Room was very basic, but clean and safe and centrally located. Air conditioner works well esp for very hot and humid weather. Water pressure was excellent. Our room located at the back of the hotel was very quiet for a central business location. Walking distance...More
We stayed here a few days ago, bc we flew in at 10pm, and took the ferry the next morning to moorea. The lady at the front desk was very nice, and the entrance of the hotel was cute.. very tahitian/island feel. The check in...More
We booked this for a quick overnight stay - arriving late from Auckland and due to go to Bora Bora the next day. Even so, the Tiare was a disappointment. Basically, everything looked grubby and in dire need of a good clean and/or refurbishment. It...More
I get that its a great price for the market, good location as well. But a foam filled pillow that is so broken down you can feels the hundreds of pieces of foam rubber that used to be a solid core, Groos slober sponge, YUCK....More
the hotel is well used to late arrivals, we arrived at about 3am, the breakfast was basic but good, the room was clean and pleasant with a great view but too hot to sit outside, the location is great, we would stay there again

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!
