My husband and I knew we wanted to go to the French Polynesia for our honeymoon, but we couldn't decide what island and what hotel to stay at. I found Tahiti Travel Planners and worked with Chloe Cipollone and we ended up deciding to spend all 10 days on the island of Moorea rather than spending half our time in... More

We did not stay in the hotel but we had a visit and we stayed in the beach for a while. Amazining sea colors, the beach is very well maintained. The hotel is extremely clean and the staff very kind. Very nice pool

I cannot say enough about this resort. Very nice rooms. We had the last farthest out bungalow that was very private with a great view of Tahiti. The staff is superb and they remembered our preferences and names. We did a 4 hour tour of the island on a boat moored at the dock of the hotel -- it is... More

This hotel is amazing. We stayed in an over water bungalow and could not have been happier. The room was beautiful, private deck to snorkel off of and views to die for. We rented a little car for the week and drove around the island stopping at a bunch of little spots to eat or explore. The service at the... More

We stayed at the Sofitel in Moorea for our honeymoon two weeks ago. What a disappointing experience for the money we spent and the "luxury" and high ratings claimed by this resort. Note that we had stayed the week prior at the Intercontinental in Bora Bora which was top notch, really raised the bar, and by which we compared experiences.... More

This was one of those bucket list experiences that lived up to my dream of what it would be like and more, but save your pennies for a trip to Tahiti as it is a very expensive destination all round. We went late March and the temperature was beautiful, both air and in the ocean for snorkelling. It was just... More

Thank you Sofitel for making our honeymoon wonderful in every way possible! This hotel is truly a 5 star hotel! I recently just stayed for 6 nights, and I wish I had stayed for 6 more. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, and some of the nicest people I have ever met. The grounds of the hotel are... More

Lovely property in beautiful surroundings. We stayed in an overwater superior bungalow which really lived up to our expectations. The weather was hot and humid but the air-conditioning in our bungalow was excellent. Being able to walk down the ladder off the deck and swim with the fish was fantastic. I did get chastised for taking a slice of bread... More
