I spend one week with my love at the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort this august! It was an amazing week. My boyfriend is tahitian so I know the culture a little and got to see other places too but this week was just extraordinary from my other experiences. It is located at such a lovely spot.

After a dismal and chaotic start we eventually found the atmosphere at this Resort to be quite relaxing. There was no 'pressure' to do anything at any time other than what you wanted when you wanted. The one major 'disappointment' was probably our 'welcome'. The Staff member at the airport was awesome, and between her and the boat skipper, we... More

We went back in 2009. I have never had a better trip .. It was something that you can't even describe until you have been there.. We stayed half in beach bungalow and half on over water hut. It was so relaxing and AMAZING to see. The snorkelling was so much fun. It is expensive so if you don't want... More

We signed up for the eco-tour and we did not ever expect what we got. The tour guide Tau picked us up at the resort at 9:15, he then picked up another group and we were on our way. It was my 17 year old and 7 year old daughters that were with me. Our first stop was a shallow... More

We booked a pick up from the airport however on arrival the hotel rep. told us that it was more economical to take the Air Tahiti ferry and that she would arrange for a taxi to meet us at the jetty. The taxi fare was then 2500 CHF compared to 9000 per person on the hotel boat. We were well... More

Thank you for your comment. The idea of having our Sofitel private boat for a beautiful ride of 20 mn between the airport located at the north of the island to our Sofitel down the south is to start your stay with a magnifique experience, riing the lagoon of Bora Bora, not worry about luggage transferts, finding a taxi and...

I travelled there in July 2014 and I was disappointed with the place. First of all, for the 2 days that we spent there, there was a house across the street from the hotel which played very loud music pretty much the whole day and the whole night. I complained to the reception twice, but the loud music continued. When... More

We stayed at the Sofitel. It is a good hotel, even if you stay at the "garden view" rooms; they are well appointed, clean and nice. Watch your bill at departure. I don't think a lot of people pay attention to their final bill when you expect to pay a lot of money, but for example they charged me 4... More

This hotel was great, we were made to feel special by Anita Roihau who met us off the boat. We have to say that Anita went out of her way to help us. We upgraded to the overwater bungalow for the first 2 nights, and it was definitely worth it. All of the bar staff were very friendly as well,... More

When we were there, there were many kids (from the way they were treated they seemed family of the staff) shouting and splashing water all around in the pool area. No one in the hotel told them anything so it lasted for hours
