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.

I enjoyed my stay at Le Perle de Tahaa, and was impressed with its luxurious well-appointed bungalows with modern furnishings. My room featured a stone sink and shower, mini kitchenette for preparing meals, and ultra-comfortable bedding. Ordinarily I would give this caliber of room 5-stars, but the temperature in the room was unbearably hot, despite the fan - I was sweating bullets within minutes. The owner, Roberto, is a friendly but to-the-point gentleman who takes pride in his hotel, but he would do well to install air conditioning in these bungalows - even on a pay-per-use coin operated system as used in some hotels in Australia. Powerful fans are installed in the bungalows, but they are of little use as they circulate the hot air - I only maintained comfort through repeated cold showers. With this slight alteration to the property, I believe it could compete with the best of hotels. The beach area by the lagoon was well-landscaped and relaxing, and the garden area features a wide variety of places to lounge and relax. I would recommend this hotel include transfers to and from the nearby pier (2 km, 20 minute walk), as the 1000 XPF price tag for the 3-minute drive is a bit steep - such inclusions go a long way in demonstrating excellent customer service. Roberto also offers reasonably priced island tours (5000 XPF, 5 hours) to vanilla plantations, pearl farm, and fruit orchards - I highly enjoyed his knowledgable guidance and would recommend the tour to visitors.
