We had a fine 3 day stay at Renais Fenua. Our room was comfortable and clean. Syrill helped us along the way and spoke enough English to make things work. The food is excellent, dinners are highly recommended. The baguette was superb,as was the wonderful fresh fruit served at breakfast. The charming gardens and small pool were a pleasant place to relax. This lovely pension is recommended for the budget conscious visitor who does not require great luxury and may not be fluent in French.

I staid twice in the pension during my visit in Polynesia, my first impressions were good but after visiting other islands I returned for one night there and my stay was completely different: It seems that the two French employees are nice only if they can sell either an excursion, a car or a meal otherwise they do not even dare to say hello to you. They leave the pension empty between 2 and 6 pm and do not return in the evening, this means that if your plane is late at night - often the case- you have to wait till the cook comes in the evening to use the bathroom and get your stuff. The pension is very very far from Papeete, they offer you either to rent a car (through them) or to use a taxi - always the same- for a price which is not always the same (between 6.000 and 7.000 xpc which is a very heavy price). This taxi man drives you, charges you the full price but uses the ride to pick up other customers for the same price again at the time it fits his agenda-must be a very rentable job for him. He feels like at home in the pension, taking what he wants from the fridge instead of caring about you... I could not sleep a single hour in the last night my air conditioning wasn’t working - but nobody was there in the evening to report the problem, as I mentioned it the day after I was told what it still not repaired? - so the problem was known but as I arrived the manager preferred finish her meal instead of saying hello to me, she left the taxi driver bring me to my room so she obviously did not mentioned the air conditioning... One very positive thing though the 3 Polynesian girls working in the pension are very nice helpful and competent - they deserve more than a plus, I thing the two French employees should learn a bit from Polynesian hospitality which is mostly the reason why we want to travel there...

Ia orana ! I m really sorry that you feel it in this way and i not appreciate at all the way you speak about us !! we propose you activitées and possibilitées of rents for enjoy but in any way our smile depend of that !!! we love what we do and hope the best for our guest in any time !!! the pension is empty for 4 hours by day , we are not a big hostel and have a little team so it s not possible for us to open full day even if we want .... if you want the room for your last day you have to rent this room one day more ! we propose the possibility to leave your bagage at the reception for enjoy your last day and the possibility to take a shower before you leave ! it s not in the other pension who you have that for free !!! normaly you have to go and wait at the airport , you have to know that ... The pension is far from the center city ( 18k300) but if you have reading our web page or anytink about us you will know that ...you can t have the city and the most beautifull white send beach at 5 minutes at the same time .... The price of the taxi is not our choice , is the price here in Polynesie , i know it s expensive but we can t do anything about that .and yes it s rentable for him , it s his job .... is job is also to bring you to your room so it s normal if the cook chef ( and not the manager ) finish her job instead of doing the job of Henry ( the taxi men ) who was pay for .... and of course it feel like home at the pension ! he work for us from a long time ago a being a part of our team ! i really don t like your way of thinking .... For the air conditioning we are really sorry but a once you tell us is broke ( and no , we didn t know before if not we telling you or put you in a other room ) , we call the specialist and wait for him to come and repaired it , know it s ok ... We accept the remarks when they are established , they allow us to improve and to propose better services , fortunately that the great majority of the customers reassure us on the services which we propose them, on our acceuil and our advice we are aware of our professional behavior for not not being hurt buy your jugement but you have the right to think what you want and we are sorry you don t enjoy your stay with us ... kind regards Julie

Iorana, Thank you Sabrina and staff..you have been most helpful to our group from Aotearoa/New Zealand. All our arrangements by email were completely met by you and your team. We appreciated having a warm welcome, friendly faces, and helpful service for our short stay. Rooms were exactly what we needed, clean, tidy and sufficient for our two night short stay. Mauruuru korua...Would recommend this place to anyone who wants clean, simple accomodation with great hosts...!

We chose this hotel after returning from a cruise on the Paul Gauguin. We did not have a car and were looking for a relaxing day before flying home. We took a taxi from the port 40$ and were met with a friendly smile. The hotel is not fancy, but it was clean, had a fridge, and a microwave. We were told of a couple options walking from the hotel. To the left about 10 min was a city park and beach. On the way was a small grocery store with fresh baguettes and drinks. To the right is a fantastic food truck that opens at 6 enroute to a beautiful beach again on a public park. This was a nice day, relaxing with some walkable choices. If you are looking for glamour and over the water, this is not it. But a relaxing, clean, and friendly location this works fine.

This place is nice & close to the beach but far from the pier. It is clean & nice & quiet. The staff were very helpful. They offer breakfast & dinner if you want. The stores are not very far. Beautiful sunset view from the beach.
