Absolute Bliss

Feb 18th, 2020

This was a bucket list destination for us from Canada and the Le Meridien exceeded our expectations. The Otemanu view, glass floor overwater bungalow was absolutely exceptional. The view was breathtaking as was the room itself...total comfort and surprisingly large with a beautiful deck. The only note I would have is that you are required to buy and food plan to only eat at the resort. The food and presentation was fabulous though. We normally love to explore other places so that made it hard. Also I think it is just awful to have to pay for water transporation to and from the hotel to/from the airport as well as any time you want to to onto the main island. Left a negative taste for us. The welcome to the hotel is really special........really well done. The beach is gorgeous, the staff wonderful, the Turtle program is interactive and so interesting, the retail shop small but lovely, the concierge exceptional and the bars and restaraunts are beautiful. The front desk were always informed and great to deal with. Lots of lovely touches everywhere. It is pretty much perfection ! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Best to enjoy with wallet wide open

Feb 15th, 2020

Beautiful location, good food and very friendly staff. You’d better be ready to spend some money if you want to enjoy the experience, but once the wallet is pried open, it’s a wonderful place to relax, eat, snorkel and do other activities on the island. To give you an idea of what things cost, a cheeseburger is US$33. But it’s pretty nice. Turtle centre is great to visit. 10.30am is feeding time bc. Lounging on the beach is wonderful. Snorkelling equipment and fins are free. Lots of paid activities are around US$220 per person. Getting to the main island and back onto the Le Meridien is also expensive (like US$200+). Transfers to the neighbouring St Regis resort are affordable at US$40 return - nice to check out a slightly more upmarket resort and use their facilities. The staff are really friendly and they go out of their way to please you. They all speak good English but you’ll have an even better experience if you can speak a little French. Tips are shared amongst the staff. All five days of our trip had beautiful weather every day - even though the weather report said 100% chance of rain! That just meant a short shower for a welcome cool down every afternoon! Over the water bungalows are lovely. Standard bungalows don’t get a view of the iconic Bora Bora mountain. Nice if you’re keen to pay for the view. Best to enjoy the walk between the bungalows and the resort - no need to rush anywhere. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Wow

Feb 14th, 2020

I don’t know where to start. It’s a beautiful property and the staff is amazing. Over water bungalow 329 has an awesome view of the mountain. My suggestion is 329, 327 and 325 for the best views. I’ve read reviews on here about so-so food. Remember this is “French” Polynesia. Europeans have a different taste pallet than Americans. Not worse just different. That being said we never couldn’t find something we liked to eat. Keep an open mind. We had the all-inclusive package so if there was something we didn’t like we tried something else. Now here’s something that blew my mind. We’ve been on numerous cruises and all-inclusive’s in the Caribbean. Here you don’t have to get up at 0 dark thirty to get a beach or pool chair. You won’t find flip flops, books or towels saving chairs here. It was very refreshing. I read several things about bug spray. My wife wore it every night, I stopped about half way through and never had a bite and this is the rainy season. Speaking of rainy season. Don’t be afraid to go now. Our first day was great. Second and third mostly cloudy but, we still had some sun. About the sun, this is the most intense sun we’ve ever been in. It doesn’t take long to get burned. Usually we start out with 15 and bump up to 30 middle week. We had 30 on half way through the first afternoon. I also have read some reviews about maintenance issues. Our bungalow was great. There are some areas that need some touch ups but, unless you’re looking to complain about something you really don’t notice it. In perspective it is 19 degrees at home who cares about a little paint peeling. We went to Bloody Mary’s one day which I will review, we did the shark and ray swim and swam with the turtles at the resort. Recommend them all. Special thank to Crazy and Aquaman for the great shark and stingray tour. I have some suggestions for the Tahiti airport. If you’re interested contact me and I’ll give you my opinion. Now for the shout outs for exceptional service; Valerie Cape at check in. Thanks for always making sure we were having a great time. The bar crew; Noeline Moesta Mani a Donata Mailani Naoline Bruno You all were awesome, thank you! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Gorgeous

Feb 12th, 2020

Beautiful location! It’s on the atoll with a view of the mainland/mountains. Gorgeous setting but it does make it difficult to get to other things to do. There is only one way off by $35/person hotel boat. This is an interesting price because it’s over $100/person USD to get to and from the airport and that trip seemed shorter fwiw. The food is hit or miss. There are 2 restaurants and a 2 bars to choose from. My husband had one of his best steaks he’s ever had one night but then other nights we were disappointed so I guess it depends on the night and what you order. The pool is lovely, maybe a little small but it never seemed crowded. There is a great beach with cabanas that were nice to post up in for the mornings. They won’t deliver food or drinks to you here but you can take a short walk to the pool bar and bring it back. Our bungalow was nice, great view, nice large glass floor. I wish the deck was a little larger with more shade. If traveling with a family, they are pretty accommodating. They had a crib set up for us as we requested and they would bring us a high chair for each meal. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Best Experience

Feb 6th, 2020

Over water bungalows - gorgeous natural design. Large and spacious. Giant soaking tub. Glass bottom floor to enjoy the sealife below. Natural light from every wall. Hot HOT water in the shower. Beaches - multiple areas to enjoy the beach, so it feels less crowded than it may be. Plenty of open area to swim and snorkel. Fish are super friendly. Staff offers water equipment. Turtle sanctuary - was the best, swimming with the turtles and cleaning them. Food - breakfast buffet was my favorite.... tons of options from bacon to passion fruit. They dont hold back on the truffle oil in the truffle fries. Staff - Best part of Le Meridian. Amazing, family type of staff. Willing to help at all cost. And I absolutely love and revere the fact that the resort embraces and respects homosexuality. It was refreshing to see it celebrated so openly TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
