What a fabulous place to stay 2 couples in our late 60 and we stayed in 2 beachfront deluxe units right on the beach. We did have the backs of the overwater units to look at but they are far enough away it didnt matter. Late November and the weather was fabulous. You can virtually snorkel all day, lots to... More

The room was very nice, with plenty of space even with a bed for our daughter, very nice bathroom and relaxing view on the small lake in front (n°502). The sandy beach is long and clean. You find the long chair at any time of the day. If you decide to test the polynesian canoe, make sure to put life... More

An overwater bungalow at Tahiti has been on the bucket list for my wife and I for the past 34 years since we were married & it was well worth the wait. Being 54 years of age you can't not expect some kids & friends to come along, so daughters 21 & 23 had a garden villa, as did our... More

I stayed here for the first part of my honeymoon for 4 nights. We stayed in the Luxury Beach Bungalow. We had planned a few excursions, but all companies picked us up at the resort. Resort staff were friendly and very accommodating. The infinity pool is great and right in front of the beach. The snorkeling is one of the... More

Sorry Sofitel you are being rated after our visit to tahaa resort. Many of the staff need customer service training if you want to be recognized as five star. Room was nice but decorations out dated and furniture not comfy and inviting. Beach was fabulous. Snorkeling outstanding. Location great! -4 stars is as far as I can go! The towel... More

We were able to step off our balcony and snorkel in beautiful water with amazing fish life. The Resort was great, the service at breakfast was superb (especially Caroline) always friendly and...

My husband booked our 10 night vacation for our 32nd anniversary at this most beautiful location. I had looked at these bungalow years before thinking how inviting they looked.

Great overwater bungalow, window in the floor to watch the tropical fish, fine restaurants, and, especially, staff members who adopted us like members of their own family. Special appreciation for Delphine Fontaine, Caroline (at restaurant), Rakael (housekeeper), and concierge Ju Jing. Already thinking of our next visit.
