“big deception”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The owner tell us that he pick us up at the port shuttle, but he didn´t come, we had to take a taxi
and she never said Sorry
The pension is located in a very horrible place, you can´t see the sea, you are in front of a petrol station. They don´t help for advice to places to go.
When we asked for password for wifi she said she didn´t remeber, just other person in the pension gave it to us.
When we asked for the key of the room she said it was lost, incredible.
No mosquito net, when it is necessary
I can´t undestand how the other review are so good.
Don´t stay here, go to Matira Beach where you have 2 pension, nono pension and robert ina pension

I had opportunity to stay here for 5 days. Noni is a very nice family pension with excellent service, nothing to complain about this pension and I love this family that runs this pension. Specially Ms. Gloria.
Good location to everything from boat dock to roulette, restaurant or market near there in Bora Bora.
You can rent a scooter or bicycle to tour the island yourself and take time to enjoy it. Matira beach is a must visit when you get to Bora Bora

My husband and I spent three nights at this pension and we really felt at home and almost part ‎of the family. We therefore highly recommend this place, which is also very well located: 10-‎‎15 min walking to Vaitape (wharf city), where you can find stores, rent a bike, travel ‎agencies… The rooms are clean and apart from the bathroom there is a kitchen and a small ‎place outside at the back where you can hang your laundry. Breakfast is also tasty: coffee, tea, ‎baguettes with butter and jam and fresh fruit. The closest supermarket is located 5 min away ‎from the pension. Also a very good Chinese restaurant (Le Panda d’Or) and expensive but ‎tasty French-Polynesian (St. James) restaurant can be reached with a 5 min walking. At this ‎pension you get a lot for your money.‎

Attractive and practical layout. Good little kitchen (no kettle) - very hot water in bathroom. Characterful, cheerful, friendly and generous owner and husband who even gave us a round trip of the island. Good location close to Vaitape.

The Noni Pension is a fabulous bed and breakfast establishment in Vaitape, Bora Bora. The owners and friends are superb and make you feel like part of the family from the minute you set foot in it. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They are true Polynesians in every respect, charming, friendly and so hospitable. Do not be shocked if you are invited to dine with them on your first night as they did with me. I felt quite humbled by their generosity.

Supermarkets and other shops are close by with a range of goods to satisfy most people. It is close to the wharf so transfers are quick and easy.The roulottes are excellent for good and cheap food. The Noni is clean and well kept and you can trust the proprietors to take care of your belongings while you are there.

This is one place you will find hard to leave. Elina, Teva and Mammi - thank you! xxx

The most welcome iv felt in any place I stayed. Me and my friend stayed here while we were un Bora Bora. They make you feel like one if the family, and are always willing to go the extra mile to help you book any tours.
Highly recommend staying here if going to Bora Bora!

Simple, but pure Polynesian hospitality! These guys were fantastic, serving great breakfast, recommending good eating options. We felt like one of the family. Bora Bora has little to recommend to the independent traveler, but if you do end up there, go to the Pension Noni and let Mami take care of you.
The Panda D'Or a couple of blocks down is a must-see (go to the take out window around the side)
No internet access, but there is a good hotspot at the visitor center downtown, which is a 5-10 minute walk from the Pension.
