Exceptional 10.0
Nice spot to rest and unwind in Tahiti!
We changed our stay last minute as our previous accommodations were not what we had expected. This was one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip! We loved the grounds and facilities and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The Ora Beach Hotel made our last few days in Tahiti very enjoyable. Bathrooms are a little dated with doors that don’t quite shut but the room itself was very comfortable. The sand bottom pool is very nice and the beach is right there for folks looking to swim in the ocean. Beautiful view of Mo’orea in the background. Would definitely stay here again.

1st impression of Tahiti
This was the first stop on our vacation. Our flight got in at 11pm and we made it to the hotel just after midnight. As we headed for the lobby a bell hop came out to greet us. He escorted us to the check in desk and we were greeted and presented two hot wash cloths and two glasses of cold fruit juice. Check in was easy and were were brought to our room quickly. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. We had booked a garden view; however, our room faced the beach. We were on the 2nd floor and were not able to see the beach because of a large tree. It was still a beautiful view. We did not eat at the restaurant on the property. The beach was nice and the water was shallow. Since it was early February, the hotel was mostly deserted. The over water bungalows were under renovation, but the noise did not disturb us. The hotel concierge, Rachel, was amazing. She answered all our questions and provided excellent recommendations and directions. It was nice to have her help me with my French, too.She is very good at her job. Some aspects of the hotel were a little run down, but it's Tahiti, in the middle of the South Pacific. We had a great stay and the staff was very helpful and made our stay very nice. We will stay here again.

Paradise found.
Beautiful pool and sea area. Great happy hour cocktails. Pool staff very friendly. Room was immaculate as staff have high standards. Will stay here again.Fish pond being repairedwhich was a shame as it adds so much character to the complex.

8 hours in Tahiti
We booked a hotel last minute and only needed to stay for 8 hours. Our tour company was able to accommodate our drop off and pick up there without issues. The room was clean and ready for us when we arrived at 11:00 PM. The room and shower area had a strange odor to it, but it was manageable for the time that we were there. We woke up with a nice view of the ocean and pool. The breakfast was reasonably priced and portion size of eggs (huge bowl!) and fruit were perfect for sharing. We left in the morning for the dock to take a ferry to Mo’orea.

My friend and I stayed at Le Meridian for a week and had the BEST time! We are two single girls in our mid twenties so we were a bit worried about being the only ones not on a honeymoon and we heard Le Meridian was more a stop-off place to stay before the airport, but those concerns quickly faded away! We were SO entertained at the hotel and on Tahiti (went to Morrea one day but Tahiti the rest). The hotel provided live music (so beautiful) and a traditional show which was also amazing. There was even a pop-up club on Thursday night when we were planning to go out with a lot of young locals. :) The food at Le Meridian is so good, views are fantastic (best sunsets I've ever seen), staff is BEYOND amazing, massage was incredible, and the list goes on and on. Truly can't say enough about this place (and all of Tahiti). We didn't have a single complaint about our entire trip! Would go back and do it all over again the exact same and would encourage everyone to stay at Le Meridian!
