Maitai Lapita Village Huahine3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Spacious room, very comfortable bed, shower that works - in fact everything in the room worked, and a couple of comfortable chairs and a table outside overlooking a private garden. But have plenty of mosquito spray. The bungalows are well spaced apart, separated by trees/garden, etc. But some of the units are a fair distance from reception and although they have tricycles for the staff to get to the rooms, they do not use them for delivery and pickup of bags, which is just poor service. The village is pretty close so, there are other options in the Yacht Club for cheaper meals and drinks, the supermarket to make your own breakfast/lunch, and a little bit further down the road, a crepes food truck. Do venture not so far past that to the Distillerie for some interesting liquors to sample and buy.
We stayed in a partial overwater bungalow (premium lake view) that overlooked a beautiful pond filled with lily pads, fish and eels for 4 nights. We really enjoyed using this resort as a home base while we explored the island and the lagoon.The bungalows are separated enough so you don't really see or hear anyone else up close. You feel like you are in your own private cocoon. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the A/C could be a little stronger, but it was fine. Beware that you will hear roosters crowing and wild dogs barking at early hours! But earplugs solved that problem.The facilities are immaculate and staff is constantly mopping the black slate floors in the public spaces. The hotel was built next to an architectural site where they found pottery that shows the Polynesians traveled farther and earlier than they thought. In designing and decorating the bungalows, the hotel incorporated little touches to reflect the early culture and pottery, like gigantic sinks shaped like canoes. It gives the hotel a bit more individuality than your standard stock hotel. I was a little concerned that the cutouts in the high walls of the bungalow (see photo attached to the review) would let too much light in in the mornings, but it wasn't a problem for us. The concierge gave very good advice on picking tours. The restaurant's food for lunch and dinner was pretty good. The breakfast buffet was adequate, although I would have liked a bit more freshly made warm dishes and more variety. The pool is nice, and the beach, while small, has a gorgeous view. There was never, however, a problem getting a lounge chair that looked out on the water when I wanted to relax. The sunsets from the beach near this property were absolutely phenomenal. Different, but still spectacular, each evening. I never knew I could take that many pictures of the sun setting. I would go back in a heartbeat if I stayed in Huahine again.
We stayed three days. Upon arrival we had two bottles of water in the little frige our entire stay. The airconditioner could have been better. No place to put away luggage. Breakfast was included in the rate, but breakfast was terrible. Pre-made eggs, bacon was not cooked. Dinner was very good every night. Grounds was beautiful. Did not enjoy the beachfront property. Would not select this property again.
As a group of 8 we stayed 2 nights here. The cabins are beautiful and well appointed. The airconditioning could have been cooler and the pillows were very flat but the beds were comfortable and the scenery was gorgeous! The food at the restaurant was really good! We rented a car for 4 hours and drove around the island. It was such a unique resort, I would definitely stay here again.
We were looking for a place to stay for the day as we had jumped off our sailing ship. We didn't inquire about a day room, instead we booked a room to have a place to relax. The service here was excellent, which says a lot because we have just left two days at the Four Seasons in Bora Bora. The beach was nice and very clear, the hotel provided snorkels and kayaks. The room was gorgeous and the grounds themselves were too. We loved this boutique style hotel and will be back to spend more time on this sleepy island. One complaint is we did get some bug bites at dusk, which is something that had not occurred at our last hotel, but all in all I give this a 5 star rating.
Our Family stayed here for 4 nights, what a pleasure. It is a little piece of heaven a bit like a page from the tropical storybook when you were a child. The rooms are stunning, the staff are super friendly, the restaurant very good and the beach right there. A must do if you’re coming to Huahine
Stayed here for four nights. Good snorkeling out front of hotel, food was good but expensive so took a walk towards the marina and found the yacht club. It had fairly priced food for the region and Happy hour 5-630 pm, very near market for room essential (beer, liquor, food). We rented a car and drove around the island which was enjoyable--some absolutely amazing views! Stop at the Le Mahana Hotel for some great snorkeling off the beach!
This island, Huahine, and this hotel are just magical. Huahine is like Bora Bora thirty years ago. It is beautiful, has great snorkeling, stunning beaches and a rich history that the people of Huahine have done everything they can to preserve and make accessible. Our travels this year and last were arranged by Tahiti.com - can't say enough about how great they were in assisting us. The hotel staff were also incredible. This is a great hotel and a great island.
We just had 3 nights at this resort at the end of a 2 week trip that included stays in Tahiti, Moorea, Tahaa, and Raiatea. Huahine is a quiet and beautiful island but unfortunately we had a lot of rain during our 3 days here. The resort is pretty and the huts are really nice. With a few improvements it could be a much nicer experience and be a 4 or even 5 star resort (there isn’t a 4 or 5 star yet on the island). When we arrived at the resort the receptionist was friendly enough but there was no one to help with our bags or to show us how our room worked. It’s quite a big property and our key didn’t work so we had to go back to reception. We requested a room off the lagoon as we were worried about mosquitos and after asking a few times we were moved to a room a bit removed from the still water but we were charged an extra fee. I realize that it was a more expensive room but the resort was really quiet (rainy season) and most other hotels would therefore offer an upgrade without an extra charge. The rooms are really lovely inside but could be 4 or 5 star standard with nicer towels and bedding. Also, it’s really surprising that mosquito nets aren’t in the rooms even though mosquitos were less of an issue inside than I feared. We only had one meal at the hotel. While the restaurant has a lovely setting on the beach, we found the breakfast a bit low end for the price: espresso from a machine and a sad fruit plate. The made to order eggs were however good. A nice latte, pretty fruit plate and French bread selection would go a long way here. We enjoyed the Huahine yacht club and had dinner there 3 nights in a row. It’s a 5 minute walk down the beach, and is basic but has a nice atmosphere and super fresh fish and good steak. We also walked to the grocery store in the mornings to buy fresh bread, cheese and fruit to have in our room for breakfast. We organized a tour of the island through the hotel and even though it was pouring rain we still enjoyed seeing where they grow vanilla, the pearl farm, and the various views of the island. I would recommend this resort to people keen on enjoying Huahine but feel it’s a pity the hotel doesn’t spruce it up a bit to realize it’s full potential.
Excellent stay in this hotel which is only 3 stars . Reception was good and relatively fast despite the arrival at the same time of a tour. Accommodation is excellent and the bungalows are spacious with a huge bathroom shower and a lot of space to move but you need to walk to reach them as there was no service to take the suit case to the room. The food as we took half board is good although the choice is in my mind a little limited . The morning is breakfast is definitely too limited and it is a pity because this hotel has a good price/ service ratio with a pleasant efficient staff . Location is good , 10 min from the airport and you can walk to town and supermarket easily. Swimming pool and beach are small but with nice sunset views. The 4X4 and combined sea tour of the island is recommended with a raw fish lunch on a motu and the vanilla farm offered excellent products .
