My wife and I went there on a Friday mainly to enjoy a local lunch, which they have apparently only Fridays, Saturdays and probably Sundays. What I liked: + the food was delicious and seemed to be authentic + very good value for money (1500CPF p.p. incl. fresh juice, which seems to be a bargain price on the island) +... More

We hired a private taxi driver to tour the Island of Moorea and she took us to this fantastic lookout point! There were awesome varieties of flowers and a Vanilla plantation that out did any other place we had been in French Polynesian. They had free Jam tasting and many items local for sale with great prices. Loved it and... More

We first visited here some years ago and it was good to return. The same nice people, impressive garden and vanilla plantation. It is a good place to stop for one of their special drinks while enjoying the spectacular view. The ice cream is also a must. A previous reviewer said they don't take cash. I think she meant foreign... More

I first found out about this place through some friends. We were driving around the island and wanted some fresh juice. We had a group of kids with us, and they wanted Ice cream. I warn you the road was horrible getting up there! Once you are up, you forget all of that and are taken in by the view... More

Stopped here on another tour. Got a good explanation as to how they grow vanilla (labor intensive). Received samples of the various jams that they make. Very Good. Nice view and clean restrooms.

This garden is beautiful. An out of the way area off the main road. When we got to the top after driving up a relatively steep road, the views of the island and ocean were amazing. The garden has a great selection of tropical fruit trees, flowers, and an area where they are cultivating Tahitian Vanilla plants, some were in... More

My husband and I recently visited the Tropical Gardens as part of an Island Tour while on Moorea... as they don't take cash we actually rented a car and came back the next day to buy their homemade jams... they were that good! The price point made them an incredible value and we can't wait to share them when we... More

Once you conquer the steep steep road up to this place, you will get rewarded by the beautiful views of the bay! Stunning views! We had lunch as well - no menu, you get served a platter with different local food experiences and some fresh pineapple juice. Delicious!

This is probably a better place to visit as part of a tour. We tried to get in with our rental car and had to back down into a turn around spot. Huge pot holes, road was a rocks and pebbles that spin out when you are trying to up the grade in first gear.
