"Really nice Hotel - Beautiful beach"
Really nice staff, nice activities everyday. Beautiful beach Concierge to help you to book activities Really close from Manta Ray spot Kayak and paddle to borrow Amazing rooms overwater Food is good and pool is clean.
My husband and I visited Jan. 5-11 for our 10th wedding anniversary and loved every minute. The resort is absolutely beautiful. We especially loved that it was very quiet and private. Unless at the pool or a restaurant, we rarely saw other guests. We booked a sapphire bungalow (#208) and personally think we must've received the one with the best view. From our room we had an uninterrupted view to the south. From our deck, we could also see Mt. Otemanu and the sunset to the west and the sunrise to the east. All staff members were friendly and helpful, but especially the breakfast crew. We were greeted by name every morning and sat at our preferred table. They even remembered our plans for the previous day and asked how everything went. Prior to our trip, we had read several bad reviews about the food, but we found the food to be delicious. However, we were bummed when we tried to book dinner at Le Corail on the 5th for our anniversary and were told it was closed for the season even though the website indicated that it didn't close until the 8th. We can't wait to return to Bora Bora and can't imagine staying anywhere else.
"Beautiful tropical islands"
The resort overall is very luxurious, rooms are beautiful and quite sizeable. We upgraded to a bungalow with private pool which was a good choice as the ocean was warmer than the pool. We used it regularly and was glad to have it. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough to help. My only complaint would be the food, was a let down. The fine dining was closed for renovations and as we were there for seven days we ran out of choices. And considering this would be the most expensive holiday we have ever had, the quality of food didn't match the price tagged holiday. And even for some items a surcharge was added. Also had to pay for coffee pods in the room. Other resort like Maldives were better value and quality.
Beautiful. I am no easy customer. If I don’t like something, I make it known. But this hotel handled everything incredibly. An absolutely stunning and beautiful resort. Wonderful and accommodating staff. Delicious food. Gorgeous views. Everything was beyond perfect. So unbelievably romantic and perfect. One of the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had. Will be staying here again for sure.
"Brando suite experience: Amazing with some room for improvement"
Thanks to our great agent, Claudia, from „Pacific for Less“ in Hawaii, we could realize our dream and stay at one of the four new Brando Suites with "3,229 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space, with floor-to-ceiling windows that perfectly frame the 180-degree views of Bora Bora’s turquoise-hued lagoon and the famous Mount Otemanu and 170-square-foot infinity pool—the largest private pool of any overwater villa in French Polynesia" - this is what you can find out online if you google "Brando Suites Bora Bora". In reality it was still amazing: a huge modern comfortable villa with almost everything one would need. Considering that this was a brand new accommodation only completed in December 2017, and we stayed there from December 25, 2017. There were a few things to address to get to a true Brando style luxury experience, nothing major though - we did provide the General Manager with our suggestions, hope he will realize at least some of them soon. The villa would benefit more from some stronger wi-fi on the deck where one would spend quite a bit of time, and the huge high-tech plasma would need more international/ satellite channels to satisfy the variety of audiences, and perhaps, some collection of DVDs and smart TV / internet connection so you could stream contents online - unfortunately, it was not an option during our stay, especially at the rainy evenings. But it made us get out more and explore, so not a biggie, really. The resort itself is lovely, the service is a bit slow but high standard. Canoe breakfasts, buffet breakfasts, food at the Sands restaurant - all of these were good (but nothing exceptional), friendly, attentive to details, yet very relaxed. Concierge service was also excellent as they tried their best to address any concerns and find solutions to make our stay very comfortable. Although we did not use the Spa, we asked to take us around the premises, and it was a good tour where one could see what to expect from their services. Overall, a fabulous experience and I highly recommend staying at a Brando Suite. Our special thanks to Stephane Massarini, General Manager, Thibault, one of concierges, who looked after us very well; and last but not least to the entire „Pacific for Less“ team for exceptional service and organization.
