"YOLO" is a term that, right or wrong, grants carte blanche and justifies any and all decisions.

YOLO would dictate staying at 4S.
4S is way out of reach, c'mon, what would you recommend.

Personally, I wouldn't shell out for either. They're close enough in reviews that I'd go with the one which had award availability.

I'm currently booked at Hilton and LM in OWB.

Last call, I have a couple of days left to cancel my Le Meridien booking without penalty , does anyone have experience between the le Meridian and the IHG interncontinental thalasso? The Intercontinental would cost me a total of 900 dollars more, but seems to have a notch better rating, help me decide. This is a YOLO decision


I would def go with the Intercontinental Thalasso. A little birdy who was recently in Bora Bora saw both and said that the latter was a significant upgrade over the former and only a small notch below the SR

The question is if the significant upgrade is worth $900 more, and do you know what the significant upgrade is? Is it the property? The OWB's or the service?

From the multitude of reviews I've read, this seems to be a very accurate comparison tool

The Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island seems to get the most bang for the buck, according to what I'm reading, its located in the best part of the lagoon, and best for snorkeling. Its also better priced,  Should i ditch the le Meridian for this?

No,  never tried FT, will check now.

So again, you recommend the sofitel private island over Le Meridean?

And FT is different? How many of those posters go to BOB half dozen times?

There are a few for sure. Its also a lot easier to weed out the fake reviews.
