Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by monnibonni Intercontinental Papeete French Polynesia
After staying at Moorea we were not thrilled with hotel at all. It is old and needs to be updated. Rooms are ok but few bungalows over the water and the water was very mucky and dirty looking. In Moorea the water was crystal clear. No one seemed to help with finding us activities to do or telling us what there was to do at the hotel. Was very disappointed staying here and recommend bypassing Papeete Intercontinental if can. Restaurant was also not very nice and food was expensive and not that great! The only good thing was the Bell Man dressed like a Polynesian Guy!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tomok poor service at restaurant
no spoon for my soup. and she tried to serve red wine although i asked white wine after long waiting(she didn't take memo properly and asked me if i ordered white wine or red wine. i told her white. after 15 mins, red wine came).
another thing is bell captain.
I wanted to ask baggage assistance on my arrival, as i was bringing large 2 baggage. No one was at the desk for a long time(30mins in total) and i had to ask reception staff to bring them to my room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coconuts Nice room with beautiful view
The room was nice with a terrific view of the water. The landscape was beautiful and lush. The bartender at the Lotus poolside bar, Iris, was great and made some wonderful drinks. Just remember, you are in Tahiti, so it cannot be that bad. However, the property restaurants were very expensive. Unless you get a ride somewhere nothing else was around. We went with a group, so checking out and getting a shuttle to airport was very chaotic. There was a long line of guests waiting to check-out but there was only one employee at the front desk and he was a trainee. It took about 45 minutes for the luggage handlers to pick up our luggage from our room even though we were told 4 times that the luggage was all ready picked up and was on the next cart.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbarapup Overall great experience
We loved the hotel. Our room was clean, comfortable and the bed was luxurious. We spent most of the time at the pool, and it was beautiful, serene and relaxing. The food was good. Our only issue was with the billing in that I had prepaid and was charged a second time. I didn't realize it until we returned home, but they are taking care of it. Highly recommend this hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beachbum2 Pleasant surprise
When we booked this resort, it was merely meant as a layover to sleep of the jet lag while on our way to Moorea and Bora Bora.
What a pleasant surprise it was to have such a wonderful room overlooking Moorea. We were fortunate enough to get an upgrade thru the ambassador program into a panoramic view room #289 "wow"
All the staff from Patrick in the main restaurant to Iris at the swim up bar made us feel so welcome that we were sad to leave. Even though ocean swimming was limited...all if the pools were just like swimming in the ocean with there sandy bottoms and gorgeous views.
My wife and I travel extensively and this was one of the nicest resorts we've had the pleasure of staying at.
On a final note...although the food is somewhat expensive, as it seems to be all over the South Pacific...the meals were fantastic, with incredible presentation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mac18 In an absolutely gorgeous setting, this resort is run down.
Definitely NOT a luxury experience for more than $450 USD per night! The grounds are lovely, the pools and lagoonarium are beautiful, but the corridors and rooms desperately need upgrading. There is no storage space in the room we had - simply a single set of shelves and a narrow space to hang some clothes, not sufficient for two of us. Also, there was only one desk chair in the room, and it took three phone calls to get staff to bring one other chair! These chairs, AND the ones on the deck, were also terribly uncomfortable. The management needs to work with staff in order to have a quicker response when the restroom closest to the restaurant runs out of both toilet paper and paper towels - nothing done within 45 minutes! The elevator is as beat up as a freight elevator - overall, the place is really run down, and I would not recommend it as a luxury hotel for anyone to stay.
