Customer review rating 4.6/5

Alessandra Couples - 17/08/2019 AccorHotels review

I don't even know where to start. This place is too good to be real. Friendly efficient staff, they come greet you when you arrive with flower necklace and say goodbye when you leave with shell necklace. This place is from heaven. The bungalows over the water are simply incredible, and you can see the crystal clear water from a little window on the floor of your bungalow.. mini bar included, they give you very nice welcome gifts , free canoe, free snorkeling equipment, a nice view up the hill where to watch sunset, OMG, words and pics cannot describe!

Ia Orana The whole team thanks you for your excellent feedback! We are delighted to learn that the kindness of our teams has helped to make your stay unforgettable. We are happy that your bungalow on stills charmed you, as well as the panoramic view of the crystal clear water of the lagoon. We are also delighted that you have appreciated the facilities provided throughout your stay and we hope to see you soon in the French Polynesia!

We really enjoyed our stay at Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Maciej Couples - 17/03/2019 AccorHotels review

We loved the size of the resort. Small and private being located on a island made a huge difference. Very kind and welcoming staff. I would like to mention two issues, one is the WiFi signal which was weak especially in over-water bungalows but also in the main area of the hotel. Second, the dinner menu was very poor, especially meat, seafood and pasta options. This should be definitely improved. At least it would be nice to have a different menus on different nights. And and Pizza :) Last thing is actually regarding jet-ski tour sold by Sofitel and organized by Matira Jet Company. Pick up was late 15 minutes, our jet-ski guide was very rude (which made the whole paradise experience go to ***. The tour should be 2hrs - as advartised, and we had only 1h 30min. Also, it was too many jet-ski's which made it difficult to keep the group together. On top of that we had 4 jet-ski's occupied with locals (probably owner friends - joining the tour for free). Unacceptable!!! Shame on the people running Matira jet. Overpriced and RUDE! Sofitel should look for a different company offering Jet-Ski tour.

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.

Silvia D. S. Couples - 10/01/2019 AccorHotels review

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.

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.

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Steven J. P. Couples - 15/10/2018 AccorHotels review

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.

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

Daniel Couples - 29/08/2018 AccorHotels review

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.
