All of Hiva Oa's hotels and pensions offer various meal plans. If available, I would opt for a rate that includes breakfast only. You will likely have lunch on an excursion or at a "snack" in town while seeing the sights, so there is little point in paying for that in advance. I also like to dine out while here, so I don't pay for dinner, either.

The most remote place to stay is Pension Peheku'a (Chez Marie-Antoinette), in Puamau village on the far northeastern shore, at least 2 1/2 hours by road away from Atuona.
