We have holidayed in France many times over many years pretty much complaint free. However, this time we feel there is real cause for informing others of our experience. The sea view rooms in this hotel are not cheap and we did not feel we got anywhere near value for money.
Positives: The sea view rooms are of a very good size. soundproofing from the road and hotel function areas is excellent and room to room is OK. The staff are very helpful, parking is easy and the beach is very accessible.
Negatives: changed rooms 3 times because 1. The bathroom (not toilet) smelled so bad we felt it was unusable. We were assured this would be fixed but could only detect minor improvements when we came back from dinner. We asked for a new room . 2. The next room had air con that was so loud we could not see ourselves sleeping in this room so we did not accept it. 3. The next room had functional and quiet air con but had an ever present smell in the bathroom (not as bad as the first room). It was now 11.00pm and we were not prepared to change again. We were also told that maintenance was not available on the weekend.
In General: I feel this is a very tired hotel that overlooks an expansive beach which I did not find attractive but others may. It is surrounded by a small town centre that does not offer great dining but OK casual eating. I would not recommend it as we have stayed in this area before and know that there are better hotels and more attractive beaches.
