My trip was during my birthday, never heard this hotel til I took the trip via tourism, and it's including everything such as airport/port transfer and the reservation of hotel. I'm lucky to get the great room of Overwater Buglow! (I think it's room 118) the King bed with fantastic view for mountain & lagoon, you stay in room all... More

Let me begin by saying this hotel was the first and best stop on our honeymoon, but there were a couple of things that keep this place from being a five star experience. First, the good: The overwater bungalows are totally worth it. There was a little window where we could watch fish move underneath us while hanging out in... More

Sofitel Moorea is amazing: beautiful location, on the most beautiful beach in Moorea. Lovely decoration in the bungalows. Very good food (splendid location and view, especially for the beach bar, where you eat your feet in the white and soft sand). We also appreciate the maori or polynesian danses every evening around 7:45.

Trip booked with Carol Mills from 'travel counsellors" who did all the arranging of our dream holiday. We had two nights in Tahiti at the pearl beach resort and thought that it could not get any better than this, then a half hour ferry ride to Moorea island and when we arrived at our resort were gob smacked by the...

High priced? Noisy location in paradise "view" setting. Behind the main island road. Distance nioses of barking dogs and endless cock a doodle doo sounds. Behind hotel are noisy locals playing loud music , all be it the background. Very old noisy air conditioning. Basic thin plywood structure. Amateur staff. I felt overpriced food , overpriced drink. And all in... More

The Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora was the first stop of our honeymoon. From check-in through departure, we felt incredibly well taken care of. Not a detail was missed, from greeting us with fresh towels and juice upon arrival, to picking up our luggage from the room on the day of departure. The grounds and the ambience are incredible, and it... More

I was interested in reading other experiences and will actually acknowledge some of those in this review. Firstly ,Yes the check in can take a while we saw others waiting. We are Accor members and ours was quick and efficient. Check your check- in time prior to arrival and amend or question before you arrive is my advise. They stick... More

From the moment we got to the hotel to the time we left there was NOT a detail missed. We went for our honeymoon and stayed in the over-water bungalow and I would highly recommend it. We also ate at the Vue everyday for lunch (the bar staff is nothing short of amazing) and ate breakfast and dinner at the... More

Moorea is an amazing island and Sofitel made our experience there even better. It rained every single day of our stay, but somehow he had the best time ever! The OW bangalows certainly made a difference, it is a MUST do if you are already going all the way to Tahiti. The people from the Acquatic activities in the hotel... More

My wife and two children waited 2 1/2 hours for our food to come at the bar restaurant. The waitress finally came by and asked "how was your dinner"...we said "we still have not received it". No apologies, no water glass refilled, nothing. Our kids were exhausted after a long day and were starving. We ultimately just had to leave... More
