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 not spend that much time there. Pool looked nice and if it was nicer weather would have gone for a swim. Right next to a Mobil station and we found somewhere to eat across the road.

We book this hotel after getting off a cruise ship and having to spend the entire day on Tahiti before our flight home.

The owners and staff went out of the way to make us feel comfortable. The pool is refreshing and rooms are large. There is a restaurant that services the hotel directly on the ocean. The room have a/c.

Due to no taxis available the night of my flight home, the owner went out of his way to take us to the airport.

This place is superb for those requiring simple, clean, friendly, relaxed accommodation. It is across the road from the best snorkeling on the island.. It has drinkable water, a delightful small swimming pool surrounded by palms and flowers, air conditioning and all facilities needed for a calm break in Tahiti. It is 5 minute walk from a shopping centre, with a decent supermarket, cafes, etc. 10 min taxi from the marina and 20 min from the airport. I simply cannot understand why anyone would pay 5 x as much to stay trapped in a resort when they could stay at somewhere like Pension de la Plage. Thank you to Vincent and his delightful family (plus dogs and rabbits!). I don't think we will ever return to Tahiti but we hope we can stay with you if we ever do!

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 is not really bad, but may bother light sleepers. Pool small but ok.
It is not easy to get around on foot and the beach opposite is really not that good. We would have struggled without our hire car to go anywhere worth going. If you do have the chance check out the Blue Banana restaurant ten minutes away by car. Don't bother with the sunset roulottes near the mareva they are not good quality and there are better ones that spring up nearer. Really good super U supermarket within walking distance.

Room Tip: The rooms furthest from the road although there aren't many

Spent three wonderful days here. Totally simple, with fridge,hot plate for cooking, if wanted. Start your day by walking north to the boulanger for excellent croissant and pan au chocolat. Then have the pension breakfast.
There is loaner snorkel equipment, but we had our own. Walk across the street, through the public parking lot and there is the lagoon. The farther out you go, the better the fish and corals. Easily forty, fifty kinds of each. Great visibility. We would go right to the barrier reef, for hours, coming back all prunish and chilled!! Some of the finest snorkelling ever for us! Better than anything we've seen in the Caribbean!
Don't miss the roast chicken roulotte at the traffic circle you passed on the way for croissants. A big chicken, roast potatoes and amazing gravy....1800 fpx. Closed Monday and Tuesday. We hitch hiked into Papeete one day, had to taxi back at 3200fpx after dark! No buses. Went for the pierside roulottes. Nothing outstanding and pricey when factoring in that taxi return. There are two other roulottes, crepes and pizza, by the pension, which we missed, as they were both closed on Tuesday!!
Yes, the pension is on the road. So turn on the music on your phone. Very low...comfortable bed.
There is a dehumidifier in the room which made for a very comfortable environment.
Your hosts are a friendly, hard working French Polynesian family.

Room Tip: 24 hour access pool a nice plus
