REVIEW - Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa (Moorea, French Polynesia)
Video Review of the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa in French Polynesia.
Today I’m reviewing the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa. We wanted to go to Bora Bora but the Hilton there was under construction and they weren’t taking reservations. However, I’ve been on many tropical vacations and this was by far the best one.
Beach- The beach was beautiful and there was hardly any seaweed but it was pretty small. If you like to take long walks on the beach like I do, this is definitely NOT the place to do it. My husband and I walked around on the overwater bungalow walkways as a substitute.However, If you’re staying in an overwater bungalow, you don’t really need the beach because of your own private dock. 3.5 stars
Pool- The pool looked amazing from the photos online- but once we arrived there was caution tape around it and was out of service for our entire trip. It was very disappointing. We weren’t going to use it anyway, but if it was in service it would have been very nice. I contacted Hilton about it and they compensated us for what we missed out on. 3 stars
Grounds- The grounds were well kept. The overwater bungalow walkways were beautiful to walk on. No complaints. 5 stars
Room- The room was incredible and the view was amazing. We had our own private dock to snorkel and swim off of. There was a glass floor window where we could see the fish below. The room was clean and modern. Prior to our stay we looked at the resort map and saw that over bungalow no. 87 was the most private. We called ahead 6 months in advance to reserve it It had a 180 degree view of the ocean so we were glad we did that. Hands down. 5 stars
Food- As far as food goes, pretty good, but on this vacation, it was not my focus. The options available were to eat at the resort or to visit the various nearby restaurants which had free shuttles as transportation. My husband and I went to a restaurant called Rudy’s where we had the highly recommended crab stuffed parrot fish. It was so good that we went back twice. We also ate at the crepe restaurant which was located on the walkways of the overwater bungalows. It’s pretty cool because you can watch the sharks swim by while you eat. 4.5 stars
Staff- All of the staff were very friendly and everyone said hello to you when you walked by. Dinah from guest services hooked us up with room #87 and was very helpful prior to the trip. 5 stars
Nightlife- We never experienced any of the nightlife, since it was honeymoon trip. once or twice a week they had fire dancers perform at the resort which ended at 10pm at the latest. I would rate it 5 stars because it was good enough for a relaxing honeymoon vacation.
Activities- One of the activities that I loved was snorkeling (apparently it’s the best in the world). It was SO amazing and we saw different colorful fish every dive. The hotel provides you with snorkeling gear so you don’t have to bring your own. I found some Kate Spade sunglasses while snorkeling, so if you’re missing some, let me know. There was also paddleboarding and kayaking available. We took the paddleboards out in the morning to watch the sun rise. That was incredible. 5 stars
Excursions- There were a few different excursions available. My husband and I decided to try the four wheeler pineapple tour. It was cool, fun, but a little long. We also went on the helicopter tour which I highly recommend. The jet-skis were a lot of fun we had a blast. 4.5 stars.
Before I finish, I just want to mention that we went in early May and that’s usually when the island is coming out of summer season. In the summer it is usually very rainy and we didn’t have great weather. So if you’re looking for good weather, go between late May and late September. The weather is not as hot and these are the drier months. Regardless of the weather, it was still an incredible experience
So far, this has been the best trip I’ve been on. It was quite the experience. There are probably better hotels on the other islands, but this was really an incredible vacation. Overall I would rate the trip 4.5/5
24 HOURS IN TAHITI - IS IT WORTH IT?
Is Tahiti a destination worth exploring?
Wanting to make the most out of our very last day in French Polynesia, we decided to rent a car from the airport and explore the island of Tahiti!
We stayed at Fare Nukumai, an affordable local pension and I'd recommend it:
We had an amazing dinner at Lani's BBQ - portion was huge and taste was great!
We rented a small car from Tahiti Easy Car, which cost about $85. I'd recommend renting a 4x4 instead, so you can get to the cool spots.
With just a few hours, we went to Maraa Grotto, which is beautiful and accessible. However, it was completely blocked! We drove to Teahupo’o, one of the world's most famous surf breaks, before backing track to Faarumai waterfall, which is free to visit and not much of a deviation from the route. They look best after rainfall. Our final stop was Papenoo Valley, where most people would book a 4 x 4 tour to see, as it’s not possible to get very far unless you have a 4 x 4 vehicle.
So was Tahiti worth exploring, or are you better off spending your time elsewhere? Watch till the end to find out!

French Polynesia Vlog 2 - Moorea Snorkeling Adventure in 4K
We start this vlog with a tour of our garden bungalow with plunge pool at the Intercontinental Moorea. Then, we explored the resort grounds by kayaking. We ended the night with dinner at Coco D'isle and a wonderful fire show at the hotel.
Day 2 is one of our favorite days for the whole trip! We snorkelled in the beautiful lagoon with Moorea Miti Tours. If you ever visit Moorea, we strongly suggest picking them! Our guides were friendly, funny and clearly loved sharing their culture with us :)

FLYING to TAHITI (PPT) Papeete / Moorea from Los Angeles (LAX) International Airport
Direct (non-stop) flight from Los Angeles (LAX) International Airport to Fa'a'ā (PPT) International Airport in Pape'ete on Christmas Eve/Day. There are no direct flights to Mo'orea. To travel to Mo'orea you must fly to Tahiti / Pape'ete and transfer to Mo'orea via ferry which takes approx :30 minutes. LAX is very crowded on holidays, so for international flights, be sure to arrive at the check-in counter no less than 3 hours prior to your flight, so you can be through security and at your departure gate at least 1 hour before departure. Since you have to take a bus from the departure gate to the plane, they start boarding 1 hour prior to takeoff (unlike domestic flights which board :30 minutes prior to takeoff).
The flight from LAX to Tahiti (PPT) is 8.25 hours, and from PPT to LAX on the return flight home it was 8.10 hours.
We booked our flights with Air Tahiti Nui, hotel at Sofitel la Ora Beach Resort, round-trip ferry from Tahiti to Moorea, and round-trip ground transportation to and from the hotel through Pacific For Less.
