Perfect location. No need to stay anywhere else on Moorea.

Simply an amazing place you need to stay in a overwinter beach bungalow it is well worth the extra

Location, affordability, makes this property the number one choice when staying in Moorea. If you’re going to go to a Moorea it is an absolute that you spend time in a overwater beach bungalow it even has a glass window on the floor. Note if you are not used to how the French operate be patient and polite. But the management is always right on top of any concerns you may have. I cannot praise the management any higher for their customer service I would definitely go back here again and again and again it actually makes me sad to have to promote this place I would prefer that would stay a quiet secret I cannot praise the management any higher for their customer service I would definitely go back here again and again and again it actually makes me sad to have to promote this place I would prefer that it would stay a quiet secret

Thanks. I had a great staying with excellent services. I think the food should be little cheaper

Orbitz lied to me, when i originally booked my trip through orbitz i was told by orbitz that my package included a meal plan at the resort (i even taped the orbitz sales person tell me my package came with meal plan) later on the resort told me it did not. I had no choice but to pay for the meal plan. Orbitz also missguided me on the check baggage allowance. On my first two planes American airlines from JFK to LAX and Air Tahiti Nui from LAX to Faaa i was told i was allowed 2 checked bags, one carry on & personal item per person but on third connecting flight from papeete to moorea by Air tahiti i was charged $50 for my carry on and then another $50 on my way back from Moorea to papeete there was nothing i could do but pay it. I travel frequently and will never make travel arrangements using orbitz again and will tell my friends the same . The resort in Moorea had nothing to do with they were fabulous . We plan on going again but never through orbitz.

I've stayed at several resorts in the past and this resort ranks up at the top. It is a smaller resort but that allows the staff to get to know you. If there was anything we needed during our stay, it was quickly addressed (i.e. new coffee pot at 3:00 am...we were struggling with the time change..lol). Our room was always clean and freshened and lovely items left each day. Would definitely recommend staying here and hope to go back soon.

Nice hotel, close to the sea but covered with coral so it was hard to swim out.

This was the best hotel experience my wife and I have ever had. From the moment we walked in they greeted us with a cool cloth and a glass of lemonade while we waited for our room to be ready. We got a tour of the grounds and were allowed to use the pool while waiting. The overwater bungalo was absolutely breathtaking. There were paddle board, kayaks, and snorkel equipment available at no extra cost. The grounds were always kept clean and there is a pearl store on site that we purchased a beautiful pendant for my wife. They also gave directions to shopping center and groceries store within 5 min walking. My only regret is not booking to stay here longer. Excellent place to stay. We will definitely be back!

Good property very relaxing on lagoon with lot of good activities

I was worried that the lower prices they offer would be an indicator, but our stay was excellent, despite a bad wind storm.

This resort is absolutely beautiful and very quiet. It is not a big resort at all and so everything is very accessible. It is very quiet and very peaceful if that's the kind of place you are interested in going to. There is basically no nightlife and there is just one restaurant and one bar on the premise. Cocktails at the bar are pretty expensive unless its happy hour which was 5-7pm every night. Otherwise, a cocktail would cost about $16 each which added up quickly. My husband and I made the decision to walk to a supermarket that was 5 minutes away and get some snacks and alcohol which came out to be much cheaper. We just mixed drinks in our room and took them by the pool which was never an issue.

Staff very rood ,very very dirty and full of roaches, and they saw it and would not do anything about it. We were not the 0nly ones complaing there were others and they did nothing . Dr.Cynthia Wilson

We got the garden room with the plunge pool. Perfect since we wanted some privacy and relax in t he comfort of our room. Lovely well kept grounds, friendly staff, convenient to shopping, all amenities you need.

Stayed in an over the water bungalow which was great except for the fact that our unit faced the beach bungalows, not the open water. The interior of the unit was a very pleasant surprise. Very well appointed, large, modern, and had a huge bathroom.The deck was rather small, and the water around the unit was very shallow and frequently filled with coral debris. The beach in front of the beach bungalows was designated exclusively for their use and the only other beach was small and looked out onto a line of over the water bungalows. The only place to see the sunset was on the platform designated to enter the water. All of the units were close to each other, so any idea of privacy should be abandoned. The location of the hotel was great as there were a number of stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. There were many families with children when we were there, so the pool area was a little hectic.. They had free use of kayaks, singles and doubles, paddle boards and snorkeling equipment.
