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

There are no liveried flunkies to help you with your luggage, there is no TV in the rooms and there is no AC but .......... 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. Easy swimming (if a bit shallow until you get a... More

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

We absolutely loved the island of Moorea. We stayed in Les Tipaniers for 4 nights and thought it was great. The garden bungalow was clean and very picturesque. However the kitchen was lacking in lots of utensils, a kettle and a toaster! We could hardly cook a meal. There are free bikes that you can use for an hour at... More

It is clean, but it needs to be updated, the beds are not that comfortable, and the bathroom is from 20 years ago, and mosquitos are around, no net on door. The restaurant is fantastic. The attention at the front desk is also good, and flexible. Lots of free hens are roosters in the property, I did not like that.

We loved this hotel! Best location on the island! Not fancy, but really cute. Very clean, nice to have a kitchen to make coffee and breakfast! Beautiful beach with fabulous swimming. You must go out and swim with the sharks not too far from the hotel. Go for a nice walk to the store and pick up things to snack... More

Hotel was okay, rooms subpar, but views were beautiful and restaurant was quite good. Our sleep was comfortable, as there was a nice breeze at night through the window. The island itself was amazing and my fiancé and I enjoyed exploring it on our scooter and stopping off for drinks or lunch at the high end hotels :). We werent... More

I had to move around Moorea a couple of times before I found this area which to me is the best. There is a shopping mall and some restaurants within walking distance, and the private beach-area just looks picture perfect along with its immediate possibilities for snorkeling. The prices are not all that bad, and the bungalow had its own... More
