Was in Tahiti a few weeks ago, and thought it was a total and utter dump, whos only useful purpose was as a jumping off point to the other islands.

Spent the night in Moorea, that was pleasant.

Additionally the food was pretty lousy (in both Tahiti and Moorea), especially having flown in from New Caledonia which was much more french influenced.

From Tahiti I flew to Easter Island. Now that was cool!

You should spend time in Bora Bora. The lagoon is spectacular.

I thought Easter Island was a dump. The town is tiny and ugly. The island is barren. The hotel are as expensive as Tahiti. The moai is cool but there are not many of them. Besides Tongariki and Raraku, the rest of the ahu is boring.
