Nice residence hotel on the beachPosted May 3, 2015
Pros: Everything! Next time, if there is a next time, we would probably rent a car.
Cons: Supply kitchenettes with basics like salt, pepper, sugar packets, tea bags, small coffee bags,
Location: Located away from everything. You can book things to do at the office. Nothing is very far away since you can drive around island in 2 hours.
Very relaxed, casual residence. It is quiet, friendly, away from hustle & bustle, non-commercial atmosphere. It is not fancy but lovely cottage-type place to stay. Absolutely loved walking to end of jetty to watch sharks(harmless) & tropical fish. Kayaking & snorkeling were enjoyable. Grocery store is 1-1/2 mi away to get supplies for kitchenette. Nearby food truck & pizzeria(little further & very authentic) had very good food at reasonable prices.This was a wonderful, relaxing way to end our 6 weeks of busy travel.

Nice place, right on the beach, close to good foodPosted Apr 19, 2015
Pros: The staff and the location.
Cons: The only thing that detracted from our stay was a couple mornings, the roosters were really overdoing it .. but that just seems to be a part of Moorea
Location: The Mayflower restaurant (best Mahi Mahi I have ever had) was not far (we rented a car for the week), and the Lagoonarium is a must
We booked the smaller bungalow, which turned out to be closer to the road than we liked, but we talked to the office staff (Melanie was great!) and they had another open suite, so we were able to upgrade at a great deal ... saved our trip (20th wedding anniversary). The other guests (one staying for 2 months) were delightful. There is a nice "food truck" next door, Daniel's Pizza is about a 2 minute walk and a couple stores ("Magasin") within walking distance (maybe a 20 minute walk). The snorkeling here is great .. very live coral with a variety of fish, and with 1-5 nurse sharks typically hanging around at the end of the dock. The "second reef" is just a few minutes paddle by kayak (sit on top kind, one or two person - provided by the hotel) and is amazing ... you can just kayak over all the coral and fish, or dump out and get a closer look, where the depth allows.

A lovely little bit of paradise!Posted Jan 17, 2015
Pros: They had an honor bar fridge in the courtyard, where you could get bottled water, juices, wine or beer, and pay for it on checkout. Cool!
Cons: Their office hours are interrupted in the midday, as in most of French Polynesia. But they were so gracious as to let us stay past their usual time.
Location: The location in Haapiti is perfect if you like off the beaten track. It's quiet and quaint. A car would be very useful but not absolutely necessary.
We booked the honeymoon cottage, which is a separate ocean-front fare surrounded by flowers and fruit trees. It has a canopy bed and a single bed where we set our suitcases. There is a fully furnished kitchenette with a half size fridge, cooktop, microwave, coffeemaker and kettle, and toaster. All the cookware and dishes are furnished as well. We love shopping at the local markets and preparing our own meals, so this was perfect! Bring your own coffee or tea, and seasonings. Pizza Daniel (best on the island) and an excellent roulotte (food truck) are a 5 minute walk as well. The unit is not air-conditioned, but there is a ceiling fan and nice breezes flow through even in summer. The neat thing is that this unit is thatched! Despite that, it's still very clean and did not leak at all even in a heavy rain. The beach and pier are wonderful for sunrise and especially sunset, as it's on the west side of Mo'orea. One of my favorite things was to have my coffee on the pier while watching the sunrise. We also enjoyed our Hinano beer there at sunset. It's so peaceful there. The snorkeling was excellent right off the pier, and they have a ladder so you can get in and out easily. Lots of coral and fish, and even a shark or two. In the rainy season, the water can get a little murky due to fresh water mixing in from the stream nearby. They have free bikes, kayaks, and even an outrigger canoe to paddle to the reef. They also loan snorkeling equipment at no charge.

Mostly goodPosted Dec 12, 2014
Pros: Quiet, air conditioned, friendly staff.
Cons: Amenities such as kayak and bicycles need improvement.
Location: Snorkelling is the main thing to do and it is best using a kayak to get to good water. Unfortunately, since they leak, you can't go for too long.
On the water, great boardwalk and dock. Kayaks leak badly, no anchor ropes for going out and using as a snorkel base, water near shore very murky after a rain and it rains a lot. Only one size of bicycle so my wife wasn't able to use one and kids would not be able to use at all. Staff very helpful. Pizza place very good and food truck next door quite good. Good public beach with clear water and good choral about a 10 minute walk away but we had to find it ourselves. Overall, nice place but I would chose something else next time with better visibility in water.

Escape to paradise.Posted Dec 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Had a great 2 day stay prior to a cruise. It is a lovely French Polynesia resort but not luxurious if that is what you are looking for. The staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful. We had a cute studio with a kitchenette. They had bicycles and kayaks available for free. The water area was great for swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed are stay here very much.
