“Skinny Dipping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Spent a few days chilling in the Presidents Overwater Villa, dipping my toes in the sea while eating fish curry and sipping on a Flaming Lamborghini. This is heaven!
Went scuba diving and made some new friends in the water. My armbands kept losing air but the colours are amazing.

Got to wake my ladies up now as our private jet leaves in a few hours and they still haven't packed my bags.

I will be back!
I have marked my spot!

Just checked out of the Hilton. It was a very good experience and it was a beautiful place to spend our honeymoon. Starting off the staff are very friendly and very helpful. Everyone is just so sweet and polite. The resort got it all, you can book all the bora bora excursions in the lobby area! The activities hut near the hotel is a must go, you can speak to Oliver there and book the free hobbie cat ride and also from there to pick up the kayaks etc. the spa is just Perfect! The food wasn't thattt good but the breakfast was perfect. There is free Internet in the lobby and they have their business center! The rooms are a bit quite old but they were great and the bed was very comfortable. A big disappointment was that I booked through a travel agent in Lebanon where I live and my credit card wasn't ready so impossible to book through Hilton.com so I just paid it all cash in the agency. They did not add my nights to my hhonours account while other hotels added for my wife loyalty program accounts she has with other hotels even if she booked not through online. Anyway, it was a great experience, it was a beautiful stay. Hope you all enjoy your stay as well! Happy planning!

There really is no place in the world like Bora Bora. It is so beautiful. Staying in an overwater bungalow is like nothing else. We loved our room and our deck. There was lizard poop in the room, which is gross, but I felt forewarned by Trip Advisor so I tried to get over it. And the bed has a canopy so it doesn't fall on you while you're sleeping. Our bungalow was the last one in our row so we had a lot of privacy (don't forget to look up at the stars at night). We liked the pool, the boats and the snorkeling. As soon as you get there sign up for the free hobie-cat tour at the pool. We did the Costco Travel excursion for Shark and Ray feeding. It was incredible! Highly recommend. The downside of the Hilton is that we didn't like the food at all and we didn't have a good experience with the service at the location. Practically every meal was annoying and disappointing. It kind of put a damper on this leg of our trip. But it was Bora Bora, the awesome room and location made up for it. We did the million dollar view massages. This was also so relaxing and something you can only experience here. Highly recommend. Also we paid for the dinner on the beach but it got rained out and moved to the gazebo. The food was mostly terrible. But it was still super beautiful and we had a really special romantic time together celebrating our honeymoon. I'd say if you are in Moorea - do the romantic dinner there because the food and service will be better. I think next time we'll still do Moorea and Bora Bora, however I think I'll look into a different resort for our next stay. We booked the whole trip through Costco Travel and felt like we got a good deal and the travel (ferry, planes, buses, boats) was simple and taken care of through them. On a side note we traveled at the end of April it rained ever night about 5:00pm to 8:00pm give or take and the sun went down around 6:00pm. Not sure if there is a better time of year to go. Just saying. Bora Bora was very humid and had tons of mosquitoes. Bring bug spray.

My husband and I spent 7 nights here and it far exceeded our expectations. We had read that there were some rooms with exceptional views so we went to the front desk to ask about getting one of those rooms. He informed us that they were already booked, but told us that we could upgrade to the royal suite or presidential suite for some nights instead. My husband is a Hilton Honors Diamond member so he explained that while you cant use your points to upgrade to the rooms, if you paid to upgrade, you would receive double points for upgrading. It was expensive to upgrade to them, but we dont regret the decision at all. We stayed for 2 nights in the OWB royal suite, 2 nights in the standard OWB, and the final night in the OWB presidential suite. We loved having different views each night. Some had excellent views of the mountain, some of the sunset, some had better access to snorkeling, but all of them were wonderful inside!
We used AAA travel agency to book our honeymoon and she got travel to and from the airports included, as well as breakfast and dinners included. After hearing about everybody say the airport transport and meals were expensive, this was a huge relief for us not to have to worry about it.
We used the hotel to book our excursions, and yes, they were expensive, but we had friends who stayed at another hotel there and they did not enjoy their cheaper excursions. So we realized it was worth the extra price to get better things to do.
In all of the rooms they have this song that plays in heavy rotation on the tv. I asked the front desk what the song was because I liked it, and no one knew what I was talking about. If any one knows what I'm talking about please let me know!

Room Tip: Ask! If we had not talked to the front desk about different rooms, we would have never known you co...

Thank you very much for your comments! I was pleased to read that you had the opportunity to experience the different views offered by our accomodations over water! You however have missed the view you get from our bungallows over the hill! Incredible view from higher up of the whole coast at a 180 degrees!

We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back and will keep on searching the name of your, now, favorite song!

We went here for our honeymoon and spent 8 nights and could not have been happier. I literally almost cried when we left.

We did our research before going so we understood that drinks etc would be expensive, so were not surprised or disappointed by this. Sometimes the service was a bit slow, but we had also anticipated we'd be on what we refer to as 'island time' in Bora Bora, so we were happy to wait longer than we would in Sydney for drinks etc to be delivered. It's not like we had anywhere to rush off to anyway, and the view is so amazing from every point on the island that it's really not a hardship to wait a bit longer than you would in every day life.

The resort is wonderful, the staff are friendly and for the most part the service is great, even if it does take a bit longer than in a big city. Our over water bungalow was spacious and fabulous, the beauty of the water and resort surrounds defy belief and the inclusion of free water activities was an added bonus and another way to enjoy the scenery and marine life.

We thought the food was great - we booked half board so our breakfast and dinner was included every day so we just paid for drinks and lunch if we wanted it, but often we indulged so much at the awesome breakfast buffet we didn't need to eat again until dinner. The 3 restaurant options were all great and it seems no expense is spared when you look at the chef's use of ingredients such as lobster, seafood and truffles. Not everything was to our taste, but that doesn't mean it wasn't good! I imagine if you didn't book the meal plan then eating at the hotel regularly would be expensive, but as our dinners were included (3 courses each night), we thought it was great. The steaks and burgers were especially good - these guys know how to cook a steak which we often struggle to find in Sydney!! The buffet nights were great, even if they did incur an additional cost, and the quality of the food at these nights was beyond any buffet we have experienced - I have to admit we flinched a bit at the thought of a buffet dinner before we attended, but the quality was wonderful. The entertainment was also great - the acoustic band and singer were so talented, and who doesn't love a Coldplay cover when it's done well?!

I cannot stop raving about this holiday to everyone and I think those people with negative comments need to slow down and take stock of where they were and what they've experienced for what it is - it's an island holiday, possibly the most beautiful island in the world - not a trip to NYC! - set your sights accordingly and enjoy this place rather than letting irrelevant irks ruin what is a dream holiday.

This was without a doubt one of the best holidays either of us have ever had, and that makes settling back into every day life pretty difficult!

Magical, paradise-like surroundings, excellent accommodations! On the negative side, don't go there for a culinary experience; the food sucks, which is actually not at all common to the Hilton quality offered at other locations.

The resort is much more than I envisioned. The coral reef was under our cottage. The view from our room was the best. We walked the whole resort and every where we went I could not believe how beautiful the resort/island was.
The room/cottage was amazing, the weather was beautiful we did not need the A/C.
My wife is wondering when will be back again.
