This was an amazing property. Staff was super helpful and friendly. The over the water bungalows had amazing views. Be prepared to rent a car or rely on a taxi to get around. 1 thing to note....many taxi's don't run after 5pm so if you want to go to a particular restaurant in the evening, many restaurants will send a...

There are so many wonderful things to say about this resort, I don't know where to begin. First and foremost, the staff was absolutely amazing! I travel quite a bit and don't remember the last time I had such a hospitable, warm & friendly staff, who seemed to really care about us being there and attending to our needs. The... More

We returned from Moorea two weeks ago and I still cannot stop thinking about our experience! Overall the Sofitel was a magnificent experience. However, here are some pros and cons we found: Pros: Screen saver worthy views, gorgeous lagoon water, beautiful over water bungalows, friendly staff, breakfast! Cons: Wifi, check-in time Recommendations: My wife had the brilliant idea of traveling... More

Anita was an amazing representative. She really looked after our group.she would be one if the best memories.the over water bungalow could have used some repair. Loose boards and railings that was really making it uneasy in the deck. The staff was amazing they are such nice people .

This by far was the best hotel. The dinners were not worth what you pay, however the breakfasts were great with unlimited bacon (our favorite). The lines were not long to get your food. Toma at the pool is an employee that stands out to us. He was knowledgeable and friendly with information for us about the area. The walk... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of a sailing trip and it was just heaven! We had the superior over-water bungalow and it was just that. Gorgeous shower that opened out onto the water, 2 private decks with a ladder and your own outdoor shower. Coffee machine, all the small luxuries you would expect in a room... More

Just returned from what was truly an amazing vacation. We arrived in Moorea 8 days ago. We flew into Tahiti and took the ferry over. It is a very easy trip. If coming from LA, I definitely suggest taking the 11pm flight and arriving in Tahiti very early morning. That way you have the entire day. We arrived at the... More

We stayed for 5 nights in an overwater bungalow. One of the best experience we have ever had. Moorea is the island to go to, forget Bora Bora better to save your money the island is more picturesque. The lagoon is full of fish and great coral outcrops, Loved the K restaurant, will definitely be going back.

Stayed here for 7 nights in 119 in an above water bungalow. Was a great 7 days. Weather was amazing and staff were very attentive. Moorea itself has a lot of activities you can take part in.
