“Its so nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We stayed in the guest house ariitere for three nights. It was one of the best accomodations we had in Tahiti. Juanito, the owner, is such a good host. The bungalows are really nice and tahitian-like. Included in the price is free breakfast, bicycles, kanus, airport pick-up. You can rent a car there much cheaper than at one of the chains and take a tour around the island in one day. One night Juanito organised food from one of the roulottes for all of us and we had a really nice evening with all the other guests. Juanito is really helpful in everything. He gives tips about the island, but knows also a lot about the other islands. It is only a short walk to the main centre and the beach.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2011

My 6 year old son and I spent 6 days at Pension Ariitere, Huahine in early January 2011. If you are interested in staying at a small family pension on Huahine for a quiet, laid back, family atmosphere, then this is it. We had an air conditioned room which was clean and well presented, with kettle and fridge, although we wished we had one of the bunglows that were fully equipped with stove etc. There were however cooking facilities available to us by the pool. The pool was great as it was really hot while we were there. The beach is a short cycle or walk away. Cycles are free at the Pension.
Juanito the owner also hires out scooters and cars at a lower cost than if you rented them in Fare so we took advantage of a scooter for a day (4000XPF)-you can easily get around Huahine in 1 day.
There is one well stocked supermarket in Fare and a couple of other tourist shops and if you dont want to cook there are a couple of restaurants or the roulottes down at the Quay in Fare where we got a huge meal for 1000 XPF. There is a small market on the quay everyday too for fruit and vegetables etc.
Pension Ariitere and Huahine is definitely the place to go if you want a quiet, peaceful family orientated holiday, and have a limited budget. We paid 7000XPF a night, and although I had been told that my son's tariff was to be paid at the pension-I had paid for my accomodation in advance-they didnt charge him at all. The tariff also included breakfast and there are free transfers to the airport.
Juanito is a great host and full of good travel information about the island. We had a great time!

We visited three islands in French Polynesia (Tahiti, Bora Bora and Huahine) for a period of three weeks, staying in various places. Pension Ariitere was by far the best place we stayed. The owners, Juanito and Iva, were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms were unbelievably well equipped and organized (including TV, fridge, stove, microwave oven, all kitchen utensils, mosquito nets, mosquito bats and many more), the place was absolutely clean and tidy, the price very reasonable. Every morning we were supplied with fresh bread, had everything we needed in our fridge to make a full breakfast which we could enjoy in our verandah in front of a crystal clear pool. Five minutes walk to a superb white sand beach. Bicycles provided for all, free of charge. In all, the perfect place to stay.
