Less than 10 minutes away from Tahiti by air or less than one hour by ferry are the deep, spectacular bays and white sand beaches of Moorea. It is no doubt perfect spot for honeymoon but also great destination for family vacation. You can easily find deals where kids eat and fly free.

We stayed in Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa. Well maintained with beautiful grounds and plentiful breakfast buffet was just what we were looking for. This hotel offers several dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner (including overwater French Crepe Bar). There are no other restaurants or shops within walking distance however many local restaurants provide complimentary shuttle service if you make a reservation. There is also local pizza place which will deliver to your hotel (best option if you consider cost). After visiting couple of other resorts we got to really appreciate our choice of accommodation.

Reef around Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa is in much better condition with lots of fish to see and shallow lagoon was perfect for snorkeling especially for the youngest one. Highlight of our stay was an upgrade to overwater bungalow for last few nights. It was well worth little extra cost.

There are plenty of activities on the island to choose from so whether you’re up for diving, hiking or just simply unwind and relax you can be sure you will find it there. Close proximity to Tahiti as well as low key relaxed atmosphere make is perfect vacation getaway that we found to be more affordable than other islands of French Polynesia.
