Having extensive experience with both for many years I can say that with 
some decent preparation work you can generate documents with LibreOffice 
that rivals LaTeX output and layout. I have created such document 
templates with OpenOffice a couple years back. I can search my hard 
drives and see if I still have those around, if that might help.

I remember the OpenOffice organization had brilliant documentation and 
guides in generating such document templates, but as the LibreOffice 
project gain popularity the websites hosting the original OpenOffice 
documents and guides disappeared one by one.

On a side note:
   OpenOffice (and I guess now LibreOffice) also have impressive
   mathematical formulae support. I wouldn’t instantly dismiss it.
   We used those in a prior company I worked for.

 From what I’ve seen [2-3 years ago] there is none that really does a 
good job.
