Lovely relaxing break first room needed updating so they upgraded us to a lovely room.

Very good 8.0
Would go back but would be better planned.
The arrival at the Le Meridien was not what was expected - I had emailed previously regarding my 1am arrival time to advise them (I was sick at the time chest infection and flu) the greeting was that I was put in to a transit room until 6am and they would come and get me when my room would be ready. I slept on a couch in the transit room until 7am no one came and got me. There was no offering of water, food or wifi. Lucky i had eaten on the plane and lucky i had water from the plane - Wifi i had to ask for - to let family members know that i had arrived safely (as i was travelling by my self). Food was amazing - pool staff fabulous. The overwater bungalows were been renovated - guests were notified only two days prior to arrival (this is not good enough for those travelling from Europe). Amazing area amazing food but would stay only two nights either side of going to other islands and would not come down with the flu before i go again!

We are having a wonderful time. Front desk ,concierge , pool people and restaurant servers all have been great. I only wish you had more channels on Tv in English. Also it responds very slow.

Great hotel
Very friendly staff and they actually let us check in early, unlike any other hotel in Tahiti. We got our room 2 1/2hrs early, which I was very nice. The room was large, with a comfy bed and beautiful view from the balcony. The minibar in the room is free too!! The pool is a sand bottom but is coming up in areas and not the cleanest looking. The area is beautiful though. The beach is not ‘Tahiti’ at all though. The tide is constantly low and the water just looks gross and dirty. You can rent a kayak for free, go out about 100yards and the water is 10x better. I don’t recommend the over water bungalows at this place since I wouldn’t swim near them and there’s no ladder into the water from them either. We had a late flight but no problems. We were allowed to store our luggage in a locked room. They also had showers and a room for us to use during that time. Great stay!

Great place to be
I thought it was a very pleasant hotel.. the pool and beach are lovely.. the beach bar and restaurant are nice.. The service was really good, I never came across anyone who wasn’t happy, helpful and pleasant. The water sports people coco tours where next to none really nice people and very helpful.. Yes it’s an island hotel so no not perfect but that’s it’s charm. It’s a lovely place to be and if you want perfect, I would stay in big city and in a hotel with no atmosphere..but this hotel is a very nice place to be...

Good 6.0
Great ocean bungalow, great service, food was meh.
We stayed in bungalow 801 and it was great. Privacy and since it's on the end, it has slightly less traffic. The platform for entering the ocean to snorkel is not private, it's community. private steps on each balcony would be much nicer. The problem with this platform is missing steps back up. You literally get pushed by the current all the way back to shore. So there really is no private ocean access. That said it's beautiful in 5-8 feet if water and we saw lots of exciting fish. Food at the entire resort is sub par. The Breakfast buffet was the best meal of the day, but at $45/pp it's pretty steep. Fresh pancakes and eggs were nice. But nothing to brag about. Could be much better with an eggs Benedict or fruit over French toast. Not a show stopper, just wasn’t great. Drinks are also pricy around $20 each and just never tasted right. But, the ocean view makes up for it all. The mini bar was included with water bottles, beer, and soda, and was complimentary restocked each day. This was a nice feature. On entrance on day zero of our stay we found a chilled bottle of champagne, which was a very nice touch. Shower was great. Instant hot water, nice pressure, and two shower heads for different options. Hermès toiletries were nice. Towels for fresh, big, fluffy. King bed/pillows were very comfy. WiFi hit 5mbps, great for browsing, but will not video calls. comp access for four devices. At $700/nt we would return to this resort for the Bungalows only.
