Ok so i'm a student of a school in Dorset and our school had planned a study tour around the area. About a week before we left, my friend and i decided to look at the reviews of the hotel and were scared to go because they all sounded really bad.
People have been saying things about dodgy alleys that you have to walk down to get there, well the only thing dodgy is that there is the number 69 painted on the walls.
The staff are very kind but the bald one on front desk seemed to have CCTV on us the whole time.
Its also kind of a weird hotel because the restaurant and bar and everything else was on the top floor but it wasn't too bad. That area also had other things like a pool table and FREE WIFI omg FREE WIFI. So yeah, not too bad.
It was a very clean place except from the fact the sun beds were awful and old and mouldy but yeah.
The food could be improved however, it was pretty much the same all the way through our holiday and there were no labels telling you what the food actually was so i just stuck to eating chips for a week but they had a freezer full of ice cream tubs so eat as many of them as you can too.

If you are a student like me and you are reading the reviews, don't panic because its not as bad as they make out, the TV's have a music channel that plays mostly english chart music, they have free ice cream and free wifi so you cant really ask for more and you wont be in the hotels for much of your time anyway if you are going with a school.
But if you are looking for a two week family holiday, this is not the place. Go away, save up some more money and go next year and find somewhere nicer with a pool and things like that.

just returned from a weeks stay at this hostel cos that's all it is im afraid most rooms have no balcony just sliding windows no pool or entertainment food is poor to say the least breakfast. is toast, cereal ,cheese pate, porkshoulder, and chopped pork evening meals are fish vegetables onion rings chips and salad . lots of French schoolkids use it as a stopover only thing that's good is its central location rooms are clean and fresh towels everyday. but that's about it .

Room Tip: stay at a different hotel

Close to the train station and very central. Old style hotel noises heard through the corridor and rooms. Sometimes no towels left but Reception staff very friendly and welcome always. Good value for money.

The hotel is amongst shops, bars, restaurants and the everyday markets which was great. The rooms were clean but very basic, the beds were uncomfortable because the mattress was like concrete, the walls are like paper they're that bad that I could hear conversations in the next room. I didn't eat at the hotel after being put off by another visitor who was complaining that the fish wasn't being cooked tidy and the cues were far to long because there was only one staff member working the restaurant and the bar. The bar which is directly opposite the restaurant was poor, not much variety and didn't look to clean either. Overall- location is great but the hotel is more like a hostel so don't expect hotel standards.

Just got back from staying at the Kristal, would never go there again. Hotel was spotless and staff very friendly, The food oh dear what can I say, we ate out at restuarants we could not eat the food at the Kristal it was so bland and you could not tell what you were eating, If you are looking for quite dont stay here, it is on the main through road traffic all night and day. The beach was wonderful and the cafes and restuarant are right there and the staff are always very helpful taking your towls and laying them on your sunbed. sunbeds at the Kristol DONT go near them they ares sooooo dirty. Dont think about taking your food out on the terrace (by the resturant) staff will take it off you NOT ALLOWED. sorry but this is the way it was for us. bedding was not changed for the whole ten days we were there
