We stayed here as a group of 13, with 8 adults and 5 kids. The rooms are good, a fridge would have been great and there is only a fan so if the weather were a bit hotter it would have been too hot I think. However, it was clean and had everything you really need….my friends room had a broken light and no soap..which took 2 nights there, with a request each day before it was finally replaced tho. Breakfast was good, it was included in our price and really had all the continental stuff you need…except good coffee…although on this holiday we are sort of used to that!!! We are definately spoilt in Australia!!! Here's a big tip…we went to disneyland both days and the food situation there is DIABOLICAL…i mean INSANITY…a third of the restaurants were closed and what was open had lines so insanely long it took us about 45mins to get a crepe…we did see after leaving there were restaurants outside disneyland…wish we knew before…but take a few croissants from breakfast so u can have a quick snack at disneyland with out queuing half the day. Service in this part of Paris is practically non existent….perhaps they are preparing you for the queues you will experience in disneyland…but in the hotel and the theme parks, staff moved as slow as snails. What was great at Explorers was the pool, although you have to wear speedo type bathers…which u can buy there for 12euro….was quite funny seeing my husbands reaction…and then him in the shorts!!! Hilarious!! So take some with you…no shorts at all, even for girls. Once you're in, the facilities are super fun for the kids. There is also a great indoor play land which was perfect as you can see right in, the kids play and our group of adults had a couple of drinks and got pizza's for dinner…which were pretty yummy! I didn't feel too secure there though…we heard a couple of people telling reception some items were stolen from their room, my friend put her computer in at reception while we were out…i locked them in my suitcase. The housekeeping staff ignore the do not disturb signs as half our group had these on when they left in the morn and all had made beds when they got back. Still, there are really good facilities and they let us hang around and use the facilities for a good six hours after checkout while we were waiting for our flight…there is great locked luggage storage facilities. The price is really fantastic for the area. Be careful of the outside playground, our friends son was climbing when the bolt came out and he fell to the ground on his head…could have been bad…thankfully it wasn't…however the manager on duty didn't seem to fussed. Two other things…..rooms are very noisy..,if you have kids you are probably used to noise….but the worst thing…seriously seriously bad WIFI. They say they have it…..but if you are planning on working while the kids are asleep…it won't happen.
All in all…I would definitely research other hotels before I booked explorer again…but I wouldn't rule out going there again if I could get it really cheap, as we did this time. Kids loved it!
