When planning our trip to Bora Bora we used Pacific4less and I cannot say enough good things about this company. It took a large burden off my shoulders, as I am usually in charge of the details and set up on family vacations. My husband and I went with his family of four and stayed in 3 overwater bungalows, 119-121....

My wife and I spent 3 days here after a wonderful Windstar cruise. Maybe that was our mistake; if you ever get a chance to take a cruise in FP Windstar is your ticket. If we were to rate the staff here at Private Island they would rate at least 4 STARS. Friendly, helpful and a " yes we can...

Take care about your rooms. Learn from Intercontinental Thalasso roof. No roof bags, no lizards, no mosquitos. Clean. That's what guests want. American style. Somebody here in Bora bora should wake up!

This was definitely the right choice for us to stay in Bora Bora. The hotel is beautiful and the views of the volcano are amazing!
