We enjoyed our stay in Bora Bora. 6 nights was a little too long. That's not a reflection on Sofitel; there's just not a lot to do in Bora Bora! The white sand beach is clean , the water warm and the setting ideal for relaxation. Equipment for water activities such as kayaks, snorkelling equipment, outrigger canoes, beach towels etc. is all free to use [unlike Sofitel Moorea where you pay for everything !] . More flexibility in short trips just for snorkelling, without having to include other 'attractions' would be a benefit. The meals were all of very good quality, fresh and tasty; with a good variety to choose from. If you are watching the francs eat in the bar area - cheaper and usually larger portions ! All the staff were consistently friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and fitted with fans as well as air-con.
The location is exquisite and compensates for most of the critisisms. But the property is a little tired round the edges and in need of some maintenance. Service, particularly at breakfast time is lithargic. Bar service also left something to be desired. That said, we had a wonderful time in paradise. Contrary to Lonely Planet's 2012 information, a charge of $70 is imposed for visits to the "private island."
Iaorana from Bora Bora ! Thank you for taking time to share your opinion, which is very important for us. We are very delighted that you appreciated your stay with us. The last renovations were made in 2008, and all our team make its best to maintain our resort in it's best condition. The access to the Sofitel Private Island costs around 65€, with lunch on the beach included, boat transfert, access to the private beach and facilities, access to the Mont Chauve ( top of the Island ) for an astonishing view on Bora Bora's main Island, the lagoon and the islands of Taha'a and Raiatea. You also have a privileged access to the most beautiful and unique coral garden in Bora Bora. Thank you so much and come back soon ! Maururu !
Just an awesome trip , the resort was the perfect size and location . great over the water bungalow ,friendly service from start to finish !!!! The location and area were exactly what we were looking for!!!
I have stayed at many Sofitel hotels and I found this one disappointing. Firstly I arranged for a boat transfer with the hotel from the airport and had to wait one hour for the boat. I found the resort understaffed . I was also disappointed with the breakfasts. It always looked as if I was the last person to have breakfast no matter what time I went. Housekeeping should have spent more time in making up the rooms. There was always something that had been forgotten to be replaced. All these factors are very unusual for a Sofitel hotel.
