Hilton Moorea: Fun in the Sun

11

Hilton Moorea Hotel Review is part of the Tahiti Triumph Trip Report. It covers the following cities:

See the Picture Preview here and see how this $60,000 trip cost $1999 here. Be sure to check out TPOL’s Map, the best feature of the blog.


So long IC snobbery (see IC Bora Bora Thalasso: Cockroach, No A/C, Some Champagne, What The Duck!IC Le Moana Bora Bora: Pointless Stay). Hello, casual Hilton.

Hotel Itself 

This is the type of hotel that I could break my speed travel rule (see ThePointsOfLife Travel Philosophy) and stay for a few days, rain or shine.

Beach 

There is a beach but why make use of it when you have an over-water bungalow?

Bar 

For the social-conscious traveler, the hotel is more lively than the IC. However, for $17 a drink, I could only socialize for so long.

Champagne

For the alcohol-conscious traveler, bring your own champagne.

Breakfast

For the budget-conscious status points traveler, there is free breakfast (contrast IC Bora Bora, TPOL Paid for Breakfast! And…).

Gym

For the weight-conscious traveler there is a good gym, but I gave up on working out while traveling.

Room

For those that want to sleep indoors, here’s the room:

Bathroom

For those who want to scrub indoors, here’s the bathroom:

Deck

For the IG-conscious traveler, secure an over-water bungalow with a view out to the sea (see Should I Pay for an Overwater Bungalow?).

Deep thoughts aren’t orchestrated.

Like above, the views are gorgeous, even when the weather was not perfect.

Action Shots 

For the goofy traveler, take some action shots.

Props 

For added flair, bring your own props. Like Bora Bora, we may have taken it too far.

Can you see me on the duck?
How about now?
Not champagne

Sharks & Stingrays 

For those who don’t want to swim with sharks and stingrays (see Swimming with Sharks & Stingrays in Moorea), they make house calls by day and night.

Water

For those that don’t want to go home, take more photos of the water.

Who’s on my pizza?

Couples Only

For those looking to go alone, don’t.

Overall

Great sun, great fun. Would return.

All smiles at the Hilton Moorea.

  1. My wife and I stayed there in November, what a special location and property. The water is so crystal clear and warm. Makes me want to go back. Overeater is a must here.
