5.1 Okay
Pros: It was in Tahiti. There was a good restaurant on site
Cons: When we opened the sliding doors, the ceiling tiles bounced with the wind. Our bags weren't brought to our room. We got there before checking time and getting a drink was a challenge as we didn't want to wade up to the bar in the pool in our street clothes. We were only staying there twelve hours between flights

Les 4k - Faaa - Bedroom
8.9 Excellent (24 reviews)
Farehau - Faaa - Bedroom
8.1 Excellent (165 reviews)
9.7 Excellent
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff very helpful and polite (unlike some places in Tahiti). As they were over booked, they upgraded to Jr. Suite, which was nice as some places would just send you away. Food prices quite similar to regular restaurants in town (all still expensive). Enjoyed both dance shows. Nice pool, and love the black sand beach.
Cons: I'd like paying... but it was very good value compared to other options in Papeete.
Hotel Tahiti Nui - Papeete - Pool
7.6 Good (441 reviews)
8.0 Excellent
Pros: 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
Cons: Mountain view and side rooms are quiet. Rooms facing street have traffic noise all night long....
6.8 Good
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was good. Short walk to market and the food trucks in the evening. Room was clean.
Cons: Very basic. The bed was a double & we are used to queens. No tissues. They have a gadget that shuts off all electricity to the room when you leave, so if you're gone a few hours the room will be hot again. Just one towel per guest. All channels on the TV are in French.
6.0 Good
Pros: Simple but Friendly. Could use some updating
Cons: Needs updating
6.2 Good
Pros: 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.

8.5 Excellent
Pros: I strayed here with my husband and two kids ages 3 and 7. It was clean and up to date. U can walk to and from the airport and the market. It's about $20 can ride into town.
Cons: Clean and up to date
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, stylish and functional. The room is of a good size, and the bathroom has a shower curtain. Had a good view over Moorea. Wifi was free.
Cons: The cable channels are all in French. There needs to be some English channels. The path up to the hotel is too steep and the concrete is rough. This needs to be smoothed. There are also a lot of steps to pull your suitcase over. There is no soap, just shower gel. There needs to be a proper bar of soap. The aircon tends to blow over the bed so you may need to shut off the aircon in the night.
4.0 Okay
Pros: The staff were helpful. Good location.
Cons: The place was tough to find. No signs and in pitch black. Which is odd because you can see it plain as day in front of you, but you can't find the way in. The driveway wasn't lit and the front porch was covered in dog shit. The rooms are sparse, no blankets and the sheets were dirty. Breakfast was a bit of a joke. Canned fruit and cornflakes.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Most staff were great, going the extra mile, rooms are huge and well appointed.
Cons: Night staff not so good. Wi-Fi was out and they refused to look into it. Towels are like sand paper and first room tv didn't work and no tolist paper dispenser. Little things that make it miss its apparent aim of being top notch. Area is a little sketch, fine if you have a car. If not then for women or cautious people I would stay elsewhere.
4.0 Okay

3.7 Mediocre
Pros: staff tried
Cons: mosquito breeding ground, dilapidated, "pool" is a joke, far from anything, no beach, no internet (charge extra - it doesn't work) terrible value for money. Next to hospital, so dreary guests want to talk about their son dying or their cancer diagnosis.
