I stayed at the Sofitel for my honeymoon in one of the over the water bungalows. It was a great experience!!! The hotel provides you with complementary snorkeling equipment which is great because you can just jump in the water and snorkel away. The room itself Is very comfortable and accommodating. The restaurants are nice with above average food. However,... More

This is our 8th trip to tahiti and Moorea and our 4 day stay at the Sofitel Ora Beach Resort was a perfect beginning to our 2 week trip! We arrived Moorea early morning tired after a long flight, but Sophie, the concierge, and Viatiare the front receptionist, arranged for us to have immediate access to our rooms, although checking...

We stayed at the Sofitel based on the recommendation of several friends. The location is beautiful, the sand is soft, the water is crystal clear and there are plenty of fishes for your swimming/snorkeling enjoyment. We originally booked a beach view bungalow but once we checked it out, found it to be like a small, dated cabin. Not what we... More

Our two night stay in a luxury beachfront bungalow promised so much - sofitel reputation, crystal clear water, close to the ferry. However, we were disappointed with some ,not all, aspects of this luxury location. The occupancy was very low at the time we visited, possibly because others may have been aware that December and January are the wet months... More

This hotel is exactly what we were looking for: a tropical oasis with over water bungalows. Check in is more like sitting in a tikki hut, you feel very welcomed. It is lush, well appointed and tropical. We were greeted with juice and lays of flowers. They remembered us by name the entire stay; which was impressive (no looking up... More

We came to Moorea last year and stayed at this property over Thanksgiving and it was so pleasant that we decided to come back 12 months later! From the convenience of arriving on the ferry from Papeete and having the hotel only 5 minutes away, to the easy and efficient check-in service and the beautiful amenities, this place will have...

Nice resort, terrible customer service. Food was over-priced in resort and we didn't get what we paid for. Left the restaurant hungry. No communication with Management as they were no where to be found. Inconsistency with service throughout our stay. Beautiful property but disappointing holiday. Will not go back to Sofitel Moorea.

I booked a three night stay at the Sofitel prior to a seven night cruise. I paid for three nights in a superior over water bungalow. Upon arrival I was offered an upgrade to a luxury over water bungalow for two nights but would have to spent the third night in the superior OWB. I took them up on the... More

I know....the bungalows are quite nice and the snorkeling is fabulous. The staff is "okay". The restaurant has just "okay" service but the food is terrible. There were 8 of us for dinner. Nobody could eat their food. You might think there would be a picky person or two in the group but truly, the food is not good. the... More

We could not decide so we stayed in both places, one night each. If you don't want to read the whole review, let me say what you should do: Stay in both places! Though Hilton is newer, we liked Sofitel a lot also. Two reasons: 1-We went there in a low season, so there were plenty of availability. And Sofitel... More
