« bungalow with partial ocean view »

wonderful welcome at airport and upon arrival but would not use word 'luxury' as hotel does - would classify as 3-star venue > seems run-down as broken/dated items are not being fixed/replaced (ex. frayed and marked robe and towels in room, rusted mirror in unit, broken and stained white beach loungers, doors missing slats, worn-out billiards table in restaurant) considering cost of accommodations; little storage space in room but comfy slippers provided; Polynesian show with buffet dinner very good but poor set-up to view performers; wonderful staff

« Trip of a Lifetime »

PROS: met some really great people. Nuuvai, Nelson, the lady that had the tiger eye bracelet, miss dora the taxi lady. the boat drivers. the food was excellent. great spa services. went to church. loved the tours and aqua bike. CONS: housekeeping stopped being really good the last 3 days despite $5 tip everyday. geckos and beetles were in the room. the front dest stopped having increments of change really necessary to shop and tip the last 5 days. claiming to only have large bills. sometimes they act like they can't speak English at all. mostly we talked to 2 people at time. Nuuvai always understood. she helped us the most and the Best. Annabella was good with information but neglected follow through on 3 separate occasions. misunderstandings of excursions are Never good on a once in a lifetime trip. vbryant

« Beautiful place to stay when you are on your honeymoon »

The location was absolutely beautiful. If you were not happy to stay at the resort all day, you had the opportunity to go on the streets by walking/scooter/taxi or renting a car as it was right behind the resort. The staff was very helpful and super friendly. The food was quick pricey, additionally so were the activities - but it was worth it for the once in a lifetime experience.

Very nice hotel, was just a pity that the weather was bad that week. Hotel has a great breakfast and the staff was very accomodating. Rooms were very nice with many amenities. Nothing lacking and if there was sun it would have been amazing.

« Fantastic »

People were so kind food was excellent the room in perfect conditions but the internet/ wifi was so poor I was impressed that the connection was that bad it disconnected all the time and was so slow I was unable to do a call before 10pm and during the day it was almost impossible to connect

Bora Bora has been on my bucket list for about 50 years. It was everything I dreamed about and hoped it would be. The Sofitel was perfect for myself and my daughter. We will be back!!!

« Excellent! »

We loved our stay at Sofitel Marara! Our beach front bungallow was modern, well kept, air conditioned and still kept in style with the traditional Tahitian look. A big thank you to Tania, who, knowing we were Peruvian, spoke to us in Spanish and fulfilled our every request with a smile, she was simply charming. The only thing that we think has room for improvement is the quality of the food at the buffet dinner, while the attention of the staff was great, the food lacked character taste-wise and we belief it didn't align correctly with the price we paid for it. The dance show was lovely, but the food was a letdown. Breakfast and lunch were great, though. The beach felt private and almost all to ourselves, with coral and loads of fish to watch. The day pass to the Private Island was great, lunch was delicious, we snorkeled all around it, it was an otherworldly experience we will treasure forever. Thank you for making our dreams come true in Bora Bora!

« Not worth your money »

Most of The staff was nice, but only The overwater bungalow and The two young women at activity board (consierge) got 4 stars. Wifi only worked, when visiting Private Island, food was mediocre, except for Private Island. Bar employees turned their back on you and If you managed to get a drinkin, it was mere water with sugar and lime not even slightlest resemblance of actual drinks. You should put then to study bartending or get one. In my bill there was more than 13 000 cfp of somebody else's bills.

We were celebrating our honeymoon in Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort (2.8.-8.8.). Our holiday was phenomenal: good food, great views and suprisingly we got upgraded to Sofitel Private Island, because our room's telephone wasn't working(overwater bungalow no. 52). You maked our honeymoon even greater. Service was good and spa threatments was The Best thing ever!!!!! Thank you all xxx Irene N. & Marko Vähämäki

« A wonderful overall experience; we did not want to leave. »

By the way, we received an upgrade and stayed at the Private Island. We were met on the dock with a ukulele serenade and coconut milk. Our bungalow was beautifully decorated with palms/hibiscus. The hostess showed us to our room and showed us how to operate the safe for any valuables. Towels were always replenished. Loved the romantic dinner. The breakfast buffet was ample; staff was attentive. Dinner was good and staff was attentive. Improvements: Bungalow floor should be swept. Bar tables should be wiped clean after each use.

« We loved staying at your resorts in Tahiti and now I can say I can cross this of my bucket list »

We loved the service in Moorea and the stay in Bora Bora, was not as enjoyable as the service in the restaurant on the private island was less than pleasant as a lot of the help did not understand English and it seamed that this was their first day on the job. Perhaps, for some of them, it was, I don;t know.

« Not value for money. We would not return. »

Unfortunately our room was not ready at 2pm and we had to go back and check a couple of times to see if it was ready despite us being told one of the staff would come and find us. The woman who initially checked us in was very friendly and helpful. Our group had four rooms. For one room we had booked twin beds for our two teenagers and this was not available which we were unhappy about. They did bring in another bed however it was a rollaway for a child and the person that was meant to sleep in this bed was over 6 feet so this bed was completely unsuitable. We had to ask them twice to take this bed away. The first minibar was free which was great after a long hot day. The rooms were spacious and the shower pressure was strong. However the shower was blocked, the toilet had to fixed twice in one room, and the main sliding door had to be fixed in our daughters room as it could not lock which was worrying. We fixed the air conditioning unit in one room as the fan made a loud noise on the first night and kept the person staying in there awake. Overall we would have expected this maintenance to be done at such a high priced hotel. You would expect these maintanance issues in a backpackers hostel not a four star hotel. Also the staff needed to be followed up in some instances for this work to be done. One of the beach loungers outside our beach buree was broken. For the price you would expect each beach buree to have their own loungers rather than having to hunt for loungers on the beach and move them to the front of your own buree. The staff saw me doing this and didn't come to help.. Meals at the hotel were very expensive. We found this to be the same on Moorea. This was disappointing for a family holiday. The breakfasts were good.though. When we caught a cab from town to the hotel we were charged a rate. When we asked the hotel to book us a cab back into town after our stay they tried to charge us nearly double and said they only used one cab company. We had to put alot of pressure on for them to book another cab company who would give us the same rate as the first company on arrival. We felt the hotel was trying to rip us off. Cabs on Bora Bora are some of the most expensive in the world from our experience. The price by water taxi to the airport was ridiculous. We had just spent a week on a private yacht charter and the price to take us all to the airport by boat was equivalent to nearly a half day ratee on the yacht. Again, this was a rip off and left us feeling as if we had to search for cheaper solutions..The free ferry from town to the airport was ideal. Overall we were very disappointed with our stay and would not return to this hotel. We had an excellent stay at our next hotel on Moorea at a much cheaper rate. The staff were more helpful and the facilities were much better including the snorkelling off the beach.
