Polinesia is the paradise of the world, Monrea is part of it, a little Atoll on the emerald water of the ocean,.

The Intercontinental is one of the best luxury hotel in the world and here it reachs the most hight level of service and expectation.

Delicious Polinesian traditional food and dance.

The bungalow overwater offer you the most romantic moment of your life.

Wake up in the morning on the middle of the emerald ocean is just a dream that came true.

Hope everybody once on the life will have the opportunity to be guess in this marvelous place.

Abuse in plain sight

The Intercontinental was a lovely hotel, but my experience was darkly shadowed by the Dolphin Center. The animals were in captivity in such a tiny space. They were bored, sad, and lethargic. They did not have enough space, and the Center was clearly run for profit. I could not believe how many tourists ignorantly took selfies with them, but did not notice the obvious suffering in front of them (I suspect that people think all dolphins are perpetually happy because of the "smile" their faces naturally make, but these dolphins were not.)

If you care about animals, I would boycott the hotel because of the depressing and awful conditions the dolphins were kept in. There are many opportunities to see the dolphins in the wild around French Polynesia, free as they should be. I wrote to the hotel and notified them I will not stay at any Intercontinental hotel again worldwide until this Center is closed. I heard other guests also say that their stay at the Hotel was darkened because of the Center, even if many people ignorantly were focused only on getting a good picture with them to send to friends. It was suffering for $$$.

Average Resort in Nice Area of Moorea

Upon arrival, we had to wait to check into our room but was fine. We dined by the pool in the meantime and were constantly pestered by the feral chickens roaming the restaurant (the staff made no attempt to move them on). The food was actually quite good (a skirt steak dish and shrimp dish).

We stayed in a small cabin on the inner lagoon of the hotel. The cabin was spacious with a large bathroom and bedroom and living room. The porch faced out to the lagoon but the beach was nothing but rocks and no sand. Really hard on the feet. When I went to bed, I pulled back the mattress cover by mistake and the bed was covered in sand and had mysterious brown stains which were disgusting. Apparently they only change the bottom sheet for new guests. Also the air conditioning was spotty at best.

The pool was fine but quite crowded with children and not a place to sit. The pool bar service was spotty at best and offered drinks with practically no alcohol. The hotel also offered kayaks and other water equipment provided by a surly man. The staff at this hotel seemed very unhappy and were not friendly to the guests.

The one exception was the exceptional concierge Josiane. She really was friendly and helpful with all and helped arrange activities for us. The hotel has some sort of feud with some of the local restaurants so they cannot reserve all restaurants on the island (perhaps only the ones who give some sort of percentage to the hotel).

The over water bungalows were undergoing renovation at the time. This hotel is an average resort for Moorea and I think is very friendly for families with children but not so much for couples. The price is affordable but not indicative of the Intercontinental hotels overall. I would try another resort if returning to the area.

Beautiful views, wonderful food

We arrived at the hotel after a magical day swimming with sharks and stingrays. And the day only got better.

The front desk staff member was very friendly, thanked us for our loyalty to the IHG brand, poured us a welcome drink, and informed us that we had been upgraded to a premium overwater bungalow.

After my very poor experiences at a neighboring hotel of a competing brand, I was almost disoriented by the impeccable hospitality of the InterContinental Moorea.

We visited the turtle sanctuary on way to our room and smiled as a baby turtle waved at us. (Technically, he was swimming, but in paradise, baby turtles wave hello to you as they swim.) We watched the sunset from our deck as beautiful angelfish swam in the coral below.

While the breakfast buffet had fewer choices and less local cuisine than at the aforementioned neighboring property, the food here at the InterContinental was very good. The Fare Hana Restaurant was also the most vegetarian-friendly restaurant that we found on Moorea. (The vegetarian menu isn't posted, but there is a full vegetarian available once you are seated.)

Great Place to Relax

We spent 4 enjoyable nights at the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa. The rooms are clean, quiet and spacious. We stayed in a traditional hotel room, not the partial overwater bungalows that they also offer. The staff is helpful. They offer free use of snorkel gear and kayaks. The grounds have a lot of amenities, two restaurants, a small fitness center, a helpful concierge, a dolphin center and a turtle rehabilitation center.

The breakfast buffet (included with room) had plenty of variety to offer and the food was high quality. We ate a lunch and dinner at the hotel's less formal restaurant (one night was out under an umbrella). The fish dishes we ordered (Tuna/Mahi Mahi in vanilla sauce!) were very tasty.

They offer a special luau dinner twice a week. We didn't go because it seemed kind of pricy, but we watched part of the show from the sidelines for awhile one night. It seemed like your typical luau performance.

At this point the dolphin center is closed, so you can't interact with the dolphins, but you can still see them swimming around. There is a free mini-presentation by one of the turtle rehabilitation volunteers each morning at 10 am when they feed the turtles. It's a quick 10 minutes, but interesting.

The property has its own lagoon area that you can swim and exercise in. It was really fun exploring the property via kayak (even if we couldn't keep the kayak going straight).

The fitness center is not large, 1 elliptical, 1 stationary bike, 1 treadmill, 1 rowing machine, and some free weights. We went early in the morning. Sometimes we had to wait a little while and other days we were the only ones in there.

I would stay there again if I ever went back to Moorea.
