I went there on my honeymoon - it was absolutely beautiful! Check my pages for pictures!
They have a great website at www.dream-island.com. Apparently, the property is currently for sale; see the listing at http://www.luxuryrealestate.com/110369
It's called "Fantasy Island" in the listing but appears to be the same property.

Travel Tips for Moorea
Despite its touristy feel, Moorea Lagoon really is quite lovely. There are some beautiful bungalows built over the water, and although I wasn't able to stay in one of these, I am not ashamed to say that I would if I were on a shorter trip or had money to burn. The color of the water here is unbelievable--the brightest, most beautiful turquoise you can imagine.
Anybody out there looking for a nice place to go on a honeymoon or other romantic getaway--here you go. I believe that's the Moorea Lagoon Hôtel you see in this photograph.

Moorea is also known as the « Pineapple island ». Indeed, pinapples are very abundant, and can be considered as the main island production. We visited a plantation at the agricultural school (Lycee Agricole), where we could see the different growing stages of this delicious fruit. We enjoyed it a lot ! The sght of those pineapple field was really fantastic !
If you stop at juice company « Jus de Fruit de Moorea », you can taste various products made of pineapples and other fruits (but it was closed when we went).
The waters of Moorea are ideal to discover an extraordinary marine fauna. The water temperature is very pleasant and the crystal clear quality makes it a pleasure to swim around freely and without danger.
French Polynesian Poisson Cru
Although I would not call this the single most important activity or site while on Moorea, I definitely want to share with you the delicious dish that the Mooreans call Poisson Cru.
Poisson is obviously fish, so first add fresh mahi-mahi or tuna (if you are in the non-ocean world, make sure it is considered sushi-grade fish).
Slice up the fish, put it in a bowl.
Add Lime juice or Lemon juice.
Add a couple pinches of salt.
Mix around in the bowl for a couple seconds.
Drain out excess lime juice, however keep some in there.
Add coconut milk to taste.
Dice up cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots and toss in.
Shake it up once again, and add a lettuce garnish.
You now have a delicious island meal! No cooking necessary, because the citrus kills bacteria on fish!
