This hotel is not worth the expense! While our room was veey nice, the other aspects of the stay were not. Fare Nui restaraunt was terrible! The menue was very limited and the food when served was ovcer cooked and very salty.
The spa is a joke. No facilities - ever been to a spa with no shower? Plus the massage was terrible.
Would never go back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AggieHoneymooner Going back for our Anniversary
We had a wonderful honeymoon stay at the Intercontinental in Moorea! We definitely want to return for our anniversary in a few years. Staff was excellent. Concierge was always very helpful in helping us plan our activities and we did everything through them.
My husband had scuba dived before, but I never have until Moorea. The top dive team at the hotel was excellent too. I was pretty nervous going down there, but they did a great job putting me at ease and taking care of us underwater. I am definitely hooked on scuba diving and want to get my certification.
Rooms were very nice. (#521) The location of the room was right at a coral reef and we had an excellent view of sea life. We loved sitting on our porch at night watching black tip sharks swim in the light. We are definitely requesting the same room too when we go back.
I only have one small criticism about the hotel. My husband and I got massages there. The ladies were excellent and the massage itself was fantastic, but both of us thought the tables where we placed our heads were uncomfortable. We would both get massages there again as long as there were different tables.
Overall, a wonderful place to honeymoon and we are looking forward to our return someday!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awwong First experience, would come back!
A great experience with nice a bungalow. It was nice being right off the lagoon side facing the sunset.
One of our pillows had a crusty stain on it, but otherwise, the room was kept clean and the amenities were nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nicolas987 disapointed by the food
Hotel is wonderfull. Staff is very good.
BUT we have been very very disapointed by both restaurant (frozen bad quality french fries, meat too cooked...).
Another bas point is the fitness area where several machines were out of order and where there is no sauna and not even a shower !

Our stay at the Intercontinental exceeded expectations at every level. The hotel lobby and reception area was breathtaking. Each member of the hotel staff was cordial, knowledgeable, and eager to serve. The rooms and furnishings were stylish, clean, and accommodating to our every need. The setting, of course, was magnificent and the surroundings impressive. We pre-paid for the breakfast buffet every morning of our stay and were delighted with the quality and variety of fruits, breads, and breakfast foods. Restaurant service was pleasant and unhurried, as we have come to expect in the culture of French Polynesia. We would not hesitate to re-book if we return to Moorea. Thank you for playing a part in making our trip unforgettable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Danny111 Nice resort, but say goodbye to the contents of your wallet.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here. However, the food & the activities available through the hotel were what we considered very expensive.
Our over-water bungalow was great. To be able to go out on the deck at any time & look in the water and see fish & even sharks swim by, was very nice.
One of the main reasons we went to Moorea, & stayed in this resort, was to go snorkelling. What we found was, the options to do this were fairly limited. Being qualified divers, & having snorkelled on the east & west coasts of Australia, & the Galapagos Islands, I have to say we were disappointed with what we found here. Asking at the marine activities centre, & the dive centre at the resort did not help.
We were just given the same options of where to snorkel. ( which we had already done). We were sure ther must have been better options somewhere, but even after offering to pay to be taken somewhere by boat, no-one cared to cater for us.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by d2swe Great location shame about the service!
We stayed for 8 nights in a garden room with private pool. We were excited by the prospect of a holiday in what we hoped would be paradise. On a positive the room was very comfortable, well appointed and the island of Moorea is stunning.
On the negative, and might I say how very sad it is that anyone should have to report such a thing whilst endeavoring to have a relaxing holiday. Quite a few of the staff are simply not into it, some give the impression of simply going through the motions and I'd suggest that someone needs to urgently re-introduce an ethos of putting the customer first. The team are what make a place and the guests are that which keep those same team members in gainful employ! I could recount numerous interactions that were simply not good enough, regrettably some team members were out and out rude. The sketchy service levels and price for that which is offered is completely disproportionate to the quality and standard of that which is served. Breakfast was distinctly average and we found the evening meal to be a total hit and miss affair, one night ok the next average to poor.
I would never ever go back and I can think of places in the same general pacific vicinity that offer better service, better food and better value generally.
To provide balance, there are some great restaurants way out of the hotel complex although you will need to hire a car, we had some lovely evenings out- thank heavens! The supermarket 20 minutes walk away does great lunch rolls and basic staple items can be sourced at a reasonable rate.
In summary, this could and should have been a much, much better experience!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lewieg Fantastic resort
Celebrated our honeymoon in an overwater bungalow. Excellent location and snorkelling. Food was great quality. Only thing that could be improved would be gluten-free range of options for meals as there are really non at present and staff did not seem to understand the dietary requirement very well which made things a bit hard for my wife who is gluten intolerant. However this is a very tidy and well run resort. No complaints and would gladly return. Just remember to vist the local dairy or supermarket for bottled water if you are not game to drink out of the tap (not recommended apparently), this will save $$$ and prevent dehydration in the hot and thirsty weather!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DDLeeC Comfortable bed & great service!
We spent our honeymoon here last week in an overwater bungalow & Wow is all I can say. We arrived & received a fresh fruity drink & cool face cloth that smelled heavenly after a long trip. We upgraded to a sunset facing bungalow & had to wait a while but utilized the transition room & headed to the pool. It was well worth it. The sunsets didn't disappoint. The ice machine was broken way out there by our hut but a phone call brought room service promptly. The staff were very accommodating & got to know us & would always greet us & offer us a ride out to our bungalow which was nice when our hands were full after shopping for the day! The bed was very comfortable & the bathroom was nice & large. The breakfast buffet was amazing with a wide array of foods to choose from. We were sad to have to leave but when it was time we called for a porter to pick us & our luggage up. A little time had passed & no porter, then we got a phone call from the front desk that he was outside our hut but we had forgotten to take the Do Not Disturb sign off so he wouldn't even knock on our door. Oops! But that was our fault. We can not wait to go back!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by newleywed Great hotel for honeymoon
We stayed at the hotel for our honeymoon and enjoyed all the amenities. The breakfast buffett was comprehensive and delicious. The activities coordinators were nice to work with us on our various adventures. The hotel had two bars, but only the pool bar was in operation the four days we stayed. I'm not sure why the lobby bar was not open. Our bungalow faced the ocean and was ones farthest from the lagoon. We loved the view, although we had quite a lot of water sports traffic and were unable to swim or float in the water for all the times we got waked. We recommend the property, especially for being close to some cool restaurants, a market across the street, and the lagoonarium.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mich4829250 Awesome bungalows, beautiful scenery
We stayed at the Intercontinental for just under a week and had the most amazing time. The room (bungalow) was excellently furnished, and the scenery was unbelievable. The staff were also super friendly (yet not annoyingly so), and were happy to help with any request. Better TV services would be appreciated (not much English, and only analogue signals) - we did a lot of activities during the day but it would have been great to watch some television later in the evening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IvyK65 A happy birthday vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the moment we arrived. The hospitality shown by the staff was outstanding. We loved the warm & inviting ambience of the hotel. The grounds and scenery are breathtaking. Sorry to say, we were not impressed with the food quality or dining selections for breakfast and dinner. Another disappointment was the gym room. There weren't enough machines for everyone. The ones that were there were old and worn. Also there wasn't any sanitizing wipes or adequate TV... We did, however enjoy staying in our bungalow. We had it all...The ocean, a private beach and our own mini swimming pool in our luxurious deck. The hotel surprised my husband and myself with the most awesome and delicious chocolate mouse cake for my birthday which was extra special.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paradisefound Wonderful experience
The Intercontinental resort and spa Moorea was very beautiful, has a friendly and helpful staff, and private bungalows. The bungalow wasnt facing into another bungalow in any direction, which I prefer. I do not like opening a window to see directly at your neighbor, and this resort is set up to avoid that uncomfortable view. The over water bungalow was so fun, we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling right off the deck. And an unexpected surprise, free upgrade from beach bungalow to overwater bungalow, so nice of them. I would highly recommend this resort and island for a very fun and relaxing stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ModelS Great Stay in Moorea
Had a great time at Moorea. We spent around 6 days at the resort and absolutely loved it. The location is really nice, with many activities rather close to the resort. The resort itself has many activities and evening shows to keep everyone entertained. We had kids and they loved to snorkel, swim at the beach and at the pool. The food was really nice in the restaurants on the property and therefore didn't venture out to any other local restaurant. We had an overwater bungalow and that was nice since we could just get down into the lagoon from there.
Would love to come back to this place some day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lewis1948 Superb hotel
We stayed at this property for probably the last 3-4 times in Moorea.
Staff, as in Tahiti, are superb and will go out of their way for you.
The swimming and kayaking in the lagoon is superb. The swimming pool is a bit small compared with Tahiti but still large enough.
3 small criticisms,: the size of the room safe is too small, difficult to put phones, wallets, mini ipad, kobo etc in. Larger sizes please as per Tahiti., the noise of the airconditioning is excessive, no easy control, upgrade to Tahiti standards please. Finally the lack of ramps, steps everywhere!!! Recovering from a knee replacement certainly gave me plenty of walking exercise., albeit slowly going up and down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WhoFan Great setting and membership pays off!
We were upgraded to an over water bungalow for the 5 night stay as part of being in the Ambassador club. That card paid for itself with that upgrade.
Great room, good breakfast and nice grounds. The only down side was having to pay $60 US for a $10 bottle of Pepe Lopez Tequila as there was none at the nearby store. At least I bargained down from $90... Overall a great stay.
Tip; You can use a kayak and paddle out to where the tour groups do the shark and ray feeding just off shore. Bring snorkel equipment and have them tie a rope to the kayak so you can tie it to the buoys while you get in the water with the groups. A huge Moray eel also at this location.
