Moorea, Tikehau, and Tahiti (French Polynesia) -- April 2006

For our second anniversary, Bob and I decided to go back to French Polynesia, where we'd spent our honeymoon. We spent one night in LA on the way out there, which I would highly recommend doing if you are coming from the East coast or Midwest, as it breaks up the long travel time.

Here was our itinerary:
1 night Westin Los Angeles Airport
3 nights Sheraton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa
4 nights Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort
1 night Intercontinental Resort Tahiti


Westin LAX review:
We spent one night here on a layover between Atlanta and Tahiti.
The rooms are fine--on the small side, but with the great Westin Heavenly beds. Very small bathrooms and a lack of water pressure, but that was not a huge deal for one night. No problems with airport noise at all.

We had dinner at the bar downstairs--it offers the standard bar fare, just dressed up a bit. Our meals were somewhat overpriced and not particularly good--not sure how a restaurant can screw up pizza, but it is apparently possible :)

Service can a bit surly. Check-out was fine, but the young guy who checked us in at the Starwood preferred desk was plain rude (basically could barely be bothered to speak to us, blatantly ignored a question we asked, etc.). Bar service was semi-polite, though very slow.

My advice would be to stay at the Sheraton Gateway instead (we had tried to get in there, but they were all booked). We had a much better night's stay there a few months prior.

Other reviews coming soon...
