I stayed at this beautiful resort thanks to my travel agent Noy S at Tahiti Legends. My beach bungalow with jacuzzi was lovely. The daily breakfasts were delicious. The very accommodating staff arranged for a visit to the Blue Lagoon. My post sun spa treatment was wonderful. Thank you Noy and Tahiti Legends!

Alizee is the best! I actually stayed at a Pension but the spa here is open to anyone on the island. Alizee was so kind in assisting me with my spa appointment through multiple emails. Upon arrival, I was graciously welcomed by her. I was able to choose from a beautiful tray of oils for massage. The Vichy shower and...

Kia Ora ~ Is one of those resorts that I personally feel is Paradise within itself. You can walk around the resort and feel you are totally alone and surrendered by tropical beauty from the water, to flora and fauna. The accommodations I totally enjoy staying in, is the pool villas. not far from beach, yet you have your own...

gorgeous property!! stunning water! but we were there in late August (Winter time in the southern hemisphere) but it was still hot. the bugs are bad so you don't want to open the windows, I recommend requesting a room with a functioning air conditioner.

Spent 3 days of scuba diving at this resort. The dive shop is right at the hotel which makes diving very practical. The staff and guides are very friendly and professional. The bungalows with sea view are excellent and include a jacuzzi facing the beach for sunset views.

It's a very nice hotel but you must know all the beach front bungalows have not been upgraded/renovated, ONLY the villa gardens and overwater bungalows. We booked a beach front duplex bungalow but when we arrived they said oh we "upgraded" you. No, they didn't do us a favor and upgraded us. They knew people would not be satisfied with...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in late November. The resort itself is very nice and well taken care of. We stayed in a garden bungalow which was very nice - spacious, comfortable, modern. The bungalow had a private outdoor pool and seating area with an outdoor shower and bathtub too. There is only one restaurant on...

Let's start with the positive side: Xavier, Willy and the smiling black lady from the restaurant are really kind, cool and helpful. Facilities are beautiful. And here is what i did not like: Some people in the reception area are snobbish and unhelpful. When I arrived, I was treated separately from other guests, bacuse I was coming through booking.com. They...

This was a very nice resort at a good location with a nice beach. Surprisingly, we rarely saw anyone out on the beach or snorkeling in the lagoon. The food was hit-or-miss for us. We are not big on seafood or raw beef so that made the Polynesian buffet less desirable. Breakfast was the same every day. They cook eggs...

I reserved a big bungalow for three on the beach about two months before my trip but on arrival, there were no beach bungalows available. They said ours was under construction but no one bothered to tell us until we arrived. They "upgraded" us to a garden bungalow which while it was lovely and had a small private pool, the...
