Location of hotel in heart of Papette is convenient location. However I did not find the reception staff overly helpful when our Air France departure flight was cancelled on Friday, Sept 25 and did not fly out until Sunday Sept 27 at 3:00 am. Location of our room was on main avenue and very noisy. Also the sliding glass door to the balcony would not lock so they delivered a piece of wood to jam in the door frame. Whilst the room was large is was impersonal. the room and the hotel in general was very dark.
Rooms modern, clean and comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. Ideally situated to walk to center of town with Public Market etc. Also in walking distance to Ferry/Cruise Ship terminals - but not with suitcases due to street construction and heavy traffic Mountain view and side rooms are quiet. Rooms facing street have traffic noise all night long....
Aunque cercano al aeropuerto, es necesario subir bastantes escaleras para llegar al hotel, y muchas más para acceder a las habitaciones, pues no hay ascensor, lo cual resulta toda una proeza si llevas maletas. Las habitaciones son correctas limpias pero tienen cucaracahas.
Simple but Friendly. Could use some updating Needs updating
Not a bad choice when you need a Ferry the next day. Location is great but the air conditioning is noisy. The hallways and elevator is horribly HOT! Bed was comfortable but TV is all in French.
Perfect location if you are on Tahiti for 1-3 days. Close to the airport or ferry. Plus, the resort is absolutely beautiful. Truly magical.
The grounds were the best part of our experience. They were beautiful and well maintained. The different pools were a nice part of the experience also with the infinity pool ending at the ocean and the pool with the sand covered bottom and swim-up bar. Even though we were forewarned about the food and drink prices being very high, it was still a shock to see a mixed drink costing over $20. The food prices were high, but the portions are large enough that we were able to split a meal between us.
everything old needs upgraded
The views were breathtaking and the amenities top notch. The staff were warm and very helpful. Nothing really - but the costs of food and drinks was extremely high - paying for the view I guess.
Conveniently located to airport. Check in was at 2:00. We arrived at 11:00 from Bora Bora. Absolutely would not allow us to check in until 2:00. Gift shop was not open during any of the wait time. They gave us a voucher for a free 'cocktail' at the tiki bar. Bar said juice only.
The room was very nice and had comfortable beds, quiet setting, and nice wash room. This is a tired hotel; the grounds and common areas were at one time (maybe 1960's) nice. Now its old and worn out - not what I expected for the money.

Great location - near the airport and to town. Liked the shuttle service into town. Super helpful staff at the front desk and in activities area. Beautiful grounds, vistas, and settings for viewing sunsets. Some staff in the restaurant could be a little more service oriented.
The pools were awesome! One pool was half swimming pool / half ocean lagoon with fish where you could snorkel and the other swimming pool was a sand-bottom infinity pool looking out onto the ocean. AMAZING! The cleaning staff and concierge were super nice The check-in staff and food staff were not as friendly. They were pleasant but did not make us feel as welcome as the concierge and cleaning staff.
Beautiful, clean, classy, good staff, and excellent accommodation. No.
Enchanting trip to exotic Tahiti. Adventuresome journey in Australia.
absolutely gorgeous. Fresh water pool and a natural pond with beautiful fish that you could swim with.
I was at Farehau for one night following along travel day. The staff at Farehau picked me up at the airport ( a real bonus) and took me to their home. The house was very comfortable, set high on a hill overlooking the city and water. My room was nice and cool and very clean. In the morning there was breakfast waiting in the kitchen and it was yummy. Their was a huge deck with comfortable chairs. The house is in a residential neighborhood that is overrun with roosters. So they were a bit loud but that didn't really bother me...I used earplugs and sandwiched my head between pillows. Being a tropical island I expect there to be many new sounds especially form the resident fauna!
