We were greeted immediately upon arrival with a drink and seated to fill out our reservations form. We arrived around noon and were told our room would not be ready until later in the afternoon. We had the option of using the changing room for 15 minutes, but opted not to. We were given a code to the wifi that... More

From check in to check out, the staff really was interested in ensuring the visit was special. While I didn't dine at the gourmet restaurant, I thought the food and service in the daytime restaurants was very good. And, I thought the overall pricing of the resort was very reasonable. The beach was great and the excursions from the resort... More

We are a married couple in our late 20's and recently got back from this beautiful resort after a week-long stay and I don't think we could have chosen a better place for us in Moorea. I booked this hotel after much research (and confusion!) into the various resort options available and after staying on this gorgeous island, came to... More

Stop #1 (of 5) of our French Polynesian honeymoon. Stayed 4 nights. Overwater Bungalow This was a great 1st stop and overall, a very good hotel (Intercon. standards). ROOMS were very nice, beautiful deck with a sitting area to watch the sunset. Water around bungalow is shallow enough to walk on ground but you need water shoes. It's very rocky... More

This hotel was really beautiful and the service was great. We worked with Custom Tahiti to book our Tahiti trip and they sent us great gifts to the room!

We went this Resort for our honeymoon, and prior to make our bookings we got the Ambassador card for USD 200, as Intercontinental stated on every of its Ads that the Ambassador card would guarantee an upgrade at every stay (check their website, it is still there).

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comment. Like for most programs and promotions there are exceptions to the rule and reservations via travel agencies for French Polynesian properties are one of them. The upgrade is subject to availability only due to the specificity of the destination. We do our best to provide the upgrade as we know how important that... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments.

First night we arrived there were two roaches in the closet. We called house keeping and a lady came with a spray and killed the two. The spray left a horrid smell but it got the job done.

The last time I saw roaches was over 15 years ago in an urban apartment in west Philadelphia. The first night, we found 3 roaches in our bungalow closet. Upon calling the housekeeping, a maid came and sprayed the closet and removed the dead roaches. She then left the spray bottle with us. Our second night, while we did not... More

Dear Guest, Whilst I understand your concern, being from a western country myself and thus familiar with cockroaches, it is important to note that this is an entirely different situation in French Polynesia. What you refer to as roaches are called 'pandanus scarabes" naturally found in coconut trees and pandanus trees. As you have seen for yourself, Moorea is a... More
