We went there in September 2014, wanted to eat lunch at the restaurant and ask to get a room there for three nights. What happened was the worst and cockiest reception I ever experienced in a hotel. And I have seen quite some in my life. We went into the wide lobby, decently dressed iI must add, said our "Bonjour"... More

The first hurdle to take before actually arriving at this place is to figure out how to park your car. It took me 15 minutes to find a spot, and then 15 minutes to get there! There is valet parking but this is so expensive you might as well book a taxi to get there in the first place. As... More

I have been to that restaurant every summer for the past few years. The view on the highest sand dune of Europe always amazes me. I actually have grown in the area and jumped the dune countless of times but that view from the restaurant simply never gets old. Being said that, they have a ridiculous amount of people coming...

I stayed there for a special event, and i was overwhelmed by the beauty of the location, on the dune, mesmerizing views of the Ocean, and the hotel, luxuriously designed by Philippe Starck. I had stopped being a fan of Starck, because i think he does the same thing everywhere, but I must admit that "the Coorniche" is maybe his... More

A group of very experienced travellers regarded this as good as anything we had been to in the world. We were blessed with a beautful spring day and a table outside. We had a group of 21 and they handled the large number very well. We stayed 2 hours longer than planned. The attention to detail, food & wine was... More

We have just returned from lunch at la coorniche. It was superb, the attention to detail, the service and we had a lovely view on a table by the pool overlooking the dune and the sea. Waiters were very attentive and we got our order organised quickly. The wine prices were reasonable considering the quality and ambience of the place... More

Many reviews describe the view as stunning. They are all true. It is breath-takingly beautiful. We didn't try a full meal (3 course menu €58), but we did go for a drink on the beautifully (Stark) decorated terrace overlooking the famous "Dune" itself.

we cancelled a reservation made in error a month ahead of time. The hotel said they would refund the money if the room was booked.. We then tried to rebook a room for the exact same time and was told the hotel was fully booked. In the end the hotel kept our money, but refused on 3 occasions to let... More

My boyfriend and I booked to spend a night here and ended up staying for two and it was such a relaxing experience. There are double sun loungers for guests with the best views of the sand dunes and paragliders. The rooms are modern and clean. The food at the restaurant is very good but the service can be slow....

A perfect summer day, and a spectacular location and good food, and the terrace restaurant looking over the basin and the dune is magical. Parking not easy particularly on a busy beach weather day. They will come and get you in a golf cart, though this service is very French in that it is a bit hit and miss, and... More
