“Excellent Beach Location”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

What this hotel's rooms lack decor is more than compensated by the wonderful beach side location. There is no road between the hotel and the beach so it's ideal for families and those who wish to escape traffic noise. Breakfast is taken outside on the pool terrace, which is sheltered if the weather happens to not be in your favour. The customers tend to be older rather than a young crowd. This has the major benefit of ensuring that service is good and the offering of food at breakfast is broad and of good quality. We werer not so impressed by the evening meals available as you feel you are being 'processed' through in 1.5 hours flat along with the rest of the crowd! But there are lots of options for a good value evening meal overlooking the beach nearer to the nightlife . We come back to this hotel for a few nights each year to relax and find it always delivers exactly what we need: a quiet environment with good service in attractive surroundings. Give it a try - in our opinion it's the best that Argeles has to offer!

Room Tip: Have a beach view room

Stayed there for 5 nights at the end of August. Got a standard room in a villa with a view to the courtyard.
Hotel is perfectly located concerning the beach - only a few meters and you are on the wide sand beach (notice, the sand is coarse, not fine, as I supposed before). Sea was clean, and entrance quiet good for children.
Hotel is 15-minute walk far from the city center. It's ok, because you can avoid the noise of crowds of tourists on weekends, but creates some inconvenience, taking into consideration the fact that food in the hotel is overpriced (for me it looked heavily overpriced; big Carrefour store is in 7-10 minutes by car).
Room was quite spacious and had a terrace with view on the Pyrenees (for me it looked better than having a “sea view” in a villa actually facing the road and the hotel itself). No bath, only shower. No shampoo (only specific shower gel and lotion). Walls are thing, so in the night you can definitely hear your neighbors speaking (and not only speaking…). Not the best trained stuff as you can expect (It looked for me that they hired students for part time job; you can feel it at the fool strength in the restaurant). Changed used plastic glasses and floor-towel only when I asked for.
P.S. Swimming pool is much, much, much less than at the pictures of the hotel…))))

I have read the reviews about this hotel and have always found Monsieur Lormond and his staff pleasant and very helpful - even when I want my steak burned to a cinder! They have been unfailingly polite and I have never met beligerence from any member of staff. Neither have I ever witnessed any preference being shown to French guests. the breakfast is superb and the large buffet lunches which are served twice a week may be a little expensive but they are well worth what you pay for them. Our rooms (and we have had various ones) have always been clean and well maintained The little road trains stop right outside the hotel, which mean that it is possible to get around the resort and the nearby village without the problems of car parking. sadly my husband died recently and we will no longer be able to go there for our `special days` each year but I am sure that there will be a warm welcome if I go alone.

The hotel was great. It's located right on the beach. A 20 minute walk down the promenade will take you past the town center and to the Port, where many restaurants are located. Along the way, only 5 minutes from the hotel, are many nighttime attractions like a small amusement park for kids and restaurants/shops in the town.
The hotel was quiet and elegant. The staff were friendly, particularly one older gentleman who was on the night shift. He spoke English and took great care of us getting us a drink in the evening and answering questions about the area. The hotel restaurant is poolside and was lovely. Breakfast was limited, but perfectly adequate. Lunch was delicious and reasonably priced.
Rooms were small and nothing special, but they were adequate. Nothing to rave or complain about. Free wifi was a plus.
Overall, this hotel offered a really pleasant experience.

We took a suite overlooking the ocean and it was just great!!! Big room with lounge area, lots of windows. Everything was great from the moment we arrived until we left. The staff was incredible and made sure everything was great for us... We tried the restaurant for supper and we we're pleased as well, food was delicious. It looked like a big family working together... Plus, with the sea right at your feet it's just greatttttt!!!! Will go back again for sure!!
