Just amazing. This Sofitel is situated in the most incredibly blue lagoon, surrounded by millions of fish of every colour and size. We stayed in overwater bungalows with steps down to lagoon. Snorkeled whenever we liked. Staff all very friendly and do and incredible job trying to please you. Special mention must be made of Tama at the pool, nothing... More

I enjoyed my overall stay at Sofitel Moorea. The service is very good, the staff very friendly and helpful. I stayed in an overwater bungalow which was awesome but quite different from the pictures shown on the website. I found the food just okay, I think the menu could be more elaborated. Portions are huge. I had a massage at... More

I spent 2 nights here in a garden bungalow before a cruise and was upgraded to a garden bungalow on the beach instead of in the back "no view" garden bungalows. Room was quite large with an incredible modern bathroom with a huge shower with double glass doors that opened up to a private patio with it's own garden. We... More

This is an excellent hotel with the best beach in Moorea in my opinion. The staff are mostly local and very genuine and caring. The food is excellent as is the service. This is not a big glitzy resort, it is a bit more natural and relaxed which I really like. Overall, I think it is good value for money... More

Overall this resort is very good! Our beachfront bungalow was very enjoyable. Eventually they found our booking as it was under a totally different surname! Not sure how that happened. We had a little ginger cat that wanted to join us in our bungalow and then in the foyer a fat darker cat has pride of place in whatever chair... More

I stayed here in an over water bungalow, It is a very nice hotel but I cant help but feel that you pay such a premium for that over water aspect. The resort is nice and the staff are very attentive, it was very relaxing and I did enjoy my over all experience there. Do yourself a favor and go... More

We just came back from our honeymoon in the French Polynesia and wanted to share the tips and secrets on what we learned about travel and tourism to hopefully help any future travelers plan a fantastic, luxurious trip and be a little “cost-effective” considering the huge price tag you will be paying for this vacation. Firstly, we used a phenomenal... More

My wife and I just returned home from a week at Sofitel after spending a week in Sydney. Being on Moorea enabled us to decompress from our busy itinerary in Australia. Very glad to be home in South Carolina and finally off the plane! We loved Sofitel. Everything we hoped for. Over-water bungalow was great and just 3 numbers down... More
