Hello Frederic,
 
I have finally arrived back home and found some time to contact you again.
 
I wish to express my gratitude for your efforts and the flawless execution of my itinerary.
Every part of the journey that was organized by your agency was without any remarks.
I am very pleased with all three of my accommodations and strongly recommend them for any budget oriented traveler.
All hosts went beyond my expectations to meet my needs in the short time I spent in each of the pensions.
 
Even though I booked it myself, the Sarah Nui hotel in Papeete was a very pleasant surprise in terms of comfort, facilities and staff hospitality.
I will refrain from commenting about the Kaveka hotel due to some unpleasant circumstances during my stay.
 
Since other customers might find the following information useful, I will share my experience with the mobile operators in FP:
Vini does not offer prepaid SIM cards with both voice and data. They have separate cards for talking and browsing which was not useful for me.
Vodafone do offer combined voice+data cards however their service is only available on Tahiti and Moorea. All other nearby islands are Vini-only.
 
Once again, thank you for a job well done and a happy customer. I will make sure anyone I know to contact your agency first if they are interested in that region.

Information about the
destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by our consultant were good, as the organization at the arrival and during the trip.
We recommend Yestahiti. Our contact Frederic was listening to us and gave us perfect advises - no problem to call him on skype. It was easy to arrange everything.
 
The quality of accommodation was good overall.
Very good bedding in all pensions.
The dinner was very good at pension Tautiare while the breakfast was very disappointing (baguette and jam industrial - missing at least one fruit).
At Fakarava, Havaiki is not a pension but rather a charm hotel. good bedding but a very poor soundproofing in the panoramic bungalow. If you have some noisy neighbors, you have gained your experience !!! In spite of that the place is very good and Joachim's sons are friendly. The tour to the South Pass is fine.
Pension Cecile - Life at the pension is different when Cecile is there! Very nice, she settled down with the tourists.
 
The two activities we made are really a must: the tour at the south pass of fakarava with Havaiki and Reef Island at Ranguiroa with Leon (Paati excursion) - the place, the food on the motu, snorkeling and traditionnal crafts - everything was perfect.
Please notice that the motu tour at Maupiti is disappointing, no interest.
Diving: a lot
 
We recommend Tahiti even if it is not a budget destination -
People are very nice, they do not hesitate to inform us or to help us.
The scenic beauty of the underwater world...

A big thank you to Ariimana for helping us organize this trip that we dreamed of for a long time.
The welcome and great at each airport was perfect. Each transfer was perfectly organized. It was very important to enjoy our trip without any trouble.

The only downsides were the international flights with Air Tahiti Nui: on the flight Paris - Los Angeles: the flight was delayed 24 hours due to a technical problem. On the flight Los Angeles - Papeete wed had given two separate places while we were on honeymoon. On the flight Papeete - Paris: we sat among the last row of business class; a menu was distributed to us, but every meal we ordered was unavailable. When it is systematic, that becomes really annoying, especially when you paid a place in business class...

We will recommend Borabora.com to our friends. We were well advised. The choice of hotels and tours totally met our expectations. Ariimana, our counselor, was always ready to advise us and make the right answer to our questions; but mostly he organized us a trip that has perfectly matched our expectations.

Concerning the hotels, from the PEARL in Moorea or Bora Bora to the TAHAA Resort we could enjoy the comfortable, pleasant and intimate atmosphere of beautiful resorts with great service and a very friendly staff. Only downside, in each hotel the WIFI access was not free and not very good.

Finally for each organized excursions, we had the pleasure to meet friendly guides and Tahiti is truly a destination that we recommend.

My
review about the accommodation:
-Raiatea Sunset Lodge: Superb
-Pension Raivavae tama resort: Excellent cuisine, housing perfect, a good address
-Pension Papahani in Maupiti: very good
-Hotel Kavaka to Moorea: always a good place to stay
-Tubuai Pension Veteanui: Minimum Housing  but good for meals
-Rurutu Pension Temarama: Good

Information about the destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by Councillor were good and the overall organization of your stay was good or excellent.

We particularly enjoyed the excellent reactivity to our questions asked by email; the quality of response and dialogue, flexibility on applications.

We are very pleased with our experience and the good preparation made with your team has contributed to that satisfaction.

French Polynesia is really beautiful even though we only got a small vision. We loved the warm welcome of an always smiling people.
 
The tourist infrastructure should be more developped to discover more islands. The offers are often quite similar to see the same sites.

Regarding Frederick, who organized our trip, I have to say he was perfect.
Fast, reliable, listening to my wishes. No surprises during our trip. what asking more ? Air Tahiti and Air Tahiti Nui are very good airlines.
Our favorite islands were Maupiti, Rangiroa, Moorea and Tikehau. We will not return to Taha'a even if I think the hotel is worth a visit: the Vahine Island with its beauty, perfect bungalows, his kindness and intimacy and of course the gastronomy...
Bora Bora is still a must with its lagoon, hotels and this wonderful mountain. But the atmosphere is not the same as on the other islands. People are less open to each other.
The intercontinental hotels are great qualities.

Responses to the poll:

1 / How do you rate our Information about the destination, route recommendations, choice of accommodation offered by your advisor? Good, but we already had a pretty clear idea. The hotels were very good except perhaps in Maupiti - the Kuriri - is a bit limited anyway. I think it's better to be on the main island.

2 / How do you rate the overall organization of your stay (home to the airport, transfers, domestic flights)?
Excellent reception on arrival but not very cheerful but everything went without any problems or errors with the reservation. It was perfect. No one came to see us for the check out, I hoped  to see Frédéric ;-).

3 / Would you recommend Yestahiti to your friends and relations? yes, without hesitation.

4 / How do you rate the quality of your accommodation compared to your expectations? See answer 1 of the Kuriri Maupiti. It does not match the site of the board, the white sand beach !! White yes but impractical and comfort is really limited, an impossible stream of water to really wash, they are nice and we ate well, it's light but good. I would not recommend it anyway.
Tkehau village is good for bungalows and location, food and atmosphere means.
Otherwise, perfect, completely perfect. Special mention for the pension Cécile, location, hospitality, atmosphere, meals, everything is there.

5 / How do you rate the tours and activities during your stay? Excellent. Excursions very well taken there each time. Safety on board vessels can surprise sometimes, especially with a child, but welcome and great service.

6 / I recommend without hesitation Polynesia, The island of Tahiti less but the rest, without hesitation. It's a magical beauty, Polynesians are very nice, a little shy sometimes but not for long! We’d love to come back to your islands, anyway, we were all and even. My 8 year old son cried in hope therefore that's a first. We must save now to come back !!

Dear Ariimana

We are now already 2 weeks back from our wonderful holidays in French Polynesia. First we like to say thank you for your very professional service to us. Every single booking you made was done in time and to our full satisfaction. The sailing with Dreamyacht Charter (skipper Apera and crew Viginie) was 100% what we expected. Also with the cruise on Aranui 3 we were more than happy to collect this extraordinary voyage to our bag of memories.

We wish you all the best for the future and thank you again.

Greetings from a winterly but warm South Africa

Excellent information about the destination: .
Very sound recommendations for routes. Accurate for people that do not know your country!

Choice of accommodation: some surprises including a bad one in Huahine "PENSION FARE MAEVA" (poorly maintained, no welcome, poor restoration); cozy, comfortable, friendly. A negative point for the stay at Nuku Hiva and PENSION HE E TAI INN, the manager of the pension, ROSE, being a bit overwhelmed by the management of its pension.
 

General organization of your stay: Excellent organization: No problem, all aircraft transfers were good, the documents received at the Papeete airport were clear and allowed us to move from one island to another with ease. At the end of our stay, Polynesian airports had no secrets for us thanks to the kindness and smiles of all Polynesians encountered!
 

We recommend YesTahiti our friends, and that's what has already been done!

Thank you again for your attention, your guidance in your choice tips and suggestions.
 

Our stay was very good, we did some great meetings. Many Polynesian passionate about their country, their culture, crafts, safeguarding their heritage, passengers like us all surprised by so many cultural richness, botanical or geographical (especially in the Marquesas).
 

You should know reach out to others, do not hesitate to knock on doors, listening to the locals talk about their past, their faith, their hope, and especially their desire to pass on their knowledge and pride of living on their island. This is actually our feelings at the end of our three week tour of eight islands visited.
