After 24 hours of travel time were happy when we finally arrived at this beautiful resort. It was 2 hours before check in and our room was available. We stayed in garden room 500. Very private and comfortable room. The first day was slightly overcast. Went to the beach and did some snorkeling. The next day we took bikes to...

Nice sandy beach with good access to the sea that is deep enough to swim. Even if the resort is not small the privacy is quite fine. The room is well designed, e.g. air-con is not facing the bed, the bathroom has regular doors ;-).

Service was excellent, and the staff was very helpful in organising our activities. We rented bicycles, hired kayaks and paddleboards, and went snorkelling and scuba diving. The restaurant and bar were excellent, and there was a beautiful infinity pool. If you want to save a little money by not getting the overwater bungalows, the bungalows directly on the beach are...

Quite simply, the Sofitel Moorea is an exceptional resort. The rooms, the gardens, facilities and the beach are in amazing condition and attention to detail is at a premium.

We have just had an amazing stay at the Sofitel Moorea. What a place! On arrival on the island of Moorea by ferry, we were happy to find that the hotel is only a short ride from the port...no more than 5min by car. A taxi costs about 1000 Francs and a bus is 300 Francs per person. The room...

We had our 5 night-stay at Sofitel Moorea during the first leg of our honeymoon. It was paradise - simply honey. The beach is the best on the island. Great reef, and snorkeling gives you satisfaction within a few strokes. The cabanas are perfect in size and quality. The over-water bungalows were great, and private, almost too secluded - so...
