Moorea is an amazing island and Sofitel made our experience there even better. It rained every single day of our stay, but somehow he had the best time ever! The OW bangalows certainly made a difference, it is a MUST do if you are already going all the way to Tahiti. The people from the Acquatic activities in the hotel... More

My wife and two children waited 2 1/2 hours for our food to come at the bar restaurant. The waitress finally came by and asked "how was your dinner"...we said "we still have not received it". No apologies, no water glass refilled, nothing. Our kids were exhausted after a long day and were starving. We ultimately just had to leave... More

We just returned from a stay at the Sofitel and would highly recommend it. The high point is the beauty of the area and water. We stayed in an over the water bungalow which I would definitely recommend. We had the superior over water bungalow (which is the "smaller" less expensive over the water one and I would recommend it... More

Ia Ora hotel is overall great.The best feature of this hotel is most probably the location and the buffets. The plethora of food is quite remarkable. Then is the only time you can eat your weight in desserts, sashimi, salads, cold cuts... The hotel is found right by the beach, which is wonderful. Everyone can peacefully enjoy the cristal blue...

I traveled to Mo'orea for my best friend's destination wedding, so although I traveled solo, it was a friends trip. Upon arrival to the Sofitel, I was given pineapple juice (delicious!) and a cool towel, which was heavenly after traveling. I was informed that my room would be ready at 2, which it was. The doom was far more than... More

It is one of the great place for get away from your usual life. Beautiful view, amazing room, friendly staff. Wi-fi connection was okay. The one thing we didn't like was the variety of restaurant menu and prices. Their price of food and drinks were very expensive.

We booked a garden view bungalow but were upgraded to one closer to the beach. We stayed here four nights en route to Bora Bora. Our travel agent, Samantha Worthen, from Tahiti Travel Planners, set up our transportation, room, meal plan (huge breakfast buffet) and complimentary snorkel tour of the lagoon. Wonderful experience. Clean, spacious room (a little dark) with... More

With the general costs involved in travelling to French Polynesia it can be a very worrisome experience, finding the right place and hoping you made the right choice.
