"Quirky vibrant hotel with warm welcoming staff."
We stayed for 2 nights in mid October and given that we had read some pretty average reviews were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.The hotel is very modern and in our opinion 'quirky' but if you like bright and vibrant decor then this is for you. Our room was great, had a balcony overlooking the small courtyard - very pleasant sitting out listening to the piped music from below!! The room was spotlessly clean, hi-tec shutter blinds kept out the morning sun which helped for a long and restful sleep! The hotel is ideally situated for the beach, promenade, railway station and a 15 to 20 minute walk takes you right into the old town where there is a vast array of fine bars and restaurants to pick from. Finally we would like to say a huge thank you to Sandrine who greeted us on arrival with a lovely smile and was also available to chat to us and give us personal advice on restaurants etc throughout our short stay. Nothing was too much trouble! Great Place!
"Strange too expensive for state of hotel"
Stayed in hotel 10 days ago first room there were serious plumbing problems no water ! However we were promptly moved to another Both rooms tired first was bizarre very small no where to put anything Second better but still strange lighting system not particularly functional and no discrete lighting for reading in bed! Ok the hotel is fairly central the sun terrace was very pleasant swimming pool a big tub Didn't do breakfast more fun to go to local cafe Don't think I'd recommend in its present state
"Very good for what we wanted and has potential to be excellent "
We stayed for 3 nights in September and for 2 females on a long weekend it was great. The staff were very helpful (recommending restaurants, booking taxis, offering assistance and advice) and the location was brilliant. Close to the beach, not too far from the main promenade and an easy walk to the old town for the nightlife. Our room was very comfortable and clean and had a fun design. We are excited to see what changes are made as it is need of a bit of updating but has the potential to be amazing. The roof terrace was nice but there were no bar staff up there so we went elsewhere for drinks. Overall a really good find. Decent price for a weekend in a city and ideal for a girls weekend away.
The hotel is a bit worn out - the rooms, which must have looked very good when they were first fitted out, are in need of a refresh. Leaking showers, peeling paint, noisy air conditioner, etc. These fairly minor gripes could be ignored if it wasn't for the staff. Each member of staff we dealt with came across as disinterested to the point of being rude. They gave the impression that you being there was an inconvenience to them. They also came across as incompetent and without much idea of what was going on. Given the number of comments on TripAdvisor to the same effect, its odd that the hotel management don't invest in some training for their staff. Also, note that access to the private beach is not included in the price of the hotel - only a token discount is given to the standard rate. Whilst, to be fair, nothing on the hotel's website explicitly says that access to the beach is included, you'd be forgiven if you got that impression before you booked. I've no idea why this hotel has a four star rating from French rating agency. It was far worse than other four start hotels we stayed in on the trip.
"Terrible Management, poor customer service, over priced, poor quality, false advertising"
We paid £170 per night for 5 nights. Advert on hotels.com said: * Private Beach * free water * sound proof rooms Private beach is 17 euros pr person per day!!! WTF I paid a premium thinking this was included. No free water - only a free very small drink on arrival. We could hear everything in our room, not sound proof. Complained and management offered a free glass of wine'' Pool on the top floor is just a plunge pool, and no bar when we got there. Also our room was not serviced the 1st night. rooms are 'funky', but really have a hospital sterilised feel to them.. in need of a refurb, the shower was mouldy and limescale on it. And no extractor fan in the toilet!! I would never stay here again, management could have done something to help us feel better and they failed, especially since the advert is incorrect. we complained to Hotels.com and they gave us £60 back. This is not a lot but it was something. Beach bar is lovely and the staff there are nice, but we feel ripped off by this hotel and will not be visiting any of their chains ever again.
