I had mixed feelings about Papahani. On the plus side: - Maupiti is really lovely island and pretty; - the pension is on a beautiful motu, bordered by a pretty sandy beach (rare in Polynesia where beaches are often made of coral); - the water is deep enough in front of the pension to go for a swim, and you...
