    The property is right on the beach, 100m away from a Magasin (dairy) and only 4km away from the small town of Taravao. Kitchen facilities and complimentary tea and coffee are great. Very clean and the fan in my room was great for keeping the temperature down. Hands down the best value for money on my ten day trip. Note:- The welcoming dog is a bit loud but he's on a chain and it is completely safe. He calms down after a few times walking past.

    Punatea Village is nicely located at the ocean. Unfortunately the bungalows are very outdated and in need of repair. The bungalows only have a fridge but no kitchen. There is a communal kitchen which makes the whole place feel like a hostel. We were very unlucky with torrential rain for the full two days that we stayed here in late April 2019. The owner is very friendly and speaks a little English.

    The property is remote which is nice if you like that kind of thing. Very pleasant stay and low key. It is a distance from the airport and not much to eat around. If staying longer, they have a nice kitchen to prepare meals, which I would have done if staying longer The property does show some wear and tear, but the overall atmosphere and experience were very enjoyable. You can't beat the location right on the shore with windows open to hear the surf.

    great hotel for a privacy getaway

    My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Punatea Village. Our cabin was close to the beach, so we had the sound of the surf to put us to sleep at night. The hotel is on the windward side of Tahiti iti, which gave us active surf and a cool breeze all day and evening. The best part of our stay was that it is far from the expense and crush of the "tourist" destinations. The only major drawback was the lack of restaurants in the area, so we made do cooking ourselves The people are friendly and helpful, but it helps to speak a little French,though we managed without it. If you wish to be pampered, this it not a location you would like, but if you are coming to mingle with the locals and enjoy quiet and relaxation, Punatea Village is a good place to spend a week or two. You can always drive back to Papeete if you want a more active (expensive) experience, but know that the traffic on Tahiti is a challenge.

    Pros: Quiet, secluded

    Cons: More cooking utensils and cutlery in the common kitchen

    Location: Diving

    Stayed 5 nights in Nov. 2017
