Cons: The food. Unfortunately, it was really salty. The room service menu was way better than the restaurants.
The location was beautiful and the staff were all incredibly friendly and accommodating.

awesome vacationPosted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: overwater accommodations
Cons: more a la carte options
Location: do anything and you'll have fun.
overwater bungalows were stunning. so many places to snorkel (make sure to bring roof shoes). the whole island of bora bora is surreal. every day is like a postcard. resort only had a few restaurants and on buffet night there were no a la carte options, but it is easy to get boat transfer to other resort restaurants. all in all a great vacation.

Everything I imagined and morePosted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Seclusion and my bungalow
Cons: The food was not that good.
Le Meridian has fantastic views, the water was warm and inviting. I mostly enjoyed the solitude of my over-the-water bungalow with the amazing glass bottom floor? Got some really nice photos to share with friends and family.

awesome facilities and staff!!Posted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: everything except for breakfast because only buffet or breakfast room service. So after 5 days of eating the same style breakfast is a bit boring
Cons: keep doing what you guys are doing and providing and maybe offer pasta or different varity food for room service since there is a $15 delivery charge!
Location: it's on an island so don't expect convience as a city but that why you go to bora bora
It's such a beautiful resort with excellent management and staff. Bora Bora is an amazing place that absolutely worth it. Le Meridien is also amazing that I highly recommend it. I suggest to use the hotel taxi for round trip which they take care of all the lauggages and timing for you. It's expensive in Bora Bora, no other way around it so might as well enjoy every moment than wasting time try to save some money! It is definitely worth every penny. My wife and I were truly happy about the hotel. The hotel has all the snorkling gear and toys plus they have free kayak, pedal boat and sail boat with a captin. The sail boat is a must try!!!! Capatin Gerlam (not sure about the spelling) is super nice or I should say perfect! We've been to Hawaii few times, staying at different 5 star hotels, and Le Meridien definitely is a 5 star hotel. I have to say thank you to the management for doing such a fabulous job to make our proposing anniversary vacation so unforgettable :)

The View is amazing but what view isnt there.Posted Jul 1, 2014
Our stay was very nice until we went to check out and realized almost 700 dollars on our bill was not anything we had authorized. There was donations to turtles, charges for airport transfer (which was Supposively included ) among other things. As soon as we pointed it out without hassle it was removed. We felt like they were trying to slide stuff in our bill and think we wouldn't noticed considering we spent a lot of money there. We will go back to Bora Bora but we will not stay at the Le Merdien.

Honeymoon in ParadisePosted Jun 29, 2014
Hubby and I stayed here 5 nights for our honeymoon. When we arrived to Bora Bora, we were warmly greeted by the hotel with leis. At check-in we asked for a Bungalow with a mountain view and were eventually accommodated (the front desk woman was a bit rude about it stating that everyone comes there for a honeymoon and that we'd have to pay more to upgrade bungalows, however another woman listened to our request and found us a bungalow with a partial mountain view and more privacy to make our honeymoon more special - much appreciated). The room was comfortable, again the view and not facing other bungalows making a difference. The balcony was perfect for watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee or the sunset with a glass of wine. We opted to have the breakfast buffet each morning which we enjoyed. We had the dinner buffet one night which was nothing memorable and would've preferred to eat somewhere on Vaitape. We ordered room service for one dinner and ate on the balcony which was nice. We ate at Bloody Mary's one night and had a great meal and experience - you should definitely check it out. Bora Bora is very mellow. Often times we felt like the only ones on the island. A few activities are available. BYOB!!! We brought 5 bottles of bubbly and a variety of snacks to munch on. You'll appreciate it if you're on a bit of a budget or not wanting to splurge on meals. We easily spent $1000 on food alone here and we only had two meals/day. Great trip overall.

The world's most amazing viewPosted Jun 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
The view from the resort is breathtakingly amazing - we must have taken 500 pictures! The resort itself is great and the bungalow was beautiful, modern and fully-featured! The food at the restaurants was top-notch. At Le Meridien it helps to speak a little french (or at least try!) We would definitely return and the boat ride from the airport to the resort makes a gorgeous grand entrance in the evening! It felt like we were James Bond!

Amazing LocationPosted Jun 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Perfectly situated hotel. Nice modern design in interior of bungalows. From exterior the bungalows appear smaller than Four Seasons, St. Regis and Intercontinental Thalaso, but we found them perfectly spacious. Not all the bungalows have chaise lounge chairs some only have chairs. Not many fish under bungalow but beware of sea urchins. The beach is beautiful and clean, free stand up paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel gear, floaties and more are available! Transfers to and from airport and between motu and Bora Bora are expensive. Dining is also very expensive, service is definitely not 5 star. Make arrangements ahead of time to eat at St. Regis as reservations are hard to get. Also take snacks and can visit grocery store on Bora Bora. Empty mini fridge is available in bungalow. We would skip the overpriced polynesian buffet but would catch the free Polynesian show afterward. Overall an amazing trip and would retyrn to Le Meridien.

Perfect place for the perfect getawayPosted Jun 10, 2014
Location: Le Meridan is Bora Bora everything is there
I can't say enough about Le Meridan we thought it was perfect, quiet, plenty of space for swimming at the different beaches, enough lounges spread out around the resort to soak up the sun, swimming pools, water activities at no extra cost & the bungalows over the water to die for. King bed & super comfortable, beautiful views & glass floor section to watch the water go by. The brochures are exactly what you see.

HotelPosted May 26, 2014
Food is terrible, hotel itself is very nice with a great view. Overpriced for what it is.
