Beautiful holiday”

We stayed at Pearl Resort and Spa for 6 nights. Were were in a family room, duplex type. Plenty of space. Rooms were cleaned daily, althought at random times. Apart from CNN there were no English channels available so not alot of tv watching at night. Room was airconditioned and sometime we had to keep it on during the night. It occasionally made loud noises but no big deal. Beds were pretty comfortable. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Pool is the largest on the island and is child-friendly. Beach was cleaned all the time and the water was crystal clear. Lots of different fish can be seen by the bungalows so if you are into snorkeling you will enjoy it. Apart from breakfast we didnt eat the the restaurant. Prices were pretty high compared to some other vacation spots but it is French Polynesia. Maharepa is only few minutes walk from the resort and you can get some groceries from the local mini market. There is a great, cheap restaurant across the road from the resort. Many locals eat there. Not opened on Tuesdays and Wednesdays unfortunately. Room service was good and food prepared very quickly. The only minor thing thats lacking is some form of entertainment in the evening. Apart from Tahitian show there is no alot happening. Excursion to Lagoonarium was the highlight of our holiday. It is a must do. You can have it arranged by a lovely Japanese lady at the hotel in the main lobby. Overall a fabulous holiday. We would recommend it and would definitely return to Moorea Pearl Resort and Spa.

This place is Amazing!!!”

This was our second stay at the Manava hotel in Moorea and it was just as amazing as our first stay. We stayed in the garden bungalow with the private pool. From the friendly service of the bag runners to the front desk workers and pool boys the service was amazing! We also stayed there Wednesday night (August 21, for my birthday) and we got to see the show that they have by the pool and dining area. Food was unbelievable! Service was again amazing. The show was very entertaining and it was fun being brought up to dance with the dancers, thanks Maui. Overall it was an amazing experience twice for us. If we ever get a chance to go back to Moorea we will definitely be staying at the Manava again. Mauruuru Hotel Manava!!!

The Manava Bay Resort on Moorea is a great place. The facilities, food, and accommodations are all first class, and the people who work there are very friendly and helpful. The location is, I believe, the best of any of the major resorts on Moorea, as it is relatively close to theferry terminal, but far enough to afford privacy. There's a small village adjacent with restaurants, shopping, and banks. While at Manava Bay, we felt comfortable, cared for, and insulated from the everyday world. The over water bungalows are highly recommended. Neat!

Paradise!”

My husband has been promising to take me to Tahiti "one day" since I first met him. That was 40 years ago! This was our time. We did some searching to see where we would like to stay and Manava Beach Resort both had competitive pricing as well as great reviews. From the time we arrived we felt treated like celebrities....a cold cloth to cool the face and neck, a cold beverage, a comfortable chair to fulfill the check-in process! A tour of the resort then our bags delivered to our private bungalow. Fresh flowers were used about the living space to welcome us. We had our own personal fenced in yard that had loungers, table and chairs as well as a small pool all to ourselves. The bed was comfortable and bungalow was clean and spacious. We took this bungalow for two nights then moved to an over water bungalow for one night (just to check this off our bucket list). The room configuration was similar but instead of a "yard" we had a balcony overlooking the water. There is an infinit

We thoroughly enjoyed the Moorea Pearl Resort and Spa because it was friendly, not too big,well located and physically beautiful. Another large well known hotel we visited was too far spread out and lacked the intimate feeling of The M P. Rooms were well appointed and cleaned. The Beach Bungalow was sensational with a delightful deck, picturesquesu sunsets, and beach in front with extra longing chairs. The large tree which partly shades the pool was also beautiful.

Fantastic small beach hotel”

Loved Manava Beach Resort. It isn't huge and ostentatious like Hilton or Four Seasons, which is a plus for us. It's smaller with a great island ambience. We were upgraded to an over-the-water bungalow, which was delightful. Loved viewing colorful tropical fish in the coral just off the beach. The restaurants were OK, but there are a couple of great places nearby, and they pick you up and drop you off at the hotel. They are Rudy's and Mahogany. We would definitely go back to Manava if we ever make it back to French Polynesia.

Location/Rooms/Ambience

We spent a really enjoyable 3 plus days at the Moorea Pearl following a cruise. The location on the beach is wonderful and the hotel is within walking distance of the small village. Breakfast was great (and included) but otherwise the food and particular drinks were expensive as are most things in Polynesia. People are friendly and helpful; pool is beautiful, although the beach at the hotel is somewhat small; rooms were tropical. There are small restaurants in the area, good transportation can be arranged across the road. Even when it rains it's pleasant. Would definitely go again.

Amazing time”

My husband and I visited this beautiful place first week of July for our honeymoon. We stayed in a bungalow over the water and had a fantastic time and a great view. We did upgrade to the premium bungalows so we could admire the sunset from the deck of our room and we did not regret our decision. The room is very big and spacious and the snorkeling around is just amazing. We drove around the island and checked other hotels and were very happy with our resort. We thought that our hotel had the most beautiful pool setup, best waters for snorkeling due to the very deep portion by the bungalows and just the overall resort setup was more suited to our taste than the bigger resorts on the island. It is also very close to the grocery store and a bunch of very good restaurants. The breakfast was really good and we also had dinner a couple of times at the resort and we loved it. We can't wait to go there again, hopefully for one of our anniversaries. We also did one tour to feed the sharks. Our guide name is Mako and he also hosted a dinner one night and we went there as well. It was one of the best guides we ever had, very fun and the dinner at his house was fantastic. Beautiful island, beautiful people!

Not worth the price!”

We had just finished our vacation in Bora Bora, so riding on those expectations we booked a Premier Garden bungalow at Manava. Our hope was to get treated to even more royalty (assuming Moorea would be cheaper and more affordable as compared to Bora Bora), but the resort and the overall feel was not upto our expectations. The rooms could have been cleaner, the food at the restaurant better, and the general setup of the resort could have been less frugal. The people and staff were wonderful, its just when you compare with a "Bora Bora" or a "premium resort" experience, this just wasnt there. Also, their lagoon, albeit replete with fish, is pretty deep, so even though we didnt stay in the OW bungalows, these were nothing compared to what you get in Bora Bora or say an Intercontinental in Moorea.

over water bungalow, beach, pool”

We stayed here for 8 days to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had an over water bungalow. There are bungalows with a mountain view or pay more and have a sea view. To be honest I wouldn't pay the extra as you're not in the bungalow that much and when you are its dark so you can't see the view anyway. If we stayed again I would opt for a beach bungalow. Having been around the whole island this hotel has probably got one of the nicest beaches. The room was really large with a glass floor. It could probably to with a bit of an update and of note there is an over bath shower which may cause problems for people climbing in and out. We cannot fault the staff. They are multi lingual and there is always someone on hand to speak English, French, Spanish or Japanese. The cleaners were in the room up to 3 times a day. In fact there was no need. While out for dinner we would return to a gift on the bed, flowers on the pillow and a little card with a local legend. Our only grumble, and this is more for the whole island, but there is literally nothing to do at night. The hotel put on a cultural night twice a week but that is it. Despite being within walking distance of the town, there are no bars and only two restaurants. So be prepared to provide your own entertainment. We had no issues with the breakfast, there is literally whatever you want, the coffee is awful, but thats across the island. We ate twice in the hotel and this was typical hotel food, mass produced and not cooked to order. We only ate there as we ran out of choice. Overall this is a great hotel in a great setting.

Friendly Staff, loved snorkeling along reef and dropoff”

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here. The water here doesn't look as phenomenal as it does down at the Sofitel, but the snorkeling is still great. And the prices are significantly cheaper than the Sofitel. The biggest issue I had was with the sporadic, very slow wi-fi. If you need to work while you are on Moorea, don't count on consistent wifi. (This seems be an issue across the island).

The best value and hotel”

We are a family of 5 and we stayed here for 8 nights. We snagged a deal on Agoda and received 25% off and the kids ate for free. It was an incredible deal!!! They had free paddle boards that we used daily. They also had free kayakas and snorkel gear. There wasn't a think they wouldn't do for us. We stayed in a garden view family loft. They did turn down service brought us cookies and wine etc. I would highly recommend it. It has the best pool compared to the Hilton and The Intercontinental. We checked those out too. Everyone was super friendly. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the biggest village on the island which is a nice bonus. I'd stay here again for sure!! The only Con was the wifi. We couldn't get a signal in our room and it was sub par everywhere else. They did however invite us to use the office computer when our flight got changed so we could iron things out. A big yes to this resort!!

Beautiful sunset from premium overwater bungalow!”

This resort is stunning. The staff are all nice and accomodating especially Antoniette from the reception desk. We stayed in the Premium Overwater Bungalow room 406. I would have liked to stay a little further from the main house for more privacy and seclusion but it is no big deal. The resort was not too busy at this time of the year. It was hot and humid weather when we stayed in March 2019. The ac and the fan helped relieved the stickiness and hunidity. We had some rain but mostly at night where it was really pouring down. There is a free wifi but mostly not working and spotty at best. Sending photos was a challenged. The buffet was a disappoinment. Not a lot of choices and minimalistic. I expected more variety of tropival fruits. The pineapple were the only ones worth mentioning for they are sweet and delicious. The buffet is $35 pp which is not worth it. Lucky we included this in our room. No restaurant around the area except the little Grill place across the street.

Wouldn’t stay there again!”

For a hotel in that price category you’d expect it to be nicer. It was pretty run down, lots of things were broken. The first night we stayed in a Premium Overwater Bungalow which was fantastic but the 2 nights after we stayed at a beach bungalow since all overwater bungalows were booked. The beach bungalow wasn’t nice at all. Our location wasn’t that good, the key card stopped working all the time, the WiFi kept having issues and the condition of the room was not great. The hotel needs some updating. Also, the beach in this location isn’t very nice then at other moorea resorts, I wouldn’t choose to go here again.

My husband and I booked a deluxe duplex apt which the description said included a kitchenette and sofa. Our room had neither and this was quite disappointing. The small fridge in the room we were told was more of a "cooler" but it wasn't cold at all. The facilities themselves are nice and the staff is very attentive and friendly. Like most resorts in Moorea the food is overpriced. It was nice that our stay included breakfast each day as this was great with a wide selection of food. We enjoyed the kayaking and SUP equipment the resort offered. The location close to town and restaurants is very convenient.

The overwater bungalows, the snorkeling off the hotel, the food

We spent our honeymoon in one of the overwater bungalows. The premium overwater bungalows are beautiful and nicely air conditioned (very important in French Polynesia!). We LOVED the overwater bungalows. We also enjoyed the free use of the kayaks and paddle-boards, as well as the beautifully appointed grounds. The snorkeling off our bungalow was FANTASTIC. However, several parts of the hotel are in serious need of repair. Most of the tiles making up the pool are cracked, and could easily cut or injure someone who falls or knocks into them the wrong way (every time kids played, I cringed with nervousness). The same was true with the larger deck tiles around the pool. Many of them were dislodged. At dinner, one of the waitresses had to put one back in its place! It wasn't even stuck to the ground. That seemed dangerous--and in the U.S. would be enough for a hotel to lose their 4-star rating. Also, the service was very slow and they didn't always follow through. One day in particular, the maid came to clean our room, but we were still in it. She offered to come back in ten minutes so that we had time to get into our swimsuits and go to the pool while she cleaned. Well over an hour passed and she totally forgot to clean our bungalow. She never came back. My husband wasn't feeling well, so eventually we just gave up on getting our room cleaned at all that day. What was also frustrating was that every day the maids would take our wet towels (beach towels and the deck towels for the bungalows) and then not replace them. Every day we had to call to ask them to bring new towels, which meant we didn't have them when we wanted to use them. With a few updates and better service, this would be a four or five star hotel. However, to me, it felt more like a 3-star hotel at most. However, if you're looking for affordable overwater bungalows, this is a great option. The overwater bungalows are wonderful.

Overwater Bungalows amazing but mediocre service”

bungalows, location, snorkelling

Firstly I need to lead with Moorea is one of the most beautiful places & the premium Overwater bungalow has spoilt us for life. What lets this place down is the service, there's no evidence of management so it feels like the staff set their own standards which fall well short. Check-in was slow & unfriendly. Night 1 we went to happy hour, bar staff ignore you till they are ready to serve you. We witness a guest say "excuse me" to bar staff (was waiting for a while) - she barked at him "Just wait Sir". Needs maintenance in places (pool area) but biggest problem is hospitality basics not covered (lack of smiles, poor communication, if a member of staff is wandering around in a world of their own you have to move out of their way. NYE gala dinner (mandatory) no agenda provided. Reception gave us the details but they were ALL wrong. We paid almost $350 each & missed the reception as we had been given all the wrong info. The show was fantastic and the Gala dinner was much better than expected. The OW Bungalows are THE MOST AMAZING ROOMS with every facility you could need, built on a reef so fishes galore, giant turtles etc. REQUEST A ROOM ON THE QUIET SIDE (I'd done my research & they allocated us the best bungalow 419). The other side near the pool was very shallow water and next to a little beach which locals use to blare music, kids constantly jumping in the water screaming (it would have ruined our holiday if we were staying at that end as it was so very loud). The free snorkels & free paddle boards were great & a lot of fun. Food is pretty average and expensive (everywhere is expensive on the islands). Mahi Mahi burger was yummy. It sounds like I'm being negative about the place but we did love it but there is room for improvement and it is 85% staff training. I would still highly recommend but just don't expect good service or great food. It is still an amazing destination for a holiday.
