There's much to like at Le Meridien Tahiti including it's pretty, quiet setting, outstanding food, spacious rooms, friendly staff. I'd never been in a pool with a sandy bottom; it felt more like a place to play than to swim and the spin class (in the pool!) with loud music didn't invite lingering.
The location won't work for those who want to walk to Papeete, but I'm no fan of the city, so that was fine with me. It's a good base for exploring the island and don't miss the Musee de Tahiti et ses Iles which is an easy walk.
Is this a 4 star resort? By American standards, probably not. There's a "tired" feel and some things I expected like comfortable chairs on the balcony, a screen door to let the lovely air inside etc. were missing.
