On our last night of our honeymoon stayed in Tahiti to catch an early flight at 4A. We splurged for a premium over the water bungalow. For over $600 a night we were shocked to find roaches and a pile of rat poop in our tub in our premiere over the water bungalow. When we told the front desk at... More

We loved it here. The staff was wonderful. The Mrs wasn't feeling well when we arrived which was at 7 in the morning. Our new best friend Tino at the front took one look at the Mrs. And immediately put us in our room. We loved the pool. Looked like it would be ocean water but it was a fresh... More

We chose to stay here after spending the previous 4 nights at Le Meridian Bora Bora, in order to catch an early flight home. The grounds were extremely well manicured and we enjoyed soaking up the sun until the sun came down, then dined at the restaurant which was impressive. A great overnight stay and highly recommended!

I suppose for the price, this was not a bad hotel. If you can spare $50+ Usd more a night, stay at the intercontinental instead. Thank me after. The rooms and resort at Le Meridien seemed run down. Desperately need a face lift IMO. Besides it looking old and somewhat sketchy, the good things were: 1. Near a supermarket so... More

Beautiful resort with incredible views. We stayed in one of the overwater bungalows and it was worth every cent. The view from the bungalows are amazing. And the fish life swimming just below are just as beautiful. We have traveled pretty extensively and this is still one of my favorite vacations.

This views from this hotel is amazing! Long flight to get there but if you like relaxing in paradise in your own private bungalow, this is a MUST visit! The people of Tahiti are very friendly and the hotel grounds are amazing! We were fortunate to get upgraded to a bungalow over the water which was private, peaceful and breath... More

I couldn't help but notice that the hotel and managers are quick to respond to all postings and reviews of their resort. The sad news is that they are only quick to respond there. Service was slow and almost non existent on the property, amenities are substandard and the room we had was in disrepair. Our shower drain didn't function... More

We stayed here on our way to and from other islands. We had a mixed experience. First the good. Friendly and helpful staff, nice views, interesting pool with sand on the bottom, fresh flowers in the rooms, book swap library, starch in the rooms for ironing. Next the opportunities. Generally, the property needs freshening: a new coat of paint, attention... More
