The bungalow, the staff, the property, and the food were so amazing. Everyday was filled will the most epic views. We found ourselves often just stopping in awe of the beauty. The layout of the property is perfect. The staff made us feel so welcome, greeting us by name and assisting with anything we needed quickly. The bungalows are awesome, truly awesome. The glass floor and view are astonishing. And so many amenities that make the stay so comfortable. Everything has been thought of in advance and available in the bungalow. The activities available allow for every comfort level to enjoy the beautiful water. Scuba diving and snorkeling are breathtaking. The cuisine is delectable featuring a variety of choices. Every excursion booked through the concierge was exceptional. We highly recommend this property if you are celebrating something special or simply enjoy beauty. It is magical and a must-see.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gretino So Disappointing
My husband and I took a cruise around Tahiti for our Honeymoon. We definitely wanted to stay in an over water bungalow while we were there. We went off of our cruise ship for one night and stayed at Le Meridien Bora Bora. To say we couldn't wait to get back on the ship is an understatement. To begin with, the coordination of getting from the boat pier to the hotel was excruciating. No one from the hotel told us that we would need to take, AND PAY, for a water taxi. (With the amount we were spending for 1 night, I feel that this should have been included). Once we made it to the hotel, check in was a breeze and the people were friendly. We were driven to our room in a golf cart. We were also told that since my husband was in a walking cast, a golf cart would be available to us whenever we needed one. We definitely enjoyed the view and the ambiance of the room. However, our tub had no hot water and one of our sinks didn’t drain. My husband had arranged a romantic “gourmet” dinner for us on the beach. When we asked about what time we should be there they said anytime between 7pm and 9pm. We arrived around 8. There was one other couple on the beach with us and a ukulele singer. The entertainment was wonderful, but he left before we got our main course. Had we been told that the entertainment would be there only until a certain time we would have made sure to come earlier. The food was anything but gourmet. A steak with french fries and a tuna steak with nothing on it. We had a better more gourmet meal at the pool for lunch. Once we were finished, we asked about getting a golf cart to take us back to our room. It was very dark at this point and with the walking boot, I was a little nervous that my husband would trip. We were told that the driver was gone for the night. In addition, there was a lot of work/landscaping being done on the premises while we were there. (not a big deal at all) I guess though that the workers aren’t given restrooms to relieve themselves since we saw them using the trees on multiple occasions. We had couple massages planned for the second day and ended up canceling to go back to the boat early. What we experienced was not at all what we were expecting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hjb15 Nothing as we expected..
Very localized and average service standards where English being a huge barrier. Have been well traveled in regions like Europe, US, Asia and New Zealand and have never encountered such staff. poor room quality on day one (given an handicapped room), room service very expensive but is understandable if quality and service standards are high too. Lack of global food options and maintain problems to vegetarians.
No point demonstrating local culture if local people (as staff) are not trained enough to meet global hospitality standards.
massage too was nothing out of the world and nor was its ambiance, it was as normal as any other around the world. For the standards of such an exotic location, i was disappointed.
Having said this, the property is beautiful, very suitable location and is definitely a good option for those who are seafood lovers and know french.

Stayed in Bungalow over water with glass floor where you could see the fish swiming around especially at night time. Really nice
Captive to the hotel, nowhere to go, after 3-4 days was ready to leave property to explore other surrounding islands.
Very expensive for hotel, food, and anything you want to do beside snorkeling you pay a premium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tropical4Ever Good location with fantastic views
A great resort to stay at while in Bora Bora. we stayed for one week in an overwater bungalow that we thoroughly enjoyed. Every evening we had a local Tahitian wine while sitting on our terrace. We had a very lazy stay, went kayaking, did a jet ski tour and went swimming. The location of this resort is in a sandy bay, so if you expect to snorkel from your bungalow or beach and see fish you will be disappointed. You can however, go off-site to snorkel. You can see stingrays from the resort though. Nothing negative to say, we had a positive experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CW527 High End Value
Location of this property is probably one of the best locations on the island. The only thing missing was an evening sunset cruise.
I think for the money you spend to come to Bora Bora, Le Meridien maintains a lot of high end amenities, in a high end location, and yet offers above standard rooms and bungalows for much less than the St. Regis or Four Seasons. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Food was terrific. Service does suffer a bit during evening rush, but overall not bad.
