This was my second stay here with the first being in 2004. This place is always clean with hospitable staff. Two of the rooms are in need of a refresh as they are starting to show some age. The bed was harder than I remember but being out in the middle of the Pacific, I can understand this. The food, which comes with the stay was outstanding. The rooms are still screened for bugs and is a good idea. Babes has always been an outstanding value for this part of the World. As usual, Babe is a great host. I will return some day.

Babe's Place is the ideal accommodation for a visit to Mangaia. The room and facilities are clean and relatively spacious. Best of all is the hospitality of the hosts (in our case Doreen and Ura), who prepare delicious Pacific meals and go beyond the call of duty in helping their guests. The tarrif is very reasonable and includes transfers from the airport and three meals a day (packed lunch). Mangaia is simply a superb island to visit with it's spectacular raised coral landscapes, caves and the taro gardens behind the 40-50 metre coral cliffs have a supremely mysterious quality about them. We had no problems with email bookings.

Babe's is one of only a few places to stay on Mangaia, and from speaking to locals, probably the nicest. Mangaia itself is so laid back it is horizontal, so don't expect hotel accommodation anywhere. Babe's offers fairly spacious, clean rooms with private bathroom, a large communal dining and lounging area. I was the only guest when I stayed, so had the only staff member present who was chiefly the cook. Food is included in the price and was more than adequate. It was necessary to keep the room doors closed at all times due to the ever present mosquitos. Quiet and friendly. A nice relaxing place. Motor cycles can be rented locally and there is a small shop nearby.
The only negative comment I have is that the did not respond to several emails sent to the address on their website. In the end I simply phoned them from Rarotonga.
