"Lovely meal during the week of the restaurant"
Excellent meal with attentive service and good choices. The week of the restaurant is an opportunity to sample good quality food at reasonable prices. A location in the centre of the town with splendid views and the restaurant is part of the four star hotel.
"Great room with amazing views"
I would recommend staying on the second floor or higher where you get a fabulous view of the sea. The room was perfect, super bathroom with nice mosaics in the shower (although they could do with some sort of barrier to prevent water getting everywhere. Very nice staff. The breakfast buffet was very good, although they coud improve with real OJ rather than what they served. Very good value.
We chose this hotel among other more expensive options and do not regret our choice for one second. The Café de Paris is probably the best located hotel in Biarritz. The Aquarium and the Côte des Basques beach are less than a ten-minute walk away; and our two favorite spots for eating out (the Place Sainte-Eugénie and Les Halles - the indoor food market) reachable in a couple of minutes. Right in front of the hotel is a plaza overlooking the Grande Plage. The view from our room was fantastic, and covered a great stretch of ocean, some of the Grande Plage, and the lighthouse. The plaza is rather quiet and the nearest road is 30m behind the hotel: past ten PM, we could lounge on the terrace, listen to the waves, without being disturbed by any noise. We stayed in the "Suite Prestige Ocean", which was clean and spacious. Sleep quality was excellent: very comfortable king size bed and no noise from the adjacent rooms. The terrace is large, with two sun-loungers (smaller rooms/suites only have one). The atmosphere is not that of a luxury hotel, in a good way: the staff is not overzealous, but friendly, discreet and efficient. A couple of minor negative points: the room decor is a bit bland; and the breakfast buffet, in spite of covering all the bases, was below our expectations (we would have loved fresher and locally made options).
"Great location and fabulous view!"
We arrived by taxi from Biarritz airport. It was just a short stroll to the hotel which is on a pedestrianised area. Our sea view room on the second floor had a clear view over the Grand Plage towards the lighthouse. Just loved our location, 5 minute walk to the amazing market place (Les Halles) incredible displays of such fresh foodstuffs. All around the market there were various bars and cafes to explore. As I said any direction from the hotel took you somewhere to eat/shop/sit and stare/bathe. Don't expect it to look much from the outside - it doesn't! But our room was clean and roomy, plenty of wardrobe space. Lovely bathroom, separate toilet. Quirky lights and features. My only gripe was there was only one mirror and that was in the bathroom not much use when steamed up from showering!! It's a good job I can blow dry my hair with my eyes closed and don't wear makeup - I found the lack of a mirror most odd. Everything else was fine though. We didn't eat breakfast or dinner at hotel as there are too many amazing places around Biarritz to explore.
"Fantastic location and view"
We stayed for 3 nights in a junior suite. We had a great view overlooking the sea and square below. The bed was large and comfortable and we enjoyed the extra space in the room. The toilet was separate to the shower room, which is good except it could do with a basin in the toilet. We didn't eat here. Breakfast was pricey at €18 per person, we walked 5 minutes up to Halles where there is the market, bakeries, carrefour and ate by the beach and in our room. The location is perfect to get to everywhere. This is a hilly city, with steps and slopes everywhere, so anyone with mobility issues should be aware of this.
