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 !

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!

This is our second trip to Le Meridien, Bora Bora. Our first visit was on our Honeymoon back in 2007 when my wife and I absolutely fell in love with Bora Bora and all the luxury Le Meridien had to offer us. That said, we were back earlier this month to celebrate our 5th anniversary in Bora Bora and Le Meridien was our obvious choice.
The location of this resort is by far the best with pristine beaches and lagoons with stunning view of the Mt. Otemanu on the main island.
The staff were very courteous and friendly. To my surprise, some of the older staff even recognized me from our previous visit. We stayed in the premium OWB on both the visits and the rooms were amazing with the huge glass bottom floors and spectacular views from our balcony.
Without a doubt, I'd recommed this place for anyone who wants to get the best out of Bora Bora.
My wife and I have decided to make Bora Bora our tradition to visit every 5yrs on our for our anniversary and Le Meridien is the only place we are going to stay.

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 :-)

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 3 out of 5 by WorldTravelledFamily 3 Star Hotel Masked as a 5 Star
The Le Merdien Bora Bora was a disappointment for our family, especially in the dining experience, where they need a complete overhaul. I cannot comprehend how they are a 5 star hotel which offer:
1. No Salt and Pepper shakers...In fact they offer a shared plate of s&p at breakfast for everyone to pinch out of...
2. Most things in the buffet are cold and eggs cooked to order are cooked black..,not because they are burnt but because of the iron transfer from the pans.
3. They executive chef decided to leave in the middle of our dinner at 9 pm and we did not receive what we ordered. Instead of Crispy Chow Mein we received spaghetti with boiled vegetables.
4. Paper napkins for lunch and breakfast service.
5. For the same cost of dinner and soft drinks for 4 at this hotel, we at at the hotel next door in truly 5 star luxury with a drink, Apetizer, main course and desert....and we even got cold towels, Warm bread, S&P shakers and excellent service!!!
Beach staff is excellent, travel desk is good, bar menu is weak and overpriced. The game room keeps kids occupied when they are not in the water. Turtle center is free for guests, nice benefit, but beware the rooms..,they have termites. Even the luxury 2 bed room suite.
My recommendation - pick the St Regis or the Thalasso instead, you'll be happier.
