Hotel Tahiti Nui
Travel Blogs from Papeete
Zurück auf Tahiti sind wir wieder in die Backpacker-Welt "eingetaucht" und haben in einem Hostel mit Shared Bathroom sowie Gemeinschaftsküche übernachtet. Der Ausblick und Komfort waren zwar nicht mit unserer Unterkunft auf Moorea vergleichbar, aber das Frühstück mit Baguette und Obst um Einiges besser als fettige Croissant- und Kuchenteilchen. …
The Championships started on Monday but not until 3pm. Fletcher and I went for a walk along the waterfront and to the market in the morning. The harbour is interesting with many different boats of all shapes and sizes. It was different to see the roller shutters up and the shops offering their wares. The big focus here is on Tahitian pearls. These …
We left Adelaide on Saturday, June 1st anticipating a long 2 days of being in transit. We first flew to Melbourne and then had a four hour wait, fortunately in the Qantas Business Lounge. Here we had a sit down meal of Chicken Laksa washed down by a very nice Tasmanian Sauv Blanc. We then had a three hour flight to Auckland. With changes in time …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Tahiti Nui Papeete
This is a comfortable hotel. Our double room has a balcony overlooking the street and the furniture and bed are very comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and well appointed. It is also situated with short walking distance of the waterfront and the ferry to Moorea albeit on a very noisy main street.
However, there are a few things which detract from its appeal. At night the corridors are very dark with minimal lighting making it dangerous as there are raised walkways. The lift is also lethal. On the first night we arrived, one of the lifts was out of order and though it was supposedly fixed the next day a goup of our friends were in the lift when it fell 2 floors from Reception to the car park beneath. They said the emergency communication wasn't working and they were lucky someone came along quickly to discover them. The other lift's door closes so quickly I have been caught several times and it hurts. It is a wonder noone has been injured by it.
From others comments the main restaurant has good food but it is very expensive and has very small portions. We tried the buffet breakfast the first day and it was awful. Stale cornflakes, some patisseries and cold coffee. We did not return
