We were booked in one of those overbooked after cruise day rooms. It was supposed to be ready for us at 9:00 AM. After waiting in a line of 12-15 people ahead of us in a non-airconditioned lobby, we were told our room would not be ready until 12:30. We were given a drink voucher. When we finally got into...

Decent hotel but really far from most anything. They allegedly have a sand beach (the reason we chose it) But, while there is a LITTLE sand, it is not really a beach. And there are lots of sea worms in the water. You can walk about a mile and a half to a real sand beach. There was no gym... More

Excellent location, beautiful scenery just like almost all of Tranquil Tahiti, but the service sets the Le Meridien, Papeete apart, specially the front desk service staff and their outstanding manager Caroline Devertain. We travel relatively good # of times per year and we found Caroline a lovely person, a professional manager, friendly and extremely helpful with high level of social... More

The pictures of the bungalows on line looked great. Very expensive, but friends have stayed in them in Bora Bora. I stayed in Chobe, Botswana in something similar to the Bora Bora ones . Chobe's were wonderful and worth all the money, and the ones in Bora Bora were too, but the Le Meridien La Papeete was not. The rooms... More

My husband and I arrived late on a thursday night and stayed 5 nights returning on an early flight on Tuesday, so we had 4 full days. I later found out that there was another return flight to LA that would leave at 11:30 at night which would have given us another full day, but too late to change. I... More

We arrived early in the morning for our Check-In. We were given the basic room closest to the end of the building with a partial view on the ocean and partial view on the premises (pool, restaurant, pool bar and main part of the lobby). We did get our room right away upon check-in. The person who checked us in... More

We booked this hotel several months before our cruise to the South Pacific through Booking.com. Our cruise ended in Papeete and our flight out was not until 2:00 am the next day. We checked in at 8:30 am, certainly not expecting our room to be available, however we wanted to drop-off our luggage rather than have it exposed in the... More

Simply put, this place is disgusting. It may well be the worst Starwood property that I have ever visited. Candidly, I am stunned by the positive reviews. The main restaurant smells faintly of raw sewage. The fake pool/lagoon at the center of the property has portions where the lining is deteriorating exposing the blue plastic. There is a green "lily... More
