Stayed here one night, and it was already enough for me. As mentioned before, yes good location, next to few restaurants/snacks/stores and as well the only public beach in Bora Bora, Matira beach. You have the Intercontinental hotel about 5 minutes walk, you can eat + drink there, it’s much nicer than here. Anyway, I booked via booking.com 5 000XPF (had to pay extras $ for taxes/breakfast/transferts), good deal yes. But if you booked directly with them, it’s gonna be much more expensive, 14 700 XPF for the same bungalow and it’s not worth it at all ! Our bungalow was very basic but it had small holes in the roof, so small pieces of the roof was falling on the bed, thank God, it was not raining. The owner said; ''Ah you booked on booking.com, that’s what you got'' ...There was only a fan on the top of the bungalow, no A/C, so it was kind of hot and humid in there. No TV. Cleanliness was just ok. They deposit your breakfast in the morning on the table outside, it’s instant coffee that you got to make it yourself. It comes with juice, bread, croissants, butter, jam and fruits. The only nice thing was a small private beach that they have with white sand. As many other hotels/pensions in French Polynesia, they don’t provide free wifi, you need to buy a wifi pass with them, 500 XPF for 1h. The owner thinks only about making money, activities here are very expensive, rentals as well. Book your rental car with Europcar, they come to pick you up, they offer a reasonable price and service and they are very friendly. In my opinion, as a owner, I will be ashamed to rent these old bungalows to people. He should demolished everything and construct from the beginning, brand new. After all, I do no suggest to stay here unless, you don’t mind about staying into an old bungalow from the ’80. Next time, I’ll spend more money and stay elsewhere in Bora Bora.
