« True paradise »

Staff went above and beyond our expectations to make our stay that much better. We loved our stay at the Sofitel, management gave us a complimentary upgrade on our arrival. Had a bottle of champagne in our room. We loved the daily macaron delivery during turn down service, they made me fresh flower crowns and leis for my hubby and I. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Great Polynesian dinner show. I celebrated my 40th birthday there and the staff made it so special singing and playing the ukulele then putting their shell necklaces around my neck. Best service we have ever had! Excellent food at the private island. We will definitely be coming back.

« Beautiful place, great activities, very nice room »

Posted Jan 6, 2019 Property was really clean, great beach, overall friendly staff. The guys working at the water activities both were great! Our favorite part was the couple of cats roaming around the hotel gardens and bar. It added sweetness to the hotel :) The things we did not like: one of us is vegan and there was very little options. Especially when they had buffet dinners. Also, the bar staff was overall unfriendly and extremely slow. Also, it would have been nice if waiters came to the pool and served drinks there. Hated getting out of the pool and asking the bartender for a drink, and getting a “give me some time” reply. Especially when the bar was virtually empty.

« A fabulous family holiday »

The place and the staff made our holidays unique. Frane, Heiland, Teaporo, the amazing Ginette and all the staff made us feel special and gave us the Polynesian welcome. This trip was a great human experience, and we cannot wait to come back. Our baby girl is still smiling when seeing the staff in our pictures.

« Great place in Bora Bora »

We were on our honeymoon. There was Champagne and other goodies waiting for us in the room. Which was great. We loved the macarons that the hotel placed in our rooms every night.

« This was a beautiful property with wonderful staff but there was a big unwanted surprise at the end. »

Allow me to begin with the great things first. Your property is stunning and your staff, Ono, Benjamin and others were amazing. I loved my garden bungalow too. Breakfast was wonderful and the BBQ with Tahitian dancers was great. Now the bad... I noticed when I got home that there was a $225.00 charge for transportation from the airport to the resort. I assumed that my partner had requested this, he said no he had not. When we arrived at the airport in Bora Bora, I saw my name on a board as we left the airport so we boarded the boat which took us to the hotel. We were not aware that there would be such an exorbitant charge for such a small trip. We had already been told that a shuttle would take us to the island and from there it would be approximately $40.00 to the hotel by taxi. I think guest should be made aware of the price. We felt completely taken advantage of in this way. We travel abroad about three to five times annually. This has never happened to us. We do plan to return to French Polynesia in the near future, but this will affect my decision to stay at Sofitel.

« Unforgettable memories »

From the boat ride from the airport to the hotel, to the available early check in (so much needed after an overnight flight!), to the rich breakfast buffet and staff's smiles, the little beach and turquoise water, all are now memories my daughter and I will treasure for ever. Thank you, merci beaucoup, Maururu

This was the first time in our travels staying at a resort. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful our experience was. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The location was great and withing walking distance to many other areas in Bora Bora. Overall, we had an amazing time during our stay.

« Another very enjoyable stay at this resort. »

From the welcome we received at Bora Bora Airport to the time we left it was another great experience that I am sure we will plan to return and enjoy again, but after the renovations are done. We did however learn on the first day to not plan a late breakfast, it is about the only thing that we were dissapointed with, there was very little left to chose from and some dishes were not as they should have been. The staff generally are very friendly and efficient. The concierge is very good and makes sure you get what you need when it comes to rental cars and outside restaurants.

A complimentary shuttle to vaitape once or twice a day. A full time bartender. We enjoyed the more personable approach of a smaller resort. Very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Our bungalow was roomy and well cleaned daily, loved the large shower.

Mr A. M. R. Couples - 17/08/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Heavenly! the staff was so welcoming! Virgini at the front desk was wonderful throughout our stay! Tania escorted us to our room and was so pleasant every interaction! Pipi at breakfast i love her! Martha for dinner and the bar so sweet! I didn't find a section throughout the survey to add this but the only one i didn't score 100 on was the accommodations because we didn't have hot water for 3 days of our 5 day trip. In the end they provided a room that had water so that was perfect. The water temperature was not unbearably cold so it wasn't the end of the world. Also not 100 score on rewards program because its now 17 days after my stay and i booked directly and my points haven't been credited to my account which is a significant amount of points. I was being patient not being "that guest"to freak out over the points and assumed they would update but they have not.
