We were so happy we stayed at the Sofitel for our three nights on Moorea in late December 2016, including Christmas. The property is only five minutes from the ferry, which makes it the most convenient of the luxury resorts for maximizing your beach time. We loved the quiet, peaceful, spacious vibe of the property, and our overwater bungalow was...

We stayed 2 nights here at the over-the-water bungalows and I must say, it was an awesome experience! Although they did not provide us with any special decoration or arrangement for our honeymoon, the room was neat and tidy and it came with a bottle of champagne. There were however a few things to note: we had to remind them...

While I did not stay here at the hotel my brother did and his wedding was held here also. The resort was amazing, the food fabulous, we all loved the dancers and being offered cold water regularly before and after the ceremony was a lovely touch. My only recommendation is that you be aware that while most people speak English...

When researching the right place for our stay in Moorea I was undecided for a long time. The Sofitel seemed to have the perfect vibe for us, but I was a bit reluctant to book because it's located on the eastern shore of Moorea, so no sunset and - some put it a bit tragically here - no more sun...

This hotel is amazing! From the moment you arrive, until you leave, you'll be enchanted by the environment, the kindness of the staff, the quality of the room (we had the one at the very end on the lagoon).

Arrived on Tahiti island after chocking down the cigarette smoke of 150 French passengers. Took a ferry to paradise. This hotel was the best ever. I spent 10 hours a day in the water. The sea life was so much more than I'd dreamed.

My husband and I just returned from Sofitel Moorea after being there for New Year's Eve. We cannot say enough good things about this place. The location is beautiful, the overwater bungalows were perfect for snorkeling, and the folks that work here could not be more service-oriented.

We stayed here for 5 nights including New Year's Eve - which was a well organised event/evening with a great fireworks display at midnight. The customer service was fantastic with all stafff very friendly and helpful - no request was to hard. The location is spectacular and the water in the lagoon was crystal clear with fish swimming around everywhere.
