"60's tiki vibe"
Good hotel that gave off an old 60's tiki vibe. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in an Overwater bungalow. The room itself was spacious and clean. It was perfect for snorkeling or just lounging around on our deck. We especially loved feeding the fish in morning through the glass coffee table. There's plenty of activities to do around the resort such as kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddle or snorkeling. But you can also ask concierge for other activity options outside of the hotel. We decided to rent bikes and ride to the main town, on the way back, it rained like crazy but we loved it because it was all part of the adventure! Although this hotel is older compared to their other IC sister hotel in Borabora, it has a major advantage due to its location on the main island. Which means you can explore more and also have more options when it comes to shopping for food or souvenirs. Like the other reviewers posted, the small supermarket store just outside of the hotel (main road) was a great place to stock up on drinks, snacks and meals! Tip: try to go early in the morning (7am). The store is already buzzing with locals buying fresh baguettes, other pastries and even a whole roasted chicken for $10! (That's cheap considering everything in Bora bora is expensive). Overall, I would recommend IC Le Moana due to it's location, friendly staff and OTW bungalows.
"Pros and cons "
Just came back from I'm a five night stay at resort. It was cozy. We had bungalow 29 over the water. It faced away from the mountain, toward the sea. It was at the very very end of the dock, and it got no sun till the afternoon. It was also extremely windy!!!! Like a hurricane sounding wind. We might have had some unusual weather, but it was very loud for a couple of nights and the wind was so bad you couldn't sit out on deck or go in the water by the bungalow. The hotel is located on the main island which is a pro. The restaurant was ok, the staff were super nice. No room service,don't know if that's just something typical at the four store hotels. Just room service for drinks. The other Intercontinental which is 5 star is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! I would pay the difference and stay there. The pool and spa are location are AWESOME.
Very nice location, price reasonable. Have beach side bungalow as no over waters were available during booking. Retrospectively won't spend extra for over water, beach side very nice and comfortable. Try the pillow service, free, you special order pillow of choice. Was contacted upon check in to commit to half price breakfast buffet, made it ok deal, but selection a bit on slight side. Compared to Morris intercontinental.
We really enjoyed our relaxing stay at the hotel. The bungalows on the water were a perfect space for couples. Nice sitting areas and a reasonable size bathroom space was a nice intimate size. Large tub and an additional shower space. The manager went way out of her way to engage with us and insure our stay was wonderful. The grounds were immaculately kept with perpetually working groundskeepers. The food was very good but certainly not inexpensive. A very beautiful and comfortable unpretentious property.
