Reviewed 16 June 2016

the male owner is just a nasty piece of work. never a smile, focusing only on money, an ugly snarl on his face all the time, generally negative, moderately helpful, but just SO unpleasant. the rooms are ok and the location is good.

Hello, Thank you for your opinion. However, I would draw your attention to a fact. The affected owner of a terminal cancer returning from his treatment on the island of Tahiti with her husband. This same owner who has died this Saturday, October 9th. Yes, you certainly have reason for some of your words. But learn to book your opinion...

At all French Poolynesia We have not seen such selfish hosts and inconsiderate of their guests. All they care about is how to make you pay them mor money. The FOOD in their restaurant is very basic and not really tasty, but the prices as the expensive restaurants in Tahiti. Do not invite half-board because the price they charge for...

The island is fantastic, but in this small family hotel you will find the best food and the most charming people. Humo the manager is friendly and very attentive while Hina always smiling will let you relax with fantastic food perfectly mixing the French cuisine and the exotic flavors. On Friday night the happy hour will make a super happy...

With two other companions, I recently spent four days at Relais Moehau, while waiting to join a boat in Hiva Oa. First, the location is good, as you can walk to "down town" very easily, and the port is not too far in the other direction. The accommodation is perfectly comfortable, clean and well serviced-- probably three star standard is...

We booked this hotel as we were waiting for a boat to turn up in the harbour which we were joining and wanted to be close to town and explore the archaeological sites while we were waiting. We absolutely love the owners of this Relais who made our stay so memorable. Nothing was too much trouble and we taxed them...

Relais Moehau has all one could need in a central location. The rooms are basic, but clean and breezy. Breakfast is ample with plenty of coffee and fruit. I found that room 5 in the back corner was perfect for me because of cross draft and no one in front of your room on the terrasse. It's run like a...

Relais moehau has an excellent location. Convenient for beach and town and a delightful view. Rooms are basically furnished and have no air conditioning and ceiling fans which do not work very well. There is plenty of hot water always available.. The breakfast is a big fruit plate and fresh baguettes often served with homemade preserves. In the evening the...

I think this place is a real gem. It's unique selling point for Hiva Oa is it's nearness to the village and beach, I don't think there is another place with such easy access to both. This means you don't have to rely on lifts and can set your own pace. It's not a fancy hotel, but is clean, spacious,...

“Ask for a room with a sea view and if they have it they will arrange it, otherwise you face a bank (that's not the end of the world though)”
