Very beautiful hotel and staff are fantastic. Excellent service. We stayed in the garden bungalows which, although probably not as good as the luxury over the water ones, were still very well presented and close enough to the beach to enjoy a beautiful beach holiday. The best thing about Sofitel is the beach. Its the best on the island in... More

In 2015 no so-called luxury hotels do not offer free WIFI. Well Sofitel forces you to pay for WIFI that doesnt work and pay for additional WIFI when you need to web check-in for longhaul flight home. Dont order halfboard as 80% of menucard has add-on anyway and there are plenty of local yummy restaurants such as Rudy's offering free... More

The Sofitel in Moorea, not only has the most beautiful beach and view of Tahiti but it is also a very well distributed hotel. It has two bars, one in the main complex and a more low-key beach bar. It also has great food, daily happy hour with live music and entertainment, and nice selection of food and wine. Every... More

We stayed in a beachfront bungalow Jan. 12-15, 2015. It was an excellent experience. The service was top notch, the room was wonderful (we weren't expecting air conditioning! Yay!). The beach is stunning. Surprisingly, there aren't many beaches on Moorea and one of the locals told us that Sofitel has the best one. The breakfast buffet is great with Nutella... More

We stayed for three nights following a long cruise. The property is stunning and lush and we opted for the OWB #106. None of the doors closes completely, so you aren't completely protected from the mosquitoes or other bugs that find their way in. Not enough towels for an area where the humidity keeps things damp for a while. The... More
