8.4.Very Good.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    It seems that all or most rooms have oceanviews. Higher level and those near the center has the best views. However, rooms near the center will also hear music from entertainment that is going on. Beautiful grounds but too bad the swimming pool with “beach edges” seems very shallow. Can’t do laps but probably good for kids to play Buffet is very expensive but also extensive. Cappuccino machine didn’t work on both weekend stays I had there. Le Carre, their fine dining restaurant was great. We also took advantage of the half price cocktails before dinner. The setting was the Oceanside patio of the restaurant where we can enjoy the ambience of the sunset. Luckily, almost next door is a series of plazas including a grocery store. So we could walk there and get a few things like beer, salad and ingredients for sandwiches to have an “in room” picnic for some of the meals. It seems that they are still going through transition from being SPG to Sofitel. As I booked while it was still SPG, I received the entitled amenities but my stay is counted towards ale Club which is the loyalty program for Sofitel

    Bungalo was excellent. The rest of the property is very tired and in desparate need up updating. The pool was closed for 3 days of our stay . The hotel did not inform us of the fact until after check in. Food was sub par. Service was inconsistent.

    Baby location Good location. Nice pool area. Good curls around. needs updating. The featured restaurant was very overpriced with very average food. Drinks at the pool bar we're $20 a piece as well! We couldn't get the temperature down to be very comfortable in the room.

    Overwater bungalow was very nice. The staff was courteous and friendly, they gave us a late check out time due to our late flight leaving Tahiti.

    We are having a wonderful time. Front desk ,concierge , pool people and restaurant servers all have been great. I only wish you had more channels on Tv in English. Also it responds very slow.

    Property is very well groomed. Staff was always smiling and friendly. Resort is located on a white sand beach and has it's own sandy bottom lagoon pool. Grounds are very lush and tropical with sounds of exotic birds. Would come back again!
