This resort was my husband and I's first stop on our eight day adventure in the French Polynesia. I absolutely loved the refreshing cool cloth and pureed mango shot after traveling all day. While we checked in our luggage was whisked away to our room. Our room was very modern with breathtaking views of the koi ponds, pool and lagoon.... More

I'd give 2 stars, if it weren't for the property itself. Overwater bungalows were great!! loved the picturesque views, the beautiful rooms and the property itself- Paradise, indeed! Unfortunately, with the overwater bungalow, there is no deck associated with it (so you can't jump off the patio). The pool staff was great, but that was pretty much it ( i... More

We enjoyed a perfect, fun-filled and relaxing holiday at Le Meridien Tahiti recently. We think it is unnecessary to moan about very minor maintenance issues which occur at all beach resorts, but naturally acknowledge the need for facilities to be refreshed from time to time. Our experience of service and comfort were both first rate: The Staff were exceptional in... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights before and 1 night after a Windstar cruise. The first 2 nights were in an over-water bungalow. We were enchanted by the experience. The small deck faced the sunset and a lovely view of Moorea. We could see fish swimming beneath us. The bed was comfy and the room was well-stocked with bottled... More

I'm surprised at all the bad reviews. I too arrived off the Windspirit. Tino checked us in and was very pleasant and helpful. My room was nicer than expected. Comfortable, clean and AC worked fine. The pool was nice, plenty of comfy chairs, towels and drink service. Had a very good dinner at side restaurant by the ocean. Did not... More

I have rarely written negative reviews. But the level of service at this hotel for the expense is appalling. We arrived off the Windstar and had already been at several hotels prior to. So we can say this has nothing to do with our level of expectation for Tahiti. Tino checked us in, rude, argumentative. There was a group of... More

We stayed at this hotel after our cruise ended in Papeete. I tried to get a bungalow prior to our cruise but was told they were unavailable.
