- The hotel staff is friendly, professional and very welcoming.
- Our overwater bungalow had an indoor/outdoor shower, which was a super fun feature.
- The snorkeling directly off our overwater bungalow was epic, and there are a couple of spots across the resort where the snorkeling is equally amazing. There wasn’t much boat traffic near the Sofitel, which made it feel like a really safe place to be in the water.
- The hotel hosts a traditional dance show every night, and once per week they pull out all the stops with incredible fire dancing.
- The service in the restaurant was hit-or-miss. We expected that service in French Polynesia might sometimes be slow, but once or twice the waitstaff forgot about us entirely.
- The windows in our bungalow didn’t close completely, so mosquitoes and lizards ventured into our room at night. This is pretty typical of an island resort, but we were a bit disappointed to be bothered by mosquitoes (especially with Zika all over the news).
- Our bungalow had white curtains, which did very little to block the sunlight—although on the plus side, we were woken up by some stunning sunrises.
- Moorea is very very expensive (even though it’s not as expensive as Bora Bora). Budget at least $100 USD per day for food and drinks.
- The Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora is the best hotel on the island, especially if you plan on snorkeling.
I’ve seen you stayed at several OWB hotels, which was your favorite?

We absolutely loved our renovated bungalow at the Hilton Bora Bora, which is now called the Conrad. Bora Bora truly is paradise!
