Stepping onto this resort is true paradise, almost out of a dream. We adored our overwater bungalow and the quiet, peaceful nature of our stay. I only wish they would have added a special touch or two for our honeymoon. We traveled 1/2 way across the world after picking this place out of so many options, but didn't get as... More

My husband and I spent 4 days there. I've stayed at another Sofitel before in a different country and my experience was really bad. This one was not far behind. Let's start with the location. Very close to the airport, nice clean hotel with nicely furnished bungalows. We upgraded to a beach bungalow which was really worth it. We were... More

We spent 5 nights at this Sofitel. The resort is beautiful and definitely on one of the most beautiful beaches on Moorea. We drove past the other resorts on our island tour and none of them seemed as nice. Like the other guests, we got in early after an overnight flight from LAX. While we new we would probably have...

Sitting in your beach bure looking through the coconut palms to the sea gently lapping on the white sand with the surf crashing on the reef in the distance. Beyond the reef the island of Tahiti nui whose shimmering lights sparkle below the stars above in the evening. It doesn't get much better than this. Great restaurant, we had the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from April 18 thru April 23. The hotel is very beautiful and the staff very polite. One employee that stands out is Luisa. She is the PR of the hotel and will make you feel like you are the only one at the hotel. Ask for her if you want a trouble... More

When we arrived to Sofitel it was so beautiful and perfectly spot. I would like to Thank Luisa, Amy, and all the other staff(s) for helping us in finding our lost luggage during our transfer from Houston to LAX, it was a nightmare when we heard our baggages were lost and we were so emotionally sad landing in Tahiti without...

We were here for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful choice. We had a room overlooking the lagoon, it was simply wonderful. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Highly recommended. However, ask what your companies the use before booking a tour, we had quite a bad one with safari mario. I'd recommend asking for a local guide. The jet... More

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Moorea at this resort. It's clean and the staff is 1st class. Thank you Viviane, Ursula and Haiava for your help and hospitality. A big shout out to everyone who showed up in the middle of the night because we were afraid of geckos!. See you in 5 years

We stayed over the water for three nights then went on a cruise for 10 days and saw 6 other islands. Both my wife and I agreed that staying here was the highlight. The water quality and the coral project made for the very good snorkeling. The site is beautiful, well taken care of and staff was very friendly. After... More

What a wonderful time! The resort is clean. The employees are very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. Good activities such as the Lagoonarium. Our premium beach front bungalow was perfect. We met some wonderful guests as well. The water and beach were amazing.
