We finished our 3 weeks at Le Relais de Josephine and spent 2 great days there. Room was very nice, clean, quiet. The clear highlight is the deck of the restaurant where you can spend hours watching dolphins playing in the waves during the day and small sharks at night!! Dinners was also very good and we liked the different...

Stopped by here after walking around town looking for a glass of wine. The deck is a great viewing place to watch the dolphins jump in the out going current. Before you go check with your hotel or the locals when the out going current is because this is the only time you will see the dolphins and it changes...

It has been over a year since we have been in Rangiroa but I promised myself I would write this review as a warning for other gullible travellers...I had it in the drafts for a long time and finally found time to publish it. We stayed at Josephines in May 2015. Rangiroa was the last stop on our 3 weeks...

At Les Relais de Josephine you do not feel like in a Pension, you feel as part of the family. Josephine, Severine as well as the entire staff are very friendly. The food is simply outstanding and the location just perfect for scuba divers like us. With outgoing current you can watch the dolphins playing in the waves of Tiputa...

The room we were allocated was apparently one of the best however the room was not clean and nor was the bathroom. The mattress had lost its support a long time ago. The furniture was shabby, not shabby chic! There was a small safe in the room that was rusted shut. The air conditioning consisted of a ceiling fan and...

Relais de Jospehine is as delightful a place as Josephine is herself. The rooms are actually individual buildings with big porches and are very comfortable, charming and private. It would be great for solo travelers to larger groups with the unique setup. The food was phenomenal! We scuba dove every day and worked up appetites that were fully sated with...

When we docked on our cruise in Rangiroa....someone told us to walk down the path and turn right into the long palm fronded driveway that leads to Les Relais de Josephine. It is situated right on the water and we spent the morning relaxing in the outdoor restaurant right on the water. The place has incredible ambiance, and Madame Josephine...

This pension was an absolute delight - from the views on the pass to the phenomenal food, the fantastic mother-daughter team denise (aka josephine) and severine, the beautiful bungalow and the fantastic help with arranging excursions...there was nothing we could ask for to make it better (ok, maybe having wifi in the bungalows and not only in the dining area)....

The perfect place to be especially on the armchair in front of the unique "tiputa Pass " where millions of fish is passing by,(dolphins,grey or blacktip or white or lemon or the best hammerhead shark, barracudas, Napoleon fish,turtles and many many other .) Hinano tahiti beer and coffee as it has to be. comfortable and beautiful rooms.

We walked down the main road from the dock and found this amazing restaurant (and b&b). The views are unbelievable and the panini's are amazing! Nothing better then a cold Hinano and the most delicious panini ever! Don't miss this opportunity, totally worth the short trek!!
