Tahiti Pearl Beach Resort

Tahiti Pearl Beach Resort Located about half an hour from Papeete on a solitary stretch of beach. It sits by the oceans side and black sand. Staying here is a solitary vacation unless you take a taxi to Papeete ($20.00) , hire a driver, or rent a car. There are several buildings which contain the rooms. The first room I had was two levels. Very nice but carrying a suitcase up to the second floor was not what I wanted to do. Another room or should I say suite had the bedroom in the back, one and half baths and a front room facing the ocean. All was comfortable and clean . However I would have preferred the bedroom to face the ocean and not be above a parking lot. Shower was great with water press The breakfast was buffet. Very good with omelettes made to order. Good coffee machine. Some of the breakfast staff smiled and were attending, others were not. Depends on who you talk to. The Infinity pool was very nice. Classes for adults and children. Only certain areas of the pool were somewhat deep. Great view right by the ocean. Overcast skies in February. Warm rain and water. Hotel interior was very nice. Dinner at the Haiti Mahana Restaurant in the Hotel has slow service. Same place as breakfast. Make a reservation if you want to sit closer to the Ocean. Had the salmon and mashed potato. Very good for $25.00, small bottle of Perrier for $4.00, two scoops of ice cream for $ 9.00. Service charge and government tax included in the price of the meal. Service is 13% and tax us 4%. As far as WIFI. It is advertised that it is in your room but it is very intermittent . Best in Hotel lobby. On the whole would recommend the Pearl if you want quiet. There is nothing to walk to in immediate area.

Nice place between pool and seashore! Not to far from Papeete! Breakfast could be better. Dîner was tasty! The room was clean. Loved the marquisians show and the buffet! Great room service, efficient...

Following a couple weeks touring New Zealand and Australia, we stopped in Tahiti to relax and cut our return flight into two shorter segments. The Pearl Beach is a very nice place. A little dated but most facilities are in descent shape. The entrance is nice and appealing, but the parking seems to get little maintenance attention. Inside, the lobby, walkways, and dining/entertainment areas are covered, but very susceptible to weather conditions. The tile floors become deadly when it rains! Our room was nice, comfortable but could use a makeover. The hardwood floors need repair in places and the shower fixtures had seen better days. A little attention to such details could put this place squarely on top. The food is only average and a far cry from the high prices. Though all of Tahiti is costly, they could easily spark the menu and raise the bar on food quality and justify the cost. It’s a bit too far to walk anywhere and r/t cab is pricey, so don’t be afraid to rent a cheap car. Roads are safe to drive and driving opens more opportunities! Most important - we inadvertently discovered the French Polynesian rainy season. Avoid Jan thru Mar!

If i had to do it over i would choose to stay here on either end of a cruise Bora bora beautiful as well Miss the food trucks It is a rip off We went here on a stopover to New Zealand In hindsight i would fly straight to the south island with a stop in Hawaii Tahiti beautiful but the way flights get in at dawn and leave late at night with no where to get a day room is too difficult

We arrived in January 2018. Off season and very few guests made for a very peaceful stay. The amenities are all very nice. We arrived very early, 8:30am, and were able to change in the spa to our suits and enjoy the bar, pool & beach until our rooms were available. Our rooms were nice, bed comfortable, beautiful balcony with view of ocean. Staff were all very nice. The hotel is showing its age and there are plenty of areas that need some upkeep (paint, repairs, etc.). But this was reflected in the price we paid and we were happy with that for what we received. Also be aware that not speaking French or Tahitian can be difficult throughout Tahiti. This resort is no exception. We enjoyed out stay and would stay again or recommend to anyone.

Nice, clean, spacious room with excellent service. I stayed in two hotels in Papeete area and this was the best. Lovely ocean views, quiet and relaxing. Great intro to French Polynesia. A bit further from airport than other places but worth it for a couple of days.. very convenient to ferry. Yummy drinks at bar and food portions were very generous.

It is a lovely tropical piece of property on the Pacific. Our room(s) were like a condo, large terrace overlooking the ocean, huge living room (tv, couch, desk, coffee table, lamp) not ultra new, but livable, 2 beautiful bathrooms, the main one was just fabulous and a 2 piece washroom as you entered the suite, the bedroom was huge, two beds, huge dresser, tv, telephone, and we were within a 5 minute walk to the dining and pool areas! What more could you ask for .... internet usable in designated areas. The included breakfast was good.

It's hard to be a hotel on the main island, away from the gorgeous motus of Tahiti. But many return flights require a layover before your departure. Pearl Beach was nicely renovated and has rooms with a modern design, but I wouldn't linger here when you can spend more time on the motus. We stayed at the Meridien for our layover the year before, and liked Pearl Beach better. Our check-in was a frustrating experience. We arrived at 2 PM and were told we could take the free shuttle into Papeete (the airport is 30 mins away, and downtown is 20 mins away), BUT our room was not ready yet, despite 2 PM being the check-in time. We waited in the lobby for over 40 minutes while other guests checked in upon arrival. We checked back and were told to keep waiting. Finally, a desk clerk with a Trainee badge helped us, by checking with housekeeping until she found a room that was ready for guests. We were grateful for her help. The bed in our room was a king, but was made into a king in the European style of putting two twin beds together. We felt the hard edge in the middle all night and did not sleep well on the hard bed. We had dinner at Pearl Beach, and it was pretty pricey. There was a dance performance during our stay which was very cool. Wi-fi didn't work in our room, we were told to try using it in the lobby for the best service, but that seems to be standard in Tahiti.

The accommodation (suite) was excellent - most luxurious with lovely views over the ocean. Free good Wi-Fi. Problem with a/c fixed promptly and front desk staff most friendly and helpful. Alas all these good experiences let down by dreadful service at breakfast. No cereal bowls no spoons and a staff uninterested and unhelpful. Food adequate (at best). Whole eating area in serious need of a facelift. We had half board but evening choices very very limited under this arrangement. On our first night from sitting down eating two 2 courses and signing off took 3 hrs. A little better on the second night. The pool area is tired but easy enough to get a sun-lounger.

The Pearl Beach Hotel is located on a black sand bay some 30 minutes drive from Tahiti Airport. The room that I had, had an ocean view. As my room faced the Pacific Ocean, the sound of the roaring waves could still be heard even when the balcony windows were closed. Wifi was slow. The restorant was very nice but a little expensive
