      Historical Traveler Reviews Fare Suisse Tahiti Papeete



      I read about Fare Suisse on the internet and contacted the owner Beni by email after checking his website. We were picked up at the airport and transported to a beautiful place surrounded by gardens. Beni is a VERY friendly and nice guy who helps as much as humanly possible. He speaks at least fluent German (and Swiss German if you count this...), English, and French.

      The room and bathroom we booked were spotless and new. The Fare Suisse is located in a secluded area behind a remote controlled gate (all guests get a control), i.e. it is very safe. The commons area of the guesthouse (terrace, kitchen, seating area) is fully equipped with cookware, refrigerator, tables, chairs etc and a great place to spend free time. Walking to downtown is about 15 min, walking to one of the few supermarkets in Papeete is about 3 min, a great advantage if you plan cooking yourself.

      We recommended the place to others who agreed that it was classes better than where they stayed in Papeete before.

      To avoid disappointments: This is not a full service hotel, so if you expect daily room service, 24h reception area (even though one can reach Beni at any time by phone, he lives next door...), or a bar don't go there. The room we stayed in was not air conditioned but the huge fan made the temperature comfortable.

      I can HIGHLY recommend the place!!! There appears to be nothing even remotely comparable in Papeete for this price.

      The perfect place in Papeete


      Fare Suisse is by far the best place to stay in Papeete. From the from the free airport pick up, to the beautiful rooms and great location, I couldn't have asked for any more for my three day stay in Tahiti. I will definitely stay here if I'm ever in Papeete again!

      Beautiful house in paradise


      What i would say is it was a real pleasure to come there, very nice spacious light and clean house where you feel directly comfortable. Beni was very nice with us, very good welcoming. One of the best house i stayed and for a minimum price. Don't hesitate !!!!

      Warm Welcome in Tahiti's Fare-Suisse


      From the moment Beni (the manager of Fare-Suisse) met us at the airport, in the middle of the night; he

      greeted us with a big smile and we knew we were in good hands. The

      accommodation was clean, bright, open and way above what we had expected. I

      would recommend fare-suisse to anyone visiting Tahiti. Thank you Beni for

      looking after us.

      Loved Fare suisse


      stayed at Fare Suisse in Tahiti Fantastic stay. The accommodation was excellent!!!!! And this was within our budget too. I hope that more and more people are aware of this very special place.

      Rooms were very clean. Hospitality was exceptional. It was close to the CBD. A stones throw to other islands. I would defiantly stay again.

      After being in Los Angeles amongst the kaos, it was a way to kick your feet up and totally relax. The ambiance of the place made you feel like you were defiantly on a tropical island with palm trees filled with coconuts, kids loved it. Once again, thank you!!! Ben was a true host.

      A lovely place to stay


      My family and I stayed at Fare Suisse for only 1 night but we found it to be a comfortable and spotlessly clean accommodation with very affordable prices.

      We arrived very early in the morning but this was no problem-we were met at the airport and taken to the guest house for free where we were allowed into our room straight away-a big plus when travelling with two small children !

      Beni,the owner was very friendly and helpful-providing information & free maps etc.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

      Ideal Guest House in Papeete


      The friendliness, efficiency and cleanliness of this guest house were great. We were met punctually at the airport at 8.00pm by Beni who had a big smile and a big sign with our names clearly written on it. We were driven to the lovely guest house where we had an airy, very pleasantly furnished room with two double beds. The bathroom was next door and we also had the use of modern kitchen/lounge/dining facilities. Beni was a charming host and extremely helpful with regard to tips on Tahiti, arranging sightseeing and other activities , exchange rates, local customs etc. The price of Eur75.- for the two of us together not only included the airport transfer and accommodation but also the transport to our cruise boat the next day. We felt very at home and would recommend the Fare Suisse to anyone as excellent value and only 10-15 minutes walk from the Papeete Market and Centre of town. In spite of this, it is in a quiet, residential area and apart from the odd rooster, there was nothing to disturb a good night's sleep. Breakfast was available if we required it and a supermarket was just down the road. Ideal acommodation and location in a city that has exorbitant hotel prices!

      Muy recomendable


      Estuvimos en Fare Suisse en diciembre de 2006 y la experiencia fue muy positiva. Beni es muy atento y el sitio es muy acogedor: una casa entre jardines a escasos minutos del centro de Papeete. Tuvimos la oportunidad de pasar con ellos la cena de Nochevieja a pesar de que ya no estábamos alijados en la casa, y no hay palabras para describir su amabilidad. Muy, muy recomendable.

      Fabulous Stay with Fare Suiss


      Fare Suisse is the ultimate accommodation in Papeete, Tahiti at the lowest price.

      I can't overemphasize the quality of hospitality. Fare Suisse brought kindness with flair to my travels. I was welcomed by Beni, the hostel manager, at the airport. He picks-up every guest with a warm Tahitian welcome. I was well-informed and made to feel at home right away. Beni gladly helped me with any questions I had and offered his genuine advice.

      The pension itself is beautiful and immaculately maintained. Fare Suisse provided all the luxuries of home. It is in an excellent location of the Capital.

      Fare Suisse definitely surpassed my expectations. I would make it a point to return.

      Thanks Beni!!!

      Nice place to stay


      the guesthouse is so comfortable on the right spot in Papeete

      just at easy (5 min.!) walking distance from the charming harbour site: a restfull and beautiful place in a cool breeze.

      ... quite honestly. Natalie kept saying things like “I can't believe this” “it is just the first day of their cruise” and finally I thought “Does she think someone is really overboard?” So I told her, “You know this is just a drill right? They said 'for exercise’”. HAHAHA She thought it was real! It was so funny because we just were both so confused for different reasons and half way into our uniforms. We were checking ...

      Lesson 15:

      It is much nicer to drive passed one of the numerous fires that burn than it is to have to walk through it.

      Lesson 16:

      Sometimes an old lady with no teeth on the beach just wants to give you some shells.

      Lesson 17:

      Tahiti is a very sexy place. It is no wonder it bewitched many a mutineer and passing whaleman. Male and female ...

      ... around: When we awoke we opened the curtains in the living room and discovered that we had a balcony overlooking the beach. The view of the beach was masked by tall trees but we could see the waves breaking on the beach which shelved steeply in places. The sand was, disappointingly, black sand and the sea looked very dark indeed. We discovered later when we walked on the beach that the sea is so powerful as it hits the beach that it churns up the sand and ...

      ... It is the rainy season here and we have showers every day, sometimes they last just 5 minutes. We have a couple of kayaks, a SUB and a paddleboat that we use to go to the motu (island) that we can see from our beach. The motu has a Lagonarium with a great variety of coral and fish, including sharks and stingrays: We are (almost) not afraid of swimming with them.

      One of the days, we drive to ...

      ... days relaxing. And that's pretty much all we did. We went for a dive in Tahiti to a channel in the barrier reef where there was an airplane and a ship wreck. Great dive! No coral, but tons of fishes we've never seen and the ship wreck and airplane were cool. Quite strange seeing a airplane underwater, I like to say its as weird as seeing a boat in the sky...but Jackie says I'm wrong. Our last morning we got in a shuttle to the airport with some rich snobs from ...
