Our stay at Sofitel was incredible. We stayed for two nights in an ocean view bungalow and two nights in an overwater bungalow. Both bungalows were amazing and very luxurious. The snorkeling at the property is great, we saw many tropical fish and a sting ray all just beneath our bungalow. When our overwater bungalow started to get ants, the property immediately sent someone to clean it up and upgraded us to a horizon view overwater bungalow. I highly recommend this resort as a place to stay on Moorea. The only downside was it was a little difficult to get to other spots on the island, since Sofitel is very close to the ferry, but far from other spots like Magic Mountain and Belvedere lookout and we didn’t have a car. Sofitel will rent you scooters though, and most activities can arrange for taxi’s or pickup.

Amazing Staff/Resort Needs Renovation
We had just come from Bora Bora and ended up here, where we had stayed before. This was likely a mistake as our accommodation in BB was excellent. This resort is in desperate need of renovation. The rooms are 3* at very best. They are very old and the wear shows. The staff could not be nicer and more lovely but the resort is not in good shape.
