Our Opinion

The Opoa Beach hotel, which offers less than 10 bungalows, is a lovely little private resort. The bungalows are bright, airy and very comfortable. A little off the beaten track, the resort is also famous for its good French food and cocktails. This place offers a perfect level of relaxation, with activity on hand, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
