Our stay did not begin so well. We had asked for a bungalow away from the restaurant. When we arrived, in front of the restaurant was exactly where they put us. The staff worked quickly to move us, but we did wait an additional hour and a half for our new room to be cleaned. That night the gate to... More

Friendly staff, great location. The rooms beautiful but the bathroom has coach roaches-leave the bathroom light on. Never seen them any where else in the room. The rooms were cleaned everyday. Bring a light, the paths can be dark in places and the maintenance is not kept up very good.The tours are nice that they offer, but just rent a... More

We had our wedding here . Location is fab, rooms clean tidy and staff brilliant. For the ladies out there- there is a hairdryer but unless you want to spend hours drying your hair take your own -as you have to keep the button pressed in to dry your hair and take your straighteners unless you want to look like...

The Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort provided us with an unforgettable vacation. We would absolutely love to return to this resort in the future. The awesome resort service started from the time we landed at Bora Bora Airport. There was a representative of the airport waiting for us when our flight landed and we were given a flower garland...

We went to Bora Bora for our honeymoon in November (thanks to a scoopon voucher). It was exactly what we needed after the busy time before and after the wedding. There really wasn't too much to do there other than swim and snorkel. The resort was beautiful and we were glad we stayed in the overwater bungalow. It was absolutely... More

We stayed at the Private Hotel but did visit this hotel as well to have a meal and for the shuttle rides. While the hotel is nice overall, it seemed more catered to families with kids and in Bora Bora you want to be in a more relaxing atmosphere in a secluded place like Bora Bora.

First two nights we stayed in a Garden bungalow, then switched to the beach front bungalow. Only difference was the view. The beds unfortunately are old (lumpy) but loved the king size (except that because of lumps you can't use the center). lol The staff was nice (a few rude ones) but overall most were helpful - but it was...

Arriving to the hotel, everything seemed perfect. The staff was lovely and the facade of hotel seemed beautiful. Quite honestly it's hard for anything to not look beautiful with such a gorgeous landscape. Service from maintenance, reception, housekeeping, these folks were gracious and kind. The daily wait staff at the restaurant and bar was hit or miss. I always felt... More
