My experience was great! I did like that no kids were allowed on the island under a certain age. It made the time even more calming.

We had a wonderful experience. We stayed 8 nights and felt very comfortable (the bed was great, and a nice shower), and well taken care of. We will always be grateful for the early check-in and late check-out. Staff was helpful and friendly. Based on our positive experience we would definitely return!

« Heaven on Earth »

Most amazing experience ever! The private island was so beautiful, clean, quiet, relaxing - we absolutely enjoyed our stay. While most stay 5 nights or less (so we've been told) - our 8 night stay was well worth it. Truly a magnificent resort. The staff was amazingly friendly, pleasant, courteous! A special thank you to Inga - who greeted and welcomed upon our arrival and assisted us with arranging reservations, etc. She was a delight to work with. Thank you Sofitel Private Island for making our first Bora Bora trip a memorable one! Bora Boar is truly heaven on earth!

« A Dream Come True! »

Sofitel Private Island in Bora Bora is the perfect place to relax! We like the small resort feel. It is also an awesome place to snorkel. We snorkeled everyday right off of our overwater bungalow and at the Coral Gardens. It was our best snorkeling experience ever! The food is good and the staff is friendly and helpful. We kayaked around the island and went paddle boarding. There is a free shuttle to the main island that we used a lot. We highly recommend staying here!

« Great location & hotel, some specifics less than expected for first-class hotel »

Amazing location, great snorkling is right there, wonderful little beaches, amazing breakfast location, swimming from over water bungalow is the best way to start a day! Staff were all great, instant service, smiles and greetings everywhere you go. It's an isolated island you can walk and wade around, but it's an easy 5 minute boat trip to the mainland. We never waited more than a few minutes for the boat. Also, the mainland Sofitel where the boat drops you off has a nice pool, bar, restaurant, and boat rentals. Avis will pick you up there to rent a car or scooter (best way to go around island, forget the expensive tours). Downside - bathroom plumbing is way below 1st class standards, shower is blah, air conditioning is cheesy wall-mounted unit that blew freezing air on the bed until I hung a towel over it. Also, the shower and changing room promised for use after checkout was not so pleasant, hot and steamy, floor wet, exposed toilet, and no setup to make it easy to change into fresh clothes.

« Incredible honeymoon at a fantastic hotel »

We recently spend a week on the private island for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! We love snorkeling and swimming so was a perfect location for us as there was coral straight out from our over water bungalow and an amazing snorkeling location a 5min kayak away. The staff were all so friendly and made us feel welcomed. The food at the hotel was great! We ate there nearly every night and tried every main on the menu. We loved the most that it wasn't like every other resort that had a crazy amount of villas and people, the private island was limited to other couples and we barely saw any the whole time and the ones we did see were also very nice. It was very quiet, great look out we went up to most nights to have a beer and watch the sun set. The rooms were spacious and everything you need to be comfortable. Overall I wouldn't have wanted to spend my honeymoon anywhere else... the sofitel private island was absolutely perfect for us! Thank you sofitel for an incredible week and experience

« Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island was a small slice of heaven!! »

We spent an amazing 6 nights at the Sofitel. The staff was lovely. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was under reconstruction so they served our breakfast in our room. What an absolute treat! We had an overwater bungalow that was beautiful. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, they kept our mini fridge stocked daily but the joy was in the view from the overwater deck. The outdoor shower was great as we spent all day in the water!! The Coral Gardens are on the backside of the island and the snorkeling was some of the best I've ever experienced. We didn't feel a need to take a lagoon tour as all the tours stopped at the Coral Garden so to be able to just walk into the water and swim there is an absolute plus. It's very simple to go over to the main island. You request the boat and within 5-10 minutes they are on the way to pick you up. From the Sofitel on the main island, it's very easy to access Metira Beach and a lot of local restaurants. This is a small hotel. I believe only 31 rooms which mean only 62 guests so it was quiet and private. I can't say enough great things about this hotel!! This was my "trip of a lifetime" and Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island was my dream hotel.

« If it were not for the changed accommodations with no notice, I would have rated higher. »

Upon arrival, we were assigned to a room that was not over the water. This trip was planned two years in advance specifically to stay in an overwater bungalow for a family special occasion. There was no advanced notice that Marara over water bungalows would be completely closed, only that they would be under construction. We were never notified about the closure. Although we were ultimately moved after 2 days to an overwater bungalow on the private island, we had to endure the hassle of packing up all our things and that took away from the rest and relaxation planned for our stay. The reception, room service, and boat captains were all very nice and friendly.

« I was disappointed upon arrival. »

I am writing this experience since I also am in the hospitality industry back in the United States (Mammoth Lakes, Ca-skiing destination in the winter and hiking, biking, fishing in the summer). I remained calm through it all as I didn't want to be one of those "difficult" customers. No one appreciates that. I didn't demand for anything but only asked for compensation or resolution to the situation. Waiting or wasting half my trip before any action was taken was not appreciated at all. Believe me, if it happened at my place of employment, there would be screaming/ranting customers in my face. This is what took place: I booked an overwater bungalow and upon arrival, I was placed on a beach view bungalow looking at the overwater bungalows. It was later explained that we were upgraded to the private island which was to make up for not having an overwater bungalow. This is only after we asked why there were changes made on our reservation. We were never informed ahead of time that our booking was not going to be honored and the alternatives weren't fair. We were a group of 7 and we were separated by having 4 from our group transferred to the private island. Here were the alternatives given: *we can stay in an overwater bungalow for 1 night but still had to pay $300 extra for it since it's on the private island. Even if our original confirmation was for an overwater bungalow. Then we'd have to go back to the beach view bungalow *go back to the main island and stay on a beach bungalow and was offered a refund for the difference but no one can tell us what the amount was Apparently, the manager was out of town on a conference and I was not attended to until I was finally able to speak with the manager. I had to call him myself as no one has approached me. It's disappointing knowing that you paid for an overwater bungalow on the most beautiful island in Tahiti and be treated like I should be appreciative because I was "upgraded to the private island". Even if it's not in an overwater bungalow and was separated from our group. We did notify our travel agent and they also claimed they were not told of the changes that were made. We were eventually transferred to an overwater bungalow for 2 nights of our 4 night stay, by the manager. Even if they tried making the mends, no one can turn back time and give us the 2 lost nights. A true upgrade would have been being transferred to the private island in an overwater bungalow upon arrival. Not shoving us into a bungalow looking at the overwater bungalows and telling us it was an upgrade. The island itself was amazing. I do want mention names of the employees that made our stay bearable. I do regret that I did not get the name of the shorter lady at the private island. I did not see her name tag but she was joyful! Made us laugh... Veronique: was always cheerful and spoke to us every time she saw us John: from the Spa, great service, great treatment and a great smile that was contagious Tania: Took great care of our family on the main island Julien: Being on the job for 2 weeks, he was accommodating and treated our family on the main island like his own I have been more thorough than the usual review received as I want the Sofitel Marara Resort to thrive. It's a great resort on a stunning island! I just couldn't believe that nothing was explained to us upon arrival and did not receive any notifications of changes before our arrival. We know we booked through a travel agent but if the travel agent company was not notified then the clients are left in the dark. That reduces customers returning to the resort and booking directly. Thank you for your time in reading this.-Marilou M.
