We had a fabulous stay here. More boutique than the large properties like the Hilton, intercontinental etc. we would stay here again BUT the rooms are getting tired and do need a refurb. No complaints. Food and drinks consistently good. The compulsory NYE dinner although huge $$$$$ was actually almost worth the money. If they had included a bottle of wine and water to each table it would have been perfect.

The room and pool were great.The activity desk was good and very helpful in organising activities for you.What lets this resort down is the cocktail and food menu very limited and expensive.The cultural night buffet was awful.

Staff were very unhelpful and not friendly. Been traveling for 4 weeks in Tahiti and this was our last stop and bitterly disappointed in the staff who couldn’t give me an answer to my question nor followed up. Gave them 3 days to answer my question about refund for a person who was a late cancellation so had already paid breakfast and extra person charge of $100 AUD a night for our stay. Each person I asked said asked tomorrow till eventually spoke to a manager who promised an answer before check out but never happened. Paid $1400 AUD for over water bungalow with no internet the whole stay which each staff member I spoke to saying it would be fixed tomorrow but it never was. No compensation what so ever offered nor apology. On arrive not even a bottle of water was in our $1400 a night room though ever other hotel we stayed at did at least that if not more. Very disappointing and would not recommend which is a real shame seeing its great location and amazing coral gardens

Dear Sir, Madam, Thank you for your comment. We are really sorry to read that your stay with us didn’t reach your expectations. There was obviously a lack of communication and follow up. We are having internet issues but our IT team is working on it. It should had been fixed quickly but the issues were unfortunately bigger than originally evaluated. As for the bottle of water, each hotel has its own policy but we are working on new standards to put a complimentary bottle of water in each overwater bungalow. We are sorry that you couldn’t benefit of it during your stay. We can only apologize for the disappointments you experienced during your stay but can guarantee you that it does not reflect the service we want to give to our guests and on which we are working every day. Your comment will be discussed with all involved services and we will use it to improve ourselves and make sure that doesn’t happen again in the future. Still, we hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again in a near future to show you that we took all your remarks seriously and into consideration.

We stayed in an over the water bungalow! It was stunning and worth the money! Just a tip it can get windy so if you want a bit of quiet book and inside row over water bungalow. However if you want to save half the money a beach bungalow is just as good.

Location was good

Disappointed with the little things that make your stay enjoyable. Like a no complimentary bottle of water to get you started. For what we paid for a beachfront chalet I would have expected one each day. Breakfasts were very boring and I thought poorly presented. Staff were very friendly and helpful when I needed to scan an email urgent papers home.

Overwater Bungalows a must!

Moorea was an amazing place so beautiful and peaceful but full of things to do if you want activities. The Manava is fantastic great people, a nice pool and excellent restaurant. We stayed in the premium overwater bungalow - Wow! Being able to swim straight off your own balcony is an experience. If you're travelling from NZ remember to take an adapter. Also book a massage if you can.
