We had a Superior Horizon Overwater Bungalow (Room 212) which looked out to the horizon and the Sofitel beach area and had a partially covered deck (very necessary in the heat...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 March 2017

The Sofitel is one of those tropical paradise locations you see on TV or the movies. I stayed in an over-the-water bungalow and it was very cute and well maintained. Bare in mind that not all bungalows here are created equal, we had one of the most innard set buildings with about a 40 degree angle of view of the...

We had a Horizon Superior Overwater Bungalow, which was absolutely magnificent. The room was clean and tidy, and well appointed. Loved the snorkelling off our private terrace. The reef around the resort is fantastic, with plenty of colourful fish in residence. The food was was superb. Staff were always attentive, however the service at the Pure restaurant was at times...

Stopped by for a day in Paradise and this Hotel on the water delivered. Beautiful grounds and rooms, all detached residences. Infinity pool over the sea is excellent. Funny seeing wild chickens pop in and out of the restaurant but it is a small island.

Sofitel Moorea was an amazing experience. We thought the resort provided an intimate personalized experience. On all the days we were there, we had the same service staff who treated us like family. We appreciated how it was slightly isolated from town which gave it a private intimate experience. We stayed in an overwater bungalow and the snorkeling below our...
