    It was amazing to see the sharks from your room. The room was reasonable and modest for being in the middle of no where. The Island was clean. There were boats and roosters that woke us up early. Several large groups over a few days made the buffet style dinning stressful. No snacks in between meals and the showers don't have hot or fresh water. No red wine or place to buy snacks. It was a gorgeous spot these are the issues that may be problematic.

    If you like putting your mask underwater and exploring an amazing coral reef in a completely untouristy location with such a wondeful and friendly staff then you have come to the right place. We will definitely return to Tetamanu village. This is not a grandiose 5 star resort- but rather a unique immersion into a simplifeid lifestyle of exploring underwater or a desolate motu with coral sand, community dining and sleeping in simple bungalows on the beach. Clean but rustic, no hot water for showers but you will not miss them. This is the "real" Polynesia

    Great diving and snorkeling at your bungalow steps
    Bungalows right on the water and right on the pass with awesome diving and snorkeling at your bungalow steps. Great camp-like communal experience.

    Great place to visit
    Tetamanu Village feels like a summer camp for adults and ocean lovers. Located right next to Tetamanu Pass, it contains its own diving center and scheduled dives and is a great place to arrange dives and rest in between. It is not just for divers, though. The surrounding area is also good for snorkeling and hiking the small island can also fill a morning. I spent 3 nights at Tetamanu and could have easily spent 2 more. The area is nice and picturesque, all meals are provided at the reception center (you can feed sharks your leftovers), and transport to and from the center is included in the package. It really, really helps if you speak french. My only complaints are (1) there are not locks on the bungalow doors or screens on the bungalow windows (I didn't have anything stolen but I am old fashioned when it comes to security) and (2) they don't have nitrox available for their dives. To do a nitrox dive you'll have to schedule your dive with Topdive. Overall I enjoyed my time at Tetamanu and may go back someday.

    On y va pour la plongée, les requins et la déconnection. Confort simple mais confortable et propre (pas d'eau chaude!). Reseau 4g aléatoire mais ce n'est pas l'important.Transferts depuis l'aéroport inclus (1h30) ainsi que la pension (bonne) complète (hors boissons) et les sorties journalières vers le moti sables roses. Une équipe au top !

    Bit of a rip off
    Not worth the huge price. The location is amazing, although a little warning of the 65 minute rough and uncomfortable boat ride would have been welcome... Room very basic without most of the facilities advertised (no ceiling fan, no rain shower - shower is a mere trickle!) but comfortable. Management showed no interest in solving problems or compensating us for false advertising. Food delicious. All other staff lovely.

    The place is right at the south pass and REALLY perfect for divers! The water is crystal clear and you can see the colorful corals, fish ans sharks even without diving/snorkeling. The food was also great and tasty. Nevertheless, we could feel some tension between the staff. Clearly, the majority of guests from all around the world come for diving and some couldn't dive as much as they wanted because they lacked some staff (sick, not their fault). And once it was cancelled last minute because the captain refused to cooperate. It's a pity and it would have been wishful to anticipate this. Apart from this incident, we enjoyed our stay very much. It's really a magnificent location and perfect for disconnecting and relaxing.

    Site fabuleux
    Le site est fabuleux. Les bungalow sur le Lagon sont toit à fait corrects. Centre de plongée sur place. Demi pension et excursion sable roses comprises. Seuls petits bémols : le Lit un peut petit et le club de plongée ferme le dimanche
