I stayed there in the past week. Probably one of the better hotels in Libreville.
I can recommend it.
Sure, it has some points that may need improvement: a/c was not fantastic/ hot water not available in my shower at 15:00, a-la-carte restaurant on Friday night had some bad points (poor lamb chops instead of the ordered entrecote) and some good points (smoked salmon, beautifully presented).
But: some other very, very good points too: fantastic buffet diner on my Thursday night, with all sorts of nice starters choices, for a reasonable price. The fish was great!
Breakfast buffet in the morning is not cheap, but has a good choice and an omelet and crepe counter.
May I especially say a praise to the staff; one of their (probably junior) young lady members of restaurant staff showed exceptional attention to detail and service (within 3 seconds she replaced a client's fork, when it fell on the ground), apart from having a very keen eye to any clients' restaurant needs. Well done, young lady!
The hotel has a nice pool and exercise room; both of whom I didn't use, but were used by other guests.
It is a shame the beach is not used, but it needs a clean up. Actually the area in front of the hotel is probably one of the cleaner area's around, so this is not a hotel problem, but a Libreville problem. (please Meridien: do try not to leave bin bags on the beach, across the little walls..)
As I said: I can recommend the hotel and hope to stay there again next year.
PS: Some locals seem to agree: Two lavish marriage party's were held on both of the nights I stayed, excellently organised. I had the pleasure to personally congratulate one of the newly wed couples.
PPS: On my stay there was a vendor with some beautiful woodwork in the hotel. I bought some (after light negotiations). Nice guy, nice stuff.
