Helped us book and execute a DREAM honeymoon!
My husband and I used Pacific For Less to book our honeymoon, and we were so glad we did! The team there is incredible: very knowledgeable, accommodating, patient, and responsive. Jennifer spent a couple of hours chatting with me on the phone about what we wanted and going over our options. I normally love planning and researching trips, but it felt so good to actually talk with someone who has all the information and could help plan a custom trip! It saved us a ton of time and stress during a very hectic period of our lives. The Pacific For Less team is aware of little details you can't learn online, like the best locations of certain rooms at hotels, whether or not certain hotels are undergoing construction, the local food options, etc. They also helped us book tours and special dinners.Sent on 11/08/2019
In the end, we paid a couple thousand dollars less with Pacific For Less than we would have if we had we booked the trip on our own using our points and elite membership statuses. It definitely made a difference.
In the end, our honeymoon was incredible, and any questions we had during the trip were answered via text! Super easy. I would definitely recommend Pacific For Less to make your Tahiti trip easier and more enjoyable. We already can't wait to go back and book our stay through them again!
Pacific For Less. Inc.'s reply:Hi Paige. Wow, that's a DREAM testimonial! It's so gratifying to read something like this, and know that our team has achieved the very high standard we set for ourselves. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our services. You've been such a pleasure to work with, and I'm delighted that you and Kyle had the honeymoon of your dreams.

When my husband and I decided to go to Tahiti on our honeymoon we tried looking to book everything ourselves. Once we realize there was a lot more than just booking a hotel and a few local flights we decided we needed a company to help us plan our dream honeymoon. The staff at Pacific for Less (Claudia, Jeanna, and Monika) were very easy to work with. They worked within our budget to plan the perfect honeymoon. We decided on 1 night at the Intercontinental Tahiti, 2 nights at the Hilton Moorea, and 4 nights at the St. Regis Bora Bora. Pacific for Less made all our interisland flights with transportation to and from the hotels, dinner reservations, and even booked us on 2 tours (ATV in Moorea and snorkel with sharks and rays in Bora Bora). We could not have asked for a more perfect honeymoon and we will definitely use Pacific for Less when booking our next trip to Tahiti!Sent on 11/13/2018

We recently used Pacific for Less for our honeymoon to Bora Bora (St. Regis). All I have to say is that I am so glad we did! This company was recommended to us by a co-worker who had an amazing experience as well. Pacific for Less partnered with us to plan our itinerary, found us the best rates at the St. Regis, booked our flights and activities, and provided us everything we needed to know about traveling to Bora Bora. The St. Regis was gorgeous and we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and top-notch service. Jennifer was our primary contact and she was so friendly and available whenever we had questions (and I had A LOT as always), as was everyone we interacted with. Planning a wedding is time consuming enough...Pacific for Less made the honeymoon planning simple and fun. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to book a honeymoon or trip in Bora Bora. My wife and I will definitely use them again if we travel back that way!Sent on 12/31/2018
Pacific For Less. Inc.'s reply:Happy New Year, Eric! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of our services, that means a lot. I'm thrilled to hear that your honeymoon was everything you hoped, and more. Wishing you all the best in 2019, and I look forward to being of service to you in the future. Bora Bora can get in your heart, and spoil you for all other tropical destinations -- it should really come with a warning label!

Reminds you why travel agents used to exist.Sent on 07/24/2018
We are so happy that we used Pacific for Less for our honeymoon to French Polynesia. To start off, when we inquired about possible packages, they responded with a 4 page document all about what to do and where to stay. It was clear they wanted us to have a fantastic trip, even if we didn’t end up booking with them. Their value add was to handle all of the reservations and get agent discounts we couldn’t.
We ended up booking some of our stays and our international flights on our own, and they didn’t bat an eye. They operate just as well “filling” in the gaps, as they would have should they have had the whole trip from start to finish.
After having made so many decisions for the wedding, it was so nice to have all of our hotels booked, inter-island flights handled, and airport transferred pre-booked. We just showed up where and when they told us.
Our trip was 2.5 weeks and we went to Moorea, Bora Bora, Tikehau, and Rangiora. Tikehau was a recommendation by P4L after we described that we wanted a much more low key island after visiting THE Bora Bora. It was great. They booked us an ecoLodge that was an entire island called Ninamu.
Not only did they handle logistics, but we also got special activities that we wouldn’t have otherwise have booked. Our package came with an ATV tour of Moorea, which ended up being a highlight of the trip to that island. On Bora Bora, P4L had a discount to a restaurant we hadn’t heard of that was probably the best meal of the trip.
They even looked into the logistics and legal aspects of spreading a family member’s ashes in Bora Bora.

My husband & I used Pacific for Less to book the honeymoon of our dreams - to Moorea, Taha'a, and Bora Bora in French Polynesia. We has such a great time & PFL was so great to deal with & helpful! Despite being in the midst of planning of our wedding, i was somehow able to plan such a great trip because of how helpful all the agents are there. We were able to receive several quotes for various tweak on our package to find something in our budget, plus they offered 2 free excursions which were amazing!! We also received free champagne at every hotel upon arrival & access to the Papeete business lounge on our way back (huge perk given we had a decent layover & that airport is not very comfortable to be in for a few hours, without having lounge access). Our check in process once we arrived in Tahiti was so seamless and easy with the guidance the tour guides contracted through PFL. Everything was so exceptional that we cant wait to go back to French Polynesia and use PFL again!!Sent on 04/18/2018

We used Pacific for Less for our honeymoon to Bora Bora, and we could not be more happy with our service. Claudia spent time on the phone with us discussing our options and giving detailed comparisons of all the resorts in French Polynesia. We ended up choosing the St. Regis Bora Bora resort, and we had the honeymoon of a lifetime without any flaws or hiccups thanks to the planning done by Pacific for Less. Next time we travel to the region, we will definitely use Claudia and her team again!Sent on 09/29/2017

We booked our honeymoon to Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea through Pacific for Less. Staying in an over water bungalow is something on both of our bucket lists, and Pacific for Less has made that possible. We were nervous about using an online travel agency for the south pacific; however, after reading good reviews, we were confident that Pacific for Less was a good choice. Not only was the price reasonable (we looked at TONS of packages from multiple online travel sites), the staff was knowledgeable. They gave us great suggestions based on what we wanted our vacation to be like. They helped us make cost effective decisions and gave us great advice on how to save money. It is nice knowing everything is booked and taken care of a head of time, and it wasn't a hassle for us at all. They even added a free snorkel with stingrays and sharks to our trip! Our honeymoon is still a few months away, but we could not be more excited!Sent on 10/09/2015
We loved our honeymoon. Pacific for Less did a great job with our package, and the recommendations they made really enhanced our vacation. All of the transfers to and from airports were taken care of which made it very easy for us to sit back and enjoy. The hotels were absolutely beautiful. We are overall satisfied and would recommend Pacific for Less to anyone looking for this once in a lifetime trip.

They helped us book any excursions and special dinner reservations we wanted!! Everything was so organized with our itinerary and airport/boat transfers!! Our dream come true honeymoon at St. Regis Bora Bora was all THANKS to Pacific for Less!!

Pacific For Less. Inc.'s reply:Anna! Thank you so much for your positive note about your experience. I'm thrilled that you loved Bora Bora, and the St. Regis.. of course, I wasn't worried, it's fantastic, how could you possibly go wrong?!? But I so appreciate you taking the time to let the WeddingWire community know how great it was, and that we helped. I can't thank you enough. Please keep in touch. When Bora Bora gets in your heart, you'll definitely want to go back. And we will be here when that time comes.

The staff at Pacific for Less were very helpful. They helped us set up a great itinerary that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was the honeymoon of our dreams!! They sent us a lot of information that prepped us really well for our trip. Everything was coordinated really well. Any hiccups that came along were easily fixed with a phone call. Thanks so much for planning our wonderful honeymoon, Pacific for Less!!!Sent on 11/26/2014

My honeymoon was the best vacation I have ever been on in my life! Jennifer helped my plan the most amazing trip to Moorea and Bora Bora. I priced out the same exact trip with quite a few travel agents and none could compare to Pacific for Less' prices. The advice we got along with the trip was invaluable. For example, they let you know what side of the plane from Moorea to sit on to get the best views; they book you the best table at the best restaurant which they recommend; they help you with packing and travelling info, the best tours and restaurants, and so much more. Thank you for memories that we will cherish forever!Sent on 09/30/2014
Pacific For Less. Inc.'s reply:Hooray! That's exactly how a honeymoon should be -- perfect and extraordinary, and we know it's the little touches that can make a trip super special That's what we strive for with all of our clients, and I am so gratified to know that was your experience with us. Thank you Tina!! It was such a pleasure to work with you!

I cannot say enough great things about Pacific For Less. They were recommended to us by friends and we are so grateful that they were! My husband and I booked our honeymoon fairly late (about 3.5 months before the wedding) because we couldn't make up our minds about where to go. Because we were so late in booking the hotel we had originally wanted had limited availability and was no longer running an special rates. Jennifer went above and beyond contacting the manager at the hotel and requesting an extension of the rate for us. When that was not approved she was able to use her contacts to book us a stay at St. Regis in Bora Bora and it was by far the best decision we made! The hotel is simply breathtaking and the ideal place for relaxing for relaxing after the wedding. From our first inquiry, Jennifer and the rest of the staff, were prompt to respond and always friendly and professional. Each transition of our trip, from airport transfers to ferry rides and plane tickets, went smoothly because of the prep work PFL had done, The PFL staff took care of everything allowing us to truly enjoy every minute of our trip. I would highly recommend PFL to anyone looking to travel to the South Pacific!Sent on 08/13/2014
Pacific For Less. Inc.'s reply:Well, I couldn't ask for a better review than that, and I am so gratified to know that we helped in some small way to make your honeymoon so memorable. Bora Bora is paradise, and the St. Regis is pure perfection. I love that my clients get to experience that! There is no better honeymoon destination, or hotel, on the planet! And it is truly a joy to do what I do. Thank you!!

We worked with Jennifer and she was amazing! They are on Hawaii time, which made it a little hard to connect, but they got us a fabulous price. Way less than American Express travel!Sent on 05/07/2014

Pacific for Less made it possible for my husband and I to have our dream honeymoon in Bora Bora. They make staying at the St. Regis somewhat affordable, which is better than impossible. Customer service is excellent, as they were prompt with their correspondence. We highly recommend anyone to use Pacific for Less for any travels to the South Pacific!Sent on 03/19/2012

I had a wonderful time booking PFL.Sent on 09/09/2016
I unfortunately had the displeasure of working with a different travel agent before I knew of PFL. Here are some things the OTHER travel agent did and PFL did NOT do.
* Never followed up about our refund, we had to, still took her four months
* Waited until the very last minute to secure our breakfast coverage and asked us for the email logs
* Never kept documentation.
PFL would NEVER do anything like this. PFL is an amazing travel agency to help with your honeymoon or anniversary experience. We started contact with them the end of 2015 for our honeymoon. They were recommended to us by Bora Bora Beaches - Bora Bora Island Guide on Facebook. At first, I was cautious, but they had great reviews online so I went forward. I'm so glad I did. I never had a hassle with them ever.
They were thorough. They billed accurately. They promptly answer all my questions even if half my answers were in their FAQ. They proactively suggested excursions and provided discounts. Their rates are cheaper than booking directly. I had a complicated schedule with already some portions booked, and they easily filled in the blanks. I never had to double check anything with them, because when I did, everything was accurate.
They are ON TOP of everything. They will even help you during your trip to ensure you're treated well if you run into issues and continue to suggest or help you with bits of your trip while you're there.
I just can't say enough great things about them. I normally book my own trips but with a complicated island trip, they are the best. I just wish they covered the rest of the world so I could plan vacations with them outside the Pacific.
