When looking for hotels in the French Polynesia, the Sofitel Moorea definitely caught my eye right away. I loved almost every minute of my stay in the French Polynesia, especially at the Sofitel. I arrived to the hotel around 10am and waited a couple hours for my room to be ready. The hotel gave us vouchers for the breakfast buffet...

Top resort on a gorgeous island. Satisfying a long-held curiosity about the islands of French Polynesia, a friend booked a package deal from Sydney, through Auckland to Papeete. Then it is only a half hour trip on the ferry to Moorea. Sofitel is only 10 minutes from the Moorea Ferry Terminal. The Sofitel resort on Moorea is very well designed...

We stayed at the Sofitel for the first 5 nights of our honeymoon this past November and fell in love with this hotel right away! The property is absolutely gorgeous. They greet you with fresh fruit juice and a cold washcloth that smells like lovely gardenias. We stayed in a luxury garden bungalow, which was right behind a small beach...

This was our first stop in French Polynesia and we loved every minute of it. Beautiful bungalows with gorgeous views. Excellent service. Great snorkeling around the bungalows. The food at the hotel is pretty good and reasonably priced. Great value for money!

In our opinion, the best hotel on Moorea. Beautiful rooms, beach, the BEST snorkeling on the island hands down! Super friendly staff, great breakfast, good drink selection at the bar, etc. Overall, we highly recommend it. The only area that could use improvement is the dinner menu - good but not great. But there are many outstanding restaurants to eat...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in a lagoon view bungalow. The lagoon is beautiful and great views of Tahiti. The crystal clear blue water is right out of a picture. There is also great snorkelling right off the resort. We brought our own gear but they provide snorkelling gear for the duration of your stay. Watch out...
