We are on our honeymoon from Australia exploring the different Islands in TAHITI when we booked this lodge and as we have stayed in overwater bungalows before we thought because it had such great reviews lets stay here and in no way am i trying to discourage you from staying here but it just wasn't for us. I would suggest if you are on your honeymoon don't stay in garden bungalows.. The studios look like they are a the way to go. We however did stay in garden bungalow 2 for 3 nights and were supposed to stay in the garden bungalow 1 for the other 2 nights but had to check out because it was way to small for my 6.5 husband and this is what we thought.
Gerard the owner was amazing he picked us up from dock on arrival showed is all the places you could eat/drink around the lodge even when we couldn't check into the other bungalow he offered some alternate accommodation suggestions and when we booked somewhere else he took us there both free of charge).
There is Free
Laundry (which Gerard does for you)
Its walking distance to restaurants, super market and food trucks.
No air-conditioning in garden bungalows and it was really hot during the day and night
A lot of bugs
Not near beach (its about a 35min bike ride)
It's perfect for families and groups.
