A too short overnight at the Marara Beach, in a seaview bungalow with everything you could wish for! In room hot pot with coffee/tea, stocked mini bar, and a great buffet breakfast. Lunch in the bar/restaurant was likewise delicious. Prices are somewhat high (higher than US anyway) but food was all great! Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beach at...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 February 2017

I cannot rec this place enough. We stayed in a private hut at the end of the dock on the island off of the hotel. You'd think being on the 'island ' would be inconvenient, but no. The second you (and often only you) hit the dock a motor boat arrives to take you to the main island. In your...

We came off a cruise and purchased a day pass at the Sofitel for 15000 francs for 2 adults and 2 children. This entitled us to use the resort facilities including the pool, towel use, kayaks and snorkeling gear. No internet access included. We were also given the choice of a main meal and dessert or main meal and entree....

LANGUAGE: The staff at the check-in counter speak little to no English. The main language is French and Tahitian. You need to learn many common words, like "water". ACTIVITIES: We signed up for the main event "Romantic Dinner and Dancers" involving sunset with champagne, fancy dinner, and native dancers. We arrived in proper outdoor clothing and were told the activity...

This is a wonderful hotel, but we were not notified until arrival that our over-water bungalow was not available. They did a decent job giving us other accommodations and provided meal vouchers to make up for the inconvenience. Still, I thought it was a little deceiving not to tell us until we arrived. The place, itself, was beautiful and very...

French Polynesia and especially Bora Bora is also a very emotional destination with a lot of expectations involved, so this review might be slightly more personal and subjective than others.

Staff very friendly and polite but the resort is old and in need of refurbishment. The door to our bungalow needed the strength of Schwartzenegger to get open and we had only one key between us. The breakfast was very good. Mostly the prices are too high for this quality of resort.
