When we booked Le Meridian, specially the water bungalow we were super excited. The price was steep ... but we said what the heck one night and lets live it up.
Service was bad, they were under staffed. You expect suite like service for the price. No butler service.
AC wasn't working so we moved bungalows.
Safe didn't work in the new room nor did the coffee machine.
We went for dinner the hotel restaurant and there was no place for 2 people.
Have to mention that the only highlight was the server at the coffee shop who was all smiles and amazing service. but before he came the woman would not even come to our table.
the front office every time we called would not even be apologetic for their delay or response.
after the complain to the manager he waived the internet and one meal.
Not a single person came to apologize or make it better for the rest of our stay.
The room had sand under the bed, had not even been cleaned properly

Rated 3 out of 5 by mpol Good for 1 night -- no more
We stayed here for one night as a family on our way to Bora Bora. This was a very convenient and easy ride from the airport -- 15 minutes at most. They allowed us to check in at 7am as an SPG Platinum member, which was much appreciated after a long flight from LAX.
The rooms are relatively new and nice. Had an ocean front-view room. A/C did not work well in either room. Beware. Nice balcony. Nice bathroom. Be clear, the over-water bungalows are not worth it -- they are just little huts over some rocks in the lagoon. These are not Bora Bora bungalows.
There is a nice lagoon to swim in -- kind of a man made beach/pool. It was great for kids. They loved it.
The food was terrible and we went out to eat after our first meal there. Breakfast is included for Platinums and that was fine.
I did get the sense not many people worked here. I would go all day and see like 2 or 3 employees -- on the entire grounds of the resort. Runs very lean.I went down to ask to borrow a converter to plug our American chargers into -- and the front desk person said they do not have any. I found that hard to believe and after pushing a bit he found "one in the office."
Again, this is a "fine" hotel for one or two nights but you would be horribly bored if you visited for more than that.

Loved the garden at this hotel.
A brave attempt to make a natural looking swimmng pool failed miserably as the linng was often apparent and the sand bottom makes it difficult to keep the hotel free from debris.
Big let down..very tired bathroom, rust and mould in several places. Dark mouldy patch above the room AC unit.
Battling against the elements..(the hotel is very open plan) is no easy task.This hotel neads a little tllc.

We had just a couple days in Tahiti on a layover. The staff at Le Meridien ensured we had a great time.
We stayed in the overwater bungalows — awesome for gazing at fish over your morning coffee or happy hour cocktail.
The staff was exceptional, making everything work for us, when and how it best suited our needs. Thanks for a great coupled days.

The resort and surrounding area is just incredible. We returned to celebrate our 20th anniversary and had a wonderful experience.
The staff is excellent and Ana in the reception area went above and beyond to help us with our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaf001 Everything we expected of a "Tahitian" experience!
Our first impression upon entering the Le Meridien was "wow, this is exactly how we envisioned Tahiti.” The Le Meridien can be described as having a “vintage” appearance, but with all the modern amenities! It is a lovely structure with gorgeous surrounding grounds incorporating beautiful tropical plants … and with the prettiest birds flying around and about.
All the hotel staff members were pleasant and responsive to our requests and questions; however, there are a few who deserve special mention. They are Maire and Tino at the hotel desk, as well as Liliane at the poolside restaurant and bar.
Because of the travel "package" we purchased we arrived in Papeete quite early in the morning after many hours of travel. After being transported to the Le Meridien we were extremely pleased when we were advised by hotel staff that our room, an over water bungalow, was immediately available to us.
At the end of our stay, we were scheduled to be transported to the airport at 7:50PM. We asked for a late check-out and again, were so surprised when staff told us we could stay in our room until 7:00PM that evening at no additional cost.
It’s also important to comment that we booked this hotel notwithstanding some negative reviews we read on a travel "site." We are so pleased we did not let those negative comments prevent us from staying at Le Meridien. Doing so would truly have been our loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Parsons2010 Excellent Stay in Tahiti
WOW! From check-in to check-out- this hotel exceeded our expectations. After a long day of traveling to get here- Emilie greeted us with a smile and upgraded our room, free of charge and thanked us for being SPG members- she was so kind and Professional and being in the Customer service industry ourselves, we really appreciated her. Although we are spg members, this was our first stay at a(n) Le Meridien and the staff and accomodations set the bar high.
