We were here for four days and three nights. The owners and their assistant could not have been more wonderful. We fished with Jean Jacques; bought pearls from Dahlia's sister; dove with Top Dive and all in all had a fabulous time. The bungalows are right on the lagoon and spotlessly clean. The food was delicious and plentiful Classic French...

We spent almost 4 days on this dreamy location on the incredible island of Fakarava. <3 This has been one of our best stay in our honeymoon (we visited Tahiti, Fakarava, Rangiroa, Bora Bora ad Maupiti). The island is a true paradise: you live inside a nature's masterpiece. Everything seems to be painted because such beauty and colors can only...

We spent 8 days here. I was kinda worried that Noone spoke any english, but it was absolutely no problem at all. The friendliness of the staff help so much overcoming that obstacle. The rooms were spacey and clean. The bathroom looks like it's outside even though it was inside. They have a day trip to this place called the...

Had a great time on Fakarava, and loved to stay at Pension Vaiama Village. We stayed in one of the three bungalows, located on the beach with a beautiful view over the turquoise lagoon. I give the pension top score, because of the hospitality of the owners. Though the staff didn't speak english , they were really friendly and provided...

From the moment we were picked up the airport and throughout our stay, our hosts (Mme Dahlia and her son Geoffrey) keenly helped us with information and many practicalities and made us feel warmly welcome. Dahlia spoiled us with her five-star culinary talents. The menu was varied and provided us with mouthwatering memories of “Poisson cru au lait de coco”...

Spending a week at Vaiama Village on the wonderful atol of Fakarava was a fantastic experience and one of the highlights of my travel around French Polynesia. It was a great pleasure to stay with such nice, friendly and helpful people like Dahria and her family. The bungalows, located right by the limpid, turquoise blue lagoon, show lots of Polynesian...
