Really good location, far enough away from the busy-ness of Pape'ete but close enough to make traveling to/from the airport or ferry very easy. Ralph and his wife were great hosts who would help you out with many requests. Ralph was able to help me rent a car for the days I was there and gave me good advise as...

We stayed in one of the bungalows for 5 nights. It is right at the beach and free use of kayaks and snorkeling gear. Beautiful view of Moorea and sunsets. Ralph was helpful with info for the area. Always had a fresh baguette every morning on the front table. Very chilled place, hosts leave you be and give you your...

If you go to Tahiti Island and want to stay near Papette but next to the beach on a laid back place, this is the place to stay! I had a wonderful experience there! The hosts are a friendly and helpful couple. The dorm was clean, very spacious and had a wonderful view of the lagoon and small beach in...

Owners, Surfer-dude Ralph and Diane, are excellent hosts. Facilities are modern, clean, and private in an area of private homes at pk18 north of Papeete. Located adjacent to the calm lagoon, protected by a reef for calm water snorkelling or use of free kayaks. No pool. Outdoor kitchen. Coffee and tea in the room and fruit from the tree. A...

... no, really. It is almost like one other review had mentioned, though I don't have much of a problem with it. You get a small glimpse of what it would be like if you lived here. Other than getting picked up and dropped off at the airport, meals and activities are on your own. Sometimes its hard to get...

Just stayed at Taaroa Lodge for 3 nights after being at Easter Island and en-route to Auckland. Ralph picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and was very organised in checking the flight as we were early and he was there to meet us. The breakfast baguette and refreshments were very much appreciated. We enjoyed using the...

I recommend Taaroa Lodge to everyone dreaming to come to Tahiti. The place has such a good vibe, it is very convienently located and most of all, the owners are absolutely lovely. They are very helpful during your stay. They will recommend activities, places to go and help you to plan your trip if you would like to visit other...

I'll try and be objective here, as we were well unimpressed with Joker Ralph .. the surf boy who never grew up. Don't get me wrong .. he's friendly enough, but unmotivated and unhelpful. He charged us £20 to pick us up from the airport - despite that he'd also charged the other couple he was picking up £20 too,...

We had three two-night stays at Taaroa Lodge before, between, and after cruises. One stay was in the room with the private bath (basically just a bed and a couple of shelves), and two stays were in one of the two bungalows (double bed, single bed, small refrigerator, small tv, floor fan, microwave, plates, cups, utensils, great shower in the...
