Rated 5 out of 5 by JackOZ Fabulous stay at Le Meridien Noumea
Had a divine 8 night stay at Le Meridien Noumea ( we extended by 2 days as didn't want to leave).
Couldn't flat the room, service and staff. had a top floor blue pacific ocean floor view room with the azure coral reef outside our window. The food was great...especially the seafood buffet and French wines with Jazz music and the very authentic Shogun Japanese restaurant with the best sushi and Teppanyaki I have had this side of Tokyo. The highlight for me was the beachside location and Wonderful pool and pool service. The octopus salad by the pool with Number 1s (the local brew) while reading about the south pacific and New Caledonia history made for relaxing days. The location in Noumea is the best right next to Anse Vata beach with some funky waterfront bars and restaurants and water taxis to the nearby Duck island . We also enjoyed taking a taxi to the Renzo Piano designed Cultural museum. All in all a perfect week with European style and romance in the South Pacific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Douges Amazing holiday destination
My Wife and I have recently returned home from having the most amazing 10 days in Noumea staying at Le Meridien. After reading some of the negative comments on trip advisor we went with an open mind, as my wife had never been to Noumea before and it had been 30 years since I had been.
We had nothing at all to worry about as this holiday would have to be one of the best, if not THE best holiday we have had. The hotel was beautiful, so clean and tidy and the staff were so friendly, always saying 'Bonjour' and very helpful.
The food was just devine with an abundance of food for breakfast, which meant we were spoiled for choice and ate far too much so this ended up lasting us most of the day. We sometimes had a late afternoon lunch on the lounge chairs by the beach which we ordered from the bar by the pool. We ate at the restaurants and have no complaints at all about the food. Cocktails were not disappointing either and the price was the same as you'd expect to pay at any of the Islands. For the beer drinkers - drink the local beer No 1 as any imported beer is very expensive, as my wife found out one day!
Palm Beach shopping centre is literally a 10 minute (if that) walk around the corner. There are plenty of different eateries to choose from and some lovely shops to walk around and look in.
There are lovely beaches nearby that are easy to walk to, which my Wife and I did each morning just to try to walk breakfast off. There is a Coffee Club, for the coffee lovers, at one of the bays (Citrons Bay) nearby which we frequented often.
For those needing to stock up on things from a Supermarket there is a mini type supermarket at Palm Beach or if you prefer to shop at a proper Supermarket there is a nice one at Port Plaisance, which is about a 30 minute or so walk from Le Meridien.
Bus services are great and usually on time with stops everywhere. It is cheaper to buy tickets from an outlet however there is not much difference in cost if you purchase them on the bus.
We definitely enjoyed every part of our holiday and time at Le Meridien and exploring Noumea. You can do as little or as much as you want so your holiday experience is entirely up to you and what you want it to be. I would honestly recommend Le Meridien, Noumea as a holiday destination to everyone and we both desperately want to go back!!! My wife's only regret is that she was not able to remember the 3 years of French lessons she learnt while at High School but knew enough to get by. I must also say that the bed we slept in would have to be one of the most comfortable beds apart from our own! We were definitely not let down by anything at all!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Busrm Paradise in Noumea
We book this hotel knowing that there had been some poor reviews. The people doing these reviews must have stayed at another hotel. The Le Meridian Noumea for us was simply wonderful. From the friendly staff in the hotel as well as the Sexton and L'Hippocampe restaurant just kept excelling with service and friendliness. We would recommend this hotel to any one. Thank you to your staff for making our holiday a wonderful experience.

The hotel will benefit from the extensive rennovations that are being undertaken. Once completed I am sure that that it will become an even more popular place to stay due to its setting and facilities and short walk to the Casino.The staff are having to cope with disruption but did an excellent job of still making you feel welcome. The only negative was having to wait an hour and a half until the 2.00pm check in time before I could go to my room. The staff did their best to compensate me for this by upgrading me to an ocean view room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Invrgill22 Very disappointing stay
4 1/2 star hotel? I don't think so! The ongoing work and lack of facilities made our stay very disappointing. Particularly the noisy pool work starting at 8a.m! Even sitting on the beach we couldn't escape it. And the party next door on our second stay!! I'm sure we should have been moved to the other wing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChuckN Great hotel to improve
The rooms are a little old but they are in reconditioning. It still remains the beautiful view with a great poolside and restaurants. To try more than once!
