Recent guest reviews

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.

Moorea offers a lot of activities and the hotel activity desk can organize land or water excusions. Yes the little town at walking distance is an asset . What people like with us , is that guest don't feel to be traped in the hotel . We are very happy that you really enjoyed the over water bungalow unit . With the coral drop. Thanks for staying at the Manava Moorea we do hope that you will keep good memories for a long time. Sunny regards

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for sharing your comments . I should admit most of the islands of French Polynesia do not have night life . People here live with the sun . they wackup early and go to bed early . Also we found out that with the change of time zone people are eating early and are going to their bungalow early . When it is 9 Pm here it is already midnight in LAX and people are tired. Happy hour for 5Pm to 7 Pm is a good way of socialise with other. Concerning the price of drinks , they are standard in the hotel business. I do not want people to think that we are overpriced. In the meantime , we are very please that you enjoyed your stay , and be assured that we would like to have the pleasure to welcome you again one of thoses days. Sunny regards and thanks again .

Dear Madame W. We are really very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. This is very unfortunate and I present to you our sincere apologies. I also like to guaranty you, that we have regular and numerous treatments against insects. However I have to admit that we are in a tropical climate and it is impossible to guaranty the island bugs free. Sorry that your entomophobia did not make you appreciate the effort we made to accommodate you in another room and enjoy the complementary diner who was offered to you . Sunny regards . Alain D
