Reviews for InterContinental Resort Tahiti
Probably the best hotel on Tahiti. Certainly the best choice for a stopover between flights. Head and shoulders above the Le Meridien, which is a dump by comparison. Lovely grounds. Renovated rooms are modern but still obviously, wonderfully, Polynesian, which is a small miracle and must have taken some serious wrangling with the IHS mothership to keep them from getting neutered. Wifi is solid and skype-able. Try to get a room rate or package that includes breakfast. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Tahitian Sunday Brunch is a real feast (as it should be for the price) and attracts a nice mix of locals and hotel guests. Dinner in the casual restaurant (we didn't try Le Lotus) was creative and excellent, too. Food and drink pricing is as expected for Tahiti. My only complaint is that room rates have gotten a wee bit out of hand even when compared to other 4* Polynesian resorts. Previously, we would get a transit/day room here while waiting for the red-eye flight home, but they have priced that option out of consideration, so now we just drop off our luggage and enjoy a meal and drinks. We have had none of the issues that other reviewers mention.

Do check whether there's any building/maintenance work going on before you choose this hotel. I guess we were unlucky, but it was undergoing some pretty major renovations when we visited. Stayed for 3 nights, so didn't seem worth moving elsewhere. Food was unimaginative yet plentiful, service very patchy and some of the property rather run down. It's a popular choice for pre and post cruisers so can get very busy. Be warned - the mosquitoes here bite all day long, not just dawn and dusk, and they are completely evil. It would be good if guests could be warned of this before it's too late. There were no remedies available in the small hotel shop. On the upside, fantastic live salsa band one evening attracting a following of brilliant young people who could really dance!

Had a day at this hotel/resort prior to an international flight home. Very poor and expensive food. Room was run down and dirty. Our room was in between a playground and the band. I would have preferred being in an airplane seat.
The room and view was outstanding as was the pool and other amenities. Unfortunately it took 1.5 hours to check in as they were short staffed but the worst experience was being overcharged three times in the restaurants. Recommend you check your accounts here very carefully

My partner & I recently stayed at The Intercontinental for 2 nights prior to doing a Paul Gauguin Cruise. Really enjoyed our stay, the room was great, comfortable bed, beautiful view of Moorea. The lagoon pool areas just fantastic, among the best I've seen anywhere. Staff were excellent, food was very good. We would definitely return again. The only thing I could fault was the strict check-in/ check out times and having to join everybody else doing the same at the same time. Better to be more flexible & avoid guests having to wait around for ages, given the arrival & departure times of long flights to Tahiti.
