“Best value in Tahiti”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We stayed here for nearly three weeks with our two boys aged 11 and 9. This is the most economical way to enjoy this little piece of paradise. There is a busy road in front of the pension, but it never bothered us. It was in fact very handy to catch the air conditionned bus to Papetee and to the ferries. There is an excellent supermarket 15 minutes walk from the pension, and you can talk a stroll along the beach every morning to get fresh croissants for breakfast. The owners are very helpful and speak good english (they even went to the chemist to get us medecine when we all got sick) they will lend you snorkling gear for free, which my husband used for hours in the lagoon. On the other side of the road, along the beach, there are two 'roulottes' every night providing safe and delicious meals on wheels. Do go for the crepe and ask for the salted caramel sauce... The room are nice and bright, the kitchenette has everything you need and from the pool, you can watch paragliders about to land on the beach. This is a great place for a family on a budget who still wants to enjoy Tahiti.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a kitchnette and with shade in the moring so that you can enjoy breakfast on the...

I stayed at Pension de la Plage two times - before and after my trips to Bora Bora and Moorea. Both times I thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was spacious, clean and all that I needed. The kitchenette meant that I could prepare food in the room if I wanted to. But, you don't have to as there are small eating trailers ("roulets" I think in French) across the road and just a short walk down the road.

They provide a good breakfast under a thatched roof in the center of the hotel for those guests who'd like it - good value in my opinion and convenient.

I didn't use the pool but it was very popular with other guests. The beach is a short walk across the road and to the coast. The coast road is very busy, but I think that's the case all over the island.

Pension de la Plage is great value for money in Tahiti where you can often break the bank paying for a hotel. Vincent and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again without question.

I stayed at the Pension De La Plage for three nights in June 2012. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. Beach is across the street. Roulettes (Crepes and Steak) are also across the street in the evening hours. Next to the pension is a filling station with a small shop open 24 hours and supermarket, post etc. are located 5 minutes walk down the street. And also the museum is in walking distance. This all is very convinient - but don't count on the bus to Papeete. It's passing freqquently the pension (weekdays every 15 minutes), but you have to be lucky to get on one of it. I intended a day-trip to Moorea, catching the 9:15a.m. ferry from Papeete. I waited in front of the pension for a bus from 7:20a.m until 8:40a.m. and six busses passed by not stopping, because they have been full. That was frustrating (later I was able to get on a bus, but that was too late for the Moorea ferry and so I did only a sightseeing tour of Papeete). Near the pension is the Punaru'u Valley, which is intersting to visit. The first 2 km are not nice because you are going through an industrial area and also some wild rubbish dumps are on the way - but if you keep going and gets deeper into the valley it is going to be much nicer. It is a good option to spend a couple of hours, if you are bored of the beach and you want to avoid the costs of an expensive 4X4-tour.
I highly recommend Pension de la Plage for those, who have own vehicle. For people like me, who needs public transportation, you should keep in mind, that it can be difficult to get on a bus during morning hours. If that is not a problem for you, then I would recommend pension de la Plage as well.

My aunt and I stayed for 3 nights at Pension de la Plage before moving on to another island. Very reasonable price, clean, good location and great food. They have a pool that is kept immaculately clean. Also, great snorkeling right across the road in a park. For a small price we had breakfast and dinner under a thatched roof and the food was excellent.

We stayed here in late April for 9 days as part of our world tour. The managers (Vincent and hiswife) manage a very well run facility. The rooms are very clean. The breakfasts are good and the small pool is great. The Pension is located about 10 to 15 minutes from the airport by the beachIt is close to shops and other restaurants.

Vincent was particularly helpful in helping us with car hire and booking a mini break to Bora Bora.
This is an excellent hotel and we strongly recommend it.

This pension is greatly located a few kilometres outside Papeete and opposite a nice public beach. Rooms are clean and have a nice kitchenette with a fridge (you'll need it:-). Vincent and his wife are great hosts, and speak English as well. They know Tahiti well and can point out all places to visit on the island. The pool in the middle of the complex is a welcome relieve from the hot days and balmy nights. We spent 5 nights at the pension and would go back in a flash.

Room Tip: You'll need a rental car on Tahiti to get around to see the best spots. Actually, the best of Fr...

This pension is a haven from the traffic and bustle of Papeete. You have to cross a busy road to get to the beach, but it is excellent once you are there. Vincent was charming and helpful with arranging transfers, activities and car hire. The location has the advantage of being out of the city, but we had difficulty with transport ( the buses now stop running at 3pm and alas the 'trucks' are long gone). Vincent helped us to hire a car so that we could experience the roulottes. The place is clean and the kitchenette worked well for us. Shops are just along the road so it is easy and much cheaper to be self-contained. We thought the price was excellent for Papeete. Having a garden to relax in was a bonus.
