The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are sparse and in need of upgrades. ”
For the money it was good. However a distance to downtown. If you rent a car have a good map., compass, and or GPS. The maps given by rental company and hotel not very correct. And, street names are very hard to find if there are any to be found. Reception desk was at RT hotel very nice and helpful.

Not a place to sleep in”
The room was not a problem, comfortable and adequate. The restaurant nice. It was the roosters that run wild that totally spoil this place. Crowing from 3am onwards and often right outside the window where you are sleeping.(or trying to) With having to work all day there was no time for an afternoon sleep to get over the nights being kept awake. ;o(

We saw in previous reviews that the hotel was dated and that is absolutely true but we needed a room for the day as our flight didn't leave until 11pm. The room was a good value for that purpose. I wouldn't have wanted to stay for the night.

Great for relaxation, not so much for sightseeing”
This is an excellent, reasonably-priced hotel for relaxing in the sun. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. It's far enough outside Papeete, however, to make shopping and touring difficult unless you have a car. Just be aware that there is nothing around the hotel for the tourist.

Great location - only if you have a car”
I read a lot of reviews of the Royal Tahitien before I booked, and I booked it mostly because of its location. And if we had a car, it would have gotten an excellent rating. A taxi to the hotel from either airport or downtown is $25 - $30. The buses are quite comfortable, but do not run regularly - AND STOP RUNNING AT NOON ON SATURDAYS, AND DO NOT RUN ON SUNDAYS AT ALL. The hotel is older, but they have remodeled the interiors of the rooms. Our room was recently painted, new wallpaper, furniture and lamps. The floors in all the rooms were nicely tiled. However, even though the lamps were plentiful, they were not well located, and since the nightstands at the bed are attached to the headboard and are very low, it was difficult to read in bed. The bathroom could use new faucets - and the caulking around the tub was not done well - but it was clean. Many of the reviews referenced a musty smell in the room - which is quite common in tropical areas. We opened the slider and the front door of the room, and in 10 minutes, the smell was completely gone. The grounds are beautiful, all of the rooms face the garden, not the water. The pool is tiny, but very nice. Some of the reviews referenced trash on the beach - the hotel is right opposite the opening of the harbor which leads to the yacht club and the tide brings all of the debris directly to the beach in front of the restaurant area. The beach is quite narrow with a sharp dropoff and not suitable for swimming or wading, but it is lovely to sit on the restaurant patio and enjoy the view. (If I were the manager, I would send someone out every day to pick up the trash - a 5 minute job.) The restaurant is quite pricey - $70 for two fish burgers and two beers - the cheapest thing on the menu is $25 (burgers). They come with a raft of delicious french fries. The hotel staff is friendly and very accommodating - reception attempted to rent us a car from 3 different agencies, but last minute availability and or p

About as good as a 1970's US motel”
Nice restaurant facing the ocean, can't think of two more nice things to say
Up to the standards of a 1970's US motel. Two bath towels provided for 2 adults, no face towels, no wash cloths, only the 2 bath towels. Hair dryer not included, had to obtain from front desk, then it quit working. No free wi-fi, but they are happy to sell you a card to connect with a local commercial service. Cold, tile floors throughout, but no slippers, no robes. Long way to town and absolutely no commerce anywhere walking distance from hotel.
