Best things: welcome fruit, free bicycles , beautiful decor, private beach area, jetty, kayaks.
It's very far from anywhere, so will cost $$ for taxi but it's possible to get public bus to resort but they don't have any info on timetable.
Kitchen equipment is very basic but you could buy extra at the supermarket.

Great little place away from masses”
A small bungalow resort a bit away from most other hotels and places. Local bus stops outside. We rented a neat beach front bungalow. Not fancy but great for us and it had a kitchen and nice seating areas inside and out. No nice beach, but nice dock to dive from, with friendly sharks laying around. Cool ! Free kayak and bike rental is great ! Close to nicer beaches, snorkel areas, mountain trail, small restaurants, food store.
Would stay there again.

a total delightful surprise, December 2015”
location, owner, value
The value for what you get is most excellent. We returned from a week long catamaran trip and caught the ferry from Tahiti to Moorea. Linareva was on the west side of the island. We rented a car at the ferry location on the east side and off we went. 60kms (36 miles) is the distance around the island. We arrived at the resort and checked in. There are maybe 7 or 8 buildings which were mostly built for large groups and very nicely decorated and well-maintained. Our bungalow was for two people and had a kitchenette. The interior was clean with all that we needed which included a couple of resident geckos which didn't bother us. There was an honor bar with wine, beer, soda, and bottled water. We were told not to drink the tap water. We never bought any of the meals that the resort offered. There is one large grocery store on the island and many smaller markets. We cooked all our meals except one. Walked down the road to Daniel's pizza. It was excellent thin crust pizza freshly prepared in a wood-fired oven by a Frenchman. The grounds with grass, flowers, and fruit trees are kept neat and tidy. The snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding was most excellent. Bicycles are available too. All the equipment is provided without charge. You could exercise your choice for several miles if you wanted to. The reef around the island makes it possible. Dive equipment for rent and guides for hire are also on-site. The resort has a long jetty out to a drop off into the lagoon. Saw a 10 foot nurse shark, 3 black tip sharks, moray eel, octopus, sting rays, and colorful fish galore. The black tips were curious and would hang around the snorkelers. No one was frightened. The owner, Roland, was very friendly and made you feel welcomed and special. His staff was just as friendly. If we ever return to French Polynesia, we will spend all our time on Moorea at Linareva. We highly recommend Linareva Moorea Beach Resort. It really is a great value for the money.

Great location, good room, nice extras”
location, extras, views
After a very expensive pickup service I arrived at the resort. The owner showed me around the premises and explained everything nicely. The cabin was good; very large, useful kitchen, great balcony. only the mattress was ready for replacement.
All the little extras made it very nice to stay there; free kayaks, bikes, snorkeling gear, wifi. There's a pier so you can jump right in with the fish.
The view of the lagoon and the backdrop of the mountains is just breath-taking!
Breakfast is ok, nice fresh fruits.

Staff, beach and outdoor area
My mother and I stayed here for a few nights and we can't wait to come back!, the beach isn't that great however if you walk out on the wharf it has AMAZING snorkelling and swimming :)
The gardens are lovely and the staff are awesome :)

clean, comfortable, friendly staff
excellent. i had a lovely one bedroom cottage on the beach with a fully stocked kitchen. free bike was convenient to go a few km away to the atm, a few local restaurants. it is a little bit off the beaten path which is great but makes going around without a car a bit challenging.

Good value, big room, nice view
Wonderful place. We were here for 3 nights as part of a RTW trip. This was the relaxing part in the middle of all activities and traveling. We booked Studio Ocean View. Our room was 8-10m off the water with a beautiful view. They have 4 rooms this close to the sea and ~5 going a bit further away but still with nice views. Our room was big, clean, air conditioned with a kitchenette. You can order breakfast and dinner on your terrace but we didn't do it after all although we heard that the dinner was particularly good. Nice bonus was free kayak and snorkling equipment in our use. The snorkling right in fron the the hotel's pier was really cool and I did it 1-2 times a day. Also, they gave free bicycles to go into the supermarkets 1-2km away and we went to get fresh bread every morning. Daniel's Pizza 200m to the left from the hotel was as good as all the reviews had told. The service at the hotel was probably the best I've seen. They will kindly book you any tours and rental cars you wish. The owners really look like they've found the job they are keen about and that can be seen in the service level. The WiFi is not working in all rooms but they were tweaking it during our stay so that it would work on all terraces. Even in our terrace which was the furthest one from the lobby. If you are just relaxing in your holiday, you might not need to get out of the hotel as they have pretty much all you need. Usually I don't even think of this kind of an option but the kindness of the staff made me think of it in Linareva's case :)
I can't really complain about anything. Location is a bit far from anywhere except Daniel's Pizza and two supermarkets. We drove around the island and it seems there is no place where you can access necessary view points etc from one hotel so the location doesn't matter as much. If I ever get a chance to come back to Moorea because it's so far, location is the only thing that could make me go somewhere else, maybe in the Cook's Bay area, but Lina
