The weather wasn't great when we arrived in Moorea, but our stay at Linareva more than made up for the mediocre weather. First, we were offered a choice between two units. Both were charming and immaculate, but we chose the one that offered a little more privacy. After checking in and grabbing our luggage from our rental car, they surprised us with a plate full of organic passion fruit, star fruit, papaya, and awesome avocados from their garden along with two fruit cocktails sitting on the table on our deck (see the picture). This put us in such a wonderful mood! The setting is beautiful, and they offer so many free amenities like kayaks and bikes. These were ideal for exploring the lagoon and getting to the store in nearby Haapiti for fresh baguettes and pineapple and banana turnovers in the morning. Even the black tip and nurse sharks that hang out at the end of the dock every evening are friendly! We built up the courage to snorkel at the same spot when there was a single nurse shark sleeping at the bottom, and there is an abundance of colorful fish and coral. The kitchenette was also great for us because we were on a bit of a budget. We bought some fresh tuna at a local fishmonger and prepared our own thon rouge for one of our dinners. For our last night, we decided to indulge with their catered dinner on our private deck. It was fantastic! The chef is from PK Zero, one of the best restaurants on the island. Most importantly, everyone who works at Linareva genuinely cares about your experience. They answered all of our questions with a smile, no matter how much we pestered them.
