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

We stayed here for about 5 days in May 2014. We booked the half overwater bungalow. Looking at the price difference between full overwater and half overwater I would advice to go for the half overwater; most of the full overwater did not have a better view than our bungalow. Service of staff is great, and location of the resort... More

We stayed at the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach May 2014. The bungalows are wonderful and had everything we needed and were very clean. Ask for rooms 49 and 50.
