The room was great... the style just what I like.. local with enough modern bits. Large bathroom and the biggest bed. I don't understand ratings but it seems much better than two stars would indicate. There was more colorful and varied fish off the pier...More
Have just got back from Tahiti. Stayed for 7 nights at hotel Kaveka. Can't say enough about the fantastic time we had, the staff were awesome, restuarant relaxing and comfortable and the pier great to wander along while waiting for your meal to arrive. Yes...More
Whilst we did not have the best location of a bungalow, like a previous review, it was the one across from the bike stands, and by the entrance of the hotel, but we also did not mind. At night, (as in bedtime) no one is...More
We had 2 nites on Moorea (30 min ferry from main island). Lots of day trippers out there, but I'd suggest you stay over, as the price on the mainland will be same as Moorea and Moreea is 10 times better. Hotel Kaveka is owned...More

We take the ferry both ways between Papeete and Moorea. There are 2 ferries, the Terevau and the Aremiti, which are both located at the same dock in Papeete, but at neighboring docks on Moorea. The Terevau was the cheaper of the 2 last trip.
They both take about half an hour to get from one island to the other, but are much cheaper than inter-island air and you can take more luggage. The airlines are much more strict about luggage weight since the Air Moorea crash back in 2007.
Contact the hotel you will be staying at prior to travelling to see if they have a shuttle that can pick you up and how much it costs if it is not included. If not, the taxi will be the most convenient as well as the more expensive way to go, but as I recall, they charge a flat rate.
There is also the bus (Le Truck), but it is very unpredictable and undependable as far as when it will leave the dock area to go to the hotels as the drivers usually wait until they have a full load. You might end up waiting hours before they go- we sat there for 3 hours the last time we used it and said never again.
We did not use either last few trips as we now always rent a car for a day or two to do our shopping when we first get there and arrange to have them pick us up at the ferry or walk across the road to AVIS. Then we reverse the procedure on the way back, however, we always stay for at least 3 weeks and have our own cooking facilities.
Sorry I can't be more help.
