I have written multiple reviews of Fare Miti, which we visit several times a year, and I can't stop raving about this place! We just returned from a two month trip to French Polynesia and again stayed in our favorite bungalow on the lovely beach at this very special pension. Celine and Laurent, the proprietors, continue to improve and renovate the property, and every time we arrive there is something new and special. They have acquired new beach chairs available to guests, and have built a lovely picnic area on the beach. The big tree has been groomed so that it still provides nice shade on the beach but does not obstruct the view of the lagoon.
The unique services provided by these proprietors make this pension very special. They will purchase a baguette or coconut bread or pain chocolate each morning for their guests, ordered the evening before, for a very minimal price. They also provide a variety of local restaurant menus, which they will order for you and deliver to your bungalow whenever you choose -- this is a fantastic service for their guests! They take a photo at sunset every night and post it on the Moorea Fare Miti Facebook page -- a very nice idea! The reception area provides a number of necessities for sale as a convenience to guests as well.
The location of Moorea Fare Miti is the best we have found on Moorea. The beach is long and clean; the bungalows face west for beautiful sunsets; a variety of small groceries and restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance.
Improvements are ongoing, as aways... New kitchen amenities were being ordered while we were there. We expect to return in March 2013 for an equally wonderful visit!
It is suggested that you book early if you want to stay here -- the property is full most of the time, especially during weekends and school holidays. It is a very family-friendly place as well, so if you do not enjoy the sound of happy children playing on the beach, you should find another location. For us, however, Moorea Fare Miti is PERFECT!
