Mosquitos, you have to bring your spay with you, otherwise they will eat you alive, and lizards in the balcony, which is normal on an island, but they freaked me out.
We had a one night stay in InterContinental Tahiti Resort on our way to Bora Bora, we arrived at night, and the reception guy was really sweet, they immediately escorted us to our room, we took a King Room with Lagoon View, and we woke up to a beautiful view of the beach.
the room is big, and clean, the room service was fast, their club sandwich is delicious, and their WIFI is fast.
The breakfast buffet was huge, everything you want is there, and the food quality was amazing. The location is five minutes from airport, so it was convenient for us.
when we came back from Bora Bora, we had a 7 hours layover in Papeeti, and the airport is really bad to stay at, so we decided to go back to InterContinental Tahiti Resort, we had lunch there by the pool, and we bought 24 hour internet access which was really cheap, and before we know it 4 hours have passed.
