I think the global installations were excellent. The beauty of the sea with its remarkable color is amazing. The "chambre" with very good look and confortable. But, the services sometimes weren't so good. It's necessary more qualification. Well, the best instalations -- the "chambre"-- and the worst -- the wi-fi with very weak signal.

Came here in mid June and really had a fantastic time. We stayed at Sofitel Marara beach for five days. Got in late afternoon from Vaitape, we were greeted with smiles and warm welcome when checking in. As the hotel staff talked us through the check in process, another staff came with two refreshing pineapple drinks. Very tasty and refreshing!... More

Arrived at the Sofitel Bora Bora after leaving the Sofitel Moorea (my 5 star review). Immediately we could see a HUGE difference between staff attitudes on Moorea and Bora Bora. On Bora Bora, there was a sense of "you're lucky to be here...", whereas in Moorea it felt like, "We're so lucky to have you here!". The property is run... More

Spent four nights in mid May. Changed rooms twice. Staff was polite, views very nice, ocean water perfect temp. But for a room on Bora Bora...at that price...the only mention of a bug should have been while reading a Russian spy novel.

Last minute trip; booked it 2 weeks prior to check in day so this hotel is the only one that has owb room left to book. Check in process was long and lengthy, though we have one of the best view owb, and the room itself is spacious, I wished it can be more clean and have better pest control... More

Enjoyed our 2 day stay at this Resort in a deluxe over Lagoon Bungalow. Staff very friendly especially their trainee Concierge Helen who helped us with our bookings for restaurants and transfers. Enjoyed their Tahitian Show and facilities. Bloody Mary's a "must". Viatape village not really worth visiting from our point of view unless you want to buy Tahitian pearls.... More
