This was the most expensive trip my husband and I have ever taken, and with the cost we were shocked (and disappointed) that we would have to pay for water with our meals. That aside - the staff were all very friendly and helpful. A special shout-out to Jeanne, Teupoo and Heinz (the breakfast omelette chef who is as entertaining...

The snorkeling around the bungalows was the best ever. You can step off the deck of your bungalow into the warm, clear water teeming with beautiful fish. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The view from our horizon bungalow was beyond expectations. We hardly left the bungalow deck except to snorkel or eat because the views of the water and Tahiti were...

Food was delicious, room was breathtaking, the best fish and snorkeling right outside your bungalow, beachfront private dinner I will never forget! Concierge wasn't very helpful but good thing we are resourceful, I never wanted to leave.

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...
