I traveled with my mom and my 12 year old son.If you're looking for a great pension/hotel in downtown Pape'ete, THIS is your place! I am a return visitor, and every time, I'm more satisfied. Vaiana is prompt to respond to emails and extremely professional in regards to arranging a ride for you from the airport. She is friendly, speaks... 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.

I found Papeete itself not very charming. The more pleased I was to check in at this little lodge. It has could beds, furniture in rooms that make you feel a bit home and a nice and sizable swimming pool. The best: In contrast to most other hotels it is really quite. You need to walk 7 to 10 minutes... More

This place is great. Apprx 1km walk from ferry terminal. The walk to the lodge is not the greatest. Poor community, groups of kids at corners, stray dogs. Its manageable during the day BUT would be very wary at night. Mind you this is 'real' Tahiti not the globalized version. The lodge is located down a cul de sac. The... More
