This was a amazing trip for my seven year old daughter, my wife who is has cancer, and myself. Once we arrived we were treated very well and all the staff were so friendly and super nice. The location of the resort is perfect place within the lagoon. The water is crystal clear and has lots of fish visiting your over the water bungalow. We will like to go again some time down the road but we need to save up for the next trip to the most beautiful location in the world.
My husband and I visited for my birthday and our anniversary and It far exceeded our expectations. The resort was magnificent with breath-taking views from everywhere on the property. The room was island chic with luxurious touches. We stayed at the overwater villa (an absolute must) and it was worth every dime! Take advantage of Day in Paradise on the private island of Motu Tapu if you are looking for even more romance and privacy. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

We had a very pleasant stay at the Sofitel Marara in Bora Bora. The price was less than some of the higher end places like St. Regis and Intercontinental, and I could not see that those were any better. We stayed in Bungalows # 56 and then moved to 58, and we were right over the water with our own steps down to the lagoon. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Our friends also thought their bed was very comfortable. We had an issue with not getting into our room until 3pm, but they gave us each a free drink to help with the waiting :-) The grounds are lush and beautiful.
Exceptional service from the staff. Great place to stay on the main island.
Outside of activies who pick you up from the hotel there are about 3 opportunities a day to get to the main town. The shuttle buses do cost however the staff are great and the hotel is a comfortable base on the main island. I would definitely recommend it.
I split my time between Mai Tai and a high end luxury resort. A great way to get the best if both worlds.

Had an overwater bungalow. Went there thinking there is no way this place could look as nice as the photos, but I was wrong it was even better. The staff was excellent, like most of French Polynesia the food was just okay.

I was very happy with our choice of the Intercontinental Le Moana hotel for our stay in Bora Bora. We booked a horizon overwater bungalow (the ones farthest out--although, we booked on Expedia so we got the closest-in one of those...but it was still a very nice location). The bungalows at this Intercontinental aren't as big as the ones at the Thalasso, but I thought they were a very comfortable size (king bed, sitting area and desk, very large & modern bathrooms. The decor is very nice and feels authentic island (thatched roofs, etc). The balconies have an upper and lower deck and a ladder into the water.
One great thing about this hotel is that it's on the southern tip of the main island and thus has a very large lagoon (the water is only 2-feet deep all the way out to the last bungalow--a good 100 yards). In addition, there is a lot of coral throughout the lagoon that attract hundreds of tropical fish. Each overwater bungalow has its own coral garden below a glass table (most other hotels have the glass-bottom table but no coral to attract the fish; in fact, most don't even have lagoons to speak of). The hotel has snorkel gear, kayaks, and paddleboards available for guest use.
The staff was another highlight--everyone is very helpful and friendly, and the concierge happily took care of setting up any activities we wanted to do. The hotel did an excellent job of creating exactly the relaxing, stress-free vacation we were looking for.

"VERY NICE PLACE, VERY NICE STAFF, VERY NICE FOOD"
I really enjoyed staying in Eden Beah Hotel. The owner and his family provide a especial environment and offer more than expected: a friendly relationship! It was like a "homestay" experience. The surrounding nature is amazing, with the lagoon in the front and the open sea in the back. And don't miss to try the all Vlada's cooking abilities!

The entire experience was extremely enjoyable. All staff members were friendly and accommodating with a desire to make guests' stays as comfortable as possible. The facilities such as the gym, spa, and pool were all meticulously cleaned and very presentable. The overwater villa we stayed in was large and very comfortable. It had beautiful views of the lagoon and mountains.The concierge is proactive in contacting you to ensure you have dinner reservations. They also are helpful in scheduling a number of available activities at the hotel such as jet skiing, spa visits, and snorkeling trips.
