We spent 5 days at Relais Mahana (which just changed its name to Hotel Le Mahana). It was fantastic. It's on a gorgeous bay with jade green and garnet colored water. The beachfront bungalows are very nice; not as luxurious as you'd find at the 5 star resorts on BB but very attractive and comfortable. We were in the very...

We had a fabulous two and a half days here. There is a very good beach, with great snorkelling, and lots of shade. The hotel itself is about twenty rooms, of which the 14 or so separate bungalows are the best. Big, airy and pretty - also aircon. Great restaurant especially for lunch or just sitting and sea gazing. Lovely...

Relais Mahana was located in a beautifully secluded part of Huahine and was the perfect location to start our honeymoon. The rooms were beautiful, even the ones that weren't right on the beach. They have a beautiful stretch of white sand beach and a great little snorkeling area right out the front.

We spent a lovely 3 days here last week - Alex and Marine (sp!) made us feel like we were home in just our short stay. Do not come expecting a chain resort experience but more of a laid back beach vibe with beautiful grounds and the gorgeous lagoon right outside your door. With all that nature you may get...

Wow. They have many free paddleboards and kayaks for the cutomer. They have a small boat with a motor that can be used for one hour. You just have to pay for the gas. They have FREE Wifi even if one comes to eat at the restaurant. The food is delicious. The dessert I had was presented so beautifully. It...

This really is a lovely hotel. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow with lagoon view. If you can afford to be in a bungalow right on the lagoon it would be even more perfect. Our bungalow was very comfortable,with excellent facilities. It was extremely clean. We had initially booked bed and breakfast but changed it to half board. The restaurant...

We were on a boat so cannot comment on the Hotel facilities. Located at the very southern tip of the beautiful double Island of Huahine - it is a real far-away place. We had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. Fish of the day which was moonfish and it was excellent. The snorkelling just off the jetty is fantastic too.

We should be very clear about our preferences...we don't like big luxury-style resorts. We prefer modest, small places and don't require tons of amenities. This was our fourth trip to French Polynesia and our first to Huahine. We loved the trip and the hotel was perfect. Huahine only has three "hotels" and all are small. We've had our eye on...

We had a beach bungalow at the far end of the resort; quiet and secluded. A great aspect and very relaxing. It was the perfect start to our multi-island holiday. Have the resort get their taxi driving, song writing neighbour take you on a tour.
