After visiting the beach here, we fell in love with the area and booked in for the final night of our stay on Mo'orea. In terms of location - it's perfect. Beautiful white sandy beach with access to kayaks and boats to get over to the Ray and Shark feeding point in seconds and any of the 3 beautiful atolls, positioned opposite. Situated on the northerly western tip, it feels well positioned for afternoon sunshine and misses some of the heavier, longer morning rainfalls other areas of the island take the brunt of.
Our bungalow was very reasonably priced for Mo'orea and was very comfortable. However, as travellers on a budget, there were no cooking facilities or complimentary breakfast, so eating at the restaurant, whilst delicious, adds up. Wifi however, is widely available and free which is a bonus. Whilst kayaks cost extra, the Polynesian style boats were also complimentary with our stay. As two, fit young travellers, we really struggled to get to grips with it and couldn't beat the current on our return leg. We ended up having to jump and swim behind our boat pushing it home.Whilst funny, do be careful of the currents in these waters and the sharp coral - would take reef shoes and stick to the kayaks!
I would definitely recommend this property to others - it's location is the epitome of tropical island beauty at a fraction of the price for other, similarly located hotels. The restaurant is tipped to be the best on the island too, so enjoy.
