How do you rate it? A solid "A" climate for me... a bit wetter than desired but otherwise.. fabulous

Here is another site which gives more climate data.. although still don't know sunshine hours but judging by the length wet season.. probably can't be too high.

Papeete, Tahiti Climate Information - ClimateTemp.info, Making Sense of Average Monthly Temperature & Weather Data with Detailed Climate Graphs That Portray Average Rainfall & Sunshine Hours

Record high is 34.5C
Record low is 14.9C

I imagine record highs are somewhere in the mid to upper 90F range, it being on an island and all.

Precipitation looks good but the highs are too high! The lows are acceptable for a tropical climate but I'd prefer slightly lower annual average(20C is good) Solid grade of D for me.

F, similar climate to Darwin but its dry season is even shorter. This means that we're at the border of F- territory as a result, but it may receive some respite from humidity at times.

Depends on sunshine.
I'd say 1800-2400, so that would be A-

One of the best climates in "France" IMHO (I know - that's cheating somehow )

Too hot, too humid, seasonless, with no relief. An automatic F from me.

C. Too hot for my tastes. For lowland tropical climates I prefer winters to be markedly cooler than summers with highs in the upper 70s F. But I would be really interested in seeing what the highlands of Tahiti are like.

About 2700 hrs according to this: Papeete, Tahiti Climate Guide, French Polynesia | World Climate Guide

Although they got the temp data completely wrong, so I don't know how reliable this source is.

Five months with less than 100 mm is a fairly prolonged dry season by South Pacific standards, so I don't think it's out of the question.

No doubt RWood will have some idea. I tried looking up MeteoFrance but it's all in French and not at all straight-forward to use.
