“Overall pretty good with a few shortcomings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Stayed here the last week of August 2013 in a 3 bedroom luxury villa (with AC) with my wife and 2 kids aged 8 & 10. Overall our stay was pretty good except for the lack of Internet which for me is a reason on itself not to stay here any more.

As all of the houses are privately owned the interior of the house will be a bit of a surprise the structure is the same everywhere. We had 2 very quiet AC Daikin AC units and all the comfort of a modern vacation home except for an Internet connection inside the house. The inventory was very complete and all the basics such as toilet paper, kitchen soap/sponges, pepper, salt and other basic goods were also already there which was very convenient.

The pool area was overall very lovely although a bit chilly at times (apparently the pool is unheated in summer) and there also were lifeguards throughout the opening hours (10-19h). The pool area was about the size we expected going by the pictures, large but not too large. There were also enough chairs and shady places to sit and our kids loved it.

Safety on the domain was excellent. A big plus comes from the entire village fenced off and protected by a gate that requires an entry/exit code, so that the kids could run around freely with their newly made friends all over the domain without us having to worry too much. We really enjoyed relaxing with a nice glass of wine on our terrace and we never really had to worry about our kids being gone for a while (there was no way for them to leave the village).

There also was animation in the summer and they did a pretty good job overall. Although I personally am not a big fan our kids loved it although it was French only. The highlight was an almost professionally organized magic show.

Another plus during summer was the on property bakery service during the morning.

Why not five stars? Well the Internet connection only worked very occasionally and extremely slowly and apparently this issue exists already for many years according to several other tenants. Each year there are many promises that it will be resolved the next year but so far .. no Internet! Two other negative points were the lack of (hot & clean water) showers at the pool area and our house had terrible water pressure: taking a bath was not possible and when someone was in the shower nobody could use any water throughout the entire house (not the kitchen, not the toilet, nothing). Finally we also were a little disappointed that the pizza's from the Tiki bar had to be ordered already at noon for evening delivery.

Will we go back there? Well this will depend upon the Internet connection but if that gets fixed there is a very high likelihood of us going back at some point.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

The complex was great,house,pools, nice place for a family holliday. The only thing that was not for a 5***** was bad internet connection which was repaired 1 day before we left so we spent 2 weeks without internet there. As we had our holliday in June when there was " hot in the day/cold in the night&morning" weather , there was absolutely no need for air conditioner which we,by the way, didn't had (maybe it is hidden somewhere) . So thats the only thing for paying attention if you are spending your holliday in July and August,ask reception about air condition so you can be sure that there is one in every house. Anyway,houses are really nice so I recommend this place for a holliday.!!!

No fault can be found with the appartments (premium). They are perfect with everything you need for a lovely holiday. However, the park grounds are very bare with hardly any trees and thus no shade. The houses stand baking in the sun. Park has great swimming pools with slides and enough to keep kids entertained. But no shade, not even umbrellas. And off season the pool bar is closed, so it's all a bit basic. Park is too remote for a stroll into the village, the road is much to busy for a safe stroll anyway. Location is perfect to explore the coast and the small villages. Get a car, other wise you're stuck.
