About Papeete, Tahiti

The largest of the Society Islands in French Polynesia, Tahiti held a magical attraction for artist Paul Gauguin and writer Robert Louis Stevenson. To understand why, simply listen to the winds whistling through casuarina trees on a secluded black-sand beach, or stroll through beautiful botanical gardens and marvel at island flora.

Go to the day markets and the night food trucks. If you have the late night flight out, there is a restaurant just up the hill from the airport with a blue roof called Oceans that has great Chinese food with a local twist. It was delicious and a huge meal. We didn't do the hotel stay through the PG, but just checked our luggage at the airport for $9 per bag, and walked to the Intercontinental to spend the day there by the pool free of charge. The IC is pretty touristy but a pretty view of Moorea and a nicer place to spend the day than the airport.

Dissapointing, the Tahiti of my fantasies is not the Tahiti in real life. A big tourist trap, a bit dirty and expensive to boot.

If only in port for the day, take the ferry across to Moreea island. Then grab a taxi to a resort in the lagoon. The lagoon is just so clean and clear, great for snorkelling. Kid friendly and family safe.

Intercontinental is beautiful here. Raddison only ok. Be sure breakfast is included as it is $35.00pp! Absolutely DON"T go on the bus tour here after departing the ship. Totally boring. Opt to go directly to your hotel and enjoy the facilities.

Le Meridian hotel was not impressive and the personnel where not helpful. Also, it was out of the way, not really in Papeete. Next time we will stay at the Intercontinental. It is near the Papeete Market which is full of foods and arts and crafts and black pearl jewelry etc.

I really did not care for Papeete. The area where the ship docks and surrounding store areas could be cleaner. There was really not much to buy unless you were in search of pearls. Most everything is very expensive and it is not a shoppers paradise. As for tours, not really much to see that I would consider interesting.
