This is exactly like the brochures. We purchased a package deal 3 nights at this Resort before moving on. Our package had us staying in a Garden Room, however we upgraded to an over water bungalow for 2 of the 3 nights. Over water Bungalow: It was just like the brochures! A very nicely decorated room which faced the open ocean. There were french doors which led to a nice deck - it even had a smaller lower deck with stairs for easy access into the ocean for snorkeling. this would have been great had we had good weather. Our room had bathtub/shower. I like the tub, but my tall hubby had to kneel in the tub to shower. :) (The drawbacks of being tall.), hairdryer was fine and toiletries they supplied were great. Loved the Monoi oil this resort supplied (it is wonderful!) Shampoo & Conditioner were fine which was good as I packed light for this trip and left mine behind. There is 110V plug for us Canadians so no need to panic and pack any converters. Room had a viewing window into ocean in the floor. Sounds more exciting than it really is. We didn't see much from our in room floor - would rather hang out on the deck and look over. Our 2nd room - Garden bungalow was just as beautiful! This room didn't have any ocean view, but it had a big deck with comfy furniture and a nice lush view of the garden. No downside to this room at all. After all, how much time do you really spend in your room. Bar Fridge in the rooms to put water and other beverages you acquire. Note: food & beverages all over are on the pricey side. Makes sense when you realize that they have to fly everything in. Staff were very friendly. Resort grounds nicely manicured. Pool was nice and clean and a great place to gather. snorkel gear and towels were available from the friendly staff at the pool. Bar - fun place to gather. Service a little slow, but everyone is on Island Time. It makes you relax! Slow down the pace! After all, isn't that why we all go. Restaurant. Nice setup. Not a bad selection for Breakfast buffet. Standard fair. We had a couple of dinners in the restaurant and food was not bad. Spa. Hubby had a massage & I had a facial. Both very nice. Nothing that you wouldn't get at home, only with resort prices. We didn't go into town at all as we had big rains the whole time we were there. Nice touch of the resort was providing umbrellas and/or plastic rain gear in the rooms.

We had a chance to visit some friends, eat, swim and hang out at this "resort". Very nice and if you have a bungalow over the sea you can "see" but this place built the bungalows across the entire ocean front of the property so that everyone else cant even see the ocean much less the island of Tahiti. Well kept. Nice staff but unless you are at the top of the food chain you will see nothing but bungalows.

Perfect. Boutique. Amazing. Fantastic. We so loved our week at Manava in Moorea. Easy checkin. Easy everything. The staff are amazing. We loved them all especially Tieva and Ralph at the pool. Those two were particularly helpful to all guests. Front desk great too. Garden duplex excellent and great value. Easy for family of four. Nearby local restaurants of style were Moorea Beach Cafe (wow), Rudy's and Le Mahogoney. Supermarket nearby, as is an excellent and inexpensive laundry. Money machines too. Taxi to and from ferry XPF2,500

One of our best vacations ever! The resort was beautifully maintained and staff friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and my son raved about the Polynesian buffet on Saturday night. We included the morning buffet in our stay which was great. A nice selection of fruits, breads and made to order eggs. We also ate at the bar and had poolside service. Prices were above average but convenience factor and taste made up for cost. The pool area was very nice with views of the lagoon. Paddle boards and kayaks were readily available for use. Snorkeling gear is also available but if you plan to snorkel regularly bring your own as you need to return the gear daily . Snorkeling at the resort is pretty good and can be accessed by the shore or jumping of the bungalows dock. We saw many beautifully colored fish, the 2 resident sea turtles, octopus, sharks and eels. The coral around the resort is pretty bleached out but there is still a wide variety of sea life which congregates around the existing coral. They have a coral restoration project under the over water bungalows and the colorful coral seems to be regenerating. Many fish are there too. The accommodations are fantastic!! We stayed in the overwater bungalows. If you can stay in the premium bungalows, they face out to the ocean and are worth the extra!! Beautiful views and you can jump directly from your dock into the ocean. Bungalows 401-410 are the best, with views of the setting sun. We found the best snorkeling around bungalow 402-403. Regularly one of the turtles was hanging out down below. We opted for the regular bungalows 416 and 417. We loved 417, facing up the coastline and having the most amazing view of the rising sun each morning. We couldn't jump off our deck because of the coral below but had a great time watching the fish which lived in the coral below. We also had bungalow 416, facing the beach but having wonderful afternoon sun and gorgeous views of the lush green hillsides. There are 3 overwater bungalows facing the pool, do your best by calling the resort to not get those bungalows . The resort is a short walk to town , good casual restaurants for lunch and a grocery store to pick up snacks, beer , fresh baguettes and lunch meats. If you plan on drinking hard alcohol while on vacation , buy at duty free on your way , the cost in Tahiti is easily double to what you would pay at home. Concierge was friendly and helpful . We booked a couple excursions, snorkeling and Tiki village through them and also made dinner reservations for the local restaurants each day. We had a couple massages as well. They were pretty good and relaxing. We visited the Intercontinental and Hilton while on Moorea but definitely liked the boutique feel and the ambience of Manava the best!

After cruising the islands on Windstar Yachts, we spent four days at the Manava Beach Resort and Spa. We had two days in a garden suite with our own private pool and two days in a premier over water bungalow. Both rooms were huge and well-appointed. Big thumbs up for the spa where a friend and I had massages - beautiful and peaceful place with excellent therapists for every type of therapy. Breakfast was also great with anything you could imagine to eat and drink. Dinner was just so-so. The staff was either very friendly and accommodating or silent and borderline rude. Disappointed by that. The excursion desk set the six of us up with a boat tour around Mo'orea with a trio of characters that we will never forget - if you go there ask for Phillipe's boat with Stephan and Margo. They are well-known on the island. Phillipe was a chef at the Sofitel Hotel so the little beach BBQ we were expecting was an incredible feast - served on a table and chairs set right into the water on Coco Beach. He served homemade rum punch that was sublime. Our big disappointment with the hotel was that wifi was supposed to be in every room and we were looking forward to connecting with our daughter after our cruise. Ours was spotty at best in the garden room and non existent in the bungalow. The staff did little to nothing to fix it and told us to go sit at the bar if we really wanted to use it. Not up to par for a luxury resort. Otherwise Mo'orea is a magical and beautiful island. Go!
