We travel extensively and have stayed in everything from 5 star luxury resorts to zero star dumps all around the planet, but find it's the staff that usually defines the overall experience. While the Sofitel is certainly a nice resort in paradise, it's the people working there that keep us coming back. Moorea is usually considered a 'stop-over' for the... More

Beautiful beach and grounds. The overwater bungalows are wonderful, worth the extra price. Breakfast was excellent, did not eat dinner at the resort. Would be nice if they had shuttle service to/from the ferry dock rather than wait for a taxi.

we were lucky to be here at the end of low season when the weather is typically not great, but for our stay it was perfect. No rain, low humidity, and little wind, so the snorkeling was the best we've ever experienced. Climbing into the water directly from an overwater bungalow and the diversity of fish exceeded our expectations. Another... More

We landed in Tahiti in the early hours of the morning and there isn't any method of water or air transport to get you to Moorea from Tahiti at 1am. So we stayed at the Intercontinental in Faa'a. We caught the Ameriti ferry to Moorea at 11:45am which cost us about USD$15 per person one way. The trip is 30-40mins... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience at Sofitel Moorea, i was surprised to see that you get to the room by yourself as in our standard you must be escorted by electrical car with a public relation to your bungalow, and then they have to explain all the functionment of all the equipment availble in your bungalow, including...

We have stayed at the Moorea Sofitel 15 times so that says a lot! We stay 2 weeks in an overwater bungalow. It is the closest thing to paradise we know. The staff is so friendly and accomadating! The lagoon is the best in Moorea. The lagoon has tons of tropical fish, Rays, beautiful clams, octopus, it is just indescribable.... More

Travelling with our 16-month old toddler, we had a great time at the Sofitel Moorea. There's really nothing to fault at all. We stayed in a luxury garden bungalow for 4 nights and it was superb. The room was clean, spacious and cool with a very reliable and strong airconditioner. The ensuite bathroom was massive and we enjoyed the large... More

First of all, make sure you get an over the water bungalow facing outwards, not in overlooking all the other bungalows. Although make sure that when you snorkel from your bungalow's patio, you swim inside all the bungalows- that's where the best coral gardens are. The pins coladas (virgin for me) are $12, so make sure you tell them no... More

...has been realized in a wonderful place with a wonderful over water bungalow at a glass clear ocean. all perfect with wonderful service staff (Vahine at the restaurant and the bell boy Osvaldo?) I sincerely hope that this extremely expensive place (even for WiFi you have to pay) is remunerating this wonderful staff in a equal way. Herbert

I absolutely love this place The room was very spacious with exceptionally comfortable bed and pillows. the staff were fantastic. I was here for my 40th birthday. The bathroom opens through sliding doors with an open shower with waterfall head, and a toilet behind a separate door and twin sink I have attached some pictures be your own judge.
