Rated 4 out of 5 by Honeymooners Very Beautiful
The hotel is very beautiful and of course the surrounding area is amazing. We stayed in one of the over water bungalows. It was fantastic. The pool and beach were wonderful. The only thing lacking was the food service. The resturants were not all open and room service was very expensive and not very tasty. After spending the day on the beach often we would come back to the room for relaxation and wanted to watch TV, not much of a selection and the movies were VERY expensive for older B rated movies. But overall a great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustReturnedFromBoraBora Excellent Scenic Views!
The highlights are (i) the hotel has incredible views of Mt. Otemanu from the main beach; (ii) the resort staff is friendly and attentive; (iii) the shark and ray feeding was unique, and the 4x4 tour of the island was really fun. The only negative is the food. Unfortunately Bora Bora is not a destination for food lovers -- all of our meals both at the hotel or elsewhere were overpriced and of lesser quality than you would find in the United States.

My wife and I stayed at Le Meridien for our Honeymoon. We booked 10 nights at a Premium Overwater Bungalow.
On the third day, we were told there was an issue with the plumbing in our unit and they would have to move us to a unit on the beach.
They offered no compensation for the hassle of switching rooms and packing/unpacking 10 days worth of luggage. We wasted half a day moving out, half a day moving back three days later. We also had to cancel day trips we had planned for both days.
The room they placed us in was the same rate as our original room, but not even close to the same experience. They put us in a three room unit on the beach. We had no need for the extra two rooms as it was just the two of us on our honeymoon. Despite our requests to be placed in another premium overwater bungalow, they insisted on placing us in the three room unit.
We really enjoyed the time we stayed in the overwater Bungalow, but we were very disappointed with how they handled the plumbing issue, passing the cost and inconvenience on to us.

At all a nice Hotel.
The overwaterbungalow was wonderful, but the housekeeping comes every day to early (8.30am) and it was not the cleanest room i ever saw (under the bed etc.) It has 5*, so i have requirements...
The food was great, but like all in Bora Bora expensive.
The only worse thing was the service in the restaurants at the evening. Some waiters was not so friendly. At the beachbar and the beachboys were friendly and have always a smile. So sometimes was the staff at the evening...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobby105 Buffet only choice on two evenings - expensive
I enjoyed my stay, but felt we should have had a choice of eating off menu instead of buffet only on two nights we stayed. It made it very expensive. French Polynesia is expensive enough, but not having choices was not good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JodynBill Wonderful Resort, Fantastic People
Bora Bora has a well-deserved reputation as a beautiful, tranquil paradise. We found that the Le Meridien captures the spirit completely. We especially enjoyed the welcome and overview of the resort we got from Ani---what a dear! Our Pool Beach Bungalow was outstanding. We enjoyed the plunge pool and the inner lagoon. Also, we found that Vairea at the gift store and Poema at Reception were incredibly warm and helpful. All in all, the great facilities and great staff made our trip
Unforgettable! Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LuckyCouple Le Meridien Bora Bora Bungalow Better Than Expected
The resort looks exactly like the pictures are presented on the website. It was a beautiful property and to me, the overwater bungalows looked better than any other bungalows on the island based on pictures from others and personal visits to other neighboring properties where I had meal reservations. The breakfast was the best with a variety that meets all taste buds. All other meals, including bar, were below standard; no true seafood variety and even the American dishes were below standard (i.e., cheeseburger). It would have been nice to have a complimentary shuttle that goes to and from Main Island OR the ability to go and come during set times if there is a charge but instead, the property dictated when you go and come (i.e., 11-2; 6-9pm). Because food and relaxation are the most activities most guests participate in, the food should be excellent, especially for the cost. Public bathrooms on the property (men and women) had urine smell each day but bungalow was extremely clean daily (MUCH BETTER THAN EXPECTED).

Rated 4 out of 5 by hawaiigirl11 My experience in Bora Bora
The OTWB was lovely and very comfortable
and nicely decorated. The morning buffet was
very good and great staff. Was disappointed that the boat shuttle to the other island was an
additional cost. Others we spoke with that were
staying at local hotels, said their shuttle to and from the island was complimentary. Enjoyed the turtle santurary. Staff was terrific and we
really enjoyed the dinner @ the Italian resturant.

The hotel is brilliant however I would suggest to improve the pool bar and include some service on the beach. Additionally some of the staff was rude specially local people. The rest was great. An amazing hotel and place to go. The best hotel I have been as it is located in a unique place.

Le Meridien lived up to all I hoped for. This trip was for our 35 th anniversary, and we celebrated in style with an absolutely breathtaking surprise private dinner in the wedding chapel. this venture too a great deal of planning and I cannot thank Cecile Jorite enough for her help .
The staff here are exceptional for service excellence. Several stood out. Sylvia and her brother mike for their attention to us during our dinner. Sylvia took her headdress off and gave it to me for the dinner. she made me feel as if I had family there. Benjamin at the activities desk was also extremely attentive. He followed through to see if all our expectations were met.
We found the bungalow amazing. We viewed fish AND rays through the floor on most nights, and the amenities very comfortable.
Our only reservation is food . While the breakfast buffet was excellent, as was room service and the Tratorria, the dinner buffet at Le Timpanie was abominable. We learned from the chef that he himself had never eaten the buffet. He has been in place only two months and I 'm sure has much to address, but we suggest he try the food. The trattoria was excellent... freshly made pasta and New Zealand rack of lamb were standouts. The bread and pastries were reminiscent of those we ate in France.
Overall our stay was delightful, and we hope to return some day !

Rated 5 out of 5 by davidg301 hotel worth for the long travel from los angeles
The hotel have several amenities for free and complimentary like paddle boards, kayaks,
small boat with an experience boater. The jet ski is not that expensive to rent. Our experience with trip around several islands for a whole day including a picnic is outstanding and an experience we can talk again and again. A real six star experience. COmpliments to woman captain and son and nephew a very entertaining tour of the islands. The staffs are all friendly with any language French, English,Spanish and Italian.

We just came home from an amazing experience at Le Meridien Bora Bora. The rooms, hotel and grounds look like the classic screensaver postcards. The staff was wonderful and we had an experience of a lifetime. We did have an opportunity to see some of the other hotels with OWB and feel so happy with our choice to stay at Le Meridien. We plan to coming back to stay again soon!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BadgerEmily Absolutely gorgeous resort!
My husband and I just spent 4 nights at Le Meridien Bora Bora. It was amazing! The overwater bungalow was beautiful and very clean and comfortable. The private lagoon was like swimming in an aquarium. The activities desk was very helpful. The Bora Bora Turtle Center, located at the resort, was awesome! My only complaint was that we didn't know the schedule for when the restaurant was a buffet and when it was a la carte. The buffets were excellent; the a la carte meals were good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FelHa Great location - expectations met
Lovely situated with well equipped over-water bungalows. Perfect for a honeymoon or relaxing stay away. Staff are helpful (but not always efficient) and hotel food/beverage options expensive and choice limited (as one would expect in such a remote and luxurious location though).

Rated 4 out of 5 by angtoo good but i was expecting great
room was nice but the air conditioning didnt work too well. the room seemed humid and not as cold as i would've liked it to be.
the food was just ok. again, for the price, not worth it.. but i was warned that the food in bora bora is not great anyway. also, not that much variety for the lunch menu.
Overall, a beautiful place, staff very friendly and eager to help. Love that there is a lagoon with lots of fish that you can snorkel in. And the turtle sanctuary was a fun and educational experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RYV140614 Our dream came true
Really fantastic, outstanding facilities and great hotel staff work.
The only improvable point: the food quality of the luch/dinner restaurants (breakfast is simply perfect!). The dishes we tried in the 2 restaurants (the Italian and the other inside) were very well presented, but the flavour result was improvable and globaly not deserving such a high price.
All in all, we have made an excellent decision selecting this hotel for our Honey Moon. Our general evaluation is EXCELLENT!
