22 February 2014 Susan would recommend this property

Liked: Comfy ensuite room, great air conditioning to return to after long walks around Papeete, excellent, friendly, helpful staff. Good baguette, ham, cheese, fruit, yogurt, muesli, juice and coffee breakfast on attractive lanai, available if you want it for an extra amount ( now 10 euros ea.) Supermarket a block away, and shared kitchen available. Fairly close to town center - about 300 meters - where ATMs, rastaurants, and tourist info. are found. Also the roulottes, food trucks with all manner of food at 6 pm each night.

Disliked: Bring a flashlight or headlamp....the last block to the property is on unlighted residential alley. Not a problem, as the neighborhood seems quite safe.

Liked: Great value for money considering the expense of Tahiti, right near the waterfront and ideally located in downtown where you can walk everywhere, including the ferry terminal. Great supermarket less than 5 mins walk away. Beni was great with the airport pick up and drop off, saved heaps of hassle. Only bit of advice, which is separate from the great accommodation, would be to use Papeete as a start off place and move on to one of the many beautiful islands. You can run out of things to do in Papeete pretty fast and if you want to relax somewhere on a beach Moorea may be a better choice.

Disliked: Just make sure you bring a wee torch, the walk back at night is very dark!

Liked: This property was in a great location just minutes from central Papeete. The free pick up/drop to the airport is a major plus as taxis tend to be expensive here. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Some safety security lockers would be good.

Liked: I had a great time at this place. The owner, Beni, is a very nice guy and he help and support when ever you need it. The Fare Suisse is the best pension in French Polinesia compared to others. I highly recommend it to stay, especially when you will arrive or leave to / from Tahiti. It is great located closed to the airport and you get a free of charge pick up and transfer to the airport. On top, the WIFI at this pension is free of charge which is unusual on the irlands. The commen rate PER HOUR is 9000 FPX (9 EURO). @Beni, Thanks again. Bernd

Disliked: All was fine for me.

Liked: Beni runs a great place here. Shuttle to and from the airport and to the ferry port if you want to visit the island. Guesthouse is clean and has a great relaxed feel to it. Free Wifi is also provided and as well as the kitchen area, there is a mini-bar for those who can't be bothered walking to the supermarche (2 mins down the road). It's fair to say that Faire Suisse is the place to stay!
