One night stop over
We just used this lodge as a one night stay over from travelling from Moorea to catch an early flight. The owners of the lodge were great and did everything to make our stay comfortable, including organising a taxi to the airport. Used pool which was clean and pleasant. The rooms and facilities again were clean and tidy but basic. The hotel is close to the port, on a side street in an ‘interesting’ part of the town. We chose not to go out in the evening to find somewhere to eat.

Good lodge in a poor neighborhood
Bottom Line Up Front: Ahitea Lodge is a decent place to stay if you're in Papeete for a night. If you're on Tahiti for an extended stay be warned that this place is in the middle of a bad neighborhood. I stayed at Ahitea Lodge because it was low cost and had decent reviews. The lodge itself lived up to expectations. The continental breakfast was enjoyable. It was basically half of a baguette with jam and butter, coffee, and juice. The rooms were clean and had AC, and the bed was comfortable enough. Having to use a shared bathroom was only a minor inconvenience once, but otherwise not a problem. The operators unfortunately do not speak much English. There is no place to park a rental car as far as I can tell. The neighborhood sucks. I wanted to experience Tahiti without breaking the bank. I figured I could walk around the closer parts of Papeete, enjoy whatever was nearby, and pay for excursions as necessary. The walking around part was not fun. Ahitea Lodge is buried deep in a residential zone, and the nearest intersection leading out is constantly occupied by groups of tough guys who I was later informed were "just" drug dealers. I had to leave the lodge to get food, and walking through that neighborhood made me nervous, especially with all the stares I got. I was never out after dark. When it came time to checkout I got a cab, even though the dock is only 4 blocks away. If you want to stay someplace where you are free to ramble about I recommend staying someplace else.

Noisy but friendly
Noisy as you can hear everything from roosters to neighbors We arrived late and were tired but were woken up very early by the noise. Staff is very friendly.
