We stayed at the Pension de la Plage for 3 nights in September 2012 for the start of our honeymoon in French Polynesia. The bungalows are simple but nice and clean. The owner couple was very friendly and gave us tips where to have dinner or to find a supermarket. We also booked a 4x4 tour through them to visit the mountains of the island. The tour was really great and highly recommendable! The breakfast at the pension is simple but good, you have coffee, baguette, marmelade and cheese.
The beach which is not that beautiful is right across the street. We lent for free snorkeling stuff from the owners to go there.
The first day we went to visit Papeetee by the public bus. The owner explained us how to catch it, since there is no timetable or anything like that. The bus stop is just next to the pension, so we went there and just after 3 minutes waiting the bus arrived! So, this was a very cheap and easy way to go to the capital.
One afternoon, we spent at the pool of the pension, which is not that big but really nice and relaxing!
For a low budget stay we can recommend this pension.
