Basic amenities for the price and average service. No jug to boil water and no tea or coffee but other than that it was somewhere to sleep and shower. We arrived in the middle of a storm and had a day trip away so did...More
We book this hotel after getting off a cruise ship and having to spend the entire day on Tahiti before our flight home.

Decent for budget travellers, I wouldn't want to stay on Tahiti for more than a couple of nights but if in town this is a good option if you want out of Papeete. Clean, serviceable and functional rooms. Down side is road noise but this...More

When we visited Pension de la Plage Tahiti in December, 2016, transportation from airport to pension on arrival and pension to airport on departure was arranged by the pension. Not sure if it was included in basic room price or not. Generally, public transit in French Polynesia is unpredictable. If the bus is already full, it will drive past you and one never knows when the next one might come. Pension de la Plage is quite a distance from Papeete which is the main centre. On other Polynesian islands, hitch hiking is part of the culture and next vehicle to pass you will give you a ride. No one just drives by unless their vehicle is totally full. But, I don't recall seeing people hitch-hiking on Tahiti Island. Car rentals are expensive in Polynesia and be prepared to pay $100 per day. We rented a car for just three days on Tahiti and also rented on Bora Bora, Tahaa, Huahine and, Moorea. Find this to be good value. 4x4 excursions are available on all the islands, including Tahiti. Majority of times, one sees the back of a small truck with seats facing each other. So, you get a sore neck from twisting around to see the scenery but, what you see most is the people sitting across from you. Rental car, you have nice air conditioning and you go at your own pace with front window view.
