Ok, maybe one of the two best on this island, but Moorea is the best for coral sight seeing and sight seeing in general. Sofitel has the best beach of all the resorts on Moorea. We did stay in a bungalow on the beach. We had our own very private sandy beach, it was wonderful. Bungalow was very spacious and... More

The location is pretty awesome and it’s very point of strength is its private and wide beach. Unfortunately, differently to others Polynesian resort, not all the water activities equipments were free of charge (e.g. the kayak) and are limited in numbers (e.g. only three kayak available at that time). On the other hand other equipments, like snorkeling ones, were available... More

We stayed at Sofitel Moorea for 7 nights in a lovely hut about 5 meters from the ocean. The air conditioned beach hut was large and comfortable with a king bed and large modern bathroom. The resort had many water sport activities and served an excellent included breakfast. It was a great location to explore the rest of Moorea and... More

My wife and I recently spent four nights at the Sofitel Moorea for our honeymoon and were very pleased with our stay. We booked our entire trip with Pacific for Less, after reading about their stellar travel service here on TripAdvisor. I was hesitant to use a travel agent, but Claudia and her Pacific for Less staff really made everything... More

We spent 5 days in the Sofitel Moorea la Ora Resort and loved every bit of it. Beautiful bungalloos, great coral lagoon to snorkle, canoe, swimm or paddle boat, the food was good adn the staff was very helpful and firendly.

We stayed with our three boys 13,11&8 for four nights in the Villa Ravello and considered, after our many travels, that this was the most beautiful & luxurious accommodation we have stayed in. Every detail was perfect, service impeccable and it was hugely private. It is expensive+ but if you can do it, it's an unforgettable treat and true rest.

We have just had the most amazing week at the Sofitel. We had an overwater bungalow and it was the best. Do it if you can. The service everywhere at the resort was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and a big thank you to the guys at the restaurant. You made our evening there special. If you can take... More

The Sofitel is an elegant hotel in Moorea. We had a fantastic overwater bungalow with a wonderful coral lagoon in our backyard. We snorkeled several times a day right from the dock of our room. What we loved about this place was how quiet and peaceful it was everywhere we went. The staff was friendly and the girl at the... More

The snorkeling here is absolutely awesome - a huge lagoon teeming with live coral and aquatic life. On-site dive company took us on an awesome snorkel tour outside the reef. Food was decent, but nothing special. Service was a bit "lumpy" depending on who you interacted with - I often felt like someone had their hand in my pocket the... More
