A pleasant surprise

I had heard horrible things said about Papeete and was prepared for the worst. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to find it was not half as bad as purported.

The cons:
it's a city, it's not a Polynesian postcard or a resort
Its very expensive and service is not particularly good

the Pro's;
Easy to get around
Lots of shops and restaurants

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Compact, easy to get around
