My boyfriend and I stayed at Alice and Raphaels for three nights and it definitely was one of the most incredible places we ever stayed at. The motu is just beatiful. Surrounded by the reef on the one and the lagoon on the other side. Sitting on your veranda you see the main island and it is less than 10... More

We spent a few days at Pension Alice and Raphael for our honey moon and it was perfect for us. We were always looking for a relaxing place to rest our body and minds after a 2-day trip from Europe. We wanted a few days away from the world, no internet, no telephones, no noise, no traffic, nothing. This place... More

This remote eco resort is a fantastic getaway for those looking to get "off the grid". We stayed for a week at the Four Seasons followed by a week at Chez Alice at Raphael, both very different experiences but equally as good! This pension has access to two wonderful beaches, kayak, windsurf and stand up paddle options. Intimate, great service... More

I spent 3 nights at pension. Place and pension (very clean) exellent. I slept alone, no spiders. Peaceful, sun, sea, beach and excellent weather. Alice and Raphael is very nice and helpful couple. Alice is good cook, I had delicious fish. Hope I can come back some day... Paradise for a Finnish.

Given the repeated 5 star reviews on this site for this pension I am somewhat saddened to not to have shared that experience and surprised that others have also not had the same experience as I shall highlight below.  To start I should add that pension Alice et Raphael is run by the former manager / hosts of Blue Heaven...

We are really shocked and saddened to read 2 very bad comments (for one couple), you were so friendly!!! Why you didn't say anything during all your stay (3 nights)??? It was possible to change (call an hotel for exemple) if it was so HORRIBLE for you?! What a pity you didn't speak with us! More

My husband and I went to French Polynesia for our honeymoon and divided our time between Bora Bora and Moorea. We had a large luxury resort planned in Moorea for the second part of our trip, but knowing we wanted to relax and spend alone time together after the wedding, we looked to Bora Bora for secluded and intimate experience....
