The island dream of Tahiti is quite quickly shattered. For beach holidays I can not recommend it. Beaches are quite poor. Meridien is average, quite old.
as resort we were surprised to learn that there are no kids activities whatsoever.
As Platinum member I had booked a suite upgrade. they gave us a normal room and upon complaining, staff was pretty lost. they asked me to hook up my ipad to their computer so I could send them the confirmation email...
anyway, we got upgraded to the junior suite. it is basically a normal room with a large outdoor seating area. they had put the cot into the first room and we asked the porter to bring it to the new room (I had given him a good tip too). as it turns out, tasks are divided at this hotel and cleaning staff move cots. it took us two calls and a personal visit to reception to get that cot moved.
beach is poor, can have quite strong current (you are not allowed to swim).
we stayed again after staying at meridien bora bora - see separate review - and got upgraded to an overwater bungalow. not suitable for small children. this time it took them two hours to get us the cot. they first waited one hour doing nothing and then it started raining.
those bungalows do not have direct water access as the grounds are completely covered in reef.
breakfast is alright. dinner at le carre is very good.
