“A great getaway is table steaks!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I had no idea what to expect! I was pleased with this hotel in every way. The staff was friendly, and always attentive. The hotel and room decor is a hit, the lake side view is terrific. Nothing is really over done but everything is there and spacious, clean and easily accessible. The food quality and choice another plus. The hotel restaurant the "Roc" features a hot lava stone where you can cook your own steak at your table, a different but neat experience. An all around enjoyable stay and a definite win with your significant other, as it offers the right amount of fun and relaxation. You will have plenty to do, spa, hot tubs, boating, hiking etc. I am willing to bet you will score points on this trip.

Room Tip: Be sure to get lakeside room with the comfy balcony.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in this resort. We spent 2 nights in the emotion side with lake view. I prefer the view from the emotion more than the evolution side since the emotion side overlooks the pool and the lake. The room is very clean and the decor is modern. There are 3 restaurants in the resort but I highly recommend that you reserve in advance especially during the weekend.

We booked a one night autumn getaway which included our dinner and breakfast the next day.
Our room was perfect. When I booked the room I wrote in special instructions "due to severe allergies we require hypoallergenic bedding"
I was very pleased when we arrived to know not only does our room have the hypoallergenic bedding it also had wood flooring (no carpeting).
One of the bonuses with this resort is their hot tubs, heated pool, saunas and spa services.
Our dinner was excellent along with the service.
The next day we had a buffet style breakfast.
This was a wonderfully relaxing getaway surrounded by the beautiful autumn colours.

Me and my girlfriend absolutely loved our stay at esterel!

We stayed in the emotion hotel. The suite was wonderful and big, with a fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee machine, as well as full sets of dishes. The decoration was very modern. We had reserved online for a simple golf-course view suite, but when we arrived we asked if they had any suite with private Jacuzzi available, and we upgraded for another 100$/night.Yes, it is a bit pricey. But you get more than your money's worth! Our suite, being with private jacuzzi, was on the first floor, and we could access the pool area or the private beach in seconds! They have two pools, not deep but really good to cool off, and a few hot tubs that we did not use, since we had our own. There is also a bar by the pool but it didn't open during our stay unfortunately. I have read some reviews were people said it was not insulated well and that it wasn't quiet. I will have to disagree. We didn't hear anything whether being from the hallways or from rooms upstairs, or from rooms next to us.

We went with the Gourmet Package, which is totally worth it, when you look at the prices of the menus. The gourmet package includes a five course meal in one of their 3 restaurants, and a buffet-style breakfast. We were there for 2 nights, so we went with L'Ultime the first night, and The Roc the second night. I personally enjoyed the food very much, although my girlfriend did not enjoy everything, but we both loved the beef at The Roc. The concept of the restaurant is interesting, where you cook your own meat on a hot stone. Both restaurants ( we didn't go to the bistro) are right on top of the lake, wonderful view.

Staff is very friendly, very understanding and they do all to make sure you are satisfied. They are not all perfectly bilingual but we did not have any difficulties understanding them or being understood, as they do speak english.

Overall, I would totally recommend this resort to anyone looking for a romantic getaway, or even just a getaway with some friends. The location is really good and you feel completely away when you are there. Lots of corporate events going on there, so don't be surprise to see a lot of people, but it still is very quiet and very well organized.

Weare making this resort our yearly summer getaway from now on.

Loved every minute, gorgeous place and very helpful staff! L'esterel is a beautiful location and the hotel is right on the lake. The facility is very well kept and the room was large and very nice. Big balcony. All the staff were helpful and friendly.

My best friend and I stayed one night at this hotel and absolutely loved it. The room was beautiful, well appointed. There was a hide-away bed in the living room which was perfect for our set-up. Very large room, and I had reserved one of their basic room, so in my opinion, for a "basic" room, this exceeded my expectations. I don't know if the hotel was not busy, but we did see a few people, I don't recall a hotel being this quiet. No noise at all. That doesn't happen often, and I loved it! Didn't use any of the facilities however so I can't comment on them. I will return!

Yes, the settings, food and lication are impeccable, but I cannot believe how thin the room's "ceilings" are! You can literally guess where the person is going in her room!

I stayed at the resort when they reopened and loved my experience. I've been twice (or three times?) since and have been disappointed every time! You can't hear anything in your neighbor's room but everything from the hall n above! Both times, I asked for a room on a higher floor, both times they gave me a room on the 3rd floor...which is really a floor higher than reception (because of the beach access). Tjis time around, it was so unbearable that I called the front desk to change rooms. They did offer to give us an executive room...but on the ground floor (different floor, same issue!). They then offered to change us to a top floor room, but the next day. We agreed. The next day they called and offered to change us to a second to last floor room. When we asked why we couldn't get the room they had offered the previous day, they said it was because we'd have to leave our room before the other one would be ready (!?). Since changing room to still have people above us would change anything, we stayed in our original room.

The biggest shame? The lady at the front desk never asked us how our stay had been when we checked out (they hadnt asked either on our last stay....)

Will we go back? Not sure.... I do love the setting though :(
