hotel and grounds look good just don't look too close--it's a place that really needs improvement!! Hotel staffers friendly--BUT restaurant and the bar service was horrible!! The food was also horrible!! Bare drinks were lacking alcohol. Bartenders were Not friends and did not want to work!!!

We arrived at 2 pm on 5/4/18...checked in to our day room as this was our transition stop before our flight home...our room 3306 was a 1 BR suite with huge balcony area...the bedroom had two full size (not queen beds) which I thought was odd...overall the room was dated and in need of an upgrade as furniture worn...the deck offered a nice view if you ignore the roof type weeds and worn roof planks...while there appears to be construction and areas under repair, the work appears to be piecemeal...the entire pool area is in dire need of repairs and upgrade...We thought the exercise classes in the pool during prime swim time was odd and an inconvenience...I will note the black sand beaches are great for view but not for swimming (too rough) during our visit...the food and service is very good...the hotel is situated far enough from downtoan to relax and enjoy the scenery.

We arrived at 2.30am from the airoport with a booking from 9am, but they let us in to the room anyway. We stayed 2 nights prior to a cruise. Large rooms with huge balcony area. However the hotel is dilapidated overall - there is work going on in various areas but it needs a lot more, for example the thatch on the restaurant which appears to be patched with plastic, battens and tarpaulin.

We spent a week at the Pearl resort in Bora-Bora stayed in a hut over the ocean what an incredible experience beautiful resort. This is not the same company tired old dilapidated buildings walked up to get a drink at the bar in the floor drains were spewing out gray water/sewer. My wife and I left could not get reimbursed went to a different hotel this place should be condemned. None of the elevators worked had to carry the luggage up to the room. I was afraid to eat any food here as the ice was in a bucket on top of the sewerage spilling out from the floor drains behind the bar. Don’t waste your time or your health there are better places on this island.

Although this is a somewhat large resort, it has an intimate feel. The staff was very attentive. The pool has water bicycles and there were exercise classes with them. However, they were in French. The pool is an infinity pool. The food was very good. There was a Marquesan dance show on.Thursday night that was fabulous. The black sand beach had lots of waves, but people were enjoying it. There are some upkeep issues such as missing tile. These affect appearance and not utility. It is in a more remote area so the surrounding area is lush and wilder.

We liked our room, although it was showing wear in a few spots it was nice. The bathroom was not overly private. Our particular room had a nice ocean view and it was lovely to hear the waves crashing against the shore. The black sand beach was wonderful, not really long enough to get any exercise but nice none the less. The pool was great and you could get bar service if you wanted while in your lounger. We saw two incredible evening shows after dinner and a ukulele band at happy hour. The staff was terrific. There is construction going on all around. It is fairly far away from everything. We did take advantage of the free shuttle and went downtown one afternoon. Breakfast had everything you could want.

Plus - huge, comfortable, clean rooms, 2 toilets, gorgeous view. Minus - confusing layout, tiny slow elevators, wild roosters. We arrived late at the hotel (after midnight) from LA. We were leaving early for a flight to Bora Bora so I was not happy with a wild rooster waking me up at 5 AM after 4 hours of sleep! The Buffett at breakfast worried me too because I wasn’t sure how they were going to keep bugs off. The hotel appears a bit run down and I felt like I was still in a city, not somewhere I could totally relax and rewind.

Following at least 18mths of informed research, reading from internet & Instagram 'travel bloggers' my husband & I decided to book a celebration trip for our 35th Pearl Wedding Anniversary to Pearl Beach Resort and Spa, Bora Bora for 7 nights in a premium overwater bungalow following a 2 night en route stay at Pearl Beach Papeete (and same on the return to home to Gold Coast Qld Australia (via Auckland). Bora Bora Pearl is the most wonderful resort and perfect destination with the ability for guests to do as little or as much activity as you want. A most informative infopack is given & explained by lovely multi-lingual Reception members upon arrival by boat shuttle following an Air Tahiti ATR flight to Bora Bora regional airport. We absolutely loved the overwater bungalow. All beverages & food were so enjoyable, fresh & beautifully presented. Prices were relevant to local availability and were most acceptable. A couple of shuttle boat trips over to the main island (these ran very regularly and we took advantage of the free options) took us then by bus (small cost return) to the capital of Viatape. Experience some local culture & take advantage of the beautiful local fruit sold roadside or indulge in a couple of bottles of beautiful French wines with French cheeses & pates and fresh baked baguettes. A nice change for brunch/lunch maybe..... worked for us. All Staff were exceptional, so very helpful, kind and always aimed to please. Australian / Gold Coast could really learn from Pearl Beach Bora Bora service and Tahitian ways. The incredible scenery, idyllic setting, magnificent water and great weather (no air conditioners needed here for us!) made for one perfect holiday escape. So many beautiful couples holidaying there from France and around the world certainly know their destinations. Thank you so very much for looking after and 'spoiling us'..............Merci beucoup & Maaruru !!! We'd so love to return......

The resort overall is positioned central to the airport and Papeete. My room was on the 3rd wing/block which featured a room that cascades out into a bathroom section and then to a living room and large balcony. With ample space, chairs and views out to the black beach ahead - you can appreicate the roaring clashing waves that are in perpetuity (and rather evident at night time unless you clise the inside doors of the room). This makes the room ergonomic The breakfast options can be enhanced further with barista coffess made and additional freshly made options that are pefected and modularised. Attended for tahiti tourisme conference and with ample space, the conference hall had alot of issues with wi fi. This is in contrast to my room which had good wi fi connectivity due to the presence of repeates. During such a busy time, reception made things possible by finding a charger for my laptop which can double as a power source for my other devices! This shows inherent culture to assist and get things sorted. The bar and pool are is beautiful and would do great with a live grill or pizza oven to complement the beachside feel. Management can truly enhance the dining and in house room service menus with some points above to really propel the appeal of this resort!

This 'resort' is very old and tired looking. I highly wish we had not even bothered staying here and just stayed longer at our resort in Bora Bora. The staff were friendly enough but good luck to you if you want to go out at night. The shuttle service is only twice a day at 8:30 and 2 and you can only come back at 5pm. There is no public transport after that time either. In addition to that the resort had what seemed to be residents having pool workout sessions everyday which was highly annoying and disturbed our relaxation time. This place needs to work out if it is a hotel or an apartment but it shouldn't try to be both at the same time. Stay well clear of this resort
