There is truly nothing great about that place. It was enough to stay for a night to catch the ferry in the morning. The breakfast was really basic and the fruits didn’t look good after all. The room was basic. The bathroom’s ceiling was all over with mold. In the morning a bird was waking us up, since he somehow... More

Stayed here a couple of days. The room was good size, balcony, big toilet/shower, old A/C. Breakfast was the best we've had in Polynesia, but nothing compared to Europe standards. Wifi in common areas. The location is a little walk away from City and harbour. (10-15min) It's located in the end of a relatively dark street. The pool area was... More

It was easy to get to the Ahitea from the airport however we arrived at night and everyone was sleeping and we had to sleep on the couch until morning. Communication was limited for English speakers. There was one woman that spoke English that was around during the day. This property is a guest house with more of a hostel... More

We stayed 2 nights in ahitea lodge. Compared to other hotels in (with varied assessments) you get good value for money. The bed in our basic room (4) was hard and a bit small and the fan could hardly change the heat at night. The bathroom is basic but clean. Breakfast was good with lots of fresh fruits and homemade...

Stayed 4 days, reasonable price and comfortable accommodation, Family run B&B. Staff were helpful: use of fridge and some kitchen facilities to make other meals. Breakfast typical continental, fresh fruit. Pool well maintained and essential as January is HOT. 15 minute walk to town center, some stores for food nearby. Food is expensive in Tahiti.

I had booked the lodge because I thought it was closer to the ferry than the Sarah Nui hotel but I don't think it is, and Sarah Nui is a lot nicer and the area to walk into town better. Locals have said it's not unsafe but not very pleasant at night because it's a poorer area. I went out... More

It's cheap and you get what you have paid for. We didn't expect much but it is still below our expectation. If you are looking for basic and budget accommodation, it might be your option. The room doesn't look as good as it is on the photo. The breakfast was basic too so we didnt have any.
