We stayed at the 4 Seasons Bora Bora (always 1 of the highest rated hotels in the world) after our stay at Sofitel Moorea, and my wife and I both preferred the Sofitel (especially for the value). The food is good, service is good. But what blew me away was the clarity of the water and the under-water life right... More

First of all, a big wrap for 'Pacific for Less' travel agents in helping pick this resort and in helping us choose the right style of accommodation. On their advice we chose a beach bungalow and saved the over water experience for Bora Bora. The hotel is very good, pretty reliable and superbly located. We too had concierge book the... More

I can tell you till I'm blue in the face how nice this resort was or how beautiful the property but the details are what you want. Check is isn't until 2:00pm so if you arrive early (like we did) I would advise you to grab their complimentary beach towels and change your clothes in the changing room in the... More

The Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort was stop #1 on our honeymoon to Moorea/St. Regis, and it was a perfect beginning to our two week trip. The hotel is perhaps in the best location on the island - very close (but not too close) to the ferry stop, and very close to the best "off-campus" restaurants on the island.... More

I will keep this short, but thorough and honest - my husband and I went to Bora Bora and Moorea for our honeymoon. We stayed at Sofitel properties in both locations. After a wonderful experience in Bora Bora, we were excited for our stay in Moorea. From the moment we set foot on the property until the time we left... More

My husband and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at the Sofitel Moorea in Tahiti. It was a fabulous experience and we would recommend it to anyone traveling without children. Although the total time to reach this destination is extensive (we departed from St. Louis, Missouri), it is well worth the time and layovers involved. Be aware: You have to... More

This resort was the "perfect" place for our family vacation. We stayed in an overwater bungalow at the very end of the pier, which offers more privacy than the interior placed overwater bungalows. This resort is the nicest on the island for certain. However, the service in the restaurants is very hit or miss...most often very slow. As a parent,... More

We spent 3 nights in a luxury overwater bungalow at the Sofitel before our 10-day Princess cruise. There are many things to rave about at this resort: the beautiful beach, the grounds that look like a botanical garden, including a water lily pond with koi fish, the warm and welcoming staff, the generous breakfast buffet (included with our reservation) and...
