I stayed at the Pearl Lodge over New Year. It is a delightful place with lovely small infinity pool and well appointed and lovely bungalows. I didn't eat there much but when I did the food was good. The view from this hotel is spectacular. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere easy and it's probably the smartest place to stay on Hiva Oa. I went on a couple of day trips from the hotel and organised by the hotel and both were excellent, but would have been better if I understood more French (there are English speaking guides on the island).
The hotel is smart but in some places eg around the pool it's tired & there is a need for a bit of maintenance. What you should know is that the hotel is not near the village or near anywhere in particular so if you want to go out it's either a long hot walk or the hotel will readily take & collect you (& charge you). The hotel management will readily organise any excursions or trips to other islands for you, but you should check how much commission they are charging. They organised a boat to Fatu Hiva for us and initially charged a 25% mark up which is a lot of money, this both shocked and angered me when I found out. They made it easy but I could have saved a small fortune just doing it myself (which isn't that hard). So go with your eyes open, knowing where the place is and enjoy; its a lovely spot.
