Fare Vaimoana is a lovely hotel, in a stunning location with it's own beach. The rooms are very well kept, and spacious, and all include a fridge - essential in the heat of Moorea, if only to keep your wine chilled! The staff only a little English, but unlike some other places on the island, this doesn't stop them from... More

The location is perfect with nice white sand beach and lagoon access just in front of the bungalow. You can encounter very often ray fish and small sharks in the lagoon in front. Bungalows are comfortable but in this location we didn't care too much for the room. Friendly personal that can give you good advices for the island tours.

I spent two nights here in early January. I should have read the reviews better. I chose Vai Moana because I thought it offered rustic Tahitian simplicity. Wrong. I think a better word would be 'cheap & nasty', or to be kind a Moorean Fawlty Towers. I was in the middle of travelling around Polynesia for 2 months, & have... More

I was at Fare Vai Moana for 2 nights. I stayed in a garden bungalow, travelling alone. The bungalow was bascially clean, except for a dead roach and ants throughout the place. The bathroom was clean, only one towel was provided, so you need to bring your own beach towel. Only a small bar of handsoap is provided, so you... More

This beautiful little hotel is a bit far from the ferry but well worth the travel! Make sure when you get off the ferry you don't linger but go straight to the bus ($3 / person). If you wait too long you will miss it and the bus only comes every 3 hours. A Taxi will cost $40 - $60... More

It seemed ok when we first got there. i had a hard time finding info on the internet- but managed to find a little on the forums. First off- it's basic bungalow. No AC, but clean rooms, with clean bathrooms and showers. The beds were very low to the ground and a foam mattress. No mosquito nets and the fan... More
