En route to another Polynesian island we stayed at Fare Suisse for one night in September 2013. Everything was fine – a clean bedroom and bathroom, nice breakfast on the terrace which even when it’s raining gives enough shelter and of course a friendly Beni who fetched us from the airport in his car and provided us with an umbrella...

We stayed at le Fare Suisse on and off for 10 days while we were visiting Tahiti and the surrounding islands. The pension is clean, comfy, safe and quiet, 2 minutes from a big supermarket and minutes walk to the cultural center where the Heiva danse show take place, and a few more minutes walk to Papeete’s market and city...

All the reviews are right. Thus small pension is a great value, great location, clean and comfortable and very nice breakfast. Beni is a great host and shuttled us back and forth from port telling us all about French Polynesia. Only sorry we didn't book on the way out too....

We stayed in Tahiti at the beginning of your dive trip in French Polynesia in April 2013 and Fare Suisse was recommended to us via friends. We had a very warm welcome at the airport and Beni gave us lots of tips, information and things to do about Papeete. The Fare Suisse is beautifully located on a hill and all... More

My family and I stayed at the Fare Suisse for a total of 3 nights. Beni and his team were extremely friendly and made our stay very confortable. The free airport pick up service was very helpful and Beni was always right on time for us and that very early in the morning! The guest house is well situated in... More

We recently stayed a total of 5 nights before and after our voyage to the Marquesas Islands on the Aranui 3. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The lobby and breakfast areas were attractive. The staff was extremely helpful, including free shuttle to the airport and dock at all hours of the day (and night). The location is ideal. It's... More

We stayed four nights in the first half of June and couldn't have been happier. The patron Beni is excellent and the location is very convenient. We self-catered- there is a supermarket close by ansdeverything Papeete has to offer is an easy walk away.It would be hard to find better value

I stayed at Fare Suisse for over a week when I was in Tahiti last fall (on my way to do research in the Marquesas) and cannot recommend it more highly. It is the perfect accommodation offering safe, clean, and quiet rooms or dorm beds at a reasonable rate within an easy walk to everything Papeete has to offer (the... More

Benni and his staff provide excellent service, picking you up from the airport, providing clean accommodation. This is a great base. Free wifi. Local calls are free. His housekeeper is extremely helpful and friendly. Walking distance to the roulettes and markets (approx 15 mins), 2 minute walk to the supermarket. We were able to lock up our bags on our... More

My wife and I stayed at Fare Suisse for several nights before and after a cruise on the Aranui III. Beni was the perfect host. He picked us up and dropped us off, at the airport and the ship, with good humor and efficiency. Having that service alone was of considerable value because it removed the stress of seeking transport... More
