We had a great time at our stay in Sofitel Bora Bora. Good service and excellent staff. Started alredy when we were picked up at the airport, by boat, and brought to the Sofitel. Nice overwater bungalows, and with the breakfast included, we could not ask fore more.

Kandace D. Couples - 23/09/2019 AccorHotels review

While the landscape was amazing, the service at the hotel was shoddy. We were disappointed, in general. This was our honeymoon and the complications from the hotel caused us to worry. Additionally, they charged us for services we never received. Lastly, we were told o. Two occasions of events we wanted to plan had already been scheduled and we were not prepared to do the excursion. We were forced to hurry and it caused more stress for us. For example, we were scheduled to swim with sharks. We were told we were swimming g with the sharks a minute (8:46am) after we were supposed to be going. We missed a portion of the romantic dinner because we were not told what time to arrive. Completely ruined our vacation and we would like a credit to our account for all the mishaps.

The Island was small, but clean. I would have preferred more beach space. The only issue I had was the wi-fi seemed to be poor in our bungalow. Normally I wouldn't have cared but had a sick dog at home and couldn't communicate with my dog sitter, which caused me a lot of anxiety.

Ia Orana, Hello! We would like to thank you for your comments regarding your stay at Sofitel Bora Bora Bora Private Island. We are delighted to learn that our small private island has met your expectations. We are sincerely sorry for the problems concerning wifi, rest assured, we are taking good note of your feedback in order to improve the experience we provide to our customers. We hope to welcome you back to French Polynesia! Mauruuruuru! Concierge Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Lisa Couples - 21/09/2019 AccorHotels review

We absolutely loved the intimacy of the Sofitel Private Island. It had a very small, home away from home feel to it. No crowds anywhere, anytime we wanted to swim or kayak it was available and had a private element. The only thing that we were not satisfied with was the food. If you are staying on a private island, and it is your goal to stay there, you have to have more variety and availability throughout the day. On several days, we asked for appetizers which were not available until 5pm or they simply didn't have them. A more complete menu throughout the day-tacos, fruit and cheese plates, crudités with dip? We traveled off the island for dinners because of the lack of variety.

Ia Orana, Hello! The entire Sofitel Bora Bora Bora Private Island team would like to thank you for your good feedback. We are delighted to learn that your stay at our establishment went well and that our private and heavenly place has exceeded your expectations. Rest assured, we take good note of your kind comments to improve the experience provided to our customers. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Pearl of the Pacific. Mauruuruuru!

Rik P. Couples - 03/09/2019 AccorHotels review

We had an excellent stay, rooms were very good, and housekeeping was excellent. Restaurant area staff very welcoming and attentive. Breakfast food was really good. Bar food was equally as good. Ala carte was good and had good vegetarian choices, however the price for the vegetarian food was too high compared to the meat and fishdishes on offer. Buffet was not very good, we had overcooked prawns and lamb,with no hot vegetarian options. We would expect such an exclusive establishment to cater for vegetarians better.

Ia Orana, Goodmorning Mr. P., The entire Sofitel Bora Bora Bora Private Island team would like to thank you for your kind feedback. We are delighted to learn that the reception, restaurant and housekeeping teams have made your stay unforgettable. We are also pleased to learn that the breakfast and restaurant food has satisfied you. We are sorry to know that the buffet dinner disappointed you, we take good note of it in order to improve the quality of our buffets and vegetarian choices. We hope to see you again in one of our hotel in the sunny French Polynesia. Mauruuru roa ! Concierge Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

The airport greeting was so nice. She even helped me find my lost luggage and had it delivered to me a few hours later. The hotel greeting top notch! The staff was so accommodating and informative. Rachel was so professional and helpful. Lea helped us see so many great things. She is truly exceptional!

Ia Orana, thank you for your very good comment! We are delighted that your stay was up to your expectations and that the hospitality and professionalism of our team, especially Léa and Rachel, made your holiday more than pleasant!

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Richard H. Couples - 18/07/2019 AccorHotels review

The hotel is probably not the most modern or perfectly presented place compared with new resorts but we liked its style and more natural appearance. Staff were friendly, we were well looked after with a much appreciated room upgrade and late checkout. Good assistance with booking trips and help with cancelling where weather was poor. The setting of the hotel is exceptional. The arrangements for meals between the bar and restaurant was a little confusing (opening times for bar meals for example) - the 4 July American buffet was poor, more expensive than the main restaurant menu but very basic food - hot dogs, burgers, Chili CC etc. Suggest all classic cocktails are included in happy hour as the 'black dot' system wasn't immediately clear. Turn down service with small gift of sweets was appreciated but it didn't seem to happen every night.

Dear Richard H., We thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to read that you have enjoyed the beauty of the environment and the kindness and hospitality of our team. In addition, we thank you for your comments, which we take note of and hope to welcome you back to the heart of the Pearl of the Pacific. See you soon!

Shannon C. Couples - 14/07/2019 AccorHotels review

Loved the small hotel and location was stunning. Staff were wonderful. Would have appreciated the hotel offering boat rides to the coral reef for snorkelling. And some movies in English. It was so easy to see fish right by the walkways by the bungalows on the artificial reef, using a snorkel and mask. Cocktail happy hour was great.

Dear Mr. C., Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are very happy that you liked the location of our hotel, as well as the hospitality and professionalism of our team. We are also delighted that you were able to discover the underwater treasures of our beautiful little island: tropical fish, coral garden, etc... We look forward to welcoming you back to French Polynesia! Mauruuru and see you soon! Concierge Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

Rose W. H. T. C. Couples - 09/07/2019 AccorHotels review

Bonjure! Very pleased with my recent stay at Sofitel Private Island Resort. Very personalized customer service, very private, quite picturesque, serene & tranquil environment. Exactly what we were searching for... Great location and fantastic staff! Lovely property... Stunning really. So authentically Polynesian, much more so than what the other brands offer in the region. I'm a travel agent, this was my first experience with Sofitel and my first visit to this region. I was very impressed, with the property, location, ambiance provided, staff attention to detail and tasty cousine offered. I did much research before choosing a resort in Bora Bora, Sofitel, they exceeded my expectations! I will highly recommend this resort to my clients traveling to this region. Our trip was nearly perfect in every way- (minus a 4 day delay with our luggage arrival from the airline...). Thank you so very much for a wonderful experience, not to be forgotten! Lanaiac was a nice bonus, he made our visit extra special! Wonderful attentive young man with much promise for the hospitality industry.

Ia Orana! The whole team thanks you for your wonderful comment and is very happy that your stay on our small private island has more than pleased you! We are delighted that the intimacy and landscapes it offers have charmed you, as have the legendary Polynesian hospitality and the various attentions paid to you by our team, especially Lenaic. We thank you once again for your very encouraging words and look forward to welcoming you back to French Polynesia or to one of our Sofitel. Mauruuru roa and see you soon!

The accommodations from airport pick up, accommodations/property, activities, recommended ecotour (sharks and stingrays), breakfast/lunch/dining dining to airport drop off were perfect. The staff’s Attention to details, offers of service without being overbearing and warm spirits left lasting impressions on our family including our typical 16 and 17 year old teenagers - well done SOFITEL!

F S. B. Couples - 29/06/2019 AccorHotels review

Experience was great. Few suggestions to improve an already wonderful stay: 1. Either use a king size mattress or a much thicker pillowtop. The twin mattresses separated several times during our stay. 2. Increase AC capacity. 3. Love the bath but shower made it very messy. Think about a separate shower or a better combination 4. The toilet area smelled like a porta potty. Maintenance replaced the toilet seal which helped but didn’t resolve. We ended up buying spray from the main island to mask the smell.

Ia Orana, we thank you for your good comment and are delighted that your experience was wonderful! We thank you for your constructive comments, which we welcome and look forward to welcoming you back to one of our Sofitels. Sincerely, Conciergerie Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Marara Beach Resort

Recommendation: stop using plastic ... like straw ask visitor to natual laggoon park to not use solar cream for corals ...

Ia Orana, we thank you for your comment and are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay on our beautiful little island! We also thank you for your feedback and would like to inform you that the straws we use are made of biodegradable material, often corn and not plastic.

Douglas P. Couples - 13/06/2019 AccorHotels review

The private island with the palm trees and bungalows are like a fantasy realized. From our boat ride from the airport and our personal greeting at the resort until our farewell at the dock with the conch shell being blown everything was perfect. All of the employees were warm and friendly, and did everything to make our stay wonderful. We were treated like royalty. The buffet breakfast in the morning and the Polynesian shows at night are not to be missed. I highly recommend the Sofitel Private Island.

Great hotel and staff, but in need of updates

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Katie Couples - 10/06/2019 AccorHotels review

The Sofitel Private Island is stunning and tucked away so you feel utterly alone in paradise. The staff were amazing, friendly and went above and beyond. The hotel does have some wear and tear. As I said with my review of Sofitel Moorea - the AC should be able to cool down not only the bedroom, but the bathroom as well. There should also be glass on the windows to keep AC in and bugs out. Overall, a wonderful honeymoon. I'd recommend to a friend.

Ia Orana, thank you for your good comment. We are so happy to read that the magnificent setting of our hotel has charmed you, as has the legendary Polynesian hospitality.

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Becky &. T. G. Couples - 07/06/2019 AccorHotels review

It was a magnificent experience from the point when we were picked up from the airport by a Sofitel personnel up to our room accommodation. Being our first time we were looking forward to the boat ride on the beautiful, calm waters. Because we stayed at a Sotifel resort in Moorea we knew that the staff will be just as friendly and gracious here as it was in Moorea and we were not disappointed. Everyone was so friendly and so happy to welcome us. The four nights that we stayed here was very pleasant and everyone seemed to enjoy what they do in making our stay very memorable. The food at the restaurant was good; I tried the spiny lobster just to say that I tried it and it was disappointing. The reason being that my husband is originally from Maine and I am used to the Maine Lobster. It's no ones fault but if it was cooked simply without the trimmings (steamed for example) it probably would taste better (my own personal preference). We tried the scallops and prawns and they were delicious. Housekeeping was wonderful in providing us some sweets for the nite (the macaroons are my favorites) so thank you for that. The front desk and Concierge (Rachel, Denise, Lea, Victoria, and Lea's friend) were all very accommodating to deal with and willing to make our stay unforgettable. Thank you very much to the staff at both Sofitel Moorea and Bora Bora Private Island.....you are the best and an asset to the tourism industry in French Polynesia. More success to you....

Becky & Tom G., the whole Sofitel team thanks you for your very positive feedback and assures you of the happiness you get when you learn that your stay at our hotel was a wonderful and unforgettable experience! We also thank you for your very encouraging messages to our team and especially to Rachel, Denise, Léa and Victoria as well as to our cooks. We look forward to welcoming you back to our small private island in the heart of the pearl of the Pacific! Mauruuru roa and see you soon!
