4/10 Fair

Good value for money and close to Grocery store and shops.Location is not the best though and is hard to find by taxi.We had found the remote for the Air Conditioning unit on the first level and turned the unit on.Came back after twenty minutes from our upstairs room and noticed the unit was turned off and the remote missing.When the owners came in to restock the breakfast cereals they noticed it was on and I can only assume they were not happy because the unit was using power and abruptly turned it off.We sweltered in the heat alongs with the other angry and upset guests.Stay clear of this place and its rude young male housekeeper. He plays games that he does not understand you!

la maison etait sale!
We booked 2 nights. Upon arrival the house was in a dirty state. it was just digusting. The floor were sticky and dirty. The kitchen was in terrible state. The shower was blocked by hairs.. Furthemore It is not right to promote a breakfast when on 1st day there was just 3 eggs for 2 and some Bread . No jam no butter nothing... On 2nd day same 3 eggs arrived when we were leaving.... no juice no cornflakes as advertied on their pictures FELIX the person in charge is a good person but the owner should pay for a cleaning lady. And for a gardener. The state of the garden was appaling. the lawn had not been cut for weeks. It is all very good to rent ooms but maintenance is a priority.

A small guesthouse
Close to the center of Papeete. You checked in ”digitalky”. No real life staff available, normally. The very few rooms are basic. The room was glesbygd, but not the terrace next to it.
