This was our first overnight stay on Rangiroa , altho' we've stayed twice on not so nearby Fakarava. In both cases we stayed in beachside bungalows... And the comparison favors Rangiroa. delightful BUG FREE bungalows with closable windows, air conditioning, refrigerators and very clean bathrooms. Free WiFi and friendly staff makes this our first choice in this part of French... More

We spent four nights at this well run hotel. Jean-Frederic, the owner was helpful and cheerful, helping us make the most of our stay on the island. Good food and a relaxed atmosphere where guests interacted freely with each other. Thanks for a great stay.

This was our 5th stay at Raira Lagon. I highly recommend Raira Lagon. The bungalows are new (about 5 years old) and clean. Each has a hot water shower, a/c and a refrigerator. There are several electrical outlets and the lighting is good. Breakfast consists of coffee, tea, juice, fruit, baguettes, jams, cheese and sliced ham. Sometimes hard-boiled eggs. Dinner... More

The bungalows are simple but very hearty, with cozy verandas and everything in good condition. The view from the seaside bungalow is just amazing and the gardens surrounding all the bungalows is colorful and relaxing. Free bikes for trips to the town (about 4 km), only one meal choice but absolutely delicious, fresh and local. Very inviting atmosphere.

We were in a group of 8 so we had good company for our two nights of relaxation. Our "Mantra" garden bungalow was pleasantly located with a sea view from a good balcony. It was roomy, well appointed with air con and fan and a separate loo. I think it was the best of the garden rooms that our group... More

Raira Lagon was wonderful. The designers of the bungalows thought of everything, from an unobtrusive clothesline built right into the porch, but on the side so it did not obstruct your view of the lagoon, to a faucet at the foot of the steps so you could wash your feet before entering, to the interior design - if you wanted...

We stayed a week at this pension on our second trip to Rangiroa, so we have some perspective. The best thing about Raira Lagon is the service. My wife asked for a cake for my birthday and they baked one, and didn't charge us for it. That was just the highlight of very friendly and caring service by the staff.... More

Lovely pensions and gardens but no sandy entry to water. Lacks atmosphere, I would recommend you stay at Les Relais de Josephine on the pass

After searching for a place to stay on the island including looking at reviews on trip advisor I chose the Raira Lagoon and was very happy that I did. The place was newly remodeled in the summer of 2009 and they did an outstanding job. Raira is located close to the airport and a short distance from 2 restaurants and... More
