A driver in a white van with a village club du soleil logo almost ran me over speeding while on my bike on wednesday august 19 at 10 am. Irresponsible and dangerous. On top of everything the driver honked.
Very good selection of food in the dining room, plenty of fresh vegtables and salades as well as the main courses.Rooms were clean . However the reception was not helpful , they refused to book taxi and even though it was a conference and everybody needed proper vat receipts , they failed to provide them , having been told at the time of paying( 3 months previous) that they would be required. When 75 people book a conference stay from 8 different European countries , they need to be accomodated. Front of house staff need work for off season bookings . Its a gated complex so its quiet from the surrounding traffic etc.
The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff are helpful.It offers access to their Jacuzzi and spa. The metro is walking distance to see the attractions. Buy the 24 hour metro ticket,it's worth it. They have a water warmer the room for coffee and tea. However,I asked for more coffee sachets the next day and the staff said they can't give me more because it only available the first day. It doesn't make sense! The hotel should also have an english translation for the receipts, maps and brochures.
This is not a hotel, you don't have room service, rooms are cleaned and sheets changed only once a week. It's a village, I think it's a different and typical French concept of hospitality. But it was the best experience I could think of if you want to spend 2 weeks in Marseille like I did, with two small children (4 and 6 y.). Because you can stay at this kind of resort, with multiple activities for adults and kids' club for the children or you just step outside, take the bus or the shuttle to the tram station, and you are in a nice big French city. So, one of the big plus of the "hotel" is the City Pass you get, so that you can take all sorts of public transportation and free entrance to several museums (to all of those to which I went), and also discounts or free entrance to other tourist attractions like a hop-on hop-off bus. It is worthy! Additionally, I chose the all-inclusive formula, so that especially the kids could have all the 3 meals in the hotel. The kids club is very well taken care of. The personnel who supervise the kids are very joyful but have authority. The kids had weekly a show (spetacle) to prepare for during the week and to present on Friday night, and the club also offered picnic experiences for the smaller ones at the Parc Longchamp (which is close by) and visits to interesting "amusement" parks to the older ones. My only observation about the kids club is that my kids have not enjoyed eating with them. At first, they restricted the options they offered to the kids (a lot of french fries, nuggets and pasta) and then, once a mom complained about it, they then wanted the kids to eat the crudités (raw vegetables) first; and they also just offered fruits as deserts (and the desert buffet was really an attraction). So my kids preferred to eat with me to be able to choose from the great variety of food offered at the buffet. About the food: there is always a big variety of salads, hot dishes, cheeses and deserts. You should not expect French food every day (menus at dinner are thematic) nor the quality of a bistro or of home food, because they really cook for about 200 - 300 people a meal (it was high season). Breakfast was a bit boring especially for people who prefer gluten free food. If I rated it overall, I would say, they serve good, but not delicious, food. My kids were usually very satisfied. At the restaurant, they just serve wine and water. You can go to the bar to have other kinds of drinks, with and without alcohol. My kids loved the French sirops and me, the pastis. The swimming pool was heated but the water was still very cold. In addition, it was not that big, so it was always very crowded with kids. But ok, they had fun! Smaller kids also enjoyed the outdoor play area as well. Another plus is La Friche, a cultural center, right across the street. They have there an outdoor play area for kids, a skate park, a restaurant, a café and a bookstore. It is really interesting. I thought at first that the hotel’s personnel was a bit cold, but after staying for some days, we kind of got used to each other and they were always very helpful. The kids’ supervisors at the kids’ club were really nice, but also Gaultier, who was responsible for all the work out classes, and Charlotte, who was the local tour guide. Last but not least, there is a small work out room (gym) which still lacks a treadmill, mirrors and a music player, but was ok. And there is a “wellbeing” center with a Jacuzzi, saunas, which was very pleasant and where children were not allowed. 4 small cons: the shuttle was great but only worked until 7 p.m. (as the local bus line, so one needed to take a taxi, if he stayed until later outside); there is no laundry facility; they do not offer towels for the pool area; the lamps at the parking lot are a bit too strong for the rooms at the first floor facing it.…
