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:   A really great resort. We were lucky as it is down season in January so not a lot of people around. We booked the Premium Over water bungalow and loved it. However the water off our deck was on the shallow side and was really low during low tides...We did use the Avis on site to rent a car which costed more than at the pier but convenience was the reason. Daily free kayaks for an 1 he was fun.

Review:   The staff does a good job balancing the diverse range of clientele from different countries. The expansive grounds are beautiful, more enjoyable than ptoperty in Tahiti. My partner and I were visiting for an adventure trip while many USA couples looked to be on honeymoon. Many islanders traveling a short distance brought children.

Review:   Very nice 4 star property with great lagoon. Has turtles and dolphins. Cleanliness above average but had ant and smell problems in bungalow. Service however is extremely slow. Much slower than even island time. 2 stars for poor service. Must be very patient if you decide to stay here. Overall 3 star property.

Review:   Very high scale place and way too big to call it a vacation resort. The people that wirk there aren't that friendly. They do have the best activities to take advantage of especially the dolphin .ca her and turtle aquarium.
