There is nothing better than a small, privately run family hotel. A hotel that warmly welcomes children with charming rooms and a good central location. What a shame then to find on arrival that there was a smoking room and the smoking room was the bar. This immediately meant that, with two young children, we were excluded from the bar. What I don't understand is why the smokers have the privilege of being able to smoke in the bar when they are clearly in the minority (2 during our stay). The position of the bar, meant that the smell of smoke was the first thing you noticed on arrival and the first thing you noticed when coming down in the morning. The pool at the hotel is lovely (though note that children under 8 won't be able to stand) and the breakfasts are really fantastic. The owners are very friendly and have done a great job, and we hope that on our next visit, the smoke will have disappeared!!

Small but beautiful boutique hotel with special attention for interior details. The location is an ideal starting point to go for bicycle rides to Brugge (20 to 25 km) or alongside the coast line. Don't forget to visit Diksmuide or Ieper (Ypres) and its war graves.
There's a heated swimmingpool. You can only have breakfast in the hotel, so for other meals you will have to go look for a restaurant in the neighbourhood. The concierge will help you with that if you like, but if you can, try to make reservations with "l'Espérance" or "Rabelais" as they are probably two of the best restaurants of De Haan.
Staff and owners are extremely kind en polite and do whatever they can to make your stay pleasant. There's a smoking and non-smoking "honesty" bar where you can rest from your trips you did during the day. Don't forget to ask the owner to see the very large war bunker that is hidden next to the hotel and used as a garage for bikes etc.

I had read a review of the hotel in a Sunday newspaper travel supplement where it had been described as a "boutique" hotel.

I am pleased to say that the reality is far nicer. Carpe Diem is a friendly, family run hotel with comfortable rooms and an excellent small bar.

Whilst most of the other residents were adult, our 8 year old son was made extremely welcome. Our Ralph Lauren Suite included a small private child's bedroom which was an unexpected bonus.

The pool looked nice, but as we stayed in April, was not open.

De Haan is a quiet resort aimed at families. Everything was pretty much closed by 10:00 pm (which is fine by me). One evening we left a restaurant at 10:15 pm and the town was completely deserted.

A lovely hotel in a lovely resort.
