The Sofitel was a dream hotel. From the time we arrived and then until our checkout, everything was perfect. We loved the breakfast's in the morning and all of the food we ate. The restaurant for the Polynesian show wasn't our favorite but the Vue bar was incredible. We will be coming back.

This is NOT a "luxury" hotel I will say that the staff, for the most part is incrediblt well meaning, and there are many employees who really want to make your trip special (including the male breakfast manager), but for the most part, it all seems like a lot of good intentions with not such great results.

The villa was very luxurious, and beautifully designed so that although it was right on the beach with people directly outside it was private inside. The hotel itself had a great beach bar on the sand for lunch and several restaurants. There was music and dancing every evening, happy hour for half price cocktails, plenty of places to sit around...

新婚旅行で6日間、バスタブ付きの水上バンガローに滞在しました。 部屋を出たらすぐに魚に会える!を体験したく当初ボラボラ島の五つ星ホテルを予約していましたが開発が進んで魚が少なくなっているという情報を得て急遽こちらのホテルに変更しました。 結果、大正解でした。 部屋の外は水深1〜1.2m程。泳ぎが苦手な人でも大丈夫です。 笑えるほど魚がたくさんいました。毎日パンをあげて夢のような時間を過ごしました。パンが水に溶けないように洗濯ネットの持参、鋭利な珊瑚だらけなので足を切らないようにマリンシューズの持参をオススメします。 ホテルの食事の味は日本人的には普通か物によっては口に合わない物もあります。 私たちはオールインクルーシブにしましたが量が多かったので少食の人はインクルーシブにしなくて良いと思います。元は絶対に取れません。ただ、近くにレストランがないこと、朝食でも4千円ほどかかったり、ランチもハンバーガーが3千円もするので新婚旅行であれば値段を気にしたくない方も多いでしょう。そのような方はオールインクルーシブにしても良いかもしれません。 ちなみにレストランでは毎晩フラダンス、ポリネシアンダンスを堪能することができ楽しかったです。 日本語対応のスタッフはいるにはいますがあまり通じません笑。ただ、非常に勉強熱心、一生懸命なので頑張って理解してくれようとします。アクティビティや宿についての説明は日本語にきれいに訳した紙をもらえるのでご安心を。 この宿の素晴らしい点はどのスタッフもとにかく親切です。日本人が珍しいのか(滞在中日本人に会ったのは一晩だけです)とても可愛がってくれます。日本語が通じなくても大丈夫!本当に優しく親身になってくれます。 その他… Wi-Fi: 水上バンガローは遅いです。調べ物がギリギリ?動画は無理。でものんびりする場所なので無くても問題なかったです。 週に一度Wi-Fiパスワードが更新されるので繋がらなくなったらフロントでWhat's the new wifi password? と聞きましょう。パスワードが書かれた紙をくれます。 ホテルで申し込めるアクティビティ: 前日申し込み必須です。ただ、人気のものは満員になることがあるので早め早めの予約が良いです。 ラグナリウムは絶対オススメです!モーレア中の魚が観れる場所へ連れて行ってくれます。あまりの多さに度肝を抜かれ2日連続で申し込みました。 ジェットスキー、4WDバギー(国際免許必要)どちらも速度があり少し怖いですが、海だけでなく山を観たりバギーは山に登ったりすることができてモーレア中の観光スポットを一度に堪能できとても貴重な体験ができます。 虫問題: 同時期に別のホテルに宿泊している日本人の方はゴキブリが出たと落ち込んでいましたが、ソフィテルは本当に綺麗に保たれており一切出ませんでした。7月末で蚊もいません。一晩だけお風呂場に見たことのない巨大な虹色の虫に遭遇しましたが、受付にBig bug!!とかけたら2分ほどで回収に来てくれました。 エアコンの調子がおかしくなった時も即時来て直してくれます。すごい。 タクシー: モーレアのタクシーにぼったくりはいません笑 ホテルのフロントで呼んでもらうと値段を先に言ってくれるので安心です。時間はとても正確です。 島の人はみんなとても良い人で嫌な思いは一度もしませんでした。タクシーで2千円ほどで行けるマハレパ村の600円のハンバーガーやベーグルは美味しいです。 お土産: 買う場所はモーレア最大の町、マハレパ村でもほとんどありません。パペーテの空港orタヒチ本島で買うことをオススメします。 私たちはタヒチ本島の大手スーパーカルフールで全てのお土産を買いました。 マハレパは2〜3時間もあれば周り切ることができる小さな村です。 それくらいかな?とにかく綺麗な魚をみてのんびりしたい方には全力でおすすめです! Many thanks to Ka'haia and Franc for helping us out in Japanese. And we thank the most to Lisette in Restaurant Pure. She is...
