The hosts are very friendly, the huts are top notch and have air con. Breakfast and dinner are a delight! Very authentic cuisine and good company from the hosts with interesting insights in French Polynesia. They even drive you to the main island or to 'manta point' for free. Snorkeling on the outside reef is a few minutes walk away... More

We spent 3 nights here in 2010, and really enjoyed it. The hosts are wonderful! The best poisson cru! We enjoyed snorkelling and kayaking in the lagoon. For us, Mauritius was a much nicer destination than, say Bora Bora - more authentic French Polynesian experience.

BOOK IN ADVANCE! This is the BEST place to stay in Maupiti! The only "hotel" type place. They offer excursions organized right there. A beautiful beach. And centralized area. AMAZING hosts!! This truly is the only place to stay in Maupiti. It is well worth booking your trip around the availability!!! Air conditioner

Everything about this place was immaculate. Our gracious hosts, the location on the motu, the stunning meals, lagoon etc. Of all the places visited in FP, this one stood out as the best. You really feel like part of the family with Josephine and Gerald and learn much about the way of life there. Thank you so much!

I have been two days in Maupiti and must say that the care that Josephine and Gerald take about all guest is incredible!. They share breakfast and lunch or dinner, if you prefer and they spend all time you need to explain details about life and sites in Maupiti ant the rest of the archipielag It is a remarkable attitude...

We were only able to spend two of our three planned nights with José and Gerald due to a change in ferry scheduling; we suggest timing your stay in coordination with the airline flights, since we had to come on a day they were flying. But we wished we had been able to stay here a week or more. Gerald... More

Poe Iti is located at the motu with almost no people - we we able to walk on long white sand beaches for 1 or 2 hours without seeing a single person - it was the most romantic place we have ever seen - and we were in many top destinations in the world. Further "miracle" is their lagoon. It... More

Maupiti is as wonderful as the reviews describe.. non-commercialized and very remote. No resorts here to ruin the pristine waterfronts, just pure nature and tranquility. The motus are even more remote and there is no development at all other than a few pensions and a few private homes here and there. If you are looking for lots of organized activities... More

In keeping with its name, this pension is a true pearl. Gerald and Jose make you feel so welcome, and Yoyo is a fantastic cook. Their new website gives a much better view of the bungalows and main dining room, all very comfortable and spacious. Hot water and air conditioning are luxuries on the motus, which makes this a very... More
