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...

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...

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. Upon arrival , the island greated us with loads of rain and our pilot needed six attempts to land the plane as clouds of rain and dust nearly touched the...

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.

We were staying at the private island but came across many times to go eat at their restaurant. We loved the way they treated us there and the way they were so caring. The service was exceptional. The waitresses went above and beyond the duty of their jobs. These people are so kind, we have never seen anything like this...

We stayed here four days during our honeymoon and I wished I picked somewhere else to stay. The staff was great very friendly and super nice, but friendly staff is to be expected in Bora Bora.
