We have been traveling around the Polynesia for the last two weeks.....Moorea is an absolutely beautiful island and the beach at the Sofitel is amazing.....however the hotel is managed terribly Service is AWFULL.....and the restaurant is a must avoid. You are guaranteed to walk out hungry. The food is an INSULT for a tourist that is willing to pay these... More

i and 12 close friends have been here since November.18 and have found a extremely beautiful property. Unfortunately the service was so bad we had no idea what was going on from activities to what a continental breakfast included. The restaurants from service to food was terrible to the point we ended up eating out every evening to having to... More

Beautiful accommodation, an overwater bungalow, nicely furnished. Steps straight down to the water, for swimming and snorkelling. Very friendly staff. High quality food. The hotel has many assets, but you need to think about a few things in advance. The hotel is not near anywhere, so you cannot just walk down to the shops or a restaurant. As it happens,... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for four nights. Staff was friendly enough. We stayed in a luxury garden bungalow and the view was very nice. The beach at the hotel was also very pretty. The service is extremely slow (I don't mean like island time, I mean like when you start questioning if people can see you or if you... More

My wife and I recently stayed 6 nights in a overwater bungalow (#110) at the Sofitel and it was fantastic. The grounds of this hotel are amazing. Perfectly clear blue water and beautiful tropical fish right off your deck. And the views of Tahiti were just unbelievable. I have attached a few shots that I took on our private deck.... More

Despite our very disappointing food experiences 2 years ago we were tempted to return because we loved the snorkeling off the over the water bungalows. We hoped that the food standard would have improved in the meantime and it had. Our return experience was a pleasure. We ate more dinners off site this visit where the restaurants come and collect...

We spent a wonderful 4 nights at the Sofitel Moorea for our honeymoon! The location was gorgeous and the staff was beyond helpful! We had an overwater bungalow and with resort provided free snorkel gear, spent many happy hours snorkeling right off our deck! We booked our honeymoon through Pacific For Less and could not have been happier with the... More

In our assessment this hotel is right behind the Hilton in therms of location, features, service quality. Wonderful large bungalows ! Great service ! High prices ! Now lets turn our attention to what sucks: Internet is essentially non-existent, just like anywhere else in Polynesia. The food is way overpriced: it's edible but that's the best one can say. Would... More

We had our wedding ceremony at our luxury over-water bungalow at the Sofitel last week and it was truly a dream location. The resort was like a fantasy island and we barely noticed people around us. It was so worth paying the extra money to get the end of pontoon over-water bungalow (Room 119 is ours but you can share... More
