We really enjoyed staying here. Great way to end our French Polynesian vacation. Don't be put off when driving to the location...it's a great spot once you arrive! Rooms are unique individual bungalows: open air with 2 comfortable chaise lounges on large porch, large bed with netting, rock-walled open shower. Isabelle is a WONDERFUL chef and we were lucky to be there when she offered to cook dinner for guests. Very convenient and delicious meal. Local food, well-prepared, great service. The Green Lodge is a much better option than a big corporate hotel. True Polynesia with a touch of France! Thank you Isabelle & JeanLuc for adding to our vacation memories.

Room tip: Any room would be fine

We stayed 4 nights with Green Lodge and could not have asked for a better, more personable experience for our honeymoon. If you are into getting away from the mainstream, large hotel chains this is for you. It's a small village of six units/bungalows, beachfront or garden (pool), we stayed beachfront and it was worth every extra dollar. The entire property and units are clean and well kept, the service and help to explore the island, arrange activities and taxis is on point. We arranged for a massage on our porch of our bungalow and it was also exceptional. The food is EXCEPTIONAL, especially dinner. Breakfast is fruit and bread/jam, the fruit was also fresh and full of flavor. The pool is lovely to hang at during the day and the beach is feet away. The couple that runs the property are wonderful hosts, helpful, kind and their furry (2dogs and cat) companions are good company.

for me this is the perfect place to rest after this long long travel from Paris. rooms are superb and you have a direct access to the see. There is a beautiful public plage very close from the lodge. Your guests are there to help you with any demand and Jean-Luc is a great cooker.

Room tip: all rooms are around the pool and on the beach

As others have recently mentioned, but it needs to be stated again, this place is extremely remote. Only taxi's will take and pick you up from this hotel, so hopefully you have your own means of transportation otherwise you will be forced to walk 1k+ down a gravel road just to get where you are going. If you are going to stay here and plan on seeing any of the sites I would recommend getting a scooter or a car.

Before we left for dinner each night (around 7pm) we would turn on our air conditioning because if we did not our room would be 100+ degrees Fahrenheit. Each night we would come home around 9-9:30pm to our Air Conditioner being turned off and our room being extremely hot. Come to find out the owners have a switch in their room to turn off room's Air Conditioners. I get that they do not want the AC being run during the day when you are not in the room, but when people turn it on to sleep that is a different story.

These among a few other issues led us to checking out of the hotel early and going down the road to the Manava to stay for a few nights.

Overall, if you are looking for a small, remote, quite, Bed and Breakfast, where you can just lay by the pool all day and do nothing this is probably a great place to stay. But, if you plan on doing anything else I would recommend not staying here. It was only a bit more money to stay at the Manava and the accommodations were much better.

Bonjour Monsieur, Madame,
Nous nous souvenons très bien de vous.
Nous tenons à vous remercier de nous permettre d’apporter à nouveau quelques précisions concernant le Lodge :
Le Green Lodge est le deuxième hébergement de toute l’île le plus près du centre de Moorea (Maharepa), après l’hôtel Manava qui est en centre-ville, bord de route.
Nous nous situons en bord de mer le long de la plage public du motu Temae, à 10 minutes de l’aéroport et du quai des ferrys. Il faut emprunter une piste (certes non goudronnée mais tout à fait praticable en voiture, scooter, vélo …) pour y arriver, qui se prolonge jusqu’au terrain de golf situé en bord de la route principale.
Nous nous situons à 900 mètres du terrain de golf (10 minutes maximum à pied).
A peine à 30 mètres du Green Lodge, se situent une petite épicerie et un snack.
Nous organisons également des free pick up au départ de l’entrée du terrain de golf, pour se rendre dans deux restaurants.
Nous organisons aussi, de nombreuses activités avec pour la plus part des free pick up directement au Green Lodge ou dans certains cas à l’entrée du terrain de Golf situé à peine à 900 mètres du Lodge.
Où que vous soyez sur l’île et partout ailleurs dans le monde, vous serez forcément éloigner de quelque chose. C’est pourquoi, vous avez tout à fait raison de conseiller d’avoir un moyen de locomotion afin d’être autonome, c’est ce que nous proposons à nos guests de faire.
Nous pouvons organiser avec livraison au Lodge, la location de voiture, scooter et bicyclette.
Toutes nos chambres et bungalows, possèdent un brasseur d’air et l’air conditionné que nos guests peuvent utiliser à souhait de façon raisonnée bien sûre.
Nous demandons à nos guets d’utiliser l’air conditionné si ils sont dans la chambre, comme nous l’avons fait avec vous à plusieurs reprises, vous nous répondiez Ok mais vous en faisiez tout à fait autrement, c’est pour cela que soucieux de l’écologie et du gaspillage d’énergie nous coupions votre air conditionné lorsque vous n’étiez pas à l’intérieur de la chambre.
Les climatiseurs sont suffisamment puissants pour rafraichir la chambre en à peine 10 minutes.
Comme vous le préciser si bien dans votre revue, vous laissiez en marche l’air conditionné sans personne dans la chambre pendant plusieurs heures, pour personne. Cela vous le faisiez même le matin alors que vous étiez au petit déjeuner, vous avez également laissé l’air conditionné en marche plusieurs fois depuis le début d’après-midi alors que vous réoccupiez votre chambre que le soir vers 21 h, 21 h 30 quand vous rentriez au Lodge.
Les gens font bien comme ils veulent, ce qui est tout à fait normal, nous nous faisons un point d’honneur à respecter cela.
Nous demandons juste que l’on soit respectueux à notre égard, ainsi que pour les efforts que nous faisons pour vous satisfaire, comme nous le sommes avec nos guests.
Nous sommes ravis que votre fin de séjour se soit mieux passée, et regrettons ce mal entendu.
Cordialement, la direction.


Hello sir, madam,
We remember you very well.
We would like to thank you for allowing us to bring to light some details concerning the Lodge:
The Green Lodge is the second accommodation on the island closest to the center of Moorea (Maharepa), after the Manava hotel which is in the city center, roadside.
We are located on the seaside along the Motu Temae public beach, 10 minutes from the airport and the ferry dock. You have to take a track (which is not asphalt but quite accessible by car, scooter, bicycle ...) to reach the lodge, which extends to the golf course located on the main road.
We are located 900 meters from the golf course (10 minutes maximum on foot).
Just 30 meters from Green Lodge, there is a small grocery store and a snack bar.
We also organize free pick-ups from the entrance to the golf course to two restaurants.
We also organize many activities with mostly free pick up directly at the Green Lodge or in some cases at the entrance of the Golf Course located just 900 meters from the Lodge.
Wherever you are on the island and anywhere else in the world, you will inevitably get away from something. That is why you are absolutely right to advise to have means of transportation in order to be autonomous, that is what we propose to our guets to do.
We can arrange, with delivery to the Lodge, car rental, scooter and bicycle.
All our rooms and bungalows have a fan and air conditioning that our guests can use in a reasonable way.
We ask our guests to use the air conditioning if they are in the room, as we have done with you several times, you answered Ok but you were doing it quite differently, that's why worried about the ecology and the waste of energy we cut your air conditioning when you were not inside the room.
The air conditioners are powerful enough to refresh the room in just 10 minutes.
As you said so well in your review, you were letting the air-conditioning on in the room for several hours, for no one. You did this even in the morning while you were at breakfast. You also left the air conditioner running several times since the early afternoon eventhough you would only return to your room in the evening around 9pm, 9.30pm.
People do as they want, that is quite normal, and we make it a point of honor to respect that.
We just ask that you be respectfull towards us, as well as for the efforts we make to satisfy you, as we do with our guests.
We are delighted that the end of your stay turned out to be better, and regret this misunderstanding.
Sincerely, Management.
