This was stop #2 (of 5) of our French Polynesian honeymoon. Overall experience was wonderful. We only stayed 2 nights, but would have loved to stay longer in retrospect. In stark contrast to the larger hotels & resorts on some of the other more popular islands, this hotel feels more like a b&b and was a breathe of fresh air... More

Very clean, friendly place. All the bungalows are the same and close together. But you there is complete privacy and quietness. Food is french style, very good and more than plenty. We really enjoyed staying at Opoa Beach Hotel and can only recommend it.

Finally, a place in French Polynesia that knows how to take care of their guests! We have been to 6 French Polynesian islands and have had just so-so experiences with our lodging.

It's an hours journey from the airport. There are not many facilities at the hotel. There is no aircon in the rooms. There is no english TV. The dinner menu has no translations. It's French or nothing. The food is delicious but you would struggle to get anything that represents polynesian food. No free water bottles put in your room... More

Oh I so wish I was still "floating" in the hammock on the veranda of the beach front bungalow :) We had the most perfect stay at Opoa Beach.

The best part of the experience at Opoa is the beauty of the location and the beach bungalow, that overall is very well appointed. It's however, a bit pricy for the level of comfort you get (wasn't able to get a hot shower during our stay..), and in hotter days bugs must really be a nuisance. The restaurant is very... More

I just did a 2 night stay in the beach bungalow at Opoa. This review is mixed because the hotel itself is beautiful and the staff is very helpful and attentive.
