We choose this for its location. Next to Matira beach, it has two grocery stores nearby, one almost opposite, the other a 5 minute walk in the same direction as the first. Village Temanuata is next door to the Intercontinental hotel, which hosts some evening entertainment. We popped next door on a Friday night to enjoy a drink and see... More

This is the cutest, most perfect little hotel. My bungalow was beautiful, comfy bed, ceiling fan, big shower. It's at the most beautiful beach in bora bora, you can even choose between the private beach and public beach. Both are amazing!! The colors of this water... Crazy. There is a supermarket on the other side of the road, extremely convenient.... More

Stay here! The location is ideal for quiet, serene moments as well as for easily jumping into tours and activities. Jacques is the most wonderful welcoming host - and helpful with local tips.

This spot is perfect for any type of traveller that is willing to not spend their life savings on a hotel. You will miss the A/C but get a beach side bungalow and you won't notice. There are ceiling fans in the bungalows and additional fans in some. the bungalows are equipped with fridges, kettles, some have fuller kitchenettes. We... More

This place is ideal for those who want to self cater in affordable accommodation in a great location on Borabora. Our unit was equipped with microwave, hot plate, fridge, pots, plates and cutlery which was great. Don't know that all units have a kitchen though. Not a flash resort, but great for those who don't mind something a bit more... More

From New Zealand I found this fantastic place via google maps. I couldn't ask for more for this gorgeous little cosy bungalow establishment set on such a beautiful private beach and a strategic location where the Matira beach (world famous) is right behind the motel.

We arrived in the early evening and the first night were concerned about mosquitoes and could not get the fan to operate at better than a slow speed. I had picked the place and thought my wife was going to kill me in my sleep for the choice the first night. Hot and stifling. We finally abandoned the mosquito net... More
