Great place, although a little bit far from town. The buses are not that convenient. The pool is nice, the rooms are large, well appointed and clean. The garden is really nice and it is easy to cross the road to go for a swim and snorkel in the lagoon. Nice fruit stalls just next door.

We spent 4 nights at Pension de la Plage. Vincent and Anne-Marie (hosts) had responded to all our pre-arrival e-mails and questions promptly, providing advice to help us plan our stay. My mother arrived a day before us, and, being Easter, Vincent assisted her to hire a car from a local rental agency. The rooms had everything we needed (we... More

My fiance and I booked our stay with Vincent seven months before our trip. After a 14-hour red-eye flight, we arrived at Pension de la Plage exhausted and in desperate need of showers. We were dropped off by a taxi driver at 6am and told the reception desk would open at 8am. After rolling our luggage through the mud (there's... More

Greeted by two barking dogs, who also woke us each morning. Shabby and basic. Uninviting pool and scruffy poolside area. Proprietors pleasant and helpful . Quite good restaurants within easy walking distance. Near beach, but part rocky shore and murky sea.

You need to remember two things then you stay on Tahiti island: there is no tropical-paradise-beach vacation available like we see on many popular websites; there is no 24/7 care about tourist and getting all you want for your money. Tahiti is for living and discovering. Pension De La Plage is a small, around 10 bungalow-like rooms with big windows... More

Tahiti is expensive like Paris is expensive. We were shocked by the cost. At Pension de la Plage you can save because they have a kitchenette which we used a lot. At the bigger hotels, they don't even have coffee makers but at PLP they give you a french press. There is a small grocery next door. And if you... More

This hotel is very well located, it only takes two minutes to get to one of the wonderful white sand beaches. Managers are very friendly and helpful, always ready to give a good advice. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. There is a small kitchen with all you need.

We spent two nights there and it is as it is called a pension, so the rooms are small and simple but with everything you need and clean. The kitchenette and shower seemed very old but were working fine. We especially enjoied the atmosphere at the breakfast place, although we had our first contact with polynesian prices and found the... More

Three nights at Pension de la Plage, and were pleasantly surprised at the overall quality, considering the very reasonable prices for French Plynesia. The hosts, Vincent and Anne-Marie are so friendly, helpful and accommodating, he even taking us to the downtown Papeete area, rather than our having to wait for the bus, or taking an expensive taxi. In private, nicely... More
