A good mix of dorm room, private rooms and private cabanas, this is a good spot. Sits in a nice bay. Very easy access to town. (Uturoa) Friendly staff. Good size community kitchen. And has a pool, a rarity for pensions at this price. I recommend.

We stayed in a pension in Maupiti in worse physical condition, but at least that owner tried to go the extra mile for us and had a lot of heart.... More

We stayed at Pension Tepua for five nights and we loved it. Joe met us at the airport, took us and then collected us, from every tour we did. He was extremely genuine and very helpful. He made us cocktails in the evenings as we propped up the bar prior to going out for dinner at the local hotel. The... More

My wife, 7-year daughter and I spent a week at Pension Tepua, a small pension on the island of Raiatea in French Polynesia. We had our original travel plans fall through after we arrived in Papeete, and make a booking directly with the property with no prior knowledge of what we were booking. We were absolutely delighted when we arrived... More
