My wife and I spent 10 days at the Sofitel in Bora Bora. The location was wonderful, the views were gorgeous, and the staff was friendly. The food was good (tons of fish cooked rare) including burgers and french cuisine. My wife and I had done a lot of research on resorts, and we felt that we arrived at the... More

This place is pretty special. It's a long flight out here, no mater where you came from, so it was nice to have someone greet you at the airport and put you into the hotel boat shuttle (the boats pick you up literally 20 feet from where the airport drops your luggage). Ride out here was smooth, and about 30... More

Sofitel Bora Bora Resort, It is an older resort and needs some updating/TLC. But we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a lagoon front bungalow # 68. The room was large with a king size bed, which was fairly comfortable. The bathroom had a rain shower which I loved. A nice deck with steps going into the water. The lagoon... More

I will definitely go back to Sofitel Marara and Private island on my next trip to Bora Bora, the staff is so professional and kind and the facilities are a true beauty. I love to go swimming and kayaking from the private island to the natural Coral Gardens

My husband and I arrived late in the evening so were unable to view beautiful Bora Bora from the air. We did enjoy the boat ride to the Sofitel for our 6 night stay. Stayed in a lagoon front bungalow (#54) which had a wonderful view of the lagoon and Sofitel's private island. In my opinion this room category was... More

We just returned from this hotel and thought the overall experience was very nice. As some say, the hotel could use some basic maintenance but it is an older hotel. It also should be remembered that it is a "boutique" hotel so it is smaller and doesn't have all the perks of a larger one. However, for the price, it... More

My husband and I went to Bora Bora in the last week of October 2014 for our 1 year anniversary/Honeymoon.

This is a very difficult review because it regards Sofitel. Up to now we have never been disappointed with the Accor Group or especially Sofitel. That was the thought when I booked Bora Bora as a present for my spouse. The moment I saw that there is a Sofitel, I didn't think twice and booked. The location of the Marara... More
