Wasn't sure about this accommodation, due to quite a few negative reviews. It turned out to be delightful. I had sorted out a few things before arrival with Elisa on reception, by email. It was her who checked us in and said a big hello and introduced herself. Everyone was speedy and efficient at the counter. The room was clean and spacious with a view toward Moorea, but partially blocked by the palm trees. Lovely sunsets. We didn't know that whales might come right into the bay in front of us, but someone else saw an adult and baby come in one late afternoon. You are isolated from shops, so we booked the shuttle and went into town for 3 hours one morning. Did some shopping at the market and mini mart. Walked along the waterfront and admired the yachts. We did a half day circle island tour which was VG and gave us an overview of the island. We enjoyed the chairs on the grass to watch the sunset. The Polynesian show was excellent. It was lovely to get a free pearl from the pearl shop onsite. 1 litre of water is provided free everyday. There are tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge. There is a resort fee and city tax to pay at the end unless your travel agent has already sorted the resort fee. Our only annoyance was just having one entry to get down to the beach, way along the other end from where our room was. Is it not possible to have more than one entrance? If after Tahiti you are heading off to Moorea on the ferry, there is nice food to buy at the service station opposite the ferry terminal (we got a baguette and cheese and ham) and within the terminal there is fruit and snacks. Also on the ferry you can buy lunch-type food and even freshly baked unfilled baguettes.
What nice place ! After a few negative reviews I was skeptical. Wow, those reviews were wrong. Our room, 2502, had an incredible view. Was 2 levels with the bed & shower upstairs. The staff were all very friendly, happy, and helpful. The pool bar tender would occasionally sing to the music , softly. Breakfast was very good. The pool & beach were nice as well. I didn't want to leave. I recommend.
Got a room upgrade, that was nice. Staff were really friendly and the food was good. The pool is spectacular. The beach is nice, be aware it maybe a bit steep for young children or non-swimmers. A good stepping off point for our Island Holiday.
After some of the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. We were treated by lovely people, an excellent view of the ocean, and a beautiful infinity pool. The complex is fairly large but feels intimate. We were extremely delighted to find that Thursday nights there's a wonderful Tahitian dance performance in front of the restaurant. It was free but I've paid oodles for far worse Luau's in Hawaii. It was an amazing performance. The food is a little expensive and not very good, but the view and entertainment can't be beat.
Room was dated, property was understaffed. We were booked for 7 nights, only stayed for 4, moved to Moorea. Beautiful location, amazing views and beautiful grounds but the rooms were not what we expected at all. Workers on the roof for 3 days so no relaxing or sleeping in. Would not stay there again.
very friendly hosts, lovely & charming service, (bit unprofessional but who cares !) arrived before a yachtcruise with Windstar and were more satisfied than expected. Wholeheathly Polynesian welcome. excellent seafood for dinner. grilled tuna-covered in sesam is my recomondation. Very mentionable was the Tahitian-pearl-shop, where my daughter could catch a real pearl for free. With this they made a nice necklace for only € 45,00. After our yachtcruise we came back. Upon to our flight to Sydney we could use all the facilities for free, including the spa. So, if you plan a cruise in French Polynesia, before you get onbord , join Tahiti Pearl Beach Resort you will realy love it. lovely greeting from Austria, Arnold & Hannah
Came here to stay for a night and day for the last leg before returning to Singapore. Cost about $353 sgd per night but this time we got a premium room. Beautiful scenery and poolside restaurant. Outside the hotel is a black sandy beach. Believed is the results of volcanoes in the past. This hotel provided wifi but only the lobby has the best signal. Most of the staff were French. Rooms at tower 2, 3, 4 were quite quiet to walk back in the night. Super quiet. The hotel doesn't provide shuttles to go outside so you got to ask conceirge to help you call a cab. No uber or grab in Tahiti.
Our family wrapped up a big vacation with a few nights in this hotel. It worked well for us. I think this place used to belong to another luxury brand of hotels. You can tell that the place is a little behind on some maintenance-- some rust and peeling paint on the exterior, some loose fittings on some fixtures in the room. But we loved our stay. The staff was really attentive. The kids loved the pool. Two nights they had these great Polynesian dance groups perform. The beach is nice... its black sand which is different. It's not the place you want to go if you want to snorkel right out your back door. And we ended up eating in the restaurant a fair amount. The prices were high... I expected that. But the food was well prepared and the portions were always generous. Next time we might stay on another island where the snorkeling and beaches are better, but I'm glad we stayed here this time around.
We stayed two nights at Pearl Beach - before and after our 5 day excursion to Moorea. Overall, I would recommend going to Moorea - but if you find yourself in Papeete, Pearl Beach is not a bad choice. The staff are friendly, the accommodations are sufficient, and the amenities are nice. Pros: We stayed in a room with a Jacuzzi, and enjoyed views of the ocean/sunset/sunrise while relaxing in our private hot tub. Bed is comfortable, and shower/bathroom is spacious. A/C kept up with the heat, and we were able to sleep comfortably. Cons: Wifi is absolutely terrible - you are instructed to stand on your balcony to get wifi (none in the room). If you require regular access to the internet, this might not be the best choice. Although paid options are available, there are other resorts where the wifi is better (and included in your rate). Pro/Con: You definitely feel the island throughout the entirety of this resort; but with that comes the lack of efficiency/organization in the service. There are weird rules in the bar/restaurant for where you can and cannot eat... when you can and cannot eat... and the timing is always hit or miss. The staff are always friendly - but if you are in a hurry, maybe eat in town.
It should be said that all staff were always in a good mood but when that's been said I cannot stress the amount of disorganisation and lack of attention to the customer there exists. My family and I were at dinner and watching a dance show we ordered food at around 7 pm from 1 of the 2 people serving around 30 tables. It took an hour for the food to arrive and even then the menu card had not only exaggerated the quality of the food but the portion size was not enough to fill any hungry person.(the tender pork with mash potatoes) This way of not noticing customers was unfortunately a repeating occurrence and yet another example of this is the hundreds of leaves lying in the pool. While the internet is good and the rooms very nice a complete change in staff organisation and attentiveness is needed for this customer to give 5 stars
