Review:   Recommended for: Families, couples

Pros: Very cool layout, with the bungalows scattered across a number of little islands. Dolphin experience is here, in the middle of the resort--pretty amazing. Also be sure to check out the turtles. Fantastic Polynesian buffet several nights a week. The range of choices is incredible, and the quality and flavors are top-notch. We were there with 2 10 year old kids and an 8 year old, and they all found tons of things they loved. The Top Dive dive operation on Moorea is based at this resort, which is super convenient if you're a diver. Totally reasonable dive rates too, less than you'd pay in Hawaii. There's a spot in the lagoon maybe 1000 yards from the resort where sting rays and blacktip reef sharks hang out. Tour boats and jet ski groups come there each day to swim with the sharks and rays. Totally safe for kids, but very exciting...you'll see 20 sharks and 4-5 rays around you at the same time.

Cons: Somehow doesn't look as Polynesian to me as some of the other resorts, I think mostly just due to the color of the bungalows. But this is pretty minor! The interiors of the bungalows are really nice, AC works really well, and there's lots of space around the bungalows so you have some privacy and quiet.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Such a magical place. Great staff and amenities. My only knock is the food prices but if you're staying here you may not care about that. Over water bungalows are amazing and worth it.

Review:   The food is actually kind of garbage here, for how much you pay. Intercontinental should invest more into staff and food than stupid pearl shops that are never open.

Review:   Stayed in a fully overwater bungalow. Was able to snorkel right off the porch and see fish, sharks, and turtles. Restaurants are pricey and drinks are expensive but there are other decent restaurants around that you can venture to.

Review:   Great hotel. Free Kaiaks and stand up paddle for 1 hour. Crossing the road you can have lunch and dinner at the Holy steakhouse. Or buy stuff on the grocery store. Everything is too expensive, from drinks to meals in the hotel.
