Reviews for Royal Huahine
We have been to Royal Huahine for a week end. the resort is son the main island but lost in the forest so you can only reach it by boat. We arrived around 3pm and had nothing to eat for lunch so we asked for something. We were told that everything was closed and we could eat for diner from 6pm. As we insist a bit We were offered some bread and butter. Unfortunately the butter was completely off so we end up eating plain toast. Resort is quite old and for the same price you can probably find better on the island. No more free boat after 5pm so If you plan to stay on the main island for diner, you will have to pay to come back to the resort.

The Royal Huahine was comfortable, clean, and very romantic. We'd wake up by diving off the hand rail into the South Pacific even during a rain shower. Giant sailboats cruise in the channel 1/4 mile away. The daily island cruise in the outrigger is a must. If you can run a outboard, you can rent you own to drive around the island of Huahine. I will look forward to going back.
We LOVED our time at Royal Huahine. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the food was delicious, and they even had some great free activities for their guests, like a Tahitian dance show and teaching us how to make a flower crown (which I wore at the Tahitian dance show the next night). The overwater bungalows were perfect, with a great shaded patio and an outdoor shower. Our "mama" while we were there was Minu, and she was so sweet and helpful. We will definitely be coming back again!

I'll make this brief, so you can get the details from other reviews, but this resort was wonderful. Truly postcard perfect and lovely staff. We planned to stay 2 nights, but only had one. I would say it's great for a short stay of 2 or 3 days, but you might feel isolated unless that's what you came for. We started here before going to a fancier resort in Moorea, and had it been reversed, we may have been disappointed in the room. It's definitely spacious and you can't beat the view, but it's a solid 3 stars in needing some freshening up. If that kind of thing won't bother you, then don't hesitate to book. Tip: Buy some breakfast and lunch goodies at the supermarket across the street before you get on the boat. We kayaked out to the raft and had my favorite lunch ever of simple baguette, prosciutto and cheese! And I know some people need WiFi for work, etc, but please don't downgrade this isolated paradise for Internet prices! We much enjoyed not having the option and found plenty other activities to do instead!

The plane lands, you take a short trip to the pier, then a short boat ride to the resort. It is not accessible by land and it shows. While you may not have everything perfectly done, one must remember there are no roads to this place but that is what makes it more like paradise. The over water bungalow was great and allowed quick access to the water. There were dolphins and turtles swimming by and the snorkeling was pretty good. Dinner and breakfast were basic and good and then you could take the boat shuttle to town. The town was very authentic Polynesian. Overall, I would go back to this place in a heartbeat! If you are looking for nightlife, pampering, etc. you should look elsewhere.
