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.
