Best Value Hotels in Moorea, French Polynesia

View all Moorea Hotels

French Polynesia consists of over 100 islands, the best-known being Bora Bora, Tahiti, and Moorea -- a mountainous island with a relaxed, laid-back feel. Travelers headed to Moorea will first need to fly to Papeete, Tahiti, then take a 10-minute local flight or a 45-minute ferry to Moorea. It's expensive and time-consuming to get to, but there are several hotels around the island that deliver excellent value. Take a look at the top value hotels in Moorea, French Polynesia.

  1. Hotel Les Tipaniers is a fantastic option for budget travelers in Moorea. Located on the tip of Opunohu Bay, the hotel sits directly on one of Moorea’s most beautiful beaches, where there are free kayaks and rental snorkel gear available. The two-pearl property is well-kept, and has an authentic Polynesian feel, with thatched-roof bungalows. There aren’t many on-site amenities, like a pool, spa, or fitness center, but there are two restaurants, one on the beach. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, though it can be spotty from time to time. The hotel serves free breakfast daily, and also offers bicycles for guests to use. One major drawback is rooms’ lack of air-conditioning. 

  2. Hotel Hibiscus is a solid value option for travelers seeking simple accommodations in Moorea. At this beachfront property, guests can choose to stay in authentic thatched-roof bungalows or air-conditioned rooms. The former can be hot and buggy, while the latter tend to resemble college dorms. Either way, freebies like daily breakfast, parking, and fast Wi-Fi, and the location within walking distance of convenience stores and restaurants, make Hibiscus a formidable contender in its category. The beach isn’t the nicest, thanks to the strange concrete wall that runs across it, but there is a mid-size pool.

  3. Not much has changed since this value-oriented establishment first opened its doors in 1962; the dated decor and lack of modern amenities are immediately noticeable. But the hotel is a Moorea institution, and its stunning location on Cook’s Bay and affordable nightly rates attract guests year after year. Plus, freebies like Wi-Fi, kayak and snorkel gear, and a weekly Polynesian show are definite perks. 

  4. One of the oldest hotels on Moorea, Hotel Kaveka is 25-room, three-pearl property on beautiful Cook’s Bay. Individual bungalows are decorated with authentic Polynesian decor, and some have multiple beds to accommodate families. There’s a small beachfront, and an on-site restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but otherwise there’s not much to do. However, Kaveka’s central location in Cook’s Bay means it’s easy to get out and explore the island.
