The water is great and right across from you is some of the best snorkeling. You can rent a pontoon boat right down the beach from the hotel and go all around the island.
The resort is really old and is in need of serious updating. We had purchased over the water bungalows, but found them dirty and not real appealing, so we moved to beach front. They were a little better but, the bath room had mold growing in shower and the room wasn't very clean. We were very disappointed, after staying at the Sofitel in Moorea, it was beautiful. The service was just
Ok, the food was ok, nothing to brag on. The only wonderful thing was when you got into the water, you forgot about the hotels short comings. We did eat at 2 good restaurants Lucky House and Bloody Mary's, the hotel have shuttles to take you and pick you up.
We will go back, but will stay somewhere else. It is the most beautiful water. A must is to go on a private snorkel trip with Moana Adventure Tours, ask for Vincent for a guide, he is a professional
Photographer too and will take pictures of you for an extra cost, but turn out unbelievable.
