One night stop over
We just used this lodge as a one night stay over from travelling from Moorea to catch an early flight. The owners of the lodge were great and did everything to make our stay comfortable, including organising a taxi to the airport. Used pool which was clean and pleasant. The rooms and facilities again were clean and tidy but basic. The hotel is close to the port, on a side street in an ‘interesting’ part of the town. We chose not to go out in the evening to find somewhere to eat.

Generally good The only issue we had was with the taxi to the airport. We were told one price, but this changed once we arrived at the airport.

Great layover spot close to the ferry.
We just needed a place to stay after our flight arrived at night before we were headed to other islands the next day. Staff is super friendly and helpful. 10 min walking to shops by the harbor. Breakfast was a nice, simple start to the day. If your expectations are a clean place to shower and crash as a layover, it's great. About 15 min from the airport via taxi and really close to the ferry which is exactly what we needed. If you have large luggage, I don't think you'll want to walk to the ferry though.

This was so so.
The room is very small and lots of mosquitos in room. I got more than 10 last night. But, the staff was very kind and good person. Also, price was reasonable compared to other hotels. I would recommend here, but don’t expect other US hotel’s appearance. You’ll be totally disappointed. The breakfast was also nice :)

Good location near the harbor
It was clean and friendly and a place to stay overnight before going to the airport in the morning. Taxi was called when we needed to go out.
Dotti, us1 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
Do not be tricked!
Avoid this dump -- it is basically a hostel charging 3*** rates. Breakfast a joke. Bad location. No closet, chairs, table, not even a glass in the room.
Eric, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
This is a basic but clean place, and all necessities were provided. The breakfast was good - usually a very tasty half baguette with jam and fruit and good coffee. The staff are friendly and helpful. Several reviews have voiced concerns about the neighborhood, but the four of us walked around a couple of evenings and did not feel at all uneasy.
