Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort: the Good and the Not-So-Good

The good:

  • 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.

Reason 1 –  THE PEOPLE

The locals here have genuine smiles and are truly warm and welcoming.  Although the official language is French, we found that most people could converse in English (or at least enough to get by with us visitors) and didn’t seem to mind that we couldn’t speak a word of French. 260 mots de plus
