Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The Highlight of our Trip
We ended up in Tahiti at the end of an Oceania cruise. Since it was my birthday the day of arrival we stayed 3 nights at the "Intercontinental Tahiti Resort and Spa". Thankfully, after a bad morning rainstorm on our arrival the weather improved and became very pleasant for the balance of our stay. The grounds were memorable---the infinity pools, "beach" environment next to the pools, the captive lagoon pool with colorful fish, swim/walkup bar---what's not to like? Most of all the le Lotus restaurant where we took all of our evening meals and one lunch (we are San Francisco based foodies and have eaten at many fine restaurants in many places over 4 decades)was terrific. Sad to say, the "main" restaurant in the "main" building didn't measure up. In short, a very memorable stay---can't think of a more spectacular setting when the sun co-operates.
Kudos to the GM who called down to get us into le Lotus on March 15, my birthday.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Clean with comfortable bed and pillows
It is clean with a great location. Close proximity from the airport. However, staff weren't as friendly. Buffet style choices weren't us great. Polynesian show I enjoyed but, be prepared to pay $100 per person including dinner buffet. I suggest to eat at Le Corque, loved the magnificent views and the selection of food entrees as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by canuckcruiser60 Better than expected
Stayed at the Intercontinental Tahiti Papeete after a cruise through the South Pacific.
As the reservation was done through the cruise company we were not sure what to expect.
When we arrived at the hotel it was beyond our expectations.
Idyllic setting on a beautiful island.
The pictures on the internet do not do it justice.
The concierge staff were exceptional. When there was a problem with our reservation it was handled quickly.
After this was corrected the chef concierge did everything he could to make our stay memorable. He answered all our questions and made recommendations for activities.
The staff were the other reason that this was memorable stay.
We will definitely return.
