My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in an OWB with a lagoon view. Our bungalow was spacious with a good sized bedroom, lounge and bathroom. We loved the look-out into the lagoon from our deck. The restaurant/bar for lunch had a great menu and we enjoyed the food. We only had one mis-fire with the staff; we didn't hear back on a dinner and fishing trip we enquired about. Short walk to convenience store. Pick-ups provided by most restaurants for dinner. Were told this resort is on the side of the island that bears the brunt of the winds and we it was windy during our stay - probably the time of year.

If you cannot be in a good mood staying in Bora Bora then you just can't be happy.
Overall, a great experience. The staff were attentive and helpful, the rooms were exotic, the food was better than expected, and the location is absolutely stunning.
If you are walking into this deal looking for reasons why this shouldn't be a 5-star hotel then you will probably find a few. However, if you go into this excited about taking a (usually) much needed vacation to a lux remote island mostly reserved for celebrities then you will enjoy yourself thoroughly. This is a once in a life-time type vacation and life is short. Spend your time enjoying it rather than complaining like I see typically on this website.
Don't let the 'nay-sayers' fool you, or scare you out of going to Bora Bora and more specifically staying at this resort.

At first we were skeptical, but the place grew on us. If you want North American standards, go to the big hotels out of town. If you want an authentic Papeete experience stay here. Ask for an outside corner room for an amazing view of Moorea. Ignore the main street--you won't hear it after hours. Lobby is a breezeway; you have to turn on your room's air conditioner. Speaking French helps with the front desk staff but they try hard. Great location, if you are interested in the downtown. Easy walks to supermarkets. If you want golf and private beaches go to the big hotels. Lovely parks in three directions, shopping everywhere.If you want golf and private beaches, go to the big hotels instead. Acquaintances of ours who did so somewhat regretted not having our location here for at least part of the time on island.

Although the reviews minimize the overwater Bunglow experience. We loved Le Meridien and stayed in one of the overwater bungalows. We loved the pool, ocean and snorkeling experience. Overall the breakfast was expensive but not unexpected in Tahiti.

Great tahatian style hotel. Staff is friendly. Communication issues unless you speak French. Food is good. They do not promote food drinks etc. we did not know there was even a half price happy hour until our last day. Would still recommend!

More than I could've dreamed of! We had an amazing stay. We stayed in one of the garden bungalows with its own plunge pool. It was fantastic! Between our absolutely beautiful room and our private pool, we hardly left our bungalow. Grounds are beautiful, food was excellent. Didn't want to leave! We will be back!!

The hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel is in the perfect location with Albert's Tours right across the street and downtown Moorea only a 10 minute walk away. The bungalows were super nice and there was even a turn-down service to prep the room for night time.
