Le Meridien Tahiti is a modern and luxurious resort offering you the opportunity to awaken each of your senses. The resort offers an unique experience at the edge of a lagoon on one of the island's most beautiful white sandy beaches.

Review:   Recommended for: Couples, families

Pros: Dramatic entrance architecture. Wonderful sunsets. Impressive Polynesian live shows.

Cons: If you're just staying 1 night, before heading to the outer islands (as many people do), it's a fair drive from the core of Papeete.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   The resort seems unstaffed which causes the service to be slow. The resort is underwhelming for it's star rating. It redeems itself with excellent local snorkeling and the resort, however be warned the current is extremely strong in some areas. A good place to stay for a night or two to get used to the time change, however I would not stay here for a full trip.

Review:   A luxurious hotel with all the amenities you would expect. Every room (I think) has a view out to the ocean and pool. The beach is sandy with great snorkeling reefs close. Great kayaking in a safe lagoon.

Review:   This property has major issues. I have ambassador status with SPG, so I travel A LOT and have been blessed to stay in many nice hotels. I stayed at the LeMeridien Tahiti twice in Dec 2017 (on the way to Bora Bora and on the return) and refuse to ever return. The grounds are nice, but the staff are rude and not helpful, with exception of a nice female intern from France. I literally had to put out a fire that one of the employees started by a cigarette that he carelessly threw out on the ground by the pool. It was impossible to get anyone on the phone for room service or to ask for assistance. There were BED BUGS in our room and literally nothing was done about it, no compensation, just "oh, sorry". Do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere! We were miserable!
