Walkers Honeymoon 2021

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Ryan W. Couples - 16/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked through Costco and it was a huge win. Had food included as well as all travel arrangements (made it extremely easy once we arrived). The hotel was incredible. The staff was incredible. The food was good, but got old after being there for 8 days. Internet was satisfactory, was cutting in/out the entire time there. TV was not good. Could only watch regular TV and did not have connectivity to streaming services. This would have made things more enjoyable considering curfew was 9pm

Friendly staff

The staff was amazing, greeting us by name. The manager personally approached us whenever she felt it was appropriate which we appreciated. It was amazing and we have recommended Sofitel to many friends already.

Dear Annette B., We thank you for your positive impressions of our beautiful property and staff and we are thrilled to read that you really enjoyed the warm polynesian hospitality of our teams. We thank you for choosing the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort for your vacation in Moorea. We hope that you kept great memories !

Pleasant stay

Dan M. Couples - 14/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall the experience was nice. The staff was helpful and kind. We were disappointed in the room (old orange table, a sofa awkwardly placed, no place for suitcases and little clothing storage options) and many areas outside needed upkeep and cleaning.

Rooms need some TLC but overall an enjoyable experience

Pete M. Couples - 13/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were in a beach front bungalow. From the looks of things, they are starting to redo the roofs on the bungalows, and the shower needs some refurbishing, but the beds were comfy and rest of the room was in good shape. The food was OK but not 5 star. The resort staff was wonderful and always willing to be at your service. The location is amazing, and the snorkel trip with Nico and Poto from the activity center was the highlight of our trip!!

Beautiful Property and Kind Staff

Russ M. Couples - 12/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The beach at the Sofitel is absolutely stunning. The crystal clear water and white sandy beach are among the best in all of French Polynesia. That said, there were quite a few instances that left a lot to be desired. The room when we first arrived was dirty, with a broken door, and hair in the shower. We were moved to another room, which was very kind of the staff, but it was certainly a difficult first impression. I should make clear, the staff at the Sofitel was incredibly kind, courteous, and respectful. As part of our package, we were supposed to have our fridge re-stocked with drinks daily. We did not have it happen 3 times and were given some pushback when we asked for what we paid for due to "we didn't drink all of the drinks." We just wanted replaced what we did in fact drink. Also one night, we were having a drink after dinner with another couple when suddenly the lights were turned off on us and we were left in the pitch black. Finally, there really were no little touches that make a good resort a great resort, even something as simple as staff seeing if you need a drink or food at the beach or the pool. As many reviews reflect, the food at the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. While the breakfast is fine, the dinner is borderline inedible. Our food came out a few minutes after we ordered, and clearly was not cooked to order, but rather prepared well in advance and then reheated. The fish was rubber, which feels inexcusable with how much fresh fish is available. The resort really needs to look at making this a lot better. Almost every couple we spoke with had the same feedback and that is why everyone goes to eat off the resort almost every night. Overall, the stay was great. The property is beautiful. With some small changes and a little effort in the kitchen, this really could be the premier resort in Moorea.

Excellent Resort

Our bungalow on the water was beautiful with a great view. The food was good and service very friendly. We also had fun snorkeling at the coral that was right at the resort.

Was a good experience with the exception of two things… we were supposed to have Champaign in our room when we arrived and it took two days fo make that happen. Also our mini bar was not restocked daily with housekeeping so we had to call for that as well. Other than that it was a good place to stay.

We visited the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort for our 13th wedding anniversary. The staff were very welcoming and the over-water bungalow was fantastic. We found the atmosphere to be very quite and private...the grounds were beautiful. The concierge and activity desk was most helpful to arrange excursions and dinner reservations. A big THANK YOU to the restaurant staff for always greeting us with a smile.

We stayed for 5 nights for our honeymoon. The snorkeling in the water near the bungalows was excellent. We enjoyed the close proximity to nearby activities such as catamaran and ATV tours. The quality of the food and mixed drinks on the resort was not up to par with the other excellent aspects of the experience.

Steven Couples - 08/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The best views and snorkeling maybe in the world. The overwater bungalows were fantastic and definitely something everyone should have on their bucket list. Complimentary snorkel, kayaking, paddle board, and outrigger. Food and drinks were expensive so be prepared. The staff was super friendly and very helpful especially during the pandemic. Get drinks at happy hour, but avoid the happy hour food.

The SOFITEL was the highlight of our honeymoon. Authentic paradise with warm hospitality showed by all. We loved the lagoon (so many fish!) and the local birds whom kept us company during our stay. We made best friends with the rosters! Perfect relaxation. Breathtaking view. Highly recommend. We will be returning next year!

Everything is picturesque and absolutely beautiful. All of the staff are kind and excited. We particularly were impressed with Lucinda in the restaurant area and Tama at the beach bar. There was plenty to do, and we loved renting the bikes! If we could come back every year we would. perfect location and by far the most beautiful beach on the island. The snorkeling was also amazing and we got to see sting rays and sharks and various fish right from our room.

Very nice hotel, great over water room, food was okay

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Parttimetraveler24 20/09/2021 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,
