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... More

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... More
