Description: Although our family of seven could only spend a week on both islands, we made memories to last a life time.

The island of Tahiti and the surrounding ocean is breathtaking. We enjoyed the hotel benefit of snorkeling in the ocean right outside the hotel. Also, we could walk along the paths and see the sea life in the clear waters. The infinity pools were also beautiful. In contrast, we were able to journey into the center of the island on a 4 X4 tour.

Moorea is know for outstanding sealife and it did not disappoint. We were able to walk out of our bungalows and snorkel seeing a great variety including numerous fish, sharks, octopus, bat ray, sting rays ,etc. This hotel, also, had access to a dolphin and a sea turtle rehabilitation center. It was great to wake up every day and say, "Hello" to the dolphins. We were able to view the island on a hike and it was, also, picturesque.

We really appreciated that the travel package included travel to and from the hotels and airport, to and from the hotels and ferry, and also the ferry ride. It would have been complicated trying to arrange that from home. Also, it included a breakfast buffet feast every morning.
