Moorea overwater vs Tahiti Overwater

We are planning a trip to French Polynesia for next year. With so many options, it is hard to decide what to do. We are thinking about going on the Tahitian Princess for ten days and then stay in an OWB before we fly home. If we decide not to fly to another island (Tikehau or Bora Bora are two options), we are looking for some feedback on whether Moorea or Tahiti would be a good option (logistics). We would love to stay in an OWB and snorkel right from our deck. All suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

HI Gordo:

Definately Moorea overwater....the water there will be that lovely azure blue you are looking for...most of the beaches in Tahiti are black sand.....

Gordo,

Definitely recommend the Sheraton Lagoon Resort on Moorea. They have great OW bungalows, great beach and it’s a good spot for snorkeling. If you can stay in Bora Bora, I would highly recommend it. The water is even more beautiful than Moorea.

The Sheraton Moorea's OWB were wonderful! The water is warm and crystal clear. Shully recommended it and we were not disappointed. We are going back in 2008!
