Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gonza2013 Comfortable room but very bad service.
We stayed for one night to catch our flight early next morning.
The room was comfortable but the TV was not working. We had a polinesian gift included that was forgotten!
We asked for a wakeup call at 400 AM but the reception made a mistake and woke us up at 2:00 AM. Then they forgot the one at 4:00 AM.
We had a buffet breakfast included in our package which I was told was no problem due to the early checkout and could order it to the lobby or room service.
We ordered breakfast (half an hour in advance) and when we came to the loby nothing was ready. Finally we got a bad coffe with a toast and butter (nothing else).
When I complained to the reception about the bad service and told them I was not expecting this from a 5 star hotel. The man at the reception answered that it was a 4 star hotel, not five, and that was the reason for a "not so good service". With this answer I considered the discussion was a waste of time. Checked out and left!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daytime Room noise
We stayed 2 nights pre Paul Gauguin cruise and 1 night post cruise.
Our first room #325 was a very nice room, however, the band that started at 5.30pm was extremely disturbing. The noise and thrumming reverberated up to our 3rd floor room to the extent that we couldn't even hear ourselves think INSIDE the room - the verandah was totally useless as the noise was even worse there. Couldn't even sit outside to enjoy a leisurely drink!
Thank goodness we upgraded after our cruise to an overwater bungalow - very nice, clean, quiet and comfortable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by swim51 Good for overnight flight layovers
This was a good place to stay overnight till our next flight in the morning. It was a nice place, nothing too special (at least compared to our other hotel in Tahaa). The Air conditioning system in the room didn't work too well, but with some effort to increase the airflow it was OK. The food was much nicer than I expected for a big resort. I would stay there again if my flight schedule required it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TahitiZ Beautiful Resort and Friendly Staff
We arrived at the Intercontinental Tahiti late on a Saturday night after arriving from Honolulu. We checked right in and the staff at the front desk could not have been more friendly. We were offered a drink of fresh fruit juice while we were checking in. My reservation was for a Panoramic View Room on a Buy One Get One Ambassador Club Certificate. We were upgraded to a Lotus OTW Bungalow. Our room was beautiful and appeared newly remodeled and very clean. The room consisted of a sitting area with desk and refrigerator. There was a separate area with a King Size bed and a television that pivoted between the two rooms. The room had lots of windows to enjoy the beautiful view. There was a deck with two lounge chairs and we were able to step down into the water right from our platform. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset right from our deck. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was quite large with a large tub, separate shower and an enclosed toilet. We ate dinner at the Lotus Restaurant, which we really enjoyed. The grounds of this hotel are beautiful. There is an adult pool with a swim-up bar which is very nice. There is also a family pool and a lagoonarium. We witnessed quite a few workers maintaining the grounds. I have only great things to say about this hotel. We enjoyed our stay and hope that we can get back there one day soon. Thank you, IC Tahiti for making our 25th anniversary celebration extra special!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stockgirl Great stay for our last day in Tahiti
We got a room here at the intercontinental since we had returned from outer islands and had 8 hours to kill. There were no day rooms available so we had a room with a balcony overlooking the pool bar.
The grounds and views from this resort are gorgeous. The room was really nice and clean. We really enjoyed the afternoon at the pool bar. Couldn't get a reservation at the Lotus restaurant so not sure how the food was there. Had dinner in the main restaurant, ordered ala'carte and was really disappointed in the food. Overall the resort is really nice and I would stay there again.

by PeterCNZ 3 nights at Intercontinental Tahiti
Probably the best check in experience ever for us. The young lady at reception just made it all so easy. We stayed in one of the panoramic view rooms which was absolutely fine.
Many people just flit through the ICH Tahiti on the way to somewhere else but Tahiti and Papeete are well worth a longer visit. Just down the road from the ICH is a Carrefour supermarket where you can treat yourself to range of wonderful French cheese, meats, olives, wine and other delicacies at good prices (compared to back home NZ).
Great gym that we only used once.
Overall ICH Tahiti staff and facility were great - under-appreciated by many travellers possibly.
