My wife, our two children and I stayed for 4 nights in June. Because there were 4 of us we could not book an overwater bungalow and by happy accident decided to book the deluxe two room villa. The hotel essentially took two bungalows and connected them by building a beautiful living room between the rooms. When we entered the... More

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Sofitel. We found them by working with Claudia from Pacific for Less and she put together a great package for us. We had a wonderful garden bungalow with prime view of the lagoon, bountiful breakfasts, and snorkel gear. The lagoon is a beautiful snorkel area. If you're looking for... More

We were vacillating on Intercontinental vs. Sofitel and got a better deal plus fatwallet cashback with Sofitel so went that route. No regrets - great staff, very nice accomodations, lots of options, and good food! Sofitel is the first hotel from the port (Faaa International to port in Papeete, take 30 min ferry (taxi is 2000 CFP airport to port)... More

We were fortunate to stay here for seven nights..originally booked for four but after one day nowhere else competes so cancelled original booking at another destination and stayed here. We had an overwater bungalow and this was magic..the array of beautiful fish just swimming in the clearest water was breathtaking. Our room was gorgeous spotless and just amazing. It is... More

We stayed three nights at this property in March 2014. Although we've repeatedly visited Temae Beach (where the Sofitel is located), this was our first stay at the property. I was particularly excited to visit as it was the only one of the "big four" resorts that we had not stayed at. We've been repeat guests at the Pearl, the... More

My husband and I spent one of the nights on our honeymoon in an overwater bungalow at Sofitel Moorea. This was on my bucket list, and for good reason. Often you see pictures that make a shabby place look beautiful, but the pictures of this island and hotel do not do it justice. It was truly breathtaking. We stayed in... More

Sofitel Moorea is a great alternative if you feel you may get bored in Bora Bora. The hotel has all the charm and amazing overwater bungalows that you get in Bora Bora, but you access to all the activities available on Moorea Island. The overwater bungalows are just amazing. Request one on the end of the board walk. The views... More
