My husband and I had stayed there during our honeymoon and loved it so much we decided to go back to it for our 10 year anniversary. The property, even though it had changed ownership from Sheraton to Hilton, was everything we had remembered. Fantastic location, over-water bungalows built right in the middle of a coral garden so that you can snorkel right off your deck, excellent service, and Moorea is still in our opinion the island with the most breath-taking scenery in all of French Polynesia. Even though we had to endure a minor hick-up on March 11 when we were asked by the hotel staff at five in the morning to gather up our most important belongings and come to the hotel lobby because there was a tsunami alert, the staff handled the crisis beautifully in a relaxed and friendly manner. We were served warm pastries right out of the oven, juice and coffee, while waiting for further isntructions, then walked across the street up onto the mountain behind the hotel where more pastries and juices awaited us. The staff kept everybody informed personally of what was going on, asking about individual situations and discussing how the plans for the day might be affected, then we were calmly led back to the hotel once the alert was lifted about 4 hours later. The only negative comment I would make about the hotel is that the cost of the breakfast buffet was not included in our room price and they charge the equivalent of $50 per person for breakfast, which we felt was very steep for the quality of the buffet (OK but nothing sensational that would justify that price). We would have prefered to pay $100 more for the room an not be charged for breakfast. This being said, we would go back to this resort in a heartbeat. Truly a magical place....
