Certainly that's not a place for everyone. But certainly one that gets to Mangaia is not looking for luxury or glamour, but if you are looking for an authentic atmosphere this is the place. It is not an accommodation for tourists, home to almost only local or staff that is there for job, this means that it's an excellent opportunity... More

Accommodations are very limited on Mangaia. Fortunately, Babe's Place is great. The rooms were simple but clean with solar hot water which worked well. The annex rooms have small shady outside patios with easy chairs which were perfect for reading. The full board meals were excellent with plenty of variety and fresh fish, fruit and vegetables from the local fields.... More

This was a great place to stay on Mangaia, even though there are few options on the island. Indeed I was the only tourist (there were a couple of engineers staying, working on the new wharf). The stay includes full board, as there are no restaurants and I also took food of my own (Easter Eggs as gifts went down... More

The hospitality and friendliness provided by Babe and his team at Babe's Place were outstanding in all respects. The 2 rooms in the main house are spacious and airy. Each room in the main house has a King-size and single bed, along with a dresser and wardrobe. Babe's also has separate units set apart from the main homestead. We appreciated... More

This was my second stay here with the first being in 2004. This place is always clean with hospitable staff. Two of the rooms are in need of a refresh as they are starting to show some age. The bed was harder than I remember but being out in the middle of the Pacific, I can understand this. The food,... More

Babe's Place is the ideal accommodation for a visit to Mangaia. The room and facilities are clean and relatively spacious. Best of all is the hospitality of the hosts (in our case Doreen and Ura), who prepare delicious Pacific meals and go beyond the call of duty in helping their guests. The tarrif is very reasonable and includes transfers from... More

Babe's is one of only a few places to stay on Mangaia, and from speaking to locals, probably the nicest. Mangaia itself is so laid back it is horizontal, so don't expect hotel accommodation anywhere. Babe's offers fairly spacious, clean rooms with private bathroom, a large communal dining and lounging area. I was the only guest when I stayed, so... More
