We spent just the day at The Sofitel Hotel when The Wind Spirit was docked in Cook's Bay Moorea. Beautiful resort with very personable staff members. I would not hesitate to stay here upon my return. We had a most enjoyable day there.

This property is beautiful. My gf and I stayed in one of the overwater luxury bungalows which was outstanding. The lagoon was beautiful, we snorkeled every morning and evening. The island itself is idyllic and much less expensive than Bora Bora. Unfortunately, this is just a 4-star hotel claiming to be 5-star. The service lacked. Granted we were there during... More

It's been a few years but just dying to go back. The Sofitel is a gorgeous resort with over the water bungalows that are a must do. It's so romantic. Fall in love all over again in this beautiful resort on Moorea. One of my most favorite places in the whole world.

This was a great choice for Moorea. The grounds are lovely, a nice beach, and incredible lagoon with a view of Tahiti. We spent 6 nights in an over-water bungalow and I was not disappointed - ample space, and great view of fish around the clock. We had #200, which wasn't very private (it was the closest one to land)... More

We stayed here for 3 magnificent days and nights last week, during our first trip to Tahiti. We had booked the Sofitel as I am a Gold Accor Member and we love the Sofitel brand. This hotel is an absolute jewel in the crown. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a warm welcome. A... More

This is a rare combination of a perfect beach, excellent snorkeling, and over water bungalows with amazing views. Out of the three resorts we stayed at in French Polynesia Sofitel Moorea had by far the prettiest beach with the best water clarity and the most marine life. We enjoyed a spacious over water horizon bungalow #217. We had an amazing... More

A very nice facility with a very cheerful and engaging staff. Our rooms over the water were beautiful and charming. A very nice Polynesian show on our arrival night. Good sports facilities and we especially enjoyed the Scuba diving and the swim with the Rays and the Sharks. Checkin felt very "processed" and room service was very erratic in performance.... More

We stopped in while touring the island and had lunch. The outdoor restaurant had amazing views of Tahiti. The staff was very attentive and the food was terrific! It was our best lunch while in FP! It was obvious that this is a well kept property and is our first choice if we ever go back to Moorea!

Our beach front bungalow not only had a spacious modern bathroom with double shower; you could also open the glass doors and have a bath or shower under the stars ! The food is of very good quality; the selection satisfactory, the service great, and the staff obliging and friendly. The sleep quality most nights is fine but Saturday night... More

Overall this was a nice stay but for a hotel that charges $700/$800+ per night you expect everything to be exceptional. Firstly the positive. The hotel is as shown in the brochure. The water is beautiful, snorkeling is great and the massage in the spa was awesome. The over watrr bungalow was nice but could use a lick of paint.... More
