Stayed here earlier this month and enjoyed every moment. The property is beautiful with a very nice layout. We stayed in a garden bungalow, but still had a wonderful view of the water from our patio. The snorkeling was great with crystal clear and calm water just steps away every day. My wife enjoyed a spa day and was very... More

Room - we stayed in villa 217, an overwater bungalow at the end of the pontoon with unobstructed views of the island of Tahiti and also the beach and hotel property. The views were stunning! It does get quite windy on this side of the island, however the breeze is welcomed after a long day in the hot sun. For... More

My husband and I had a great stay at the Sofitel for our honeymoon. The resort was stunning and our overwater bungalow was amazing (I would opt to get the luxury one over the standard overwater bungalow). The staff was very nice, always greeting us wherever we went and they were always eager to help. The water was gorgeous. After... More

great place to get away and relax-- luxury without destroying the beauty of nature--over the water bungalows are awesome--on the down side, the rooms are way too expensive and the hotel food is good but not great--but it is not a tourist trap and the beauty of nature and the friendly people make it a great retreat--a combination of the...

This is my second negative review about a supposedly 5 star hotel after le Tahaa during my stay in French Polynesia. This is my second disappointment. I really don't understand how all luxury hotels sites can provide such wrong information. They should really update their information. What was true a few years ago isn't today.

The over water bungalows were paradise. This is the kind of place dreams are made of. I went with my girlfriend. We never wanted to leave! The bed was a canopy bed. The bathroom shower was a walk in/outdoor shower. Deck was spacious with an outdoor shower as well.
