How to Get There
Overwater bungalows are the best as they are further out in the water than any others we saw on Moorea. Large rooms, glass in the floor to view fish, and patio decks that allow you to step into the reef directly from your unit. Loved the breakfast and bar food for lunch/dinner. You can't go wrong - perfect island, perfect location. Suggest asking for furthest out overwater bungalow.
We spent 3 nights in an Overwater Bungalow at the Hilton Moorea Resort & Spa. It was wonderful, beautiful views, great snorkelling, and good entertainment and restaurants. The service was great and friendly and we would definitely go back. We did some sightseeing on the island as well and it was a lush tropical paradise.
Our Travel Agent was Carl Henderson and he specializes in French Polynesia and he got it all perfect. Great excursions and the perfect bungalow to meet our needs.
We paid for the Panoramic Overwater bungalow (top category so we would have unobstructed views). It is worth the extra money so you aren't just looking into another bungalow. I am attaching a map of the room layout. For west facing sunset view ask for a room on the 60 to 109 side. Amazing snorkeling right off the bungalows and lovely beach. The hotel is very quiet so if you want lots of people, happening bars and restaurants this is not for you. If you want romantic time then it is perfect.
My husband and I just returned from an milestone anniversary trip in French Polynesia and all I can say is: “WOW!” We started our trip at the Hilton in Moorea and then we went on to Bora Bora (see separate review for InterContinental Thalasso). We arrived at the Hilton around 10:00 AM and our room was not ready, but the front desk offered us a room to shower and change until our deluxe garden bungalow was ready. We put on our bathing suits and were able to relax at the pool for a few hours while we waited to check in. I thought this was great service! It was nice to be able to begin relaxing immediately.
Our deluxe garden bungalow was PERFECT! I have to give a shout out and thank you to Venture Tahiti…they booked the entire trip for us and made room recommendations which I couldn’t have been happier with! I never would have thought of a deluxe garden bungalow (the obvious choice seems overwater) but I loved it! The bungalow was very well appointed with a big, comfortable bed and all the amenities you would expect from a four/five star resort. The bathrooms were huge and the rain shower was great. We had a completely private plunge pool to ourselves, and we were within a short walk of the lagoon so getting to the beach to snorkel when we wanted to was very convenient. Because we did a special overwater bungalow with pool in Bora Bora at the Thalasso Resort, it was really nice to have something different for Moorea and to save the money there so we could splurge in Bora Bora.
The service continued to be amazing for our entire stay. The activities desk made arrangements for us to be picked up and dropped off to and from a local restaurant one night (Rudy’s was very good ) which was very convenient as we didn’t want to hassle with a rental car or scooter or anything. We received a free jeep tour from our travel agent as a booking gift and it was a great way to see the highlights of the island and the lookout point. Moorea is such a beautiful island and we got to explore plantations and a few breathtaking lookout points.
The food was good at the hotel and we ate dinner out a couple of times. We had breakfast included with our package which was nice because food prices in French Polynesia are quite high because everything is imported. The breakfast buffet was very well done, lots of fresh fruit and plenty of things to choose from. Most days we would go to the overwater bar and enjoy savory crepes for a late lunch or early dinner (we were usually full from breakfast) and watch the reef sharks and rays swim below. Going to the overwater crepe bar was usually our favorite part of the late day and early evening!
Snorkeling is excellent at the resort- much better than what we had in Bora Bora, but we knew that ahead of time thanks to the agent we booked through. The agent we used is a specialist in French Polynesia and certainly knew her stuff about the hotels and the islands. We had a hard time choosing between staying at the Moorea Hilton or the Moorea Sofitel. They both looked good and had various points that we liked. After a very long and helpful phone call with our travel agent comparing and contrasting the two hotels for us, we settled on the Hilton. I am glad we did because it seemed a very good fit for us. We might have liked the Sofitel too, but we definitely like the Hilton! This was a very expensive trip for us, and I while I like to do things on my own, I will just say that I found the advice of the travel agent we used to be very, very helpful.
The resort also gave us a bottle of champagne which was also a nice touch and our agent at Venture Tahiti sent us a bottle of wine which we appreciated. I would definitely recommend the Hilton Moorea resort for anyone visiting Moorea, and we are already planning a return trip in 2 years!
We loved our stay on Moorea.
We rented a car from the Airport in Tahiti (from Hertz) and took it over on the ferry with us. The hotel has free parking and we used the car everyday to explore the island and go out for lunch.
The Hilton was very nice and the staff very friendly. The Overwater bungalows were perfect and spacious and the house keepers kept them spotless with twice a day cleanings.
Positives: Breakfast was scrumptious and they had a vast selection of items available. (free for diamond members) The property was kept very clean. Free mini bar in OWB that was restocked daily with 2 beers, 4 sodas and large bottle of water, diamond members received 20% off at the Tapas bar and 15% off at the spa. Selections of movies available at the front desk for those rainy times. The Creperie food was more reasonable with a beautiful setting over the water. We did have a very delicious meal in the main dining room one of our nights.
Negatives: price of cocktails $18-$22. (Happy hour nightly, buy on get on, but only on rum drinks) The boards on the OWB decking need to be updated and replaced. Diamond member- No upgraded for us or late check out available. Buffet price ridiculous.
The hotel was being heavily renovated, including the pool, and we were aware of this going to the property. That being said, the resort wasn't very crowded which was nice. We did get some rain and high winds which are common in January but we did enjoying a couple nice days of sunshine. The snorkeling is amazing here. We would come back to this property next time we visit Moorea.
