Our Opinion:

With well-appointed and secluded rooms, plenty of activities for adults and children and some incredible views, this hotel will provide a perfect romantic getaway. It takes very little time to get to the heart of the action in Papeete, but you might find that you don’t want to leave this tropical paradise.
