So much to say - and all positive.
The welcome - from the minute you step through the gate, you're made so welcome by Philippe and Corinne, along with the refreshing coconut cocktail. Right through my stay, 12 nights, they were the friendliest hosts and they had just the right balance of care, not too intrusive but ever-helpful. The evening meal, of course, was the highlight of the day - excellent and imaginative use of local ingredients together with lovely presentation. I had imagined I would eat elsewhere some of the time, but there was no chance of that after I'd tasted their cooking! The one time I did eat at a restaurant it was nowhere near as good.
My bungalow was charming and spotlessly clean, and I spent many happy hours on the deck reading, with the sound of the waves just a stone's throw away.
The staff were lovely as well, always cheerful and friendly.
I think I'd recommend hiring a car if you can, as the Fare is a bit far from towns or villages in either direction.
It was really good value for money, considering how expensive French Polynesia is in general - and if you book direct with them, there could be a discount available - it's worth checking.
I would thoroughly recommend a stay here - if I ever come back, I'll certainly stay here.
Room Tip: The bungalow nearest the lagoon is the most popular, but when I was there we had a few storms and their deck got a bit flooded - I was very happy in mine, just behind that one.
