We stayed in one of the 'charming' rooms which was located next to the restaurant. Unfortunately it was extremely noisy due to the scraping of cast iron chairs in the restaurant which seemed to start at about 6.30am every morning - not very conducive to holiday lie-ins! The room itself was small and very averagely decorated. The bathroom was functional but old and could have used a bit of a make-over. It also had a bit of an odd smell.
The pool was small but heated and because we were staying the tail end of September it wasn't too busy. The gardens surrounding the pool and restaurant are very pretty. The restaurant itself was very prettily decorated and the food was lovely. Buffet style breakfast and then dinner with buffet starters, cheese and dessert courses and then a choice of either a fish or meat main. We stayed 10 nights and didn't get the same main course twice. All of the staff were really friendly apart from one of the waitresses who was really quite rude which was a shame as it sometimes spoilt an otherwise brilliant dining experience.
The location of the hotel itself was good if you want to be really close to the beach. it's also quite close to St Martin which was lovely. The Ile de Re is very pretty and we had a great time cycling all around it along the multitude of cycle paths - either along the sea or through vineyards.
Would definitely return to the Ile de Re and the Hotel Plaisir to eat but not sure if the food justifies the cost of the rooms and would definitely request a room as far away from the restaurant as possible.
