Staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. Prompt service. We stayed in a beach front bungalow and couldn't ask for a better view! I noticed some limited flooding near 2-3 bungalows due to a 3 meter wave surge in the lagoon on one day. That resulted in some issues with power for parts of that day, but ultimately those... More

I just returned from a vacation to Bora Bora with my sisters. We had a fantastic time at the Sofitel Beach hotel. the staff could not have been nicer to us. All were very friendly and most helpful. They took excellent care of us. Additionally, our beach hut was located right on the beach - snorkeling was just a wade... More

We stayed in a beach front bungalow which was really lovely, waves lapping at night. The bungalow was good in size, plenty of room to move around. The toilet was leaking at first but was quickly fixed. The staff are lovely and very helpful.. The following is a minor comment and not to be detrimental to the overall hotel. A... More

We were there with three kids on the main island. They charge us 9000PF for a day trip per person (including lunch) to visit the private island so we never did. Breakfast was nothing compared to the sumptuous buffet at Sofitel Moorea. The hotel staff were not very co-ordinated, Nevertheless, they were trying their best to be friendly. Sure it... More

First thing-make sure you arrive on any day except Friday-that is Anita's (Ann) day off and she is awesome! She greeted us off the boat with a drink and tons of information. Throughout our 10 day trip we went to her and she never failed us! Anita is worth her slight weight in gold-hope they are paying her well. Our... More

This hotel is located very well on the main island with some restaurants, shops and grocery stores within walking distance. It is also located on a very beautiful area of the island and very close to the best coral garden. After spending a few days at the Pearl in Moorea prior to our visit at the Sofitel in Bora Bora...

Went for 8 days for our Honeymoon...everyone is SOO nice and they have snorkel gear, canoes and boats you can use for the day - it's great. Definitely make sure to stay in one of the over-water huts. It's amazing...the hotel is situated on the actual island, so you can take your pick of restaurants and activities. The breakfast is... More

We arrived at the Sofitel early (we were taken by our pension owner) and were blown away. Its rustic decor really highlights a traditional Tahitian feeling and its just beautiful. We were given a complementary welcome drink before checking in - this was a bit hard as they had lost our booking form. The woman checking us in wasn't the... More
