We booked this hotel through an internet travel agency and had requested a mountain view room given the TripAdvisor reviews about noise in the rooms facing the street. To our amazement, we were given the Executive Suite which had two bedrooms (one king and one queen), three bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room, living room, 2 televisions and a very large balcony facing the mountain on one of the upper floors. It was simply amazing and, of course, very quiet. What a wonderful treat if you are splurging!! The hotel is very modern, sleek and clean. One bathroom had a tub while the other had a shower. We were there in the "rainy season", so the hotel itself did not appear to be too busy. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The staff was pleasant and friendly and our check-in late at night was efficient.
We didn't have dinner at the restaurant, but we did have breakfast one morning. It was quite good, but pricey which we found was common in most Polynesian hotels. The location is great if you are taking the ferry as it is a quick 4-block walk to the dock. We enjoyed walking around the town and wished we had had an extra day to see a little more and soak in the pool.
For a less expensive dinner, try "les roulettes", the food trucks that appear evenings on the dock next to the ferry. The food trucks set up tables and serve some very good stir fry meals that are more reasonably priced than the restaurants. After dinner you can sit in the small park/bandstand area and watch families relaxing with the children after dinner.
