After wonderful days spent in moorea and borabora we arrived to this overpriced,rundown dump of a place. The overwater bungalow is a disgrace. Not only it is totally run down with tiles from the 50s breaking off, mold and dirt everywhere, but it was bug infested. In the 15 minutes we spent in it we saw two roaches. No air con and a noisy rusty fan, and neon lights to go with it and that,s it. We moved to a garden room where we had at least air con, but it looked like a motel room actually i stayed in better 50$ night motels in the usa. The service is either non existent or lackadaisical at the best. The pool is missing tiles, the whole place is ashambles and has seen better times that is 40 years ago, but probably not much has been done since. We knsow for a fact that THE ONLY REASON why there are still a lot of guests, is that the owner of this dump owns also tahiti nui travel which services most foreign travel agents booking stays on raiatea. There are options to this hell hole. Stay at raiatea lodge, see review, great place and top service, free wifi (in comparison to hawaiki nui where they dont have it) nice pool and nice quaint reastaurant for less than 200 dollars a night, which in polynesia is a bargain. Hawaiki nui? Should be torn down and rebuilt from scratch, included the staff and...."management" if there is one.
