Let me preface this by saying that we were not staying at the hotel, only visiting the grounds after having this location recommended to us after we finished a tour of the island. I can also say that the view from the hotel restaurant is enough to keep one there for quite awhile, only those of us in our group... More

Very relaxed and very French. Best to avoid on the day the cruise ship is in town. Idyllic peace shattered! Go for a cabin on the beach if you want to wake up in the morning looking at the ocean. The food in the restaurant is as good as anywhere else on the island. Breakfasts disappointing. Bring your own muesli... More

Although not staying at this hotel, they allow those people who are in port on a cruise to utilise their facilities. We had access to the beach and the restaurant. The beach was fantastic. Water like bath water, plenty of fish to see and fairly nice sandy beaches (being Australian, we are a little spoilt for beaches!). The service in... More

The welcoming, friendly and efficient service was a highlight of our ten day stay in our beach front bungalow. The ocean breeze compensated for the lack of air conditioning and the screened windows kept the mosquitoes out, both of which made our summer stay more enjoyable. The hotel enjoys a superb location with wonderful snorkeling just a step away, and... More

What a great spot to enjoy paradise. All you need to recharge your batteries. Our comfortable unit was only a few metres from the water. The staff are friendly and helpful. The two restaurants on site are good value. Highly recommend if you want a no nonsense relaxing time.

With an picturesque, white sand, excellent beach and views at a large calm lagoon, Les Tipaniers is the postcard Moorea location. The best value in Moorea, with no over-water bungalows, it is not the Hilton crowd, but neither is it the backpacker mode. Our standard room was US $90, with frig. and hot-pot (for boiling water), and a ceiling fan... More

Very comfortable good sized rooms in bungalows, adequate bathrooms and absolutely superb location. Right on the beach with boat hire and nautical activities to hand.

You get what you pay literally. I regret choosing this hotel to spend my honey moon. I am glad I only booked for 3 days. Each day I wanted to be over. Dirty dishes, old furniture, no AC or TV. I would not return

I've always wanted to stay in one of the smaller hotels on Moorea. We chose Les Tipes for a 3-night stay before our Paul Gauguin cruise. The hotel was delightful. Mostly European tourists of various kinds, few Americans. Very pleasant grounds and beach, nice bungalows. Definitely a 3-star, not a 5-star, but we like this. It definitely had charm, and... More

This is the 3rd time my husband and I have stayed here because we love it. The staff are friendly and helpful, we've had great eating experiences in the restaurant at the front of the hotel and on the lagoon and you can't beat the location. You have a white sand beach straight out front and a beautiful lagoon to... More
