We had a good 4 nights' stay at Sofitel, Moorea. The rooms, amenities, services and staff were excellent. There are corals located right off the beach outside our ocean view room and they are full of colorful fishes. There is easy access to the pier and airport, within 2 miles. There are also excellent restaurants within 15 minutes drives from the hotel, some that provide free shuttle to/from the hotel.

Dear Mr Thamnu s., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback from our guests. We are very happy to read that you enjoy the location. We will share this comment with our staff. Your satisfaction is the best reward for them. Thank you again for sharing your experience. We hope to welcome you again in our Paradise. Warm regards, Mrs Sabine Lamberts General manager Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort

Bungalow rooms look like they are going to fall into the ocean the pillars are so rusted and cracked. Docks to rooms are missing nails and rickety, ants in our bathroom, definitely termites wood powder piles everywhere, old stained furniture, air conditioning was not great way too small for room so not that cool, but also probably because there are no glass windows just wood window shutters which is not good when it’s so hot and humid, breakfast took me asking 5 people over 40 minutes to get coffee because no system to see who is helping who or seat people, buffet would get messy and not kept very nice looking while dining, the dining facility looked chipped on the walls and old, luau we paid $80 a person for host seemed annoyed we didn’t want to sit in the entry way at a table nobody wanted in a location so weird you’d have to see it and I had to ask someone else she wouldn’t move us even though lots of tables in back, no towel service at pool you have to figure it out and they just point to where you have to go, check out is 11am but the hotel makes you be packed and out at 10:30 per their instructions , waits for checking in. The biggest and worst issue is no shuttles or any transportation of any form so when you get off the ferry on the island you hugely struggle to find a ride to the hotel and there are no cabs waiting or Uber/Lyft on island so you are stuck until you can find someone to negotiate with you and take you and the hotel is only 2 miles from the ferry. The hotel will not transport you to the ferry when you leave either so you pay a lot in cab fees they have to arrange for you anywhere. Not even a shuttle to nearby villages. I’ve never stayed at a hotel that had no form of getting you anywhere. So the rooms and buildings were old, dark and dingy- but the grounds and pools were beautiful.

Delightful staff

After waiting for 2 years, my husband and I are finally here at the French Polynesia. The Sofitel is beyond our expectations. We stayed at the overwater bungalow with beautiful sunrise view and steps down to the lagoon with lots of colourful fish. The resort is well maintained, excellent customer service and excellent breakfast.

We had a wonderful time at the Sofitel - Moorea! We stayed for 3 nights and loved it! The location is excellent - we felt very secluded but not too far from restaurants and activities. The staff took very good care of us and met our every need. Loved our lagoon-front villa!

Steven T. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Great service, good rooms over water bungalows, good beaches. We had trouble walking the running / walking path. The path is not marked at all. It is hard to follow the pdf map the hotel provides. Infant, on day 1, we took a wrong turn and walked 4 miles before we realized we were not on the hotel path. I recommend, the hotel mark this path clearly. Once we discovered the correct path on day 3, the walk was very nice.

Dear Steven L & Raquel S T., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the SOFITEL Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback.

We loved our stay. We spent 4 nights in early May in a beachfront bungalow. We loved being a few steps from the ocean. When at the resort we spent time either in beach chairs by the water, in the water snorkeling, or in chairs on our front porch looking at the water and Tahiti off in the distance. The staff were friendly and always smiling. They were responsive to requests and made our stay very enjoyable.

The resort was beautiful! My husband and I’s stay was in one of the beachfront bungalows and it had amazing views of Tahiti right from our front deck. The staff was very attentive and quick to respond if anything was needed for the room. The only small issue we had was a slow draining sink in the bathroom, otherwise everything was well maintained in our bungalow. We really enjoyed the Polynesian show the last night of our stay. It was lots of fun and the performances were amazing! Would recommend this resort if you’re traveling to Mo’orea!

Parttimetraveler24 TripAdvisor review

From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff were very friendly, and accommodating. We got on the earliest ferry from Tahiti, and checked in around 7 am, with no issues. The over water bungalow was very clean and spacious, the weather and the water temperature was perfect. My favorite part in the hotel is the expansive lagoon with almost endless coral gardens, it’s almost like being dropped in an aquarium, countless varieties of fish to see, even saw a 6-7 ‘ black tipped shark minding his business and swing out to the break water!! Also while lounging on the beach, my wife and I saw whales breaching the shore on back to back days, incredible sight to see!! The only fault would be the food, not what we initially thought would be available, but none the less, an awesome experience, and based on this trip would prefer Moorea over Bora Bora.

Dear Parttimetraveler24, We are delighted to read that you had a great time with us and are pleased to receive your compliments of our property, staff and services. How lucky you were to see whales passing in front of the hotel! We hope you will keep this memory in your heart as well as your stay with us. We regret to read that you were not entirely satisfied with our food offer. We thank you for sharing your concerns which we have shared with our teams. Thank you for having chosen the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea for your honeymoon. With best regards,
