At the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort you can discover the sparkling magic of the lagoon, admire the awe-inspiring Mount Otemanu while luxuriating in the peace and tranquility of the surroundings.

Bora Bora, with a lagoon resembling an artist' s palette of blues and greens, is love at first sight. Honeymooners and romantics from around the world have laid claim to this island where the castle-like Mount Otemanu pierces the sky. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters where impossibly colored fish animate the coral gardens.

Review:   Recommended for: Honeymoons, anniversaries

Pros: This is probably my favorite resort in Bora Bora. It combines a real Polynesian feel and style in the bungalows, a beautiful pool, lovely grounds, and an absolutely amazing setting for the spa--on a little island in the middle of a lily pad pond...truly spectacular and romantic.

Cons: None.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Great place with fun activities. Only reason for the four star is food and prices marked up for tourist but can't be too mad. People were friendly and the beach was amazing!

Review:   Beautiful beach and pool. Nice beach houses with outside bathrooms and private jacuzzi. Nice staff most of the time. Downside really only is the outside bathroom. You get stung by mosquitos almost everytime you go to the bathroom. And the staff at the breakfast buffet which most of the time looked unhappy and was not very attentive. But you get free fresh coconut pieces and water at the beach staff hut and you can borrow stand up paddles, kayaks and snorkeling gear for free. And the breakfast buffet is very good and includes a cook who makes fresh omelettes, eggs and pancakes for you.

Review:   I've been in bora bora three times. First time in four seasons, second in Conrad (which some people think is Hilton), and this time in pearl Beach. As a naturally environment perspective (aka beauty), Pearl Beach is the most beautiful place. The water with the mixed blue colors are stunning, and the way the sun rises and the sunset make the hotel extremely well positioned. The island has other stunning beaches which I discovered is not the hotel property, only after I went there (please, don't be advise :)) . As the installation perspective, bora bora pearl resort is similar to Conrad and a little less five star than the four seasons. The service here is similar to Conrad and Four season is far away the best in this part. The food is as expensive (as expected) as in the other hotels in bora bora. The difference is that four season have a spectacular food service, Conrad and here are both ok. Pearl Beach has a very good breakfast buffet, pay attention when you make your reservation for that, because should be included, and some agencies charges separately. If you enter in the hotel's site, you will realize that is included.

Review:   Pearl Beach Resort was just what we needed to enjoy Bora Bora. The people and staff were absolutely brilliant, the facilities were fantastic, the food scrumptious, the overall setup was just the perfect mix of modern amenities yet remote island-ish. Right from the welcome, to the final checkout, everything that the resort provided was exactly what one would want on a couple getaway in Bora Bora. Their Ow bungalows open into an absolutely amazing lagoon, just right for swimming or chilling around, they have their own coral garden with some pretty good fishes, and the resort is quite beautifully made for some nice photography. They have enough staff at all times, and the overall maintenance and management of the resort made us so happy that we chose them. The only thing we had complain is the mosquitoes - but then again, thats Bora Bora+rains for you :) We will come back!

Review:   The most impressive aspect of this resort was by far the staff. The activities center and concierge in particular do everything they can to accommodate you. The significant drawback was the biting flies that were ravenous around the pool and dining areas. I left the island with itchy welts all over my body in spite of covering myself in 100% deet after reading online reviews on how to prepare for French Polynesia. The beach as well as area outside of the overwater bungalows are free of bugs due to the breeze which is where we eventually stationed after the experiences with the bugs by the pool on day 1 and 2. It's best to bring your lunch back to your room because it's impossible to eat in peace with those insects around. All in all a breathtaking and once in a lifetime experience but you have to go in mentally prepared to be patient with the biting flies. Staff is wonderful. The jacuzzi doesn't work...or at least none of the guests knew how to operate it and when we asked the front desk they just said to "push the buttons..."
