great place ! A once in a life time experience

The over the water bedrooms are actually over the corals bedrooms, so you merely sleep over a aquarium and snorkle in it directly from your deck every time you want. They take care of the health of the corals which means the underwater world is beautiful and not too much damaged by the palms of the people The bar of the hotel is the place to be of the island so a lot of locals on Saturday nights. nice tahitian dancers and musician regularly and the staff is usually amiable. So in all, a little bit pricey but a real nice experience.

Ultimate Relaxation

Awesome setting in over water bungalow. Fantastic snorkeling right off your deck. Talk to Louisa (at concierge) really helpful and knowledgable. She set us up with Franco for Safari tour. Great fun and informative. He's a real character.

Our honeymoon at Moorea sofitel

Absolutely the best beach on the island. I was surprised to find out that the food was horrible and expensive. The first night I didn't want to get any thing that cost to much and found the cheapest thing on the menu. It was pasta with a red sauce and black olives (and that is all it was). It looked like a child put it together. It tasted "okay" but not GOOD. The next night I thought okay Im on my honeymoon I cant be so cheap and got the MAhi Mahi (dolphine) its like what they are known for. Let me just say I wish I would have ordered the paste....better yet stayed in my bungalow and ate PP&J. EveryTHING else was great just bring LOTS of snacks with you.......... and eat dinner at restraunts on the island. MOST of them Pick you up for FREE and drop you back off at the resort. Oh yea and on there web sit it says they have Internet. THEY DON"T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't buy a calling card, because I though I would just use the internet to let my family know I made it their safely. Well I could and the front desk lady (although very sweet) couldn't figure out how to make a call out of the country for us. But really it was a beautiful hotel I just think you should know how things can be so your not surprised like we were. We did love it, Moorea is a beautiful place!
