  • Nice little park which, unfortunately, is often the place of homeless... In addition, pools can also serve as "bathtubs" to these same people; This is understandable, but he should pay attention to the younger ones who may not want to see naked people.

  • Hidden good steak house is inside the park
  • Lovely little park
  • Small pleasant Park, with a small river that defines it, a shame that children's games are broken.

Where to stay in Papeete

The best selection of hotels in Pape'ete is concentrated in the vicinity of the docks--a vibrant area with plenty of nightlife, and in close proximity to the bustling market. Options range from pricey international hotels to very affordable bed and breakfasts and family-run boarding houses. A little farther afield (and much higher up the price range), luxurious five-star resorts offer private beaches, pools, and bungalows above the gently lapping waves of the lagoon.
