To echo many of the other positive reviews, Pension Bounty is a great option for Rangiroa. Alain is a fantastic host; he handles your airport transfers, arranges any excursion or restaurant reservation, and is on hand for anything you need. We enjoyed a wonderful meal cooked by him one night as well. Rooms are spotless and comfortable, the kitchenette with fridge is handy, and each has a nice-sized deck for lounging. Breakfast is typical with bread, jams, fruit, etc., but Alain will also cook eggs to your liking. The location is great - a couple minutes' walk to a nice stretch of beach by the Kia Ora, and it's also not a bad walk (or quick bike ride) if you want to grab a snack or some groceries. Hopefully we will one day visit Rangiroa again, and if we do it will be at the Pension Bounty!

Extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Location is good and bikes are available so you can ride to the nearest "snack" and magasin. Great spot to relax before and after your dives. Alain is a great cook and very hospitable. In addition, all housekeeping staff were very kind and do a wonderful job. Merci beaucoup.

We stayed at Pension Bounty for our diving week in Rangiroa. Pension Bounty is a really nice place to stay for many reasons.
The owner, Alain, is very helpful and can really help you to get the most from your holiday with day-trip suggestions and any kind of help.
The location is great: just 5 minutes with the bike (offered for free by the pension) and you'll be in front of Tiputa pass. The location is very convenient for most diving centers and the beach with the stunning lagoon is just 1 minute walk.
The rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious (I totally disagree with Lonely planet review) with a lot of light, a safe box and a kitchen. We used the kitchen quite a lot because we are vegetarian and there are not real vegetarian options in Rangiroa. With 5 minutes with the bike you can reach a new quite big supermarket (big for rangiroa standards). The terrace in front of each room is a good place for relaxing.
For breakfast you'll find fresh bread and a good choice of meals: toasts, marmelade, eggs, yoghurt, cheese.
Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed with Alain at Pension Bounty for 3 nights. We were greeted at the airport by Alain and driven to the Pension. Alain was a very nice man and made our stay very welcoming. He made plans for us and actually went diving with us at Six Passengers one day as well. He always went out of his way and was a very good cook. He made breakfeast earlier due to our dive schedule. The Pension grounds are very well kept and the garden is amazing. We didn't get a chance to use the bikes but they are very nice bikes. The rooms are very clean and very nice. They seemed to have every amenity that was needed. The rooms have no air conditioner but kept cool most nights with the fan. I got hot on one night, but I am used to cranking down the AC at home, so don't let that detour you. The beach is right up a little road and it was beautiful. It is actually the beach for Kia Ora, where we had lunch and dinner at their bar and restaraunt. Rangiroa had AMAZING diving, and we only got to dive two days. The island itself is beautiful and we should have spent more then three nights there. We traveled to Bora Bora first, which we enjoyed, but feel that Rangiroa was much nicer(maybe based on locations where we stayed). Overall I would highly reccommend Pension Bounty and we will consider staying when we go back to Rangiroa in the future. Thanks again Alain.
