We booked Relais Fenua wanting an clean, friendly and affordable place away from Papeete (but accessible) and easy access to the west coast of Tahiti... This is exactly what we got. Our hosts were very friendly, accommodating and extremely informative on things to see and do. It isn't on the beach directly but a 5 minute walk away there's a... More

Stayed for two nights and the Place was very beautiful ,As we flew in at midnight, when we arrived there was no one to welcome us in the hotel.... a little strange because Tahiti has a well-known reputation in the way they welcome tourists. The room was nice and clean and we get a good night of sleep after a... More

Relais Fenua was a fantastic hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. In a very good location, right near the nicest beach in Tahiti. Clean and pleasant rooms. The best thing for me about Relais Fenua was the family atmosphere. Very friendly and personable. Airport transfers were very useful as well. We arrived in Tahiti at midnight and it... More

We had a close to midnight flight our of Tahiti and flew in form Raiataia - so we needed somewhere for one night and a late checkout. I didn't want to spend a fortune but also didm"t fancy the Airport Motel or similar and we wanted something to do during our last day! This proved to be a good option.... More

We spent just one night in this small hotel and we were very satisfied: just few rooms, all around a pretty garden and a small pool (similar to a motel but more intimate), with a kind staff. The surrounding doesn't offer you too many attractions (you're just along the coast road), but at walking distance there's a beautiful beach and... More

The hotel itself is not next to the beach but the garden and atmosphere is very cozy. We only stayed for 1 night. Overall good place with very nice owners. The place is quite far from the main city of Papeete

Sadly we didn't get to stay at Relais Fenua, which we had chosen based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor, as I was taken ill. The manager at the hotel fully understood our circumstances and did not charge us for our cancellation. Such a kind gesture which helped us at a difficult time. We can only thank you for being...

This hotel is a good alternative for resorts because it is family owned and the Manager is very friendly, available to give any information about the island. Rooms are clean, modern, air con works, wifi in the room works as well. The beach is 5 min away walking.

Bad location: next to a main road with a lot of traffic at any time of the day. Small dirty path to get access from the main road to the relais. 20 min walk from the closest access to the beach. Relais: Nice room, good size with small appliances to cook. small private terrasse. The relais is depressing, tourists are... More

Staff are friendly and helpful. Transfer to and from the ferry dock or airport are provided at a reasonable rate. I arrived at 6.00pm when it was already dark. There is someone on duty until 8.00pm but through the night there is no-one about and it is very dark. I had no phone and would have been stuck in an... More
