Bora bora overwater bungalow
Nice area great staff. We stayed in a water bungalow was nice but dated. Clean though air conditioner broke and flooded room after that it didn’t stay very cool. Food at hotel was pricey and just medium. The breakfast that was included was very good at the private island.

A little piece of paradise
We had an awesome time at Sofitel. We went for our honeymoon and everyone at the hotel was super courteous and nice. The views, the water, the marine life, in the hotel is amazing. The only negative thing (which wasn't too big of a deal since we only stayed 5 nights) is that there is only one hotel restaurant, and the menu doesn't change, so after 5 days we were starting to wish there was more variety. I highly recommend this hotel and looking forward to going back.

Perfect Stay
The Sofitel was our third overwater bungalow of the week in our trip through French Polynesia, and in some ways it was the best. Thought the bungalows are small, they are well designed, and beautifully decorated. The outdoors space and the swim platform were well thought out as well. We were extremely pleased with the food on the private island, and would highly recommend ordering room service for breakfast, because the spread is fantastic. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived to the staff blowing a conch shell while the porter played the ukulele. The name "private island" really means private. It was nice to not see other people for a while, and if you needed to go ashore, it was fast and easy (and free) to get a boat to the main island. We loved our time here, and will not hesitate to go back on future trips. I don't know what you get at the St. Regis or Four Seasons for 3 times the money, but it couldn't possibly be worth the money by comparison.

Lovely island
Pros: Beautiful location. Wonderful to take the boat back and forth from the private island to the mainland. Waitresses were excellent. Over the water wood bungalows magical. Cons: had to change rooms because of ant infestation and termite problems. Broken shower handle, missing window covering slat which let in bugs, missing duvet in duvet cover. Recommendation is that the pestspraying and maintenance programs be enhanced. Wi-fi only available in reception, dining room and not in rooms. Need lounge chairs on all balconies.
