We spent 4 days here after our trip to Bora Bora. Really disappointed with the lack of beach. There is limited swimming other than in the pool. The rooms need updating. We stayed in a beach bungalow. I am glad we didn't spend the money for over the water because they were not impressive. Some of the worst we saw... More

We stayed in room 410, a premium overwater bungalow for seven days in early July 2016, only a couple of weeks after the name change from the Pearl to Manava. We had just departed the Intercontinental in Papeete which we really enjoyed and we were wondering if the Manava could be as good. We were not disappointed. The Manava is... More

We enjoyed our 6 days here in paradise! We were in one of the OWB and they were amazing! We had one on the very end (not premium) but had a view of the mountains and still got the sunrise view. The rooms are extremely nice! And all staff are welcoming. The jet ski tours also leave from this resort... More

Stayed here in 2015 when it was still the Pearl but we loved this hotel. Had an over water bungalow which is a must do when you first travel to French Polynesia. The room was comfortable and large with the glass floor so you can have your very own fish show at night. The lagoon is right out your door... More

Rooms were very spacious, food, staff and everything else was really good. Access to snorkel gear, paddle boards and kayaks were great and super easy to book tours from the front. Great stay. Would highley reccomend the quad bike tour and the lagoon tour where you got to pat stingrays

They just changed their name to the Maneva, I'm not sure why, but it dosn't matter. I can find nothing wrong with it. We splashed out for a premium OWB and it was worth it .

We stayed in a premium overwater bungalow for 4 nights. Room 409. The way the premium bungalows are arranged, I don't think it matters much which room you have as they are all fairly private and have great access to the lagoon for snorkeling.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa nestles on the island shore, just by the village of Maharepa in an ideal location, between the majestic Cook’s Bay and the Gulf of Moorea. It’s very convenient, at just 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the ferry terminal, and with boutiques, restaurants and a small shopping center close at hand. The style of the resort is a tasteful combination of the traditional and the contemporary with a powerful sense of Polynesia. There are 28 over-water bungalows built over the lagoon on piles, 8 more bungalows on the beach and 28 spread through the beautiful grounds with their own private pools and little gardens. The remaining 22 rooms and 8 duplexes of this 94-unit resort are in a small building. Whichever accommodation you choose, you will have air-conditioned comfort (the bungalows also have ceiling fans), an outside terrace, mini-bar, hairdryer, safe, flat-screen television and DVD player, I-pod dock and WiFi. From your hotel base we will be happy to arrange a full range of exciting excursions and activities and of course you can relax at the resort where you’ll enjoy one of the largest infinity pools of the island. Each bungalow has a sunny outside terrace with comfortable loungers. From the over-water ones, there is direct access to the lagoon. The premium over-water bungalows are especially well situated, close to the coral reef ledge so you can immediately swim off and discover a fascinating world of colored fish and exotic corals. Near the over-water bungalows, we have developed our own coral nursery- To’A Nui - a coral regeneration project and part of our commitment to protecting the fragile environment that surrounds us. This site encourages the proliferation of marine life whose beauty is so easily enjoyed with simple snorkeling equipment. You will find a luxurious and convivial resort on a human scale, offering a warm welcome to honeymooners,romantic couples, families, nature lovers and scuba-divers. We have two restaurants - The Mahanai - and the acclaimed gourmet restaurant - The Matiehani. The Autera’a is a perfect terrace bar for sipping your favorite beverage. Other facilities include a bar, two meeting rooms, a boutique and a full range of activities and excursions both on land and on the water. We also have a dive center, a Polynesian tattoo facility and a spa. The Manea Spa specializes in massages and treatments using traditional Polynesian methods and 100% natural products from the island’s flowers and plants, including the famous monoi oils from the coconut palm. Thespa has a hammam, Jacuzzi and the "Rumi Avai" where you can discover the pleasures of our unique aquatic massages. ... more   less
