After a week in French Polynesian vacation, I missed my asian food. I bought the instant noodle from the nearby shop and asked for the hot water. The lady staff brought the noodle to the kitchen. After few minute, she brought my noodle in the well decor bowl. That was a surprise.

Best mattress and decent price”
Mattress = good sleep
We stayed in one of the luxury bungalow- lagoon front which effectively an overwater bungalow. The location is pretty good. If you stay on the private island, it will be even better, very close to the Coral Garden. Next time if we plan to go back to Bora-Bora, will definitely try the Private Island.

Bora Bora is very expensive place.. and Sofitel hotel is quite cheap if you want to compare it with others. I had a bungalow half on the water and half on the ground- and I think it was the best choice. Bugalow is quite big with a big bed and with a very nice and big terrace. The view from you terasce is amazing and you can jump directly to the water.
BUT you can expect to meet all possible animals in your bungalow- even rats.
Small part of the hotel is situated on the "Private Island". But you can't visit it.. I mean- you can- but you have to pay 70 EURO per person- then you can eat lunch there and stay till 5:30 pm.
About Bora Bora in general- I think you will be a little bit disapointed.. because there is plently nicer places around the world and much much cheaper..

not for single travel”
being in Bora Bora
It was not good there traveling alone. The hotel is greared for singles...The food on the Private Island was pretty bad. some of the staff was very friendly whilst others were not so. I heard they were going to remodel but the rooms were fine as is.

Cheap hotel compared to others hotel at Bora Bora”
Althoguh the price is much cheaper compared to others hotel in Bora Bora, but this hotel is still very good in overall. The only disatisfication is the airconditioner is too noisy.

Hotel on beautiful island -terrible service/food”
This Sofitel is misleading on the website as is on its own island and frustrating as you are at the beck and call of their transfer boats, which take ages to ferry you across and we nearly missed our flights because of this. Honestly, we found the Polynisians service and attitude to be the worst in the world and we have travelled extensively. They are not interested in you unless you are giving them money. However, the setting is lovely but hard to appreciate with such shoddy service and inedible food for a 5 star hotel! The actual Sofitel across the way was much better with service and delightful food so recommend you rather stay on the mainland as we thought we had booked.

Beautiful hotel and location
We loved it! The hotel is beautiful and perfectly located. A dream. Good size too. Not huge.

Overwater bungalows from nos. 62 on were wonderful and private. A small resort
Overwater bunalows were worth every cent paid as long as you were in nos. 62 or higher. The level of service did not live up to expectations as the resort seemed to be understaffed. Staff had difficulty understanding simple english requirements.
Meals were disappointing, to say the least.

Romantic place for couple ”
Luxury room with beautiful and romantic view
we stayed here for 2 nights, 1 night in lagoon front bangalow at marara beach and another night in overwater bangalow at private island. we love private island more than the main beach because it's very quite and room is luxury furnished and modern equipped and very comfortable.
the hotel provides free snorkel gear with limited quantity. we can jump into the sea and snorkel in front of our room which is surrounded by small reefs, coral and little fish.
for the dinner, you shpould join dinner buffet in the main beach which the cost is not too expensive but you will enjoy the traditional food and dance show. all are very gorgeous.
