Just what we wanted
Posted May 27, 2015 on Hotels
Quiet, clean bungalows,on site restaurant excellent food the three times we ate there (prices standard for a Tahiti hotel-a bit pricey) Pool area with beautiful view of lagoon and their pier. Pool not big enough for laps, but there is a beautiful lagoon out front with warm clear water and that's what we came for. Just outside and 50 yards from the hotel, a store (with no sign) had basic supplies, but most importantly fresh baked baguettes delivered there at 5:30am every morning. There were also several snack cafe's walking distance for lunch and dinner. Restaurant Vaimao across the street serves good pizza for dinner, besides other dishes. Good service. Internet card must be purchased, $5 for 1 hour etc. (sign off to save minutes) was sufficient for me to check my emails. Airport just down the street about 15-20 minute walk and expect a charge to get a ride to and from there- about $38 for two people. For snorkeling, out front of the hotel under their pier there is plenty of reef fish to see, scattered coral heads otherwise coral trying to make a comeback, black tip reef sharks like to swim around here also along with other reef fish. The "aquarium" for snorkeling by the mouth of Tiputa pass is excellent for variety of fish and some black tip reef sharks.
