Rangiroa is the largest atoll in French Polynesia and the second largest worldwide. Her infinite lagoon, her exquisite beaches and awesome underwater world make this atoll a definite place to stop during your stay.

Ia Orana Ruta,
Sorry for my late reply, returning after 4 weeks of absence was busy ...
You will find below our responses to your questions.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay in Polynesia. We only regretted unwanted guests (cockroaches) in some hotels, including the Hilton Moorea that was totally infested (we changed our bungalow but the problem is repeated), which is unfortunate for a 5 star hotel. This is perhaps part of the landscape, yet we do not met Taha or Bora Bora for example. Otherwise, everything was perfect.
Thank you for your time and responsiveness to organize this trip. We will not hesitate to advise Yestahiti or use your services again in the case of a possible stay in Polynesia, even if it is not in the program in the coming years (given the distance and cost). Maruru!
 Best regards

Do you have any particular opinion to give?
The tour "Dolphin Encounter" in Moorea has not met our expectations. We walked along the island coast (within 50 m) and the guide gave us information on the island, but we do not really try avaons dolphins. We felt that this tour was consolidated with the tour visiting the lagoon.

We stayed situation, near to 4 weeks in French Polynesia, spent 2 nights on board Maupiti Kuiri: rustic but very attractive, warm, friendly, and great food eaten together around a long table
-3 Nights in Raiatea Lodge where Front and Karine Olivier is excellent, nice property facing the splendid sunset, a big thank you to Christian for his tour of the island and the smallest day so unexpected and nice.
Damage to the curfew at 5 am! no more animation on Raiatea - 3 nights in Tahaa Fare Pea Iti, absolutely beautiful and good atmosphere with Pascal and Marilyn - 3 Nights at the Mahana in Huahine relays, small cleanliness issues in the bathroom, but nice place anyway, the The island is very beautiful, very lush, not much to see
- 3 nights in Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort: luxury bath on stilts, we loved visiting the black tips and rays that came our border at night, but we have not benefited much because the island weather except on Matira Beach, beautiful.
5 nights in Rangiroa Lagoon Raira we made splendid excursions (especially the blue lagoon and the island to the exceptional reefs!) But regretted the welcome and attitude of Jean-Fred is somewhat whimsical. He should leave the relationship to its employees ...
-5 Nights in Fakarava at pension Hawaiki where everyone is lovely, welcoming, friendly. Again, beautiful excursions "the south and green lagoon pass) and a lovely pearl harvested in the lottery (a pearl and it was there that he is bought in). And diving !!!! ! that beautiful meetings, Surtour with dolphins Rangiroa.
In short! Everything was very nice, very good, very expensive! ...

Thanks a lot for the organization of our honeymoon. Our trip to Bora-Bora, Tahaa, Rangiroa and FAKARAVA was unforgettable.
Everything went perfectly: the recommended hotels were perfect, the pension at Fakarava was great and the activities we have chosen extra.
No stress for a perfect organization. A team that listens to our needs and answer quickly to every question. In short, we already recommend Yestahiti to all our friends and relatives.

Information about the
destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by our consultant were good, as the organization at the arrival and during the trip.
We recommend Yestahiti. Our contact Frederic was listening to us and gave us perfect advises - no problem to call him on skype. It was easy to arrange everything.
The quality of accommodation was good overall.
Very good bedding in all pensions.
The dinner was very good at pension Tautiare while the breakfast was very disappointing (baguette and jam industrial - missing at least one fruit).
At Fakarava, Havaiki is not a pension but rather a charm hotel. good bedding but a very poor soundproofing in the panoramic bungalow. If you have some noisy neighbors, you have gained your experience !!! In spite of that the place is very good and Joachim's sons are friendly. The tour to the South Pass is fine.
Pension Cecile - Life at the pension is different when Cecile is there! Very nice, she settled down with the tourists.
The two activities we made are really a must: the tour at the south pass of fakarava with Havaiki and Reef Island at Ranguiroa with Leon (Paati excursion) - the place, the food on the motu, snorkeling and traditionnal crafts - everything was perfect.
Please notice that the motu tour at Maupiti is disappointing, no interest.
Diving: a lot
We recommend Tahiti even if it is not a budget destination -
People are very nice, they do not hesitate to inform us or to help us.
The scenic beauty of the underwater world...

Regarding Frederick, who organized our trip, I have to say he was perfect.
Fast, reliable, listening to my wishes. No surprises during our trip. what asking more ? Air Tahiti and Air Tahiti Nui are very good airlines.
Our favorite islands were Maupiti, Rangiroa, Moorea and Tikehau. We will not return to Taha'a even if I think the hotel is worth a visit: the Vahine Island with its beauty, perfect bungalows, his kindness and intimacy and of course the gastronomy...
Bora Bora is still a must with its lagoon, hotels and this wonderful mountain. But the atmosphere is not the same as on the other islands. People are less open to each other.
The intercontinental hotels are great qualities.

Responses to the poll:

1 / How do you rate our Information about the destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by your advisor? Good, but we already had a pretty clear idea. The hotels were very good except perhaps in Maupiti - the Kuriri - is a bit limited anyway. I think it's better to be on the main island.

2 / How do you rate the overall organization of your stay (home to the airport, transfers, domestic flights)?
Excellent reception on arrival but not very cheerful but everything went without any problems or errors with the reservation. It was perfect. No one came to see us for the check out, I hoped  to see Frédéric ;-).

3 / Would you recommend Yestahiti to your friends and relations? yes, without hesitation.

4 / How do you rate the quality of your accommodation compared to your expectations? See answer 1 of the Kuriri Maupiti. It does not match the site of the board, the white sand beach !! White yes but impractical and comfort is really limited, an impossible stream of water to really wash, they are nice and we ate well, it's light but good. I would not recommend it anyway.
Tkehau village is good for bungalows and location, food and atmosphere means.
Otherwise, perfect, completely perfect. Special mention for the pension Cécile, location, hospitality, atmosphere, meals, everything is there.

5 / How do you rate the tours and activities during your stay? Excellent. Excursions very well taken there each time. Safety on board vessels can surprise sometimes, especially with a child, but welcome and great service.

6 / I recommend without hesitation Polynesia, The island of Tahiti less but the rest, without hesitation. It's a magical beauty, Polynesians are very nice, a little shy sometimes but not for long! We’d love to come back to your islands, anyway, we were all and even. My 8 year old son cried in hope therefore that's a first. We must save now to come back !!

Our experts' advice



“There are many things to discover in Tahiti”

Do not hesitate to stay 2 or 3 days in Tahiti. Indeed, it will allow you to recover from jetlag before visiting the other islands of French Polynesia. When you will be in Tahiti, you must go around the island for the day and stop at these different places:  Mara’a cave, Vaima source, Taravao belvedere, Teahupoo, “3 cascades”, “trou du souffleur”, “pointe Vénus” and ending with a Happy Hour in a Hotel. Tahiti will offer you the possibility to enjoy different type of beaches:  white and black sands. And if you are a trekking fan, 3 days in Tahiti won’t be enough for you !
