We booked this hotel early on in the year and with a falling heart i watched the bad reviews build up. I was dreading this holiday so much due to the bad reviews that i was having sleepless nights.
How stupid was I???
Firstly ... The OUTSIDE swimming pool. Children are allowed in this pool at anytime during the day. There are no restrictions what so ever. My children wore normal swimming trunks as did other children and grown men. Our boys spent many hours on this pool and loved it.
The staff are great!! Did what they could to answer any question. Smiled, served us politely at the bar and were just fine.
The restaurant was clean and breakfast was OK. It offered an assortment of breads, croissant, fruit, yoghurts, pancakes , ham.and cheese. Most importantly they served real coffee. No complaints. We did not eat lunch or dinner here so unable to comment.
The hotel itself is a 5 minute walk to the beach and 15 minutes to the main promenade lined with bars and restaurants. You can either walk into town by going through the back of the hotel and along the footpath at the back of the beach or along the road. We often walked in one way and back the other. Both ways are a flat easy enjoyable walk.
The rooms - There is no air conditioning bit we were told we could have a fan however we fell asleep with the balcony door open and it was very comfortable. The room we had was large. We had a bcony overlooking the pool, forest and sea. The room was for four of us (2 adults, 2 children) and was plenty big enough. My husband and i were in a huge double bed and there was a double sofa bed already pulled out for the children. We anticipated this so took a blow up single mattress for one of our children (he has eczema and figits all night, so nit great to share with) and he slept very well on it. Having this extra mattress made no.difference to the room. It was very spacious.
We had a great holiday here. The hotel is really nice, we spent alternative days at the beach or by the pool, the resort has some lovely restaurants and is great for an evening cocktail and the hotel room balconies are ideal for sitting on at night sharing a bottle of wine.
All four of us have said we would love to return and i think we probably will. I love France and i love the French peoole and this was such a fabulous holiday. Thank you x less
