“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

We (my boyfriend and I) stayed at Chez Rosine in September 2011 for 5 nights. We haven´t actually met Rosine but were welcomed by her daughter, Martine.The view is stunning and if you are lucky, Manu (Rosine´s son in law) takes you on a free boatride to the Coral Gardens, shark and stingray feeding and the motu! Or you can be dropped off at the motu and relax in the hammocks, buy drinks, swim out to the boat and snorkel for Manta rays! (haven´t seen any though, unfortunately).
The house is lovely, the decorations are great.
The only downside: It looks kinda shabby from the outside, but close to big hotels = thus close to events in the evening, make up for it. Also walls dont go to the ceiling and dorm room has no walls at all, divided by curtains.

Anyway, great stay at that place!!!!!!

Room Tip: Double room downstairs next to showers offers more privacy than double room upstairs next to dorm.

As a place to stay, we were very satisfied. The room was just what we needed. The location was good and there were excellent kitchen facilities. For internet wifi, you will need to pay online by credit card, though that applies to all of French Polynesia. Transfer to and from the airport is not included in the price though was still pretty good.

Though I have to mention the tour advertised by the pension and run also by the owner. The tour would usually be excellent too. Though the owner seems to have an arrangement with a Japanese tour company and we were combined with a large Japanese group tour group on the same boat, meaning there were far too many people and everything had to be for them with very little time for the 2 of us. I advise anyone to check how many people are on this tour before joining. There should only be a few people, not combined with a large tour group.

A very nice pension with a lovely beach: you can borrow for free a kayak to go to an awesome snorkle spot (the aquarium). People are nice and helpful, the pick-up from the airport is well organized.

The kitchen and bathrooms are clean, the house is well decorated. Don't expect a huge room there is basically only a bed in it but you won't spend much time in your room anyway. There is a computer to be used and Internet acess card can be bought.

Well located: restaurants and snacks around.

Will definitely go back there.
