This pension offers about 10 rooms around a small swimming pool in a nice garden, located close to the beach and the central ‘highway’ along the coast. You can choose for a normal room or a room with kitchenette. Budgetwise we think the kitchenette is probably better because we paid 1000 CPF for a basic breakfast (pp) and diner is quite expensive in Tahiti too. There is a large supermarket at walking distance. You also find some restaurants in the neighbourhood (amongst others a nice pizzeria).
The room is large, has a fan and is clean. We could use the transit room after checking out (shower and bagageroom).
The location is a bit of a minus considering the money you have to pay to get to the pension from the airport and vv (2000 CPF during the day, 3000 CPF nighttime). On Sunday there are no busses so we had to take a taxi to Papeete. Note: we were lucky because there were festivities celebrating the Chinese new year, but otherwise on a Sunday everything is closed. Also the Museum de Tahiti which is close to the pension, is unfortunately closed on Sunday (and Monday as well). A plus of the location is that is’t near a nice beach and if you want to do an excursion you will be picked up at the pension anyway so the distance from papeete doesn’t matter.
