Did you use the search function for "Tahiti" under Tiki Travel already?
Here's my favorite, IF you like vintage (but clean) mid-century places:
The Royal Tahitian, a little outside of Papeete. I stayed there before I took the Aranui around the Marquesas in 2002, it has beautiful grounds, and is quaint and calm compared to some of the modern mega resorts:
An old matchbook
The main building's traditional Tahitian Tiki posts
The pool bar
Detail of pool bar
The breakfast room
...and don't forget to seek out the closed, deserted Hotel Tahaara when in Tahiti (BOT p.245), and take pictures of the giant Oceanic Arts Tiki! It will be in Tiki Modern, also.
