"SPG should remove their affiliation with Le Meridian Tahiti"
Unfortunately due to fireman strikes our flight into Tahiti from Bora Bora was delayed by 4.5 hours. Meaning we arrived at Le Meridian at 6pm for our transit stay (one night). Upon arrival we were told that our room wouldn't be ready for another 2 hours (come back at 8pm). Globally, check-in is 2pm (usually sooner) After having some food and drinks at the hotel bar we returned to reception at 8:15pm and completed check in. In our room our air conditioning wasn't working (our room was 30 degrees). I called reception and a technician arrived a few minutes later, the unit was broken and we would have to be moved. About 30 minutes later we got a call, went to reception and collected our room key. We were told we were "upgraded" due to my Platinum SPG status. Upon arriving in our air conditioned room, we settled in and I called reception (at 11pm) to confirm our transfer time to the airport. We were asked when our scheduled flight was and were told "not to worry until 7:30am tomorrow". We set our alarms for 7am and went to sleep. Shortly after, we were awakened every 20-30 minutes (till departure) by loud banging. Knowing the fact that there were people laying on the floor in the lobby due to massive mess ups by management on room allocation we stayed put and didn't call anything in. At 5:50am we got a call in our room, picking up the phone we had the voice of reception asking us "where are you'!" Explaining that the transfer was waiting for us downstairs. We said our flight was scheduled for 12:15, and reception said that it had been changed to 9am (another review for Air Tahiti is on its way elsewhere). We explained we would be down right away (we never unpacked our bags) they said we were too late and that the transfer was already leaving. 5 minutes after this call at checkout we had no apology from reception or management for anything. When I spoke to the manager at reception, he had a "I don't care, get in your taxi and go" attitude. Ultimately we had to pay for a taxi even though we had pre-paid transfers. Luckily the taxi driver accepted Australian currency which we happened to have and Le Meridian didn't offer to reimburse. Management and staff didn't have the slightest care about our situation. St Regis Bora Bora had up to date flight information which they relayed to us. We will never stay at a Le Meridian ever again
"A great resort"
Stayed May 2017 for 6 nights. Traveled with my wife and adult daughter, sharing a room. Have visited Tahiti previously. Le Meridien was great. Good modern clean room, great views, fantastic facilities. Excellent beds and pillows. Great sleeps every night. Huge bathroom. Location good. Proximity to basic shops, pharmacy, supermarket and bakery right next door - excellent. Not too far from the airport which is one of the main reasons people stay here transiting to other islands. Pity really, This place has everything without the need to go anywhere else. The resort has been well refurbished and is modern and very comfortable. Access to the sea with lawn to the small beach area under wonderful palms. Big lawn areas, spacious and well provided with pool couches. The pool is really good. The bars and restaurant are fantastic. A big shout out to Benjamin at the beach restaurant - brilliant fine food and reasonably priced, wonderful ambience, experienced caring staff. Loved the service everywhere. Room service is prompt and good. We did not use the breakfast facilities due to the extreme pricing (we were not allowed have it included in our package for some unknown reason), which we just fail to understand. Lunch at the pool bar is good, also pricey, but it's a resort. While there I thought about pricing. It seem clear that the place is highly profitable - and the quality of the place reflects this (albeit not five star - but pretty darned good). Bar staff really good everywhere and produced great cocktails every time. Good range of other drinks - couldn't have been happier. Front desk staff lovely and very helpful arranging tours. We really enjoyed the entertainment provided throughout the property, but the Friday night seafood banquet and show was absolutely fantastic. We were extremely well catered for by booking early with a front row position. Thank you again Clemence for your wonderful handling of our bookings. Thoroughly recommend this property! Though despite many attempts, never did find the artists gallery open. Really enjoyed our stay.
"Was fine 3.5 stars"
So everything was ok in general. I actual led loved the girl I checked in with at the front desk she was sweet and made formal crowns. the lobby area was cute we enjoyed the pond. The room was fine nothing bad but nothing amazing. The grounds are very small. I never had a bad smell like other reviewers talked about. The pool was nice- beach like. We kayaked and the reef around the hotel was great to look at. We ate at the restaurants which were fine/good. It is a hotel you stay over before going to another island. There should be more background music. I asked them to turn it on at the bar. Breakfast was bla and very expensive for the lack of variety. There is a super market 5 mins away you can walk to and grab some beers/snacks etc. U could not get a cappuccino at this hotel anytime before 11 am which was the most irritating thing I found.Overall good.
"Good for a one night stay"
The property is a good budget option for a one night stay while in transit to another island. We stayed one night here to begin our trip and purchased a day pass for our last day so we could kill some time before our midnight flight. Free wifi in the lobby for those of you on a day pass. Wifi at the pool is only for guest staying on property. It's about a 15 minute ride from the airport.
"Chaotic Check In"
We stayed at Le Meridian after a cruise. We needed a place while we waited for our air travel. The hotel itself was very nice, nicely appointed room, great amenities, good restaurants and a great bar. The problem was with check in. We requested early check in and of course didn't get it. We had to wait 5 hours for our room, and the check in process was a nightmare. It seemed like complete confusion. Otherwise a great stay.
