The hotel himself is fabulous, surrounding by coconut trees,with hibiscus,bougaivillier,the swimming pool is amazing ...you're in even because from the airport you arrived you smell the ylang ylang,the vanilla directly from the air ,is a paradise. Nightly following by the ukulele, colored beautiful tahitienne women reminded Gaugin paintings. Only little advice Tahiti is very expensive without no taxes in revenue... More

Firstly, let me say that the service was excellent. Every staff person was accommodating and friendly. Since most flights to Tahiti arrive in the evening, this hotel is mostly for people to stay overnight until their flight to Bora Bora the next morning. We did not realize this. We booked here to stay for the whole week of Christmas. It... More

I read a lot of negative reviews prior to our stay and I have to say I was positively surprised by the property and our experience. I would like to rate the property 4 1/2 but since TA does not allow this I gave them an extra half star to compensate for all the negativity. Tahiti resorts probably suffer from... More

Based on our experience with Le Meridien Etoile in Paris, I did not hesitate to book this hotel. However, all properties are apparently not comparable. We booked this hotel for two nights before an Oceania cruise. The first room we were taken to was in an old section, far away from the main hotel building. It was dirty, hot, and... More

We arrived in Tahiti and wanted a family friendly and comfortable place to stay for a few days before and after our boat cruise. Le Meridien was great. Away from the hustle and bustle of Papeete with lovely amenities and great restaurants. It was very relaxed. Great gardens and staff. I would highly recommend this hotel for any stays in... More

It is down hill from the start with the front desk. The front desk people are not friendly or make any effort to insure you are pleased. They offered a shuttle to town; followed by it is $17.00 per person and the last shuttle was at 2pm for a ride back to the hotel. It was 12 noon and what... More

We flew in from Bora Bora and needed a place to relax before our midnight flight to LAX in late May. The Meridien fit the bill! We enjoyed a very modern, clean room and later had a well prepared dinner in the main outdoor dining area. The entire experience was just what we needed before a long flight, so I'd... More

After a long flight from Los Angeles, it is quite pleasant to arrive at the newly remodeled Le Meridien. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. Drapes open to a lovely, watery landscape. A shade in the bathroom opens so one can soak and enjoy the view. Water bungalows are lovely. Wood walls and adornment give them a feeling of warmth.... More

This hotel was good for spending one night. The general appearance is a bit old, as the rooms, but ok. The pool and the beach are nice. The restaurant at the beach was too expensive, but the food was delicious for lunch and dinner. The rooms didn´t have wifi, only in the lobby free wifi.

The rooms were nice but nothing amazing - certainly not the mental image I had of Tahiti. The staff were not warm or helpful and there was barely a smile. I would suggest that management send their head staff to Le Meridien in Bora Bora for a couple of days to see how guests should be treated. This part of... More
