This is a true review I really stayed there and I am not being paid to say this !!! Marks Place is a great inexpensive place to stay,it's not a resort,it's like you're very own home away from home. You couldn't ask for a better host, Mark knows everything about the island and can put you in touch with everybody on things to do and places to see. You do want to rent a vehicle while staying there makes travel much easier, but if not Mark will pick you up at the ferry dock he will accommodate you in anyway he can!! I will definitely stay at Marks Place on my return trip...
I arrived here after sun-down, having asked a couple of the locals in my broken French what place would they recommend; and worried that I'd be sleeping by the road on my first night.The first thing Mark did was pour me a glass of cold water, which was everything I could need and more. His passion and love for Mo'orea and his place is so infectious that throughout my stay I felt the most safe I had felt in a long time. He truly cares about his guest's experience, and he'd happily recommend any activity or restaurant to visit, depending on your passion or taste. From my experience of Mo'orea; it's the more mellow and relaxing of the Polynesian Islands. If you want to have an experience of paradise, stay here!
Mark's Place was a great accommodation option for our family of four. Mark puts a lot of effort into making his accommodation the best 'holiday park' style of accommodation that is available in Haapiti. The bungalows have been built by Mark himself and each has its own unique features and personal touches that are comfortable and interesting; our children loved the window seat beds and I liked the open eaves style of the bathrooms which reminded me of Bali and are so well suited to the warm climate. The bungalows are simply but adequately equipped with cooking facilities and they are very well maintained and kept clean. The site is located on the quieter side of Moorea and is not really within walking distance of restaurants and shops however this is something that we particularly enjoyed and was no problem as we had a hire car. Mark was more than hospitable and very informative about things to do in Moorea. We highly recommend Mark's Place and will definitely be back when we visit Moorea again!
Marks Place Moorea is wonderful. Very affordable. We stayed in Fare Opuhi and it was fantastic! Free wifi was also very strong. All the bungalows on this well maintained property are extremely clean, spacious, and very accommodating for every travelers needs. We vacationed here for two weeks and celebrated our wedding anniversary, having returned for a second time after honeymooning here 7 years ago! Our stay here was comfortable, romantic, and we can't wait to return. This pension is well run by owner Mark, who is always willing to guide you in the right direction to make your vacation dreams come true. If your looking for a place to to settle in and enjoy the beauty of Moorea, this accomodation is the place to be!
