Trip was part of our group trip in late october 2012, so we had the whole island to our group.
Over water bungalow was great , like most over water properties are, this one felt slightly aged, but was good enough definitely.
But it is the people of this Sofitel that makes the difference. Starting with Didier, to Giovanni, to Tita to Catherine, and the best of them all Jean Louis. Also the rest of your team Didier (who remembered to give me his business card at departure, though he forgot to credit me my club accor points)
The food is excellent, the ambience superb, but hey , this is Bora Bora, so the views and the people are always superb.
The ride by boat from the airport may be a bit long, but if you want service and privacy, this is the place to choose folks.
There is also a free boat ride to the other Sofitel property if you want a pool. If not just dive in from your overwater room and snorkel. Be surprised by what you see just under your room. Really.
We will definitely return soon for another visit Didier. A bientot.
