At the end of a South Pacific cruise with Ponant, my wife and I stayed the day at the Tahiti Airport Motel (Faa’a, Tahiti; phone +689 40 50 40 00, tahitiairportmotel.net) on March 19, 2019.

Booked online, our room was a deal at $118 for the afternoon and evening (no cancellation allowed). We checked in at around 2 p.m. and had a place we could spend the day and take a nap until leaving for our 11:59 p.m. flight to Los Angeles.

An overnight stay there would have cost $172. Other hotels in town started at $200.

Not a Hilton or a Sheraton, this motel is more like a Holiday Inn or an average Ramada, but it was clean, the people were nice, and it did the job.

The center of town was a $5 taxi ride away. More importantly, Faa’a International Airport (PPT) was only a short walk from the motel’s reception area.
