Front desk staff was very nice, we had the same nice woman at check in and check out
I was surprised how run down the bungalows were. There was a slat missing in the bathroom so there was always an opening to the outside -early morning light came through it. There was also a board missing on the dock leading up to the bungalow. The entire dock was in some disrepair and was not scenic. As you drove in the cart from the lobby to the bungalow, the entire route was unimpressive. We had just come from another resort where we had also stayed in the bungalows. The others were much more first class. Cushions were collected from the furniture while guests were trying watch the sunset. Everything seemed to be more about the convenience of the hotel and employees rather than the enjoyment of the guests. The restaurant was really expensive for what you got and the drinks were marginal for the price paid. Internet access was not convenient. We spent long periods of time trying to get it to work and eventually an employee had to come out and remove a panel from the wall to reboot the server. Very inconvenient and frustrating. There was not a cork screw in the room. We had to wait a long time for an employee to arrive with one and then we felt obligated to find appropriate money to tip the worker. Each "luxurious" bungalow should include a $3 corkscrew for convenience of guests.
Best hotel/resort i've ever stayed at - can't wait to return! will recommend to everyone!
This hotel books rooms that are not ready to be slept in and the bait and switches you to a lower grade room. Bugs, mold, dirt and stained beds. Stay away
It's clearly an old facility i.e. The key card holder fell off the wall repeatedly and the bathroom shower and tub fixtures didn't work properly. Thankfully we were only there for a few hours before a transfer to our cruise ship. On the plus side the location is beautiful and the pool is nice though it also shows some wear and tear i.e. The liner is coming through the sand in multiple places.
Our experience at Le Meridien was just fine as we had been visiting family in USA non-stop for almost 5 weeks and so were looking forward to blobbing out for 3 days. There was a strike on by staff out at the entrance way but that was no bother to us. If we had to criticize we would say that since our previous trip in 2011, we thought some things were looking a bit tired and run down - just a number of minor things - considering the huge tarif. Otherwise everything was just fine - we wanted to be left alone and we were. What we especially love is the huge sandy lagoon style pool.
Nice hotel, Beach is okay. Good option for a layover in Tahiti but far from the airport
Food,service,swimming,drinking fruit juices. Staff always helpful for everything . Can not be better!
We stayed in an over the water bungalo...it was a living aquarium below us! The beautiful reefs, incredible fish, sharks, and even an octopus, combined with the islands inherit beauty our view and stay was incredible. The staff was friendly and helpful. We are gold members of their hotel group, so were allowed to check-in early and leave late. However, the hotel will allow anyone to do this for a fee. Restaurant was delicious.
If you truly want and need a relaxing holiday. This is the place. If your taking a holiday and want to run hard, then it is not the place to be. I talked to a few people that went on some of the snorkeling excursions and they all said that nothing could match the reefs at the Le Meridean
Nice, spacious room. Excellent bedding including great pillows and crispy white linen. Room cleaned every day spotless. Room sevice - speedy, ice delivered within 2 minutes. Pool and pool area with beautiul beach sand. View - magnificent. Just paradise. Hotel Highly recommended.
Everything is excellent in this hotel if you are not hungry because the breakfast and restaurant is unpayably expensive. You have to buy foods and drinks in a shop or to go to a pizzeria not far from the hotel.
The room was great except for the crowing rooster next door.
Even though we had a wonderful honeymoon overall, we were not pleased at all with our particular hotel choice. We have travelled all over the world, including Belize, Grand Cayman, Bahamas, Riviera Maya, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Virgin Islands, Cabo. We have stayed at some of the nicest hotels, many all inclusives, etc. We have never complained about a hotel before...until this one. We were placed in a section of the hotel that was in the process of being renovated. I understand that hotels need to be renovated from time to time, and am ok with that. But to literally place us in the middle of the renovation, to the point that rooms on either side of us, above us, and below us, were all being emptied out, was irresponsible and unacceptable. There were mattresses in the hallway, lights taken down, doors to all the rooms open, music blaring and workers inside dismantling the entire rooms, removing furniture, etc. It was the most irresponsible thing I've ever experienced. My husband took several pictures, and we are going to contact our attorney to see about some type of reimbursement. We were comped a nice dinner in the hotel, which was very good, and allowed a late check out. That is all. It was a nice gesture, but not enough. We had workers enter our room on 3 separate occasions, without knocking, and that is only the number that we were present and know about. These were hotel contruction workers who assumed our room was vacant, and came right in, only to see us sitting on the bed watching tv. They apologized, but it happened THREE times. This hotel has not heard the last of us. The only saving grace was that we were not in our hotel room all that much, as we were experiencing the beauty of the islands!
Amazing bungalow (807...last one on the pier) and amazing location. Bottom line: We highly recommend this resort. We experienced no issues with any part of the stay and can now say with confidence that the negative reviews which we'd read before leaving are far off the mark. Ignore them, this resort is first class. Le Meridian is about a 20 minute taxi ride ($40 USD) from the airport and well-kept, quiet, and sufficiently secluded. The pool is fantastic for those days when the current is too strong for snorkeling; which you should do as much as possible. Prices in Tahiti aren't friendly to the USD, however there is a grocery store about a 2 minute walk from the resort entrance. There are also a few restaurants even closer that have decent fare for far less than the on-site offerings. Take the plunge and get a bungalow--it's worth every penny.
Mostly stayed around the hotel property and pool. Would have liked to have had a map showing where various locations were. Also would have liked to been able to locate some close-by eating locations other than just the expensive hotel restaurants. This Hotel is located about 20 miles South of FAAA Airport where you land and taxi farw was around 3000 Francs.
Great place to check in before and after the Paul Gauguin Cruise. Very nice hotel. Great pool, beautiful gardens and the Pacific Ocean is right there to snorkel in. Great Experience and vacation.
"private" coral reef... try to beat that... :)
Clean, comfortable rooms with nice view. Fun island tour.
We decided to break up the long flight back from a cruise around NZ and Aus by an overnight in Tahiti. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We splurged a bit and were well rewarded. Our daughter and granddaughter loved it. The pool is beyond description. It had a white sand bottom and walk-in on two sides. Snorkling and kayaking were great and included in the day charge. We may never be back that way again but if we are, we'll certainly stay there again.
