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.

We arrived early in the morning for our 8 day stay,and were greeted with leas and private shuttle. We were able to check in to our room early. The hotel is one gigantic piece of paradise. Every staff member the whole time we stayed there greeted us as we walked by with a smile and a Ia Orana or Bon Jour from the gardeners to the housekeeping staff to the concierge himself.Our Concierge,Tieva was amazing,and so very accomadating.He answered all of our many questions on activities and services and took care of all the details with a sense of pride. We stayed in one of the panoramic view rooms on the top level and were in awe of how beautiful it was. The food at both restaraunts,especially the Le Lotus was absolutely deliscious. There were all sorts of activities available from the hotel,and we took advantage of many of them, enjoying every one. I could go on forever about how nice it was,but I'll sum it up in one word...AWESOME !

"Over-the-water bungalow -- amazing; service slow"
the over-the-water bungalow is a must experience and this hotel definitely promises and delivers. We were literally over the reef with Moorea right in front of us... we saw, eels, fish, rays, and sharks (definitely go to the store and grab some chub to really get feeding-frenzy). This was room 807... make sure to ask for Moorea-views.
The food at the hotel is good to very good and not completely over-priced. The service though is definitely on "island-time" and if you compound that with "french-time"...be prepared for everything to take about 15-20min longer than you want. The staff is nice but just SLOW. Otherwise GREAT HOTEL. Great option if you are transiting through Tahiti or want to stay for a day or two before going either to NZ or the other islands.

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!

My husband and I spent 4 nights in a garden bungalow with pool. Our bedroom and bathroom were spacious as was the deck with plunge pool. Plenty of privacy and the gardens were lovely. The hotel was very nice without being 'flashy' and well-maintained. The lagoon in front of the Hotel was great for snorkelling. We enjoyed the bar/restaurant - had meals here that were as nice as external restaurants. General pool is a generous size. Parking available free on site and the Wifi was also free.

We stayed at the Pearl resort for six nights. We stayed in a garden bungalow with our two kids and had a wonderful experience. It's a lovely resort and the staff was professional and courteous. One gets the sense that it's a well-managed place because of the great attitude and service provided by the staff. As would be expected given our long stay, we got a bit tired of the menu in the restaurant but found good alternatives close by. Overall, it's a great option if you're visiting Moorea.
