Great place and family
Only 3 bungalos with private beach
Calm, beautiful, great food, views of the central island... etc etc
We really really recommend staying there 2 or 3 nights
We love polynesia and we love this family pension
- Free Wifi
We spent a total of 7 nights at this Pension. We stayed in guest house 2 for 5 nights then returned a week later and stayed in guest house 3 for 2 nights.
I recommend this Pension to anyone who wishes to experience a quiet and peaceful visit to BoraBora. There are activities you can participate in at the Pension and it is possible to get involved in activities around Bora Bora.
The meals at the Pension are superb.
The ambience is mesmerizing. The greens and blues, even when overcast or during rain is visually stunning.
Each guest house is impeccably clean when you arrive. They are quaint, private and detailed. Many personal touches. It is eco-friendly.
Alice and Raphael and family are terrific hosts. There is no pressure. Just a nice feeling.
My boyfriend and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago after a few days in a hotel in Moorea. Alice and Raphael were just the perfect hosts, the Motu was just lovely, our hut looked out across the garden to the beach facing Bora Bora mainland, well decorated, cosy, with plenty of space and one of the best showers we encountered on our travels to date. Alice cooked for us every night and the food was sublime, nothing fancy but just excellent home cooked food and plenty of it! We are currently fending for ourselves in New Zealand and missing Alice's food desperately. Raphael was charming, both had excellent English and nothing was too much trouble. We visited the mainland and Rapahel arranged the scooter hire for us and dropped us off and brought us back again. We also did the lagoon trip which was epic. The children were just lovely and very entertaining when trying to avoid Alice putting them to bed, we also adored the cats and dogs and loved paddling in the shallows with the dogs (the cats preferred to hang in the main building) and it really felt like a home away from home. An excellent stay and would absolutely stay again (if only the flight from the UK wasn't so long!), thank you for a wonderful time, Pension Alice and Raphael is sorely missed.
I have stayed in this fantastic pension, superbly located and surrounded with all the friendliness you can dream of, however no wifi available. But that was no issue at all because Bora Bora ofders so much fantastic experiances. It offers a splendid view of the lagoon and the main island. Strongly recommended also because it is very price attractive.
Alice and Raphael manage this small pension which is unique in Bora Bora. The place is very intimate. Only two, well equiped bangalows placed in front of the mythical Bora Bora lagoon. Alice is a super cooker. She prepares very simple dish (mainly fish) with love and creativity. They serve the tipical french breakfast made of bread and jam and some fruit which is fine but we got bored of it every day.
Wifi is not available, we went on the main island to get connection. Bring some mosquito repellent with you, at dinner time you won't be alone!
Raphael organized for a us a tour on the lagoon wich was very nice. He was also available to bring us to the airport to get a free transfer from the airport to the main island. This transfer is in charge of you.
If you want to discover the real Bora Bora at reasonable price in a beautiful and peaceful place this is the one for you.
We found this beautiful place as we were looking to stay in Bora Bora 3 weeks for our wedding ceremony on September 13 to 20/2015. Everything was so nice. Raphael and Alice are wonderful. Alice cooked for us the way we asked her.Very unique place for people who are looking to stay way from the busy day to day life. We really enjoyed a week there. We were able to walk every day in the back of the property with their two lovely dogs. I'm now missing the wonderful salads Alice made for me. Everyday I was looking forward to see what kind of salad I would get, because everyday she had something different. My husband really loved the food, fish was special, my husband wants them everyday. Raphael is always willing to help to plan activities and even make calls to schedule them. We are looking forward to go back there to relax and forget outside world. Thanks so very much to both of you
Alice and Rapha
