To be honest we almost had the perfect holiday unfortunately our garden bungalow flooded first day maybe lack of maintenance but Emma the receptionist quick to rectify the problem and upgraded us to a luxury garden bungalow with a bottle of champagne. The hurricane bar staff were so friendly had a laugh. Fantastic staff over all just made you feel so welcome always smiling always happy and so willing to help and plan your excursions so you have the best holiday ever. Had the most amazing Eco tour with Aro our tour guide who took us to swim with the stingrays and sharks he was just brilliant 10/10 Would so stay at the Sofitel marara beach again.

We had a wonderful time at the Sofitel Marara in Bora Bora. The staff were welcoming and always ready to help. We really enjoyed snorkeling in the coral gardens and kayaking across the beautiful lagoon. Every morning started with extensive breakfast offerings and gorgeous views. We especially appreciated the live music and Polynesian dancing offered most evenings. Thank you!

« My experience was extremely relaxing.  »

Enjoyed the amenities that were included. Wish food was more available throughout the day and night, instead of only at certain hours. Should cover food so flies do not land on it.

« Marara - worth every penny. »

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your resort. The staff was very accommodating and truly friendly. We felt tucked away from it all, perfect way to relish our honeymoon. The Polynesian dancers were wonderful and added an authentic feel to the pampered experience.

There are a number of maintenance issues at the property. Our bungalow door lock was broken and after having to walk back to reception 8 times to get new keys, and 2 technicians, we just left the room unlocked - it shouldn't be that difficult to fix. The staff were lovely and handled it well, but the point is, it shouldn't be an issue more than once or twice.

« Disappointed »

Totally soaked whilst transported on your provided transport from the airport - 40 minutes of hell. Poor response to our condition by your reception staff on arrival First room provided had a serious air cond leak requiring us to move. The second room provided (an hour later) also had a serious air cond leak requiring us to move The third room provided had a phone and TV that didn't work (subsequently replaced the same evening - first evening!) The restaurant food was not to the standard expected - food was often overcooked. Gardens were unkempt

Beautiful grounds and very friendly staff. Only improvements I can suggest is a faster check in process (very slow) and more "even" housekeeping. We had something different that was missed every day: no refills on coffee, mini bar not stocked, floor not swept, no refills on soap, etc.

Our stay was amazing. From the welcome to the goodbye. The staff very friendly and always helpful. Our only complaints were the WiFi reception and maybe the buffet breakfast should be a little bigger. But, overall a great experience and a beautiful location. Our lunch on the Private Island for my wife's birthday was spectacular and an experience we will remember forever.

Very relaxing and enjoyable, though the ticket system for hire of towels and equipment slightly confusing.

Excellent location - corals nearby, beautiful lagoon and beach, bungalows are pretty outside. The renovation has to complete so that inside it is as good as outside and add some luxury too. Staff was extremely helpful - the activity desk, the restaurant, Lola, room staff were very caring and helpful, reacting on all situations very adequately - 5 stars. The evening events and the food were good too. The only other thing that was a bit of an annoyance for us was the private island does not allow kids - why not during the day, when they just want to go to the coral garden?

I really enjoyed the resort. I appreciated the management great deal of care to making sure my husband and I had a fantastic time. Although I was disappointed we couldn't stay in the over the water bungalow. The management made great effort to make it up to us, which I am really grateful for. Thank you for the wonderful experience and my husband I had a great 5 year wedding anniversary. The experience is Bora Bora was a dream. We will definitely be staying at Sofitel property when we travel.

Lovely resort. Loved the pool area. Staff lovely too. Room number 11 was great - being at the end of the resort meant it was quiet & private. Rooms comfortable. Free water was great. Only reason for not getting a 10 was quality of dinner menu - expensive for the poor quality.

« Language, Activities, Maintenance, and Room »

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 had been cancelled because not enough people signed up. We were never told before. They offered us the dinner and nothing else then charged us $250. MAINTENANCE. The TV had an English news station but we could not find it. A so-called maintenance person came and spoke NO English. He did not have a clue how to find the new station. The remote worked fine, but he acted as if the remote was given new batteries then the remote would find the news station. Go figure. He then ran out the room with the original batteries and NEVER came back for 2 days. He left the TV very loud in French. I could not unplug the TV. Finally, I found some replacement batteries and was able to turn off the TV. ROOM: If you like lizards crawling all over the walls and getting into your stuff, you will really like the room.

Our staying was excellent. Everybody was very kind and helpful. Our rooms always clean and the garden meticulously taken care was beautiful. Always somebody was in the reception with a smile and the bartenders and servers at the bar or restaurant spoil us. Denise, who is the reception manager was available constantly. We are very lucky to have Denise, Mariana, Maui, Veronique, Brigitte, Annita, Anna, Fran, Pipi, Peggy, Vivianne, Louana, Tehina, Raita, Muriel, Mondy, Matha, Anna, Hitimoana, Tehei, Arii, Jean, Tina, Frank, and sorry if we forgot another person that make our staying in the Sofitel Marara so special. We miss you guys and thank you for everything.
