Whenever I think of Tahiti, good hotels come to my mind and this one can not be more distant than that.
I only stayed one night for an overnight stop between my flights but I got very disappointed with the hotel. It is very old...More
Located just across the street from the waterfront where our cruise ship had docked. Could walk, but may not wish to with luggage. We only paid $15 for a cab for 4 people plus our 4 large bags. The Hotel staff is friendly & room...More
Recently spent one night here 3 days ago before taking the ferry to Moorea, and love the place for its location. Walking distance to Food Rouloote, municipal market, many restaurants and shop; bank and ATM....very convenient. Our room located behind so it’s away from the...More
We stayed here for one night prior to leaving on a cruise. We arrived late on a horribly rainy night, and the front desk attendant was waiting for us. She was kind and check in was quick, but that’s about the best thing I can...More
Overall this is a basic hotel, but for those who have never been to papeete its a pretty quite town and people who stay here are likely to be transiting the next day to moorea or bora bora due to the limited time of flights...More

Congratulations on your wedding!
Food in Tahiti is expensive. We had breakfast included with our stay at Tahiti Tiara. But it was lots of baguette with some fruit & coffee. There was the option for one egg or some yogurt. But it was mostly carbs. Believe the meal would have cost $10 US.
We ate at Le Roulettes food trucks by the waterfront park for dinner. Great atmosphere & lots of choice. Meals were $10-15 each. There are lots of cafes with outside seating in Papeete. We didn't go to any high end restaurants there as we had great food in Mo'orea & on our cruise. If I were you l'd check out restaurants on TripAdvisor for whatever town you are in. Can't go wrong!
There are food vendors for lunch at the municipal market. Very crowded but nothing written in English!
There's also the option to pick up some food at the grocery store & have a picnic by the water.
There are boat tours that you can catch at the marina across from Tahiti Tiare. Again check out TripAdvisor for some guidance.
If you rent a car you can drive to Tahiti Iti to the south. Teahupoo is a big surfing beach there & worth seeing. La Plage de Maui (on Maui Beach) has fabulous seafood at the restaurant. Vanira Lodge is a beautiful resort up in the hills. They serve breakfast and dinner. It might be worth a night or two... but rent a spa room for the A/C!
There are many web sites that talk about the drive around Tahiti. Frommer's has a good site. You can stop to see water falls, museums, lots to see. Just try not to drive through Papeete during rush hour. It is insane!
Definitely take the ferry to Mo'orea. Cars are very expensive to rent there. Albert's Transport can do private or shared tours around the island. We used him to transport us to Sofitel. Also did a safari tour of the island. Great trip to Magic Mtn & Belvedere point. Dinner at Sofitel might be a good idea for some romance! They have entertainment, sometimes local dancers. Very good show. Beautiful setting. Only thing is sometimes service in the restaurant is poor. Other great restaurants on Mo'orea are Le Mahogany & Rudy's. Again, look on TripAdvisor to see what your choices are.
Hope this helps! Enjoy that beautiful part of the world!
