This was our first stop on our honeymoon and it was amazing. We stayed in a beach bungalow which was a GREAT value. We found that it was not worth it to stay in an overwater bungalow at the Intercontinental since they were not entirely over the water like the hotel we stayed in on Bora Bora. This hotel had dolphins and sea turtles which were fun to watch. We enjoyed the free amenities like the kayaks, snorkeling equipment, and the overwater hammock! It was a gorgeous location, the food was great, the Polynesian buffet and show was fun, and overall the people were extremely friendly. We loved our stay and highly suggest this location!

Spent a week in Moorea at ICH and spa. 3 days in a beach front cottage, 4 days in a garden cottage with pool. Meals were really good at the Shell. This is high end, excellent food and good entertainment. Staff at the hotel and restaurants were really good. We spent two nights in Tahiti at ICH and then a brief stay between planes after returning from Bora,Bora. Nightly entertainer,net was good, but once you've seen it, well. Had a gym was really nice except people kept coming in to get water. We never understood this as we received water everyday. At the restaurants you maybe charged for water. Take advantage of all the restaurants and nightly events. Water was really nice,pool was great. But our little piece of heaven at both locations was excellent. Not as private as we would have liked but nice just the same. Rent a car at the hotel 4 hrs is more than long enough to take a drive, pick some extras go to the look out, snap some beautiful pics on your short journey. Weather was great.

The setting is lovely and the property is very nice. The service is exceptional. The Concierge and Front Desk personnel were very attentive to our every request. We received assistance with transportation and tours. The snorkeling tour that takes you to swim with sharks and sting rays is outstanding and not far from the property. We especially enjoyed our dinner at The Shell restaurant where we celebrated our 35th anniversary.

We stayed here for two nights in the "over water" bungalow. This is not your typical bora Bora overwater bungalow but we had a deck to jump off of and a ladder to climb in and out. We had resident fish that seemed to stay under us day after day. Additionally we saw a black tip shark cruise by as we were enjoying a drink on the deck. Top notch resort in moorea, there is a dolphin center where you can walk through and see the dolphins playing (this seems to be more for making money) as well as a sea turtle sanctuary (seems more about helping turtles). We walked through both on our way to the main beach and restaurants which was a pretty cool/scenic walk! I would highly recommend, they also helped us arrange for taxis and called last minute excursions. Don't expect to check in early, while they provided a changing/shower room for us so we could lounge around the pool/beach or in our case go on a whale excursion. We didn't get our room until around 15:00 which is when they say check in time begins and frankly they was fine.

We stayed 5 nights and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was perfect. We had traveled a long way to be there, so were thrilled at how stunning the resort was. From the spacious beach bungalow with stunning views of spectacular sunsets, to the exceptional and personal service no matter where we were on the resort (from the beach, eating or drinking out, it was 5* at its best! The beach and the tropical surroundings were idyllic! It was paradise in paradise! One wakes up in the morning- opens the curtains and WOW ! Paradise is on display ! Our 2 children (age 12 & 2) absolutely loved to play with the fish, crabs, eels, turtles, sting rays. I cannot recommend this resort enough - it was the best holiday we have had since we had children!

We have just arrived at the hotel for our honeymoon and in the first morning we have just found out that there are just a few sunbeds for all the hotel guests. At the same time 70% of the sunbeds are empty with just a towel on it. We have asked the hotel and the answer has been that it works like can leave the towel the whole day and reserve the sunbed. This is something that I have seen in other hotels but never at this price and with this lack of concern from the hotel staff. They just don't care at all. Needless to say tomorrow we will wake up early and leave a pair of towels in a pair of sunbeds and go back to sleep. Not something I would like to do in my honeymoon but if the hotel staff allows this practice we will need to adapt. Hopefully my opinion will change during the 5 days we will spend here but for the time being we can tell that this is not a 5 star hotel but for the price.

My sister and I were visiting Moorea and we just came at the Intercontinental to have a drink and visit the turtle hospital. It was very nice, the hotels staff helped us even though we were not hotel clients, the drinks were good and the hotel and surrounding area is beautiful!

I was excited to spend time at this hotel after visiting the InterContinental and Thalasso Spa In Bora Bora as I was hoping for a similar experience. THE beach area is small and share space with a small marina where boats dock for dropping off guests, lagoon tours, snorkeling and scuba and lots of jet skis. As a result the water is murky and not that clear. Also the beach area is small. We arrived around 10:30 and there were only a few lounge chairs left. We arrived from the Paul Guaguin Cruise ship with a day pass. After trying to make the beach work we went up to the pool around 11:30 and there were no chairs by the pool. We asked a staff person to find us some but he said none were available but should open up soon. I was able to find one after about 1/2 hour. Once settled, the pool was very nice and relaxing! Also ate at the restaurant, the food was good and the service was great. I would likely not do this excursion again from the ship to this beach. The public beach, which we visited later, was nicer. I cannot rate the rooms but they had a mix of regular hotel rooms and bungalows over the water.

My adult daughter and I stayed at the Intercontinental for 3 nights (overwater bungalow) before a cruise. The property is expansive and lovely. The bungalow was lovely, clean, and right on the lagoon. The dolphins were on the other side of our room. I would have been upset if I had paid for a dolphin experience... 5 or 6 people walk in waist deep and get to pet the dolphin and hear facts. Not interactive. There is also a turtle rescue sanctuary on the property which is great! Finding a lounge chair on the beach proved to be a challenge as so many people were vying for them. In addition to hotel guests, they offer day trip to folks from the cruise ships. Personnel and service were the highlights for sure! Dining was a letdown for a hotel of this class. That's the reason I can't give 5 stars to this hotel.

My wife and I were at the resort at the end on June 2017. From Bruno checking us in at the front desk to swimming with the dolphins on day 2, the trip was like staying in paradise. Our afternoons and evenings were spent on the beach were had dinner on the beach one evening. With the courtesy ofthe staff and the way we treated at all times we were at the resort, I have to thank a few employees. Mind you, I know I haved missed a few! Thanks again to Bruno, Celine, Moe and Jonathanand all the others for making this a vacation we will never forget. Great job to the entire staff at the ICG Moorea resort and Spa. Thanks again.
