This is a great hotel. The beach is right there, and unlike Bora Bora, you can walk in and see fish and coral. The beach is sandy, and well kept. The hotel is lovely, the food is good, the rooms are spacious and well appointed. The over water bungalows are what you would expect, however if you don't want to... More

We stayed here in a luxury over the water. Snorkel / swim right off private deck and stairs. Wear a shirt and sunscreen snorkelling as sun is intense. Lots of fish with plenty of coral areas to attract fish. Great views of lagoon and Tahiti in distance. Window in floor to watch fish below. Comfortable bed with bug netting in... More

We were here on our honeymoon, left with very mixed feelings, some of the staff were very rude and un helpful with things we would ask, wifi was terrible, cocktails were below average and we booked our honeymoon as a package yet we had to be out of our room 4 hours before our ferry left leaving us with no...

With all of the beautiful places I have been blessed to see, I think the Moorea Sofitel snorkeling has to be near perfect. It's like a Disneyland Ride!!! Clear beautiful water abundant with all kinds of "eye candy"!! I cant wait to return and I will. With all things there is the good, bad and the I will not tolerate.... More

We stayed in September 2015 as part of a trip to French Polynesia. A lovely hotel on a great beach close to the airport (which was good for us after all the travelling from the UK and not a problem as there are so few flights). The luxury beach bungalows are highly recommended if you did not want to go... More

This Resort is a great place, no doubt about it. However, the rooms need to have some renovation for being a 5 star resort. The Garden Bungalow has a small lake right in front of the rooms which is not a smart idea unless you offer something against moskito which the hotel does not. You don't have many choices for...

What an amazingly beautiful property. We had an amazing time! What beautiful waters and accommodations! One issue is that there is no transportation provided from the ferry. I'm not clear on why given how close the hotel is to it. Also, although the food was excellent, it was WAY too expensive. There needs to be more reasonable food options for... More

Overall, we loved our stay at the Sofitel Moorea. We were in an overwater bungalow at the end of the pontoon which offered us an absolutely spectacular view of the lagoon and Tahiti in the distance. While staying at the Sofitel, we enjoyed lavish meals, ridiculously abundant snorkeling, and a general feeling of peace and wellbeing. There's a lot to... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this resort, the staff were friendly and the resort itself was clean. English is our main language but we made the effort to say at least hello and thank you in French or Tahitian but most staff were fluent English so it was not an issue at all.
