« Beuteful location but needs renovation »

Location of the hotel is very good you are away on the island to enjoy peace and beuteful wiew. Main island is only 5min boat ride away from the main island and you can go any moment you wish. Staff was good especially local ladies. Rooms need a renovation and that is a fact.

« Room for improvement »

The place itself is amazing! But need some improvements . Usually bars are jolly and busy but not there! It was quiet, we had to ask for the drinks menu in the evening! Unbelievable Drinks itself were good, but looked like the staff was rushing home instead of get some money from the tourists. We ate outside of the resort but on the way back if it was music and crowd we’d definitely had a drink or two, but after first evening when we had to ask for a menu( still can’t believe it!) we just went straight to the room From the good side- young French staff were amazing, so helpful and smiley , that welcome party on the top of the hill was such a good idea! More suggestions- to get a toaster for breakfast area and to have a background music at the bar area at all time, something relaxing for the day and a little bit upbeat for the evening Anyway- it was a great stay, will definitely be back

« Poor experience »

Location was beautiful but we made a complaint, both verbally to reception and via email directly to the hotel regarding our TV that was not working, WIFI that was working on 5% of the time, breakfast buffet not being restocked in the last hour of the breakfast window, and the multiple geckos in our room and just had radio silence in return. Worst Sofitel I have stayed at.

« Trip of a lifetime. »

Everything was great as far as the overall experience. The staff was friendly, the rooms were nice, the location is beautiful. The one thing Inwould like to see is better breakfast options and maybe beach side service if you want to buy a drink or have some food. Other than that the trip was amazing.

« everything was perfect our expectations were exceeded to the highest level »

Picked Sofitel private Island for our one week honeymoon. From beginning to end the staff exceeded our expectations and made every part of our stay perfect!!! The cleanliness and sharp attention to detail was very noticeable, and the care that the staff put into their jobs was obvious but not fake but very genuine that everyone really cared and liked what they were doing.

Great service and clean rooms. The wifi needs to be improved so its more stable and wish the breakfast was fresher with more variety of food.

« View/Activities: 10. Food: 5 »

The private island is nice for snorkeling and overwater bungalows. However the food is much more limited and almost not worth being on the private island. My wife and I kept taking the small cereal boxes to get us through the day. A grocery market is a short walk on the main island- go to it.

Ia Orana and thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. We are happy to read that you have enjoyed the idyllic setting of our hotel and that you have fully enjoyed our beautiful lagoon. However we are sorry to hear that the catering did not satisfy you despite the fact that we can also enjoy our catering on our other hotel. We hope, however, to welcome you back to Polynesia! Maururu!

« A room full of cockroaches and a deplorable assistance and service... »

We arrived at the hotel, we had chosen this hotel for the pilotis, the view is really beautiful the surrounding is paradisiac and we appreciated the welcoming gifts. But the dream soon turned out as being a nightmare, when we discovered first 3 cockroaches (my husband had to catch them) and when we came back from dinner, almost 10 cockroaches more were in our room (huge and flying all over, alive plus we found some dead on the ground)... how romantic for our first night. So we went to the reception to explain our problem and the receptionist was not at all surprised, she hardly apologised and knew there was this problem of cockroaches invasion in the hotel. We had to beg her to change room as we could not sleep there... Finally we were moved in a basic room near the forest. The day after we had to wait and call the manager as we were staying 3 nights and had to find a solution for the following nights. First, we had to ask the reception to call her and insist that she comes at the Sofitel Private (she did not want to move from the Sofitel Moana and just wanted to solve the problem by phone). Then when we explained our situation she did not care at all. We had to call our agency to help us to find a solution. Finaly we moved to an other hotel (Intercontinental) where we were so much better, people were so nice with us even though this hotel is a 4* hotel it was a incomparable service with management always on sight to check that everything is going well. To resume we are very disappointed from the Sofitel private, where the service was so bad and unacceptable for a such hotel. First we payed so much for a night we did not appreciate at all, the hotel did not offer a commercial gesture. We never saw any manager around. Moreover we have had several bad reviews in Bora Bora from local people and excursions managers and confirmed that there was a problem with the hotel and many complains going on. We understand that in Polynesia we can encounter sometimes cockroaches but so many means that there is a real problem of cleanliness. Moreover, one week before our stay, a woman wrote a comment concerning many cockroaches in her room so we are not the only ones (she mentions pilots bungalow 118 To 120, we were in 112..) so there is a real invasion all over. Accor hotels group promises a good standard of services, quality and we want to report a true problem in this Sofitel Private where the standard is completely under a 5* hotel.

Ia Orana and thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the idyllic setting of our hotel and the welcome gifts. However we are sorry to hear that the room has been invaded by flying insects despite the preventive treatments we do. . After this incident, we hope that your end of stay went well on Bora Bora. We hope, however, to welcome you back to Polynesia! Maururu!

« Paradise in Paradise »

The Sofitel Private Island Resort was simply amazing! The atmosphere coupled with the incredible staff made it one of the most enjoyable vacations we've ever had. The property is beautifully laid out, and provides a most relaxing experience. And if that wasn't enough, the staff, especially the "breakfast crew," were always ready with a big smile, and a "la ora na!"

« Very Poor maintenance »

We rate our experience low because the the maintenance of the bungalow was very poor. Expected more from such an expensive and supposedly highly rated hotel. In the first bungalow we stayed there was a slat missing from the window so the bugs got in, an ant infestation by the side of the bed, a broken shower handle, and a massive termite problem which forced us to ask to be moved to another bungalow. In the tropics, a regular pest spraying schedule is essential which obviously was not done here. While not a maintenance issue, there was no duvet in the duvet cover and we had to ask for a blanket.

« Staying on the Sofitel Private Island in Bora Bora was one of the most memorable vacations of our life! »

We got married on the Sofitel Private Island in Bora Bora! It was magical! The individual attention given by all the staff in this exquisite and private setting was nothing short of magnificent. Delicious meals were made at our request by our wonderful chef and host Sacha (with a candle light dinner on the beach after our wedding) exquisite snorkeling was just a few swim strokes away in the Coral Garden behind the island, excursions and spa appointments were easily managed through the staff and the sensational views from the hilltop were beyond words. We will be back for our 1 year anniversary next year! We are counting the days.
