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.

This was an amazing location and views, great checkin and out, hunky luggage handlers, a beautiful infinity pool facing West for amazing sunsets. We had a fantastic over water hut, just beautiful. The only hint wrong was the mediocre to poor food and the apathetic waiters. Is was so bad we decided early on to pay the taxi fare to eat elsewhere. It was seriously a bad place to eat. Also, it was extremely hot and humid and the only place with AC was the rooms and one tiny shop. All else, including the dining room was open air. So be aware and prepared to sweat! The hotel had a great show of Tahitian dancers.

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.

Bora Bora is as beautiful as the postcards depict. The island, the water, the hotel were all worth the trip!
The Le Meridien is a great place to stay. The staff, Jean-Marie was wonderful at Breakfast and lunch!
Sam and Chantal were most helpful concierges.
A MOST enjoyable stay!
Thank You All!

I stayed in an Ocean View room, which is cheaper than the overwater bungalows but offer a way better view of the lagoon ! Most of the staff was very friendly and smiling but one person (I don't know her name) who works at the restaurants (breakfast, lunch and dinner) clearly needs to find a new job appropriate for her lack of smile.

This was one of the most incredible vacation stays my wife and I have experienced after many years of world travel. We spent 2 nights in an overwater bungalow at the Sofitel Moorea after finishing a 10 day cruise of French Polynesia on the Oceania Marina (another wonderful experience). What made the overall vacation experience so special were the beauty of French Polynesia (the clearest torquise blue waters anywhere, abundantly visible sea life, beautiful islands/atolls), warm climate as break from a Midwest winter, and the friendliest people we have encountered anywhere). The overwater bungalow was located on a gorgeous lagoon with waves breaking on the reef guarding the lagoon. We were able to view many fish/other sealife by snorkeling off our deck or by viewing through window in the floor of our unit. The unit was large, clean, and attractive (a lodge-like feeling with high "Polynesian" ceilings, large bathroom, thatched roof). The furnishing/finishes/decor were very nice but a bit worn and outdated as compared to what I expect in a five-star accommodation. (We viewed an overwater bungalow where friends were staying at the Intercontinental in Papeete and their unit was finished in a true five-star star luxury style, but the water was not as clear as at the Sofitel so snorkeling/fish viewing was not as good). The main problem with our unit was that the air conditioning was not sufficient to cool our unit-we were hot during our entire stay (temperature in 90s F).
