Super clean, friendly, great food, great diving, great tourist outings. OK, over the water bungalows are fun & special experience but we spent a few days in one of the beach houses too. Both choices are A++. The SCUBA crew was very relaxed about rules etc. Didn't even ask of we were certified. Don't do your first dive here. Get... More

The hotel is not beach side but is actually located hillside between a municipal dump and a favella with errant aggressive dogs. So don’t be fooled by set up brochure pictures. Large disgusting stains on walls and on bed cover in our guestroom. Pillows were so used, soft and smelly that they were useless. However I am still waiting for... More

I must admit that I went in to this trip a little bit nervous after reading some reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed staying at the Novotel. Going to Bora Bora was a must for my honeymoon and staying at the Novotel was the most financially savvy choice to make it possible. We were greated with... More

We booked this hotel because it was a brand we knew in New Zealand. The brand represents "nothing special, basic and clean for us". So long as you're happy with this then this is probably a good deal for you. It wouldn't be a place to book for a honeymoon unless you are strapped for cash and getting there is... More

Maybe it was because of the rain but the rooms seemed, outdated, very dark and moldy. This was the smallest room and the worst hotel on my trip to French Polynesia (I stayed on 4 islands). There were some yellow and black stains under the shower, no hot water. After reporting it in the morning this was still not repaired... More

We visited the island of Bora Bora back in 2006 and stayed at this resort for 5 days. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of the stay. Although it is much cheaper than most of the resorts on the island the treatment we received was 5 star! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. The beach is beautiful... More

i can't believe anyone would give this hotel a bad review. The place is in the best location on the main island and is $300 a night less than the Sofitel next door which isn't any better. The rooms are across the road but in a lovely tropical garden setting. The beach was very nice and the staff very helpful.... More

This is a great place to stay for a relaxed vacation with comfortable rooms, landscaped grounds, a pool, a bar, and an oceanfront dining room - all at an affordable price. It was way cheaper than Bora Bora's other chain hotels because the Novotel's rooms are across the road from its beach facilities. Other hotels, such as the next-door Sofitel... More
