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

Tahiti prices are expensive with little choice and the best we got when trying to negotiate a last minute discount for that night was free WiFi even though low season? So still 11000 for the room which was compact but done nicely. Pool was small but very welcome. Taxis/transfers are really expensive so either hire a car at the airport... More

Starting off with our circle trip, this was our 1st stop for only 1 night until the end of total trip in 13 days when we return. 1st thought was....."when will we get there"? Quite a distance from the airport and Papeete city proper. This location is definitely for someone who plan to get a car and plans to be... More

Stayed for only one night until our flight to Bora Bora. Place was tidy and clean (although I found a cockroach sharing the bathroom with me). Air conditioner worked well but the noise from the neighbouring rooms woke me up early the next morning. The main issues we had though, was with the cost of the extras. For example, the... More

My partner and I and our adult son stayed in the studio for 5 nights. It was very comfortable and had a very small kitchen area which we used everyday. It wasn't super equipped to make meals but it was adequate for preparing sandwiches or making an omelette. The room had good air conditioning and a safe. There was access... More
