We rented the local bungalow with ceiling fan in December while our friends rented the bungalow with air conditioning. The bungalow with ceiling fan has its roof separated from the walls to let the air flow so you get the insects and bugs coming into it and you can hear all the noises coming from outside, especially the MANY roosters...

We stayed for six nights with Fabienne and her son, Baptiste. And the two dogs and several cats! We had a cute cabin, overlooking the sea and gardens, which was small but more than adequate, with a few French touches (eg distressed paintwork). There was a tiny kitchen (a bit too tiny really), a small living room, and a good... More

I had a pretty cottage with sitting room, dining terrace and bathroom downstairs and spacious bedroom above, with additional double and single bed. Small, but adequate kitchen. Sun loungers on cottage terrace as well as at pool. Pool is a bonus (beaches nearby are not good for swimming), but property loses the sun about 4pm. Need a car if you... More

Loved Fare Arana, Fabienne was fantastic. Perfect host. She even did our laundry and and returned it to us dried and folded. Pool was great and her son and daughter were brilliant being the perfect example to their mother working away for the family business. Recommended to anyone wanting to stay in Mo'orea.

My husband and I stayed at Fare Arana on Moorea for the final four nights of our honeymoon in French Polynesia. When we arrived at Fare Arana, we had just got back on a flight from the Tuamoutu Islands, a hot ferry across from Papeete and a drive around the island in our rental car - so we were very... More

If you are looking for something different on Moorea, Fare Arana is worth considering. My husband, son age 4 at the time and I all loved it here. We split our time half here and half at an OWB at the Sheraton Moorea, and both were great experiences and a neat way to combo a vacation without more air travel.... More
