My overnight stay at Fare Suisse was very convenient and pleasant. I arrived at Papeete in the early evening and travelled to Moorea the next morning. Beni picked me up at the airport, albeit a few minutes late, and drove me to the Fare Suisse guest house. The accomodations are spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was baguette, cheeses, cold... More

I can't thank the couple of Fare Suisse enough for the welcome we had at 03.00 a.m. after our plane beeing 6 hours late. We were greeted, driven to the B&B safely and tucked in to our comfortable beds. Nice complimentary continental breakfast next morning and all the help you can get to find your way around Papeete and onwards... More

Just as described by other reviewers, I found the Fare Suisse a great place for a night-time stopover on our way out to Bora Bora. Although it took us a very long time to get through Customs at Fa'a airport in Papeete, Beni was still waiting for us (with our name on a sign), and he drove us out to... More

The place is very clean and comfortable, positioned quite well in Papeete. Beni (the owner) is very friendly, even if at times he seems to be a bit overwhelmed by the number of things to do and by taking care of all the guests.

This was our first stop on a round-the-world trip, and Fare Suisse was just incredible! Beni was super friendly and helpful, and I'd really recommend the trip to the beach for snorkelling - absolutely beautiful, being surrounded by rainbow coloured fish! Apologies for the super delayed review..So it was really January 2010 that we stayed there.

I found Fare Suisse on Trip Advisor where I always check before traveling. The rave reviews turned out to be just as they read. Beni, a young dynamo, was waiting at the airport and quickly transported us the 10 minutes to his pension. Everything was clean and the service was great. When one guide who was to take me to...

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... More

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.

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.
