"Hideaway on small "private" island"
A jewel in the paradise with very beautiful islanders. Away from a hectic life you can relax like no other place ... I dream about the wonderful fresh fish and the very humble and friendly Tahiti people . I will come back again and again. Thank you very much for everything.
"Great venue, food just ok."
The beauty of this place is amazing! As is the service! The food is just ok--given it is the only option, it should be top notch! Service at the restaurant is amazing. The spa is pure heaven and the best massage I have had in ages. The snorkeling is ok. The property needs to add paddle boarding. Would add a new fresh activity. Make sure to talk to Yahn in the reception to help set up any of your needs. He's the best!!
"Overpriced and dated in a beautiful setting"
We stayed at this property for 3 nights in an overwater bungalow. As excited as we were to stay, it fell very short of expectations, and we wanted to move hotels after the first night. First, the property is very secluded (on it's private motu), which means that all of your meals will be at the restaurant in the hotel. The menu is overpriced and the food quality is not that high, especially for breakfast (canned fruit in the middle of island paradise is a shame!). There are good activities that the hotel can help arrange that we enjoyed, but the service of the hotel is slow and less than helpful. The rooms are in need of a refresh, especially the air conditioners (some rooms don't even have AC). We were extremely hot, and although the hotel provided a small fan to supplement, we had trouble sleeping every night. Finally, I would mention that although being over the water is nice, it is not practical to swim as there are ~20+ (small) sharks in the water each night and some during the day.
We loved Tikehau very much and loved the Pearl Resort. We stayed in a beach bungalow which was fantastic. Clean, good AC, a perfect porch with 2 lounge chairs, right on the calm water. We loved the little sharks that would hang around at the shore line. Good snorkeling right at the resort under the over water bungalows. The staff was so kind and accommodating. Breakfast were great, simple but more than enough and plenty of fresh fruit and juices. Dinners were great. Lunches are wonderful, but we tend to split the typically huge salad for our lunches. All the resorts have great french bread with lunch, as did the Pearl in Tikehau. Plenty of food to get through the day and enjoy their great dinners. Dinners were excellent. We went to Bird Island and the picnic afterwards. We love birds, so we loved it! The boat ride is beautiful for it gives you a chance to see the east side of the atoll. The boat ride is worth the money. Bird Island has got things that are so interesting. There is a dive shop on site that you can book with the hotel. Jimie was the Dive Master and Jean-Paul the captain of the boat. Great guys as was the lady that we dove with. Plungee Tikehau is their name. Great people, great divers. They brought us to a Giant Manta Rays "cleaning station" we got to see 2 Manta's going around in circles. Massive animals. Great experience. Long boat ride to the sites, but great to be on the water. Loved this resort and all its people! Good diving!
"Service is just incomparable"
Amazing bungalows, stunning views, beautiful place... but what is incomparable is the service : smiling faces, laughing moments and people there for you at any moment. Restaurant and reception desk are where the kindests people are. Special thanks to Raipuni at the reception, Bachou and the taxiboat men, thanks to Moana for the massage at Manea spa, and all the waitresses at the restaurant (so nice and professionnal). It was a real pleasure for us to visit Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort ! 👍😀
