We recently stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a tour of Brittany. The Castel Marie-Louise is a grand old lady and sits majestically in the beautiful gardens just near to the sea-front. The situation is great for walking along the promenade and is close to lots of restaurants.We had a room at the back of the hotel...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Castel Marie-louise. I was impressed with the level of luxury for the price on the beach. The room, bed and bath were clean and comfortable. The view was amazing! I was working and my husband was sightseeing. I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful hotel in this apparently top-end resort. Large, airy room was luxuriously appointed with "country house style" decor. Lovely bathroom. Superlative breakfasts. Huge bed. Really fun to be able to use the complimentary bikes to explore the local area. Staff were totally top notch: excellent English and always on the lookout to assist ( with maps, umbrellas, bags, parking etc.)...

This hotel on the edge of La Baule city is a quiet haven opposite the beautiful sandy bay with it's expansive golden beach. The welcome was warm and we were shown around the hotel and checked in swiftly and professionally. The décor is reminiscent of 1980's opulence, a little dated but does not in any way spoil your stay or...

La Baule Escoublac boasts the longest white-sand beach in Europe, running some five miles along the bay. The gorgeous beach is backed by almost 5 miles of modernist hotels, condos, and casinos with bars, boutiques, and restaurants sprinkled in. Just north of the casino sits a huge Victorian mansion back of a deep, luxurious lawn, altogether quite unlike any other...
