I booked this trip for early July, and Moorea was my first stop on the agenda as a solo traveller. I thought that a backpackers would be a fantastic, cheap and enjoyable place to meet other travellers, and to enjoy the moorean culture on a budget. Boy was I wrong. I arrived at approximately 2pm in the afternoon and immediately... More

There may be better places for bungalows, but when it comes to solo budget accommodation this is the place ! The price is just unbeatable. Don't expect 5 stars though, it's just a bed in a large dorm with no AC. I met great people there, and everyone was really happy about the place. We all hangout together on the... More

If you are staying in the dorms - don't be mislead by the bungalow reviews. It's an altogether different affair. The 'dorm' is basically a woven palm floor above the reception area. There is no wall ocean side, so whilst you can see the sea, you are also open to all weather elements and bugs. There are no mosquito nets... More

Stayed at Pension Motu Iti for 10 nights in June 2013: High quality for a low price (there are nice hotels with bungalows over the water in these islands but they are [very] expensive; Pension Motu Iti is a great alternative to still be close to the water). We stayed in a beach bungalow for 8 nights: what a view,... More

It is a good place for the price ... It is clean and the food is good. It is not luxury but the rooms are ok. The tv is there but it was not really working due to the 'connections' . The mosquito net is not the best so take your own if you are not into chemicals also provided... More

We stayed at Motu Iti for 4 nights in a garden bungalow. The room was nice and clean for its price. But don't expect more than a room to sleep: the food in the restaurant is not really good. And the service from the lady there is poor: she didn't give us any information upon arrival. We had to ask... More

Positives: - very low price - nice beach of Hilton hotel nearby:) Negatives: - lot of mosquitoes (bring your own net), long distance to airport - terrible bathroom - very expensive internet connection (in Hilton (even if you are not staying there) you pay 1250 XFP for 24 hours) I can not recommend a stay here.

We came here for the first time in November 2004 for 3 a week stay and were immediately charmed by this little paradise! There are five very nice and spacious bungalows (three with direct sea view and two in the beautiful garden) and a nice dorm. Both the owner and the staff of Motu Iti are very friendly, helpful and... More

I had a really good time at Motu Iti. It is in a nice surrounding directly at the beach with a nice view to the ocean. Over here you see a lot of colorful fishes when you snorchel or when you take the kayak or just when you sit in the beachfrontrestaurant or on the wooden overwaterbungalow. The very friendly... More
