I was worried about hearing other comments but when I stayed at this place, I had good experiences. Receptionist and security were kind and nice. I stayed at this hotel one day but I compared than other place, this hotel was really old bungalow style. It was comfortable. They have a security box, kitchen (gas), refrigerator, a fan (No AC), in a room. Room was clean, but bathroom was little bit old fashion. They don't recommend drinking tap water so we went to buy them near hotel. They have parking lot but hotel side was small. They have bigger parking mountain side. Beach was exceptional.

I didn’t stay at this hotel but used their beachfront kayak rental service. They rentals are extremely reasonably priced (singles: 500 cpf/hr; doubles: 1000 cpf/hr). You can easily reach the Motu Fareone and Motu Tiahura from the beach (about 15-25 min depending on your skill level) and you can reach the ‘secret’ spot where you can swim with the small black tip reef sharks and pink stingrays. A couple of 2hr rentals or are ne 3 hr rental could suffice unless you want to hang around the small beachfronts on the Motu’s. To access park across the hotel (south side of the beltway) and walk along the left edge of the hotel entrance. You’ll find a security guard at the gate. Just tell him you’re there to rent a kayak and you’ll be on your way. Bring your own snorkel and fins or you can rent those too.

I was going to the restaurant for sunset. They charge 15000f ($15) to access the public beach. They tell you it’s public but you have to pay to walk through their property. Very small beach and not worth it. The receptionist tells you the bar will give you 15000 credit to your bar bill. But that was not the case. The whole experience felt dishonest.

The bungalow was sizable, clean, and well-appointed. While there was no air conditioning, the fan made the room comfortable for sleeping. The best is that the beach was just a few steps away, with good snorkeling and a nice restaurant. In addition, the staff was helpful and friendly. One caveat - not sure there is a comfortable chair anywhere. Beach lounge chairs are the plastic legless variety that sit on the ground - a pain for anyone over 50. The chairs in with the room are wooden slats that become uncomfortable after a few minutes. Even the chairs in the bar were so low to the ground, you couldn't see the great lagoon view!

We arrived exhausted and on a rainy day... We initially felt a bit bummed with the "simplicity" of the bungalow but we quickly warmed up to the beautiful place. The following days the sun showed up and illuminated the beach in its full glory. Absolutely breath taking. The bungalows are not high end by any means... Very little cooking utensils, a chair literally broke under me, very thin mattresses, tiles breaking... But it was all ok. This place is not for the honeymooners looking for glamour but quite perfect for families with young kids who love the beach, snorkeling and relaxing. We really enjoyed the beach restaurant as well.

We have stayed here before on many occasions. The last time was 2 yrs ago. Internet was only available from reception, not in our fare or bungalow. When we went back last weekend I asked if WIFI had improved. I was told that "yes, we have upgraded and WIFI is now available in more areas, you will see". I was relieved as had work to do using my laptop. Well things were worse! No connection at all.There was absolutely no effort made to explain to me why or what could be done. Very Tahitian, but still! So I did without and did other work instead that did not require WIFI. I was lucky that in 3 days there were no urgent messages. Whilst the bungalows have been upgraded and the place is spotless, when you pay 16,000xpf or AUD$220 a night, the minimum is WIFI and a solution. We won't be returning here unless things change. Which is a shame, but that is life!

When bicycling around the island I stopped there for lunch. I was there when the restaurant opened. The couple in front of me were not asked if they had a reservation. I was asked and when I informed them that I was alone they told me there were no free tables. I was offered to have lunch on the terrace next to the restaurant, which I accepted. After this I was completely ignored by the staff. After a while I left, without having been allowed to order food and drinks. Why did’nt they just tell me ”We won’t serve you any lunch because you are single”?. It would have saved me some time. It was no great loss to be rejected because the menu was limited. And they had no Wi-fi.

While I have visited Mo’orea numerous times in the past this was my first time at this resort. We stayed in Bungalow 8 located in the tropical garden. The bungalow had two bedrooms with a double bed and three single beds, kitchen, a large bathroom, inside and outside dining room tables and a relaxing sitting area on the patio. A very short walk through the garden brought us to the beach and the restaurant. Another restaurant was under reconstruction. The beach is fairly large. You have to walk a bit in shallow water to get to deeper water. However, the shallow water is perfect for children and the very mature adults. There are plenty of activities available in the area for those that are interested. The restaurant has an ample outside sitting area with comfortable chairs - a perfect place to enjoy a chilled maitai at sunset while listening to the birds nesting in nearby coconut palms. While the menu is limited it includes all the traditional fish dishes e.g., sashimi and raw tuna ‘cooked’ in lime juice with vegetables and coconut milk. The staff was lovely and welcoming. Thank you for looking after us. We were very comfortable at Tipaniers and could have stayed much longer. Usually there is a bus corresponding with the ferry from Papeete. However, I recommend renting a car as Tipaniers is located some distance from the ferry harbor and the airport. If you are looking for a real Polynesian experience - this is it. I highly recommend Tipaniers.

This place has in fact only 2 stars. That shows in the bungalows. They are ok - but look used. Crooked cupboards, dents in the furniture and holes in the screens that should protect from the mosquitos. In the bathroom, the Fare has no windows - only screens on top of the shower - so you can hear everything from the outside and everyone can hear you from the inside. There was no shower gel or conditioner provided - only hand soap and shampoo. I bought shower gel at the reception. The entry door to the fare is just one door - no extra screens there. I did not use my kitchen - the fridge smelled bad - but there is restaurants on the hotel grounds. One at the beach - where you get breakfast (I would not recommend the included breakfast, it is not worth the 20 Euro it costs. Just have coffee and eggs) and one right at the entrance of the hotel. The food was ok - but not great. It sometimes looked like it was pre-prepared and then heated and served. Prices were reasonable, though. Other than that: You had to "borrow" beach towels - and deposit 1000 cfp francs to really give it back. And the same with the key for the safe and the bikes. You could use them to ride into the small village - 5mins away. The staff was mostly very helpful and friendly. The beach was really nice - but open to everyone. So it could become crowded at times. The island itself is really beautiful - the hotel could use a complete makeover. The WiFi only works at the reception, not in the bungalows.

First off the location of this hotel is just unbelieveable. The beach, palm trees and crystal blue water are literally breathtaking. The restaurant over the the beach is even more of a treat. The beach provides many options for water sport activities including a self guided tour to where you can swim with the sharks and sting rays. The staff was excellent. The folxs bay the front desk and the folxs at the beach front restaurant where outstanding. They went over and beyond and just so amazingly hospitable and accommodating. Concerning the accommodations, they are pretty basic. I noticed that some of the bungalows have been upgraded and others haven’t which must mean they are slowly upgrading them all. I peeked at the upgraded ones and they are definitely looking fresh and new. The accommodations were a tiny bit more basic than I would have liked, but honestly the staff was so superb I would come back just for them. Lastly I think the hotel location is ideal. You are a 10 minute walk to a public beach, a small shopping and restaurant area and a few other hotels.
