The Royal Tahitien is a solid choice for budget accommodation near downtown Papeete. The rooms are simple and clean, with a retro-sixties style. We love the well-kept gardens and koi ponds, friendly, helpful staff and delightful restaurant. The black-sand beach is not really the best spot for swimming and lounging, but the sound of the waves certainly adds to the Polynesian ambience when sipping a well-mixed cocktail at the hotel bar.
