuring out the nuances of the various Accor memberships such as the Accor Advantage Plus for the Asia Pacific region, but we are sure that will change as they become more familiar with Accor. It was a wonderful stay - thank you to all the team, and we will most definitely be back.

Very pleasant stay; lovely big room overlooking the gardens and the beach. Pleasant staff, clean room, beautiful grounds. The little gift shop wasn’t open at all during our two day stay though, which was a pity. Our Le Accor Club membership didn’t get us any discounts or particular benefits (other than two slices of star fruit and two tiny slices of pineapple as a “welcome gift”) but that is a membership issue.

Brittany Solo - 03/06/2019 AccorHotels review

I stayed just for a short trip (meant to be 1 night, and extended it to a second night once I was there).. I thought the hotel was beautiful and very well maintained. I loved the attention to detail that was taken to be sure everything was in good working order and very clean. The bed was very, very comfortable, and I loved the balcony and view to the pool and ocean. The pool was incredible, and the food menus on site were fantastic. Food was great and unique and I felt was worth the prices charged. I loved the welcome reception with tea and a towel, and the lobby is very comfortable- I even stayed there for about an extra half hour after I was given access to my room, just because it's so pleasant there. I felt that the staff was fantastic and very helpful. English skills were excellent with everyone. I took the shuttle into town to visit the market and my driver was very kind, safe, and timely. I never had to wait or be inconvenienced at all by anything with this process. I also appreciated getting to add the half-day island tour service on my second day. Our tour guide was awesome, and again, I felt safe and comfortable with him as our driver and guide. This tour took me to all of the places I wanted to visit and was a great value. I was SO impressed by the option to extend late checkout until evening! This was an enormous benefit when I thought I would be flying out on a midnight flight. A last minute change to my flight plans meant I needed to stay a full second night and leave very early in the morning, and the hotel staff was wonderful at accommodating the change. The only areas that I felt needed improvement were: the bathrooms are a bit old, however very functional, and I appreciate the new sinks- it helps to make the rest not feel so outdated, but I could tell that these areas were the last to get a facelift on the property, however, a very minor issue for my general appreciation of the property. Also, I had dinner by the pool one night and it was a lovely setting with live music that i enjoyed very much, however, my service was extremely slow and I believe they forgot to place my dessert order with the kitchen (it took an hour to receive from the time I ordered it).. I understand that mistakes happen, but it would have been nice to be offered a discount on the dessert for making me wait so long to get it. One other last suggestion: when I arrived in the airport, I wasn't sure how to get to the hotel. The website seems to suggest an airport shuttle that the hotel provides, but I wasn't sure how to set it up. I ended up taking a taxi, which was fine, but I would've liked a little better guidance about the recommended method of getting from the airport to the hotel. That's all. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning to go to Tahiti, and if I come back, I will probably want to stay here again, unless I decide to visit other islands instead. Thank you for making my vacation so pleasant with your services.

We stayed twice in a three week period. The first room was older and needed maintenance, the second stay was upgraded and the room was very nice. The staff at all levels was exceptional. We had just come from the Sofital on Moor-ea and were very disappointed with their staff service level. Your group made our last vacation days very pleasant and memorable.
