I stayed at Fare Suisse during a trip around French Polynesia in October/November 2010. So, apologies Beni for the lateness of my review! On arrival at the airport, I was picked up by Beni and taken direct to Fare Suisse. Amazing service, especially considering I didn't arrive on the island until nearly midnight. Accommodation was immaculate throughout and it was...

If comfort and ease of mind are two things you look for when choosing a place to stay while on vacation, then look no further than the Fare Suisse. We had the luxury of stumbling across Beni's site when looking for a place to stay while in Tahiti and instantly upon meeting him at the airport we realized we had...

We stayed for one night on our return from Bora Bora before flying to New Zealand the next day. found this property via trip advisor and can only agree with all the other reviews . Beni picks you up at the airport and takes you back ( even at 5.30am ) The room was spotless, tastefully decorated and had all...

This is a warm and friendly place that is run with efficiency and reliabilty - a B&B like a Swiss watch. We stopped overnight when transiting to and from Moorea. What a relief when Beni was waiting to meet us at the airport late that first night after a long flight. Our room had the essentials (air conditioned, shower, no...

Fare Suisse is a great place to stay in Papeete. It is very conveniently located within walking distance of downtown but far enough out to be peaceful. Beni, the live-wire owner, can’t do enough to make you feel welcome and your stay enjoyable and his free transportation to and from the airport at any time of day is an unprecedented...

We arrived late at night at the airport and Beni came to pick us up which was really nice. When we arrived at the hotel we were really suprised by the nice house and the clean and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed it very much to have a nice hot shower after our long journey to tahiti. The bathroom was so...

I cannot say enough great things about my 2 night stay at the Fare Suisse in May 2011. Beni greeted me at the airport with a warm welcome and we had a delightful conversation on the 10 minute drive to the pension. Within minutes, he showed me to my room which was so perfectly appointed. Furnishings were simple, clean, and...

My wife and I stayed at Fare Suisse Tahiti B&B recently; in the beginning everything was fine but the next morning customer service went downhill. We had no hot water in our bathroom in the morning, I went to the front desk and called the owner Beni on the phone, who then asked me to hand the phone to the...

Hi Melissa Thanks for your message. Normally I do not write to the costumers review as I do absolutely accept their free opinion. But I do need to react when the message is more or less just unfair. But first of all I do not feel good whenever the guest is not comfortable at Fare Suisse. Our daily target is...

My wife and I were very pleased with the accommodation, very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere and overall hospitality. Location that is convenient to airport, complete with owner's personal airport shuttle service and easy walking distance to downtown waterfront, majestic government buildings, plus a supermarket around the corner. I only wish I can visit again in not too distant a future.
