This was our departure port. We spent 2 nights in an over-water bungalow at the Intercontinental Tahiti. Despite the less than stellar reviews the room was great. The view of Moorea was lovely. The biggest complaint I have seen is that it is near the airport. This was NOT a problem for us. Only once when I was out of the lanai in the early morning and a big jet was leaving did I hear anything and it was not a problem. The food was OK and very expensive. Read Less

We boarded the ship on a Sunday when most of the island stores are closed. We stayed over night at the Tahiti Pearl resort in Arue which was nice. Taxi to ship cost $23 for two people with luggage. Embarkation was very easy!

Beautiful Paradise. Very nice and friendly and relaxed native inhabitants. Only drawback are that prices there are extremely high. For example, a single, small plastic flower hair clip cost $10 American dollars.

Drove up into the lush green areas of the mountains. Saw waterfalls, he fed the blue-eyed eels in a river. We could swim at one spot.

My two-star opinion of Tahiti is meant for Americans/Canadians only, for the simple reason that Hawaii is so much closer, so much less expensive (Kaui is very similar), and you don't need to know French. Aussies/Kiwis, instead of ... Read More
My two-star opinion of Tahiti is meant for Americans/Canadians only, for the simple reason that Hawaii is so much closer, so much less expensive (Kaui is very similar), and you don't need to know French. Aussies/Kiwis, instead of Hawaii, go to Tahiti instead. By the way, a LOT of Ozzies aboard the Paul Gauguin, I'd say about 20-25% of the passengers. Read Less

The town was ok, others talked us out of taking ferry to Moorea (we should not have listened). We walked out of town and found some nice black sand beaches with clean water

The city is a quick walk from the wharf. Very hot, humid and wet and seemed dirty and a bit seedy!
