This hotel is located on Temae beach, which is a great beach. The snokeling is great, and there are plenty of fish and coral because it's protected. Watch out for the currents as they can be strong. We are good swimmers, and use fins and it was still hard to swim. The hotel seems to be nice, we used their...

OMG! amazing and a dream come true! Went to Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. This was far the best. We had a bungalow over the water, every morning on the patio was like a huge aquarium, each hut has it's own entry way into the water. The room was gorgeous, spacey and elegant. We had lunch daily at the bar....

We booked the Sofitel in Moorea for an over the water bungalow at about 700 US per night. We were not told that the hotel was undergoing renovations when we booked, because we would never have gone there knowing that one restaurant and the bar was closed! The one restaurant that remained opened was expensive and served mediocre food, with...

We stayed 4 nights in Moorea from January 20th to the 24th,2012. This resort is 5 minutes from the airport, so the transfers are very easy. We arrived at the hotel around 12:30pm. We were told we would have to wait until 2pm for our room. We were offered a juice at the reception desk and we told them we...

What a stunning resort! I stayed one night here with my boyfriend. We enjoyed our stay very much, and were stunned at the beauty, calm and luxurious atmosphere about the hotel. We enjoyed a 1h massage in the spa which was very pleasant. The restaurant offered a nice selection of Polynesian buffet dishes, but it wasn't top notch cuisine. However,...

The over the water bungalow is the way to stay there. Since we have a glass floor, as soon as we checked in, we saw fish were swirming under our room ... as if they were instructed to be there. We were in the infinity pool and I got to talking to the GM. I mentioned that their pan-au-chocolat in...
