Hotel des Dunes
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Cap-Ferret
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2010

I enjoyed our stay at Hotel des Dunes.

The staff is very friendly and happy to help out. The location is a 5 min walk to the center of town which insures quiet sleep but is close enough to feel connected (at night though, you need to drive). The rooms are small but comfortable, very clean and well priced for the level of service.

This hotel is also (as the name implies) right on the ocean dunes near a beach path. Unfortunately, the dunes are huge and there are no views from the hotel, but access to the beach is right outside your door.

I fell in love with the easy elegance of Cap Ferret and this hotel is a great way to experience it for several days. If I came back for a week+, I would probably rent an apt, but for a short stay, this place is wonderful!

Lovely hotel de charme where the welcome provided by Alexandrine and Arnaud is warm, efficient and personalised. The minuscule sauna is well thought trough, appreciated, and adds pampering (and warmth in case of rainy days) to the stay. The hotel location slightly outside the centre of the village, near the lighthouse and a few minutes walk from the ocean's beach protects against a noisy human environment. The only drawback is the immediate proximity of the road, but I have to say that the traffic was not very busy, so only a minor inconvenient. I plan to stay there again in the near future and I can recommend it to fellows travellers looking for a stay in a quiet environment, close to the magnificent ocean in a bijou modern hotel!

choice is restricted in the area... very nicely decorated and kept
the staff is over friendly, but... the location is a bit disapointing : not at all in the 'dunes' rather on the corner of the main road and a dead end road leading to the 'dunes' but easy pedestrian access to the 'wild' ocean coast and the beach is almost empty. Be sure to book one of the patio's room on the ground floor - the view from room on the first floor isn't very appealing. rooms have all needed commodities but are quite small. breakfast was tasty.
other option is hotel 'côté sable' in town - the bay rooms have direct view on the 'bassin d'arcachon' and access to the (depending on the tides) beach.
in either case, be sure to book a table at delicious 'hortense'
