Stayed here for a week in June 2012. Quiet location about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Collioure, but nice, small beach only 5 mins away. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good sized, clean room with balcony on car park level, lovely views from the balcony - a great place to unwind at the end of the day. Large, comfortable bed and good air-con in room. A mini-bar might have been nice, but at the price I'm not complaining. Bath/shower modern and everything worked. Swimming pool clean, open all day and just about warm enough. As others have mentioned, car parking is difficult in Collioure and L'Arapède is unusual in having a good-sized car park - we never had trouble finding a space. As is often the case in France, there was no hot food at breakfast, but the range was better than most. Dinner is usually served on the sea-view terrace. We ate there on 4 occasions and had 2 good meals, 1 less good (very tough beef steak) and one superb (beautifully tender lamb). The set menu has no choice and the carte is short - if we'd eaten in every night, it would have been difficult to avoid having the same thing twice. Despite that, all in all, highly recommended and we're hoping to go back within the next 2-3 years.
