Stayed 5 nights in June 2011.
Small lovely clean quiet hotel right at the Channel shore. If you book seaview room you may open the window and fall to sleep, and wake to whisper - or enchanting uproar - of tides, and seagulls" yell.
We even had water drops getting to the window on one especially stormy night.
One may monitor everchanging level of tide which goes back and forth several times a day. Only small pedestrian promenade divides you from the water - the traffic goes on the other side of the hotel.
Unfortunately there was no balcony in our room - the balcony at this place would be a great asset.
Can not say anything about swimming - the June was quite cold and rainy.
The rooms are small and bare, so are the bathroom, but clean, comfortable and good-working. Beds are OK.
. The corridors are incredibly small and narrow even by French 3-star standards.
It"s about 15-20 minute walk to the Old City of St-Malo. which has not only old fortress and cathedrals, but a great variety of restaurants and shops.
Can not say anything about the hotel's restaurant - we did not take breakfasts or lunches there.
The hotel does have free parking lot. It was not big, but was full only once - it was a weekend and we came back very late from a day trip, but it took me 10 minutes to find a free public space 300 meters further down the road.
The place is a good base for exploring the Bretagne's highlights - first of all magnificient old town of Dinan, natural wonders of the Red Granite Shore, and Saint-Michelle Abbey - which is less than an hour drive, although formally in Normandy.
Well it should be noted that all these may refer to many hotels in the area, we just happened to stay in Antinea - as a comfy and not-so-standard place to sleep between day trips.
The staff is quite friendly and eager to help.
May be it would have been more comfortable inside Old Town, but we needed a quiet place and a guaranteed parking.
