Stayed for 1 week. Location - good, about 5 mins from beach, 10 mins from Le Grand plage area, 15 to La Lydia area. Easy, pleasant walks. Hotel has free wi-fi, TV only has French channels, swimming pool, can eat breakfast on the terrace. Receptionists speak little English - try your French, you'll get by. Reception closes at 7pm but...

Oh dear. I have read all the reviews on trip advisor since 2011 and for 5 YEARS the comments have been generally the same. The pictures are deceiving internet vs actual. We booked this hotel primarily for it's pool and it was unuseable. The chairs and sunbeds need scrubbing down the pool area needs sweeping and plants cutting back. The... More

We were in the hotel for Electrobeach Festival in July, for a weekend. Normal rooms, with tv, air conditioner and private wc. Swimming pool out of order in July. 5 minutes walking from beach, 15 from city centre. Accept visa. Speaks english.

We couldn't find a hotel on the coast of France while driving to Spain and this is what our travel agent found us. It was cheap and there is a reason why! The website looks great but if you read the tripadvisor info you get the real idea. Thin towels only one per person, no hand towels, bedrooms clean with... More

Tired, old, uncared for and depressing. On arrival, the area appeared to be some kind of downgrade Butlins holiday park. A walk to the room, past carts stacked high with dirty laundry ended at the end of a corridor, overlooking the green, algae filled outdoor pool. The room was adequate, with air con and electric blinds, but below us the... More

Stayed here as all others were fully booked - one night only, as a family using 2 rooms. Price for the area is as expected - but should be less. Staff friendly & helpful. Hotel itselft shabby, tired & seedy. Rooms standard size double, paper thin walls so mind your neighbours, shower room not for the faint hearted. Breakfast very... More

I booked this hotel for one night as a stopover before we crossed the French border with Spain. The website certainly made it look more spacious and glamorous than it actually was. Reception requested we pay on arrival. This we weren't expecting and found slightly unusual. The room was basic and smelled of smoke (despite being asked on the website... More
