Although we only stayed for one night prior to picking up our charter yacht, every aspect of our stay was as good as it gets. Our pre-trip enquiries were answered by return email from Maite, and we were met at the airport even before our bags came out. Nothing was too much trouble - from the quick stop off at... More

Our Bungalow (6) was huge but the rooms need some thought. The bathroom was enormous but the shower way too small, lots of free space unused is a desapointement. Bed are too hard so we didn't sleep well. We had a small "beach" with a swing in front of the bungalow and was really a must. The terrace was fabulous... More

Highly recommend Sunset Beach Motel, from being picked up at the airport (unexpectedly!), and then a quick stop for groceries on the way back, we were really well looked after. Lovely people thank you! We had a great room right on the beach, which was really well presented, nice grounds and a great location close to the airport and marina-... More

This is the best campground I found during a month of camping all over French Polynesia. The staff is friendly and helpful, the amenities available to campers are the same available to resort guests--kayaks, snorkeling gear, access to the dock and lagoon and deep diving and swimming hole, common lounge, extensive grounds, and free parking. The front desk is not... More

To be perfectly frank my husband and I were shocked when we drove up to Sunset Beach Motel. It is beautiful. We did not expect such fine accommodations located on one of the most beautiful peaceful bays we had ever seen. Most of the cottages are water front affording beautiful views from sunrise to sunset (especially sunset). The Sunset Beach... More

We arrived from Tahaa, and had made a deal about pick up from there. Everything was well organised and we arrived to the motel. We had a waterfront bungalow with amazing view! The bungalow was very spacious with a nice terrace. The bungalow was a bit old but everything worked fine. Own fully equipped kitchen, tv (french), bathroom and beach... More

Good value for money. Right on the water's edge. We particularly liked the 'flying fox' zip-wire ride from the end of the jetty into the water. We also liked the free use of canoes and snorkling gear.

The spacious bungalows are right on the beach overlooking the island of Bora Bora. It is a family-run business that provides a generous pick-up and delivery service to/from the airport and tours. The bed is comfortable and there's a ceiling fan in the bedroom. However, there are 3 extra single beds in the large family room but there is no... More

The owners are very accommodating and friendly. the free use a day room to shower was great. the grounds are well kept and there is plenty of room between the bungalows. it is not the Ritz, but for the price it is really nice.
