Richard from United States
Luxury Overwater Bungalow
Stayed 3 nights in August 2016
Relaxing holiday
We stayed in a luxury overwater bungalow for a few nights and really enjoyed our time at this resort. The bungalow was perfect - well decorated with comfy bed and chairs, our own balcony and dock with a freshwater shower, and a beautiful view of the water and Tahiti in the background. The resort gardens and beach were also very nice and well maintained. We paid a lot for the bungalow so we had high expectations for our stay and the only thing that did not meet our expectations was the staff and check in experience. Our room was not ready at the check in time after we arrived early. We also had to keep checking back to see when the room was ready rather than them letting us know. By the time our room was ready, we had to wait even longer to get our bags delivered because the bell boys were "busy" delivering other bags. I would have expected a priority check in service given we were paying for one of the most expensive rooms. The staff were friendly but did not go out of their way to meet their customers needs. We had to ask several times to get chair cushions delivered to our room and each person replied they would be their soon but several hours past before we got them. In summary, it was a beautiful resort and I would recommend it to others with the caveat to not expect top service.

Comfortable bed but not the best location
Comfortable bed
The breakfast is pretty expensive, A$40. However similar with the Sofitel in Bora-Bora, the bed is first class. The lagoon is beautiful. Service is quite disappointing, our passports were held by one of the persons there for almost 2 hours whilst he were doing other things, and did not hand it in directly to us.
