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...

My husband and I stayed here for 8 days, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The bungalows are spacious, and well set up. The beach was just gorgeous....coral with tropical fish, just a few feet out. Lounge chairs on the beach, was nice. The pool was set up against a fantastic view of the Lagoon. The food was good here, although we...

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...

We had stayed in one of the farther out bungalows at the end, it was about 7-8ft deep, wasn't close to touching the bottom while snorkeling. There were also tons of fish!

Our bungalow had a mini fridge included. I know Feb is considered the rainy season. We booked tours right through the concierge. They were excellent and worth the money. We did an all day water excursion that included swimming with rays, a coral garden, swimming with the sharks, a great picnic lunch on an island and a tour of the lagoon. The operators were great and provided lots of ukulele music and entertainment. A great day! We also took an island tour and the guide was an 80 year old man who knew lots of history. Interesting look at life on Bora Bora. Go to the private island too. It is very nice there. We did the romantic dinner on the beach and it was very nice. Enjoy!

“All rooms are good because they're all bungalows! It's just a question of being over the water, on the beach or in the garden.”
