What a great place. Sure is expensive in Bora Bora but this is an excellent place and a good value respectively. Great view and awesome experience from our bungalow over the water. There is a small beach area with kayaks available as well. If we...More
This was our return trip to Bora Bora and to Mai Tai. This time we had an overwater bungalow. It was great. I can’t recommend this hotel enough. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the perfect location so we could walk...More
I was surprised with this beautiful hotel. We had a bungalow room by the beach, very spacious and clean. Also the bathroom was big and a good shower. The view from the sea and the sound of the waves, makes this room a very enjoyable...More
The hotel and the staff were excellent!!! We felt as if we were the only one's there. They spoke to us by our names, knew exactly what room number we were in, and were always friendly. We stayed in Overwater Bungalow #103. What a great...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.
