Independent review for Sofitel Hotel on Tahiti Island in French Polynesia

sofitel tahiti beach resort hotel location picture

The Sofitel Tahiti Hotel offers modern comfortable rooms alongside a small beach close to the international airport. The uninspiring 60's style hotel fa├žade with its eight storey cement building still exists but interior finishings and a mix of contemporary art and bright Polynesia colours make this a pleasant and affordable stopover.
