Other than the airport, most everything else is a transportation challenge to get to. If you are big on swimming
or laying in the sun, this place is nice but for most everything else, you need to be on another island. Tahiti and especially Papeete is a business center, not exotic Polynesia. I might ad that we have have full days of rain for our entire visit.
P.S. this survey is a pain to complete.

I realize that Tahiti is overpriced and I did expect less for my money, however a crappy bed and poor airconditioning is unacceptable for what was sold as one of the "better" hotels. Also the staff was not that eager to help and service in the resturaunts was horrible. I would try another hotel next time.

The intercontinental is the best resort on the main island of Tahiti. I have stayed at the four biggies (Sheraton, Sofitel, Le Meridien, and Intercontinental) and this is definitely the best choice. It's location is prime - right near both the airport and port. The rooms are a little small, but very nicely decorated. The soaps, towels, and linens are spa quality. But by far the best thing about this resort if the pools!! The sand bottom pool is the nicest, most unique, most pleasant pool I have ever spent the day at! The food is excellent, though be careful about getting caught in the evening buffet for $80 per person - you can sit adjacent to the buffet space and order off the menu for much less. Everything in Tahiti is extremely expensive - at all the resorts. Don't let reviews about this one being expensive put you off - they are ALL expensive. Likewise, other reviews say Tahiti is dirty & poor - the city has some negative points, but the resorts are completely set apart from this.
Having said all that, I would recommend you stay on one of the other islands that have more nature activities - Bora Bora, Moorea, Raitaia - it's worth the extra hop to get to those. But if you are in Tahiti proper for a reason (like we were transfering from a flight to a cruise this time), the Intercontinental is the place to stay.
