Stayed at this resort in August 2016. The check in process was quick and easy. As we arrived earlier then the check in time our room wasn't ready yet but we expected this would be the case. We had our swimmers in a back pack and headed for a swim and some lunch while the time passed. The room was... More

The rooms very cozy and clean (me and my wife tried the luxury garden bungalow), the staff warm and friendly and the food delicious, especially at the K restaurant (do not miss the opportunity of the exclusive dinner "pieds dans l'eau" at the K restaurant!). In three words: A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE!

Not one thing negative to say about this beautiful property or the staff. We were welcomed with beautiful Flower necklaces and a very kind staff.

The Sofitel Moorea is beautifully located on the Tahiiti-facing sunrise side of Moorea. Furthermore, the waters that are under the bungalows and out to the lagoon edge teem with fish, clams, crabs and the most wonderful corals. It really was a special treat to enter the water every morning from our bungalow and enjoy the fish and coral at close... More

A lovely resort next to a great beach. Nice Infinity swimming pool complex.

My husband and I wanted a relaxing beach vacation and this place more then met our expectations! First of all, Moorea is not Hawaii. It's much less developed and much less crowded and arguably more beautiful. We picked this location because we read that it was on one of the best beaches on the island and that you could snorkel...
