Our 2-day over the water bungalow stay after 10-days of chartering from Sunsail was great! We were glad that we booked it with breakfast included because the breakfast dining experience was delicious. Imagine fresh omlets with all the wonderful French breads and croissants! We expecially liked REDA, the wonderful young man (from Germany) at the Front Desk. He was an... More

We stayed recently in Papeete for a week with my family. We used the hotel as our base for exploring all Tahiti has to offer in terms of sightseeing and relaxtion. We were not disappointed. While the hotel has some details to work on (faulty elevator, small maintenace issues, and lack of really good amenities) we still really enjoyed our... More

We stayed in an overwater bungalow for 1 week at Le Meridien. They picked us up right from the airport and transferred us by boat to the resort (30 min tops). It was really nice and convenient which we liked so first impressions were great. The resort is quite large which isn't really something we expected being that it’s on... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your very nice review but we think you might confuse our resort with Le Méridien Bora Bora. We have two Le Méridien hotels in French Polynesia, and the only one with transparent bottom floor in its bungalows and shuttle by boat is Le Méridien Bora Bora. Best Regards More

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning and the end of our Windstar cruise. We arranged this independently of the cruise as Gold Starwood guests and received an upgrade to the top floor and free Wi-Fi. The room was spacious and clean and provided a wonderful view of the sand bottom pool and ocean. The main restaurant served an... More

Our Windstar Cruise docked early in the morning, and we headed straight to Le Meridien for an overnight stay before heading home. I should have put "early check-in" into the reservation, but it wasn't long before the Front Desk found us a room. Clean, comfortable, lovely view. We ran into friends from the cruise who were staying in one of... More

This hotel is a gem hiding in the middle of a bustling town, as most hotels here are. The rooms are spacious for European standards(French Polynesia). A majority of the regular rooms face the ocean and there is always the room over the coral reef option. I looked at both and they are all lovely. Large sand bottom pool and... More

We make a couple of trips to the Pacific Islands each year and have never been disappointed. This was our first trip to Tahiti and we enjoyed every moment of it. The hotel while largish did not feel crowded and the rooms (all of which seem to have a lagoon view, even the ones described as 'garden view' which we... More

Felt safe booking a Starwood Hotel until we experienced Le Mediocre Papeete. Yes it's a stopover hotel for the islands but its our first experience of Tahiti and first impressions count. Our immediate thought was "is this a Starwood ?" Our habit, rate a hotel by its breakfasts, it's rooms, cleanliness and atmosphere and the staff. So. ... The Food... More

Don't believe these really poor reviews! If you're staying in Tahiti, spring for an overwater bungalow, their rates are great compared to BB or Moorea. Despite not having direct access to the water you could easily see fish like it was your personal aquarium. Reef was beautiful and usually calm. The room was clean, luxurious and amazing to open the... More
