“Location yes, rooms a big no”
Reviewed 8 July 2005

Agree with first review as far as De Haan and location of hotel are concerned - probably nicest resort on Belgian coast and there are only 2 hotels in this town which are really on the seaside promenade.
However, it made me wonder, did this hotel have a complete makeover? Stayed there last summer and went back to De Haan this year but to another hotel, Auberge de Rois did not look renovated to us...

We found the interior terrible. A timewarp back to the 60s, hideous furniture and claustrophobic bathroom. The hotel seems a hotspot for Germans who think they are worth it and who feel flattered by the staff's attention. This, however, only seems to last when you play their game and find everything great.

It is expensive and you have to book half-board which we found pretty restrictive.

We will certainly not come back to this hotel.

If you pine for the days when you could visit a seaside resort that was not only safe for children, clean, tidy, civililised, a proper beach, with proper sandcastle building type sand, well supervised sea swimming and not taken over by greed and over development, then pine no more. We discovered the delights of the Belgian Coast some time ago, when our children were small and we visited Sunparks, still going strong I might add, and amongst the places we visited was the little gem I am refering to, De Haan.
This small coastal town is an absolute delight. Not just for the style of the buildings and the way the place is laid out, it evokes a feeling of wellbeing and calm, and that's a rarity these days. I don't intend to champion the virtues of De Haan, of which there are many, as there are websites you can visit which will do a far better job than I can. But if you do intend to visit, I can do no better than recommend you to a most delightful Hotel, the Auberge des Rois Beach Hotel.
When a hotel says it's close to the beach, this hotel is so close that you can put a rod and line out of your bedroom window and catch a passing flatfish for your dinner! Well perhaps I'm getting a bit carried away here but it is, right on the beach. It is a four star hotel and has earned every one of it's stars. Our room did not overlook the sea and the manager, George, was most apologetic that it was not one of the better rooms. I have to tell you that if there are better rooms, I would very much like to see one. Clean, tidy, lovely fittings, a very modern bathroom, very good maid service, just the way a good hotel should be, but so very few manage to be.
Every evening there is a five course gourmet dinner, served in the sea view restaurant, where again you experience the delights of being waited upon by people who are really pleased that you are there. The food is a mouth watering selection of fish, crustaceans and various meat dishes, finished of with a superb cheese selection and sweet concoctions. The food is prepared by one of the hotel owners, Chef Jean-Paul Bentin, with his wife Petra undertaking to ensure that everything runs like clockwork and who is on hand to greet you for breakfast and to wish you good night as you depart for your room after a nightcap in the well appointed bar.
It is so rare to come across this level of service and commitment these days, that I am happy to recommend this Resort and this Hotel.
