“Baths justify the hotel,despite late check-in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Carnac Thalasso has two, hotel, 3 stars and 4 stars hotel.I stayed in 3 stars hotel and i think is good enough.
Location.Beside beach, 15 munutes walking to Carnac downtown and 30 minutes walking to megalithes.So it´s a good location.
View froom room was nice, the salt lake with a lot of birds.
The best:Baths
Hotel has a Spa where guest can use, with hot salt sea water.The baths provide a fantastic relaxation, and is possible try this water in the swimming pool or the best, jacuzzi with hot salt sea water.
Rooms were small, but OK,enough confortable.
Hotel has excellents restaurants.
Staff is helpful,but they need improve information about how to go to train station in Auray, as there is no train station in Carnac.
The worst: terrible check-in time at 16:00.I can´t understand why so late check-in time.Making check-in at 4 p.m. guests lose arrival day,
And room is cleaned-up early at morning, also check-out time is at noon.

Room Tip: Avoid some rooms in first floor(rez de chaussée),because some of them, not all, are located in the h...

Average 4-star hotel, but with a large number of wellness facilities (spa, massages, different types of pools, gym, etc. etc.)
Rooms are average for this price range, and have working airconditioning which is nice.
The breakfast is quite good, with nespresso coffee, and a nice selection of bread, cereals, egg, meats, cheeses, fuit, juices, yoghurts, etc.
Service times for breakfast, lunch and diner are very strict, as in most places in France. Only a very few venues in Carnac have continuous service.
Outside regular hours, the hotel lounge also serves food, but has a very limited selection.
The hotel is located not directly on the beachfront, but on the street leading up to the beach. The village is within easy walking distance.
The hotel is part of a larger complex that also features 3-star appartments (no airco), and a health-package for people that want to live very healthy during their stay (lots of fruit/vegetable smooties etc.). A significant number of elderly people were staying in the resort, perhaps for the wellness-facilities.

Room Tip: If you want airconditioning, choose the 4-star section. The 3-star section doesn't have it.

This was so far our best spa weekend that we have been fortunate enough to share.Although not exactly good value for money as I personally feel you always get over charge in this hotels classed as 3* /4* hotels. The room for me was a room with a view and nothing special ( i.e. no balcony to enjoy the view.). The restaurant food was again over priced as was the wine,so being a bit of a cheap scape we always take our own bottle o sparkling wine with us to enjoy as an aperitif before the meal.You also get to choose your own nibbles so I don't get given a small handfull of nuts,which I don't like.
The breakfast was not to bad very much again the normal ,we decided to take it in the room at an extra cost but then you don't sit around other people eating in their bath robes waiting to go in the spa centre.
Now the actual Spa Centre was included in the price we paid for the room so due to the adverse weather we took advantage of thus to the full. With the bath robes ( provided) we entered to find a roomy sauna ( separate men and women's ) the same in the steam room where there is also a small walk through cold water bath. The swimming area is quite small if the centre is busy( Olympic swimmers beware ) . The swimming area is next to a series of different water jets etc which are again really nice especially as there is a section to go outside and enjoy the jets etc.
Now again all this is great if it is not to busy but be warned children are allowed in the swimming areas as well ( nit sauna or steam rooms ).
Neither my wife or myself tried the treatments as it us not our thing so I can't make an observation on this part of the hotel except to say again it looks pricey.
Would we go back yes, would we eat in the restaurant again no .
Overall I say go and enjoy the area and enjoy what you enjoy from a spa hotel.

Room Tip: Room 209 view but no balcony.

Spent here 3 days on my business trip so didn´t really get to have a proper thalasso experience but the hotel is fine in itself. Breakfasts and dinners are tasty but nothing really special for the price. Rooms are cosy and beds are very comfortable. My room had a nice shower, slippers, dressing gown and hairdryer. There are typical spa soap and shampoo also. I had a nice garden view and a little balcony with two chairs and a table. Overall my stay was enjoyable and I was agreeably surprised by its emloyees´ smiles.

Indeed, all of our clients staying at the hotel overnight can enjoy a shower gel bottle of the exclusive bio Carnac selection. We look forward to welcoming you again soon in Carnac, whether it’s for business or pleasure.

We just returned from a short stay in this hotel. Overall it was quite disappointing - so not sure we were unlucky as the others reviews seem more positive.

We stayed in the 4* part of the hotel - it is actually exactly the same facilities as the 3* but higher floor in the same building. Not worse paying extra. The room is expensive for what you get (we paid eur159 a night). It is very small and staying there with 2 adults and one kid was really tight - especially when you open the sofa bed. No space to walk so really annoying. We've asked the reception if this was the same in all the rooms and were told it was. However the 3* has some apartments / duplex so i assume it should be better for families.

The restaurant is over priced (menu is at eur 29) and you're better off eating at a local one nearby. (We found a few good ones with menu at eur 18). There are a few decent ones in the village.
We've tried to eat in the hotel restaurant on a couple of occasions but it was packed and the wait was very long. Note that the hotel does not make reservations for dinner and operates on a first come basis only. So while we were there this translated into having people literally queuing in front of the restaurant 15 minutes before it even opens!!!
The breakfast (not the cheapest - we were charged eur 14) is very basic for the price. They were serving only till 10. We came on a couple of occasions at 9.30 and had to ask a couple of time to get the buffet refill as there was barely no food left. Not what you expect at this price and in an hotel that states it is 4*

The spa is nice and the great point is that kids are allowed jn the pool and thalasso so this is very welcomed. However it does get very crowded.
The therapy rooms were nice and some good treatments.

Overall and because of the spa we ended up having a nice stay but not a place I would recommend - at that price

Thank you so much for your constructive feedback. Please note that you can eat at the Lounge, with the « escale » menu available for 20€, which includes a main, a dessert and a choice of cold or hot drinks! The continental breakfast is served between 10 and 12am - if you like to sleep in in the morning (includes 1 hot and 1 cold drink, 1 Viennese pastry or a piece of bread, Jam and butter).

Spent a night here with our little girl on our driving holiday. Stayed in the 2* side of the house which was clean & functional - but our buggy didn't fit into the room so we had to take baby out & unpack buggy in the hall before collapsing it & bringing it in. Irritating - particularly as the door had a strong automatic closing hinge... The room was big, clean & bright with a good bathroom. The hotel is a bit of a maze and we struggled to find our way around but did eventually get our bearings. The Thalasso spa is good, friendly & helpful staff who didn't speak English but didn't disdain my paltry attempts at French! 5 mins from the beach and the resort town of Carnac.

200 m. from the seaside, but no sea view; 300 m. from town center, but through a back-alley; thalasso, but small, a bit croweded; poor breakfast, but with nice view - but overall will do.

Ah, lack of parking places.
