Everything expected and more

Posted 15-Jul-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: There was a slight mix up on the last day on the breakfasts we charged to the room. That was a little frustrating, but it got resolved.
Location: Kayaking, snorkeling, jet skiing, paddle boarding
My wife and I loved it. It was beautiful, relaxing, peaceful, and fun. The food at the hotel was pricy, which we expected, but it was delicious.

Awesome Honeymoon Experience

Posted 29-Jun-2014
This is THE place to go if you want to completely relax. The staff is amazing and so helpful. We stayed in an OWB. It was awesome. The room was perfect. We spent a lot of time just watching the fish and sting rays swim around us. Lots of great snorkeling right on the property. Everything is fairly pricey, but if you can manage it, go for it! Definitely worth it!!! Hoping to come back some day.

Intimate outstanding resort.

Posted 03-Jun-2014
Pros: We loved the accommodations, beach and outstanding service.
Location: Perfect location on the island. Two grocery stores are within walking distance as is Lucky's, an awesome restaurant to the right of the entrance.
After sailing on a catamaran for 11 days, this resort was the perfect ending to our trip. It is the perfect size to receive that one on one service that makes you feel special. We chose this over the sister resort on the motu so we could walk to stores, restaurants, etc. and it worked out perfectly. We weren't tied down to waiting on a boat to take us back and forth. Over the water bungalow's are worth the $$. # 11 was awesome. I personally welcomed the wind (some reviews complained about it) as it was hot and humid. A shout out to Ms Levy, general manager, who sought us out to say hi and make sure everything was up to our expectations and to Celine, who greeted us at the dock and made sure everything went smooth until we were in our room. The beach and amenities were all we could ask for. Every evening there was a happy hour where drinks were two for the price of one. If Bora Bora was closer, this would be a place we would definitely return to.

Heaven on Earth

Posted 21-May-2014
Pros: beautiful romantic setting, great location, beautiful overwater bungalows, small & intimate pool by the beach, great buffet breakfast, friendly staff
Cons: nothing
Location: great location near Matira Beach and good restaurants
We loved everything about our experience at this hotel. We were met at the airport, taken by launch to our hotel and given a welcome drink as we checked in. Our King Overwater Bungalow far exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, well-designed and comfortable. A table over a clear floor provided viewing of the lagoon below and the top could be moved open so as to feed (food was provided) the fish. The deck had a built in table and chairs and two comfortable lounge chairs. We loved lying on the lounges at night listening to the wave action in the lagoon, feeling the breezes and looking at the stars. The pool was small, intimate, beautiful, romantic and next to the beach. The breakfast buffet had every food any guest would desire and we looked forward to it each morning. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. It was paradise and we are already looking forward to the time when we can return.

I wish the service could have been better!

Posted 05-May-2014
Bora Bora is incredible. This was a trip of a lifetime for us! While the bungalow over the water provided an extraordinary experience, the service was lakluster and beyond dissapointing.

Nice hotel, great location close to the town

Posted 21-Apr-2014
Pros: Location, Bungalows.
Cons: Maybe offer a free boat ride from the airport for all quests.
Location: Close to the local town.
Nice over the water bungalow. Hotel is one of the biggest in Bora Bora. This hotel is located a few miles from the local town which you can take a short bike ride to. Buffet was a little expensive but other than that everything was great.

If you're going to Bora Bora, stay here.

Posted 19-Apr-2014
Pros: Beautiful views of mountain and lagoon, great location. Beautiful spacious rooms, perfect for our honeymoon.
Cons: The beds are a little more firm than what we are used to with our tempurpedic. They could be more comfortable.
Location: We used the hotels kayaks to take to the adjacent island and snorkel with the tour boat snorkelers...without having to pay. Brought a little lunch too
We really loved our stay at IHG Le Moana. It is on the main island which is convenient for restaurants, shopping, and access to grocery stores if you wanted to get some supplies for your room. This hotel has very well kept grounds, a great pool and tide pool like lounge area. We are a average household and one thing you will notice about BB (if you aren't loaded with cash) is that everything is really expensive. This hotel beinga part of IHG we were lucky to get a room upgrade from the beach bungalow with the Ambassador Club. (Look into it if you do stay here, it's worth it). We had an overwater bungalow for the entire stay, number 1 and then 71... We wanted to move to the smaller group of rooms. I loved that this hotel was very nice but also still very intimate. The other hotels out on the outer islands (motu) seemed crowded and the water quality around them was not as nice as our water. The water around our hotel was crystal clear and we snorkeld around the property almost every day. The restaurant at the hotel was very expensive for breakfast / dinner. Lunch is average with the rest of the island. Would suggest you walk to the pizza place right outside he property. Mai Tai's is a 5 min walk and also good. Matira Beach was AWFUL, Do not eat eat there. Bloody Mary's was good but slightly overrated.
