We spent 4 nights at Au Phil Du Temps and we definitively recommend it!! The place is very clean and enjoys of its own private deck, where you can sunbathe and relax. There are also kayaks available for the guests and reaching the incredible motu in front of the tension is a great adventure. Muriel is an amazing chef and... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon trip. The place is very nice and comfortable, clean and with several services not common in guesthouses in French Polynesia as free room WiFi. But the island is not so attractive compared to others for our personal taste. The worst thing was that we felt excluded most of... More

I don't often write reviews, but felt compelled after staying at Au Phil du Temps. Muriel and Franck are the pension's new owners, and they have transformed the place into something incredible. Their hospitality is unmatched -- you won't find nicer pension owners on Taha'a. Every evening before dinner, Muriel and Franck invite all of their guests to join them... More

We stay at this pension only one night and it was too short! Frank and Muriel are incredibles. Frank can organise you the perfect excursion to the Jardin de Coraux (coral garden) and you should take the demi-pension option because Muriel is an amazing cook. She does her own yagourt! The sunset is... There is no words to say how... More

We stayed 4 nights at Au Phil du Temps and would recommend it to travelers looking to stay in a small, casual family run pension. Rene and Florence were wonderful hosts and did whatever they could to make our stay memorable. We stayed in the double room, rather than the bungalows. It was not luxury, but very comfortable and convenient.... More

I stayed in small ‘pensions’ on 8 islands in French Polynesia. “Au Phil du Temps” was the best – especially for someone travelling alone. René, an ex-engineer and naturalist, will take you to the most noteworthy places on the island and accompany you to the most breathtaking coral garden on a beautiful motu. He will spend as much time with... More

We stayed here in July 2013. The pension is situated just across the street from the water, with its own boathouse. We went on many lovely excursions with the owners, first going around the island in a 4x4 to visit some villages, vantage points, and an organic vanilla plantation. The owners are very knowledgeable about the history and culture of... More
