The Sofitel in Moorea has an unbelievably beautiful beach. I mean the coral is spectacular and the beach is soft and clean... The bungalows are gorgeous. We stayed here in the beach front bungalows before heading to Bora Bora to stay in the over water ones there at the Le Meridien and we liked the fact that we split it... More

Stayed here for 4 days last week in an overwater bungalow after a similar time in Bora Bora. The bungalow locations are superb swim and snorkel from your stairs with plenty of large and small fish and coral. In some ways it was better than Bora bora in this respect. Having read other reviews I agree however that for a... More

Arrived at reception an hour and a half ago and was abruptly ushered to the lobby receiving area for arriving guests where I was told I would be given a refreshment. All the other guests were offered drinks, cool towels, checkin information and assistance, checked in and wandered off. As my room is most likely not ready yet I have... More

After four beautiful, perfect days at the Four Seasons Bora Bora (I could not recommend the resort more) we flew to Moorea for five nights at the Sofitel. I researched all the hotels on the island to find the most luxurious one. It is our honeymoon after all. It was between the Hilton and Sofitel. We pulled the trigger on... More

We traveled to French Polynesia for our 25th anniversary in late April. We had thought a lot about how to mark to occasion and have always wanted to go to the "South Sea Islands". We travel a lot and were familiar with many of the main resort brands and after deciding to spend most of our 11 days on Moorea... More

We only went for lunch and a swim whilst driving around the island -and both were superb. Lovely fresh lunch of tapas and tuna sashimi Tahitian style served on the bar terrace by friendly staff and followed by a swim in the beautiful sea and a beer at the beach bar- bliss! If we return to Moorea we will stay... More

We recently spent 4 nites in a Luxury Garden Bungalow. We arrived at the resort around 9:30am and our room was not ready. Ari at Reception, cheerfully gave us a voucher for breakfast and then showed us rooms that we could change into bathing suits so we could spend time at the pool until our room was ready. Our bungalow... More

An amazing place to stay. Our bungalow over the water was spectacular. Snorkeling at our front door, day and night. The food was great. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Great place to stay. Defiantly a place to go to escape the hectic pace of working life.

Great beach, and staffs are lovely. Though not all of them speak English, but they never fail to try to go all the way to make our stay enjoyable. There is rental of snorkeling tools avail but do remember to put on proper footwear as we were told that there might be stonefish in the vicinity. Otherwise, u can also... More
