After much researching we chose this pension for the Moorea part of our French Polynesian holiday. It was a fantastic decision. Philippe and Corinne are very very good hosts. Everything from the welcome drinks and the relaxed welcome; explanations about the property, the meals and the snorkelling. We stayed for 7 nights and easily could have stayed for more. We were the only English first language guests during our stay and to make the most of your stay you need to be comfortable in an environment where many people prefer to speak English. Philippe and Corinne of course are always happy to translate and make sure you know what you need to know. The food is amazing as many posters have said. The cost of the meals is not something that was in our budget for every night but some days we would just buy baguette and cheese for lunch so that we could enjoy Corinne and Philippe's great hospitality. We were travelling with our 11 year old and he was welcomed wholeheartedly. One day we stepped out of our bungalow and Philippe had placed a kids bike outside for him to use in the garden. Another highlight was snorkelling at the end of the pier - every day we would see something new. While we had a car this is a great pension if you do not - there are good food options for lunch a short walk away and many restaurants will pick up for dinner if you want to go out.
I have rated this place 5 /5. It is not a 5 star property but it is good value; super clean; good sized rooms; delightful bathrooms; great snorkelling; great location; excellent hosts - this all adds up to a special experience. The rooms are fan cooled; reasonable airy and have excellent quality mosquito nets. My only complaint - and it is a preference - is that the bed was a little soft for my liking. Family friendly - yes - but I think if you had a wee child who needs a sand beach - this might not be perfect (there is some sand - not a white expanse) - but there is a great public beach a short walk away. We would absolutely recommend.this place. Luckily for us - unlike the European guests - French Polynesia is a relatively short flight away so the chances of returning are very real. I can't wait!
