3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Bit of a rip off
Not worth the huge price. The location is amazing, although a little warning of the 65 minute rough and uncomfortable boat ride would have been welcome... Room very basic without most of the facilities advertised (no ceiling fan, no rain shower - shower is a mere trickle!) but comfortable. Management showed no interest in solving problems or compensating us for false advertising. Food delicious. All other staff lovely.

4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The place is right at the south pass and REALLY perfect for divers! The water is crystal clear and you can see the colorful corals, fish ans sharks even without diving/snorkeling. The food was also great and tasty. Nevertheless, we could feel some tension between the staff. Clearly, the majority of guests from all around the world come for diving and some couldn't dive as much as they wanted because they lacked some staff (sick, not their fault). And once it was cancelled last minute because the captain refused to cooperate. It's a pity and it would have been wishful to anticipate this. Apart from this incident, we enjoyed our stay very much. It's really a magnificent location and perfect for disconnecting and relaxing.

Hâte de revenir
Très beau séjour passé dans ce coin de paradis. Le spot est magnifique, les plongées sont de classe mondiale, on mange bien, les Bangalore sont simple mais sympathiques avec une belle vue et le personnel sur place et super gentil, avenant et agréable. La combinaison parfaite pour un séjour parfait. Il faut par contre être conscient du contexte et savoir que le tout se situe sur une petit motu isolé de tout. Il ne faut donc pas s’attendre à du grand luxe.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
La direction joue avec vos nerfs...
Etablissement sommaire, il n'y a que le strict minimum dans le bungalow. Les repas sont bons. Le wifi est PAYANT et disponible uniquement dans l'espace commun. Cadre très sympa, staff ultra gentil, idem pour les moniteurs de plongée. Le GROS PROBLEME est la direction et sa secrétaire !! Très peu de réponse au mail pour organiser le pick up et le départ avant notre arrivée. Malgré s'être entendu plusieurs semaines avant pour une heure de départ en bateau inclus dans la réservation, la direction a décidé de son propre chef de nous remonter vers le nord de Fakarava que le lendemain de notre jour de départ prévu!!! Ca peut sembler incroyable mais la responsable nous a dis "c'est comme ça et c'est tout"!! Gros fail de leur part et c'est la seule réponse qu'elle a été capable de nous donner!! Il a fallu que le ton monte un peu et surtout la gentilesse du staff local qui a trouvé une solution pour nous ramener comme prévu. Il semble que la direction est coutumier du fait et fait comme bon lui semble.Elle d'ailleurs connu pour ça, suffit de lire les commentaires sur le net... Donc, très déçu de cette expérience, malgré et je tiens à le souligner, un staff comme partout en Polynésie au top et l'équipe plongée super sympa!
