We stayed at Manava Beach for three nights shortly after new year. We had three very enjoyable and relaxed days at the resort. I was a bit unsure about how to get there from the ferry terminal, but for a paltry 300CFP we found you can take a public bus that drops you right out the front of the hotel. From there staff were very helpful and took our bags to our garden view room, which was just perfect for us. Very quiet and pleasant looking out over the garden and away from little kids too. The pool and small beach are just great for relaxing and the bar and restaurant also provide everything you could want. Snorkeling from the beach is a bit ordinary... at least compared to our experiences at Bora Bora. But we did enjoy kayaking from the resort. The pool itself was long enough to do laps, and wasn't too busy most of the time (mainly because of rain). Lots of young families at this resort, so be prepared for kids running around a bit. Internet was a bit slow and on and off, but hey who wants to spend all their time on their devices? Shops for additional supplies are just 5 mins down the road. Transfer back to the ferry by taxi was 2500CFP. Overall, an enjoyable stay.

Really nice hotel. Prices are a bit expensive but standard pricing for hotels Tahiti. Staff were really AMAZING. I lost my engagement ring and a driver in the scuba school came in between excursions and found it for me (thank the lord).

The overwater bungalow is great for those who like snorkelling. Some bungalows have better areas than others.

Walking distance to the shops.

we stayed at the hotel for 8 nights, room was clean, staff members were friendly and helpful, breakfast was great, New Year Eve Gala Dinner was amazing.
Check in and check out were very slow, (check out took us 35 minutes from the time she started the process, saying the computers are down).
The wifi was very poor at all the hotel areas and none at the rooms!!! That was very disappointing!!! You should sort out this problem as many guest members were complaining about it. we are working during our holidays too and it made it very difficult at times to communicate.
I rank your hotel as Average only because of the wifi otherwise I would give it higher. looking forward to hear back from you.
Thank you and a Happy New Year.

We booked through Uniglobe travel agent in Courtenay BC, 11 Amazing day's at Manava Beach Resort and Spa! Our package included Full buffet breakfast everyday, Christmas eve dinner and New years eve dinner. We had a Beach Bungalow #308 very clean and perfect setting for watching the beautiful sun rise every morning.
Upon arrival we were greeted graciously with flower lei's and taken on a tour of the hotels amenities. Our luggage was taken directly to our room, Everyone was welcoming and friendly!
The property is absolutely beautifully landscaped and well kept!
We walked to local shops only 5 minutes away, all the local people were so friendly.
The Buffet breakfast was superb many choices, omelette's made fresh on spot, bacon, sausage, waffles, crepes, fresh fruit and pastries the list goes on. DELICIOUS!

There is one area we would like to give the highest PRAISE! AUTERA'A BAR/RESTAURANT!!! Lol
Now ALL the staff here were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC you all made our VACATION THE BEST with your Kindness, Laughter, smiling faces day by day, from the first day you took the time to know us by name and made us feel so welcome, we felt more like friends than customers. Each and everyone is Beautiful inside and out! You all went ABOVE and BEYOND CUSTOMER SERVICE! We will definitely remember and miss all of you!

Christmas eve and New Years eve dinner's / shows were Absolutely well planned, and entertaining. A variety of delicious dishes, (even though it rained on Christmas eve quick thinking from Management to resort to plan B) ALL was EXCEPTIONAL!
Excursions: Must Do's:
Scooter: so you can go around the whole Island Beautiful!!
4x4 Tour: Fun, Informative, sites from Belvedere lookout and Magic Mountain are BREATHTAKING!
Miti Tour (Swimming with Ray's and Black Tip Sharks): The Best!!! So much fun, learned a lot about the whole Island, History/Plants/Rays, Had a Beautiful delicious lunch on the beach. Our Guide was AWESOME!!! (smaller Boat tour more personal)

ALL in ALL our ONLY Complaint would be that we had to leave!

We spent two nights there and we enjoyed our stay. We booked the bungalow with a private swimming pool. It was clean and nicely decorated but the pool was quite small and the lights weren't working. It's definitely not the same standard as the intercontinental (where we spent two nights as well) but the whole complex is smaller which is nice. The restaurant in particular feels more cosy. They have happy hours between 4 and 6pm which is nice. The cocktails we had were good. The food was just standard hotel food, not great but not bad either. Overall a good experience.
