Tahiti was unfortunately under lockdown and confinement orders during our stay so we couldn’t visit anything. How glad are we that we chose the Intercontinental!!! Maybe it was the low season, maybe Covid but the feeling around the hotel was one of peace and quiet. We were able to be outside, use and lounge by the Infinity pools, walk the beautiful ground and enjoy the views of Moorea across the lagoon. A special thank you to the Tiare restaurant staff. They are the friendliest, most welcoming and most efficient team ever! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely do a repeat in the future
While the resort looks very nice the service and accommodations are terrible. No Wifi service anywhere, how does that happen in 2021? The hot tub was not working, no television stations in English and did not have smart TV's. The bartennder at the pool bar didn't know how to make any of the drinks and could not speak any English. The Director of the Hotel Arnaud Leveziel after complaining told us sorry there is nothing we can do. Strongly recommend you spend your money elsewhere as this resort and our stay was terrible.
Like many other people we stayed here for one night at the beginning of our trip (late arriving flight into Tahiti on United) and then just for a day (several hours really) at the end of our trip before heading home. First off, we made the mistake of leaving behind 2 items (one critical, health-related item) and one item of clothing, when we left for Moorea and the hotel was able to locate the more important item and return it to us when we got back to the hotel 2 weeks later. Thank goodness for the staff that found it, communicated with us from our hotel on Moorea, and was able to return the item safely. Mauruuruu noa! As for the hotel itself, the staff was wonderful and accomodating, save for one confusing issue on our last day when our luggage wasn't brought to the room. Apparently they don't do that for you if you have a day room? It was strange and confusing. Bar and restaurant staff were excellent, breakfast buffet yummy. As a tall person, I loved the shower in the room. A great rainfall showerhead set high up! Also the shampoo smells like a tropical flower garden and I wish I could have bought a bottle of it to take home. All in all, a safe clean place to stay, with good food and a nice little snorkeling lagoon. We only stayed in an ocean view room so I can't comment on the bungalows.…
Like many others, we stayed here one night / day after our flight landed before continuing on to other islands. The service was excellent, from the luggage handlers through the check-in process. The room was nice, if a little dated. Great view of Moorea from the private terrace. Standard in-room amenities (coffee & tea, iron, hair drier, safe, TV.) The resort itself was well-maintained. A nice pool area with a separate saltwater lagoon walled off from the ocean which contained fish and coral. My wife and I like to spend a lot of time in the ocean when in a location like Tahiti, and noted there was no real ocean access to be had. If I was staying more than a day I'd get bored pretty quickly. The food was expensive but of good quality. Breakfast buffet had a wide offering.
It seems that most people whose final destination is Bora Bora, Moorea, etc. are "forced" to stay in Tahiti due to arrival and departure times of flights. Being one of those people, we chose the Intercontinental due to its proximity to the airport. Our ocean view room was very nice with a view of Moorea. We had breakfast, lunch, and dinner and found the food to be very good. The property is spacious and has a lovely pool area but NO sandy beaches in this part of Tahiti. My biggest complaint is that the hotel was understaffed at our arrival at about 5am and there was a very long wait. We were all exhausted from the trip and would have appreciated a quick check in.
