We arrived after sunset, tired from a long day of travel and sight seeing. A bus transported us from the town of Vaitape to the hotel-$5 US fee. As we embarked we were immediatley greeted by a gracious front desk employee, draping a lei around our necks and a fruit punch to quench our thirst. Check in was efficient and our room was cleanand spacious. It had sufficient storage space for our clothes and luggage. There was a mini fridge, coffee maker and coffee/tea supplies in the room. A/C kept the rooms cool during the hot day time temperatures. In the morning, we were able to enjoy the lovely landscaped gardens of this hotel. The bar and dining room face the main road. They are open spaces, allowing the breezes in but low stone walls and plants afford some privacy. A breakfast buffet was included. It was standard with a selection of breads, fruits, scrambled eggs and bacon. My only complaint was the lack of local fruits. Apples and New Zealand Kiwis in a place where bananas, mangoes and papayas grow locally?? What a disappointment. The beach that the hotel is on was beautiful and was quite empty when we went there to sunbathe. No problem finding a free beach lounger. Snorkelling was quite good as well. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from a good grocery store and close to good restaurants and the town of Vaitape. WiFi was not included and expensive, but then, what isn't on Bora Bora? I did appreciate the fact that they let us stay in our room until we left at 4 pm without charging us for an extra day. It enabled us to enjoy our last day on the island on the beach at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a lower priced accomodation that is above average in what it has to offer on Bora Bora.
