We had a lovely time in Moorea while staying at the Camping Nelson. The staff was always nice and happy to provide useful infos, such as where to hire kayaks or going food shopping. The structure is a bit old, but still looks quite nice and the sea view is simply amazing!!! Waking up every day with such a beautiful... More

I stayed here in 2012, had a good experience, so I returned in 2013. What a bad idea! Same owners, and upon my arrival, I was told my reservation was non-existent. Thank goodness I had my email confirmation with me. After a bit of an argument, they conceded and offered me a room that would not accommodate my needs...hmmm... Eventually,... More

We stayed in the Alto bungalow. It was rustic but charming. With its own garden overlooking the lagoon, table, chairs and a fridge plus a communal kitchen we felt it was a relaxing place to be self sufficient for a few day. The location of this place is great with shops, bar and restaurants just 5 mins walk away. The... More

I have stayed here twice before, in 2007 the last time. First, I was here alone, it was great, had a simple room, made friends, enjoyed swimming in the water. The second time, I came here with my gf, our room wasn't that comfortable, had thick walls and it was quite uncomfortable for us. And also, the price of the... More

My husband, daughter and I camped here last week for 8 nights. It was wonderful. The owner showed us around, was always kind and helpful. Location is wonderful and we will remember the beautiful sunsets every night. Good snorkelling right on the beach and easy access to shops and eateries. The shared showers and toilets were always clean and so... More

Sometimes you have to trust your inital "gut" feel as we parked at Camping Nelson. This was not for us! The cabin we had was "average" to say it mildly. Very small, no fan or air con. People hanging out in front of the cabin drinking beer and smoking got knows what...(with all the respect not my cup of tea).... More

Well, what more to say than location! After successful hitching to Camping Nelson (free trip around half the island) we immediately jumped into the lagoon, after all it is literally 5m from the accommodation. white sand beach narrow, but very nice, walk along sandy beach, wont spend much time in accomm. anyway, just swimming and snorkelling all day.

I disagree with the comments below, in my opinion the kitched wasn't so dirty. The place is very cheap (only 15 euros per night! unbelievable for French Polynesia, probably the cheapest place in the country), the location is great, fresh and beautiful; there is a supermarket very close. The toilets are pretty clean; the only thing I might complain is... More

We were grateful to find a cheap place to stay in such a beautiful location, but we were surprised at the poor hygiene in the communal kitchen. Cats have free rein of the place, and it doesn't smell very good. The communal toilets/showers were clean, however.
