We stayed in a First Floor Apartment for 5 nights in October 2019. We were very happy with our room and services provided. We enjoyed having a kitchen, felt it was spacious and also found it very quiet. We hired a car for the time we were there. It was great value for money. We would highly recommended to others.

We were in French Polynesia for 3 weeks, this was the best accommodation we had, including a stay at The Intercontinental. It was clean, the staff were so friendly and welcoming, and our bungalow was spacious, clean and had the most perfect view. We are a same sex couple on our honeymoon and we were made to feel very welcome. For those reviewers complaining about mosquitos, I’m not sure what they expected from a tropical/jungle island :) We had deet, and slept under a net we brought with us. So fare no bites. One of the most spectacular places we’ve ever stayed, and we‘ really travelled extensively.

Very poor service. A/C did not work first night and no instructions in unit on what to do or who to contact. Dryer on 2nd day and oven on 3rd day didn't work. Front desk kept insisting instructions were in unit, but when they came to check they were missing. Weird layout with commode attached to main room and shower separately in bedroom. Owners trying to be cheap. No hand towels or any towels in bathroom with commode. No paper products anywhere in unit. Small coffee maker but absolutely no supplies. Had to pay a deposit for beach towels and they would not exchange them when they were wet. Roosters crowing loudly outside of unit all night. Overall a very poor experience for what could have been a nice unit in a good location.

Very modern and styly apartments. Great value for $$$. Apartment has everything in it to make your stay easy. Sunset beach the best beach on the island 1min walk with great swimming and tanning to be had. Supermarkets, Resturants and other villages close by. Highly reccomend these apartments. We will definatly be going back to stay here

We had a garden bungalow for a few nights, and we all had a good time. Bungalows are decently furnished, modern and clean. We ended up cooking most times in the bungalow which comes with all things needed. Best of all is the beach and water activities, crystal clear water and nice coral garden not far.

Nice apartment. We loved our stay here. Food price in the nearby restaurants is from 1300 to 3000 local. We had a steak and cola for 1500. And chicken and salat for 1300 Boat rental 10000 for 4 h. And 5 min sailing is a good snorkelling spot with manta and sharks.

If you come here, try and book a beach front bungalow. While there are some short comings such as minimal AC, bugs and no pool, the price makes up for such inconveniences. We found the beach front bungalow to be a solid value.

We stayed here on our honeymoon April 2019 after deliberating whether to stay self-contained or at the intercontinental. We were really pleased with our choice! Moorea Sunset Beach was a beautiful location and a cost-saving option too. Some key points: - super friendly staff who are able to assist with booking tours, restaurants or vehicles. They take lunch between 1-2pm and are closed during this time - shops are within walking distance both left and right outside the property (left is closer, right has an ATM) - facilities in the beach-front room included oven, stove, microwave and fridge, the shops mentioned nearby are small but you can pick up goods for breakfast, lunch and dinner including meat and frozen goods - one of the best beaches in the area, with good snorkeling directly out the front of Les Tips restaurant (adjoining beach) and really good snorkeling out the front of Coco Beach which you can access via kayak - amazing sunsets, as per the name - very family friendly vibe which may not be everyone’s cup of tea but was fine by us - good restaurant options in walking distance to the right - Les Tips serves take away baguettes for 550 if you’re after something cheap. They do not offer WiFi We would definitely return.

When I booked this place I wasn't sure based on the mixed reviews I read and the relatively low cost. But it turned out to be much better than expected. We had a room on the upper floor. It's actually more than a room: a bedroom, a living area, a kitchenette with a full sized fridge, lots of dishes, microwave, a cooking range, etc. Although the A/C is only for the bedroom, if you keep the bedroom door open, it's powerful enough to cool the entire apartment down. The bed is comfortable. The decor is pleasing. The bathroom is clean and spacious. It comes with a washer & dryer. There's also a long-private balcony with a dining set. There are stores in the little village about 10-15 mins walk away. And many more farther away. We ate big, healthy breakfasts every morning at the apartment with the provisions we got from the stores. There's also a food truck parked right by the reception where they serve lunch and dinner most days of the week. They're relatively cheap compared to restaurants nearby. Someone earlier commented on the WiFi being bad. While you can't expect 100Mbps speeds at hotels, in my experience the speed we got here was more than acceptable. The best part about the hotel is that it's right on the beach and next to Les Tipaniers from where you can rent kayaks, boats, etc. I'm usually very stingy with my rating system. I give this 5 stars, not because it's perfect, but because for the price, the amenities and locations, it's underrated.

The staff at reception were always helpful and friendly. I arrived early as I had a car hire for the first few days of my stay and I drove past so thought it would be handy to leave my luggage. I didn’t expect to be able to check in but I thought I would try and the room was ready. The apartment I had was 31 and it was awesome didn’t hear any traffic it had good sized bedroom, bathroom, (no bath) separate toilet, washing machine and dryer, kitchen and lounge area and a terrific deck/patio that had two sun loungers and a table and 7 chairs and a loft with a double bed. Air conditioner in the main bedroom and fan in the lounge and loft. I didn’t use the kitchen apart from cutlery but I don’t think there were many cooking utensils like tongs , spatula etc. oven gloves. something that I think may be lacking is maybe a bbq. You can also get beach towel at reception with a deposit to your room. The beach is great a little shallow but you can walk out to the deeper parts. A few coconut trees for shade and around 2.30pm shade from a large tree. Something that would be great is a hire company to rent loungers by the beach. The weekends seemed busy I guess from the few Résidence apartments in the complex visiting for the weekend. There is two hire companies on the beach one that rents out boats (no licence needed) and one that I think did scuba diving, kayak etc. I hired a kayak for 500 for one hour and went out to the area where you can swim with the rays and sharks. It was rather windy when I kayaked out so a big hard going I wanted to take more photos as I went to that area the day before on a tour. Best to go early in the AM before the breeze. When I checked in they said the room would be cleaned once while I was there but it wasn’t (8 nights) so I guess you have to tell them when you want it cleaned (no big deal for me as I tidy anyway). It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the local village with a few restaurants, petrol station, pearl shops, supermarket etc. there is an ATM also but I couldn’t get cash out each time I tried. There are few few chickens, roosters, dogs and cats around but they didn’t bother me. The new food truck which opened on Wednesday just in the car park out the front near reception is a great idea. Half a chicken 900 and you could get four potatoes for 450. Fries 400 (although no fries on opening as the fryer didn’t seem to want to work). Also had different types of burgers (fish, beef and chicken). They are open from Wednesday to Sunday 11am-1.30pm and 5pm-9pm. I loved my stay here I thought the location was good for me and I liked the size of the apartment it would be Terrific for families as well due to the kitchen facilities and the beach is calm for kids. Tahiti was a bucket list tick for me and it didn’t disappoint. I hope to come back soon.
