Overpriced, poor selection and seafood did not look fresh. Very disappointing for Le Meridien. Don't go!

Wide selection of food, from sashimi tuna and salmon to grilled steak and eggs. You'd have to get there early as they always run out of food and take a long time to re-stock it.

Most hotel breakfast buffets in the South Pacific leave something to be desired. This buffet, however, is world class. There is a wide variety of offerings. From cheeses to fruits to pastries, everything is fresh and delicious. The hot items are also good although one...More
