There are two different Bora Bora "images"; the unrealistic one the world portrays Bora as, and the one we just learned, through MaiTai Polynesia, Bora truly is. If you want to experience the real deal and see how the island life goes from day to...More
We stayed 4 nights in room 32. From Bora Bora airport there is a ferry to the island, from there transport to the hotel, arranged by them, no mention of the cost. At checkout we were charged about US$ 60 for 2 people. WIFI only...More
Bora Bora is a magical place. Don't ruin your time here by staying at this hotel. The first clue was at the airport when this was the only hotel without staff to welcome you and direct you to your shuttle. That's fairly minor but indicative...More

It all depends on what you're planning to do and where you're planning to eat. You can book excursions ahead of time and pay for those by credit card, so you'd just need cash for buying things at the local market (wine, beer, snacks, a baguette or croissants for breakfast?) or eating at the great little "snack" restaurants on Matira Beach (about $30 per person for lunch and a beer or cocktail). Also, a lot of places--even the local buses and taxis--accept U.S. dollars, so if you run out of XPF, use dollars. And don't bring a lot of cash and exchange it. Instead, use an ATM when you get to Papeete or Vaitape. The local bank will charge a fee and your U.S. bank will charge a fee, but if you take out 30,000 xpf (about US$300, then at least that fee is spread out over a larger amount so that gives you a good exchange rate.
