Rated 5 out of 5 by Casteve A real jewel
Bora Bora was on my bucket list. I was very pleased with this facility. The pics are accurate as to the beauty of the bungalows and private beach area. The staff was very friendly, used your name, got a welcome gift as a gold member and the concierge team was excellent. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and I have read reveiws about food and found the food was quite good, pricey (but similar to other bora bora pricing). The snorkeling was good, but limited area to view coral/fish. The beach hut had free towels, snorkel gear, paddleboards, free canoe rides and more. The rooms were very clean and accurate to what the online pictures showed. Beautiful. I would happily go back to this resort and recommend it.

My wife and stayed here the second half of our trip for 3 days. I hauled our luggage across the dock and 5 flights of stairs without assistance from the staff. THe property overall was layed out terrible and the staff completely ignored me our entire stay. I am a fun person, not sure what the deal was. A couple was sitting next to us at the pool and their food was delivered to them and when I asked they said that they dont do that and I was mistaken. I was told that i had to go to the restaurant and pick it up myself.
Compared to the better resorts next door this place is 1 star at best. I'm pretty easy to please but when we are paying over $1000 USD a night I expect a little service.
To be completely honest if this was the first resort we would have stayed at on Bora we wouldnt have known a difference. Since this was our second resort on our trip it was night and day. We almost called our travel agent on the second day to move back to our previous resort.
If you are reading this want some advice on where to stay make a comment on this post and I will get back to you, if they even post this review :/

We spent 6 days here at the end of a cruise from Sydney. The staff was awesome! My 5 year old celebrated his bday today and they prepared him a cake and ice cream which he loved!!! The lagunarium was next island over and The St. Regis another starwood property is just next door which they let us use the amenities!!! We love being in the Starwood Family :-)

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!

We were very satisfied with our stay in this hotel. The housekeeping and concierge staff were responsive and very pleasant to deal with. Patrick, our boat driver, kept some supplies for us in town while we ate dinner. The great guys who handle the watersports (Nicki especially). They were knowledgeable, helpful and played music for us, all with a smile. Sarah in Tahitian Pearl helped me choose a beautiful necklace and very pleasant. Maeve in the bar was also sweet. It's too bad more guests are not informed of the two ladies who sell handcrafted things on the second floor on Wednesday nights! I bought some lovely gifts to bring back but no other guests were there. It's nice to support local craftspeople.

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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NickSPG Bad Experience
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.

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!

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 !
